The water is coming from the top portion of the refrigerator section. the insulation between the freezer and the refrigerator is getting wet that is why the coldness of the freezer is transferring to the refrigerator trough the insulation foam. you can see droplets of water forming underneath the refrigerator section. sometimes you can see ice forming underneath also.

tnx 4 using fixya,

    you can lower the thermostat for a start.

    as the compressor cuts off more often, the insulation in between then would not cool very much and might eventually reduce the water droplets forming underneath.

    another solution could be to replace the insulation foam in between the two section, but this solution is quite hard to do plus the insulation is very hard to find in the parts department since they have not thought that this insulation would absorbe water and get wet and would initiate a problem.

    tnx again,

Mw Daewoo fridge freezer FRS-20321BE is leaking water copiously from the refrigerator I cannot see any source for this but puddles form and flow internally under the veg box. Help!


All depends on how much water is collecting. A lot of water indicated a leak from the ice maker. A small amount and it's probably a clogged condensate drain. Here's a YouTube video on a different brand showing a clogged drain, your may be similar (or not), but it might give you an idea as to where to look. Refrigerator dripping water inside FIX

Why is water pooling in bottom of fridge under veggie drawer.? Also freezing ice cubes in back part of cube drawer


Just above the veg drawers at the back is a channel that collects water when the fridge defrosts. It has a hole to drain the water which is blocked and the water is pooling under the drawers. Clear the hole with a drinking straw.

Water leaking daily from area below freezer, inside the fridge cavity. need to place containers to collect water and empty frequently.


sounds like outlet pipe is blocked at back of fridge unit, this is accessible from inside of fridge at the back and towards the bottom, remove any debris and feed through a relatively stiff piece of wire to unblock pipe, the idea of this is to take away excess water and feed it into a drip tray on top of the warm compressor where it then evaporates, however this can and does get blocked with food debris from time to time,.

Not draining properly,water under veg. bins


Pull the veg. bin draws out and you'll see a hole that could be clogged with food or frozen water. First, clear away food if there is any. Then, pour boiling water into the drain and watch the bottom of the unit where it should be draining into a pan which will evaporate from the heat of the compressor.

54409 // water accumulates under veg and fruit drawers?


Look inside at the back to see if there is a collecting troff which collectes the water runing down the cool plate. In the middle of the troff is a run off hole which takes the water outside to the back to an evaporation tray. if this hole gets blocked it floods the fridge and you know the rest. Some fridges have a looped plug which you pull out of the troff hole to clear the blockage. I know this as my fridge does this too.

Water leaks under veg bins.. Cannot tell where it is coming from. Accumulates slowly


This refrigerator look like mine (Picture).
Mine did the same thing. If it is the same then this is what I did.
Look under the there is a collection tray.
This tray collect the water.
At the bottom of the refrigerator (Inside where the water collect) is a cap.
The cap has cap would have holes or a slot that allow the little water to fall to the collection tray.
Mine has slots and was block up.
clean it out and that should do it.
The water should be able to fall to the tray at the bottom.
I do hope this help you.

Leaks water inside, under the veg bins. I am sponging it out daily. Sometimes leaks onto the middle shelf and will freeze up a nice puddle.


there is a tube on some of these model that goes through the back of the fridge and onto the bottom. It is usually up high (if not under the crisper s). If its close to the freezer compartment may have Ice blocking it. If its up high and behind a ceiling cover it could have dirt and gunk stopping it up. try a soda straw and push it in the open part of the hole. see if you get anything out. You say it freezes on the shelf in the fridge compartment (Im betting on Ice blocking the hole because this is way too cold for a refrigerator with veggies. Right?)

Warm water set inside fro a few minutes to hours with the door open or a hair dryer running in it for a few minutes may defrost it and solve the problem then it may come back if there is too much air from the freezer or the thermostat is keeping it running too long.

Hope this helps and if so please rate me accordingly and good luck
