Hi.

If the leak is not too big, then water comes from condensation. Water condensing inside the fridge is supposed to be conveyed toward the drain hole inside the fridge. From there the water should normally go to the drain try located in the compressor assembly.

What usually happens is that the drain hole gets clogged with frozen water, and the condensed water ends at the bottom of the fridge. The problem is fixed defrosting the fridge. In some sporadic case it is necessary to remove drain hole blockage using a thin and flexible drain rod.

Do a complete defrost, that should fix the problem.

Here all parts and diagrams for this fridge.

Regards.

Ginko.

SOURCE: I have a Samsung French door fridge that has a

Access is from the rear, but make sure the vents on the front grill are not clogged also because it does need front to rear air flow.

Your unit has two evaporator coils and two defrost heaters and two defrost thermostats, but uses one defrost timer circuit. So if you don't have trouble with the freezer side, then it should be the defrost heater or defrost thermostat for the refrigerator side of your unit. Which are items 1-2 and 1-4 on the following diagram.

There is water collecting continuously at the bottom of my fridge under the crispers. Do you know how I can fix?


Most frost free refrigerators take water from the freezer so you do not have to defrost the freezer. That being said there should be a drain under the crisper. Check to see if it is clogged.
you may need to put something under the refrigerator to collect the water..

Why is there ice in the bottom of the crisper?


Freezer /fridge water/ice in fridge

Usually due to CONDENSATION due to bad door seals or a plugged evaporator drain line? Can use a soft flexable tubing and very hot water to clean it out. Bad door seals usually need replacement, but u can use a blow dryer and something to pry it closer to the door wall while blowing hot air on to it. To create a seal, to test for bad door seals place a dollar bill in between the door and wall of fridge where it closes. Then slide out the dollar bill with door closed. It should offer some resistance and not be easy to pull out.

Water in crisper drawer of Whirlpool model number ET18TK


the water in the bottom of the fridge will be from condensate running down the back wall and not collecting in the drain ridge to flow outside to the dish on top of the compressor. It comes from overloading the fridge by opening the door too often and excess food trying to cool down. check and unplug any blockages in the drain and pull any containers away from the back wall as water will flow off the wall onto them and miss the drain all together. The drain ridge will be under 1/2 way down the back

There is water inside only the right side crisper from excessive condensation ,no change after adjusting vent on drawer to either low or high. Any suggestions?


Make sure the fridge is not overfilled or the back of it isn't covered (leave at least 2-3" from the wall). It sounds like it's heating up (don't put hot food in the fridge), so you need to remove items that don't need to be there. Make sure that the airway is clear to the crisper as it needs to "breathe" to stop condensation forming.

What is causing water to build up inside the refrigerator section? there is water in the crispers and on the shelves.


A condensation problem inside a fridge, normally means either, you are puting uncoverd food /or food that has a high water content (i.e.salads) into the fridge, which may be warmer than the inside temperature of the fridge, hence condensation(leaving the door open too long has the same effect)only remedy is paper towels in bottom of crisper so that salads dont go soggy.and wipe out fridge as often as needed.

Water in the crisper drawers, condensation line clogged


if condensation stays in there, it'll freeze up on the evaporator coils. when the defrost cycle goes on, it'll melt but stay in the fridge, only to eventually freeze up again. so, unclog that line. also, check your door seals for leaks. that may be where the warm, moist air is getting in.

Sub-Zero 550 water dripping on right side of freezer forming ice on draw


I had a similar issue that started about a year ago with my Sub-Zero 550. My freezer gasket actually tore after several times of freezing closed. I thought that a new gasket would solve it, but a second but related problem developed where I was getting alot of condensation under the left side of the unit, with the water dripping onto the floor...eventually staining the hardwood floor in front of the unit.

I traced the problem to a clogged condensation drain pipe in the refrigerator. It is a corrugated pipe that drains a trough behind the crisper drawers. My pipe was clogged with black sludge and frozen down below. The condensation in the fridge would overflow out of the trough and leak below the crisper drawers, down out through the gasket.

To resolve, I used a piece of solid thin wire folded in half and twisted with a small loop at the end to fish out as much sludge as I could. Then squirted hot water into the pipe until it totally unclogged. I believe this will solve the problem without any need for a heater underneath the unit. The 550 worked fine for 4-5 years before this happened.
