Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Almost once a day now there is water on the floor under the fridge. I'm sure it is a result of the ice maker refilling but I don't know how to fix it. It's like the fill valve stays open to long or something of that nature.

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly
\015\012Actually I want you to look in the bottom of the freezer compartment at the evaporator drain area. Look for standing water OR signs of ice in the very back of the freezer but on the bottom usually center of the rear access area. If you see standing water there or slabs of ice... the evaporator drain is clogged and will need to be cleared by a manual defrosting with a fan for about 2 hours. (Messy)
\015\012Every automatic defrost cycle the process of defrosting via an electrified heater makes water 2 to 3 times a day depending on the scheduled defrost cycle periods. It can be from 6 hour to 10 hour intervals. Once that water collects if the drain is clogged it will sheet in the bottom of the freezer because it can not drain into the catch tray under the back of the unit once the unit goes back to normal cooling.
\015\012
\015\012Now as for the ice-maker. Here is a way to make sure or not it actually is the a problem with the ice maker water valve.
\015\012( I C E M A K E R Switched O F F )
\015\012On the back of the unit there is a plastic water line that goes to the rubber through the cabinet fill tube. Squeeze the clamp and remove the plastic hose. Place that hose in a bucket for at least 12 hours. At the end of 12 hours check the bucket for any significant signs of water. If there is water in the bucket with ice maker OFF then the ice maker water valve is bypassing water and will have to be replaced.

Noises Last winter we lost power for days, ever since, our two years old refrig started making noises often, we are not sure where exactly, but it does sound like it has something to do with the water going into the ice makers. I understand it's normal for some degrees of noise when the water is filling up, but this happens very often and honestly, I don't remember the refrig. used to make so much sound and often throughout the day. Is it normal? or this is something that I can fix it myself?

Something is leaking water from our freezer. We keep finding small puddles on the floor under the front wheels of the fridge. We unplugged the fridge to defrost it this morning. Don't know how long that takes, but it looks like water is leaking from 2 squares on the back wall of the freezer. It is still unplugged now.


Hi,From the symptoms you describe the water leak is due to the defrost drain being clogged. Every 8 hours or so the refrigerator will go through an automatic defrost cycle to melt the frost from the evaporator (cooling coils). The water f ... Refrigerators

The water and ice dispenser are not working. When I try to use the water dispenser it doesn't sound like anything is working (no sounds) as opposed to the ice dispenser to which I can hear the motor running. It seems like no water is not getting into the refrigerator system because neither water or NEW ice is being produced from the machine. Therefore I believe something might be clogged or the system just needs to be fixed? How do I check up on the problem or even better, how do I fix this p

Noise I like my refrigerator very much but it is extremely noisy, specifically the doors. It is like a vibrating noise. I open the door and it stops, then closing the door an inch or two it starts again and it does this constantly all day. Two friends have the same refrigerator, theirs are not noisy. All I want from you is to know what is the probable cause and I will call someone to fix it. The extended warranty people do not handle this problem. Hoping for a reply. Maurine Freeman

Chemical odor I have started noticing a chemical smell from the refrigerator and freezer. The appliance is a GE Profile side by side and is approx. 10 years old. We keep our Grandson's bottles of milk and teething toys in there...is this harmful? The ice tastes like plastic sometimes. I saw a lot of posting that others have had this problem also, but no solutions??? I can't believe this isn't something a repairman can't fix or pinpoint??? It sounds like it's a common problem with older models?


This can be a result of chemical reaction in internal parts. If you notice it is faint the keep orange peels to get off the smell. It could be the freon. It is kind of like your a.c. in your car. It is the gas that makes it cold. You might have a lea ... Hotpoint HSS25GFP Side by Side Refrigerator
