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.

Re: water leak

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.

Water leaking on freezer shelves no water in ice maker

Good Morning Friend,

I understand that the ice maker in your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRS26H5AS, is not making ice and is leaking water onto your freezer shelves. Please make sure that your freezer is cold enough. Your freezer should be set at a temperature of 0 degrees F. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Frigidaire refrigerator with ice maker leaks water

It sounds like your ice maker is leaking.
If you are able, try opening up the ice maker for a visual inspection.
just remember to unplug first.
Apparently there is a leak somewhere.
Sometimes ice makers will over flow if the float gets stuck or a connection has come loose.
If you cannot work on it yourself, then I suggest looking up a service technician on the Fixya website.

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 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.

Water leaking from under Frigidaire fridge

Hello - There are many reason for this issue to occur, for example the refrigerator could have a crack in the defrost pan, a defrost drain line blockage, a leak from the water supply line for the dispenser or ice maker, but most cases water leaking inside and draining through the refrigerator cabinet. Try confirming that the vales are tightened. If the connection is still leaking, turn of the water supply line to the water valve and take the connection apart. You can try using Teflon tape when retightening the connection to ensure a good seal. If these suggestions prove to be ineffective contact a professional to move forward accurately.

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.

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.
