SOURCE: Water leaking out of the tank

Hi,

i think you have to replace the gasket where the water tank fits, it´s very tight there, you have to take off the bottom from the machine then you will see two screw, loosen this.

Now can you put down your hand in the hole and take of the plastic above the gasket.

Hope this will help you.

Water is leaking on the freezer side and we must put a towel in the bottom and change it twice a week.


Hopefully you won't. I am not a "Repairman" so I'm just going off of what I've seen in my experience for refrigerators that put a puddle on the floor.

Usually a puddle is created when the refrigerator defrosts. All that ice in the freezer has to go somewhere when it defrosts, so some models (Not sure if they all still do this?) have a tray that you place in the bottom of the freezer that is there to catch this defrost water.

These trays can get dislodged from the drain that they are supposed to be sitting under to catch the water, or they fill up with water and over flow....then you see water on the floor.

So find out if your model has a tray to catch the water. At the bottom of the refrigerator see if you can remove the little grill (if your refrigerator as one of these?). If it does, you can look under the refrigerator and hopefully you'll see a usually white tray in there that as I mentioned is either displaced and not catching the water, or is full. Move it back to where it should be (there is usually a slot for the tray to slide into.) or empty/clean it out and put it back.

On a new model they may not have a tray like this, but if you think about it...where else is water going to come from out of a refrigerator. Having said that....you just reminded me...do you have a cold water connection to your refrigerator for cold water or ice making? Maybe that's loose or there is some other leak in that water/ice system?

But as I was going to say...refrigerators don't run on water so it's coming from one of those sources..an overfilled defrost tray, or a leak in your water/ice system...if you have one of those?

COVER ON DOOR DISPENSER IS LEAKING AT THE BOTTOM. WHAT COULD CAUSE THIS AND DOES THE COVER POP OFF?


The cover does come off, with some difficulty, but that will not help you. The leaking is caused by water build up in the collection tray, which when filled can leak out the front corners and down behind the outer frame. Use a bit of clear silicone to seal the front corners, and try to keep the drip catching recess cleaned out more often so it is not always full of water.

Water leaking


the plastic tray is either cracked or the busing is worn out. ice is building up in the catching tray and is one large ice cube?

Whirlpool refridgerator is leaking water on the freezer side (side by side refridgerator) onto the floor. The ice machine was overflowing with ice and has frozen ice in the ice maker that won't budge. We...


WAS IT LEAKING FROM INSIDE THE FREEZER OR FROM BOTTOM OF FRIDGE? ONCE IN A WHILE YOU NEED TO TAKE OUT THE ICE BIN AND DUMP ICE OUT AND CLEAN IT. HOW CAN THE ICE MACHINE OVERFLOW WITH ICE WHEN THE ICE IN THE TRAY WON'T BUDGE? NEED CLARIFICATION. SOUNDS LIKE YOU EITHER HAVE A BAD ICE MAKER MODULE OR THE SOLENOID FOR THE ICE ON THE WATER VALVE IS BAD.

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.

Water leaking at bottom of freezer side


that is not a leakage it might be sweating of the chilled line. and to collect this water there will be a tray fixed below the freeser or refrigerator exactly on the condensor so check this tray is in its place.

I have a General Humidifier Model 1042-L that is leaking water out of the bottom pan. How do I fix this?


Check the bottom of the drain tube (tube connected to the bottom center of the bottom tray). Does water freely flow out the bottom end of the tube when the humdifier water feed is on?

If there is no flow from the tube and water is leaking from the bottom tray when the humidifier water feed is on then the tube or bottom tray may be clogged with hardwater minerals or other material.

Also, if the humidifier has not been used in a long while it's possible a spider has take up residence by spinning a web in the bottom tray or tube. Tell the spider to find a new home.

Another possible reason is the tray is cracked. You may order the tray from multiple sources on the web. Simply shop for model and price.

And lastly, is the unit installed properly, parallel to the ground? If tilted, water flowing through the unit may catch the sides and flow out where it should not.

Water leaking into machine


This happens when the boiler develops a leak, usually due to scale buildup. Order a new boiler and o-rings and replace.

Water leaking into machine


it's possible, like mine with the same problem, that one or more of the plastic feet under the water tank has broken, then making the tank move and upsetting the valve underneath. My one always leaks clean water, never dirty and I have a broken foot.
