Water puddles under the freezer. It looks to run down the back of the freezer and out the door. I changed the ice maker and this was not a fix. This happens at different times and usually only once a day.
There is water and ice through the freezer door but this is not the issue.

Re: water leaks out of freezer once or twice per day
Is there water frozen on the frezer floor.if yes your defrost drain is froze over.it only happens a few times a day because happening when its going into defrost,the water melts on the frezer evaporater then should go in the drain.if blocked it then runs on floor.you could turn of your refer for 8 hours or so.or get to the bottom of frezer behind back frezer panel[remove]and use a hair dryer to thaw drain use a weed eater line with a knott on an end to push thru and pull out the other side.the knott would clean any stuff in the drain line.ps watch out for water and electricty.i hope this helps God bless,tom

Because the drain hole is probably frozen and the water can't drain out. Gain access to drain hose by pulling fridge out removing back cover and locating drain line. Remember how drain line is positioned and pull it off. Now open freezer door and pull the bottom container out and look toward the rear bottom of freezer. That's the drain. In order to fix it i usually melt the top part enough so i can start pouring hot water in it and be trying to clear with icepick too. When done reattach drain line and that's it.
Clean the drain pan and drain line in the back of the freezer section behind the cover underneath the evaporator coil. (hint: use turkey baster with hot water)
Make sure water drains when you
pour it in. If it doesn't - also clean drain tube on the back of the
unit behind the cover. When done - put the tube exactly where it was.
Good luck! :)
YOUR DRAIN IS CLOGED.LOOK AT THE BOTOM BACK PORTION OF YOUR FREEZER. (INSIDE) WHEN YOUR FREEZER GOES INTO DEFROST THE WATER HAS TO GO SOMEWHERE. IF THE DRAIN IS CLOGGED IT WILL FLOW OUT THE FREEZER DOOR.
If you have an ice maker, check for a leak in the water line. If no ice maker, there could be a leak in the pan for the defrost water, or the drain hose is out of position. Also, check to see if the water is actually leaking out from the freezer door. That would indicate a clogged drain. The bottom inside the freezer may have water, or ice on it. If so, suspect the clogged drain.
You didn't say from where. Usually twice a day your de-ice heating coils come on and melt any ice that has accumulated. this water usually runs down the back of the ref. and collects in a small pan under the ref. Someime ice form around the hole that the water drains down through to go into the small pan. so then when the deicer comes on the water just runs down the bottom of the ref and onto the floor. My Kenmore does the same thing. Remove everything from the bottom of the Freezer look in the back at the bottom see if hole is clogged with ice. Remove ice then pour hot water down hole check occasionally.
Your Ice Maker could be leaking or the defrost drain behind the back freezer wall could be blocked with ice or another source of blockage leading down to the pan below your refrigerator where the water is heated by the evaporator fan and replaced back into the air inside your home. You will need to unplug the power before going into the back of your freezer. Let me know if you would like help. Sea Breeze
I would check the defrost drain inside the freezer. this is real easy to do on this model refrig.
remove bottom basket (if it isnt frozen in place) and the shelf above it.
in th back just below the coil cover in the freezer section there is a ledge that will most likely be frozen over remove this ice using a hair dryer or hot water which ever is conveinant for you
you should uncover a drain hole flush this drain with hot water I use a turkey baster or large syringe to forcefully push water thru to clear anything in the drain
put it back together and you should be good to go
when ever the unit goes into defrost (which is about twice a day) the water runs over the ledge and then out of the door by the hinge puddling up next to the wheel.
this unit has a hard fiberglass drain pan that is built in and unless it has been dropped i cant imagine the drain pan being damaged.
Let me know if you have any other questions Peyton
Is there ice build up under the bottom basket in the freezer??
sounds like the defrost drain is frozen up. especially since your cleaning up once or twice a day. simply defrost the drain and flush the drain line with warm water. you will likely have to remove the freezer cover inside the freezer compartment to do this.
if there is no ice build up under the baskets then its likely there is a leak in the water line for your water dispenser line that runs in the door. if thats teh case you will most likely need a service company to fix it for you..
