Refrigerator - Icemaker Leaking or Dripping Water

To minimize the possibility of electric shock, unplug the appliance from the power supply before attempting any maintenance or cleaning.


If the icemaker in your refrigerator appears to be leaking water into the ice bucket or onto the floor, you can check the following:


If the icemaker is leaking water onto the floor:

  • Turn off the icemaker and then turn off the water supply to the icemaker. See Refrigerator - On/Off Switch on the Icemaker.

  • The water supply line for the refrigerator is usually located under the kitchen sink.

  • Locate the cold water supply line and look for a small 1/4" copper line attached to it. Where these two lines meet there will be a saddle valve. This is the shut-off valve for the water going to the refrigerator. Turn this valve in a clockwise direction until it stops. This will shut off the water to the icemaker. If the water line is not connected under the sink, it should be in the basement or crawl space.
