Water leaking out of the back

I noticed that I had water leaking out from under the wine refrigerator.  When i pulled it out and looked at the back there is a pan that holds overflow water and it was completely full. I have emptied it 2 but not sure why or where the leak is coming from.

My water dispenser was not working. Tried the defrost trick and still no water. Noticed water under the refrigerator.


The Dispenser supply usually flows through the bottom, inside toward the back to cool the water. If the puddle is near the back. refrigerator section it's probably this water cooling arrangement. Usually. a number of the tubing loops near the back bottom edge. Connections here or tubing itself may leak. It may also be an undetected leak from the Filter housing or the filter is not properly seated or possible filter housing connections. I have had good success with paper towel detection method. Wrap
or paste, tape towel to suspect leak locations. They will soon appear and point to the apparent leak.

It leaks water from underneath


It is not really leaking water (did you put water inside?) ... that is probably condensate ... a by product of the cooling process. Are you in a high humidity area? If yes ... that is the primary reason for this water.

Here in North America, we think that only white wine should be chilled and then only to 'celler' temp (or about 55 degrees F.

You may be able to reduce the water problem if

(1) up the temp in the cooler (it isn't a refrigerator - don't use it as one)
(2) don't put 'hot' wine inside
(3) put a small fan blowing on the cooler to help evaporate the condensate.

If the water is a big problem, sit your frig on a big tray, similar to the one you might put under your car in the garge to catch dripping oil.

I hope you find these suggestions helpful.

Thanks for visiting and please come again.

Water is leaking under the refrigerator. This is


If everything else on the refrigerator seems fine (freezing and refrigerating are fine), then you probably have a problem with the drain hose under the evaporator coil. On frost free freezers, there is a heater that comes on periodically to melt off all the frost on the evaporator coil, and that defrosted frost (water) goes out a drain hose and collects in a pan at the back of the unit where it can evaporate.

Either the drain is clogged with ice inside the freezer, (in which case you might notice ice building up on the bottom of the freezer, or perhaps water collecting on the bottom of the refrigerator if your freezer is on top) OR there is something wrong with the pan at the back of the refrigerator, like a crack, or it somehow got tilted so that the water pours out. It is located behind the panel on the back.

Or perhaps, and this would really ****, the water line that supplies your ice maker is leaking, if you have one. If you do have one, I would recommend turning the water line to the fridge off before pulling the fridge out.

Moisture on back black panel near the middle of the back of refrigerator


If this is equipped with an icemaker, check the water line for leaking also the ice maker water valve for leaking.
If you have a external condensate drain line on the rear,is it cracked and leaking?

Water seeping out the bottom of my wine cooler


there should be a drain pan that you will periodically remove. Condensate (water) is a normal byproduct of all refrigeration devices. Also look for a drain fitting that you can run to a waste line.

Frigidaire Side-By-Side Refrigerator Leaks Water on Floor


I don't have the same refrigerator, but had a similar issue with a GE. Melt the ice at the bottom of the freezer. I think the water comes from the auto defrost feature. There should be a hole at the back bottom of the freezer that water would go into, and run to an evaporator pan under the refrigerator. The tube may be blocked that allows this water to drain, so it is backing up in the bottom of the freezer, and overflowing through the front bottom of the freezer to your floor.

Water Leaks from front door


My tenants informed me that water was showing up on the floor in front of the refrigerator. I checked the back where the evaporator tray is and it was dry. When i looked inside the refrigerator I notices water pooled inside, under the plastic bottom drawer. Anybody have any idea what i should do? thanks.

Water leaking from unit


It may be the drain line is not dripping into the catch bucket under the back side, visually check to see if the line is reaching into the bucket and that it's not clogged up on the inside of the unit floor. The back panel being wet may just be condensation in between cooling cycles as the frost melts. If the unit is OK with keeping temps the refrigerant charge is likely OK.
