Tonight, get a battery flash light, turn it on, put it in the fridge and close the fridge door. Then turn off all the lights in the room. If you can see any light escaping around the fridge door, the door seals aren't working properly, and need replacing.
This is the main reason why too much water is being condensed and causing your fridge drip tray to overflow.

Having thermostat problems in my Maytag fridge/bottom freezer. Pulled the fridge out and vacuumed everything. This am the copper coil on the back outside is leaking water drop by drop. The coil is not hot/...


The copper coil on the back comes from the compressor and is what makes the fridge cold but it is filled with gas. They can condensate and drip water but this isn't usually enough to notice, or cause damage. I would actually suggest looking again to check the exact source of the water. Be aware that some water from the defrost cycle is supposed to drip into the evaporator tray at the back.

Have a GE Model #GSL22JFPHBS side-by-side refrigerator that the freezer is staying cold but the refrigerator part is not get cold.


its either the defrost heater or defrost thermostat or the defrost timer has gone bad and the evaporator is iced over,HINT: (you will see the inside rear panel in the freezer has frost on it) and the evaporator fan cannot blow cold air over the iced up coils in which case soon the freezer will start to seem warm too,if this isnt the case then its the damper vent door located between the freezer and fridge compartment that opens and closes to throttle cold air into the fridge from the freezer,sometimes they freeze shut from condensation or the door hinge breaks and it can jam shut,also if theres excessive water dripping into the fridge from the top it can be a plugged drain hole and water blocks cold air flow,also make sure the evaporator fan beneath the evaporator coil in the freezer is operating when the units running or cold air wont be pushed into the fridge either

Hi, I have a refurbished RFG297AARS from Samsung that we purcased as a refurb about 7 days ago. On day 1-3, a puddle of water formed under the back right underside of the fridge, without the water line...


Chances are its either the drip line or drip tray.. there is a drain to route the condensation pulled out of the fridge and freezer that leads to a drip pan underneat the unit.

Either the drip tray was not installed.. reinstalled incorrectly or the drain tube is leaking or no longer directed to it, or it's overflowing due to excess condensate.

Best of luck!

Milk which was spilled in the fridge has dripped into the drip tray behind the fridge and has created the most awful smell. Can the tray be removed for cleaning and if so how?


Yes, usually the tray can be removed for cleaning. You will have to pull the fridge out, unplug power, remove the rear access cover. Then you should see the evaporator / condensate tray and how to remove it.

Black tray above compressor is filling up with water on a RLA50


hi there.the tube your speaking about comes from the rear of the fridge down to the plactic tray on top of the compressor...and is used for conveying condensed water from the fridge to the dri tray where it is evaporated by the running heat of the comressor....excessive water can be caused by a faulty fridge door seal....door not closing correctly...and the possibility that your fridge setting is to low....or sited close to a working radiator

Water/condensation in both dairy tray and bottom of fridge


My guess is you have a blocked defrost drain. The water instead of going down its drain goes down the backside of the frig and pools up under the crispers. Blow out the defrost drain. The only other thing to look for is bad door gaskets.

Overflowing drip pan under the fridge


for reallybsq
problem could be door seals not sealing completely and hence excessive ice formed on evaporator and excess water when it melts. however, i have found this problem many times with large larder fridges and really found no cure.

for guest.
towards the bottom of the back wall, there is a gulley with a drain hole in the middle. this drain is blocked. clear it with something flexible and make sure water flows away freely

I have a larder fridge that seems to collect too much water in the tray at the back, it seems to be temperamental with cooling. It only works part time. How affected are they by not being completely level?...


this water should be evaporated by the motor heat.however, i have found with larger larder fridges of several makes that too much water is formed for it all to go.
worth while checking the door seals as well as if seal is leaking, more ice forms on the evaporator and hence more water
