SOURCE: water leaking inside of refrigerator from freezer

The defrost drain is frozen, you need to take the cover off inside the freezer and there will be a drain hole probably coverd with ice, you will need to pop most of the ice out first then I use a turkey baster and a tub of hot water. Squirt the hot water in the hole over and over again untill it drains. Then just wipe everything down. Problem solved.

SOURCE: HELP WITH WATER LEAK??

If you have turned the water off and it is still leaking out of the freezer side you may have a plugged drain. the drain is there as part of the defrost system to keep modern refrigerators frost free. When the machine goes into defrost and the heater in the freezer comes on it drains out the drain to a pan underneath and the heat from the compressor and the condenser fan underneath the unit evaporate it and the whole process starts all over again. every once in a while something will plug the drain on the bottom of the inside of the freezer side and when the heater kicks on to defrost the refrig the water cant go anywhere but to the bottom of the freezer and seeps out the front at the bottom of the door between the gasket and the refrig. check the drain...because if you have turned off the water and it is still showing up this could very well be your problem. Take the bottom shelves out of the freezer and look to the back and bottom at the middle sometimes you can see the drain and sometimes you have to remove the thin metal panel covering the back bottom half of the freezer,....inspect the drain hole and remove any obstructions or ice build up. if need be pour hot water into the drain to melt any ice that could be causing the obstruction to the drain. and the hot water should drain out of the frige.Write me back and let me know if I can help you further....

SOURCE: water leaks from top mounted freezer area into the refrigerator

Remove the food from the freezer and the icemaker if equiped . Remove the air tower at the rear of the freezer section and remove the rear panel inside the freezer . Using a hair dryer to the drip pan , below the coils ( probably ice ) , starting at the center , defrost until you see the drain hole . Keep defrosting the hole ( hot water helps ) until water starts to flow down . Using a short piece of hose , insert it into the drain hole and blow . This should blow out any debris inside the drain hole . I would use a short piece of solid ALUMINUM wire ( 14-16 guage about 8 " long ) striped of all insulation , and insert it into the hole as far as possible , without any force . Wrap the other end about 1--1 1/2 turns around the black tube ( defrost heater ) above the hole . When the heater comes on , heat will transfer to the aluminum wire and keep the drain from freezing up again . Reasemble back panel , air tower , and , icemaker . Reinstall the food and its FIXYA'd .

SOURCE: Maytag refrigerator is leaking water

Your freezer has a drain that leads to the exterior drain pan beneath the unit. Occasionally this drain can become clogged resulting in standing water inside your freezer,due to line freeze over. This can, also, cause a run-off, as stated in your post. In the freezer, standing water will become ice and may result in defrost problems or inadequate coldness.

You will need to Clear the drain by forcing a solution of water and bleach or water and baking soda into the drain line with a basting syringe. If the solution will not flow through, slide a length of ¼ inch flexible tubing into the drain tube to push the clog through to the drain pan. Remove the tubing after clearing the clog. This will correct the issue.

The drain is located either on the floor of the refrigerator, beneath the vegetable crisper, or in the wall behind a drain funnel.



NOTE_It is important for the refrigerator to be level. If it is not level, doors may not open or close properly and may not seal tightly. Also, drainage from the defrost cycle might be impaired as might the ice making cycle. The appliance was engineered based on it being installed in a level position. While there may be some tolerance for out-of-level installation, the appliance will operate at its best when properly leveled.

Place a level on top of the refrigerator near the front. Do not put it on the door because the door may not be aligned with the refrigerator case. Check that the refrigerator is level from side to side. Next turn the level to check that it is level from front to back.

If it is not level, adjust one or more of the adjustable leveling feet until it is level. The feet are bolts that can be turned to raise or lower the refrigerator. If they cannot be adjusted with your fingers, use a crescent wrench or pliers.

If you have an ice-maker, it should also be checked for level after first leveling the refrigerator. An ice-maker that is out of level will spill water into the ice bin or into the freezer. It can be repositioned by loosening the mounting screws, adjusting it for level and then re-tightening the screws.

Ge GSL25JFTA is leaking water on the floor from the front of the unit


Turn off the water supply to the ice maker. If it stops the leak, look for a leaky O ring on the filter. There is a plastic hose that runs out of the front of the refrigerator and goes to the freezer door for the water dispenser. It has a connector near the freezer door lower hinge so the door can be removed easily. That connector can leak as well. There is a condensate pan under the refrigerator that may be over flowing too.

My refrigerator has water leaking from the freezer into the main refrigerator compartment. How can I stop that?


Hi,

Ok, you have too sources of water in the freezer section. one from the ice maker if you have one, other is defrost. Either one can cause this, check the drain under the evaporator, most likely the drain is obstructed and the water has no where to exit so it builds up and drains into the lower section (gravity). Te drain can be found under the evaperator behind the false wall in the freezer section. Good Luck

My Whirlpool Gold French Door Refrigerator GX2FHDXVD is leaking underneath. The pan is cracked. How do I remove the pan?


i don't think there is a pan in your machine,it's built into the bottom frame near the compressor where the water evaporates from the heat.most likely you have a blocked drain in the freezer or one of the water lines has a crack or the water valve is cracked and leaking.open the freezer door,look at the floor of the freezer to see if there's any ice there on the freezer floor,if so you have a blocked drain,where is the water leaking from,in the front of the machine or the rear,also do you have a water line hooked up to the machine?

One that old maybe ain't got a water filter. Lets see Monkey wards ice box .
Yeah I looked at repair clinic. Yours ain't got one listed. If you want a filter you can add an inline one from wall to water valve.

Every freezer have a drip collector beneath it. Some times it may be filled completely with water thus causing an overflow. Else, the opening to the collector is being blocked by some ice. Also this problem can happen with aging of the fridge. There is nothing you can do in particular in this case.

Have moved into new house with Admiral freezer/fridge/icemaker. Leaks water onto floor from time to time under freezer. Ice maker not connected to water supply so not that.ANY SUGGESTIONS?


Defrost drain is clogged causing this problem. Clear the dfrost drain and pan from inside the freezer section by removeing the freezer back cover plate and you will see from there. No extra parts required just patience.

Admiral HMG 62163 water leaking internally & freezing in lower basket


good attempt, its actually a clogged drain thats backing up and your drain water is not able to leave refrig so it falls to bottom of freezer floor and eventually out the door. romve the items from the freezer and take the lower back wall off form inside, directly under the evaporator under all that ice there is a drain hole, youll need to clear that hole of iec( pouring boiling water down until you get a free flow of water then you can reassemble uint problem solved
