Frigidair Frig PHSC39EJSS. Ice is forming on freezer floor. I have already shut off the water supply for several days to see if it was coming from the ice maker and it still iced over. Also we ocassionally hear a ticking noise like the fan blades are hitting something inside th housing. However the fan does run. Are these related and whats the prob? Thanks.

Your condensate drain line is stopped up. Break the ice up off the freezer floor with a screwdriver handle. Turn off the refrigerator. Remove the back inside panel from the freezer. Break up the ice in the drip pan with a plastic handle. you can either heat up a wire with a torch and stick it in the drain to thaw the ice in the drain or set a hair dyer in the freezer until the ice melts in the drain. Then find a 4' piece of 3/8" tubing to stick in the drain and blow in the other end to remove any trash in the drain. you can use compressed air or weed eater line. anything that will clear the drain

Water is not coming out of the dispenser. Frig is


Good day,
4 hours is no ware enough time. As well, turning the freezer to a warmer temperature does little, since you're only changing it by a few degrees.
Forcing anything thru that tube, if it's ice can result in a difficult and expensive repair.
No body likes this, but shutting the machine off (unplugged), leaving the freezer door open with a floor fan blowing on the inside of the door is safe, but inconvenient.

your refrig. goes through a periodic defrost cycle whereby this water is produced. It is supposed to travel down to the evaporation pan near the floor of the frig. Your evaportation pan may be clogged, remove the front lower panel and get a flashlight and examine it., or the tube leading from the freezer floor may be clogged or have ice it it. Check that out and if the opening of the tube has ice in it, melt it with a hair blow dryer

Water on floor under unit & ice bottom of freezer


By going online, saw several posts re this problem. In short, the water drain was clogged and there was also a problem with the defrost timer. Service man blew out the drain line with compressed air and installed a new timer. Voila! Problem fixed. Interestingly, the serviceman found a wad of what looked like putty, but was sticky like gum in the drain area. He said he had never encountered anything similar.

Ice maker is making ice but leaking alot of water under the fridge and in the freezer. What can I do to shut if off until I repair the ice maker?


pull our your frig. and follow the water line coming into it. the other end should have a valve on it in the floor or the wall. turn off the valve and that will stop any water from coming to your frig for water or ice making.

Kenmore frig ice machine doesn't make cube ice


Normally, the ice "cubes" are crescent shaped. The most likely cause for "crushed" ice is that the ice maker isn't getting enough water on its refill cycle after ejecting the tray. Becuase there isn't enough water, the ice looks crushed...it's actually shattered.

Check the water inlet and chute to the ice maker. Sometimes they freeze and have to be manually defrosted. A hair dryer will do the trick. Also check the water chute and be sure it isn't partially frozen.

Start there...if no luck you could also have a failing water filter or sticky water solenoid valve.

Ice forming on freezer


The drain is plugged. This fridge will defrost every 8 hrs or so. When it does , it will melt the frost that has built up on the evaporator. This melted frost will run down a drain under the evaporator to a drain in the bottom directly under the evaporator. When the drain gets plugged the water cannot drain out of the freezer compartment. After several defrost cycles the melted frost will overflow onto the freezer floor. When the fridge starts back up it will freez this water is the bottom of the fridge. sometimes this water that is now ice will melt on the next defrost cycle and actually run out into the floor. You will have to unplug the fridge or turn it off, then remove the cover to the evaporator. Get a hair dryer and melt the ice aruond the evaporator and drain. Once the ice is removed, check the drain and try to clear it. Once clear, replace everything but the shelves. Plug the fridge back in or turn it back on. Observe and listen for the evaporator fan. It should be running now. When working on the ice on the evaporator always be carefull. The defrost heater can be damaged if up push or pull on it too much.
