Question about Jenn-Air JBL2086HES Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

2 Answers

Fridge is leaking water .... there's a place in the back of the fridge at the bottom (where the water line comes in from the in fridge filter and then goes to the icemaker).... there's two electrical connectors (?) attached to two short fat round things(?) .... the water is leaking from the top of one of these things ... I'm guessing it's going to have to be replaced?

I have a Whirlpool fridge that needs a new water filter. Twice now, when I remove the filter to change it, water gushes out even though the ice maker is OFF. I quickly turn off the water line and mop


The Whirlpool fridge requires a water supply connection to a cold water line. Before you connect the water supply to the water line on the fridge, make certain the unit is unplugged from the wall. Press the button and drop down the cover. Then twist to release the old filter and twist the new one into the filter head. Run about 2 gallons of water through dispenser to remove any air from the lines. Liquid EPDM Rubber Roof Coatings for Roof Leaks Repair EPDMCoatings

I am wondering about the hose you shoved in and the leak stopped. Is the hose you pushed in buckled where it hooks on or is there a buckled spot where the water comes out of the fridge. Just a guess.

Two possibilities:
1. A cracked plastic tube. These will leak whenever there's a call for water - either the chilled water dispenser, or re-filling the icemaker tray (two seperate tubes). Pay particular attention to anywhere the tubes are clamped to the chassis; anywhere they're routed near or under the refrigeration unit; and near the solenoid valve - especially if there's a tight loop in the tube there.
2. A bad (leaking) connection where one of the tubes exits the water valve. Again, these will leak whenever the valve is activated.

Those plastic tubes don't last forever. I've replaced many of them for the same symptoms. They're known to simply deteriorate with age.
Manuf's make good money selling replacement tubing kits.

Water come's out to slow? changed filter! was doing it before i changed filter!


James -

Check to make sure the valve for the water supply is on fully - and not between the ON and OFF positions. If that is ok, the water supply line may have become restricted when the fridge was pushed into position the last time it was rolled out (for cleaning, etc.). The line may have become kinked (usually a copper line problem) or partially crushed (copper or plastic) under one of the fridge's rollers.

You should close the water valve before moving the fridge for inspection. Unplug the fridge. Disconnect the water line at the back of the fridge. Inspect the length of line for evidence of a crush or kink. Replace as needed. Test the flow of water into a larger container before reconnecting to fridge. If close to the fridge output, the valve and line to the fridge is suspect. Replace parts one at a time as needed until the problem is solved. If there is significantly more flow than when connected to the fridge, then the problem is somewhere in the fridge - but outside of the filter - there's little to change or go wrong for a "slow flow rate". It's usually an "all or nothing" deal inside the fridge.

Reassemble, turn water supply back on (check for leaks), plug into power, carefully roll fridge into position (watch the water line as long as possible to prevent crushing / kinking) and test.

Please rate this reply if helpful - good luck!

Water leaks from dispenser


Bad water filter or weak water inlet solenoid. Water line to back of fridge goes to inlet solenoid valve. Check it first. Would help to know the manufacture date. If it has a filter at bottom of fridge it will cause leaks and low pressure to dispenser if not changed each year.

Leak from bottom of fridge


Two things might be happening. One is the line to the fridge is leaking, this line come thru the floor or wall to the bottom and hooks up to a water valve, it may just need tightening. The other problem is you will have a hose that runs from the filter down in behind the crisper drawers to the bottom and coils up here to hold water for cold use. it then runs thru the bottom pan out to the front, to the bottom door hinge on the freezer side up the door to the dispencer. Check along the hose for a pin hole look at the bottom hinge area first, things bump into it here and can damage the plastic cover.

Buk, there's supposed to be a drain pan under your fridge to catch the water that comes from the drain tube. The water that's coming out is supposed to be there (only, it's supposed to be caught by the drain pan)... it's the water that's made when your fridge defrosts itself. If you plug the tube, the water will back up inside the fridge , puddle up in the bottom and eventually leak out through the door.

You should order a drain pan for it. Here's a link to one online. After you have it in place, you won't have to worry about it anymore. The water that collects there will simply evaporate back into the air.
