If your hose is copper or plastic, this is a common problem.

I reccomend replacing it with a stainless steel braided, icemaker line. They are more flexible and less prone to leaks.

Icemaking is ok but I find water at the bottom of the frige .What seems to be the Problem tHIS A ULINE BAR REFIRERATOE WITH iCE MAKER


Your feed line may have a leak in the line itself or in one of the connectors. This it the line that sends water to the automatic ice-maker. Check the line coming from the wall to the ice-maker connector and slide your hand down the line. You will find water somewhere along this line and you have found your leak. This should be very easy to fix.

Ice maker not making ice. Water disp inside frig disp water.


the line that gives water to the ice maker, every time the water comes down it lives a drip of water that turns to ice blocking the line, get some hot water and a towel and place the hot wet towel on top of the line intel it melts the ice in side the line. it happens to my frige at list once a year. if that is not the problem the valve that supplies water tho the ice maker needs replacing, it's behind the frige at the bottom, where the line coming from the house meets the frige.

Ice maker not making ice


yes, there is 2 lines, one for the water and the other for the ice. you can take the back lower panel behind the frige and take a look at the water line coming from the house where it connects to the frige, you can disconet the line that goes to the freezer, and put the line inside of a container of about 1 litter, and waite for about 30 minutes it at to have some water inside just enough to fill the ice maker. if you donot get any water, replace that valve.

Leaky fridge


This is defrost condensate.  You have a hose going to a tray below the box that is blocked.  Rod it out with soft wire or similar.  Clean the condenser while you're in there!
