The freezer compartment has a drain hole behind the back wall inside the freezer compartment. The drain hole has probably rusted and has gotten larger. Carefully remove the icemaker and the screws from the back wall inside the freezer compartment. Lift the bottom of the back wall and look to see if the drain hole has gotten larger. You can make a small funnel from an aluminum can to fit over this area directing the water into the drain tube. It worked for me. good luck. Dave.

Water pooling and freezing on bottom of freezer compartment. Where is it coming from??


If you have an ice maker in there it could be that there is too much water entering the tray and the excess spills out. OR the drain that gets rid of melted ice during the auto defrost cycle could be clogged and the water stays in freezer, pools and refreezes.

Ice Maker bar won't come down


I have not worked on this model before but on the whirlpool they have a bar as well. you can turn off ice maker by pushing it up and it locks in place to stop ice production. if u want it to make ice u push it up slightly and it should move down. also check the ice maker tray to be sure u are getting water to the tray. if u get the bar to go down and no water comes in then check that u have water at the back of fridge.. if u have water there but not in the tray then you may have a bad water inlet valve on back of fridge.

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent between the freezer and fridge. the fan in the freezer blows air through it. there is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control.

How old is the fridge? Mine lieterally caught on fire at the start device last weekend. My fridge was manufactured in July 2001. Be careful, The fridge I have is model# ED5FHGXKQ00. I am currently requesting a recall be made by Whirlpool on this appliance.
Other than that it could just be that the ice maker line has frozen or the "arm" in the ice chest is stuck and can't raise itself to pump water directly into the ice trays. Either way be very careful. I hope this was helpful.

Beko ap930 no water geting to to ice tray


For me, this problem was because the tube was blocked with ice (the part of the tube inside the machine), which is why the tube popped off the back.
Try defrosting the freezer, or pushing hot water through the pipe with a syringe

FRIDGE LIKES TO RELIEVE ITSELF ON THE KITCHEN FLOOR


Sounds like the ice maker is overfilling.
You can adjust this by pulling the square front cover off and you will see a screw that shows ice size above it,just turn that screw towards the minus symbol.If not, post back and we'll go from there.

Please rate this solution when you can.
