Question about Frigidaire FRS26KF5C Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Ice on the floor of a side by side

My ice maker broke down a few years ago, so I cut the water supply to the side by side. Now I got ice building up at the bottom of the freezer. It is cooling ok, both, the freezer and the refrigerator, but the motor seems to kick in more frequently. I unpluged it and it seems, the water is tropping down at the rear side of the freezer. Where could that water come from and what can I do to fix this problem? .

Hi there try defrosting your freezer for at least 24hrs with the door open as it sounds like your defrost drain is blocked with ice

Why is my GE (ZFSB23D SS) side by side refrigerator leaking at the back corner, near the rear wheel where the plastic water line goes in?


If the tubing is plastic it could have cracked when you moved the tubing to install the filter. If the tubing is OK then possinly the filter isn't all the way in or is leaking.

We had a water main break down the road a few days ago. Since then, my Series 600 ice machine hasn't produced ice very well. I tripped the breaker to try to reset it but no improvement. Suggestions,...


when the main broke ,sediment collected in pipes. were you asked to flush youre pipes before drinking the water? it is possible youre supply line to the ice maker is clogged with sediment. take off the supply line and make sure water is reaching the ice maker. if it is ,youre filter or inlet may be clogged. hope this is the fix.

I have a Jenn-Air refrigerator, Model JCD2389DE, and in the last two weeks we have noticed water puddling on the floor in front of the "freezer side" door. We thought maybe the water dispenser...


Mine did this a few years ago. I had to call service out to replace the system board. I guess it's a common problem. Something on the board fails and the defrost operation does not work properly, resulting in rapid meltdown of ice build-up and puddles on the floor.
