I have a 1997 kenmore side by side fridge that was given to me . looked real nice but sat for a long time.I have replaced the temp. control,ice maker,water fill valve and all water lines due to freeze damage. ran fine for two weeks in garage .In house now and seems to run constantly.Freezer is fine ,ice maker fine,fridge at 45 degrees. it it normal for this unit to run and not cycle every hour or two and if not any suggestions
It is not necessary to cycle each hour if the fridge can retain its temperature. Have a temperature check just before it starts having a cycle and at the end of it. ...
Emerson ice maker. stopped making ice other day. unplug for a day. I removed the back panel and top to look for any burnt components, nothing.. filled and let it run for hours. made ice and worked with one noticable difference. when filling water it puts in 2 short bursts then it runs and runs even over flow for about 20 seconds. then all is well. didn't notice this before.
Emerson Im90 Portable Ice Maker
I have an LG LRFD21855ST and I have ice on the bottom that keeps accumulating. It appears from what the tech who came out say, that the drain line is blocked by ice. His take is that is because the insulation (which you can't see) must be saturated and therefore any water running down the drain is going to freeze. No solution except to unplug, let it dry out and wait a couple of days
I called LG- what a mess. one hour and 40 minutes and they said it wasn't under warranty because it wasn't a c
I had the same problem with mine. However, the technician removed the icemaker and the inside panel at the back of the freezer. He then used a heat gun and hot water to unfreeze the drain line and then flushed it out with a turkey baster. He said ...

We have an LG fridge freezer about 8 years old that leaks water out of the door onto the floor. It started to do this about about 8 month ago and we got a serviceman to look at it. The problem was that the drain that takes the defrost water away in the freezer had frozen over. He cleared the ice and it was okay for 6 month but it happenend again. This time I turned the fidge off for 12 hours and it cleared but this time it only lasted for a couple of months before leaking.. We approached th

Whirlpool Gold side-by-side model GD5YH8XNLOO not cooling. Fan runs and compressor tries to kick on a couple of seconds but immediately kicks off. Have tried shutting off for a few hours and then back on with no success. Do I need new compressor or refidgerator charge and can I put it on myself if fairly mechanically inclined. I've successfully recently fixed my ice maker by replacing the water regulator and ice maker timer. The compressor looks good and i keep the fridge maintained. It is about

I have a Jenn Air model JS48SEDBDA side by side refrigerator/freezer. I have the problem that so many others have where the water and/or ice is running and building up in the back top. The new drip pan with drain and foil heaters was replaced recently as well as the thermostat. The thermister was disconnected per the instructions with the drip pan to create a 6 hour defrost cycle. Whats strange is the drip pan this time didnt appear to be frozen or the drain tube but there was frozen droplets o
Hi.If the evaporator is icing up, then the problem is not the drain pan, but the defrost system. A defective defrost system turns condensation into ice in the evaporator. The only problem with the defective drain pan is that when the evap ...
I have a Jenn-air refrigerator model JFI2589AES. We bought it new four years ago. The panel on the outside of the door that controls water and ice is "shorting" out. It looks and sounds like the ice despenser opens and closes repeatedly for an hour or so- no ice comes out. During this time the whole panel looks like its shut down and no water or ice comes out-- but it makes a sound like ice is trying to come out. After an hour or so the it starts up again and the panel states "freezer max temp
The small drain tube in the evaporator compartment freezes over in about 1 month, even though the evap. is clear with no frost or ice build up at all. The water from the defrost runs into the fridge compartment and freezes or leaks onto the floor. I thaw out the tube and the tray, fan and evap. all look o.k.

