My Maytag side-by-side refrigerator/freezer Leak


There is a pan and drain hose under the freezer coil that is there to catch any water when the freezer goes into defrost. I feel strongly that is where you will find your leak.
I hope this helps.

My samsung rs2630sh, has water pooling at the bottom of the freezer. Water will also leak out of the until onto the floor. the ice buit up so much had to break it up just to get the bottom tray out. Any...


I have the same problem. Water from the defrost coil is not running out the outlet, but freezing in the defrost "catch" pan and outlet tube. Once water freezes, then water from subsequent defrost cycles, runs into the freezer floor and eventually out to the front or side. I don't have a permanent solution, but you can take the inside panel off with the four screws and see the problem. Chip out the ice dam and clear pathway with very hot water. I have read that lowering the freezer temp may prevent. Open to new ideas or permanent solutions. Good luck!

Water collecting and freezing in bottom of freezer


Hi, Remove the rear inside panel of the freezer and locate the drain hole under the evaporator coil. Remove the ice and flush the drain hole with hot water to make sure it is free. You can try running a soft wire through the drain also.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Frigidaire leaking


the drain in the freezer compartment is frozen up you can remove all items from lower freezer and remove access panel on back of freezer compartment pick the ice out of the drain hole with a small screwdriver DO NOT USE SCREWDRIVER AROUND THE ALUMINUM COILS! once all ice is gone that you can see use hairdryer to blow into hole on medium heat. once it looks like it is gone take a small 1/4 plastic tubing and push down the hole to try to clear obstructions then run hot water down hole. if it still doesnt drain take rear access panel off of compressor area (back of refrig) look for drain hose and remove clamp take off and clean u might try this first. but you will have to remove ice from drain.

Smeg fride freezer leaking


HI Mark,
The evaporator drain is blocked causing the defrost water to pool, freeze and then leak onto your floor.
Clear out the freezer, then use a hammer to break up the ice on the floor. Now remove the rear panel. You'll see more ice build up. Don't use the hammer on it! (Too close to the coils for comfort) Use a hair dryer to warm up/melt the ice below the coils.
You'll see the drain hole now. Clear the drain by forcing a solution of water and bleach or water and baking soda into it 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.

Water leaking from freezer.


Either the inlet valve is stuck or the icemaker solenoid is shored.

Most likely the second one.

Water leaking from freezer.


instead of ice maker heres a more common problem


sounds like a drain clog in the freezer compartment above. remove the freezer rear panel and totally defrost the evaporator area, directly under the evap you see( under all taht ice) a small drain hole that has become frozen over, try defrosting with either a hair dryer( not a heat gun too much heat youl melt everything) or by pouring hot water donw the drain until you get a free flow of water down the tube. after its clear reassemble and you should be fine

Frigidaire, ice on floor of freexer


check to see if the defrost drain is not frozrn over or stopped up
this is the only way that water can get into the freezer
frost could and melt but dont think that i would check the drain at the bottom of the rear freezer panel if you see ice it is stopped up for sure
if all is clear there go to the ice maker, have had some that are overfilling and runnig over the ice maker into the bottom of the freezer
