Water line to back of fridge is leaking

I pulled fridge out and found adapter on the back top right corner had come out and was leaking water. This is secured only with an adhesive which came unglued. I put it back in place and when water flowed it poured out the side. I went to home depot and they do not sell this part. I also found the same model they had for sale, but they had a metal bracket screwed in place where mine doesnt. Where can I find what I need to stop the leak?

SOURCE: Fridge Leaking water from front right hand corner

Most likely you're correct, the defrost cycle produces water that is supposed to be captured in a holding tray, pan, etc. If the pan is cracked it would leak out or if the drip tube (pipe) is not in place it would miss the pan. It may be easier to remove the contents of the small frige and tip it over some to see what you can down there. I assume this small unit doesn't have any water souce to it (no ice maker or water). Check the tubing for damage and see if you can find the holding pan to inspect for crackes, etc.

SOURCE: amana side by side ice dispenser leaking water

we have same problem. The line is not the standard 1/4" but 5/16". Get 5/16" compression coupling with insert for line. Go to small hardware store. Home Depot is of no help. Good luck, I'm trashing mine and getting a unit with only an ice maker, no water in door.

SOURCE: water leaking from door

your drain is clogged. if ice isbuilt up in the freezeer floor. when the freezer defrosts and the drain is clogged it has no where else to go other than ouot the front. pull everything out of the freezer and check twards the rear at the bottom. remove as much ice as possibile let set unplugged and door open for 3 hours. then take a cup of boiling water and pour it back there. if it dont drain repeat that process with the water-have a towel ready because if the water stays back there long enough it will get cold. you need to keep the water HOT. ice could be built up in the drain. hope this helps

Why is my GE (ZFSB23D SS) side by side refrigerator leaking at the back corner, near the rear wheel where the plastic water line goes in?


If the tubing is plastic it could have cracked when you moved the tubing to install the filter. If the tubing is OK then possinly the filter isn't all the way in or is leaking.

Have whirlpool gold refrigerator with freezer on top. Water leaking continuously out bottom on floor. I turned water valve behind to off. All leaking stopped. Can someone tell me where to look for the...


Hi,

One big question before you go hunting. Before you turn off the water, was the water running all the time? Meaning if the water had a continuos flow the leak is before the fridge. If the leak is erratic then its on the valve side to fridge.
Follow the water source in the fridge, supply line to water valve (bottom right behind the fridge), from there it should run straight up the back into the freezer. So, if the water is coming from the valve, replace it, if from the water line - replace it. If the water line came off or out of the freezer reconnect and check for a frozen fill tube.
I hope this information helps.

Water leak on floor under refrigerator


The line going into the dispenser is a 5/16 line. You'll have to remove the front of the dispenser on the door to get access to the line to unclip it. Once you have that done you can pull the line out from the bottom. At this point there are a variety of different unions, compression fittings, etc. to splice the line. After that you just feed the line back through the bottom of the door, clip it back in place, put the dispenser back together and your done.

How do I change the water filter


Removing and replacing a water filter - upper right hand corner location

Filters situated in the upper right hand corner of the refrigerator compartment of Maytag-built side-by-side refrigerators are relatively simple to replace. Follow these steps:
  • These eight inch long filters are housed in their own compartment. The base of the compartment can be released by pushing in on the release clip found at the end of the housing unit. Allow the base of the housing compartment to hang down while you remove and replace your filter.


  • Twist the spent filter to the left (counter-clockwise) and gently pull on it to remove it. There is an automatic water shut off to keep leaks and spills to a minimum.


  • Remove the new filter from its packaging. Remove the plastic wrap, and peel off the aluminum topping. Insert the new filter into the housing unit. Twist the filter to the right (clockwise) until it clicks into place. Replace the base of the filter housing by cliping it back in place.


  • Condition the filter by dispensing several glasses of water through your refrigerator. This ensures that all fine carbon particles have been removed.


  • Check the filter and the inside of the refrigerator for leaks. If you find a leak, remove and install the filter again.


  • Finally, reset the 'change filter' indicator light, if your refrigerator has one, at the front of your refrigerator. The procedure for resetting the change filter indicator light can vary from fridge to fridge. Typically, the indicator light can be reset by holding down on the 'lock' button and the 'water' button simultaneously for three seconds. Sometimes, it is the 'lock' and the 'light' button you need to press down on simultaneously for three seconds in order to reset the filter indicator light.


Removing and replacing a water filter - center ceiling location

Filters situated in the center ceiling of the refrigerator compartment of Maytag-built side-by-side refrigerators are relatively simple to replace. Follow these steps:
  • Turn the filter a quarter turn to the left, in a counter-clockwise motion. The 'unlocked' symbol on the filter will be lined up with the indicator line that is molded into the refrigerator just above the filter. Allow the ears of the cartridge to disengage from the filter holder.


  • Gently pull down on the filter, being careful to not spill any water still in the filter. Discard the used filter.


  • Remove the new filter from its packaging. Remove and discard the red plastic cap found on the top of the new filter.


