Yes coils could be dirty, but your drain is clogged. To clean the drain cut the pvc line and blow the drain line out. You can put bleach in the drain pan every 6 months to keep it clean.

HAVE A GE REFRIGERATOR TYPE TFX25CR THAT LEAKES WATER FROM TIME TO TIME, ABOUT 5 OZ


The evaperator for the drip under the bottom of the unit is probably dirty or has gone bad. Pull the fridge out and look under the bottom and you should see a pan with a coil above it. Clean the coil and the pan. If this does not correct the problem, then a new coil is in order. Also vacuum the back of the fridg if it has exposed coils to increase efficiency.

My Carrier Infinity system Model FE4A is leaking water from the bottom of the unit on to the basement floor. How do I stop the leak?


have your HVAC technician check the pressures in your unit...sounds like you may have low pressure. You should NOT be having any ice build up to melt off.

Inside of the unit is a drain hole that will drain out water to the drip pan. The drip pan is located under the unit and it uses the heat of the motor to evaporate the moisture that collects in it. The drain hole is plugged. Go on youtube and you can watch a video on how to fix it. Very easy.

Unit is leaking water from somewhere


Upper drip pan drains clogged, water overflowing onto the floor.

Remove the rear cover of the unit and clean it thoroughly wit a vacuum. Let the unit fully defrost. Use a can of Air duster (for pc's) with the little hose on to clear the drain holes in the upper drip tray. Clean dirty evaporator fins with windex and toothbrush, flush with water. Excess condensate should now drain into the bottom tank instead of overflowing ontot he ground. Be sure to drain the bottom tank thoroughly. With the unit cleaned it should now vent condensate out the warm air duct rather than letting it build up in the unit.

Where is the drip pan on this refrigerator? do I have to empty itor does the coils evaperate it?


it's behind the bottom kick plate,some machines don't have one,the water drips on the floor near the compressor and no you don't do anything with the pan,if you're having a water problem you could have a clogged drain line,it's in the freezer,when the machine goes into defrost the ice melts and goes down the drain line to the drip pan,if that's clogged water will leak out and you'll see ice on the floor of the freezer,also a water line could be cracked and leaking but the water in the pan evaporates on it's own

JDC2389GES side by side fridge Water is leaking inside the freezer and pooling at the bottom.


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
Actually the leaking water is from the evaporator coil unit....(it is located at the back wall or underneath the freezer compartment). Under normal conditions,Self-defrost refrigerators usually dispose the water generated during the defrost cycle through a tube or channel that directs the water a pan (Known as Drip pan), commonly below the refrigerator unit....
The channel or tube is clogged and the water is leaking to the refrigerator/freezer unit, so you need to clear that blockage/contamination....Once the blockage is removed, the generated water will move through that channel/tube directly to the drip pan and there will no water on the floor in the refrigerator/freezer compartment. This is all you need to do....


Best of Luck,


Your token of appreciation in form of rating would be highly obliged,

My portable a/c continues to leak water from the bottom when in use. I have a hose attached to the spout in the back, but it still leaves a puddle and almost nothing drains out the back. It's a sunbeam...


It sound like the coil inside could be dirty. I have had the same problem with air handlers, when the coil is dirty or the filter is dirty it creates a back pressure and causes the condensation to drip off away from the condensation pan. Try accessing the coil on the inside see if it is dirty, if it is clean it lightly with soapy water and a brush and be carefull not to bend the fins on the coil. If it is clean double check the condensation hose and inlet for the hose for foreign matter.

Dripping water from pan or coils


If the a-coil is on the suction side of the blower, the drain line needs to be trapped. take enough hose to make a circle below the drain fitting and then into the drain. The blower causes a suction up the drain line if it is not trapped and will not let the water go out the hose.
