The red light should flash, the most likely suspect is that the inlet
tube that carries the water to the ice maker is frozen. If you open the
freezer door and hold the swinging door in front of the ice maker up you
will see a black rubber tube coming down from the top. If it feels hard
it may have an ice block in it.
The best way to clear the block is to turn off the refrigerator or
unplug it, warm up the tube with a hair dryer or for quicker unthawing
take a turkey baster and squirt hot water into the tube catching the run
off with a towel.
It can take quite some time and several cups of hot water to finally
clear the ice. Once done it will take about 2 hours for the ice maker to
cool back down and start a cycle to test it.
Good day. Water can only come from one place, where the frost is melted off the coil in the freezer during it's normal defrost cycles that occur daily. Two styles. One style allows this condensed water to run down the back wall of the inside of the refrigerator, under the crispers and thru a hole in the bottom of the cabinet into a drain pan positioned under the hole. Possible missing pan, not positioned properly, or crack in the drain pan itself. The other style drains the water to a hose mounted on the back of the machine, down and then into the pan. Possible hose blocked, not connected properly, or the other items as described in first style. It's a look-see type of repair.
Gee, I hope you didn't throw this one away. The cooling settings between the two sides are out of balance, or something is blocking the airflow between the freezer and the refrigerator. Make sure the ducts that blow air are not blocked, set both sides on a medium setting, and give it some time (12-24 hours) to equilibrate. Also make sure the fans are running and the coils are free of dust. I have to clear the coils of my current refrigerator once a week from accumulated cat toys. Generally the cat alerts me long before the fridge does.
I have the same problem. It turned out to be a problem with the doors. When my kids go to get a snack and close the fridge door (read slam the door) the air pressure pops the seal open on the freezer door causing the ice cubes to begin melting. The bottom items stay frozen (warm air rises). It took me a long time to work this out. Remove the ice maker tray. Remove the ice blob, being careful to put the u-shaped wire ice-level sensing wire thing, in the up position or the system will dump ice and water all over the freezer. Put all back clean and dry and buy a velcro adhesive strip and install it on top of the freezer door to prevent the door from always blowing open. Hope this helps
Behind the panel in the freezer there is a drain hole that is underneath the evaporator. It is frozen over. Take the back panel off and get all of the ice out and run hot water down the drain until it is clear. When the unit goes into defrost some of that ice melts and drips down thru the vent into the fridge section.
