Sounds like the drain hole on the bottom of the freezer is plugged. When that gets plugged normal condensation has no where to run off to and thus collects on the shelf itself. You might want to defrost the freezer completely and then take a little cup of water and pour it into the drain hole and make sure it cleared. Make sure nothing else is blocking the hole too but it starts with a defrost. Should fix you up.

Water leaking on freezer shelves no water in ice maker


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that the ice maker in your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRS26H5AS, is not making ice and is leaking water onto your freezer shelves. Please make sure that your freezer is cold enough. Your freezer should be set at a temperature of 0 degrees F. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Water falling from the ice maker to the freezer compartment


No, water pressure should not cause such a leak ,you possibly have a defective water solenoid ,if you trace the water inlet to your refridgerator you should encounter the solenoid which is a electrically operated valve , with power off you can disconnect the output side if there is a flow of water with no power to the fridge the solenoid is defective ,try to service the unit because any build up or foreign body can stick the plunger . If you can apply a 110v to the wires you should hear a click when energised.
If your solenoid is good the water sense timer is defective and keeping the valve open. Hope I helped

Ice maker is splashing water all over back of freezer and it builds up til the fan starts to make noise if I turn it off and defrost the ice it will start up noise free til the ice builds again.


What is the model number of your unit? When the ice builds up, does the ice just build up where it is splashing or is the ice also building up behind the back wall of the freezer?

Thank you! Richard

Water on floor of refrigerator and icemaker not working


You need to make sure the fill tube is not freezing over and causing the water to go everywhere but the ice maker. And again the ice maker may be a different problem. I have a link for you to go to and look over leaking freezers and refrigerators. But lets first make sure the water is coming from the ice maker or the defrost drain is blocked, Sea Breeze

Smelly Ice and water leaking into top shelf


Does water in door dispenser taste bad? If not, Try arm and hammer fridge deoderizer. It will help to absorb fridge odors which may be clinging to water molecules in ice maker tray. Ice maker tray is open to freezer area.Water is very medium to infiltrate with odors. Try this first

Water is leaking out of ice maker and freezing up where cubes are


Sounds like water valve is not closing all the way after the icemaker calls for water. This is because sediment in water builds up on valve seat therefore letting water pass through. Suggest replacing fill valve. Crescent shaped ice....ice maker on needs 4 ounces to fill icemaker, so any more than that will spill out.
