Re: water leaking from bottom of fridge

Doors might not be sealing? Is it coming from the fridge or freezer? Try turning off for 30 seconds than back on again and try settting the themostat in the fridge at a different temperature - Up or\then down to see if that does anything if you can change it

You probably have a sensor issues there are two one for the freezer one for the frig. Check your freezer temp it should be at 0 degress at manufactor setting. If the temp is below -10 you freezer sensor is bad. Otherwise your frig sensor is bad. CHECK FREEZER FIRST!!!

check the defrost thermostat , and any temp sensor that can determine the freezer temperature.
If this fridge temperature is electronically controlled, the freezer control board must also be tested.

Frigidiare PLHS39EESS9 Ice build up in bottom of Freezer

I had the same problem with my Jenn-air side-by-side

Your freezer has a defrost cycle and when the freezer temp is set too cold, your drainage pan and tube freezes up (behind the back panels in the freezer) and when that gets full it spills over too the bottom of the fridge and keeps building up until you notice.
  • Un-plug fridge and put your food in coolers or another fridge.
  • Defrost the freezer, remove the ice from the bottom.
  • Remove the back panel/s (in the freezer).
  • Check the drainage pan. If it is iced up, you'll have to carefully remove the ice and check the drainage hole.
  • If the hole is iced up, so is the first 1-2 inches of the plastic tube leading to the main drainage pan behind and under the fridge.
  • You can use a hair drier to speed up defrost.
  • To defrost the hole and tube I used round ended metal (nut pics or beater attachment ends- avoid sharp objects) heated up in boiling water and gently forced down into the hole and tube until defrosted.
  • Check flow(by pouring warm water) down and looking behind and under fridge(with flashlight) to see if flowing into main drainage pan.
  • Turn up your freezer temp and check with a thermometer. Your freezer temp was probably set too cold
Mine is going on 5 months with no problem. If this continues, it might be the defroster.
Good Luck!

Fridge and freezer not cooling down

It seems it's the defrost sensor (freezer side). Waiting for it to come, ordered this morning. It appears to be a defrost fault, having read on the web it seems you can check the defrost sensor with a meter across whilst holding the actual sensor in your hand tightly to see if the resistance changes, anyway it didn't. Will post when the new one comes and I change it.

I have a Hotpoint hss25gfpe ww fridge with ice and water in the door. The ice works, but I am unable to get water. Why can I not get any water? The serial # is tf261776 if this is needed.

Most water dispensing fridges have a tank in the fridge to keep the water cold. If the fridge temp is too low it might freeze the tank and stop the water from dispensing. Also check the water filter to make sure it is not frozen. Water filters should be replaced every 6-12 months, if it's been longer than that it might be too full of dirt to allow water past. It also might be the water inlet valve is not opening.
