Water on the top shelf of the refrigerator

I think the ice maker is leaking somewhere and I'm receiving water (standing) on the top shelf of my refrigerator... I chcked the outside icemaker line and it is not leaking. I think it's internal. It's a Whirlpool model number ETICHMXKQ03.

Your defrost drain is clogged and now the defrost drain trough has filled with ice causing the water from your defrost cycles to flow into the fresh food section. You will need to clear all ice form thr drain area and this is done thru the freezer wall and some models also have a removable bottom panel in the freezer that has to come out also to get to the drain. You can do this it will just take a little time. About an hour for a first timer with little experience. Good luck and hope this helps

Ice maker is leaking water at the rear of the ice maker, somewhere around the water inlet. Water is dripping slowly and building up an ice ***** BEHIND (outside) the ice cube storage bin AND inside the...


Hello,The reason all the ice freezes together and you see icecicles forming from the icemaker,is going to caused by the water inlet valve on the back of the refrig.is not fully closing but instead it's seeping water through it and dripping into the ice storage bucket. To stop that from happening the water inlet valve would need to be replaced.
On refrigerators that have a built in water filter,alot of times their will be 2 water valves and the one that is bad causing water to seep through it will be the one called the SECONDARY valve.

Icemaking is ok but I find water at the bottom of the frige .What seems to be the Problem tHIS A ULINE BAR REFIRERATOE WITH iCE MAKER


Your feed line may have a leak in the line itself or in one of the connectors. This it the line that sends water to the automatic ice-maker. Check the line coming from the wall to the ice-maker connector and slide your hand down the line. You will find water somewhere along this line and you have found your leak. This should be very easy to fix.

Icemaker leaks after refilling causing ice cubes to weld into a mass of ice.


I believe your water control valve on the back of refrigerator is leaking slowly and causing this. They are called dual water control valves because the ice maker work on one side and the water dispenser works on the other side. Most ice makers open the water valve forthe ice maker for 7.5 seconds just long enough to fill. Do you have your Sears model numer for example 321.54689 somewhere on your refrigerator or around door frame. Sea Breeze

Water is leaking out of ice maker and freezing up where cubes are


Sounds like water valve is not closing all the way after the icemaker calls for water. This is because sediment in water builds up on valve seat therefore letting water pass through. Suggest replacing fill valve. Crescent shaped ice....ice maker on needs 4 ounces to fill icemaker, so any more than that will spill out.

Water leaking from icemaker on outside


If this is your water dispenser leaking
Your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is probably leaking. disconnect the water line coming out of it and see if you have a slow drip. Try the dispenser to see if it's just drips after use.

Ice accumulating in freezer


There should be a tube that brings water to your icemaker from the back of the fridge into the icemaker. This tube is frozen with water, or the inlet where this tube feed the icemaker tray is frozen. The result is that water cannot go to the ice maker, and instead, goes over the top of the inlet area.

Verify that this is indeed what is going on.

The fix is to remove the blockage/buildup of ice at the inlet. You may have to detach the icemaker to get to it. Be carefull with electricity! Also be carefull as plastic can break under stress!
The tube may be frozen to the inlet, channel locks can be used to gently twist the tube to break it free.
Good Luck!
