Ice Maker Leaking

Residential 3-door Refrigerator. Cedar Creek 36CKTS Fifth Wheel.


Icemaker has started leaking. And thus making a 'solid' mess of the ice in the bin.


Refrigerator was not very secure when I got it, and since then Techs have bolted it to the side wall and floor with L brackets. It'd be hard to get it to slide out IF I have to access the back!!!!


How can I determine where it's leaking and how to rectify?


P.S.
We're at home and it's hooked up in driveway, but not to water. I COULD hook it up to water using outside hose, if really needed.

Nope mine leaked too. Frigidaire double door and freezer drawer. I dont use alot of ice so I just shut the ice maker off in the options menu on the fridge door computer thingie. No more leaks. I keep a bag of ice in the freezer just in case. I had to pull my fridge out twice cuz it never worked since new. Warntied it but theyjust put in new control board. After pulling it out twice and then finding the leak after I just said forget it and shut off ice maker. No more leaks.

I know people have. Unfortunately you would need to get to the back of the fridge. 90% of the time I would say it's a cracked water line

Well, I was told by tech last night on phone that he had seen many of these that thought they were leaking water, but he suggested turning on the "humidity control", which is an actual button on the top front of the inside, and he said that has fixed 90% of the problems. I'm not hooked up to water, but I turned it on......we shall see. I never knew the button was there.

Open both doors (whirlpool 3 door residential refrig), up top is a panel with a bunch of push buttons. One of them is "Humidity Control".
