The fridge is leaking water and going onto the floor underneath the fridge how can l fix this problem


If equipped with Ice Maker and water dispenser we can assume that the water feed has developed a leak. To confirm protect the floor in-front of the machine pull the machine out from the wall and reach around behind and turn off the water feed. CAUTION the wheels from a full machine will scar the kitchen flooring. Mop up the water and dry out the floor.

If the water no longer returns than you can assume that the source of the water is with the ice maker or water dispenser.

If the water continues and the machine operates normally (freezer below 10 F and refrigerator < 40 F) then it is the defrost cycle. The good news the ice maker might be alright. The defrost cycle has a drain tube. About twice a day or less often the machine has an automated defrost that allows for the ice build up on the evaporator coils to melt and run through a tube to a tray under the machine. the water in the tray evaporates between cycles.

First check if there is any water collecting at the bottom inside the refrigerator portion of the machine. If so with the water turned off you can be certain that the defrost cycle water is not being contained with in the drain tube. It is common that the drain tube can either plug from lint etc or ice over, Included i will link a few videos describing the situation and depending on your model a course of action.

Whirlpool refrigerator ED2FHEXNQ00 - water shoots out the front


USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!!
I ACCEPT NO LIABILITY FOR PERSONAL INJURY OR PROPERTY DAMAGE.
YOU CAN BE KILLED IF YOU DON'T UNPLUG THE REFRIGERATOR!!!! EVEN AFTER UNPLUGGING IT, BE PRUDENT TO NOT TOUCH BARE WIRES OR TERMINALS.

If it is like my Kenmore, there are two solenoids at the back bottom right (facing the back) of refrigerator where the water supply connects to the refrigerator, and it sounds as if both solenoids (one for water dispenser and the other for ice maker) are energized at the same time as though the hot wires to the solenoids are shorted together. Possibly, if the replacement icemaker is not an exact replacement, a wiring difference might cause this short. ONLY IF YOU ARE QUALIFIED TO DO ELECTRICAL WORK will I suggest the following. YOU CAN BE KILLED IF YOU DON'T
UNPLUG THE REFRIGERATOR!!!! Disconnect one wire at a time by pulling and wiggling from side to side if the connectors are fastons , and with an ohm meter check for a short between the two hot wires of the solenoids. Remember where each wire goes. To determine which are the hot wires first measure each wire to a bare metal place on the refrigerator. Continuity between the wires (2) to the bare metal indicates ground. The remaining 2 wires are the hot wires. Continuity between these wires indicates they are shorted together, which is the cause of your problem. Seek out the short. Since I am not an expert myself, the preceding suggestion may not work if the short only occurs at the time that the icemaker calls for water.

Ice maker will not make ice


It sounds like you might have a bad fill valve. There are several reasons that an ice-maker doesn't get water. If the freezer isn't cold enough, the ice-maker thermostat will not allow it cycle. There are two different styles of ice-makers. Pull the white cover off of the ice-maker, if you see two gears the you have one of the earlier models. Turn the smaller of the two gears counterclockwise slowly until the gears start to turn by themselves. Now if you do not have the two gears under the cover, then you have a modular ice-maker. There are several holes in the brown plate. Each hole will have a letter beside it. Jumper between the T and H holes until the ice-maker starts to turn by itself ( you should hear a click if you'll listen closely). Now that you ave cycled the ice-maker, check and see if there is water in the ice tray. If you still have no water then change your fill valve. If you do have water then its usually cheaper to replace the actual ice-maker. Be sure to check the temp of the freezer, most ice-makers will not cycle above 10F degrees. Most ice-makers are around $130. Most valves are around $50. I hope this helps you solve the NO ICE situation. Thanks for using fixya..com , please let me know how it goes, thanks mike

My automatic ice maker is not makin ice anymore, looks like the water hose is filled with ice, how do u either remove the hose or defrost it thanks


This problem begins with a slow leaking 4389177 Dual Water Control Valve kit at the ice maker side of the valve on rear of refrigerator near floor. As the water slowly leaks upward to the ice maker the water freezes. Best thing for now is shut off water supply at its source until you are able to get a replacement kit part 4389177 You may defrost the tube with a hair drier but until the leaky valve is replaced you will continue to get a freezing mess. Hope this has helped answer your questions, Thanks, Sea Breeze sea_breeze_59.jpg Appliance Technician

Whirlpool ice maker


could be a problem with the ice maker itself or the water solenoid that controls the water.
the ice maker itself controls the solenoid. if there is a stuck contact, then water would continue to run.

if the solenoid has a leaky valve, water would still come in even there is no more power.

GE side by side leaks water onto floor, no ice


There is a pipe that runs up the back of the appliance and feeds the ice maker , if this freezes inside then it canpush the fitting off the back of the appliance and cause water to go everywhere. Usual problem is a leaky watervalve causeing water to drip into the pipe which freezes and builds up until it is totally blocked.

Ice Maker water keeps running


Bad I/M, won't shut off after harvest and continues to restart cycle. Heater in I/M should warm up thermostat after first harvest and stop unit from recycling.
