Water pouring out of front of refrigerator

About every two weeks there is quite a bit of water pouring out of the front of the refrigerator. I take out the drawers - mop up water on the bottom - where is it coming from? Icemaker was replaced about a week ago and it just happened again.

I had the same problem with mine. I was pulling it apart to try and find where the water was coming from when I happened to notice along the back wall closer to the bottom is a sort of ledge or track sticking out. if you look at the center of that yopu will see a tube that runs down and sticks through the bottom of the frig. I took a goof look at that and noticed it was blocked from draining and full of gross scummy looking water. I got a goof round brush and cleaned it and cleaned the tube out and its fine. Also the bottom of the tube can just be pulled out of the hole . It sticks through there and drains into the pan under the refrigerator..

I bought my refrigerator in July 2011. For the last month I have found water on the floor in front of the grill. There is no water in the back. Also have found sheet of ice under the basket. Is there

It looks like your condensate drain is plugged behind the rear panel in back of the freezer. Remove the panel and pour hot water in the drain area. this will be messy and a lot of towels will be needed, but the drain will defrost. Do this until water flows down the drain. Most newer refrigerators do not have a removable drip tray. the tray is part of the compressor mounting area. Some still have a tray but it is bit hard to remove.

I have Samsung RS2630SH Side by Side Refrigerator that is no longer making ice. It has not made ice in over a week.

Most times that is caused by the water control valve on rear of the refrigerator. Pour tap water into the ice maker and see if it will cycle after freezing. Let me know your results, Thanks Sea Breeze

The inside of the refrigerator get full of water condensation(lots)

It is not condensation

The drain at the bottom of the freezer under the coils is clogged. Remove Icemaker if you have one, remove bottom floor of freezer, remove back panel of freezer. Use hairdryer to melt ice. ALL ICE MUST BE REMOVED. Use hot water and a turkey baster to get ice out of drain hole located about middle under coils. Be patient, do not chip ice with sharp tool. After ice is removed pour hot water down drain hole. Water must come out in drain pan under refrigerator(you may have to take front grille off to get to pan)

If Ice returns after a few weeks, you need to look at defrost thermostat which is usually clipped on cold coil at back of freezer. This part or the defrost timer could be defective.

Smell under the unit, kenmore elite model number 44703

Hi: Not knowing your model number I would look where the milk was spilled and see if there is a hole. Possibly behind a panel for the defrost water. If so pour a little clorox bleach ane water in it. If not look for any cracks in the liner of your fridge. Those will expose the foam insulation to absorb the milk and cause odors. Clean them and seal them with teflon tape or a repair kit from the manufacture. On the off chanch the mild spilled to the front of the fridge and leaked behing the front grill the coils there are quite warm and will spoil milk fast. Pull the grill off and clean. I hope this helps, Jeff

Ice in Refrigerator Section

there are 2 possibilities. first the drain is blocked causing water to overflow from the defrost water gulley at the bottom rear of the inside of the fridge. this can form ice as it is close to the division between fridge and freezer. second, the .fault of ice growth can be caused by breakdown of the cabinet insulation. of the two, the first is the moree likely. to test drain is cloear, pour a little water down the drain. if it does'nt flow freely, push something flexible down the drain hole till blockage is clear
