Question about Kenmore 26.0 cu. ft. Side-By-Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

GE Refrigerator, Model TBX22ZA

Water is collecting in the inside of the bottom of the refrigerator, under the vegetable and fruit drawers. There is no traces of water coming down inside walls, and I don't see a leak coming from anywhere. It is producing about a glass of water a day. I did try to vacuum out the coils, but have noticed no difference. Any suggestive action?

One thing I might suggest is to check and see if the magnetic seal around the outside of the door is clean, tight, and fitted properly as this is one thing that can cause this condition.

I have the same problem. The only thing that has ever worked for me is to completely defrost the fridge. I think some fridges drain holes are inside, and get blocked by ice from the freezer. A friend told me that I have to defrost the fridge periodically even though it's "frost-free."

Where is the drain hole for this model

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that you are looking for the drain hole on your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FFHT1725PS, due to water building up on the shelves inside your refrigerator. There technically is no drain in your refrigerator. There is a drip pan, which collects water from the condenser underneath your appliance. There are some possibilities that are causing the water to build up on the shelves. First, make sure that all containers are covered. Condensation can evaporate from opened containers and create water on the walls and shelves. Secondly, make sure that the drawers that have your fruits and vegetables are completely closed and set to the correct setting. Fruits and vegetables are full of water. Thirdly, check to make sure that your doors are closing and sealing correctly. Moisture can come through an open door or a door that is not sealed correctly. Lastly, if it is hot and humid, make sure that you are not going in your refrigerator many times and holding the door open as well. Hope this is helpful.

-Best regards-

Water leaking inside my vegetable drawer

Just above the drawers is a drain hole on the back wall. Push a drinking straw or very thin brush down to unblock the drainhole and the water will drain away outside the rear into a pan on top of the compressor

Water accumulating inside fridge bottom make GE Model #gta18pbnaww

That's normal especially if you tend to leave the door open alot. Moisture from the outside air condenses and drips to the bottom. Also, if the refrigerator is automatic self-defrosting it will melt ice collecting around the refrigerator and the resulting water will collect at the bottom. Check under the food drawers for a drain hole. If it is clogged, clean it out. If it doesn't exist, periodically sponge out the bottom under the drawers.

What would cause a refrigerator to collect water under the fruit and vegetable drawers?

hi there, refrigerators have condensation that forms and generally goes down a little hole that is usually under the fruit and vegetable drawers. This water should go down this whole into a condensation pan that is under the refrigerator and then evaporates. Sometimes food gets in the hole under the drawers and keeps the water from being able to travel where it needs to. Try to run a pipe cleaner of something through the hole to clean it out and maybe a very small amount of HOT water. If there is no hole there, it is unusual and it is possibly something else. This is usually the problem I have. Hope this helps!

Model CTX18GAZBRWW - (Hotpoint) no-frost - freezer on top Water collects under the vegetable drawers and must be removed every day.

Something to try....on the back wall of the fridge nearer to the top is a little cup like part sticking out. There is water in it but it usually runs down an attached tube inside back wall and ends up under the fridge and gets evaporated. If that tube or the little cup thing is plugged then it will drip in the fridge and collect on the inside bottom of the fridge. So the trick is to clean them out. Check it out ...may solve the problem.

Water/liquid collects at bottom of refrigerator under vegetable drawers

For water collecting inside of a refrigerator, there is usually something leaking inside, or perhaps the door seal is letting moist air into it.

Water laying underneath the fruit & vegetable storage drawers

Hi Matt, Hi Dar(lene)?

Super easy fix. Your defrost drain is blocked by what we in the biz affectionately refer to as "Bio-Gookus", so every time the fridge goes into defrost, the newly melted water has no place to go other than the bottom of your fridge. Gravity is what gravity is, ya know?

My bet is that it's clogged up at the drain funnel located in the refrigerator/beer compartment. If I'm remembering right, it should be just to the left of the thermostat/control panel in the back. You should see a plastic cover there, remove it. See the "Bio-Gookus? Kinda gross, huh? All of that has to be cleaned out. Not only in the funnel but the tubing behind it as well.

After cleaning it (and putting the pieces back) your fridge will be happy again.

Hope this helps!

the drain hole is blocked in the bottom of the fridge. if the water is not able to drain down the hole it will overflow into the fridge base. check any holes at the inside back of the fridge.
