I can see water from the fill line going into the ice maker. The water just pours into the icemaker and then instantly into the freeezer to the floor. What causes this?

Are you sure it is your icemaker? We had a problem with ice forming on the bottom of our freezer and finally figured out it was too much stuff in our freezer compartment. When we cleaned out most of the frozen goods it has not leaked again. Just a thought!

It sounds like the fill valve is no longer functioning. They are easy to replace though. Find the part number for your refrigerator and order one. To replace, unplug the unit and turn off the water supply. Take the rear cover off of the refrigerator and locate the valve(See where the water supply line enters).

Disconnect the water lines and the electrical harness. Remove the screw which holds the fill valve and discard. Install new valve and reconnect the wire harness and waterlines. Test the new valve and you should be in business.

It appears the water inlet is putting to much water into the ice tray of my ice maker and I am getting large chucks of ice. The auger is also freezing up as it appears water is dripping into the tray and the auger is completely coated in ice at the back where the turning arm is located.

Some of the ice cubes are staying in the tray rather trhan dumping into the bin. When valve opens to refill tray some of the water spills over into the icebin and freezes into a mass around the auger.

My kitchen got flooded. What can cause the ice maker to leak that kind of water?

My refrigerator has a bottom freezer with an ice maker. This is the second time we have had water in the bottom of the freezer. The first time water ran all over the floor. The repair man put in a new timer and the repair was $300. It has happened again. We shut off the ice maker. Would it be cheaper to replace the ice maker or have another part to fix. I don't dare to go away and have the house flooded.

When did you do the original $300 repair? Call them back and complain that they did not fix the problem.

If it was recent you may be under warranty.

I agree with OliveOyl. To take it one step further have the person who did the warranty work return and this time completely remove the ice maker and disconnect it so you no longer have it leaking on your kitchen floor. Make your own ice cubes by using the ice cube trays.

I have a Frigidaire SXS refrigerator (FGH2655PF5A) that leaks water from behind the ice maker, which then runs down the back of the freezer compartment and eventually freezes near the freezer fan and obstructs the fan. I have had the ice maker serviced twice and replaced once, but still no fix.

Ad

It is now out of warranty and Frigidaire is no help. Any ideas on how to determine where the water is coming from and how to correct the problem would be appreciated.

I have a 13 year old GE top freezer over fridge. I have water coming out of the top hinge holes which is on the side of the ice maker and the ice maker is no longer filling and I can't figure out how to get in there to see what is happening.

The ice maker in my side-by-side does make ice. The problem is I am getting water in my bin, it is then freezing in my bin making a clump and then it won't dispense the ice. I have ice in the bottom of refrigerator. We've replaced the water valve in the back of the refrigerator; so what now?

is it coming from the valve or I wonder if the water hose has a split in it somewhere?

My side by side Frigidaire refrigerator is 12 years old and has recently started to leak water. When the water dispenser is used for a couple of minutes, water starts to leak and drip from the ice maker into the ice tray/freezer. The ice maker makes ice as normal and only leaks when the water dispenser is used.

Ad

I tried replacing the ice maker, but that didn't fix the issue. Any other suggestions? Does this sound like a water inlet valve issue or not really since the ice cubes are normal size, are made at a normal rate, etc., and the issue only occurs in relation to extended use of the water dispenser?

I would like to understand all of the things it could be in order to determine if it's worth exploring/troubleshooting further or better to just replace the entire fridge at this time, given it's getting up there in age.

I'm hesitant to replace the water valve unless the consensus is that it will resolve the issue. Reason being is the tube connections on the latest valve model are different than those of the original, and so tube modifications would be required.

Disclaimers: I plan on moving within the next 3-4 years. I'm not super handy, but can follow directions well. (I had no problem removing, sourcing the part, replacing the ice maker.) I have no experience working with water lines or the innards of appliances. I do have experience with computer/technology repairs.

Thanks in advance for the assistance!

When it calls for ice in the ice maker, water comes out of the plastic tube into the drain pan and eventually overflows. It is a Whirlpool mod#ET1MTKXKQ03. The drain hose is at the rear bottom of the fridge.

A very easy online search for the "Whirlpool" site will take you to the manufacturer's "contact us" website. You can ask questions via email or call directly. The answering rep may be able to clarify your problem and suggest fridge repair services in your area.

Our ice maker was overfilling the tray and creating a mess in the freezer on our side by side GE. Since we rarely use ice I just unplugged the ice maker unit and removed it from our freezer. I left the water line open because we do use the filtered cold water to drink.

My question is, is this OK? My concern is will the water tube in freezer ever "turn on" since the unit is now removed. The water is still fully connected because I couldn't see a way to only shut-off the ice maker water supply without losing the cold filtered water supply. Anyone ever do this? Any problems removing the ice maker, but leaving the water supply connected? Thank you.

Plumber husband just said once the ice maker is unhooked it's not sending a signal to dispenser valve, therefore no water! Hope that helps!
