    The 'new' solution you offered has been offered verbatim by another expert. Interesting.

    I did not expect a canned response, and do not want to pay for one. I provided specific information and requested same.

    Thank you for any help you can give.

    So sorry! Apparently I misread the header/post, and thought I was getting two copies of the same solution.

    My apologies!

    You can blister me here - that's what I did to you!

Open the doors all the way and check the seals near the inside closest to the hinges. Fridges are prone to wearing in these areas because they are closest to the frame and rub each time the door is opened and closed.

Also run something metalic around the seal to check the magnets inside the seal have not lost their strength.
New seals can be purchased, and there are places that will even come out to measure up the doors and refit them.

It could also be in need of regassing, though the first sign of that is normally that it will freeze over even in the fridge compartment.

Hope that helps =)

    Something just occurred to me while taking care of another problem. This unit has an icemaker correct. If it does, then chances are the water is leaking from the inlet pipe on the back of the fridge. Turn the water off at the tap and see if the leak continues.

There is a thick sticky black substance leaking from my refrigerator for the past two weeks on the left front side. Frigidaire model p/n 241543966


Hello Melanie;


My name is Peter. I am a retired field service technician.

You do not have a refrigerant leak. Refrigerant is clear in color.

You have a water leak. The black sticky substance is either coming from your bottom condenser cooling coil or just general dirt under your refrigerator that accumulates over time. The coil under your refrigerator collects dirt as well.

You need to pull the refrigerator out so you can get behind it.
Unscrew the bottom back cover. Inspect for the water leak source. Your condensate drain pan may be leaking or dislodged.

The water line to your ice maker may be leaking.

Your water supply shut off valve to your refrigerator may be leaking.

My refrigerator is leaking water making noise and not making ice


It sounds like you have a leak (dry rot plastic tubing) on the ice maker water line. The leaking water is being picked up by you condenser fan near the water valves and probably causing the noise.
First, turn the water shut off valve to the refrigerator off.
You have a dangerous situation here. You need to stop the water leak. If the water leak gets to the electrical components of your unit, well it is dangerous!
You will be safe for now if you shut off the water.
You need a skilled technician to fix the problem. Just shut the water supply to the refrigerator off.
My name is Peter, retired Sears Service Refrigeration Technician. Pull the unit out so you can remove the lower back cover behind the refrigerator.

A GE Profile Model, double door refrigerator with a water leak


If the leak is on the refrig water valve where the wall water line connects to , then use a 1/2" wrench and tighten the fitting on the water valve itself . If the leak is on the plastic tubing at the bottom of the refrig water valve , pull up on the small white ring while pushing down on the plastic tube to remove it from the valve . Cut off about 1 " of the tubing and reinsert it into the valve with pretty good pressure to be sure it is inserted completely .
