I just fixed similar issue. Defrost drain plugged. Take back panel off and behind fan is back hose. Take it out from the bottom and use something like coat hanger to unplug.

Also need to take off front panel from inside freezer and remove ice build up and thaw with hot water or hair dryer. Once done you should notice water in drain pan from back. Put all together.

I have an admiral fridge freezer model number GS2126CEDW.water keeps leaking from the front of the freezer and a build up of frozen water has accumalated at the bottom of the freezer.A person has advised...


hello again,

Sorry to hear that the drain is clear and not the problem, some of the other things that cause that water are;

Freezer door gasket...is it curled up in the corners espicially on the hinged side so air is leaking in and condensating resulting in water

The tube that send water into the icemaker is partially frozen so when water enters the icemaker it's being sprayed and dripping to the bottom(if thats the case ice would probably be built up all over the freezer)

The door for the ice dispenser isn't fully closing and will cause condesation just like the door gasket would

Good luck,
GENE

The freezer side every 2 to 3 days the fan makes a noise and the ice begins to melt. It drips from the ice dispenser. The following day every thing is frozen again. The refrigerator stays cold.


This may sound a bit harsh but turn off the water to your icemaker for several days. What your describing sounds like the icemaker water valve is leaking water by the diaphram and is leaking into your freezer. This is a common symptom of failing ice maker water valves. I just went through this on my own personal refrigerator where ice was building up. After changing the icemaker water valve all the ice build up ceased.
So turn off the icemaker water supply for a few days.. break out the ice trays if need be and see if the ice build up stops. If it does then the ice maker water valve will need to be replaced. Fyi they run $38 to 55.00 on average and you can change it yourself. Should the need arise here is a link to a replacement water valve source: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=113933&diagram_id=337176#d337176

Ice maker performing poorly only makes 1 or 2 loads per day


check to see if the line coming into the icemaker is frozen nor has ice building up in it if your getting water to the ice maker but its taking to long to drop them then replace the icemaker

LG LFX25980ST REFRIGERATOR W/BOTTOM FREEZER SHOWS MESSAGE ON DISPLAY ER IF WHAT DOES THIS MEAN


The control is not seeing a feedback signal from the ice room fan. (the fan inside the freezer which pushes cold air up to the in door icemaker) It is probably blocked with a build up of ice or frost, preventing the fan blade from turning.

Refrigerator icemaker won't work and refrigerator fills with wate


check your fill tube you might have an ice build up on the end
the fill tube is where the water dumps into the ice machine

All water underneath.ice in the bottom.freezer working.not making


If I understand you correctly your water line that comes through the back wall of the freezer and into the icemaker is frozen. If so you have a bad water valve. When the valve goes bad it will not seal off the water. It will seep causing a slow drip where the water comes out at you icemaker. It'd slow enough to freez causing a ice blockage. This will not allow water to come through and fill your icemaker when it calls for water.

Not getting ice


sounds as if the icemaker is getting too much water and causing the unit to flood out. aside from replacing the icemaker you may be able to adj the amount of water going into the icemaker. there is a screw that holds the front cover of the icemaker inplace. remove the cover and you should see a screw  with a + and - sign on it. try turning the screw 1/4 turn then wait for the icemaker to cycle and see if it improves. keep making theses adjustments until your problem is solved thx peyton
