Hello,
You can fix this yourself , all you need to do is to follow the instructions below , this will make your ice maker stops leaking.
Pull the refrigerator away from the wall and locate the copper water supply line. it runs from the house water line to the refrigerator water supply valve. To get to the supply valve, you may have to use a screwdriver to remove your refrigerator back access panel.
Inspect the copper line , the supply valve, and the plastic supply tube that runs from the other side of the supply valve to the back of the ice maker.
If the connection is leaking, tighten it with an adjustable wrench. if either the copper supply line or the supply tube is leaking, you need to replace it.
Turn off the water supply. the valve may be under the kitchen sink or sink or connected to a cold water pipe in your basement.
Remove the faulty line and take it to a hardware store to get an exact replacement.
Install the new line , tighten the connections with the adjustable wrench and turn the water back on.

Take care

Jenn-Air Side-by-side Refrigeration not making ice and leaks water underneath when ice maker arm is up


With the arm up in the ice tray, the water solenoid valve should be closed. When the arm drops, that tells the ice maker to open the water solenoid valve to fill the ice maker tray. It sound like the leak is at the inlet side of the water solenoid valve. On some models its not easy to get to, but follow the water line to it. Hope this is it for you. Good luck.

Leak on the ice maker water supply


Good day,
The house water supply is connected to a dual water valve on the bottom rear of the machine. It splits there going to the ice maker and water in the door.
If the ice maker side is feeding water to the ice maker even though the ice maker is in the off position means the diaphragm in the valve is leaking and must be replaced. Very common problem.

Shelf kitchenaid Refrigerator's ice maker leaking water


Turn off the water line that goes to the refrigerator and see if still leaking if not the problem is with the solenoid valve ,which is an electric valve that opens only when the ice maker calls for water and is located at the back of the fridge in the bottom behind the cover(if your refrigerator has water and ice dispenser ,Its called dual valve). And if leaks when you turn on the water ,this part has to be replaced .But if leaks and overflow the ice maker only when it calls for water the problem is in the ice maker and to repair it will cost almost as a new one .

Ice maker is leaking water. Never has worked well takes for ever to spit out ice. Now ice is all over everything in freezer since leaking but will still make some ice. I have had for 2 years/.


Do you have a water softener? This puppy won't work right if you do. ice maker leaking water? Ok lets do the scenario. This fancy ice maker will fill the ice mold in stages according to resistance levels measured by the control inside the IM. I initially will judge resistance in the ice mold and then will call for water. It will again judge for full ice mold by checking resistance. The 3rd attempt will supposedly satisfy the requirements of the ice mold. If the water softener goes into reverse osmosis(that time or the month for water sofeners). Then electrolysis will occur in the ice maker and some different resistance readings from what is built in is read. Oops! overflow of ice maker and weird ice production. Solution. Remove ice maker from the loop. Water softening is good for the clothes but hell on the ice production.

Ice maker leaks with or with out power on the far right side


The water valve (or solenoid) that only lets the water through from the water supply line when the ice maker calls for it is leaking you have to replace it.

Water leaks from ice maker in ice tray.


When the ice maker calls for water it'll be filling for about 7 seconds if is more the ice maker inside control board is bad , but if there's water in the ice maker all the timeeven after or before it calls for water it means that the water valve (solenoid) that supplies water to the ice maker is leaking and you have to replace it.
