    I have been experiencing a problem intermittently whereby water drips from the inside of my fridge; it comes from a little vent thing above the dairy compartment. I would say it has happened 3-4 times in the last 3 weeks. At first I thought it may have been caused by the door not being closed properly, but this does not seem to be the case. All else is working well.

    Hi, I'm having the exact same problem with my fridge (Whirlpool WRX38RWH6). Ever since the weather got a bit warmer water keeps dripping out of the top vent. I will give your sollution a go - thanks : )..... I've also noticed that the fridge isn't as cold as it should be - I've put the Temperature control on the coldest but it still isn't cold enough. The temperature control dial has an option of "WPL(38/42)" ....do you know what that means?....any way of getting the fridge colder or do you think its just broken!

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

Remove rubber elbow inside top left of fridge and check water drains from here to tank at back of unit. If clear, ice is clogging drain under freezer to elbow which is most common problem. Carefully remove the evaporation slots cover. This has 4 large clips on long slot side and 8 small clips on square hole side. Start at middle and squeeze and lift from small clip side until it pops. Continue each way until removed. Time is required to allow defrosting between this point and rubber elbow. Fans, warm water and other gentle assistance will help but this could take 5hours or more, When water flows from front to elbow, reassemble, restart and restock.

Have you tried it after letting it defrost for a couple of days . It sounds like it was just frozen up. If the freezer is still working then it is the defrost drain is frozen up.

Whirlpool refrigerator is not cooliing refrigerator half not sure evaporator fan working model et1mhkxmb08


If the fan is working, then there is likely ice build-up in the vent between fridge and freezer. If you remove the farthest rear panel in the freezer and then pull the venting in the fridge and clean out all the ice, then the air can flow to the fridge again. It is also recommended to keep coils and compressor free of dust and make sure the drain hose is allowing water to drain into the drip tray in the back bottom of the unit.

Water dripping from freezer onto top shelf of fridge with ice buildup back of freezer


the defroster isn't close enough to the drain to be effective. remove the back wall of the inside of the freezer, remove the excess ice. clear out the ice from the drain using hot water and a turkey baster. there is a kit from whirlpool that uses a piece of metal and a screw around the defrost rod, but I found out that a piece of 14 gauge solid core wire with the insulation stripped off works great too. stick the stripped wire into the drain, 2 to 3 inches, and wrap the rest around the defrost rod.

Water periodically comes from the underside of refrigerator


This is probably water resulting from the defrost cycle. Normally the water drips into a pan under the fridge and evaporates. You probably have a leak in the drip pan.

Water under crispers in my fridge


If the freezer is on top then empty out the freezer and remove the bottom and back liner of the freezer compartment usually phillips screws. In the back you will see the freezer coils along with a defrost element. Below these two items u will see a drip tray that collects water from the coils on defrost cycle, in the center of the pan will be a drain hole that connects to a hose that leads to a pan under the refrigerator.Normally the water is collected there and evaporated. The hole in the tray in the freezer is clogged. Thaw it and clean it until you can pour water in it and it goes to the pan down below. please rate me

Model GE TBX16SPCL Water dripping from vent at top of fridge compartment. Fridge and freezer regulating temp properly. No other issues. The dripping water is very cold. Thanks, Michael


Michael, I live in an apartment that has this model. I had a similar problem that the apartment maintenance man concluded was a clogged vent. I don't no precisely what he did to fix it but it involved opening the vent compartment and cleaning it out. Be sure to take everything off the shelves of the refrigerator before your start because it makes a mess. Good luck.
