Frigidaire FRT18IL6D Water is leaking from the freezer onto the top glass shelf. Could my drain tube be clogged? If so, how do I unclog it so that the water flows directly down to the drain pan? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Why is it leaking water onto top shelf


Most modern fridges have an automatic defrost that works by draining into a sort of funnel above the back of the top shelf.
The funnel is connected through the back of the fridge to a rubber drain tube that goes down the outside of the back to a heated evaporation tray under the fridge,
The hose and/or funnel can get clogged with disgusting yucky stuff, and the water spills over the top of the funnel onto the top shelf.
The fix is to clean all the bits. It's usually no big deal to take apart.
I have resorted to blowing through the tube from the bottom end and then cleaning up the mess, and brushing my teeth. Quite revolting but, that's the price I paid to become an expert.

My fridge is leaking water from the top shelf down to the bottom and onto the floor


You most likely have a clogged defrost drain tube in the freezer, this diverts water through the damper into the fridge section in units with the freezer on top... Remove the back wall of the freezer and look beneath the tubing and you will see an ice pad... Use a turkey baster and warm water to reveal the drain hole, then force warm water down it until it is clear... Have some towels handy. Whirlpool Refrigerator Drain Strap 819043

I believe it would be the defrost drain from the freezer is clogged. remove 4 screws in Refrigerator section which hold light bulb, temp sensor assy, etc.
there is a drain pan built in to the rear of this unit, and a tube which goes from the pan to the base of fridge. be removing the unit, you will be able to see if the drain pan has clogged, or if you need to carefully snake the drain tube.
Our unit the pan clogs every couple years.

WATER IS DRIPPING FROM THE TOP OF THE FRIG ONTO MY SHELFS. iM NOT SURE WHERE ITS COMING FROM. iT IS NOT THE ICE MAKER BECAUSE I SHUT THAT OFF. aNY SUGGESTIONS


Completely pullout the shelf and throw the water. Look for a clogged drain tubing inside the refrigerator. Often it is not unnoticeable because it is fill with water. Unclogged it by using flexible, solid wire or flexible bamboo stick, just long enough until it penetrate the bottom of the drain pan tubing.
When your already do it, rinse it with water (the drain tubing), throw the water on the drain pan and clean it. Wipe any wet with rags and you'll done.
I hope my suggestion help you.

LEAKS WATER ON TOP SHELF OF UNIT


You most likely have a stopped up drain in the freezer. When the freezer goes into defrost, the water drains out and down the back of the unit. Into a pan located on top of or close to the compressor. You will need to unclog the drain.

Fridge is dripping directly onto top shelf. It is


Hello, this sounds like you have a blockage in the drain tube, remove panel back/bottom of freezer..you may see ice build up...melt ice with hair dryer/heat gun...you will see a pan below evaporator...melt ice in pan...dry water up in pan with paper towel...now you should see a hole in pan that leads to drain tube...pour some hot water in pan..wait a couple minutes..mop up water and repeat this step 2-3 times....once you have done this find some flexible curtain wire or electrical wire..poke down the hole until you see the water drain..now it is clear..put back panel back and you are good to go. The reason you see water in the fridge is because the water has been leaking into the freezer and down the vent into the fridge instead of running into the drain hole...Please feel free to comment again if you have any other question.

Water leaking in refrigerator on shelves, drawers, and under draw


common issue.....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

Water gushed out freezer door, possible solenoid problem?


The drain is clogged. The drain is usually located inside the freezer on the bottom shelf to the rear. Use a meat baster and a solution of 1 tsp. baking soda and 2 cups of hot water-not boiling to unclog the drain. You probably also have about 1/2 inch of ice build-up on the bottom shelf. This will have to be removed first.
