Remove the food and the ice maker from the freezer ( if equiped ) . Remove the rear freezer panel . Using a hair dryer , start in the middle , below the coils , defrosting , until you see the drain hole . Use hot water to help defrost the hole . Once water starts going thru the hole , use a small hose inserted into the hole , and blow thru , to remove any unseen debris in the drain line . Use an ALUMINUM or COPPER solid wire , 14-16 guage , with the insulation completely off , and insert one end into the drain hole as far as possible without any force . Wrap the other end about 1 1/2 to 2 turns , around the black rod (defrost heater) , above the hole . When refrig goes into defrost , the heat will transfer from the heater , to the wire , keeping the hole from freezing up again .

My water dispencer is driping water how would i fix that?


Hello, Self- defrosting refrigerators disposed of the water generated during the defrost cycle, usually via a tube or channel that directs the water to a pan at the bottom of the refrigerator. From the pan water normally evaporate. If the tube or channel is clogged or obstructed, the water backs up and leaks into the inside of the refrigerator compartment, then the water build up at the bottom, inside of the refrigerator. When the water has build up for a time it may spill out of the front of the door opening. To fix this problem, Clear the drain tube or channel and allow the defrost water to flow down to drain pan.
Thanks

Ice not being produced


hi there,

check to see there is any frost building up, either on the water line or the inside of the door.

if there is no ice build-up, you may have to have the water valve (inside the icemaker) replaced.

Water can leak from these areas:

The inside ceiling of the refrigerator
The inside back wall of the refrigerator
Self-defrosting refrigerators usually dispose of the water generated during the defrost cycle via a tube or channel that directs the water to a pan at the bottom of the refrigerator. From the pan, the water normally evaporates. (See a more detailed explanation of this in the How Things Work section of our website).

If the tube or channel is clogged or obstructed, the water backs up and leaks into the inside of the refrigerator compartment. Then the water builds up at the bottom, inside of the refrigerator. When the water has built up for a time it may spill out of the front of the door opening. To fix this problem, clear the drain tube or channel and allow the defrost water to flow down to the drain pan.

In some refrigerators, the defrost water is intentionally directed down the back wall of the refrigerator, where it then flows to the bottom of the refrigerator compartment and out to a small drain--usually located beneath one of the drawers at the bottom of the refrigerator. If the drain becomes clogged or blocked, the water may back up. To fix this problem, clear the obstruction.
    The inside ceiling of the refrigerator Water accumulating on the ceiling of the refrigerator is usually caused by a clogged drain in the freezer section beneath the evaporator. The clogged drain will cause water from the self defrost cycle to leak into the divider between the freezer and refrigerator. This water may then freeze and cause condensation build-up on the refrigerator ceiling. The solution to this problem begins with unclogging the drain. It may also be necessary to remove the entire freezer/refrigerator divider to thoroughly dry the insulation in the divider. Occasionally the insulation needs to be replaced to prevent a recurrence of the problem. This can be a big job – you may want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician.

    The inside back wall of the refrigerator In some refrigerators, the water from the defrost cycle is intentionally directed down the back wall of the refrigerator, where it then flows to the bottom of the refrigerator compartment and out to a small drain - usually located beneath one of the drawers at the bottom of the refrigerator. If the drain becomes clogged or blocked, the water may back up. To fix this problem, clear the obstruction.

    • the drain line in the freezer may be clogged forcing water to drip into the freezer. clean out the freezer and pour some hot water in the back of the freezer to unclog the drain.
    • another cause of this would be if the door is not sealing properly then the inside of the refrigerator will build up condensation.

    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.
