If the freezer is on top then empty out the freezer and remove the bottom and back liner of the freezer compartment usually phillips screws. In the back you will see the freezer coils along with a defrost element. Below these two items u will see a drip tray that collects water from the coils on defrost cycle, in the center of the pan will be a drain hole that connects to a hose that leads to a pan under the refrigerator.Normally the water is collected there and evaporated. The hole in the tray in the freezer is clogged. Thaw it and clean it until you can pour water in it and it goes to the pan down below. please rate me

When your refrigerator defrost the water runs into a drain pan in the bottom/underneath the refrigerator, You will need to first unplug and remove contents from freezer and proceed to remove the air tower in the center of the back panel, underneath the evap. coil in the center is a hole that leads to the drain and it is iced over and the water is not able to flow.What i do is get a hair dryer (be careful not to melt the plastic) and defrost/melt the ice. You will need a towel to start and once you think you have the ice removed get some hot water and pour in the trough to make sure it flow's to the drain pan. When the flow is good put the part's back and make sure the refrigerator is level from side to side and slightly tilted towards the back (front to rear)!

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

Water in freezer


Most refrigerators today are ice maker ready. If the plugs that were installed in the cabinet and freezer compartment that are used to plug the "ice-maker ready" holes are removed, then moisture seeks it's way into the freezer and freezes.

You will need to replace the plugs to prevent this from happening. Do not use tape to cover the holes as most tapes are not watertite. You should be bale to find replacement plugs at your nearest home center, or from the manufacturer of the refrigerator.
