Water puddle on floor from inside refrigerator could it be defrost heateris bad? water accumulates in the bottom of freezer and freezes seems to come out of evaporator/fan location


unkink the drain hose...I just opened up the back of my Frigidaire Side by Side counter depth to find the drain hose was bent and collapsed coming right out of the bottom of the freezer and the pan was dry as a bone. It doesn't look like my drain hose has ever drained a drop of water. The freezer bottom is full of ice And the rust and chipping paint under the bottom of the freezer door along with the mysterious puddles of water every morning means the drain system definetely never worked. Frigidaire should be responsible for this. This, along with the ice maker rebuild I had to do,... after ice was spilling all through the fridge. I actually had warrantty left on that one and called customer support in India to find out I could make the repair myself. Yep I had to do it. Frigidaire you failed.

There is water leaking in the freezer. I imagine it is the ice maker. There is an "ice puddle" on the bottom level and occasionally water seeps out onto the kitchen floor. Is this easy to fix for a...


my model is not exactly the same but check for this this anyway:
Take a flash light & check for ice in the back vent underneath the very bottom shelf in the freezer. If you see ice in there, completely defrost until the ice is gone & the plastic drip hole is unobstructed. The leak on mine was happening because that hole had frozen over & caused excess water to flow into the bottom of the freezer & out the bottom of the door instead of through that hole.

My GE side by side refrigerator is leaving a puddle on the floor in the morning. There is also a frozen puddle on the bottom of the freezer. What might be wrong?


You will need to remove the bottom freezer crisper and check the defrost drain , to see if it is iced over . If so , then use a hairdryer to melt the ice ( hot water also helps ) . When you see the drain , ( could be obvious obstruction from plastic ) , use a small hose inserted into the hole , to blow thru , to remove any unseen debris blockage .
You may have to remove the rear inside freezer panel to access this drain , depending on your model number .

My Fridgidaire Professional series refrigerator has a puddle of water in front of it about once every other day. The puddle is around the front on the freezer side of the fridge. What can I do to fix this?


Drain line in the freezer section is clogged, needs cleaning. There is a small drain pan on the bottom of the rear wall in the freezer. It is covered with ice. Defrost or remove ice, and get to the drain hole. try flushing with hot water, if does not help - clean mechanically on both sides of the drain line - in the freezer and in the back of the fridge, where it comes to the drain pan near condenser/compressor.

Water and ice in bottom of freezer, occasional water on floor


I believe your defrost condensate pan below the evaporator is blocked with ice and now when defrost happens the water pours over the tray and to the bottom of the freezer. You will need to defrost the ice in the collector tray and the pour a solution of hot water and clorox to make sure the water ends up in the condensate pan below your refrigerator. So unplug the refrigerator remove the panel and let me know what you find. I have some more solutions depending on what you see is happening. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Puddle/ice in freezer compartment of my side by side fridgedaire. have chipped out the ice twice and blow dried everything to get rid of any ice jams. ice puddle comes back in a few hours


Check and see if your box is level. Levelling of your box, may solve your problem?. In some cases, the box isn't level, and the water from the icemaker spills into the freezer. If you don't have an icemaker, the evaporator drain could be clogged? When the evaporator defrosts, the water has to drain into the very bottom and outside of the freezer into a drain pan. If the drain is clogged, the water will drain into the freezer. Good luck. I hope this helped?

Water puddling in bottom of freezer and freezing


the drain in the back of the freezer is probably full of ice. you need to pull out panel and use heat from a blow dryer to unplug the drain. then take a small gauge copper wire long enough to extend into the drain a couple of inches and loop it around the black heating element then when it goes yhrough defrost it should keep this from reaccuring
