Water leaking from dispenser into refigerator/French door bottom freezer

When we use the water dispenser located on the outside of the left refrigerator door, it is leaking into the right side under the produce door. We noticed it when it started to drip and part of it was frozen. We unplugged the frig, let it totally defrost, thinking maybe the dispenser was frozen in the door. After we replugged it 24 hrs. later, it still is leaking. Unlike all the reviews I have read, I love this refrigerator,. but would like to remedy the situation myself. Could it be the tubes in the back? Where is the water coming from? I did change the filter recently. Could that have anything to do with it?

    We have the same question. We still haven't fixed it yet.
    We did try to make sure all the little tubes were pushed in wherever they are attached. If you don't use the water, it doesn't leak or freeze. What fun is that?
    Let me know if you resolve this.

    i DICOVERED THE SAME PROBLEM WITH MY fRIDGE AS WELL. The Leak is coming from the water tank located behind the vegetable bin. I removed the Blue small clams, unscrewed the tank. Pluged one end and blew air into the tank and it seem the end closest to the side of the fridge has a leak when I did a pressure test on the tank. I ordered a new tank from Sears $49.99 to fix the problem It seemm that the pipe was glued & compressed into the hole and the pressure has caused it to leak. I love my Fridge but since I have had it I have experienced notthing but head aches. Fortunaley LG has refunded my money for what I apid for it & allowd me to keep the fridge as they had no way to dispose of it. My GE is problem free so far, but I still prefer the look of the LG/

I have the same problem. I noticed that the holding tank is full of water and ice. Is this normal. Also any idea how to remove the "L" shaped connectors from the holding tank? There is a blue "U" shaped clip that I removed but do you just pull the connector from the hose after that?

Why would ice from the front door have an off taste but the ice in tray in the bottom freezer tastes fine?

I don't see from the literature that this model dispense ICE from the "front door." The dispenser on the left door seems only to dispense water. In your configuration the water comes through a completely closed system until it reaches your glass and should therefore not have an order or taste different from that of your cubes in the bottom Freezer.

My Amana french door/bottom freezer is leaking water. Did the procedure with hot water the drain in back of the freezer, although it seemed clear of ice. That didn't help. The leaking stops when I...

Two possibilities:
1. A cracked plastic tube. These will leak whenever there's a call for water - either the chilled water dispenser, or re-filling the icemaker tray (two seperate tubes). Pay particular attention to anywhere the tubes are clamped to the chassis; anywhere they're routed near or under the refrigeration unit; and near the solenoid valve - especially if there's a tight loop in the tube there.
2. A bad (leaking) connection where one of the tubes exits the water valve. Again, these will leak whenever the valve is activated.

Those plastic tubes don't last forever. I've replaced many of them for the same symptoms. They're known to simply deteriorate with age.
Manuf's make good money selling replacement tubing kits.

Remove Faceplate on fridge

I am have the very same problem. I removed the dish beneath the water/ice dispenser, and located two small screws. These two screws appear to hold the bottom of the face plate to the door. I removed them. However, the faceplate still did not come loose. I suspect there are more screws or clips toward the top.

Refigerator is freezing food

Hi, this problem is going to be with the running thermostat. It has gone bad and stays open which in turn will keep the compressor running continually. It can normally be located in the control panel inside the fridge. Locate the thermostat and replace it. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Good Luck!!
