Water on floor under fridge

I have a 2011 390 bh and out on our first trip of the season. Just unwinterized and I notice water pooling on the floor under the fridge. I had issues with the ice maker last year but I turned that off. Not sure what is in the vent area and where the water is coming from. Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

Did you drain all of the water out of the ice maker line when you winterized? A couple years ago, I winterized my ice maker by running pink stuff all the way through. The solenoid ( cheap piece of junk plastic housing ) housing froze anyway and split open. I purchased a new solenoid, but when I installed it, I left the water line off of it and closed it off with a valve. I never use the ice maker anyway.

Good luck,
Don

Not sure if all water was drained. The valve is shut off but water is still leaking. Removing the vent cover to explore.

Dometic looked at it at the rally last year and I turned off the water to the ice maker. Back on the list again for this years rally.

What is a solenoid? I removed the vent cover and cannot trace where it is leaking. It is dripping down but no tubes there?

Bucket to collect the drips until I get home. Thanks and see you in Goshen!

I have a residential fridge and the solenoid was at the bottom right side as you look at the fridge from the rear.

A solenoid is an electrical unit that feeds the ice maker when a signal is sent to fill with water. Maybe the Dometic doesn't use one, but there would have to be something inline to tell the water to shut off until it needs the tray to be filled again.

It would look like a small box with an electrical connection attached to it and a water line in and out of it.

Will look for it in the morning. Just checked outside and there is no water in the line out there so it must be leaking from bathroom line. The leak has slowed down but still dripping. I have done all I could. Thanks again.

First question, is it a domestic ( Whirlpool) or Dometic?
