Default A leak at the bottom in the freezer even with the water turned off to the ice maker
Model Number: lrfd25850st   Brand: GE   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Water is leaking into the bottom of the freezer causing ice to build as a sheet. I turned the water supply off to the refrig and it still does it. On the back wall inside the freezer it looks like there are two vents and water is running down the back onto the bottom. The style refrig is freezer on the bottom and two doors with water on the left door. Any help would be great.

Hello,

Most likely the problem is a clogged/frozen drain in the freezer under the evaporator coils. Every time when the evaporator defrosts, the water should be drained out.

Remove the rear cover inside the freezer and clean the drain. Check the drain hose on the back of the refrigerator (#105A at the diagram).

Here are the breakdown diagrams and Parts for LG LRFD25850ST Refrigerator - AppliancePartsPros.com

Gene.

GENE, THANKS FOR THE ADVICE BUT i AM HAVING A HARD TIME GETTING THE INSIDE COVER OFF. THERE ARE TWO AIR SCOOPS THAT DONT APPEAR TO COME OFF. THE WHOLE BACK WANTS TO COME OFF WHICH MEANS TAKING OFF THE SLIDES AND ICE MAKER. I LOOKED AT THE TUBE IN THE BACK AND IT IS BONE DRY. IF I LET IT MELT DO YOU THINK THAT WOULD HELP?

You can completely defrost the fridge and blow some air through the tube on the back to confirm it is clear.
