SOURCE: Water/ice pools in bottom of freezer

The real problem is that the drain which carries the defrost water away from the coils (and down to the external pan underneath where it should evaporate) has become plugged with ice (from having left the door open thereby icing up the coils and the drain). The problem you have now is that the normal defrost cycle was not designed to melt the ice plug that is blocking the drain. Solution: You have to either (1) if you're handy, you can remove the plastic panel over the coils in the back of the freezer and melt it out with a hair dryer or hot water -- or (2) unplug the unit, leave the doors open and let it melt out by itself. I don't know how long you'd have to wait for (2) to completely melt the ice plug -- I'm guessing at least 24-36 hours to be sure. I did (1) and it took me about 2 hours to remove the freezer bin and door, remove the main drawer slides, remove the internal drawers and their slides, remove the back inside panel, find the ice plug (lower left side of the drip tray under the evap coils), melt it out with hot water from a baster, verify that the drain was clear, reassemble in reverse order. But it worked. Problem completely solved -- no water since. By the way the drip tray was completely full of ice - right after a defrost cycle had completed -- so this problem will never resolve itself without intervention. Bear in mind, the whole cycle COULD happen again if the drawer is left open again and the excess ice builds up on the coils again. This is a design flaw in the unit itself. However, I read about a clever solution to prevent a new ice plug forming as a result of the open door. Just loop a length of 10-12 gauge bare copper wire around the defrost heater element and insert the other end of the wire in the drain hole. Heat conducted through the wire during defrost will clear any ice plug that may form.

SOURCE: i have a lg fridge/freezer and water flows from

You have a blocked drain hole at the bottom of the fridge put very warm water in the the drawers and remove once they un thaw then remove them and clean the drain hole in the bottom. If you need more help just post here and I will give you more informaion, also if it's got a lot of water you will have to remove the drip pan and drain it out

SOURCE: LG french doors, bottom freezer. Water leak from

Make sure your ic maker is empty. On the bottom of the ice maker is a small button. Watch the plastic fill tube and hold the botton in. Let the ice maker cycle anmd see if the water over shhoots rne ice maker. If it does, trim 1/8 of an inch off of the tube with a raxor knife on an angle = / this should take care of your problem.

Leaking inside


The drain in the back of your freezer is frozen. When the defrost cycle runs, the water has no where to go except through the panel into your refrigerator.

Turn the refrigerator off. Take everything out of the freezer and store it someplace for a few hours. You can either let the freezer thaw on its own or help it out a bit. If you want to speed the process, remove the rear and bottom panels from the inside of the freezer to expose the coils and the bottom pan. Stay away from the coils. Melt/chip away all of the ice in the pan. With a hair dryer, melt the ice in the back of the pan. Soon you will see the drain - concentrate on melting the ice in it. Some hot water and a sponge can help speed the drain clearing process. When the water drains freely, finish drying out the rest of the freezer and reassemble the rear and bottom panels. Turn the refrigerator back on, and you are good to go.

Ice build-up water leak


sheck the back wall of the freezer where it sits in that trough, more often than not this complaint is the fault of a defrost drain. if you can try to remove the back panal on the freezer, if its a defrost issue there willl be a huge amount of ice behind that panal blocking the defrost drain.
after you chip what you can away, you'll find that a hair dryer and hot water are the best way to get that drain clear so it wont happen again

The refridgerator has large amnts of water leaking from freezer


Looks like your defrost element is bad and needs replacement. Or if you can do a manual defrost and check if you are getting heat on the element. If there is heat, you can find a piece of copper wire and wind it around the element, leaving a trailing length of around two centimeters into the outlet drainpipe. By conduction this should keep the drainpipe clear.

Freezer leaking water


sounds like you have a clogged defrost drain tube. removing back panel of freezer will give you acess to drain trough, melt away the ice with a hair dryer, youll find a drain hole under there somwhere,pouring boiling water down the drain will clear it pretty quickly( i use a steam machine purchased from the infomercials works awesome, after you clear it and all water drain down tube wrap a piece of solid copper wirearound the heater( black calrod heater right above the drain trough) and stick it in the whole maybe an inch or so. now everythime the heater comes on to defrost it will prevent the hole from freezing over
