SOURCE: Water leaking from bottom left freezer/dispenser side

Take the metal back panel off the inside of the freezer, exposing the cooling coils. Below the coils, at the very bottom of the freezer compartment you will find a small drain hole. (Presently covered over with ice) Use hot (not boiling) water and a turkey baster to melt the ice and force hot water into the drain hole until the water runs out the drain hole (and into the defrost drain pan under the refrigerator) on it's own. This should be a Fix-Ya for your refrigerator.

SOURCE: Leaking water

Mine just starting leaking also. Water gathers in bottom, then freezessolid. then additional water leaks out. I've check ice maker and door water line. confirmed by turning off water supply. Water continues to build in bottom. I think it might be the defroster. somehow the defrosting water is not draining? Check your out and let me know what you find.

sounds like a leak where your incoming water line hooks to the water valves might just need to tighten the coupling or a mouse has chewed through one or both of the lines access the lines on the back and watch while some one gets water out the door to locate the leak

SOURCE: Jenn-Air freezer leak

Apparently it is the drain behind the freezer panel on the inside and it is blocked. It needs to be unblocked and cleaned. You remove the food and the rear panel on the inside of the freezer. With a hair dryer (carefully) remove all ice build up and then unblock the drain line going to the pan under the refrigerator. The drain line can be cleaned with bi-carb and hot water (not boiling).

Yes, you are correct, that is a drain. Use a turkey baster with hot (not boiling) water to flush out the drain tube until water will flow out into the drain pan under the refrig. (where the air blown over it will cause it to evaporate)

Ice builds up on floor of freezer apparently some leaking as my lamented floor is showing some damage. i have cut off water supply to icemaker and water tap thinking this was problem.


most likely you have a plugged and frozen defrost drain. check behind the bottom basket of your freezer section to confirm this you will find alot of ice build up. to repair you self:
  • unplug refrig.
  • unload freezer section
  • remove rear access cover (on jenn-air's there are 2 screws about mid way up they are painted white and arent very obvious).
  • clear all ice
  • flush drain hole with warm water. ( i use a turkey baster filled with hot water to get best results)
  • reassemble unit
  • reapply power
this should stop your water leak. thanks Peyton

Leaks at the bottom-daily water drains at different times


Things go back together in the reverse order.
In our Jenn Air JCD2B89GES side by side the freezer drain was clogged/frozen shut. It is in an aluminum tray that you access by taking out the shelves and then taking off the back panel inside the freezer (two 1/4' hex head screws.) You lift up the top plastic panel (with the "bulge" in it )and that lets you remove the lower plastic panel (the one with the louver vents at the bottom.) After melting the ice with small applications of hot water, the drain hole was visible. Again, apply some hot water, remove it, add some more, etc. and the drain opened and the water gurgled down to where it is designed to go (which I assume is the evaporator tray.)
I took the precaution of adding the suggested copper wire "prevention" mod described here.

One additional suggestion. If you have the ice maker I would suggest emptying out all the ice after you're done. In the short time it takes to unclog the drain, some of the ice will partially melt. I assume that when it refreezes, you'll have a big block of stuck together ice cubes to deal with. Of course, I did the "repair" with the unit unplugged.

Water collecting in freezer bottom


Hello, this sounds like you have a blockage in the drain tube, remove panel back of freezer..you may see ice build up...melt ice with hair dryer/heat gun...you will see a pan below evaporator...melt ice in pan...dry water up in pan with paper towel...now you should see a hole in pan that leads to drain tube...pour some hot water in pan..wait a couple minutes..mop up water and repeat this step 2-3 times....once you have done this find some flexible curatain wire or electrical wire..poke down the hole until you see the water drain..now it is clear..put back panel back and you are good to go. The reason you see water in the Freezer is because the water has been leaking into the freezer instead of running into the drain hole...If you need any further assistance please feel free to comment again. good luck! P.s Please don't forget to rate my solution thanks! Mike.

Water leak @ bottom front left with water turned off


this quite simple, inside the freezer compartment lower half there is a removable inspection cover, or what you may call the rear interior wall. remove this cover/wall and underneath the cooling coils is a drain hole for the defrosted water to escape to the pan located under the refrig. This hole is obviously blocked with some object, possibly just ice. As it is blocked the defrosted ice in the form of water cant exit the normal way so it is over flowing onto the freezer floor. everytime the defost element comes on more water will leak. solution is to clear the drain hose possible with hair dryer , or gently running a firm but flexible plastic tube through the drain tube to push any blockage on through. This has to be done very slowly and carefully.

HELP WITH WATER LEAK??


If you have turned the water off and it is still leaking out of the freezer side you may have a plugged drain. the drain is there as part of the defrost system to keep modern refrigerators frost free. When the machine goes into defrost and the heater in the freezer comes on it drains out the drain to a pan underneath and the heat from the compressor and the condenser fan underneath the unit evaporate it and the whole process starts all over again. every once in a while something will plug the drain on the bottom of the inside of the freezer side and when the heater kicks on to defrost the refrig the water cant go anywhere but to the bottom of the freezer and seeps out the front at the bottom of the door between the gasket and the refrig. check the drain...because if you have turned off the water and it is still showing up this could very well be your problem. Take the bottom shelves out of the freezer and look to the back and bottom at the middle sometimes you can see the drain and sometimes you have to remove the thin metal panel covering the back bottom half of the freezer,....inspect the drain hole and remove any obstructions or ice build up. if need be pour hot water into the drain to melt any ice that could be causing the obstruction to the drain. and the hot water should drain out of the frige.Write me back and let me know if I can help you further....

Freezer door opens when refrigerator closes on our Jenn-air


The drain tube is located in the freezer section. Upon removing the pack panel, you should see a small nickel size hole at the rear bottom within a metal water catching area. Signs of a clogged drain is water at the bottom of the freezer or refrigerator cools insufficently. If your drain is clogged, you should see if in and around the drain-hole and can be become difficult at times

What is your original complaint?

Water Leak at Defrost Time on Jenn-Air JCD2389G Side by Side


On the freezer side take the bottom drawer out and look at the back wall. You may get a partical view of the bottom of the cooling coils and directly below is where the water will drip from these coils. You may need a light and get your head back there to see the drain hole but it's there. This drain area could be filled with ice so, a hair dryer will do wonders. A tube with a little air pressure can unclog the drain. Pour a little water down the drain to make sure it's unclogged. Check this area often as this problem will happen again.

Jenn Air JCD2389 fridge not cold on fridge side


You have plugged the defrost drain line.This is where the water goes to in the bottom of your freezer when it goes through the defrost (removal of ice from the freezer coil) cycle. It sounds like that hole is plugged and now the water/ice has now frozen in the vent that lets air circulate down into your refrigerator compartment. What I usually do in this case is to unplug the refrigerator, empty out the freezer compartment. Usually I also end up either pulling off the back panel or the bottom panel (in the freezer compartment) Looking for that defrost drain hole and thawing it out with a heat gun (be careful of melting plastic) or actually I use a hair dryer. I can sometimes do this also by pouring small amounts of HOT tap water onto it and then sopping/absorbing it away with a sponge or dishcloth. I repeat this until I get the water to go down the drain tube.

Try it and let me know!
