Fridge is freezing over and no water or ice.

I would check the main water supply coming into the fridge first. If there is water there then make your way into the fridge. Try to confirm the supply in the fridge by looking at the line into the fridge. If there is water there then you need to check the door switches to see if they are supplying power to the water solonoid. But if the fridge is not making ice also I would look at the main control to be the problem. But if the freezer is running too cold then the frost level in the insulation could reach the water lines and freeze them. But if the freezer is running too cold then I would again look at the main control as being faulty. No real way to test the control, unfortunately you just get to replace it. Hope this helps

I have a a whirlpool wrn42nwf6 fridge, and it is building water up on the inside ... im thinking blocked breather hole , but cant find it ..could you please give me any advice

Same issue with mine.

There is a drain between the freezing radiator behing the freezer compartment. The only way to get to that radiator is to remove the lining of the freezer.

There is a rubber elbow att he top left of the main fridge compartment . Remove that elbow by gently pulling it. Get a bit of flexible electrical cable and feed it down the pipe that is behind the lining of the main compartment and wobble it up and down that should make sure the pipe is clear.

then pust the cable upwards into the pipe coming down from the freezer. that should make sure that is clear.

The pipe that runs domn the back of the main compartment comes out down below someplace. I am in the process of finding out where.

Want to remove the doors on my side by side whirlpool fridge have icemaker and water in door

When removing doors with an ice maker. Under cover on top off unit there is an electrical hook up, unplug it. then at bottom of freezer door there is a water line, it has a quick connect on it. Push in to release then pull apart. Take screws out of top hinge and remove door. Same on refridge side, just no wires or water line.

Did you actually break the elbow? you may be able to cut the tubing back and get a new surface for the elbow to push back into. if not a 5/16" push in connector is what you need you may be able to find this at a water condition store such as culligan.

The copper line under my s. b. s. fridge keeps freezing

the line that you ae seeing is the suction line . It sounds like the defrost timer may have gave up the ghost on you and the unit is not going into defrost. Take the model Number and make to the local parts house and have thenm get you a timer. They are real easy to replace and that should take care of the problem.

Fridge collecting water inside

The drain is clogged.

If you want to DIY then here it goes:

Some models have access to the drain by an elbow on the outside back of the Ref. Disconnect the drain line here and if you find the clog, great. If there is no visible drain line and elbow on the outside then...

Hopefully you can access the drain in the back top center of the fridge. This will require removing plastic covers, usually a few screws is all you have to deal with. You must get everything removed so you can see the drain hole in the back wall then you can use a tube and a little air pressure to clear the drain from that point down. If this is clear and you don't find any cloggs from that point down then the clog is at the top of the drain which is in the freezer.

This is going to require a little more work.
1. Take everything out of the freezer, put it in a cooler or just pile it in the sink.
2. Take the icemaker out.
3. Take out the back panel so you can see the cooling coils.
4. The drain hole is in the center directly under these coils but may not be visible because of ice in the drain pan.
5. Use a hair dryer to melt this ice and clear the drain so water flows down.

I get no water or Ice

Usually this problem can be remedied by replacing the water supply valve that is under the back of the unit. IF replacing the valves does not fix the problem then there is not power getting to the valves to turn them on/off at the appropriate times.

Whirlpool gold, freezer on top, single door
