    What does it look like on the refrigerator??? Are they usually where you can reach them? Are they in the back of the refrigerator? Thanks for your response! ;)

    if it's not under the kitchen sink(should be the small water line with turn knob)look for a turn off knob behind the frig. near the wall or look by the water heater if in garage and see if you can follow the line-mike

There is a thick sticky black substance leaking from my refrigerator for the past two weeks on the left front side. Frigidaire model p/n 241543966


Hello Melanie;


My name is Peter. I am a retired field service technician.

You do not have a refrigerant leak. Refrigerant is clear in color.

You have a water leak. The black sticky substance is either coming from your bottom condenser cooling coil or just general dirt under your refrigerator that accumulates over time. The coil under your refrigerator collects dirt as well.

You need to pull the refrigerator out so you can get behind it.
Unscrew the bottom back cover. Inspect for the water leak source. Your condensate drain pan may be leaking or dislodged.

The water line to your ice maker may be leaking.

Your water supply shut off valve to your refrigerator may be leaking.

My refrigerator is leaking water making noise and not making ice


It sounds like you have a leak (dry rot plastic tubing) on the ice maker water line. The leaking water is being picked up by you condenser fan near the water valves and probably causing the noise.
First, turn the water shut off valve to the refrigerator off.
You have a dangerous situation here. You need to stop the water leak. If the water leak gets to the electrical components of your unit, well it is dangerous!
You will be safe for now if you shut off the water.
You need a skilled technician to fix the problem. Just shut the water supply to the refrigerator off.
My name is Peter, retired Sears Service Refrigeration Technician. Pull the unit out so you can remove the lower back cover behind the refrigerator.

The pan at the bottom to hold water (Condensation?) is leaking. Never leaked before. We pulled out the fridge (Its on the freezer side) cannot pull it out. Water dumped. It took 2 /3 days to fill up...


Hi,
The normal run of the fridge will not normally fill the pan, so you have a different source. In this model the water valve is next to the pan. Either you have a leaking water valve or a bad connection to the water valve. Either way the problem you will find is the water valve or line is the cause. Look from the from with a flashlight under the the freezer door, dispense water from the door and watch the valve.

Good Luck

My matag model # mzd2766ge side by side has been leaking water on the floor. This happens only sometimes but by the time we notice its a big puddle on the floor under my cabinets. is something blocked up...


if it has ice/water in the unit,check the hoses going from the supply line at the inlet valve on the refrigerator rear section,if theres a hole in the tube,when the ice maker calls for water to fill the ice trays it will leak out this pin hole during the time the water supply valve is open and then shut off when the valve closes due to no pressure on the line then,thats probably the reason the puddles not always there

Water dispenser is leaking on the floor


this may be a bad valve . if the water valve located in the back of frig has failed . ( does not shut off completly . this will push water through the lines and out of the foutain . the shut of is not at the foutain but in the valve itself . .. some models will leak a little after the glass is removed ( cause is air in the water system. ) if this just started then i think its the water valve .. mm hope this helps feed back pls .

A GE Profile Model, double door refrigerator with a water leak


If the leak is on the refrig water valve where the wall water line connects to , then use a 1/2" wrench and tighten the fitting on the water valve itself . If the leak is on the plastic tubing at the bottom of the refrig water valve , pull up on the small white ring while pushing down on the plastic tube to remove it from the valve . Cut off about 1 " of the tubing and reinsert it into the valve with pretty good pressure to be sure it is inserted completely .

Water leaking from underneath right side of refrigerator. Shut off water line to ice maker and still slowly leaking. Where is this coming from?


check the defrost drain line and catch tray under the fridge. you may just have moved the hose out of the tray or the tray may be full.

or it could just be your water valve has a slow leak. try turning off the water farther back on the supply line.

Icetube leaking water inside freezer and outside back of freezer


Your refrigerator needs a new water valve and possibly some new water tubing. You can find the correct part by going to sears.com and entering the refrigerator's model number in the parts search field. When you have the valve, shut off the water to the refrigerator. If you're not sure how to do that, just shut off water to the entire house. Be sure to run the kitchen sink after you shut the water off to relieve any presure and double check that the water is completely shut off.

Be sure to unplug the refrigerator before you start this project...water and electricity aren't friends! Using a 1/4" nut driver or socket, remove the cardboard or metal cover off the back of the refrigerator. Follow the water line to the water valve, unscrew the nut going to the valve, and remove the water line. There are 2 screws holding the water valve to the refrigerator cabinet; remove the screws and gently pull the valve out. Unplug the electrical connectors and remove the water lines. Take the new valve, connect the water lines and electrical plugs, screw the valve back into place, attach the water line and turn the water back to to test for leaks.

Since the valve has been leaking inside your freezer it would be a great idea to clean out your freezer and let the water tube and lines thaw. Find a place for your frozen food, unplug the unit and let it sit overnight with the doors open. Don't forget to remove the ice bin, as these make quite the mess when the ice melts. Once it's thawed, plug it back in, make sure the water is on and not leaking and enjoy!

Water continuously running to fridge, overflowing?


Hi, if the only way you could stop the water was to turn it off at the water source, you need to change the water inlet valve. Make sure you check the water fill line for any leaks before you change the valve.
If I canassist you in getting the vavle, please let me know.

Thanks

Water inlet ot ice maker leaks in to frezzer


Change the Water enter dump valve for the ice maker. It is leaking. It will not shut off & will cause this problem. It`s infrequently located in the rear of refrigerator ussualy where water line enters the electrically back of refrigerator. In essence the valve and electric head can be bought at any Appliance Parts store. It`s not a high cost part and be bought easily for it is mostly a standard part to buy. erroneously bring the model number and serial number and they can get the right one to replace it with.
