SOURCE: ice maker not making ice. Water disp inside frig disp water.

the line that gives water to the ice maker, every time the water comes down it lives a drip of water that turns to ice blocking the line, get some hot water and a towel and place the hot wet towel on top of the line intel it melts the ice in side the line. it happens to my frige at list once a year. if that is not the problem the valve that supplies water tho the ice maker needs replacing, it's behind the frige at the bottom, where the line coming from the house meets the frige.

SOURCE: GE Freezer Leaking

Open the freezer door, remove the bottom tray, smash the ice on the floor with your fist to remove it. Now get a glass of hot water and pour it into the trough which is at the bottom of the back wall of the freezer. Allow a few minutes for the ice to melt then remove it with an ice pick or scrrewdriver. Once the ice is out, pour more hot water into the trough. Now take a long tube ( an old washer fill hose works perfectly) and stick one end in the hole in the trough. Now fill your mouth with warm water and blow it very hard through the tube. Once the drain is clear, pour some hot water and a very little amount of bleach through the hole.

SOURCE: Water leaking from freezer

Check for a blocked defrost drain. Take the panel off at the back of the freezer section and find the small hole at the very bottom center below the cooling coils. Use hot (but not boiling) water and a turkey baster to flush it out until water runs through it. (it will go into the defrost drain pan, where it will evaporate)
This will prevent water from comming out the freezer door and leaking onto your floor and running down your copper pipe to the basement.

Water leaking from under the freezer


Until defrosting the block of ice you canot see if is a hole or crack in the bottom. But I suppose is leaking from the door gasket under the pressure of the ice inside. Anyway, if you want to keep alife your refrigerator, better unplug it, defrosting and clean it before complete annihilation.

Water is leaking out from the bottom of the freezer


Below the freezer coil is a drain trough. Sounds like it is frozen. Use a hair drier to melt it and poor baking soda with warm water down it.

Water leaking inside freezer and refrigerator.


you have a clogged drain tube in the freezer compartment. it is frozen with ice and as the unit goes in to a defrost cycle the water has no place to go. you can fix it the easy way, just unplug the unit and let it defrost. this will take care of your issue.

Freezer door won't slide open


A tightly frozen door could take days to unfreeze inside. Try using a hair dryer around the door seal. It will take awhile to unfreeze the door this way but it is quicker than waiting for it to defrost. You may have had an extreme leak. Turn the water off to the freezer and turn the freezer controls off or set to zero. You are in a pickle! This is not going to be a quick fix.

We were able to fix the freezer water leak. We unscrewed the false freezer floor and the inside back panel. Ice had accumulated on the freezer floor and the defrosting drain was frozen. We removed the ice by using a blow dryer then poured boiling hot water onto the frozen drain hole. The frozen water in the drain pipe hole eventually melted and the water released into the defrosting drip pan at the bottom of the refrigerator. Problem solved. We no longer have water leaking into the refrigerator.
