Serial # k15004707 model # mf12665xew3 french doors ice maker in upper left corner. After the ice maker fills with water it drips off the front side.


Refrigerator Leaking From Icemaker
If it's leaking from inside the freezer then it's coming from the icemaker or the drain. Lets start with the icemaker. If it's the icemaker there will likely be an ice hanging from the icemaker or just a big block of ice in the ice bin. In any case, it will be obvious.
There are a few reasons this will happen: one is the icemaker will stop turning when it gets to the fill cycle. This will happen when the gears in the icemaker break. On GE icemakers that were made before the year 2000, you can see the gears by taking off the cover on the front of the icemaker. However, if the small gear is broke you can't buy it as far as I know. I have been taking them off of junk icemakers for years. So this part may be hard to find. But if the big gear is broke replace it. Another reason icemakers leak is the fill tube is stopped up and I already discussed this earlier (replace water valve and clean out tube).
Another reason icemakers leak is that the water comes in too fast so it over fills the first cube mold. When this happens you will get a few drops of water when it fills. To fix this you have to take the icemaker out and remove the piece on the side of the icemaker. I don't know the name of it so for this we'll call it cube separator because that's what it does (most of them just snap off others have a screws). Now take silicone (RTV) and put a small amount around the first cube mold only under the cube separator. Now reinstall the cube separator and wipe off excess silicone and it shouldn't leak anymore.
Another reason that icemakers leak is that the refrigerator water valve sticks after the icemaker goes out of the fill cycle. When this happens the valve stays on and the icemaker keeps on turning, in which case, replace the refrigerator water valve.

How can i turn off the water function on the door but not the ice, the water line keeps leaking on the back of the frig


When I had this problem the water was coming from the top right rear where the water tube feeds the ice maker. The water line INSIDE the frig that feeds the ice maker occasionally freezes up causing an obstruction which causes the water to leak out the rear. This can only happen when the icemaker activates the water feed. You can remove the tube fitting without fear because the valve that feeds water through the line is at the bottom rear of the unit. If the line is frozen inside I remove the ice bin and tray and use a hair dryer to melt the ice.
I have a similar problem with the condenser fan making a tapping/clacking noise which is also a result of ice building up on that. Wish I had a different frig but for now the hair dryer will have to do.

My icemaker stopped working and it's leaking inside.what could be the problem?


check the fill tube to the ice maker and make sure it is not froze up or obstructed...when the ice maker calls for water there is a tube that comes into the ice maker and often will have residual water that can eventually freeze and make a mess the next cycle and so forth... also make sure the ice maker it self has not developed a hole in it...this is metal and water we are dealing with very possible to happen over time and start leaking through front control etc......good luck to you hope you get it fixed........please vote....

Water leaking from fridge


Generally, this problem can be solved by replacing the water filter. The water filters have o-rings that self seal when installed. If you keep the same water filter to long those seals will start to leak. Fortunately for us, the water filter housing is right over the drip pan, and when it leaks it conveniently goes there.

To make sure take off the toe panel to the frig. If you have problems taking the toe panel off don't worry, they need to be yanked. Start on on side and really give it a tug. Once you get that off you will see how it clips in and you can remove the other side with ease.

Now, if it is not leaking currently, have someone get water from the dispenser while you are on the ground watching. You will be looking at the filter mind you, underneath the frig. You should be able to see it dripping right into the pan.

Now of course you could have another leak, but that is most likely what has happened. Passed that, you will have to see the leak to know what is leaking. You can get water from the dispenser, but if that doesn't work you will need to wait for the ice maker to make some ice. Then you can see if that is the problem.

To simply cut off the water supply to the ice maker you would just need to turn the ice maker to the off position. Then it would no longer ask for water :)

If you need anything else let me know! good luck!

you have to determine if its the icemaker mold that has a crack and therefore leaks, or if you water valve solenoid is not closing compeletly at the end of the cycle. to check this, turn the water supply off to the refrigerator, then lift the arm up to turn the icemaker off. wait 3-6 hours, in case it JUST cycled, turn the icemaker back on, and it should dump one last set of ice cubes. slowly pour 4-8 oz of water into the icemaker with a measuring cup. do you see that same drip? if you do, replace your icemaker, if you dont, replace your water valve.

Mod: 10651262103, icemaker leaking, not making ice


We need to know if the ice maker overflowed or if there is a crack. Sometimes the water gets frozen in the fill tube and diverts the water everywhere other that ice maker. Rare but sometimes something causes the water control valve to stick open on rear of refrigerator. Your ice maker has a thermostat inside it and starts a cycle when the thermostat says the water has frozen. That starts a cycle of about six thing to happen.The defrost element below ice maker warms the bottom just enough to loosen the ice. Micro switches feel and sense the position and as it nears ending the final step the ice maker tells the water control valve to open for a few seconds. An adjustment in that control may stop over flow. But if cracked in a major section it will need to be replaced. Let me know if this helps you. Sea Breeze

Leaking water on floor only happens when making ice


I wonder if you just notice the noise now because the leak has you more aware? First things first. Lift up the arm on the ice maker (a few hours prior to attempting service) to stop it's operation. You need to roll the unit forward to give you access to the back. You'll see a plastic tube that runs from the bottom compartment (water valve) to the ice maker fill tube. Lower the arm of the ice maker and observe the plastic tube for the location of the leak. The most likely spot would be at the top. A hose clamp can be put on the fill tube after making sure the plastic supply tube is completely inserted into the fill tube. The fill tube is the piece that goes through the rear bulkhead and delivers the water to the icemaker. It may be neccessary to remove the icemaker to thaw out the fill tube using a hair dryer.

Yes, the short tube that goes from the back of the refrigerator to the icemaker can freeze up solid preventing any more water to pass thru. this is caused by a bad water valve that is slowly leaking water to the icemaker.
