Check to make sure that the doors are 'sealing' all around the face of the gasket. If not, it is pulling outside (moisure laden) air inside, condensing, and then draining out to the drain tray on top of the compressor. Replace the gasket if it is not sealing!!

Condensation water build up inside refrigerator


The tray underneath your fridge is probably clogged, and overflowing. There is an evap tray underneath, and if it does not get adequate airflow, it will overflow, and leak out.

Clean the bottom front vents, and underneath the fridge to ensure adequate airflow.

My Liebheer stand alone fridge is filling up with water in the bottom of the fridge.


This is due to the defrost water condesing and overflowing out from the drain tank.
So keep the fridge in a normal temperature and make sure that the tank is empty. Also check if this is an overflow or that the drain hose is leaking from the top of the evaporator collecction tray. If so check out the leak point and patch up.
Other wise if the fridge is working fine all what is needed to check out using a good inspectiion lamp, check the tilt of the fridge and set using a water level.

Icemaker overflows water , repairman has replaced the icemaker twice, after this last time, it started making 1 tray of cubes per week, then after about 2 weeks, started overflowing water again.


Good day,
If it is erratic as you describe and replacing the ice maker twice has not resolved the issue it would make sense to replace the water valve in the back rear of the machine, if it hasn't been done so yet. It's the flakiest part of the system and has the highest failure rate. It's been known to fill too little, to much, and sometimes not at all.

GE model tfx26krda side by side refridgerator/freezer


If the drain catch tray is full the unit will overflow. Look underneath in the rear/fron of bottom the fridger to remove and empty the catch tray. If there is food or debris in the bottom of the fridge (drain grates) it will keep water from going down.

Kenmore Ice Maker Not Making Ice


the water that is frozen in the fill tube could have come from the old water valve that you replaced ,you got to get the ice out, the easiest way ,though not the fastest ,is to unplug fridge for 24 hrs . and leave the doors open to let it defrost, the plug back up and hopefully in 5 or 6 hrs you'll have ice

Refrigerator has water leak


Had the same problem with mine. Got a technician to have a look. Inside the fridge at the back there's an overflow tray. CHeck if this is not blocked. Clear it by putting a tray behind your fridge under the overlfow pipe and pour hot water through the overflow tray inside the fridge. Sometimes food gets stuck in there and nobody thinks to clear this out. Mine was easily unblocked and now its stopped leaking.
