Question about Electrolux Refrigerators
It was fine until I replace the water filter now I have a water leak coming from the ice maker so I have to turn it of help
I appreciate your inquiry, Deo Huggins!
I understand that your icemaker is leaking water inside of your Electrolux refrigerator. It sounds like a possible crack within your water filter and that is causing water to build up into your icemaker or it could be an issue with your water valve. I would suggest removing your water filter ad making sure there is no visible damage to the outside of it. If you do not see any damage I would suggest having a professional technician come out and properly diagnosis your refrigerator. Best of luck! -Matt

this is a hard one to diag in person, let alone via email. you know your not getting water to the ice maker, problem is finding out why, ther is (or should be) a tech sheet behind the kickplate of this unit with a little trouble shooter and diag procedure for the ice maker. folded little blue/and or brown paper.
1. is the water line leading from the valve to the ice maker fill clogged/frozen??? pulll the machine out and youll see the line leadding to the top corner of freezer, disconnect that line and try to blow though to the insde of freezer, should blow withno resistance. if so your good if not youll need to thaw that line
2. is the red light blinking on the inside of door. its a sensor for the ice maker if its faulty you wont get ice either.With the flapper on rt wall of freezer depressed the light should remain on solid, if continues to blink a pattern, 1 and 1 quick blinks, 1 and them 2 quick blinks, youll need to replce the electronics
3. is the water valve itself just not sending water to the ice maker. its a dual vavle 1/2 does water and the other half feeds the ice maker . generallly youll hear the valve being energized, just no water coming through
4. ice maker itself can be damaged and not calling for water at all.a pretty common issue with these electonic control ice makers is the center gear actually over torques itself and winds up snapping itself(at least the tabs that hold ino place snap anyway). gaining acess to the face of the ice maker will tell this.
while looking at the exposed from\nt of ice maker you should see the center gear adn the 2 tabs holding the gear on as well. ther shoud be a SMALL but definite space betwwen the 2 tabs in middle of center gear, as if it were pressed on and the tabs spread back open to hold onto the gear. if 1 of the tabs is cracked or the gear isnot mounted correctly because of the tabs, you best bet is to replace the ice maker assy

check the water valve on the back of the ref. it sends water to the ice maker and water in the door one can work and the other one not

you have a clogged drain, it is either clogged with ice or some kind of debris, thaw the freezer out and push a length of weed trimmer line down the drain. The drain is accessible by removing the back wall of the inside of the freezer. If there is no clog then the drain may be freezing up, if that is the case, take a piece of 14 gauge romex wire and loop it several times around the heating element at the bottom of the evaporator and push a few inches of it into the drain, this will get hot and transfer heat when it goes into a defrost cycle which is where the water is coming from in the first place
