Water coming out of ice maker frigidaire ffhs2622msya
If you have a Frigidaire refrigerator with an icemaker, you may notice that water leaks from the icemaker from time to time. There are several reasons why this occurs, ranging from simple fixes to ones that are more complex. Once you notice leaking water, running through a quick checklist determines the problem, so that you can fix it.
Water Supply ConnectionsNo matter the type connection material used, it must be tight and secure so that no water leaks out. Check every place where a pipe connects to the appliance. Make sure the connection is tight and that there are no leaks. Ensure that the water supply valve is turned on completely. As you check each connection, watch that there are no drips. Tighten them if you catch any possible issue, as this could solve your problem.Clogged Condensation DrainWater can appear leaking from the icemaker when it is actually caused by a clogged condensation drain. The automatic defrost system occasionally turns on, melting any frost from the cooling coils. The resulting water falls into a drain sending it to a pan to evaporate. However, if ice from the icemaker makes it into this drain, it can clog it, and the water accumulates in either the fresh-food compartment or the bottom of the freezer in a side-by-side model. In a side-by-side with an icemaker, the water appears to be coming from the icemaker. Check the drain and clear it if there is a clog.
Ice Maker ValveIn Frigidaire models with an icemaker, a valve regulates the amount of water in the icemaker. If this valve malfunctions, a leak can result. The valve directs the water into cube molds. When obstructed by mineral deposits, the water sprays out of the molds. The water drips down and pools at the bottom of the freezer and onto the floor outside of the unit. Cleaning out the screen located at the end of the valve solves this problem.
