WATER IS LEAKING BEHIND ICE MAKER - Refrigerators


Answers :

Ok first off without a make and model number this is generic but fitting to most any refrigerator. The water valve is most likely letting water pass by when the water supply is supposed to be shut off. What happens is the water valve diaphram wears or has debris in it and the water trickles past the diaphram when the needle seats in the diaphram. The only fix for this is to replace the inlet water valve. Most any homeowner can replace the inlet water valve. Depending on your make and model the water valves run under $50.00 including shipping. There are a few exceptions.

Most times that is caused by a leaking water control valve. The water flows slow enough to freeze at the end of the fill tube. Then every time the ice maker decides to fill the water is misdirected and goes into the freezer compartment. Have questions please let me know, Thanks Sea Breezesea_breeze_30.jpg

I can see a drip coming from the back , behind where the ligh bulb goes attatched. but do not see where it comes from. Sometimes it leaks so much th

After hearing a clicking sound for serveral days, I found that my Ice Maker inmy Kenmore Side by side model 106.552400 was no MAKING ice. However, water is able to be dispensed as well as what little ice has remained in the bin. No leaks are apparent behind the refrigerato and nothing else has been disturbed. On another model, water collects in the floor and crispers but the refrigerator otherwise freezed and cools okay.


The clicking sound was from the icemaker. Check the icemaker arm is not stuck and should move freely. If the arm is all the way up then this will **** off the production of ice from the ice maker. If the arm is down it should be producing ice. The cl ... Refrigerators

Refrigerator leak I have an intermittent leak from the left front of my Maytag side by side refrigerator freezer. it appears that the leak is coming from the tubing from the water line to the ice maker. The tubing can be pulled out from below the left freezer door. When I pull it out, there is a coupling? apparently joining the tube from the water line and from the ice maker. The male ends of the tubes seem to have small holes where they enter the coupling. Why would the tube be leaking fro

Just developed a big leak in line that supplies water to ice maker. Pulled out unit and found line leaking and loose. Can not tighten it to stop. Is there an o ring or farrow that may have split?

Make sure your water connection is good. You may need to buy a new compression fitting if the water line is copper or use a new flex line with compression fitting built in to it. If you have a good connection check for a cracked water valve. ... Refrigerators

It now makes 8 cubes of ice in a 24 hour period and is still leaking. There is ample water pressure in the water dispenser. Any ideas what could be the problem?
