I can see water/ice trace from the back of the freezer section and I have ice building up on the bottom of the freezer section. There must be a leak but need some tips as to how to look for them and fix it.

    There is water flowing from the bottom of the refrigerator, there is also a layer of ice on the bottom of the freezer.

    Water is running down the back of the freezer causing ice to accumulate at the bottom.

    Our model number is MSD 2454GR. Looks like we have a very similar problem as described by others here. Our situation: ice is beginning to accumulate at the bottom of the freezer compartment. Not much, but after a week or so it's about 1/10" thick. You can tell by looking at it that it has flowed from the back. Water seems to be dripping down the RH back side of the lower compartment by the lower vent. Our "replace filter" light has been on for a while now, so I was wondering if anyone had experienced this same condition + ice problem, and to solve it, had just replaced the filter. If my hunch about the filter is not correct, then we'll follow the suggestion about clearing out the drain. But -- if anyone has had any other experiences with this problem -- additional observations would be appreciated.

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 leaking from bottom front, ice in bottom of freezer


Your drain line form the evaporator is clogged. Locate the drain under the back and use a wet/dry vacuum to unclogged drain. The drain line can be also blocked by excessive ice buildup from incomplete defrosting. Remove frozen foods and open door to freezer section and remove power and manually defrost unit. Once ice is stopped melting try vacuuming the drain line again. Sometime drain line gets clogged with debris such as garden peas, corn, wrapping and the like. Once drain line is cleared the water and ice on the freezer bottom should stop forming.
Hope this helps

Discovered ice build up on bottom of freezer in side by side KitchenAid Superba. Figure it is a defrost drain clog.... How do clear the clog?


I have ice in the bottom of my freezer section also in an older one of these, but I have traced it down to some sort of leak in my ice maker line. It only occurs when the ice maker is making ice, and not when the ice tray is full. Mine also leaks through the front door seal and into the floor if I don't keep scraping out the ice from the bottom (to clear out the "reservoir" that holds the water till it turns to ice).

I came on this site looking for a way to locate the leak and get to it. You might try scraping out the ice and turning off the ice maker for a while and see if the ice no longer forms at the bottom. Then at least you have localized it a little!

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 fridge-freezer (FFM90) has ice forming in the bottom of the freezer section under the last drawer. Why is that and what can I do?


This is due to excessive condensation and in bottom freezers due to proximity of the compressor.There is some residual water falling on to the drawers which forms the ice and this must be prevented. make sure that the frozen foods that was stocked did not loose water into the bottom till we can suspect the freezer. Also frequent opening of the freezer will allow for condensation whicj must be wiped out at intervals.
This can prevent some ice formation and also check if there is leak from the evaporator trays to the freezer during defrosting.

Water leaking on the floor


Clean the drain pan and drain line in the back of the freezer section underneath the evaporator coil. Make sure water drains when you pour it in.
Good luck! :)

Refrigerator Freezer has ice forming in the bottom inside freezer section. It appears to be leaking down the back inside compartment. The top section has an ice maker and water dispenser but I haven't had...


I believe you just described a defrost condensate blockage that is causing the leaking. There are many reasons for this happening for example water leaking from a water supply line for the dispenser or ice maker, a in the defrost pan, water leaking and draining through the refrigerator cabinet, but most are caused by a defrost drain line blockage. Below is a link that may be helpful so try to take it all in and use the parts that most refer to your specific problem, Thanks Sea Breeze

Water leaking and ice in bottom shelf of freezer


Chances are you have a bad seal around the door if it's leaking from the inside which causes the ice to form as well, or if it's leaking from under the freezer you lave a bad heating element that evaporates the water collected in the pan under the freezer or you have a clogged hose that goes to the pan under the freezer which also causes the ice to form because the water has no place to go. Defrost and try to find a way to blow out the hose that goes from your freezer to the pan under the freezer and that should take care of your problem.

Leaking water


In back of the refrigerator behind a removable panel you will find a hose going into the drain pan under the refrigerator. Check and make sure there is no obstruction in the hose which would back up water into the freezer. After the drain hose is cleared the freezer should be defrosted and ice cleared from the drain area in the back. You can direct some hot water with some bleach in it through the drain to insure it flows into the pan.
