The coil of tubing in the bottom of the fresh food section is the water tank that stores the chilled water. Do not removeit, it is supposed to be there.

I have water dripping down the back panel inside the fridge-it is constant. I wipe down the inside back wall, but hours later the water is back. The fridge appears to have a "channel" for this water


with out knowing name brand an model# i would say it sounds like there is a drain tube missing from the upper patr or freezwr area to the drain hole at the rear bottom . there is a drain pan under the refridge which catches this water then it evarperates. it also cab that the proper drain is pluged or blocked with algie which is comon try a little bleach to clean out the drain area

Tip

Find your only getting Luke warm water @ your faucets??


.

This is a common fault with new to used installed waterheater.

It is call a diptube ,made of pvc in part description. It is located on cold inlet,top of waterheater.

Malfunction of dip tube is usually a fracture caused by age mostly,or faulty install when new and tube was exposed to high heat from welding .

This tube allows the cold water supply to flow into W/heater and exit at bottom where it is heated while pushing already heated water to hot side and to your faucet. If this tube is defective ei...cracked the cold will [leak] mix with the hot before reaching bottom to be heat..thus lukewarm water syndrome. Solution $8 part H/depot>remove coldside copper fittings and pull white pvc out,about 4feet long,less rotted area, install new 3/4 inch pvc dip tube with flange up.

The cold control needs replacing. Thats the knob with the numbers that turn the Ref OFF and ON.
What I do is call my local Appliance Parts Store with my model no. They are extremely helpful .
Get freezer and ref thermometer. Ref is probably too cold.
Freezer should be 0 to 10 degrees. Ref 33 to 35

WATER SPLASHING IN FREEZER AT ICEMAKER
THE FILL TUBE IN BACK OF REFRIGERATOR CAN SLIP
AGAINST THE FILL RESERVOIR CAUSING A PARTIAL BLOCKAGE
OR BECOME CLOGGED WITH ICE.
REMOVE THE ICEMAKER AND INSPECT THE FILL TUBE.
RUN WATER IN TUBE TO ELININATE BLOCKAGE AND CHECK
TEMP IN FREEZER. IF TEMP IS BELOW 0 DEGREES, THATS
OVERKILL AND USUALLY A WASTE OF ELECTRICITY TO KEEP IT THAT COLD, NOT TO MENTION THE FILL TUBE FREEZING UP

My refrigerator shows an ice make but i can not find the connections to it


THE CONNECTIONS ARE BEHIND THE UNIT TURN IT AROUND AND YOU CAN SEE THE WATER HOSE CONNECTORS, YOU HAVE TO DO SOME WATER INSTALATION FROM AWATER SUPPLY THE MOST COMMON IS THE ONE BY THE KITCHEN/SINK. WHAT YOU NEED IS: A SET OF A COPER TUBE INCLUDE ONE SMALL REFRIDG WATER VALVE. MAKE SURE YOU LET ALL THE AIR OUT FROM THE WATER LINE BY KEEP THE WATER RUN THROUGH THE LINE FOR ABOUT 1 OR 2 MUNITS. AND PUTT EVERYTHING BACK TOGETHER

I have an older Frigidare and would like to hook up the icemaker. In the back bottom left side I THINK is where I would insert my water line but the line is so much smaller then the blue plug area. does...


The water supply line is a small 1/4" tubing (soft copper or milky-white plastic) and uses a compression fitting. That is normal. You can go to most any hardware store and get a kit for connecting the icemaker. The kit has the tubing with fittings, and a piercing saddle valve you install on a COLD water line to supply cold water to the unit. If plumbing is not your strong point, please seek help. Although it is pretty straight forward, it can be a little tricky.

GE Refridge #tbx21jablraa Water collecting in


The defrost drain tube is plugged. Move the refrig out from the wall and remove the tube which goes from the center middle of the back to the bottom part of the refrig. Clean out the tube and check the part that goes into the refrig. That part usually comes off with a quarter turn or so, then pull.

Water driping on top shelfe from freezer,


The drain most likely was blocked by food debris and the water from defrost cycle had no where to go...unplug refridge...chip some of the ice along the bottom carefully or use heat gun to melt ice...when the tube becomes exposed put some hot water in the drip pan..this should help the ice melt in the drain tube....use a straw or curtain wire to clear blockage...you should see the water suddenly drain down tube...put everything back together...this is not a temp issue but more a blockage issue.

I have a sub zero 611 and water is accumulating behind the vegetable drawer in the channel that is there.Where does it come from and how do I make it go away


sounds like you have a blocked drain tube....when defrost system kicks in the melted water runs down a tube into a tray adjacent to the compressor and is evaporated by the heat. when the tube becomes blocked the water has nowhere else to go except overflowing and out through the refridge vent down the back and onto the floor of the refridge.

If you are hand with tools i can explain a procedure to fix this problem, If not call a service guy :)

Frigidaire side by side: water fills up in bottom of freezer


You have a blockage in your drain tube, at the bottom of the metal tray there is a hole which is connected to a tube which runs down the back of your refridge to a pan next to the compressor. It is an easy fix have done this 1000's times. Remove back panel in freezer, grab a heat gun or hair dryer and melt the ice it the bottom of tray. Clean the water in the tray with some paper towel next get some hot water in a measuring jug and pour into the pan(hot water will help melt ice in tube) repeat this process a couple of times and then get a curtain wire or something flexible to push down the pipe to clean the blockage...you will know when the blockage is clear because the water in the pan will suddenly drain off....put cover back on...make sure to unplug appliance before servicing...hope this helps :)
