SOURCE: WATER LEAK IN FREEZER POOLING AT BOTTOM & FREEZING THEN MELTING

The problem was indeed a clogged frost water drain. I had to pull the frig out from the wall (found an incredible amount of dust accummulation in the alcove), then remove the vertical metal and horizontal cardboard covers to expose the drain catchpan. The 1/2" rubber drain hose end was only about 1/8" above the pan pointing directly into it perpendicularly. This was not enough clearance. There was a plug (formed by dust and water) in the end of the hose that came out easily when I 'roto-rooted' it with a screwdriver. The water flowed easily after that, but I went ahead and trimmed about 3/8" off the end of the hose and pushed it back into its slot. Then I cleaned as much as I could. The prevention is to keep the area behind the frig cleaned!

SOURCE: water in bottom of refrigerator

WARNING-It is a condition for the reader to take full responsability in attempting repairs and author shall not be responsible or liable for any damages. If you have no knowledge or experience to do this repair do not attempt it.

I have had the same issue with Fisher Paykel Active Smart fridge . This can be due to:
1) 12Volt fan in freezer is not functioning.
To test: open freezer door, place a magnet on magnet switch at the bottom of freezer where door seals(white plastic rectangle) It takes few seconds for fan to rev up so move magnet slowly until switch on. You can also close door and listen carefully if fan starts if unsure.
If fan works go to 2) 3)as defrosting resistance can be the trouble

2)If fan does not work . UNPLUG FRIDGE at the main plug
Empty freezer and defrost it if too icy (do not use sharp objects). Then on back panel you will see two holes on top. Put two hook tool and pull down and slightly forward until top lip is free. This is hard to do but the plastic panel is very strong so you can apply a bit of force there!!!
On the second panel is the fan, check wires are not broken (common cause of failure). unplug fan, you can check fan on 12V battery (+red). Buy a new fan if faulty and put freezer panel back.
3) If fan OK and you see a lot of ice on condenser (do not remove it by force, just let it melt completely) then the resistance is the cause of you trouble. It is delicate to remove and make sure FRIDGE IS UNPLUGGED! Do not force anything as condenser is very fragile and if you damaged it, your fridge can go straight to the dump. You can test the resistance with an Ohm meter to make sure internal resistance is broken or not. If broken replace it and your fridge will be fixed. If not broken then trouble is either with on board computer (very seldom) or the thermistance.

SOURCE: Water pooling underneath bottom drawers

Find the drain line from the freezer to the evaporation pan near the motor. Often the line is visible on the back of the fridge. That line is plugged either with food residue or the collection point in the freezer is solid ice. The self defrost feature melts the frost and drains it to the evap pan. If you remove the floor from the freezer area, you will see the collection point. When the line gets plugged with food, no water drains and then freezes to block the line even worse. So, if there is ice at the collection point, remove it somehow, maybe a hair dryer, and then clear the line by blowing compressed air from the bottom of the drain hose through to the collection point.

SOURCE: Why is my refrigerator is

If it's a top mount, freezer on top, then this means your defrost drain is clogged. A quick fix is to let the fridge dethaw. A more permanent fix is to remove back panel on the inside of the freezer, defrost, hang copper wire from the heater element into the hole. This will prevent a re occurance.

If you have a duel evaporator, evaporator inside the fridge, then drain hole is probably clogged there as well.

Why is water pooling on bottom of refrigerator under the fresh food drawers


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

Your purchased a high price Samsung refrigerator. About 60% of my service calls were either Samsung or LG models. They look great on the show floor.

Your unit has two cooling evaporator coils. One in the freezer which is common and one in the fresh food section which is not common. All Sansung has done is add another series of high failure components.

You have a frozen drain in your fresh food section. You can either call a service company or shut down your refrigerator for 36-24 hours to defrost the drain. You call a service company, if I were still working for Sears, I would have to charge you about $350.00 to tear out the back wall and replace this usless coil.

Turn off your refrigerator for 24-36 hours. Hopefully it is not a fan or a colling coil failure in your refrigerator.

My frigidare fridge leaks sporadically


Check the evaporator pan underneath may be full of water. Clogged and dirty coils will not allow air circulation and slows the evaporation down so it overflows. If insied leak, check the drip cup in the center of the fresh food section just below the freezer , if its full of food water will overflow into bottom of fridge.

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

Why is water is pooling at bottom of the fridge


WATER LEAKING FROM REFRIGERATOR OR INSIDE THE FREEZER OR FRESH FOOD SECTION
You have a blockage in your condensate defrost line or the pipe that fill the tray below the refrigerator is missing the condensate collector pan that uses the heat from the fan to evaporate the condensate back into the air inside your home.

Water Pooling and freezing on floor of freezer


most likely you have a frozen drain in the freezer section so that whne your refrig defrosts the water runs out into the freezer compartment instead of the drain pan underneath. the fix is to flush the drain with warm water to clear the obstruction. the drain can be reached either by removing the cover in the freezer area or by back flushing the line from beneath the refrig.
