The ice maker is not working and the water dispenser is not working right. I've changed the filter,checked the water supply and reset ice maker and waited 24 hours. What's next?


First make sure you have water going to refrigerator Samsung water filter heads go bad and won't let water thru or it could be the fill valve it's right near the filter

Leaking water on floor


Remove contents from bottom of freezer. Turn ref/freezer off. Use the handle end of a screwdriver and carefully break up the ice build up from the bottom of the freezer. Find the condensate drain and remove ice build up. Find the condensate drain and remove ice or any kind of restriction from the drain line.
Or you can turn the refrigerator off for a day , mop up the water and blow out the condensate drain

Water in refridgerator


Have a look inside fridge compartment (especially the "roof", if it's a top-mount freezer) & see if you can see any ice build-up (look inside vents that allow cold air into fridge from freezer section. Also, if top-mount freezer, look inside the freezer compartment for ice build-up on "floor", inside vents, or on back wall. These symptoms, combined with water dripping from lots of the "roof" of fridge section (in a top-mount freezer model), can mean several different problems, so best to re-post with more info/symptoms included.
If there's no ice build-up (& the dividing area between fridge & freezer sections isn't particularly cold, which otherwise might indicate hidden ice build-up), it can be as simple as a plugged or obstructed drain tube, which is VERY COMMON. Easiest solution for this latter problem is to use a flexible plastic tube (think similar type as attached to aquarium air pumps), stuff it into drain hole, and blow on the other end. Sometimes you have to blow quite hard to clear an obstruction or complete blockage. If you can't clear the drain tube, it's likely a different problem. Again, a re-post with more info/symptoms will help narrow it down.

Frigidaire FRT21INLH top frezer refrige its not cooling i hear clicking in the back,friend who use to work on them said sounds like start relay but dont knw if i trust him if that is it were is it located...


HI, sounds to me like ice build up in freezer and the clicking sound is fan blade hitting ice.If you can remove back panel inside freezer and if you see ice, you will need to clear ice which is also blocking vent that goes to frig to cool it.then i would recommend wrapping a heavy guage copper wire around heating element and putting other end down drain tube to prevent the ice build up.

Replace ice maker still not making ice, it still dispenses water


Before suspecting the solenoid water valve, check the inlet tube, where the water enters the freezer. Sometimes this tube gets blocked with ice. From the back of the refrig, you can disconnect the water line where it goes into the back wall of the freezer and you should be able to blow air through it. (having the freezer door open while attempting this will prevent any back pressure build up) If you can not blow through it, it is plugged with ice. Melt the ice with a hair blower from the inside of the freezer. Ice blockage can result from water seepage past the water valve (generally requires replacement of the solenoid water valve) or the fill tube extention may be too long, resulting in the tube touching the end of the fill cup on the icemaker, which results in a build up of ice and blockage in the fill tube. (this only requires cutting the fill tube a bit shorter, so it does not touch the end of the icemaker's fill cup)


If you were able to blow through the tube, you have either a bad solenoid water valve, or the icemaker is not giving it power (generally only 6 seconds of power near the end of the cycle) which would mean a new icemaker, as replacement icemaker parts are not available.

Whirlpool Side by Side Freezer - Ice Build Up in Drain


After the drain thaws , ( I use about a 4 inch aluminum fence tie or if need longer , aluminum wire with no insulation ,) insert it into the drain hole as far as it will go with no force , and wrap the top end about 1 turn around the calrod defrost heater , This transfers heat to the hole so the ice will not freeze up the hole . Before doing this step , use a hose and blow into the drain to possible clear out any debris which could have accumulated in the drain trap .

Ice build up dripping from refrigerator down to freezer


The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.
Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help. Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing.

LG Bottom Freezer Frost Issue


It sounds like your defrost controller has gone bad. I have an LFC25760 and had ice build up in the bottom of the freezer such that water would start leaking onto the floor. The ice build up in the bottom of the freezer was due to a failing/bad defrost controller. Behind the back white wall in the freezer compartment exists the cooling fins along with a heating element underneath. Due to moisture that comes into the freezer from opening it, frost/ice builds up on the cooling fins. Thus the defrost controller turns on the heating element to melt the ice/frost off of the fins which then drips into a metal pan which channels the water to a drain hole which drops into the drip pan underneath the fridge next to the fan. The problem is that the defrost controller doesn't keep the heating element on long enough or the cooling cycle comes on too soon thereby freezing the water and plugging up the drain. I had my defrost controller replaced (just outside the warranty period!) and it worked for about 1-month and then same thing happened again. Instead of paying for another defrost controller that would probably not work 100% my serviceman used the old paper-clip trick. He took a paper clip, stretched it out and then wrapped one end around the heating element and placed the other end into the drain hole. Thus when the heating element comes on the paper clip keeps the drain hole warm/hot and prevents the water from freezing. It has been 9 months since this fix and I haven't had any ice pooling in bottom of the freezer.

Fridge ice accumulation inside and water dripping outside


Hi, Are you getting ice build up in the freezer side as well? There is a air shuttle between the fresh food side and the freezer side. thwater might be getting in the freshfood side from there. Look at the bottom rear panel in the freezer for ice build up. Ig=f there is ice, you will need to get to the drain from inside the freezer and check for blockage.
Please let me know if I can help you further.

Hidden Ice build-up inside plastic bottom cover of freezer


Generally, icing is the result of too much water vapor inside the unit, blockage of the circulation channels and too much packing in of the box.  The water vapor is generally caused by: uncapped items in the fridge, opening the door too often, humid conditions, bad door seals.  There is of course, there is a possibility that the defrost cycle on the unit is not working.  About once a day, depending on the brand, you should notice that the fans and compressor don't run and you should hear a bit of creaking, sloshing or other strange noises as the ice melts.  If this is not happening, your defrost timer or the coil it heats could be bad.
