SOURCE: refrigerator side freezing

kjn, I think what happened here is that the automatic damper assy. is stuck in the open position. This is why everything froze in the refer area. This includes the water filter and cartridge. I would unscrew the filter cover and see if it's frozen in there. If you find the filter frozen, take a hair dryer and go over it lightly until it will unscrew. After that you will have to check to see if the damper is stuck. You should be able to hear it open and close by turning the control on and off. Or get a mirror and hold it at an angle in back to see the gates. Part number for the damper motor is 240440701. Not that hard of a job...Catriver.

take all the bottom shelves and baskets out of the freezer. look at the back wall of the freezer. youll see a block of ice in a metal pan looking part at the bottom of the rear panel. there is a hole in the bottom of that pan. thats the defrost drain. its clogged. use a hair dryer to get all the ice out then use hot water to flush out the drain hole.

SOURCE: Ice Maker water keeps running

Bad I/M, won't shut off after harvest and continues to restart cycle. Heater in I/M should warm up thermostat after first harvest and stop unit from recycling.

SOURCE: Water Freezing in bottom of Freezer and dripping out front of freezer door

this could either be a blocked drain from the freezer not allowing defrost water to escape or the defrost heater failing to turn on due to a faulty defrost heater or defrost timer not enabling the water to escape

SOURCE: Water leaking from freezer door and ice maker not gettin water

Check the fill tube for the ice maker and make sure it is in the correct place. This sounds like the fill tube has been moved and is running water into the freezer instead of the ice maker. Let me know what you find. I am here to help you.

Pooling water in drawers and selfs.


This is likely a condensate drainage issue. When warm air enters the refrigerated space it contains moisture. Warm air is able to hold more moisture than cold air, so as the air cools the moisture condenses (hence the term condensate.)

Every refrigerator needs a way for this condensate to drain out of the cabinet. Many have a drain hole on the bottom, but some have a cup on the back (inside) of the cabinet that funnels the condensate to a drain behind it. I'm guessing yours is the latter.

Over time these drains have an annoying habit of becoming plugged with algae and/or spilled food/drink. When this happens water accumulates in the cabinet.

What you need to do is find the drain and clear it. The best tool for the job is a 4' piece of 1/8" steel cable (aka, wire rope) with a fitting crimped onto the end, or a dab of JB Weld, to keep it from unraveling and to keep loose strands from snagging. Gently snake the cable down the drain several times and rinse with a mild bleach solution, or chlorine-based cleaner.

Note that if a lot of water has accumulated the drip pan under the refrigerator may not hold it all, in which case it will spill onto the floor. This is not a problem, as in normal operation that amount of water would not be allowed to accumulate.

Whirlpool refrigerator EL7ATRRMS08 Drip Tube Clogged


Best bet on that is to remove the evaporator cover and pour very hot water down the drain. Should be eight screws. Removing the drain tube should not be necessary to repair your issue.

Water is forming on the floor. Appears the water is pooling under the crisper drawer, then seeps through the seal. GE TBX 18CI. Any ideas?


You should not have any water at all forming inside the frig compartment unless you have a water dispenser on the frig. The water resevoir is located in the frig compartment at the bottom behind crisper. There may be a small leak or loose water connection on it. Hope this helps.

We were able to fix the freezer water leak. We unscrewed the false freezer floor and the inside back panel. Ice had accumulated on the freezer floor and the defrosting drain was frozen. We removed the ice by using a blow dryer then poured boiling hot water onto the frozen drain hole. The frozen water in the drain pipe hole eventually melted and the water released into the defrosting drip pan at the bottom of the refrigerator. Problem solved. We no longer have water leaking into the refrigerator.
