Drain frozen over

Where is the drain? I have cleaned the ice from the bottom of the freezer, but only see one hole on the side. This hole looks like it leads into the fridge. I have emptied the freezer, and turned it off. It is now defrosting. Anything else I should do?

    my maytag is working properly on the freezer side, but not cold on the other side. I was told I need a thermostat and a control board. Is this true, they quoted me $443

    I found the drain at the back of the freezer. Once the ice was cleaned up, I removed the back cover and the drain was easy to get to. I was able to clean it out with hot water and a turkey baster.

Ummm that sounds like a good fix, ( usually though its one or the other, either the adaptive defrost control, orthe defrost thermostat( which comes with a new defrost heater), id be skeptical of both being bad and damn thats a high quote.($315 would be a more realistic repair charge) id call for a second opinion!

Yes you have to remove a white aluminum panel at rear of frezzer near bottom behind here is the condensing coil at bottom is a metal tray the hole in bottom lines up with hole in plastic which is where you water drains. If there is ice and this is getting clogged replaced your thermostat defroster coil that wraps under condensing coil

Your drain line is frozen and not allowing the defrost water to drain to the pan below. The drain hole is at the bottom of the evaporator coil in the freezer behind the metal rear panel. You may need to remove the panel to access it. You can use hot water to thaw it out and you should be in good shape.

Mattag PSB 2151 Side by Side Fridge/Freezer. Water is dripping out at front corner under freezer side everyday. Defrost Thermostat?


Most likely plugged up defrost drain hole. Do you see any frozen water (ice) in bottom of freezer? If so then remove lower back wall of freezer compartment and use a turkey baster with some hot water to "plunge" the defrost drain tube till the water starts to flow. Clean up excess ice and away you go!!
Good luck!

I have water leaking from what looks like a drain hole in the bottom of the freezer side causing ice buildup in bottom of freezer under bin. How can I fix this?


chisel away the ice at the bottom and you will see your drain line. Use a turkey baster and hot water and shoot water down the drain line until its clear. Once its draining freely put another half cup of hot water down the drain line. this will correct the problem. The water is coming from the defrost cycle which is normal the drain hole is just frozen over and the water has nowhere to go but to overflow. Good luck _MJ_

My Maytag wide by side is leaking water from the


Yes. Your defrost drain hole in the lower rear of the freezer is frozen over with ice. Turn off the fridge. Remove the shelves and bins from the freezer side. Break up any ice on the floor of the freezer and dispose of it. Use a hair dryer to melt the ice over the drain hole in the rear portion of the freezer. Once it is clear pour a 1/4 cup of bleach into the drain hole.

Leaking in the bottom of the freezer side


Plugged up drain. Unplug refrigerator. Remove basket at bottom of inside freezer ( it may be frozen in ice) . Get your hair dryer and thaw and remove all ice, At the very back bottom of inside freezer is the drain that is plugged up. You will see a hole, pour hot water into it. You may need to snake a flexible piece of wire through the hole. Once water goes down its open. Worst case you may have to remove drain tube in back bottom and clean out. Hope this helps

I have ice at the bottom of my side by side GE TFX30PRY. It seems to be a clogged drain but I'm not sure where the drain is located on this model


Remove the bottom freezer crisper , and at the bottom of the panel ( it looks like you have a drain trough cover which has to be removed ) , if its not frozen over with ice , youll see a drain hole . Use a hair dryer to defrost the drain until you see the hole . Then continue defrosting the hole until water will flow thru it . Sometimes , hot water helps to thaw the drain . When thawed , use a small hose inserted into the drain , and blow thru it , to clear out any debris in the line .

Your defrost drain line is clogged and frozen over with ice.
Turn off the fridge. Remove the bottom freezer drawer. Take a hair dryer and thaw the drain hole at the back bottom section of the freezer. After you defrost the drain line pour 1/4 cup bleach into the drain hole.

Frigidaire leaking


the drain in the freezer compartment is frozen up you can remove all items from lower freezer and remove access panel on back of freezer compartment pick the ice out of the drain hole with a small screwdriver DO NOT USE SCREWDRIVER AROUND THE ALUMINUM COILS! once all ice is gone that you can see use hairdryer to blow into hole on medium heat. once it looks like it is gone take a small 1/4 plastic tubing and push down the hole to try to clear obstructions then run hot water down hole. if it still doesnt drain take rear access panel off of compressor area (back of refrig) look for drain hose and remove clamp take off and clean u might try this first. but you will have to remove ice from drain.

Water leaking onto floor


Angels, sounds like your defrost drain is frozen over. When the refrigerator is going into defrost it's draining through the front instead of the drain pan. You can remove the shelves and peel off the back cover and clear the drain by pouring hot water on the frozen drain hole. If you have a baster of some sort you could try to squirt the hot water through the venting on the bottom of the panel. Another way to to point a hair dryer on the drain hole. The best method is to remove the shelves and panel and make sure the drain is clear. Catriver..post back.
