Where is the water coming from? unless you have a leaking ice maker fitting on the back or somewhere else, the most likely cause would be a stopped up defrost drain. check inside the freezer on the back wall and floor. if you see ice you will need to unstop the drain. (most newer models don't have a removable drain pan)

How do i remove the drip tray? Water is leaking onto my hardwood floor.


The drain pan in machines these days aren't designed to be removed, but the issue I am having is I've never seen one full unless I was pouring water down a drain or the drain was clogged and thawed out. Are you sure thats what your problem is? Have you looked in the freezer floor inside to see if there is ice built up there all the way to the front?

How do I remove the drip pan from under the freezer? It's full and leaking onto the floor?


There should be a decorative kick panel underneath that will snap out revealing the drip pan which will then slide forward and out to pour the water off.

Water drips onto carpet on passengers side front foot area. Can be seen dripping from plastic air ducting above foot area. how to figure out how its getting in. Have replaced windshield.


You can only have 2 issues dripping water onto the passenger floor board. First being a clogged drip line for the ac evaporator. The other is a leaking heater core. Figuring out which one is the issue is fairly easy.

If your vehicle has anti freeze in it when you turn the defrosters on it will smell sweet. If it does you have a leaking heater core. If it does not then the drip line is clogged.

To clear the drip line get under the vehicle and snake the drip line on the firewall. It usually is a 90 degree rubber or plastic piece on the passenger side about a third of the way up the firewall. A leaking heater core means it has to be replaced and not really a job for someone that is not exsperienced.

My refrigerator has a leak behind the drawers on the inside . I have since had to put a towel at the bottom of the drawers or it will start leaking down the front and onto the floor every couple of days....


Moisture condenses out of the cold air inside the fridge. Many refrigerators have a drain tube in the bottom to allow the condensate to run into a drip tray under the refrigerator (behind the trim panel on the bottom) where it evaporates. Over time this tube can get clogged by food particles and the water backs up, eventually running over the bottom edge onto the floor. You can use a straightened out coat hanger or other stiff wire to clear it out. This should get the water back into the tray where it belongs.

Leaking water on floor, even without water hooked up. Seems to be coming from under the fridge


Your freezer defrost drainage tube may not be routed to the evaporator tray under the refrigerator. If this is the case, humidity condensed from the freezer, then drained down the tube will be dripped onto the floor.
The second theory is that the drainage tube could be blocked. Humidity in the freezer is removed from the air sent to a drainage tray, at the rear of the freezer, which has a drainage tube which carries the water to an evaporation tray at the bottom of the refrigerator unit, on my GE. if the drainage tube is blocked, the water will find another route. Check the drainage tube after you find it. First try inspection. if there is standing water in tray in the freezer, use a flexible wire to clear the tube.
Good luck!

Ford Fiesta 2003 1.3 If I run the aircon water leaks onto the floor of the drivers side (by the pedals, alot of water.


In the dashboard,set down low is a driptray.It collects water that comes off the aircon.It has a hose (sometimes 2) that drains the water out of the car via the firewall so it drips onto the road.This is blocked or the tray has a buildup of gunk.The hose is about 1/2 inch thick.If you lay on the floor where it leaks with a torch you should find it.Or look in the engine bay,just to the left or right of centre(which side leaks?)and backtrace it into the car.You may find the inside hose has fallen off allowing the water to drip inside.Hope this helps you

Water leaking


Hi

There are several things to check for: The condensing defrost tray under the fridge can crack or develop a hole and leak onto the floor. A door gasket not closing properly may cause sweating and leak onto the floor. Some fridge's have a humidity switch inside the fridge that should be turned on to prevent sweating on the center bar between the fridge and freezer section. If your fridge has developed a frost free failure problem, often the frost will travel down the suction line at the back of the fridge and drip water on the floor. The heat exchanger tubing can separate and also sweat and drip on the floor. A kit to repair a separated heat exchanger line, comes with instructions as well. Ice maker and chilled water fill lines can crack and leak as well, this is fairly common with the plastic lines as they can dry out and crack.

Please revert for any clarification.
A Fixya rating would be appreciated if you found this to be helpful.
