Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX forward to helping you today.


Is this water collecting on the bottom of the freezer floor ?


Customer: replied 6 years ago.
it drips on to the door and freezes there
Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.
Can you get a temperature in the freezer? Do you have a thermometer you can put in there for a couple hours and check it later?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
yes, what should the temerature be?
Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.
It should be between 0 and 8° if it is fluctuating or going up above that you may be getting some ice that is melting enough to go down and refreeze, also make sure your flap is shutting tightly the ice flap. So you had the water shut off for an extended period of time and didn't still leak with the water shut off?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
have been fighting this for some time. when the water is shut off, there is no leakage.
Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.
Okay if there is no leakage with the water shut off then the valve has seepage, which means the valve is not shutting completely tight, unplugging the electrical part of the valve will do nothing for that, the valve as the solenoid on it which opens the valve , when the solenoid releases the valve is not shutting tightly, you need to replace the fill valve, thanks, Bryan
