Question about Refrigerators
Suction line is freezing up and then when frig. cycles off it melts and runs water on floor. It is a frigidare FRT21HR6A
maybe,it can also be from real dirty condenser coils under the frig.clean your coils and see if this helps,also has freon ever been added to the frig.?

The problem was indeed a clogged frost water drain. I had to pull the frig out from the wall (found an incredible amount of dust accummulation in the alcove), then remove the vertical metal and horizontal cardboard covers to expose the drain catchpan. The 1/2" rubber drain hose end was only about 1/8" above the pan pointing directly into it perpendicularly. This was not enough clearance. There was a plug (formed by dust and water) in the end of the hose that came out easily when I 'roto-rooted' it with a screwdriver. The water flowed easily after that, but I went ahead and trimmed about 3/8" off the end of the hose and pushed it back into its slot. Then I cleaned as much as I could. The prevention is to keep the area behind the frig cleaned!

also check defrost timer,defrost thermostat. In
most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board.
If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

Shut the water off for one before it ruins all your floor. It probably has frozen and broken a line or the valve. You can go to this site and get a drawing on your fridge and parts if you need them.

SOURCE: Water on the freezer floor
The model number in this case is not important. The problem you are having is most likely a defrost drain blockage caused by several different reasons. If after removing the food try to see if you can find the opening at bottom of the freezer and most times hiding behind the rear panel. They are a problem only until they are cleaned out or the problem resolved. Sometimes the refrigerator leans a little and the water begins to pool on one side until it slowly reaches the drain opening and then slowly freezes the opening shut. Other times there is slime or gunk that needs to be cleared from the drain and once that is done the problem is resolved. Some people use a turkey baster and fill with hot water and clorox and force the trash out. Again the Clorox helps kill any slime that may slow down water draining to the defrost tray below the refrigerator during defrost. You can also push a rope through the opening. until it appears in the exit below refrigerator. And other cases where the water flow has not stopped at the ice maker and this is the problem. I am trying to rebuild a page that has some helpful information and will leave you a link shortly. Thanks Sea Breeze

That sounds like a blocked defrost drain,this tip i wrote expalins how to clean a defrost drain on a ref. with the freezer on top...its the exact same process when freezer is on the bottom,only difference is the freezer is on the bottom instead of the top.
