Water leaking into floor

Every few days I have water in the floor in front of my refrigerator. It looks like it is coming from under the bottom drawers. I assume this is a stopped up hose or something like that but I am not sure where to find the hose (or how to get to it may be more accurate). Any suggestions?

Re: water leaking into floor

There is usually a thin pipe, yes, that runs the condensation that forms on the inside radiator, and drops it out to a thin tray overtop of the compressor,where it evaporates. If you look below the inside radiator there should be a small gutter- follow this to whatever end it is at its lowest point(or the middle where the other gutter meets it in some cases) here will be the stasrt of the pipe. It is likely the start will be full of gunk. Use a wire or the best option i used in my appliance repair days was the old curtain wire(bendy looking about 3mm across,dont remember what its called) and feed this down. Failing this hot water poured into it might be enough to clear it. The other option for the excessive water is too much room air getting inside- wither by an obstruction stopping the door closing or that the seal is buggered- sheck that...

Water leak on floor

Typically on this model the drain hole Under the evaporator cover gets clogged. Remove the cover off the rear of the refrigerator and pour hot water into the drain until it goes down quickly. To remove the cover u will have to remove all the freezer shelves and the icemaker. Remove the covers screw and u should see that at the bottom u will have a block of ice down below. The refer goes onto defrost every couple days and will leak the melted ice onto the floor

Water is leaking out from the bottom of the freezer

Below the freezer coil is a drain trough. Sounds like it is frozen. Use a hair drier to melt it and poor baking soda with warm water down it.

My kenmore is leaking water once a day .

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.

Frigidaire Side-By-Side Refrigerator Leaks Water on Floor

I don't have the same refrigerator, but had a similar issue with a GE. Melt the ice at the bottom of the freezer. I think the water comes from the auto defrost feature. There should be a hole at the back bottom of the freezer that water would go into, and run to an evaporator pan under the refrigerator. The tube may be blocked that allows this water to drain, so it is backing up in the bottom of the freezer, and overflowing through the front bottom of the freezer to your floor.

My tenants informed me that water was showing up on the floor in front of the refrigerator. I checked the back where the evaporator tray is and it was dry. When i looked inside the refrigerator I notices water pooled inside, under the plastic bottom drawer. Anybody have any idea what i should do? thanks.

Water leaking onto floor

unplug it again , sounds like your drain line has frozen, instaead of defrost water going down the tube and under refrig in drain pan, becuse tube is frozen its draining into freezer compartment and eventually spilling out through front of unit. totally defrost unit and behind back wall of freezer youll see a metal trough designed to catch water, in the center (under the ice is gonna be the drain hole, pour boiling water down until it runs freely
