There is a drain located behind the back panel of the freezer. If you pull the back panel off, it will be underneath a unit that looks like the radiator of a car. This pan has a hole on the bottom that will occasionally freeze up. Pour some warm water in the pan and see if the water drains to the pan under the unit. If it doesn't, use hot water or a hair dryer to thaw it out.

Bottom freezer door will not close


a) Door may be mis-aligned on the track

Water is dripping out the bottom when you open the frezer door and when you go to get water


first thing to check would be the bottom and back of the inside of the freezer and see if you have any ice build up if you did this would be a defrost issue you can read more about this if you do have ice by clicking this link http://applianceoutletservice.com/appliance-care-tips/refrigerator-tips/refrigerator-defrost-system-information.htm another thing you can check is the door seals if you have a rip tear or pinch in the door seals this causes condensation to build up or if you also have water that is on the door there is a line that goes through the bottom of the hinge that brings water to the water dispensor you basicly need to find out where the water comes from remove the rear panel inside the freezer if you dont see ice just to double check there is a small drain hole under the condensor that sometimes also freezes up with ice in some units so look further into where the water is coming from and message me back if you have any further questions and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to help others in similar situations in the future Thanks Rick

There is layer of ice that has formed at the bottom of the freezer side. Due to this there is a leak of water that appears every two or three days. I cleaned the layer of ice once and after 2 or 3 weeks...


Sounds like the drainage hole is blocked with ice, i normally take the back cover off the freezer and at the bottom you will see a build up of ice at the bottom, turn freezer off and carefully remove as much ice as you can, then pour some boiling water over the excess ice and in the middle you will see a drain hole make sure water then freely flows down drain hole. Other than that you could try switching your freezer off for 24 hours to clear ice.

MY REFRIGARATOR IS LIQUING WATER ON THE FREZER COMPARMENT AT THE BOTTOM MAKING A BIG PIECE OF ICE NOW I HAVE PROBLEM TO CLOSED THE DOOR


Probably the drain hole inside the freezer in the bottom back wall is clogh,put hot water in it until melt the ice and keep putting hot water to make sure it goes through.When the drain is clogh the defrost water goes down to the freezer floor and freezes up and the drawer stick to the ice.

Water leaks out of freezer once or twice per day


is there water frozen on the frezer floor.if yes your defrost drain is froze over.it only happens a few times a day because happening when its going into defrost,the water melts on the frezer evaporater then should go in the drain.if blocked it then runs on floor.you could turn of your refer for 8 hours or so.or get to the bottom of frezer behind back frezer panel[remove]and use a hair dryer to thaw drain use a weed eater line with a knott on an end to push thru and pull out the other side.the knott would clean any stuff in the drain line.ps watch out for water and electricty.i hope this helps God bless,tom
