Water leakage (Magic Chef RC24HA-3AI)

I have water leaking out the bottom all over the floor & into the bottom of the freezer of my 2 year old Frigidaire side by side. model # FRS6HR4HW2 I have a Magic Chef RC24HA-3AI fridge (s/n37136398) that is leaking water from the freezer door. It's 20 years old and has been leaking to some extent for a couple of years. The leakage has finally gotten bad enough that I have to do something about it. I've looked at the water line coming in from underneath the fridge, and it appears to be ok. There is no obvious leakage into the water/ice dispenser area, although the tray in the bottom of the dispenser does seem to be collecting water. I assume that my problem is old/worn out plumbing, most likely in the door. If so, how do I get to the valve assembly to inspect it? If I need to take the door apart, how do I do it? I've pulled the bezel off of the front and removed the screws, but don't know how to go any further. Thanks, Bruce

SOURCE: fridge freezing

Low freon charge will cause the compressor to run continuously, as it never reaches the set temperature. This will also cause excessive ice buildup as well. I am assuming this little fridge doesn't have an automatic defrost. If it does look at that next. You didn't say, but does it reach proper temperature? Go to the back where the compressor is. Feel the lines coming out of the compressor. the low pressure, or larger one, it may have insulation around it, should be cold. If you cant tell (sometimes these small compressors they look the same size) its the line leading inside the freezer. Feel about 1 foot away from the compressor, if possible. Next feel the high or small pipe, this one is going to the outside coil. This should be very warm, but not cool and not real hot. This goes for the compressor too. A 134A system sometimes is very hot when low on freon.

Magic chef model number CSB2323AR seems to be a defrost problem. Water accumulates at bottom of freezer then ices up. Is there a drain pan on this model?


The water is from the melted frost of the defrost cycle. The drain at the bottom of the back wall of the freezer is blocked so instead of the water draining into the pan where it will evaperate,it's pooling on the freezer floor and freezing, in many case when the floor indent is full the water will leak onto the floor.By pulling the refrigerator out from the wall,there will be a tube behind the service panel on the lower right side when looking at it from the rear,that tube can be removed and cleared,then clear the nozzle it connects to inside the freezer.

I hope this helps you to stop the leak,
Gene

Have a magic chef, top freezer, one size bigger than dorm size. freezer doesn't freeze and continually produces water that freezes all over bottom of freezer. what to do?


There are three chances for not getting freeze. Defrost activate quickly, due to: 1. Thermostat malfunction- Replace it. Thermostat setting. - Must be -5 degree or less than that. 2. Defrost timer for malfunction. If so, replace it. 3. Freezer heater malfunction.- Replace it.3. System chocked or short of gas. Check with run amps.
Solution: If system chocked, release all gas and replace filter drier. Flush out the system, vacuum and recharge gas. If short of gas, leak test and arrest it. Vacuum and do gas charging. Thanks.

Ice tray not filling completly with water.


Hi Mark, Unfortunately the problem is in your mind. Delusional thought processeses are a common manifestation of compulsive **** and liars. My advice is to get a new fridge and listen to a Bee Gees record backwards. Love Miranda
