There is a blockage from the fridge to the compressor in the drainage line. Easiest way to clear is to locate the compressor and find the pipe above the compressor. Blow into the pipe hard until restriction is cleared. Now clean mess inside fridge resulting from blockage being cleared. Back to normal.

Water is pouring from the ice maker on Kenmore side by side, model # 106.56662500


Hello,

The reason all the ice freezes together and you see icecicles forming from the icemaker,is going to caused by the water inlet valve on the back of the refrig.is not fully closing but instead it's seeping water through it and dripping into the ice storage bucket. To stop that from happening the water inlet valve would need to be replaced.

On refrigerators that have a built in water filter,alot of times their will be 2 water valves and the one that is bad causing water to seep through it will be the one called the SECONDARY valve.

Water leaking onto floor lower left side


Hi,

Move the refrigerator out from the wall and look for the location of the leak.

Step 2
Check the side panels and the seals around the door for beads of "sweat." This could indicate a condensation problem.

Step 3
Check the floor. A puddle there could indicate a missing or cracked drip pan, or a leak in the water line that feeds your ice maker.

Step 4
Check for water seeping from the front of the freezer or the refrigerator. This could indicate your defrost drain is plugged or your ice maker is leaking.

Fixing a condensation problem
Step 1
Check that the doors shut correctly. Hold each door about halfway open, then let go. If the doors don't shut completely, adjust the screw legs on the front of the refrigerator so the unit tilts back a bit. With adjustable pliers, turn each leg one revolution clockwise. Recheck the doors and, if necessary, repeat the process until they shut securely.

Step 2
Inspect the door gaskets. Look for debris that may keep the doors from shutting. Also check for cracks or gaps in the gaskets that could allow the cold air to seep out. If you find debris, clean the gaskets with warm, soapy water. If you find cracks or gaps, you'll need to replace the gaskets (see How to Fix a Refrigerator That Cools Poorly).

Step 3
If your refrigerator is equipped with a door-frame heater that evaporates condensation, make sure the heater is turned on. The switch should be located with your other refrigerator controls

Hope this helpout....

Maytag ice maker will not release cubes


Sounds like it has a " seeping " water valve . Only thing to do is replace the water inlet valve . There is a certain amount of water to go into icemaker at fill . A seeping valve will let water continually drip into icemaker , making large cubes which icemaker cannot dump . A larger amount of seeping , will overfill the icemaker , and drip into the freezer and floor .

GE Side by Side Refrigerator seeping water onto door


Hey, thanks for the photos. Have seen this problem before. Seal the recess area, at the front edge and the front corners, with a little clear silicone, to prevent water from getting behind the stainless steel door panel. I've heard people say to seal the rectangular holes along the bottom side of the door panel recess cut out also, but that shouldn't be necessary, as if you still had water behind the panel, it would just then seep down behind the SS door panel and continue to cause problems. The real cure is to keep water from getting in there in the first place.

Water seeping around fitting on back where water line fastens tp


Where does the water seep from?

The compression fitting you speak of is for the ice maker and through door water (if you have it.).

If water is on the floor, then chances are the drain pan underneath the unit has a hole in it, or for some reason, the water is not getting to the pan.

If water accumulates inside the freezer, check that the tube leading to the pan on the bottom of the refer is not clogged in some way.

If the water is in the refrigerator side, there may be a hole in the tank for the through the door water dispenser. It would leak everytime the icemaker dropped ice and refilled.
