Water leaking inside my Frigidaire refrigerator

I know that the tray beneath the freezer freezes up. I take the cover off and remove the ice but I really want to know what is causing it. How do I stop the water from freezing up and blocking the drain. Model FRT18P6BSB2

In Frost free fridges The Heaters turn on in defrost mode via defrost timer every 6 ,12 ,or 24 ,Hour intervals.Where the drain is eg the plate you mentioned should have a wire element attatched underside foil covered sounds like it's open circuit [burn't out] .The main defrost element is obviously working because your getting the water there .The tray element should be available at any white goods part's store,hope that hels.

    Unkink the drain hose...

    I just opened up the back of my Frigidaire Side by Side counter depth to find the drain hose was bent and collapsed coming right out of the bottom of the freezer and the pan was dry as a bone. It doesn't look like my drain hose has ever drained a drop of water. The freezer bottom is full of ice And the rust and chipping paint under the bottom of the freezer door along with the mysterious puddles of water every morning means the drain system definetely never worked. Frigidaire should be responsible for this. This, along with the ice maker rebuild I had to do,... after ice was spilling all through the fridge. I actually had warrantty left on that one and called customer support in India to find out I could make the repair myself. Yep I had to do it. Frigidaire you failed.

    The tray has an electric element under it which looks like a length of wire usually stuck to the underside of the plate,and it should have to spade connectors that you can unplug it and replace it.(you will be able to tell it is blown by brown burn spots on the wire element. hope this helps,Regards ssantucc.

Leaking water from my refrigerator


Tubing in back of refrigerator leading to the ice tray is jammed with solid ice and whence maker timer calls for water back pressure prevents water from reaching the ice maker tray. Remove the tubing from the back and pull out the plastic tube that feeds the ice maker tray. Put the tube in hot water to melt the the and blow through it to make sure itis clear. When reinserting the plastic tube stick your head inside the freezer door and be sure the end of the tube overlaps the tray. The problem will be solved but the same thing will happen at some later date. I believe I solved this problem too. I got a roll of surgical adhesive bandage that's about a sixteenth inch thick and insulated the tube to prevent it from freezing again. It's been two months since and thank God it worked. The Frigidaire engineers could use this one.

How to fix a leak inside a refrigerator


Turn off the refrigerator. Remove the rear panel and floor cover from the freezer. You will see a lot of ice covering everything. Remove/thaw this ice.

In the back of the freezer, under the coils is a drain. When the defroster runs and melts the ice on the coils, the water is supposed to run down the drain to a pan where it is evaporated by a fan under the refrigerator. Often, this drain freezes shut. Then, the water has no place to go but though the vent into the refrigerator.

Melt the ice in this drain with a hair dryer or small quantities of hot water. You will know the drain is clear when the water level suddenly drops. Finish drying everything in the freezer and replace the panels.

Now, you will no longer have water dripping inside your refrigerator.

The problem you are having is caused by water leaking past the=> MJX42111401 Water Inlet Valve Change the MJX42111401 Water Inlet Valve and this will solve the water freezing between ice harvest. On most refrigerators this part can be found on the back of refrigerator and near floor, Let me know if you have other questions, Thanks Sea Breeze

Ice freezing up on bottom of freezer and water puddles in front


Two possibilities, ice maker leaking or the defrost drain is blocked with ice or another object. Unplug the freezer and remove the rear panel in back of freezer. At bottom of the evaporator coil is a tray that catches the defrost condensate and sends it to the pan beneath your refrigerator to be be heated by the compressor and fan heat produced from the condenser. The moisture is then returned to the air inside your home. If the drain is blocked with ice or anything between the freezer and the pan below, the condensate tray will overflow will end up inside your freezer or fresh food compartment. Questions? I will be here to help you, Let me know, Sea Breeze

Frigidaire refrigerator leaking water inside refrigerator


There is a plastic panel inside the frigidaire looking at the underside of the freezer inside the refrigerator compartment which holds the thermostate dial and the light fixture. remove the four 1/4 in hex head screws holding the assembly. pull the panel toward the front. you will expose the drain hose connection you can let it dangle from the plug wires or remove the panel completely, I worked with mine in place. look at the back funnel shape drain. just in front of that see a rectangular styroform collar which should be snug fit to match the underside. clean and dry all. there is a divider between the two funnel compartments, mine was separated between the plastic and the styroform. I used kitchen and bath tub caulking to seal the gap. and a little around the rectangle shape that fits to the underside. plug the wire back in if disconnected. reassemble the panel. that may fix it. good luck.

Water Pooling and freezing on floor of freezer


most likely you have a frozen drain in the freezer section so that whne your refrig defrosts the water runs out into the freezer compartment instead of the drain pan underneath. the fix is to flush the drain with warm water to clear the obstruction. the drain can be reached either by removing the cover in the freezer area or by back flushing the line from beneath the refrig.
