SOURCE: My fridge has water pooling on the top shelf

Hello, this sounds like you have a blockage in the drain tube, remove panel back of freezer..you may see ice build up...melt ice with hair dryer/heat gun...you will see a pan below evaporator...melt ice in pan...dry water up in pan with paper towel...now you should see a hole in pan that leads to drain tube...pour some hot water in pan..wait a couple minutes..mop up water and repeat this step 2-3 times....once you have done this find some flexible curatain wire or electrical wire..poke down the hole until you see the water drain..now it is clear..put back panel back and you are good to go. The reason you see water in the Freezer is because the water has been leaking into the freezer instead of running into the drain hole...If you need any further assistance please feel free to comment again. good luck! P.s Please don't forget to rate my solution thanks! Mike.

The defrost drain is frozen, you need to take the cover off inside the freezer and there will be a drain hole probably coverd with ice, you will need to pop most of the ice out first then I use a turkey baster and a tub of hot water. Squirt the hot water in the hole over and over again untill it drains. Then just wipe everything down.

Could be the little red stopper at the back of the fridge on the inside has come off, and this is where the water is coming from, look inside on the lower shelf and you will see a round opening which should have a red stopper in it.

My LG Model LRTN18320WW is leaking water inside frig. on bottom below produce drawer. has occurred since summer. what is solution?


Drain in freezer compartment is plugged.
Mold (fungus) buildup sometimes restricts water flowing into condensate tube in the defrost cycle, and water somehow can enter in the refrigerator compartment and out the bottom of the refrigerator door.
You must clean the condensate tube!
You must remove back cover in freezer. One screw in left upper corner behind plastic screw plug will allow you to remove the cover exposing evapourator coil and condensate drain tube hole below it. Must also remove back cover at rear of refrigerator exposing the condensate drain tube END which may be restricted also.Tube must be totally cleared to allow the water created from defrost cycle to exit to the drain pan in the bottom of the refrigerator.

My fridge is leaking water inside of the main fridge compartment. It is coming from the top and I can see water dripping out of one the hole. There are two small one inch square holes near the back top...


The defrost drain hole is frozen over.
When your fridge goes into defrost mode the water has no where to go but inside the fridge,not down the drain hole.
Turn the fridge off for 24 hours and open the doors. Let it defrost naturally to clear it out.

Our roper fridge is leaking water onto the bottom shelf and into the bottom drawer area where it puddles. After a few days it is enough water to saturate 2 kitchen towels. Otherwise the fridge works...


Good day,
Sounds as if the drain in the freezer compartment is iced up.
Remove the rear panel in the freezer compartment, and check for ice blocking the drain hole. If so melt out with hot water (no heat such as a hair dryer).

Depending on your style,the defrost water runs from there into the top of the fresh food compartment, out a fitting to the back of the machine and down into the drain pan.
The blockage is there somewhere.
Service techs use compressed air to blow the drain system clean, once all ice is melted.

If you have no access to a device like that, a standard tire pump with a 1/4" stub piece of tubing makes a good substitute.
Be patient. Do not force air if any ice still exists. May cause damage to connected fittings.
You'll know when you get it right. Water, when poured on the cooling coil will run thru the drain and wind up in the drain pan.

The fridge has lg amounts of water collecting in the bottom of the main compartment. Is this a defrost problem,blocked line or?


Good day,
With limited information, if one, you are talking about the fresh food side, and two, the machine has water in the door, it may well be the water reservoir tank, behind the crispers or it's fittings are leaking.

As a temporary test, at the rear of the machine is the dual water valve that feeds the ice maker, and the water in the door.
There are 2 plastic lines coming out of the water valve. Unscrew the larger one ( have plenty of towels around to collect any backfeed). Leave disconnected for now as long as the valve does not leak water.
As well, unplug the two wire plug that feeds that side of the valve. You'll still get ice, but no water in the door.
Test for results.

Bosch intelligent frost free 40


The small drain pipe on the back of the fridge gets clogged, hence no drainage when defrosting, hence ice blocks the airflow between the freezer compartment and the fridge compartment.
Remove the rubber stop from the drain pipe and clean (can be found above the motor)
Defrost the fridge for a few days (it takes at least 48 hours). During this time, if you are not brave enough to remove the internal panels of the freezer and continually clean the water, check for water coming out and clean.
If during the defrost there is no water coming out the drain pipe, use about 2m of flexible and strong wire to clean the pipe.
The aim is to unblock the pipe once the ice has melted.
