Cool GE Icemaker dripping inside
Model Number: tfx24srawh   Brand: GE   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


This is a side by side GE with ice and water dispenser in the door. I just replaced the water inlet valve because it would not shut off and flooded my kitchen floor.
It worked fine for a few days, but now the icemaker is dripping water inside the freezer compartment, which freezes the ice cubes together and prevents the auger from dispensing the cubes.

I suspect a recent water department line repair set loose debris which crippled my inlet valve, causing the original problem. but i don't know if the current problem is related or not. Is there any way to clear this or do I have to replace the icemaker unit? For a 15 year old fridge, it works fine other than this issue, but if I have to replace the icemaker unit, I will have spent $150 on an old unit and maybe that's not such a good idea.

Can you see it dripping water from the icemaker, and if so, where exactly is the drip coming from, (front housing, back where the fill cup is, middle?) and is it a constant drip?

Is it leaking into the back left corner of the ice bucket?

The leak is constant and in the back of the tray, dripping into the rear left corner of the ice bucket

Aside from buying a new icemaker, you can try this. Take the icemaker out, and give it a good cleaning. Over the years minerals and such will build up, and as water is filling the icemaker some will get diverted and spill over, so clean it up real good especially around the fill cup area.

I would pull the water solenoid out, unplug fridge and remove outlet hose from the water solenoid. If dripping, you have a partially clogged screen, or something got jammed inside the valve.
