Frigidaire fridge leaks where ice maker is on

I have a Frigidaire stainless steel side by side door. When I switch on the ice maker, the water drips drop by drop at the (front) right side of the fridge. Friends suggested that there could be a leak in the pipe of the water connection. When, I took a look at the rear of the fridge I saw few inches of water on the base of the fridge. All the coils were immersed in the water. Please suggest what could be reason and is it fixable.

Your leaking problem gives two possibilities. The water control valve for the ice maker side is defective and while shut off the water will continue to slowly flow and leak into the freezer compartment. The other possibility id the condensate defrost drain is blocked and frozen over behind the rear panel of the freezer and at the bottom of th coils. I believe your defrost condensate drain has a blockage of ice and will need to be defrosted and clean the condensate line from the freezer to the condensate collection plate below your refrigerator. Most times the blockage begins slowly until the opening of the drain hole under the evaporator freezes itself shut. Below is a link to some solutions I have collected over a period of time. Also has a short movie that makes the repair look simpler. There are many reasons for this happening for example water leaking from a water supply line for the dispenser or ice maker, a crack in the defrost pan, water leaking inside and draining through the refrigerator cabinet, but most are caused by a defrost drain line blockage. Below is a link that may be helpful so try to take it all in and use the parts that most refer to your specific problem, Thanks Sea Breeze

How do I shut down the water flow to the ice maker


There are three ways.
1. Shut water off to the fridge via plumbing valve.
2. Lift arm on ice maker or use on/off switch depending on ice maker model.
3. Unplug ice maker wiring harness. It won't be able to call for water.
It depends on why you want the water off. A make and model of the fridge would help so I can give you a more specific answer.

Sounds like you have to have a leak in the water line somewhere. The water line goes to the top hinge in the door, so the water has to come from somewhere below that point or it would be collecting inside the door and leak out the front. A leak would prevent water from getting to the ice maker, or a leak at the valve could have this effect as well. Check the water valve that gets a call to send water to the ice maker.

I have a Frigidaire professional side by side fridge model# LPHS2687KFO water is leaking before entering ice maker thus the ice maker is not working, water is leaking in freezer


The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze blocking the fill tube.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

Water leaking from freezer door and ice maker not gettin water


Check the fill tube for the ice maker and make sure it is in the correct place. This sounds like the fill tube has been moved and is running water into the freezer instead of the ice maker. Let me know what you find. I am here to help you.
