There is water collecting continuously at the bottom of my fridge under the crispers. Do you know how I can fix?


Most frost free refrigerators take water from the freezer so you do not have to defrost the freezer. That being said there should be a drain under the crisper. Check to see if it is clogged.
you may need to put something under the refrigerator to collect the water..

Water is leaking and collecting under the vegetable drawer. I took out the drawer and saw that the plastic drain tube seemed clogged. But I can't figure out how to clean it or if this is the problem/


The drain in the freezer behind back lower panel
needs opening. You can see it at the bottom of the back panel
underneath the evaporator coils. (The cold coils)
Run Hot water in the drain until it clears or use a hairdryer.
When the defrost melts the water it goes down the drain
If the drain is clogged with Ice or ? The defrost water
overflows into the ref. or freezer or on floor
Run Hot water in the drain until it clears or use a hairdryer.
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath

Every couple of days i have to empty the vegetable crispers of water and wipe underneath them where water also seems to build up. Thanks for any info!!


Your auto defrost drain is clogged somewhere, you will need to locate the drain hose and clean it out.

I have water collecting at the bottom of the frig under the crisper drawers. It appears to be coming from the freezer. Do I need to defrost and if so how?


It shouldnt need to be defrosted if it is a frost free refer. It sounds like your defrost drain line is clogged and backing up. Check the drain pan underneath refer.

For some time, water was accumulating on the floor


before you call check the bottom of your freezer, if it is full of ice, yuou more than likely have a clogged defrost drain
remove the back panel of the freezer and ensure the drain is free and clear,
check the fill tube of the ice machine to be properly installed

Water drips from freezer into refrigerator


The drain is clogged..you need to see if it has a rubber drain trap going into the back side of refrigerator. if so, twist and turn as you pull it out and clean it..replace and then check that drain is open..if no drain trap on back side of refrig..remove freezer wall and open drain from inside freezer..you need to clean out drain trough using hot water..a little messy,but effective

Water Is accumulating at the bottom of my fridge....below the vegetable/fruit crispers. The fridge however contiues to keep things cold.


The automatic defroster is supposed to drip down a tube and deposit water into a tray underneath the refrigerator. If that tube becomes clogged with either ice or mold, water is supposed to drip down the back of the refrigerator and go under the crispers, but there is a drain under there that takes it to the tray under the refrigerator. That drain might get clogged with mold or food.

So my suggestion is, try to clear out the drains under the crispers. More difficult, remove the floor of the freezing compartment and clear out the drain there. If it is severely clogged with ice under there, you have a defrosting problem.

In this hot, muggy weather you are likely to get lots of condensation. Good luck.

Refrigerator collects water at bottom, under the vegetable/crisper drawers, needing to be sponged out daily This fridge is a 17.7 cubic ft. no frost TBX18BG


at the top of the fridge section at the center back there is a drain assy/ tube for defrost water to exit the unit and go to the bottom of the outside, this is most likely clogged up. disassemble and clear drain line, hook back up and call me in the morning.

open the freezer compartment loo for ice build up on floor of frezer especally towards rear behind back panel. sounds like you have a clogged/frozen defrost drain tube. removing back panel of freezer will give you acess to drain trough, melt away the ice with a hair dryer, youll find a drain hole under there somwhere,pouring boiling water down the drain will clear it pretty quickly( i use a steam machine purchased from the infomercials)
