SOURCE: Fridge Leaking water from front right hand corner

Most likely you're correct, the defrost cycle produces water that is supposed to be captured in a holding tray, pan, etc. If the pan is cracked it would leak out or if the drip tube (pipe) is not in place it would miss the pan. It may be easier to remove the contents of the small frige and tip it over some to see what you can down there. I assume this small unit doesn't have any water souce to it (no ice maker or water). Check the tubing for damage and see if you can find the holding pan to inspect for crackes, etc.

SOURCE: Water leaking from left side ice/water dispenser

If you describe a constant flow of water from the ice maker then the solenoid valve is either leaking by when it's upposed to be off or the motor module is stuck in the "fill" position. If it was stuck in fill you would be getting a LOT of water all the time so if you only have a trickle then the solenoid valve may be letting water leak by it. The diagram here shows the parts for a better idea of what you may need to look at (and where it's at). http://www.partselect.com/Schematics/Frigidaire/SZGBPCQH.gif

SOURCE: Water leak @ bottom front left with water turned off

this quite simple, inside the freezer compartment lower half there is a removable inspection cover, or what you may call the rear interior wall. remove this cover/wall and underneath the cooling coils is a drain hole for the defrosted water to escape to the pan located under the refrig. This hole is obviously blocked with some object, possibly just ice. As it is blocked the defrosted ice in the form of water cant exit the normal way so it is over flowing onto the freezer floor. everytime the defost element comes on more water will leak. solution is to clear the drain hose possible with hair dryer , or gently running a firm but flexible plastic tube through the drain tube to push any blockage on through. This has to be done very slowly and carefully.

SOURCE: water leaking from the bottom

Self-defrosting refrigerators dispose of the water generated during the defrost cycle, usually via a tube or channel that directs the water to a pan at the bottom of the refrigerator. From the pan, the water normally evaporates.

If the tube or channel is clogged or obstructed, the water backs up and leaks into the inside of the refrigerator compartment. Then the water builds up at the bottom, inside of the refrigerator. When the water has built up for a time it may spill out of the front of the door opening. To fix this problem, clear the drain tube or channel and allow the defrost water to flow down to the drain pan.

Water is leaking on floor from left hand front corner (freezer side) I noticed it does it on the right hand corner at times also


On my fridge like this one, on the freezer side, down at the bottom (below the doors, where the vents are, there's a turn knob there. If you turn it counter clockwise, it'll unscrew filter. It's white and about 2" round and 10" long. It's the filter that goes to the water supply and ice maker. Mine had stopped up, I just pulled it out, went to home depot and got another just like it and re-plugged it in.. No more leaks for me!

Drinking water works fine . not the ice maker. water is leaking out of one end toward front of side by side and makes a huge block of ice where the ice cubes go .What is problem.?


In back of the refrigerator at the bottom you will find a water supply line. This is conected to a selinoid valve it splits the water in two directions one for the ice maker one for water to the door. The side that controls water flow to the icemaker is not closing all of the way. This may be caused by deposits in the valve or a week valve spring. Replacment cost is about $20 if you change it yourself. About $90 if you call a service tech. If your good with your hands replacment is simple 2 screws or bolts hold it to the unit the fittings are compression type. Remember to unplug the unit and turn off the water supply and have rag or towel to catch the water left in the line.

Your water pressure may be a liitle too high for the machine to handle. Try turning the water valves for the hot and cold water down a bit to reduce the pressure and try it again.

Water coming from bottom of machine


If this only happens when the machine is filling the hose leading to the top of the tub may be leaking. Before it fills this hose is disconnected from the water supply by a closed solenoid valve. There are two valves which feed into a common hose that comes up to the top of the tub where the water runs into the tub. The leak does not happen after the tub fills because all the water leaks out and no new water runs in. These hoses are usually very small and very inexpensive and held on with clamps. They can usually be replaced by removing a small panel near the hose attachment location.
