SOURCE: drain pan leaking?

there is a drip pan located underneath you ref but most likely your prob is a plugged drain line coming from the freezer. when you ref goes into automatic def the water doesnt run out into the drip pan but instead onto your floor..

you can clean the drain line by removing the rear cover in the freezer compartment and using hot water to thaw the drain below the evap coil.

You did remember to turn it back on? Mine has a handle that detects when the tray is full and you flip it up to turn it off and down to turn it on. Good Luck

The ice maker has stopped working. The red led light blinks when the freezer door is opened. Any thoughts?

SOURCE: Stand Alone ice maker leak

Your model number must be plumbed to a external drain.
You may have to install a condensation pump to do this.

Hi hhsawin ,

Have you already check to see any ice blockage in the fill spout tube, this is the hose that caries the water into the freezer section and to the icemaker. If the elbow & tube has a ice blockage, it is usually best to replace the fill valve and the shut off valve. You can try to thaw it using use a turkey baster to spray hot water into the tube.Also there is a solenoid that lets water into the ice cube maker, have a professional check it to make sure its working correctly. Please remember your safety in doing checking and repair.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Water leaking in refrigerator. Ice maker line turned off. No evidence of water in drain pan.


You have a plugged drain line. You will need to find out where it is plugged and open it up.Check in the freezer side, way in the back and on the bottom that"s where it is most likely.FHope this helped.

My undercounter Whirlpool ice maker is not putting water in the bin on a consistent basis. It causes the pump to run dry. I am trying to determine if I need to replace the computer board or the water...


when you first turn the machine on it will go through 2 fill cycles. turn the machine off, and drain the water reservoir. when you turn the machine back on the first fill cycle should fill the reservoir and over flow a little bit. If it does not overflow then you are not getting enough water (change the fill valve). If it does overflow on the first fill cycle, the the machine probably needs acid cleaned. the instructions on acid cleaning are usually on the door. I don't believe the computer board would be your problem here. Hope this helps, CLINT

ICEU220HA1 ice machine is half full of water - water fills up through drain hole in the tub when cleaning/purging pump


You have a restriction in the drain line beyond the ice machine and the water is backing up into the unit. You can try some Drain-o or snake the drain.

Water coming from the back of the refrigerator usually comes from either the ice maker water valve or line (if there is an ice maker), or from the defrost drain pan.

Here's what to do:
  • If the water is coming from the ice maker water valve, check to make sure the water tubes are attached properly and are fastened tightly.
  • If the water seems to be coming from any part of the valve itself, replace the valve.
  • If the water appears to be coming from the defrost drain pan, inspect for holes or cracks, and replace the pan if necessary.

Ice maker is working, but there is water in the bottom of bin


You will need to pull out what ice you have in the bin to get to the drain. Once you have done that, take a hose and force water thru the drain. You may have to snake the drain if is more than a build-up of ice. Once the drain is working, clean out the bin with ice machine cleaner and sanitizer. Restart the machine and make sure no water is dripping from the evaporator above. If there is, it needs to be cleaned.
