Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Answers :

The defrost drain tube is froze up. Unplug for 48 hours with the freezer door open or take the evaporator cover off the rear panel in the freezer section & defrost with a hair dryer being careful not to melt the plastic. Confirm the drain is draining by poring water through As you watch it go into the drain. pull the unit out & remove the cover off the back to access the drain pan. Make sure there is no junk in the end of the defrost drain where it goes into the drain pan.

LG LFC21760ST: In freezer area floor, there is ice build-up. Water is leaking from the back wall where two horizontal openings are (near the center). We've turned off the water for the ice maker but this is still continuing. Where is this leak coming from and what can we do to stop it? Thanks.

Ice maker I just recently replaced the ice maker dual water valve on my hotpoint side by side. The valve is located on the back and bottom of the hotpoint. The housing was leaking. After I changed the valve and replaced old water lines. I turned the water on , no leaks, but, the water would not stop running into the ice maker . I thought that I might have switched the connnections to the solonoids so I reversed them . Same thing, water would not stop. I did notice that my water line was making a

My refrigerator is leaking water. I pulled the frig out and there was water dripping off of the electrical wires that go up in the back of the frig.

My 642 stopped making ice; I took the and cover/rear plate off so I could see what was happening ice-maker-wise. I saw no water in the maker. I realized a plumber had (possibly; I'm not 100% sure) turned off what i believed was the water supply to the freezer. I turned that on, but still do not see water filling the tray maker. Any ideas?

-My Maytag RSW22A side by side Refer/Freezer stopped making ice. The water still works, the tines still turn every hour or so as if there were cubes there but the tray no longer fills up with water. Just prior to this happening, we had to shut off the water to the house for a day for some repairs. Is there some kind of priming I have to do to get the water flowing into the ice maker again? Could a valve to the icemaker be bad even though the valve to the water dispenser still works? Thanks.

My GE Profile TBX22PR ice maker seems to be leaking water on the floor. Is this because the ice tray somehow didn't get pushed back in properly? Or is there another problem? When I turn off the water line, the leaking stops.This happened once before, and when I removed the tray and put it back in again the leak stopped. But, this time it doesn't seem to correct the problem.

My LRSC26923TT side by side fridge/freezer has stopped making ice. It still dispenses water but it would not dump the last tray produced. I removed the cubes from the tray by hand, emptied the freezer, and shut down the fridge for an hour with the freezer door open to allow all parts to thaw and the electronics to reset. When I turned the fridge back on, it returned to normal operation, except the ice maker still will not work. The ice maker has an on/off switch. I've cycled that switch both on
