I have had a similar problem with a commercial fridge that uses a fan to move the cold air around. The cooling elements get frozen and so no cold air is distributed by the fan.
It seems to happen when there is a weather change, maybe something to do with humidity?
Try turning it off for a day (put towels down) and then it should be fine.

I have a tfhw24 whistling ge refrigerator and the ice maker is not working. water is not entering, nevertheless the filter is connected to the appliance.


Since this is an older model it would not hurt to replace both the=> WR57X10051 Water Inlet Valve and the=> Ice Maker Assembly WR30X10093 To test feel the ice slots for any remaining cubes if no cubes of ice are there fill the ice maker to the near top and allow to freeze. If after the water is frozen the ice maker cycles and drops the ice in the ice bucket and does not refill with water change the water control valve. If the ice maker does nothing while there is ice remaining in the ice slots replace the Ice Maker

Hi, I own a Kenmore side-by-side fridge model #363-58572892. A few weeks ago, we returned from vacation and I turned our water back on (well) and expected to start getting ice in 6 hors but didn't. ...


Right...

Hello Richard Lawlor,

Still YESTERDAY here (California: 20 March @ 10pm)...

two BIG possibilities...

1). Ice-maker fill duration ... too long:
Overfills

Solution: reduce cube size (water fill time
(reference : owner's manual)

2). Water valve "calcified: failure to close...
Solution: replace valve (see "Sears" link below)
for WATER VALVE...
EASY Alternative... clean the valve with
coffee pot "descaler"
or white vinegar
(
rinse bountifully with water unless your taste croaked).

(not sure about the six hours... unless you had the ENTIRE refrigerator turned off... It can take a working FRIG up to 72 hours to reach operating STABILITY.

Also possible...

Okay (I lied)...
3). Serious air INTRUSION... will allow MASSIVE frost build-up
and allow the defrost pan (evaporative) to be OVERWHELMED.
(floods).
Solution... Find pizza box, or other reason the doors are not sealing... Plum, level & square EVERYTHING according to your ORIGINAL set-up instructions

But for the water on the floor...

You can use clean ... new typing / printer paper to find where the water is accumulating...

Hope this helps...

I come here about DAILY... Love refrigerators: Please feel free to comment me back for better ideas.

Started leaking water accumulated on bottom shelf in lower level. now top freezer takes 2 days to freeze ice, bottom freezer vent clogged.


The drain is clogged. When the drain clogs it can also clogs the airflow vents. Remove the back wall of the freezer to access the drain. Remove all the ice blocking the drain and the vents. Then use a trukey baser to force hot water down the drain until water flows freely. Then mix water with baken soda and pour it down the drain. http://www.appliance-repair-it.com/refrigerator-leaking.html

Getting water in the bottom of the ref is a top freezer model with ice maker in freezer.


Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.

We have started to notice a puddle of water on the floor on the refrigerator side of our Samsung RS257BARB side by side. Upon opening the refrigerator door, we see water on the bottom inside surface under...


Your refrigerator has a drain that leads to the exterior drain pan beneath the refrigerator. Occasionally this drain can become clogged resulting in standing water inside your refrigerator. A similar drain exists in the freezer, which when clogged results in ice build up on the floor of the freezer.

The drain is located either on the floor of the refrigerator, beneath the vegetable crisper, or in the wall behind a drain funnel.

Clear the drain by forcing a solution of water and bleach or water and baking soda into it with a basting syringe. If the solution will not flow through, slide a length of ¼ inch flexible tubing into the drain tube to push the clog through to the drain pan. Remove the tubing after clearing the clog.

NOTE-(This may be a leveling issue as well)

It is important for the refrigerator to be level. If it is not level, doors may not open or close properly and may not seal tightly. Also, drainage from the defrost cycle might be impaired as might the ice making cycle. The appliance was engineered based on it being installed in a level position. While there may be some tolerance for out-of-level installation, the appliance will operate at its best when properly leveled.

Place a level on top of the refrigerator near the front. Do not put it on the door because the door may not be aligned with the refrigerator case. Check that the refrigerator is level from side to side. Next turn the level to check that it is level from front to back.

If it is not level, adjust one or more of the adjustable leveling feet until it is level. The feet are bolts that can be turned to raise or lower the refrigerator. If they cannot be adjusted with your fingers, use a crescent wrench or pliers.

If you have an ice-maker, it should also be checked for level after first leveling the refrigerator. An ice maker that is out of level will spill water into the ice bin or into the freezer. It can be repositioned by loosening the mounting screws, adjusting it for level and then re tightening the screws.

Cold Freezer Hot refrigerator


I'm having the same problem with a Haier Model HTE18WAAWW.

Water is dripping into refrigerator section from the freezer section. Eventually, refrigerator section was not cooling adequately. Freezer was freezing, but there was eventually ice crystals inside similar to hoarfrost. (See Google images for hoarfrost if you're not sure what hoarfrost is.)

I turned off and unplugged unit for several hours while I removed the floor pan and internal back panel in the freezer. There was ice built up in the evaporator drain pan that was blocking the air flow of cold air from the evaporator into the refrigerator. I melted the ice with a hair drier plugged into a GFI outlet for safety.

I dried everything off. I could not find evidence of water going down the condensate drain tube below the evaporator to the condensate drain sitting on top of the compressor. I tried running a coat hanger down the drain line to no avail. I poured hot water down the condensate drain line to no avail. I put everything back together. Works fine as far as cooling and freezing, but water is still dripping into the refrigerator.

I think the defrosters are okay unless the heater strip below the evaporator is burned out. I base this on the fact that there is no condensate around the door gaskets even though the temperature in the house is hot and humid. I may have to Ohm that heater out. I'm thinking the drain line is clogged for the condensate drain. It may need longer defrosting.

If longer defrosting don't work, I'm thinking I need to rethink how to clean out the condensate drain line. Maybe low pressure compressed air???
