Most likely you have a plugged and frozen defrost drain. check behind the bottom basket of your freezer section to confirm this you will find alot of ice build up. to repair you self:

  • unplug refrig.
  • unload freezer section
  • remove rear access cover (on jenn-air's there are 2 screws about mid way up they are painted white and arent very obvious).
  • clear all ice
  • flush drain hole with warm water. ( i use a turkey baster filled with hot water to get best results)
  • reassemble unit
  • reapply power
this should stop your water leak. thanks Peyton

Water is building up on bottom of fridge


If you have water build-up on the floor of the food compartment, or ice buildup on the floor of the freezer compartment, you are probably suffering from either a frost problem or from a clogged defrost drain.

Remove everything from your freezer, including all food and any shelves. Do not remove the icemaker (if installed.)
Look at and feel the panel covering the bottom or back of the freezer compartment. Is it thick with frost?
On top freezer models, are the holes in the top of the food compartment that lead to the evaporator choked with ice?
Is there ice forming on, or lots of water on the ceiling of the food compartment?
If the answer is yes to any of these questions, there's probably a defrost problem.
If you suspect a defrost problem, first remove any icemaker that may be installed. You will see a removable panel covering the entire back or bottom of your freezer compartment. There may be 6 to 10 or more screws holding it on. In some units there is a light socket attached to the panel; you'll see this arrangement most often in side-by-sides.

If you start to get an unusual buildup of ice in one particular spot in your freezer, especially beneath the icemaker, check for water leaks.
Water leaking onto the kitchen floor not traceable to one of the problems in Chapters 4 or 6 may be from a leak in the icemaker or door dispenser water system. Icemakers have a water solenoid valve mounted on the back of the fridge, usually behind the back bottom panel, and a water tube that leads straight up the back of the fridge to the icemaker. Door dispensers have a similar water solenoid valve with a water tube that leads beneath the fridge and into the door through a hollow hinge. If your fridge has both features, it's usually a dual water solenoid valve. It can be simple or not-so-simple to fix, but basically it's just a plumbing job.

The freezer side every 2 to 3 days the fan makes a noise and the ice begins to melt. It drips from the ice dispenser. The following day every thing is frozen again. The refrigerator stays cold.


This may sound a bit harsh but turn off the water to your icemaker for several days. What your describing sounds like the icemaker water valve is leaking water by the diaphram and is leaking into your freezer. This is a common symptom of failing ice maker water valves. I just went through this on my own personal refrigerator where ice was building up. After changing the icemaker water valve all the ice build up ceased.
So turn off the icemaker water supply for a few days.. break out the ice trays if need be and see if the ice build up stops. If it does then the ice maker water valve will need to be replaced. Fyi they run $38 to 55.00 on average and you can change it yourself. Should the need arise here is a link to a replacement water valve source: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=113933&diagram_id=337176#d337176

The water fill tube for the icemaker is blocked.


Replace the Dual water control valve found on the back of the refrigerator near the floor with a new one and thaw out the entrance where the water goes into the ice maker. Provide a model number found on the inside of the fresh food compartment wall and I'll try to help you find the correct part number for the water control valve. The water control valve is apparently leaking like a leaky faucet and it's freezing causing the problem

My icemaker went on the blink, found water all over kitchen floor now it will not make ice but the freezer functions great. Model number ED2FHAXB04


Sometimes the water inlet are of an ice maker for no reason will freeze up preventing water from reaching the tray and making a mess. What will happen is the ice maker fill tube on the back of the cabinet also freezes up. As a result the icemaker tries to cycle pressure then builds up in the plastic feed line to the fill tube. This pressure build up in a very "low pressure" plastic line causes that plastic line to push itself out of the press to fit connections (fittings) at the back of the unit or under the unit. Hence the next cycle it just ports water to the now open line causing water to go to the floor instead of the icemaker.

You can locate the source of the leak by simply following the plastic fill tube and re-insert it into the fitting. You still need to find the ice build up that caused the initial leak and melt that ice buildup with a hair dryer or a fan until it is clear. Once you clear the ice blockage (near the rear of the icemaker) it should work normally again.

Leaking water on the front corner of the freezer side. We have turned off the water to the icemaker and have turned off the icemaker. Still leaking, not fast, but each day I clean up a puddle.


That is from your defrost drain either being clogged with food, or covered with ice. Behind the back wall in the freezer is a drain that empties underneath the fridge. If that drain gets blocked or froze over then the water will dump into the floor of the freezer and out the door gasket. Look in your freezer floor for ice build up. If you don't see anything like that or if you think the water is coming from underneath the fridge, then it is your condensate pan underneath. They crack sometimes.

GE side by side leaks water from icemaker tube


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.

Water leaking from icemaker on outside


If this is your water dispenser leaking
Your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is probably leaking. disconnect the water line coming out of it and see if you have a slow drip. Try the dispenser to see if it's just drips after use.

I decided maybe we were fixated on the ice maker because it's the obvious culprit/source of water input. However, thought more broadly and then fixated on the frost-free aspect and the drip pan. In case ice was building up and defrosting within the refrigerator back, even though the pan was bone dry, I removed 1/3 of the freezer contents to another freezer to maximize air circulation in the freezer compartment. At the 24-hr mark, after this change, there was an approximate 2 tablespoon drip downstairs so I don't consider the problem fixed necessarily. The next 24-hour period is late this afternoon. However, I still empty the ice cube bin so it will never stop making ice in case it is the pressure of the water in the line which, when no ice is made because the bin is full, it leaks where the line comes into the back of the fridge, but out of sight, until it pools on the floor enough to run through to the floor below, downstairs.

Thank you for contacting me. I'm telling others about your site.
