SOURCE: fridge bottom has water under vegetable drawers

Make sure the door is closing properly, that nothing is trapped in the door seal, and that the seal isn't torn or distorted. The seals are there to stop moist external air getting in then dropping its load of moisture as it cools. A.

SOURCE: Water in Fridge

Hi gchives.
My own fridge had this problem and it turned out to be a blocked drain at the back of the fridge compartment, just below the cold plate. The water is supposed to condense on the plate and run down to a drip channel, and then through a tube onto the top of the compressor, where it evaporates.
On mine, the tube was blocked with gunge so the water spilled over onto the bottom of the compartment. I got a length of earth wire - the sort used for wiring UK domestic ring mains - and poked it down the tube to clear the gunge away. I then chased it through with some hot water and washing soda and it has been fine ever since.

If these suggestions do help you solve the problem, please give my reply a rating to help others judge my knowledge.
If they do not, please give me more details so I can try to help you further.
Cheers, D

SOURCE: Vegetable and fruit crisper drawers freezing foods

I had the same problem. Apparently the problem is the main control board. According to the technician that came out to fix mine there is a design flaw and these boards are very sensitive and can blow a circuit or malfunction from the slightest power surge. What happens then is that the control board doesn't "tell" the fan to turn on and off at the right time so the fridge and freezer warm up too much before the fan kicks in and then it cools everything down but since the fan isn't running at the correct intervals and circulating the air all of the cold air settles to the bottom which causes the produce in the drawers to freeze while the top shelves get warmer. I had done a fair bit of research before calling GE and came to the conclusion that this was a common problem. So I pressed them and was able to get the fee for the part waived (before I made the service call appointment) which was around $150. The part now has a 5 year waranty which I find funny, because I'm not sure why it wouldn't have that upfront as my refridgerator is only 2 years old. Whatever!! Unfortunately, unless you have indepth knowledge of refridgerator repair there is no way around the service call and labor. Anyone buying a new model of refridgerator (any company) should consider an extended waranty. The service tech also told me that all refridgerators made after 2001 are required, by law, to have an electronic mother board which in all likelyhood will fail at somepoint prior to when you are ready to buy a new fridge!

Good Lucak!

You have a defective thermistor and damper control in the fresh food or a bad control board.
Check the thermistor first.
Also, adjust the return air damper at the bottom left side of the fresh food sction to warmer.

Refrigerator RF323TE how do I change the water filter?


The filter for the french door refrigerator is probably behind the vegetable drawer, if you do not see it in the upper right hand corner of the refrigerator compartment. Remove the veggie drawer and turn off the water coming into the refrigerator. Rotate the old filter to the unlocked position and remove it. Then take off the protective cap from the new cartridge and insert it into the refrigerator. Rotate it to the locked position. (Rotate the filter to position the label before you insert the filter. Then the filter goes in correctly.) Reinsert the vegetable drawer and close the doors. Then turn the water back on and fill several glasses with water to clean the filter. Pour that water down the drain at your sink.

For pictures of how to hold the filter, see http://www.samsung.com/us/support/owners/product/RF323TEDBSR/AA . See the FAQ on replacing the water filter. I hope this helps.

Water in the fruit and vegetable draweres


You might have the frig. temperature set too low. Set it at 38 deg. check actual temp. with gage. What happens is ice builds up in the drain tube that runs down to the bottom when the fridge defrosts therefore causing water to run into the veg. drawers. Ice buildup is preventing the water from running out at the bottom where it should. Just raise your fridge temperature a little and the problem should go away. Hope this helps.

Water comes into the fridge from the freezer.


Hi,
You have the drain from the coild froze up. The coils defrost and the water cannot run down the drain so it goes into your fridge.
This tip is all about that and how to fix it.

Water laying underneath the fruit & vegetable storage drawers


Hi Matt, Hi Dar(lene)?

Super easy fix. Your defrost drain is blocked by what we in the biz affectionately refer to as "Bio-Gookus", so every time the fridge goes into defrost, the newly melted water has no place to go other than the bottom of your fridge. Gravity is what gravity is, ya know?

My bet is that it's clogged up at the drain funnel located in the refrigerator/beer compartment. If I'm remembering right, it should be just to the left of the thermostat/control panel in the back. You should see a plastic cover there, remove it. See the "Bio-Gookus? Kinda gross, huh? All of that has to be cleaned out. Not only in the funnel but the tubing behind it as well.

After cleaning it (and putting the pieces back) your fridge will be happy again.

Hope this helps!

Water pours down the back(Internally) ofmy Liebherr Frost Free Fridge freezer.


It is most likely a broken water tank in back wall of refrigerator section remove the crisper drawers you will see the tank it holds about 1.5 gal of water to keep it chilled for the dispenser. check all around it with the water on and someone getting water out of the dispenser at the same time check the seams closely. you should find the leak there let me know if not we may have to look into the water inlet valve
