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.

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

Frost in Freeze


Hi Frezer Frost.
It sounds like your defrost circuit in the refrigerator has gone south. This melts the ice off of the cooling coil in the freezer section every 8 - 10 hours of run time.
If you are old enough to remember the manual defrost refrigerators, that is why you had to defrost them occasionally. The ice layer on the coil acts as an insulator, preventing the coil from working properly.
