Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

Jenn Air side-by-side refrig-freezer. When the water is hooked up it leaks substantially from the Ice Maker. I'm attempting to remove the module (from which the water flows) and it's unclear just how to detach the module. What is the best approach to fixing this unit?

Make sure the fill cup does not have any ice in it. The little cup that the tube fills when it calls for water. Besides that I would recommend changing the icemaker module on the front of the icemaker. It is held on with 3 screws.

Ice builds up on floor of freezer apparently some leaking as my lamented floor is showing some damage. i have cut off water supply to icemaker and water tap thinking this was problem.


most likely you have a plugged and frozen defrost drain. check behind the bottom basket of your freezer section to confirm this you will find alot of ice build up. to repair you self:
  • unplug refrig.
  • unload freezer section
  • remove rear access cover (on jenn-air's there are 2 screws about mid way up they are painted white and arent very obvious).
  • clear all ice
  • flush drain hole with warm water. ( i use a turkey baster filled with hot water to get best results)
  • reassemble unit
  • reapply power
this should stop your water leak. thanks Peyton

LOOK ON THE BOTTOM OF THE FREEZER. IS IT FULL OF ICE? IF SO YOU HAVE A DEFROST DRAIN PROBLEM. THE BEST WAY TO REMEDY THIS IS UNPLUG IT OVERNIGHT AND REMOVE THE BACK FREEZER PANEL YOU WILL SEE A HOLE THAT LEADS TO THE DRAIN PAN. YOU NEED TO CLEAR THIS, COMPRESSED AIR WORKS BEST.

Whirlpool Refrigerator water leak through Ice dispenser


You need to remove the ice maker and open the front carefully. It has small micro switches inside it and it sounds like one that opens the water control valve is stuck in the on position. Be careful not to loose the arm spring and how that goes back together as you take it apart. Sea Breeze

HELP WITH WATER LEAK??


If you have turned the water off and it is still leaking out of the freezer side you may have a plugged drain. the drain is there as part of the defrost system to keep modern refrigerators frost free. When the machine goes into defrost and the heater in the freezer comes on it drains out the drain to a pan underneath and the heat from the compressor and the condenser fan underneath the unit evaporate it and the whole process starts all over again. every once in a while something will plug the drain on the bottom of the inside of the freezer side and when the heater kicks on to defrost the refrig the water cant go anywhere but to the bottom of the freezer and seeps out the front at the bottom of the door between the gasket and the refrig. check the drain...because if you have turned off the water and it is still showing up this could very well be your problem. Take the bottom shelves out of the freezer and look to the back and bottom at the middle sometimes you can see the drain and sometimes you have to remove the thin metal panel covering the back bottom half of the freezer,....inspect the drain hole and remove any obstructions or ice build up. if need be pour hot water into the drain to melt any ice that could be causing the obstruction to the drain. and the hot water should drain out of the frige.Write me back and let me know if I can help you further....

Water leaking from bottom of unit


For original poster: Check all milky white colored (polyethelne) plastic water lines. These lines tend to get brittle and can crack over a period of time. They extend from the water valve to the ice maker, and from the water valve to the inside of the refrig to a "radiator" so the water can chill, before it runs back out the refrig, past the left side of the refrig behind the bottom grill, through a coupler, and up through the bottom hinge of the freezer door. I'd also advise putting in a separate shut off for the water supply to the refrig so you can have water to the rest of your house when you have a problem with the refrig.

For next user with similar problem: you can check the above, but it may be that the defrost drain is plugged. (on a S x S unit, it is located at the bottom of the freezer compartment, behind the back wall.) If you have a layer of ice on the floor of the freezer, that's a dead give away of a blocked defrost drain tube, Use a turkey baster with hot (not boiling) water to flush it out.

Icemaker


You might have a frozen line. Also and this seems more important to you its prob to cold, Trust me to cold of a refrig will cause hollow ice cubes first leading to a frozen line. Clean your coils, if you have another refrig empty out into that, unplug it leave doors open a couple days. If you can get to water line use a hair dryer from a distance defrost line, turn down freezer half knotch 1 full one at maximum. should fix issues, especially if filter already changed. If this all check prob a clogged line, not just frozen.

Jenn Air JCD2389GTW Refrigerator problem


change the adaptive defrost board located in the upper right corner of refrig under the panel. remove panel by pulling on panel towards you from the finger holes in the rear. remove two 1/4 inch screws and two phillips screws. defrost manually with hair dryer behind panel in freezer.
