Empty the ice from the ice maker. It sounds like you have a build-up of ice between the ice maker and freezer wall. When you thaw this ice, the bulge should go away. You may need to temporarily move the ice maker for a few hours while the freezer thaws.

Small water leak on floor on both sides of door. w ater is not coming from refrigerator or bottom freezer unit


Did you notice any moisture on the main cabinet at the area the doors seal against? Some models have a heater imbedded in the cabinet edge at the door seal to keep the metal cabinet from sweating much like a glass does when filled with water and ice cubes. If the heater is not on the metal sweats and leaks down to the floor. Some refrigerators have an option switch called and energy saver that can turn that heater on or off. Off is OK for winter but needs to be on in humid weather if house is not air conditioned. Heater could also be burned out (bad).

Refrigerator is warm


If the fresh food side is warm but the freezer side is cold, check for ice build up around the evaporator coil which would mean that you defrost circuit is not working.
If you are talking about the outside of the cabinet being warm then check and clean you condenser grill under your unit. If it is dirty and can't disapate the heat from the coolant, the outside of the cabinet will get warm.

Frig is very hot on the outside ban that meets the seal


That heat that you feel is part of the design of all refrigerators. Those heaters are there to keep water from condensing on the outside of the cabinet around the freezer door. Just like water condenses on a cup of Ice water. It will do the same on a refrigerator. If those small heaters were not there. The water would cause the paint to rust badly. There are various arrangements of heaters used on Freezers and refrigerators around the doors. Particularly the Freezer door.
As long as the fridge is cooling properly it is fine.
If the fridge fails to get cold, the outside of the cabinet will actually get quite hot.
Hope this helps,
Best, Mark

The ice-cube maker on our Sub-Zero 650 has stopped making ice.


try replace the cheapest part first.( vater valve). you only need 2 components to make ice. water valve and ice maker.is simple and easy water valve located in the bottom part of the unit. remove the kick plate. left side. and color blue. ice maker inside the freezer. (DISCONECT POWER BEFORE SERVICE. ALSO TURN WATER SUPPLY OFF.) try main box , garage. and water meter outside your house. good luck

Refrigerator gets hot on left outside


Hi,
There are a couple of things that could cuase this and neither are anything to worry about.
One cause could be a heat strip to keep the outside of the refrigerator from sweating.
The other is the the condenser coils sometimes are run up the side of the unit to cool the freon and disipate heat.
As long as everything else is working properly I would not be concerned about the warmth. It is "normal".

Hopefully this will help you solve your question.

Thanks for using Fixya!!

Condensation on the outside freezer area


condensation occurs on a surface which is colder than its surroundings.

The worst thing is the insulaion in the cabinet is water/ice logged. This would require removing the insulation and refoaming the cabinet.

You may be able to feel if the surface is cold.

I have seen a frig with voids in the insulation cause this problem- same cure- refoam.

Fridge does not keep cold, but freezer is over freezing, icemaker not making ice also.


You should be able hear, and feel the air from, a running fan inside the cabinet, in either side. The common arrangement is having the coils located (behind the wall) in the freezer section and then the fan moves a controlled amount of the frigid air to the refrigerator section via openings located in the rear of the compartment. The vents are normally adjustable so the temperature can be balanced between the two compartments.  If there is no noticeable air coming from this vent, then the fan has died.

The outside middle front & left hand side of the fridge were hot


The reason you feel heat by the middle of the door is because of the "mullion heater' or anti-sweat.
Check the temperature of the freezer, must be below 12*F for the ice maker to work.

Cooling sometimes, freezer leaking water when it stops freezing


It is probably the defrost thermostat located on upper condenser coil to the left of the fan in the freezer compartment. If not, it could be the defrost timer located near the thermostat in the refrigerator under the plastic dome where the light is. If the defost thermostat or defrost timer is not cycling the defroster heater element on and off correctly... an ice dam forms clogging the drain tube which freezes and blocks water (from the the defroster) to draining down and into the evaporator pan located on top of the compressor in the rear of the unit near the floor.
