I had the same problem a while ago. I cleaned the filters in the back of the refrigerator and it stopped leaking. I guess you would want to clean the filters it might work for you as well. And also make sure the temperature in the fridge is right. Hope it works.. GOOD LUCK.

Fridge filling with water


OK usally this indicates that either your defrost drain leading down from the freezer has a blockage of ice, gunk or both. Unplug refrigerator and remove the rear panel inside freezer and on the back wall of many refrigerators.
I noticed you did not post your model number so I have to assume your freezer is on top above the fresh food section? If the water is trickling down the wall inside the fresh food compartment it is possible you have a small bowl that catches the water coming from the freezer and the drain line then turns and leads out of the fresh food section and down the back of your refrigerator. If yours does have that catch bowl this is the likely place for the drain line to get clogged. Here is an example Click here=> Whirlpool Leak Photo taken by TechnicianBrianAnd in this photo are several parts listed in photo group #1 were it is most likely running down the wall=> MagicChef CTB1921AR fresh food section. If you still have questions please ask and rate me if I was able to explain this well enough. Every refrigerator is made different so these are examples only. We need to see if the water is overflowing the condensate drain tray or if the blockage is in the turn the drain leads down back of your refrigerator. Much more on this page=> Leaking Refrigerators! This is a common tip so I will be placing this post and add as we go new ideas listed in Sea Breeze Tips Section. If you run into any problems along the way of repair please let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Model ET18NKXDW06. Water dripping from freezer down back of refrigarator. Placed bowl underneath opening to catch water. Should be going down to catch pan right???? Help Nell


Hello,

That water is from the melting frost of the automatic defrost cycle. Their is drain in the freezer behind the back wall under the evaperator coil that is blocked, so instead of defrost water draining it's pooling in the freezer or in some case espically on models with the freezer on the top,the water is leaking from the freezer vents into the fresh food compartment.
The way to clear the drain is remove back plate and remove all ice build up and GENTLY make a small hole in drain through then totally flush w/warm water.
The exact location of drain is under the coil behind back freezer plate in the center

Fridge is leaking water from the inside, on the back wall


Your freezer drain is clogged or frozen up with ice blockage. Need to remove the freezer floor liner, usually 2-4 1/4" screws holding it in - slide it out. Next slowly pour hot water over ice build up and melt all ice. The drain is under the evaporator coils (small hole near center) this connects to a pan under the refrigerator that then evaporates on its own. I usually place a couple of bowls inside fresh food area on top shelf to catch excess water dripping through ceiling of fresh foods.

Next you will need to attach a heat probe from the heater under the freezer coils and feed it into the drain in order to prevent freezing up again. Use part #819043 heat probe or strip some #14 gauge copper wire and wrap around heater once and place down through drain. Recommend the heat probe 819043 to get it right the first time.

LG LFX25960ST refrigerator food freezing above the pantry draw. Made all the tempature adjustments and still happening.


I have the same problem and I know the solution.
For LG to get their "in the door icemaker" to work, they have to blow cold air into the door's icemaker compartment. This air travels through two vents located just inside the refrigerator on the left side. The problem LG has is that the seals between the door and the refrigerator for these vents leak. This means that cold air is vented into the refrigerator compartment. Any sensitive food placed on the bottom two shelf on the left side will freeze. I can place two bowls of water in my refrigerator and make ice in 6 hours, even though the refrigerator is set to 38 degrees. The good thing is that LG knows there is a design problem and they know they can not fix it. After calling LG repairmen out for my freezing problem and not getting the seals fixed, LG gave up. Of course LG will try replacing the seals, and then replacing the door; but the real problem is a bad seal design. Just keep putting bowls in your refrigerator and as long as they continue to freeze up, keep calling LG back and demand that they fix the problem. LG can not fix the problem because it is a bad design, so now I am getting a new refrigerator Model LFX 29927, which is better and has dual icemakers. If you an LG refrigerator with their in the door icemaker, place two bowls of water inside the refrigerator, and if your seals are bad and they freeze; complain to LG until they give you a new refrigerator.

Kenmore Model 78185891 type C21TFA95, water leakage problem


you have a clogged defrost drain tube. removing back panel of freezer will give you acess to drain trough, melt away the ice with a hair dryer, youll find a drain hole under there somwhere,pouring boiling water down the drain will clear it pretty quickly( i use a steam machine purchased from the infomercials works awesome, after you clear it and all water drain down tube wrap a piece of solid copper wirearound the heater( black calrod heater right above the drain trough) and stick it in the whole maybe an inch or so. now everythime the heater comes on to defrost it will prevent the hole from freezing over
