SOURCE: Water collects, runs alot, food freezes

Sounds like the defrost timer may be out of whack. Is the temp control turned all the way up?
Are the coils clean? Are the door seals sealing?
Are the penguins still working when you close the door.
Hope these help,
Matt

SOURCE: samsung fridge model srs535nw service manual

Behind the white plastic section at the back of your freezer (4-6 screws to remove) there is a drain hole at the bottom. This will be frozen and prevent water from defrost from draining away - we have exactly the same problem. defrost the freezer and ensure this drain is no -longer frozen. I used hairdryer and warm water to clear. You may have a secondary problem of defrost cycle going wrong - the most common replaced part is R1098 or something like that a defrost sensor which is easy to replace by removing the top rear plastic section - 3-4 screws to remove and it simply pulls out as it is lightly clipped in. I was worried about breaking it but it came out with a bit of a tug. The defrost heating element is another part which can pack in. I'd replace the other part first and see how it goes.

Water collecting on top shelf of refridgerator


Your defrost drain line in the freezer has stopped up. The defrost water is coming in through the air vent to the fresh food section.
Turn the unit off and use a hair dryer to defrost the drain hole located behind the freezer panel.

Water collects under the deli/meat tray of our Samsung RF267 side by side refrigerator and freezes there. Where does the water come from and how to resolve the problem? Help ALSO Our Samsung front...


The water is coming from a leaking water tank behind the deli/meat tray. It only leaks when you use the water dispenser. You will need to disassemble the deli drawer to get to the water tank and replace the water tank. FOR THE WASHER, call Samsung for service. You may have a control board problem.

SMELL COMING FROM LARDER FRIDGE,FOUND THE PROBLEM AT BACK WHITE TRAY ON TOP OF MOTOR A BUILD UP OF SLIME , FINDING A PROBLEM TO CLEAN TRAY,


This is the defrost water that collects on the collection tray - white tray on top of motor. Normally over a period of time the water evaporates off but if there is collection of dirt it can smell. So you need to PULL out the tray - use a screw driver to release the lock and the tray will come out which can be cleaned using a water jet and detergent.

Water drips down from Freezer. The water is coming


Since you said the water supply is shut off, the likely culprit is a clogged drain tube that connects the defrost tray to the water collection pan for evaporation at the bottom of the fridge.

The source of the clog is usually either mold growth or more likely, ice build up. Regardless of which, if you access the defrost heater in the freezer section, you can thaw ice that has collected in the tray and if needed, use a turkey baster to direct a hot stream of water at the point the hose attaches to the tray and treat the hose for mold, below.

Once cleared of ice, mix a small amount (5 or 6 oz) of water and 1/2 to 1 ounce of bleach and direct down the tube to kill any mold / growth. Be careful not to use to much or overflow, as clean up will be difficult due to the bleach mixture.

The next thing to do (if icing up) is to determine why. A careful check of the defrost circuit should be done. Otherwise, you'll be doing this over - and it may start to affect the temperatures in the frozen and fresh food sections of the fridge.

I hope this helps!

Water collecting on bottom of 13 year old fridge


All refrigerators create water when their cooling coils shed frost build-up - that water typically collects in a tray under the fridge body through a drainage tube that exits from a collection trough inside the fridge under the coil through the back of the fridge housing.

First check the tray to be sure it is not accumulating food particles which ultimately can produce molds. Clean any water from that tray first, then look for the tube exiting on the back of the fridge see whether there is any moisture at the end of the tube under the fridge and notice whether the tray has had any recent moisture. Chances are the tube is either plugged or similarly any connector through the fridge wall.

Now, be CAREFUL not to puncture the hose or the connector with a sharp instrument however the drain path must be cleared. Try blowing through the drain inside the fridge with a straw, then add a small amount of baking soda into the collection trough, adding a small amount of water to dissolve and allow this to gradually drain out normally. Only detach the outside tube if the problem has not been resolved in this manner. The tube can be replaced easy enough, the connector through the back is another question - see you parts dealer if it has been compromised.

Good luck!

Water leaking into fridge


Unless you have a lot of confidence in your ability as a handy person and plumber, it may be better to leave this to a pro. Here's the story.

When the freezer automatically defrosts, water from the melted ice collects into a tray behind the back panel of the freezer. There is a drain in this tray, and the drain empties into a pvc tube that carries the water down into an evaporation tray that extends from front to back on the bottom right side of the refrigerator. A fan blows air over the evaporation tray to dry the water in the tray before the next defrost cycle.

Over time, the drain tube gets partly clogged with gunk, the water in the upper collection tray doesn't drain completely into the lower tray, and when the defrost cycle ends, the water still in that upper tray freezes. After a few defrost cycles, enough ice forms in the collection tray so it blocks the drain completely, and this plug won't melt during the defrost cycle. Now every time there is a defrost cycle, water collects, overflows, and drips down through the air channel at the back of the fridge into the refrigerator section.

The fix is to clear the drain tube leading from the upper collection tray to the lower evaporation tray. Here's how (if you have the know-how to tackle the job):

First, move the fridge away from the wall, unplug it, and remove the fiberboard panel that runs across the the bottom back. From the front of the fridge pull out the trim grill that runs across the bottom. Locate the evaporator tray on the right, but don't remove it yet.

Empty the freezer, and be sure to safely store the removed items in another freezer, or an insulated cooler, if you can complete the job in an hour or two. Be careful with ice cream and such, which cannolt be allowd to defrost, even partially.

Remove the ice maker if you have one, remove the screws holding down the bottom panel of the freezer, remove it, and remove the screws holding the back panel, and remove it.

Leave the refrigerator door closed, to keep the food in it from spoiling. If this job is going to take you more than an hour or two, move the food in the fridge to another fridge.

Now you need to let the freezer defrost (a hair dryer will make it go faster, but don't let it get wet), and sponge out all the water, There will remain an ice plug in the drain at the bottom of the collection tray at the back. Use hot water to dissolve the ice plug, use a drinking straw inserted into the drain (don't let it drop!) to be sure the ice plug is melted.

You still have to clear the plastic drain tube of collected gunk. This is like snaking out a drain pipe. I found that 8 feet of 1/8 pvc tubing works well. Before you clear the drain tube, remove the lower evporation tray. There is a finger hole at the front. Use it to lift the tray up and forward (be carelful, it may contain water).

Put the pvc "snake" down into the drain in the upper collection tray, and gently work it down through the drain tube. You are done when the snake emerges from the bottom of the drain tube, at the back bottom of the fridge, above where the evaporator tray sits. . Snake up from the bottom, and then back down again from the top, to be sure the drain tube really is clear. Replace the evaporator tray, and slowly pour 2 cups of water into the collection tray at the top, and confirm that it drains quickly and completely into the lower tray.

Empty the lower tray, replace it, and reverse all the disassembly steps.

This is not a permanent fix, because the drain tube could clog again, but should be good for a few years before you have to repeat this operation. At least now you know the cause and the fix, and can deal more effectively with a repair tech, even if you don't tackle the job yourself.

Freezer coils freezeup fresh food side gets warm


If the freezer is on top then empty out the freezer and remove the bottom and back liner of the freezer compartment usually phillips screws. In the back you will see the freezer coils along with a defrost element. Below these two items u will see a drip tray that collects water from the coils on defrost cycle, in the center of the pan will be a drain hole that connects to a hose that leads to a pan under the refrigerator.Normally the water is collected there and evaporated. The hole in the tray in the freezer is clogged. Thaw it and clean it until you can pour water in it and it goes to the pan down below. please rate me
