Question about Hotpoint HSS25GFP Side by Side Refrigerator

Ice maker supply system leaking at back of freezer wall.

I have a Hotpoint side-by-side and lately it has started leaking at the back wall of the freezer where the ice maker water supply enters. I first noticed it because of a noise coming from the freezer. Upon examination, it was caused by ice buildup that had spread so far that it touched the fan blade. I melted the ice and removed and examined the plastic fill tube. It is intact, no holes or cracks. It made sure it was pushed all the way back into the rubber fitting in the back wall of the freezer, but once the icemaker was turned back on it resumed leaking. (I visually confirmed this was the leak location.) Any suggestions?

Frigidaire glrs264za ice in freezer

The ice-maker supply line enters the back of the freezer near the top. There is a rubber piece that fills the ice tray, attached from the outside. If that is cracked you will have a leak. There is also a water line that runs through the refrigerator to the reservoir that supplies chilled water at the door. All of these lines should be checked for leaks that can drip into the freezer compartment.

I have a Frigidaire professional side by side fridge model# LPHS2687KFO water is leaking before entering ice maker thus the ice maker is not working, water is leaking in freezer

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze blocking the fill tube.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

Ice maker not making ice after replacing water line.

Ice makers are a common problem. On many brands there is a reset button behind the plastic cover. However if you physically see Ice clogging your water inlet to the ice maker, this will without a doubt prevent the ice maker from making ice. Use hot water or a steamer to unclog the ice or you can leave the unit unplugged for a few hours to defrost the freezer. You should be able to hear when the ice maker cycles and lets in water. Note: if you're getting plenty of water out of your in door water dispenser, then it's NOT a water supply problem. You may need to check the solenoid that controls water entering the ice maker.
