The drain is clogged.

If you want to DIY then here it goes:

Some models have access to the drain by an elbow on the outside back of the Ref. Disconnect the drain line here and if you find the clog, great. If there is no visible drain line and elbow on the outside then...

Hopefully you can access the drain in the back top center of the fridge. This will require removing plastic covers, usually a few screws is all you have to deal with. You must get everything removed so you can see the drain hole in the back wall then you can use a tube and a little air pressure to clear the drain from that point down. If this is clear and you don't find any cloggs from that point down then the clog is at the top of the drain which is in the freezer.

This is going to require a little more work.
1. Take everything out of the freezer, put it in a cooler or just pile it in the sink.
2. Take the icemaker out.
3. Take out the back panel so you can see the cooling coils.
4. The drain hole is in the center directly under these coils but may not be visible because of ice in the drain pan.
5. Use a hair dryer to melt this ice and clear the drain so water flows down.

Mw Daewoo fridge freezer FRS-20321BE is leaking water copiously from the refrigerator I cannot see any source for this but puddles form and flow internally under the veg box. Help!


All depends on how much water is collecting. A lot of water indicated a leak from the ice maker. A small amount and it's probably a clogged condensate drain. Here's a YouTube video on a different brand showing a clogged drain, your may be similar (or not), but it might give you an idea as to where to look. Refrigerator dripping water inside FIX

Water collecting inside fridge, under meat drawer


Yes most responses are the freezer drain even if it is in the bottom freezer. If the drain is blocked water will build up anywhere inside your refrigerator only because it has no place to go during the defrost. Defective door seals can also can make the problem much worse.

Water accumulating inside fridge bottom make GE Model #gta18pbnaww


That's normal especially if you tend to leave the door open alot. Moisture from the outside air condenses and drips to the bottom. Also, if the refrigerator is automatic self-defrosting it will melt ice collecting around the refrigerator and the resulting water will collect at the bottom. Check under the food drawers for a drain hole. If it is clogged, clean it out. If it doesn't exist, periodically sponge out the bottom under the drawers.

We have a slow water leak in our fridge. The water pools under the bottom 2 produce drawers.


On most newer fridges, there is a very shallow 'V' shaped collection channel at the back of the fridge just above the bottom drawers, this is for condensate collection. In the middle of this channel there should be a hole, this quite often gets clogged, and over flows, hence the water at the bottom of the produce drawers, clear the hole and it should cure your leak, worth checking every couple of months.

condensation with collect on any shinny surface,have you put uncovered food in the fridge or left the door open,refilled the fridge with food from the mall,especially veg,or is it very humid at this time.also check door seals for fit all round as an air leak will not help.

I have a zanussi ZI 920/9K and the fridge has water under the salad drawer every day but the drain hole is not blocked - what else might it be?


two solutions
1...a door seal leak
2...you are puting food in that is warm or not covered and its the condensation from these that collects on the shinny surface of the salad drawer.....
remember,every time you open the door warm air from the kitchen replaces the cold air inside the fridge,it does not dry the air like a dehumidifier....
hence water droplets gather.....

Model 363.9668513 water collects under the fruit


this is because the plastic is shiny and attracts condensation,only "cure "is a piece of kitchen towel under drawer to mop up as/when.(when you open door all the cold air drops to the floor and is replaced with warm moist air from the kitchen.hence condensation.
