Question about Frigidaire 26.0 cu. ft. Side-By-Side Refrigerator with PureSource 2 Water Filtration
I think it leaks when the water comes on to feed the icemaker. The supply tube in the freezer that comes out of the back and into the icemaker seemed frozen so I thawed it out. I turned the water back on and waited. Sure enough it is still leaking! Water comes out in short burst with the sound of a motor triggering it. I took off the back panel and see a small (1/2 inch diameter?) PVC type hard tube that is not attached to anything. I don't see or feel anything that had fallen off. I assume that it is some sort of overflow outlet.It was wet around this but not sure if it is coming from here or from somewhere else. HELP!
Hi: Well, you have an inexpensive fix ahead. Your defrost drain is clogged. Look at the bottom of your freezer, the back wall. At the very bottom you will see a shallow funnel with a hole in the center. Usually a few slits in the metal above it for venting. This hole is not refrigerated and can also swallow a frozen pea or other morsel. Your defrost mechanism is also above it and uses it to drain the defrosted ice from the coils. Which it is not happening. Unplug and warm the freezer (put your food in a cooler) and you could pour some warm water and clorox bleach down the hole at the bottom. If it is just mold the clorox will eat it up. If its worse get a pipe cleaner (as in tobacco pipe) and work it in the hole. You have a cheap fix. Hope this helps, Jeff
