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.

Icemaker 200D1181G026 WR30X10061 model can15. Is there anyone who can test it and rpair it. It jst stopped working. Water supply ok.

The icemaker system on these machines requires 3 things:
A working ice maker. a working water valve, and 28 degrees or better in the freezer.
Nothing else in the frig controls ice production. Most times the water valve goes first. It is recommended to replace it when replacing the ice maker. Replace the water valve now and see if the ice production starts up. If it does not you will need to get a new ice maker, the old ones are not repairable.

Inside my side by side freezer side (hss25gfta ww)

The ice maker water inlet valve has failed allowing water to pass when it is not supposed to pass. The water valve is item 800 of this link.

Changing the water valve most always returns the ice maker operation back to normal.

There is a definetely leak in the cooling gas.
Firstly... You will need to find from where the gas has leaked. It is usually on the compressor pipes..... but not always.

Secondly you are right about the Water Valve... it needs to be changed.

Ice maker not making ice

a few things, was the ice maker working before repair?? generally the ice maker need to "cool" before making ice, usually give 24 hrs to start producing ice. next perhaps the tech shut off water supply never turned back on??? bottom freezer, perhaps he had to remove the ice maker to remove the back wall of freezer and never reconnected wire harness to the back wall.
