Question about Sub-Zero 632 / S

1 Answer

Subzero 632 drain pan full of water and overflows onto floor

Our drain pan under the freezer size is so full of water that it gets so full that it pops loose and spills out onto the floor. I had a repairman come out and he replaced our original pan because it had actually split. We thought the problem was solved but now the new pan is overfilling. Isn't the water supposed to evaporate?

Is this something we can fix or do I need a professional. I just hate paying them to come out and then finding out that it was something really simple.

Dear,


Any one who charges that much for a "freon" leak in a 632 and does not replace the evaporator is a complete charlatan. Your "freon" will leak out again and more problems will occur.


regards,

dont rate it until satisfied

SUB ZERO 700 CLOGGED DRAIN


If the drain is located inside at bottom rear of the freezer compartment, you can ream it out with something like a chopstick. However, the leaking on the floor could be due to a cracked evaporation pan or pan overflow.

DRAIN PAN FULL OF WATER AND OVERFLOWING ONTO FLOOR


Hi,

What kind of unit do you have? Its possible depending on the manufacture that a water line is the cause as it drips water into the pan causes the overflowing of the drain pan. Look for cracks in all the water line under the unit and you may have to remove the back and the water valve to see it. Good luck

Hi,

Behind the crispers and the shelves at the bottom is a drain trough. This drain trough is clogged and would need to be cleared by air pressure. You can use canned air you can seal the opening to keep the pressure in the tube. Once cleared you should be fine.

This happens when food or foreign object get into this trough clog or slow water flow out of the fridge section.

I hope this helps.

Water accumulates in the bottom of the freezer, model FRS26ZRG, then melts out onto the floor


the water drain is clogged, when a freezer goes in to a defrosting cycle it MELTS the excessive ice build up and the water drains throug a drain (usually in the back of the freezer) than goes in to a pan under the freezer to evaporate until the next defrosting cycle, so check the pan if it's not full of dust or debrie (cat toy HA!) as well...

Water leaking onto the floor from freezer drain...


Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. .

Samsung Fridge Freezer leaking water


hi August.
Cause: A blocked defrost drain is one of the most common causes of water leakage. This happens when food particles or other debris clogs up the drain hose, which can lead to ice buildup and, eventually, water leaking out of the freezer and refrigerator.
3 common refrigerator problems you can easily fix yourself

The freezer drain hose will drain the defrost water into a drip pan at the bottom of the freezer. When this pan becomes full, it will leak water onto the floor. This is a regular maintenance task whenever the freezer defrosts. Empty the drip pan during the defrost cycle.
How to Fix Water Leaking From the Bottom of Freezer

Why is my fridge leaking water on the floor? If the refrigerator is leaking water it's possible that the refrigerator has a clogged or freezing defrost drain. If the defrost drain freezes the defrost water will overflow the drain and drip down to the bottom of the compartment, If enough water accumulates in the bottom it can run out onto the floor.

Defrost pan keeps overflowing


On the freezer side at the bottom of the freezer coil there is a drain. There should be a thin aluminium filiament attached to the defrost element and feeding down into the drain tube. This filiament conducts heat from the element down the tube preventing ice forming in the tube and keeping it clear.

Drain Pan overflowing


Refrigerators use different methods to eliminate the water, but they all use evaporation of some sort.This works,as most of the water in the drain pan comes from melted ice on the evaporator coil during the defrost cycle, and this is not very much. It sounds like you have excessive water in the pan. You stated the freezer/fredge is working properly. The condenser fan is running, I assume. Cleaning the dust off the coil will help the air flow. Most residential units do not have heating element in the drain pan. Your problem sounds like you are getting too much water in the pan. Have you noticed excessive ice in the freezer? Are the door gaskets in good shape. Does the unit have water and ice in the door? If so, where does the drain to, and has there been high usage of this?
