Question about Refrigerators

Open Question

I have a Maytag Refrigerator with an ice maker and it is leaking. The model is msd2454grw. The water drips inside the freezer and freezes. Now the part that turns the ice out and dispenses it has broke off of the white plastic cover. So now I not only have a dripping ice maker but now the dispenser doesn't work. I think that the water getting frozen in the freezer caused the dispenser to break off. I need a new cover to mount the motor dipenser back on and probably a ice tray maker. What do you think?

    Thank you for your prompt reply. I looked at the fill tube and I don't feel or see any ice build up in it. The ice maker does fill up and releases the cubes but seems to be leaking, it looks like from the bottom edge of the rear of the tray that the ice is made from. I was going to attempt removal of the ice maker but I wasn't sure how it was attached on the left side. I unscrewed a screw but is still attached in two places. Does the ice tray just pull up after you get the one screw out? I just wanted to get a closer look to examine it.

    Thanks

    I believe your water control valve has leaked and allowed water to freeze in the end of your fill tube. I believe also the fill tube has a split in the top to allow the water to do that to alert you and prevent further damage. I will try to find some photos and part numbers for you. Sea Breeze

check your water filter. water preasure is important in the operation of the water valves. if the filter is ok replace the valve. water filter should be changed at least once every year.

SOURCE: Water dripping from the water dispenser on freezer

If the water is dripping from the dispenser tube, you need a water valve. The valve is not shutting off completely. Check to make sure water is not dripping from ice chute. If the chute door doesn't seal off you will get moisture there and it will also frost up the ice chute.

1. Ice maker is not cold enough to start the ice making process.
3. having to take off the back panel is an indication of a problem in the defrost system. Call to have a service tech check this out.

SOURCE: Ice Maker Freezing Up and Ice not dispensing

Check your ice cube tray to see if it is warped. Mine was. I took the tray off and dipped it into boiling water and remoulded it to the original shape and re-installed it. So far no problems. The tray gets warped because of the ice cube release mechanism. The tray is rotated around until it meets a block on one corner which creates the twisting motion we used to do on manual trays. Over time it tends to warp the tray. Good luck

Ice Maker leaks water inside the freezer


I see you said you looked and the water valve is off but the only that I know of this happening is a defective water control valve. Like a dripping faucet that when off slowly drips until the ice forms and then one the ice maker dumps ice and tries to refill the water goes in every direction. Unplug water valve to confirm what I am saying, Tell me if it continues to leak. Sea Breeze

Ice accumulation on the bottom of the freezer


Your drain line is clogged, that is located behind the white wall inside of the freezer. The water comes from defrost cycle, that happens every 8-12 hours. You need to defrost it and snake it.

Model KSRS25FGWH01-water is dripping inside the freezer ice bin.


If it overfills and drips, look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water.

If it continuously drips, replace the water inlet valve on the back where the house water supply comes in.

Ice maker filling with water but not freezing into cubes.


Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

The feeder tube for the ice maker freezes and water leaks inside


First we have to determine if the problem is a faulty water valve. Reason: faulty water valve can continue to supply water even after the IM or door dispenser is finished calling for water causing a drip feed freeze up problem, or water overflow condition in the ice maker (IM). Another common cause is unrelated, but caused by a blocked drain line often resulting in thick ice build up on the bottom of the freezer, water dripping onto the floor, or water dripping into the refrigerator (top freezer mount models only) and freezing near the lights or damper ducts after defrost. Fix for this problem is to remove evap panel and clear freezer drain line with hot water or compressed air. If this is not the case, and water is dripping out of IM supply line, remove IM H20 supply line from IM at back of appliance and see if the water seems to drip out, if so, replace the water valve. If water doesn't drip out at all, replace IM, or IM module depending on the model of refrigerator that you have as contacts in the IM are also responsible for calling for H20 supply. You will have no more problems after this.
