I have an electrolux double door freezer on the bottom. the ice maker leakes water from the back and water drips from the dispenser inthe front. the cubs in the tray clump together does anyone help me...


That is simply your dual water control valve found on the back of most refrigerators. If I had your model number I would be able to point out the part number and location. Here is what happens. The water valve begins to slowly leak water that comes to the ice maker when not needed. It moves slow enough that it begins to freeze solid inside the fill tube to ice maker and when the ice maker calls for water there is a big chunk of ice in the way and the water goes everywhere but where it should. Here is a short clip with lots of info, Please Rate and Thanks, Sea Breeze

Noticed 3 days ago. The ice tray was frozen solid to the top with water not ice cubes. looks like iceberg all the way back to where water line connects to ice maker. Now water had leaked somehow up to the...


What I have seen in a thing like this is a simple water valve drip. Some of them drip like a faucet. This causes the cubes to stick together and all kinds of grief. I have your service manual.

Model gd5shaxLT02 stopped making ice. Looks like


The water inlet valve on the back of unit where the water supply connects opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze blocking the fill tube.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

A strainer before the inlet valve can also get stopped up restricting flow.

No ice instead water dripping down into freezer making icicles


If you have icicles, where are they forming at? If on the front of the ice bucket, then look at the dispenser shoot door is closing all the way. The way to check that is to look into the shoot while holding a flash light (or bright light) up into the dispenser from the front side of door. You should see no light.

Now if you have ice buildup around the inside of bucket, mainly from the ice maker to the bucket then you either have an ice maker that is leaking water or you have a water valve that is not shutting off all the way. Suspect water valve if you have ice buildup within water inlet tube on top of ice maker. Frozen water within tube is good indication that water valve is leaking.

Look inside refrig side of refrig, usually located on right top side of wall, you will find a tag with model number and serial number. Need both to get you the right part number for ice maker or water valve.

I have a Jenn-aire JSD2695KES - it is a side by side, a couple of years old with an ice maker. Ice gets jammed in the last ice spot in my ice maker. It has been getting stuck in other spots lately, too,...


That sounds like a frozen over water fill tube due to a leaking water control valve. You may need to pull the ice maker out to see it but what you described is what happens when this happens. If frozen over the water will still come out on some models because there is a split in the top of the fill tube. Or something needs corrected on the amount of water time is OK for your ice maker. let me see if I can find the service manual for your model Be back soon Sea Breeze

Electrolux will not make ice. the water will dispense


Is the freezer cold enough? Should be close to 10 degrees.
Is there water or ice in the ice mold? If not put water in it and see if it dumps the ice after it’s frozen. If there is ice, lift the cut off arm and let it drop to see if it will start.
If it does dump the ice but don’t refill with water.
Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

RS25AWXEW01 side x side refrigerator has leak at ice maker water drips into frozen ice chute and leaks onto floor and also in freezer compartment


If it overfills and drips, look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water.

If it continuously drips, replace the water inlet valve on the back where the house water supply comes in.
