SOURCE: ice buildup in freezer drip pan and water overflow

Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.

SOURCE: leaks from under frig. I think it is the hose

In the freezer section. Behind the lower rear wall is the coils and just below that is a drain. If you will remove any ice and use a coat hanger or screw driver to push down through that hole you should be able to get it unclogged. Take a small cup of water to verify that you have it unstopped and your done.

Thanks for asking.

Water leaking under fridge


a contant runing of water is most likely a leak in the ice maker supply hose , an intermitant drip of water is a drip pan thats full in bottom of fridge (closest to floor ) this water comes from the auto defrost cycle most times this water evaporates away , but as fridge gets older it makes more frost that needs melted hence more water ,sometimes it over comes the pan and runs to floor , a good flashlight and getting down to look underneath usually tells you source of leak

Inside of the unit is a drain hole that will drain out water to the drip pan. The drip pan is located under the unit and it uses the heat of the motor to evaporate the moisture that collects in it. The drain hole is plugged. Go on youtube and you can watch a video on how to fix it. Very easy.

Mostly the drip-pan can't be accessed from the front.

The drip-pan isn't.
It is in fact an evaporator. It collects the considerable amount of water from the auto defrost function and holds it until the heat from the motor and compressor can evaporate it. The water is transferred from the inside by a drain tube.

A blocked drain tube is not unusual and is generally fairly simple to clear. Often it is a stray vegetable that causes the trouble and sometimes it is a buildup of ice. If the water cannot escape a wet floor is usually the result.

Our fridge recently suffered from the same trouble. I used a plastic covered wire coat hanger to clear the drain of ice - very carefully...

Maytag Fridge MFF2558VEM is leaking water from bottom of unit. Suspect a clogged drain hole. Need to access the drip pan and clear drain hole. Drip pan is not behind the toeplate grill at the front


Fridge has a design issue. Duckbill drain valve clogs. They have a new ptrap drain replacement but you have to ask for it, as customer service will deny a problem exists. Here is the service bulletin which was supposed to be for internal use only! https://docs.google.com/file/d/0BzIiBNwRIV4NNWJNNmx0andROGs/edit

Water leaking from bottom of refrigerator also thumping noise off and on


The water leaking for the bottom is most likely the drip pan leaking. The pan is to catch the water from when the freezer goes into defrost and melts the ice on the coil. The thumping noise happens when the compressor comes of the springs inside the compressor shell. this can happen when moving the unit or laying on its side during a move. The drip pan can be fixed. You just have to find the leak. The compressor can live a long time like it is It will just thump.
I hope this helps

Water is leaking under my refrigerator


1)--In some refrigerators, the water from the defrost cycle is intentionally directed down the back wall of the refrigerator, where it then flows to the bottom of the refrigerator compartment and out to a small drain - usually located beneath one of the drawers at the bottom of the refrigerator. If the drain becomes clogged or blocked, the water may back up. To fix this problem, clear the obstruction. 2)--If the refrigerator is equipped with a water dispenser on the freezer door, check if the water line to the dispenser is leaking. Also, check the drip pan to be sure it isn?t out of place, broken or cracked.