Whirlpool ET9FTKXK Top Freezer Refrigerator
Ice was building up in the lower freezer and water was running down on top of the ice and out of the freezer and on to the floor. I assumed it was a plugged drain not allowing the water to go out and then causing it to refreeze. I cleaned the drain tube, but now, a few days later, I see ice building up again. It is not leaking, but I think in time it will. What else can I check. Is it possible that the freezer is somehow keeping itself too cool and freezing the water (from the defrost cycle) bef

GE GDS18LBR Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
Amana Fridge with bottom freezer Model# ABB2224DEQ There is a 1/4 inch ice build up on floor of freezer. Then, the following defrost cycle causes water to run out of the freezer onto the floor. Thought the drain to the evaporating tray was plugged, but cannot find a drain hole anywhere or an evaporating tray. Ice is a 1/4 inch thick or more when my wife breaks it out. Where is all of this water coming from. There is no ice-maker or water dispenser. I checked the door seal, it fastens tightly to
The hole to evap tray tends to get plugged. After unplugging, it may take an hour to drain entire system. Then system needs to go through the defrost cycle. There is likely a buildup of water that was frozen and will now drain. Keep an eye on the eva ...
Ice Maker is not making ice.
Water dispenser seems fine, but water pressure changes while dispensing. We do have problems with the water dispenser from time to time--(it will suddenly stops dispensing water for and hour or so and I assume it is freezing). It has been pretty reliable the last couple of months.
I have not heard the water running into the ice maker for several days and have not had any new ice being made. When I removed the ice bin, I noticed a chunk of ice right above the

GE GSS25LGM Side by Side Refrigerator
I have a Kenmore side by side model # 106.53609202 and its about 8 years old. About a month ago it stopped making ice. I've already replaced the water valve behind the fridge and waited 24 hours and still no ice. The water dispensor in the freezer door works fine. I haven't heard the ice maker 'call' for water either. The drain hole in back of the freezer was blocked with ice but I cleared it with hot water. The short water tube that feeds the ice tray is not plugged up. I think that's about it.
OK, remove the cover on the face of the ice maker and let me know if the model look like this picture: If it looks like this mod ...

Had water building up in the refrigerator section, saw a post that said to defrost it and add copper wire to drain port. Did this and it seemed to be working fine for a few days (ice maker working). Later noticed a lot of water on the floor. Looked in the evaporator tray and it was full of water. Noticed water in the refrigerator, ice on the bottom of freezer and ice maker making hollow ice cubes. I was going to empty the evaporator tray when the water to the i

Water freezes in the drain of the freezer compartment thereby plugging up the drain......with water running onto the floor. I am now running an electric heater in the freezer box to melt the ice & plugged up drain.
There are drain heaters that you can buy that will take the heat off of the motor and transfer it to the tube to keep it from freezing. I recommend buying one, they are fairly cheap. Just call up the local dealer or you can find them on online stores ...
Defrost drain Our Frigidaire Gallery side by side is freezing the water when it defrosts itself. The water is not going out the drain and freezes instead. We used a hair dryer to defrost all the ice under the coils and around drain but drain has a rubber grommet on it and we can't figure out how to get water to run out. Is the rubber grommet suspose to come out?? Model number is FRS26ZGHW3 Or is there another drain somewhere beside under the coils because this one with the rubber grommet

I have water leaking under freezer side of door. I turned the ice maker off, turned off the water to the fridge, cleaned out the ice behind the panels, and put it all back together. Every couple of days I chip the ice off of the bottom of freezer; if I forget I get a puddle of water on my hard wood floor. The plug is in the drain hole. Is the heat element suppose to evaporate everthing when it goes through the defrost cycle? How do I quit having water run all over my floor?

Maytag MSD2651 HE Side by Side Refrigerator
First thing is the water dispencer quits working, all lights still work and the ice dispencer still works. The unit then quits blowing cold air. Does not blow any air at all. You can still hear the unit running. Everything starts thawing out and I have to take the ice collector out or it will run out the freezer door. After about seven hours it all starts working again. Strange because it all starts with the water dispencer stopping, do not know what this would have to do with the compressor not

Water is pooling in the bottom of the freezer compartment. It then freezes. Over time it builds up enough ice on the freezer floor such that the freezer door won't close. Then the ice melts and runs onto the floor. I can't figure out where the water is coming from that is collecting on the freezer floor.
Home Depot's online Repair Guru suggested that I have a clogged defrost drain. I don't doubt that but I don't know how to get access to that drain so as to try to unclog it.
