There has been water leaking on the floor behind the fridge for the last two days. The water dispenser works fine, the ice maker as well. What would be the source of the water leakage?

It sounds like the fridge water supply line is leaking. Pull the fridge out and have a look. May just need tightening.

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.

Refrigerator leaks


If it a frost free fridge it should self defrost every 6 to 8 hours all by its self. If you see ice or frost buildup in side the freezer usually back wall harder to notice if the cooling fins are just under the freezer floor but above the fridge ceiling or better picture it as the fridges taint. Sounds like the fridge is having defrost problems and if it every once in awhile does go into defrost or you do it, all that water flows down a hose and out the back around the compressor. Heat from the compressor or other gadgets evaporate the water. If it only defrost a few times a year it is going to overflow the catch basin. Easy to check some times catch basin or drain hose move check back bottom or remove front cover look if bottom catch basin. Main fault is defrost timer stuck in run, location all over in or out, defrost element around cooling fins,defrost thermostat on cooling fins,wiring to / from / joining the last two.

Hotpoint. Water is leaking from behind light bulb


The drain hose in the back of your freezer is frozen shut. The water you see is coming from the defrost cycle. Turn off the refrigerator. Remove the floor from your freezer and remove/thaw all of the ice. Locate the drain in the back of the freezer. It may be behind the back panel. Thaw the drain until water flows freely through it. Reassemble the freezer, and you are back in business.

older fridges drained water into a pan with the compressor in it, thus cooling the compressor and evaporating the water, this is located at the bottom back of the fridge. if this fridge has a water and/or ice dispensor, the water could be leaking from many a place.

Water accumuluation under the fridge


at the back there should be a drip tray if this is full it will leak onto the floor it could be this, it could also be the drain in the fridge is blocked on the back there should be a self made into the back with a hole in it this is to go to the vapure, the part i was on about before, the tank is on top of the pump and its hot so turns the water in to vapour, usually there is not a lot of water but if the pipe becomes blocked it stores the water in the pipe and then lets it go in one full step over flowing the container. to clean the pipe out you can use a flex line or a net curtain rod, push it down and up the hole a few times the blockage will fool to the bottom or come out on the flex.
