    Thanks for your help but this model doesn't have an ice maker. The model number is srs535nw. According to trouble shooting section in samsung manual (ice build up on wall of freezer) it suggests thar the fridge maynot be sealed (closed) completely this does not appear to be the case and the build up is only on the base of the freezer. Hope you can help. Regards Greg

    I have the same Samsung side by side SRS535NW. I also have the same problem. Water on the floor of the freezer section. It seems to be coming from behind the rear cover. Not 100% sure at this stage.


  • bazzox Jan 23, 2009

    I removed the rear freezer cover and found that the drain hole at the bottom of the evaporator coils was blocked with ice. When this happens the water from the evaporator coils runs across the built up ice and leaks into the freezer compartment under the rear cover.

I have a Samsung side by side - model RS253BAWW.

Water was leaking onto floor from main refrigerator, not freezer. It was determined to be a blocked defrost drain.

The repair technician removed the trays and food from fridge, remove the screws from the panel at back, disconnected everything and remove panel.
The stainless tray at bottom of fridge as well as panel itself had solid ice blockage.

He placed panel in sink and used something similar to a blow dryer with narrow hose on it to defrost both the panel and drain in fridge. Took him maybe 15 minutes and charged $99 total for the visit.

In future I will do this myself now that I know how but thought it may be useful information to others who are having similar problems.

Oyu need to go to the samsung download site and look up the troubleshooting portion on ice makers, there you'll find the part where oyu can adjust the water inlet for the ice machine and then oyu will have to adjust it to where it fillls the tray to the correct level and that should solve your problem. Good Luck and If you cannot find what you need then give me the model number that you have and I'll get it for you.

Water collecting inside fridge, under meat drawer

Yes most responses are the freezer drain even if it is in the bottom freezer. If the drain is blocked water will build up anywhere inside your refrigerator only because it has no place to go during the defrost. Defective door seals can also can make the problem much worse.

Samsung Fridge Freezer leaking water

hi August.
Cause: A blocked defrost drain is one of the most common causes of water leakage. This happens when food particles or other debris clogs up the drain hose, which can lead to ice buildup and, eventually, water leaking out of the freezer and refrigerator.
3 common refrigerator problems you can easily fix yourself

The freezer drain hose will drain the defrost water into a drip pan at the bottom of the freezer. When this pan becomes full, it will leak water onto the floor. This is a regular maintenance task whenever the freezer defrosts. Empty the drip pan during the defrost cycle.
How to Fix Water Leaking From the Bottom of Freezer

Why is my fridge leaking water on the floor? If the refrigerator is leaking water it's possible that the refrigerator has a clogged or freezing defrost drain. If the defrost drain freezes the defrost water will overflow the drain and drip down to the bottom of the compartment, If enough water accumulates in the bottom it can run out onto the floor.

Water gushed out freezer door, possible solenoid problem?

The drain is clogged. The drain is usually located inside the freezer on the bottom shelf to the rear. Use a meat baster and a solution of 1 tsp. baking soda and 2 cups of hot water-not boiling to unclog the drain. You probably also have about 1/2 inch of ice build-up on the bottom shelf. This will have to be removed first.
