Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

Water leak Hello, we have a Frigidaire FRT18G5AW4 that has recently started leaking water. We do not have an ice maker attatched to it and cannot figure out why it is leaking inside the refrigerator. The refridgerator was given to us about 3 yrs ago and was working with no problems. Now I am constantly cleaning up the water leaking from inside. I can see a drip coming from the back , behind where the ligh bulb goes attatched. but do not see where it comes from. Sometimes it leaks so much that the shelves are full of water and the floor is getting wet outside the door. I cannot find a drip pan anywhere and do not understand how if there is no water supply connected to it, it is leaking so much. Can you help me please? Other than the water leak, the refridgerator and freezer work well.

What's happening is when the fridge goes into defrost water goes thru the drain and is seeping into the crack by the damper which will run into the fridge section.  Why?  The drain doesn't come down far enough for all the water to go down the drain tube.  Frigidaire has a new drain that is longer and will prevent this problem.

Freezing Water line


Hello
The problem here is your water valve. It does not shut off all the way and allows very slow water flow through the water line. It is so small that it freezes in the supply tube causing a blockage. When your ice maker calls for water the pressure from the blockage pops the line out causing your leak.
You need to replace your water valve. Dual valve at the back of the fridge.."water inlet valve")

Frigidaire refridgerator leaking in icemaker


Try buying a new ice maker kit and replace it by doing it yourself. This would help you in saving money.

I recently bought a ice maker kit at lower price from Partsimple.com. they delivered it faster compare to others available in market and that too at low cost. Isn't that Good?
Try searching with compatible model no on Partsimple website.

Frigidaire Superba Ice Maker not stopping making ice


-Turn the ice maker off. If still leaking and decide not to use the ice maker to make any more ice then unplug the
water valve that let water run to the ice tray. Only the one for the ice. Otherwise you will not have any water at all.


Good luck

I have a Frigidaire professional side by side fridge model# LPHS2687KFO water is leaking before entering ice maker thus the ice maker is not working, water is leaking in freezer


The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze blocking the fill tube.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

Currently the water is leaking from the ice maker. there is ice build up in the control box its self, and its leaking from there. No sure how the water is getting in tot he control box itself so i'm...


You are right - it is filling up with too much water. If you remove the front panel of ice maker you will find a screw there that adjusts the length of time that the solenoid stays open to admit water. Turn it counter clockwise to reduce the time and amount of water entering the ice maker.

If you need new maker get them cheap on ebay. eBayeBay

Leaking water in side always


If the water leak is down the back or ctr its the drain line going to the underside of the fridge. If its down the side where the ice maker is its the ice make is not level if no ice maker your tray under the freezer may be leaking instead of draining.
