Re: Leaking water from freezer
Hello Welcome to fixya. I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,
you said, the water is leaking from the freezer and it is seen that there is quite
a bit of ice formation at the bottom of the freezer...even after defrosting it manually or removing the ice, it comes back very quickly.
If there is ice forming this means usually an air leak or the door left ope for to long. or low freon and not cooling enough.
Try pulling the plug for 5 minutes and then restarting the fridge which will reset the system. Let me know how it goes.

When refrigerators leak water it usally is a sign that the defrost drain found inside the rear of freezer and behind the rear panel of freezer has become clogged with ice or gunk. Sometimes the pan below refrigerator has a crack and allows water to leak onto floor. Please click here=>Leaking Refrigerators Just What may Be HappeningYou will at times see water build up inside freezer bottom especially on bottom freezer refrigerators. This will take a little reading over to understand what may be happening. Click Here=> Leaking Refrigerators I will be here should you have questions, Thanks Sea Breeze
Water in the drain overflowing can be the reason for the water spilling,it can be the defrost overflow or the leak from the evaporator tubing's to the drain. So drain off and check perhaps more condensation is the result of the overflow.
The icing can be related to water formation from the food or leak from the evaporator, high frosting can blow the water inside the freezer.
So set the freezer temp a little lower so that the freezer shuts off than to make it run continuously.
Check for a blocked defrost drain. Take the panel off at the back of the freezer section and find the small hole at the very bottom center below the cooling coils. Use hot (but not boiling) water and a turkey baster to flush it out until water runs through it. (it will go into the defrost drain pan, where it will evaporate) This will prevent water from comming out the freezer door and leaking onto your floor and running down your copper pipe to the basement.
Chances are you have a bad seal around the door if it's leaking from the inside which causes the ice to form as well, or if it's leaking from under the freezer you lave a bad heating element that evaporates the water collected in the pan under the freezer or you have a clogged hose that goes to the pan under the freezer which also causes the ice to form because the water has no place to go. Defrost and try to find a way to blow out the hose that goes from your freezer to the pan under the freezer and that should take care of your problem.
the ice maker is a common fault on those appliances expensive to replace but quite easly done with regard to the leak eithr the drainage tray is blocked or one of the water feed hose is disconnected or leaking call an engineer
The drain is plugged just below the coils in the back of the freezer. My fridge had the same problem and I found the hose (which can be accessed from the rear bottom) was plugged with mold. Also, i noticed the hose was connected to the water holding pan and was too close to the bottom and easy to plug. I removed it from the connector and just let it dangle in the holding pan.
