THE MOST COMMON PROBLEM IS THAT THE DEFROST DRAIN BLOCKS UP AND CAUSES THE DERFOST MOISTURE TO OVERFLOW INTO THE REF SECTION. TO REMEDY THE PROBLEM YOU COULD LEAVE THE UNIT OFF FOR 24 HOURS AND THE ICE WILL MELT OUT AND FREE THE DRAIN, OR YOU COULD TAKE THE COVERS OFF AND REMOVE THE ICE AND TRY TO FORCE SOME VERY HOT WATER DOWN THE DRAIN WIT HA TURKEY BASTER. THE DRASIN IS LOCATED BEHIND THE EVAP COVER. OR YOU COULD CALL A SERVICE PERSON

Water at bottome of refrigerator


Under the draws in the back, there should be a drain hole that drains water down to the drain pan under the unit. Check to make sure it's not blocked with food or frozen water.

The drain hole is inside the freezer. you have to take the back panel off to get to it and thaw/clean it out. if this drain stops up it will cause water to run down the back wall of the refrigerator down to the bottom. you can pull the refrigerator out from the wall and see the plastic tube coming from the back of the freezer.

Refrigerator has water dripping inside the unit down the back


The problem is the drain is clogged. Remove the back panel in your freezer and at the bottom of the evaporator coil you will see a hole about ½” in diameter this is the drain tube. You might need to use some warm water to melt the ice and then run a wire being very careful not to puncture the hose and run it down the tube to free up the drain. This tube travel down to the bottom of your refrigerator to a pan sometimes located on top of the compressor or somewhere else down there. It collects the water there to evaporate. You can enter your model # at www.appliancehelponline.com for a diagram or illustration of your refrigerator. Not all models are available.

Fridge Leak


We fixed the leak by putting a pipe cleaner down the hole inside the fridge, at the back. This cleared the tube as it had gunk and grime blocking it. Now the water can run freely down the tube and into the drip tray which is at the back of the fridge above the motor.

Refridge leaking water inside it...


The condensate drain begins inside the freezer compartment behind the back panel and at the bottom of the evaporator coils. Every time the refrigerator defrost (about 3 times a day) the water needs to flow out the bottom of that pan in the freezer and into a plastic drain pipe to the bottom of the refrigerator into a pan on top of the compressor or side of compressor. Sometimes the drain is blocked inside freezer and there is a buildup of ice. But sometimes it is blocked near the opening that leads out of the fresh food compartment and then down to compressor tray/pan. If the blockage is near that exit then you will see a trail of water running down the back of the fresh food compartment and settle in bottom. The only solution is to slowly and carefully remove the drain pipe from the back and inside of refrigerator and clean it out. Let me know how you are doing on this and I will be here to help,Thanks Sea Breeze
