If it is a plastic compression fitting you can tighten each one a little(careful not to tighten them too much cause they can strip out) Use a small crescent wrench with a back up wrench.

Now I think I have other things wrong with mine,after leakage problem the refrigeration compartment wont cool anymore but the freezer part remains working as usual.Ive nailed this down to one of the following not working... Thermostat / timer / defrost heater.So one or more of these needs replacing.Im just trying to look for a manual which shows the nuts and bolts or the refrigerator (not the "How to use" type manual which I have).

SOURCE: RS253BAWW Samsung Side fridge water leak

I would not be too alarmed about this. Most refrigeration systems will drip water off of the condenser coils while in use. This can most often be seen by cars that appear to "leak" only when the a/c is on. All that this "leakage"is is condensation. This is the same reason that window air conditioners need to have a slight downward tilt to the outside. This is also why they unfortunately, often freeze up.

If you're only noticing leakage while the refrigerator is running then I would bet even money that this is what's happening especially if the refrigerator is still staying cold. Most normally this condensation is caught in a drip pan which lets the water evaporate. However, during periods of extended use, especially with periods of high humidity i.e. the summer, sometimes the condensation is higher than what the drip pan can hold and you get leakage over the sides.

Unfortunately while this is a relatively minor problem about the only way you are going to eliminate this is to install a dehumidifier in your home, or simply tolerate it for a month or so during the summer. I would bet dollars to peso's that after mid august this won't be a problem.

One thing to note however, is that if you start to see that it is running constantly, or if you notice that it's not keeping cool, then it may be time to call in a service person. But for your particular problem I don't think that will be necessary.

Actually a pretty common concern... second time in two hours I've seen it. :D

Water leaks at bottom of fridge


The same thing happened to me then I noticed ice had formed at the bottom of our fridge. It was covering a drain hole so water was leaking out the front of fridge instead of going to the drain pan or wherever the hole goes. After I chipped out the ice and cleared the hole with warm water the leak stopped. I also fixed another leak coming from bottom of fridge caused by a loose brass connection on water line going to the door.

Fridge leaking intermittently from the bottom


Sounds like your gasket may be going out. Consider replacing the gasket on the doors. Look for signs like small lines of frozen water that lead to the door or unexplainable excess ice in the bottom of the freezer.
I would also check for excess water in the condensation catcher tray, which may very well be located in the same spot under the ice maker. Depending on where you live (southeast, coastal, etc...) can have a strong contributing factor of having excess condensation, which will cause the tray to overflow.

My fridge model CTF2123AR leaks water under bottom pull drawer. this pools water on the floor


Water found under the tray is due to excess defrost specially when the fridge is set to a lower temperature due to heavy frosting.
So during defrosting the excess water flows into the tray and overflows out which incidently has flooded on the floor.
What could be done is to drain off the tank, fully defrost the fridge by shutting down for few hours and then setting the fridge/freezer to a normal temperature.

Yes it is located in the refrigerator on the bottom in the back. I assume you know how to clear it, Hot water plus towel to soak up excess water should take several tries of very hot water until it clears. Good luck

Water leaking daily from area below freezer, inside the fridge cavity. need to place containers to collect water and empty frequently.


sounds like outlet pipe is blocked at back of fridge unit, this is accessible from inside of fridge at the back and towards the bottom, remove any debris and feed through a relatively stiff piece of wire to unblock pipe, the idea of this is to take away excess water and feed it into a drip tray on top of the warm compressor where it then evaporates, however this can and does get blocked with food debris from time to time,.

My profile ge fridge leaks water and the water pools at the bottom of the fridge. What is the cause please. Thankyou!


There could be overflow at the deffrosting tray and the excess water is flowing out of the collection tank.
You can get access to the tank which is at the rear bottom . Open the sliding cabin to take the drain tank to be emptied.
Sometimes heavy frosting in the coil can result in this build up and cause the over flow.
You must take a look at the source of flow to finalise.
Please comment.

Fridge wasn't cooling but freezer was working, now both aren't


Hi,Your husband did good job, after cleaning and vacuuming, did freezer (bottom) have excessive ice?, if there's excessive ice in bottom, after cleaning, you have a defrost problem, but if there're no ice in freezer after cleaning, you got freon (gas leak) , there's a condensate loop, that passes through ref. body, from compressor that naturally develop, freon leak after few years, by rusting, normally it can be by- pass. vacuum and refill with freon, if there's no freezing, but compressor running, you'll need a mechanic, you got a freon leak. good luck.

Just found a huge leak


water in pan should evaporate of its own accord. you may have two faults. first, check door seals to see they mate with cabinet. if seals don't seal properly, excessive air will get in and hence the excess of ice. second, you should not have ice build up. remove back panel of freezer and check if evaporator has excessive ice build-up. if so, this points to a fault in the defrost system

Cannot open the bottom freezer door anymore; it seems stuck


sounds as though the defrost system has failed or the freezer defrost drain is blocked. take off the back panel of the freezer and see if excess ice build up. if so, defrost carefully with a hairdryer. at bottom is a drain. check if blocked with ice and if so melt off with hot water till water flows away freely. if i'm right, appliance will start to work. if fault re-occure then defrost system is at fault
