Question about Westinghouse Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a Westinghouse RJ215M (about 13 years old) and it has started to leak water into the middle shelf of the fridge. When I put a towel down to mop up the water, it often gets partly frozen. Both the fridge and freezer are on "normal" temp control. Any suggestions to fix it?

Have replaced the 3part inlet water valve for our fridge freezer. Water is working fine,but still not making ice.


Check the ice bin level arm (also the ice maker on/off switch) is in the down position. It senses when the ice bin is full and turns off the ice maker until some ice in the bin gets used. It can also be lifted into the up position to turn the ice maker off.

My fridge is leaking water from the top shelf down to the bottom and onto the floor


You most likely have a clogged defrost drain tube in the freezer, this diverts water through the damper into the fridge section in units with the freezer on top... Remove the back wall of the freezer and look beneath the tubing and you will see an ice pad... Use a turkey baster and warm water to reveal the drain hole, then force warm water down it until it is clear... Have some towels handy. Whirlpool Refrigerator Drain Strap 819043

I have exactly the same problem with my Westinghouse side by side! And it only happens when it's hot in the house. Would love to hear what's wrong. And the fridge is 5 years old. Bought new.

Fridge is dripping directly onto top shelf. It is


Hello, this sounds like you have a blockage in the drain tube, remove panel back/bottom of freezer..you may see ice build up...melt ice with hair dryer/heat gun...you will see a pan below evaporator...melt ice in pan...dry water up in pan with paper towel...now you should see a hole in pan that leads to drain tube...pour some hot water in pan..wait a couple minutes..mop up water and repeat this step 2-3 times....once you have done this find some flexible curtain wire or electrical wire..poke down the hole until you see the water drain..now it is clear..put back panel back and you are good to go. The reason you see water in the fridge is because the water has been leaking into the freezer and down the vent into the fridge instead of running into the drain hole...Please feel free to comment again if you have any other question.
