Question about Samsung RSH1DBBP (19.1 cu. ft.) Side by Side Refrigerator

Open Question

Samsung rsh1dbbp fridge operating correctly but leaking water from inside fridge compartment? What could be the cause?

Traced the leak, seems to be coming from around the evaporator fan. Quite a bit of ice around inside of panel but nothing major, i assume this is melting and leaking out the fridge. What do you think needs changed or checked?

SOURCE: ice maker leaks inside freezer

check the water discharge hose which fills the ice maker after ice is dumped into the bin. the line is located in most cases at one end of the ice maker and allows the water to flow into a funnel like device above the ice maker mold. the hose has the diameter of a penny, it is probably misaligned with the ice maker itself/

SOURCE: RS253BAWW Samsung Side fridge water leak

I would not be too alarmed about this. Most refrigeration systems will drip water off of the condenser coils while in use. This can most often be seen by cars that appear to "leak" only when the a/c is on. All that this "leakage"is is condensation. This is the same reason that window air conditioners need to have a slight downward tilt to the outside. This is also why they unfortunately, often freeze up.

If you're only noticing leakage while the refrigerator is running then I would bet even money that this is what's happening especially if the refrigerator is still staying cold. Most normally this condensation is caught in a drip pan which lets the water evaporate. However, during periods of extended use, especially with periods of high humidity i.e. the summer, sometimes the condensation is higher than what the drip pan can hold and you get leakage over the sides.

Unfortunately while this is a relatively minor problem about the only way you are going to eliminate this is to install a dehumidifier in your home, or simply tolerate it for a month or so during the summer. I would bet dollars to peso's that after mid august this won't be a problem.

One thing to note however, is that if you start to see that it is running constantly, or if you notice that it's not keeping cool, then it may be time to call in a service person. But for your particular problem I don't think that will be necessary.

Actually a pretty common concern... second time in two hours I've seen it. :D

A refrigerator that I bought second hand but has worked remarkedly well and still does with one exception. Is it worth fixing.


Of course it is worth fixing! This leak is cause by a defrost drain that is blocked with ice and sludge. I really can't tell you how to remove that rear panel unless you provide a model number. This problem is worse with the Samsung dual evaporators as the evaporator inside the fresh food compartment is usually the one that causes problems on those models. There are a few GE dual evaporator refrigerators also that are really a Sumsung with the GE brand name. Here is a link that may help but you need to pay close attention to the videos and focus especially on your Brand

The accumulation of ice on one side indicates a refrigerant problem. Basically there is a refrigerant leak and some of the refrigerant has been lost.
A technician can repair the leak and re gas the refrigerant for you.

Depends if there is plastic tubing running inside fridge compartment. Shut off water to fridge. If that stops it you will have to look inside to see if there is visible plastic water tubing or if you can get to it from inside the fridge. Maybe the water line has a defect or got pinched and somehow split. Then turn on water, find leak and splice in a replacement section.

Samsung twin door fridge water leaking onto floor


I have a Samsung side by side - model RS253BAWW.

Water was leaking onto floor from main refrigerator, not freezer. It was determined to be a blocked defrost drain.

The repair technician removed the trays and food from fridge, remove the screws from the panel at back, disconnected everything and remove panel.
The stainless tray at bottom of fridge as well as panel itself had solid ice blockage.

He placed panel in sink and used something similar to a blow dryer with narrow hose on it to defrost both the panel and drain in fridge. Took him maybe 15 minutes and charged $99 total for the visit.

In future I will do this myself now that I know how but thought it may be useful information to others who are having similar problems.