  • Apply the appropriate month sticker to the filter to remind your self to remove and replace the filter in six months' time.


  • Insert the new filter into the filter opening. Line the 'unlock' symbol on the filter up with the indicator line that is molded into the refrigerator above the filter. Turn the filter a quarter turn to the right, in a clockwise motion. You will be able to feel the filter stop when it is all the way in, and the 'locked' symbol on the filter will now be lined up with the indicator line above the filter.


  • Close the refrigerator door and dispense several glasses of water through the water dispenser in the door in order to purge the new filter of any impurities. Open the refrigerator door again and check for leaks. If you find a leak, remove and replace the new filter again.


  • Finally, reset the 'change filter' indicator light, if your refrigerator has one, at the front of your refrigerator. The procedure for resetting the change filter indicator light can vary from fridge to fridge. Typically, the indicator light can be reset by holding down on the 'lock' button and the 'water' button simultaneously for three seconds. Sometimes, it is the 'lock' and the 'light' button you need to press down on simultaneously for three seconds in order to reset the filter indicator light.

Refrigerator is leaking/dripping clear water, but the ice maker lines have no leaks and it appears to be coming for the middle of bottom of the box somewhere.


You may have a leak from the water supply line that is attached to the fridge from the house hold line near the bottom right corner of the fridge.

Ice maker has stopped making ice


Check the ice maker to see if there are ice cubes in the ice maker. If so, there is a problem with the ice maker heater and / or motor. You may be able to rebuild the ice maker by replacing defective parts, but it might be easier to replace it as a whole unit instead. If there is no ice present, it is likely a problem with the ice maker water lines / solenoid.

There are usually two solenoid valves and tubing systems for these types of fridges. One actuates on demand for water whenever requested, and the other operates automatically to make ice cubes until the ice cube reservoir is full.

Carefully push/pull the fridge away from the wall.

Unplug the fridge from the outlet.

Shut off the water supply to the fridge.

Remove access cover (usually the on the bottom) from the back of the fridge. Follow the tube that comes from the top of the fridge (for the ice maker) down to the bottom of the fridge.

Inspect visually for sources of the leak on tubing and related parts. Carefully check by hand for leaks in areas not readily visible - including the back sides of all the tubing, too. There may be sharp edges that can cut if not paying attention. If a leak is found where the tubing connects to other parts, you may be able to simply remove the tube and cut it back an inch or so if there is enough slack.

It may require that some special fittings and parts be obtained to reconnect and some compression type parts are designed for single use. If this is the case, gather the parts and bring them to a local hardware store for assistance obtaining replacements.

If a solenoid valve is found to be the culprit, due to a crack, etc. a trip to an appliance parts store will be required - unless able to purchase online. Part prices can vary widely , depending on the source.

Once replacement parts have been secured, reconnect after disconnecting power & water supply lines. When satisfied with the installation, reconnect power and water lines and test.

Carefully slide the fridge back into position - taking care to not crush the power or water lines.

My Kenmore coldspot refrigerator is not producing ice. The water works fine, but no ice.


Hi,

I'd start by making sure the ice maker is not simply "shut off". no offense, it is a common occurrence. the unit can be shut off several ways depending on the model you have. some ice makers have a switch right on the ice maker module/head. some have a switch at the side wall of the freezer, if it has an ice bucket on the door, and most if not all ice makers have a shut off arm to automatically shut it down when it's harvested a full bucket of ice, which can accidentally be pushed up into the off position by simply reaching in to grab ice or something other. if all that has been ruled out, ok.

next, start by pulling the unit away from the wall, or whatever the case may be in your environment, as long as you have access to the rear of the unit. (be careful of the water supply line) I should add just because you are getting water from the dispenser on the door does not necessarily mean anything about the ice maker.

**FIRST; before going any further, unplug the unit from the wall**.

now that the unit has no power. shut off the water to the unit. examine the water lines traveling along the back of the fridge so you're familiar with the routing of the lines.(draw a picture/take a photo if you think it's helpful) if this is a bottom mount, you'll see the water line for the ice maker at the lower right hand corner, if it's a top mount, it will be located towards the top right corner, (provided you're facing the back). identify where the line enters what they call the "injector" or "supply tube". you'll notice the line being held in place by a small clamp of some kind. remove this clamp. once the clamp is removed, gently pull the plastic line out of the tube. if you've got the line out of the tube, tape it to the back of the fridge out of you're way, careful not to kink it or lay it on the floor, it could be damaged or water may leak onto the floor. now you have to pull that injector tube out of the back wall. it may be pressed in there (should be) fairly snug, so you'll have to apply steady force while twisting it back and forth, it should pull out and is likely several inches long. once you have that out, is it iced up ? you'll likely have to replace the inlet valve for the ice water supply. some units have a water/ice valve all together with 2 valves on it, some have separate valves for water and ice. you'll need to determine which one by looking or even better, cross reference with the model and serial numbers at an on-line parts supplier or local parts depot.

hope that helps,

good luck
