More than likely the water is coming from the water produced from the defrost cycle. Ordinarily the water is piped through the back of the frig to a tray next to the compressor. The pipe may be out of place or crack in tray? Hope this helps

This _may_ be normal behaviour. When the freezer defrost element is heating, ice that melts off of the evaporator coils in the freezer will drain out of a small opening at the back of the freezer compartment and into a catch pan under the refrigerator. If that pan has other debris - cat hair, napkins, etc - the water may overflow the pan onto the floor.

Get behind the fridge, remove the bottom panel (at least that is how I can access it on my GE side-by-side), and see what you can see.

While you are back there, it is a good idea to clean the dust from the condenser coil, or use a shop vac to blow the dust from the coil.

Remember your electrical safety and unplug the fridge first, and be careful what you touch. I assume the compressor uses a large start capacitor that could still be energized even with the fridge unpluged.

SOURCE: water leak from under fridge when water dispenser is used

The water line is broken somewhere from the water dispencer all the way down to the water valve. I usually find that it is broken next to the water valve. Hint: Water valve is blue and located behind the fridge in the compressor department. Water line is 1/4inch clear tube that is probaly now a "yellowish" color. Easy to spot, easy to fix, especially if located next to water valve...

SOURCE: Water comes from under drawers on fridge side, leaks onto floor

If leak continued then you must have a faulty cut off valve. Check and tighten valve. Also, check the hose that runs underneath the fridge for cuts or holes.

SOURCE: GE Profile leaking onto floor

Clean the drain pan and drain line in the back of the freezer section behind the cover underneath the evaporator coil. (hint: use turkey baster with hot water) Make sure water drains when you pour it in. If it doesn't - also clean drain tube on the back of the unit behind the cover. When done - put the tube exactly where it was.
Good luck! :)

Leaking water in icemaker. water from icemaker leaks into freezer and freezes on freezer wall


If you are sure that it's coming from the ice maker I believe that you possibly have a leaking water control valve on the side for the ice maker on the rear of refrigerator near floor there is a dual water valve control. Many times when this happens the water will freeze in the fill tube that fills the ice maker in the rear of freezer. You can defrost the frozen water in the fill tube with a hair dryer but that will not stop the problem from coming back. When that happens water tends to at times go everywhere but the ice maker. You can test the water control valve several ways. By unplugging the side to the ice maker and if water continues to flow slowly to the ice maker then the dual water control valve will need replaced, Sea Breeze

common issue.....sounds like a drain clog in the freezer compartment above. remove the freezer rear panel and totally defrost the evaporator area, directly under the evap you see( under all taht ice) a small drain hole that has become frozen over, try defrosting with either a hair dryer( not a heat gun too much heat youl melt everything) or by pouring hot water donw the drain until you get a free flow of water down the tube. after its clear reassemble and you should be fine
