Most refs have those bottom trays. They are intended to collect water from condensation inside the ref. It has a built-in heater underneath the tray to "heat up" the collected water to make it evaporate, so it should always stay dry. Some refs have a fan beside the tray and has the same purpose as the heater. I have a few suggestions to solve your problem: 1, Access the tray and see if it has a wire connected to it and if this wire is connected to the ref. If it is connected, it should be warm to touch, or you may hear (or feel) a fan running. If it's not connected, find the other end of the wire that goes into the ref, it is just near the tray usually towards the back of the ref. Connect the wire from the tray to this wire. This should solve your query. 2. If the heater or fan is broken, you may order them from any reputable repair shop that carries your ref brand. You may have them install the parts to your ref also. 3. If you are a DIY person, you may change the tray or fan yourself but I'm not sure if you could purchase parts in your area. Hope I helped solve your problem...

Water is puddeling under the left side and front of the fridge. its dry and dusty underneath. water line for ice maker has been disconnected for years. cant figure where the water is coming from


You have a side by side or a undermounted freezer? I am having the same problem with mine. Take a look into the bottom of the freezer, there is probably ice building up on the bottom of it under the bottom self or basket. It seems if the refrigerator door is opened frequently and it is moderately or very humid in your home the water vapour condences inside the freezer. There is probably a condensation tray somewhere that is overflowing into the freezer compartment. Once the ice build up on the bottom gets to a certain point the water then starts to run out the front of the fridge onto the floor. Remove the ice from the bottom of the fridge and empty the condensation tray. You may have to continually do this during humid periods. For me that is about 6 months of the year every 3 to 4 days. It's a pain but what are you going to do.

Back door of icemaker is fozen,cannot be fixed


Unplug your unit and let it sit for 24 hours. It will melt the ice and then you can dump the overflow tray located on the bottom of the unit. You may have to remove the guard in front to access the overflow water tray.

Condensation water build up inside refrigerator


The tray underneath your fridge is probably clogged, and overflowing. There is an evap tray underneath, and if it does not get adequate airflow, it will overflow, and leak out.

Clean the bottom front vents, and underneath the fridge to ensure adequate airflow.

Unit is leaking water from somewhere


Upper drip pan drains clogged, water overflowing onto the floor.

Remove the rear cover of the unit and clean it thoroughly wit a vacuum. Let the unit fully defrost. Use a can of Air duster (for pc's) with the little hose on to clear the drain holes in the upper drip tray. Clean dirty evaporator fins with windex and toothbrush, flush with water. Excess condensate should now drain into the bottom tank instead of overflowing ontot he ground. Be sure to drain the bottom tank thoroughly. With the unit cleaned it should now vent condensate out the warm air duct rather than letting it build up in the unit.

My Liebheer stand alone fridge is filling up with water in the bottom of the fridge.


This is due to the defrost water condesing and overflowing out from the drain tank.
So keep the fridge in a normal temperature and make sure that the tank is empty. Also check if this is an overflow or that the drain hose is leaking from the top of the evaporator collecction tray. If so check out the leak point and patch up.
Other wise if the fridge is working fine all what is needed to check out using a good inspectiion lamp, check the tilt of the fridge and set using a water level.

Water keeps overflowing over the ice making coils


Do you mean that it is overflowing the sump tray into the bin? If so there are two things to check. First make sure the unit is level. Second their is a simple water float valve much like an old toilet float that keeps the sump full. Turn the machine off and make sure that the float will stop the water flow 100% when the sump water level is just over the bottom of the water pump impeller. If the float will not stop the water flow either the water pressure is too high or the float valve is bad and has to be replaced. In general water pressure should be between 20-40 psi.

Water leaking to bottom of freezer


ok you have a blocked freezer drain. The best thing to use to clear this is 'curtain wire (the plastic coated wire you use to hold up net curtains). Ok you need to find the drain hole in the "small tray on the back wall inside that fills and freezes and then the water is overflowing at this point to the bottom of freezer" you want to gentley feed the curtain wire down the hole untill the water drains down there. If you can't get the wire down you may need to turn the unit off to defrost as it could be frozen solid with ice. cheers

Ice bucket/bin frozen in place


mine was overfilling because the ice was getting stuck on the way out. So some stayed in the tray and when the water would refil, it would overfil and go over the stuk cubes. leaving it to overflow to the bottom and freeze like yours.
