Re: water under crispers in my fridge
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

check the ice door flap where ice drops into a glass.sometimes the flap doesn't close completely and allows heat to enter threw the flap.this causes frost to build and melt thus you have water you can't explain. hope this helps.
I understand your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# GLHT184TJ, is leaking water underneath the crispers. First, make sure the door is closed as well as you are not opening it frequently or for long periods of time. Secondly, make sure all foods and containers are covered. Lastly, make sure that all vegetables have been dried, if you have washed them, before storing them in the crisper drawers. All of the above can cause moisture inside your refrigerator, which can accumulate at the bottom of your refrigerator. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.
Check your connection at the bottom of the freezer door, behind the kick plate. Also pull out your crisper drawers and check the cold water reservior. If this only leaks when the water dispenser is pressed I would try to track the line from the bottom of the freezer door back to where it goes into the refrigerator (behind the crispers) to the cold water reservior.
If you absolutely have to lay this fridge down lay it on it's BACK only. Also be sure to let it stand upright for at least a half an hour before you start it back up.
Good luck with this!!
If the fridge has the freezer on top - the problem is in clogged drain under the evaporator.Whenever the defrost cycle is activated (every 6-12 hours), the water will drain not to the drain pan underneath the fridge, but into the air vents between the sections. Depending on the make/model to get to the drain line you may need either:
to remove the back cover in the freezer section;
remove the bottom of the freezer section;
remove the console with controls on the ceiling of the fresh food section
get behind the fridge, find the drain line going to the pan under the fridge remove the drain line and clean.
before you call check the bottom of your freezer, if it is full of ice, yuou more than likely have a clogged defrost drain
remove the back panel of the freezer and ensure the drain is free and clear,
check the fill tube of the ice machine to be properly installed
OK, I am going to give you a lot of information on one page, so please read carefully and choose the parts that apply to you. PS, Please rate my solution and my thanks to all the Guru's that helped put the following page together. please click on link below, Thanks Sea Breeze
Hhi, Yes the drain is plugged. remove the floor panel in the freezer and then the rear panel. Locate the drain hole (right side of drain pan) and melt all the ice. there is an after market drain heater kit that you will need to buy and add to the defrost heater.
It is a design problem. Part# 819043
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.
The automatic defroster is supposed to drip down a tube and deposit water into a tray underneath the refrigerator. If that tube becomes clogged with either ice or mold, water is supposed to drip down the back of the refrigerator and go under the crispers, but there is a drain under there that takes it to the tray under the refrigerator. That drain might get clogged with mold or food.
So my suggestion is, try to clear out the drains under the crispers. More difficult, remove the floor of the freezing compartment and clear out the drain there. If it is severely clogged with ice under there, you have a defrosting problem.
In this hot, muggy weather you are likely to get lots of condensation. Good luck.
the problem lies behind the freezer back wall panel, remove the panel, the ground (green) wire on the top left corner and the icemaker
all the ice build up under the evaperator will have to be removed, a good hair drier works well, direct the air at the center hole in the bottom of the metal panel all the ice out of the center hole will need to be melted out to be a success it will take a little time. you can pour some water down the hole and if you hear it going into the bottom drain pan then the tube is clear of ice.
