Question about Frigidaire Refrigerators
Freezer is on top, was purchased in 2009, bottom of frigerator fills with water then leaks onto my floor
Does it have an ice maker and or water dispensor? if so start by turning off the water supply, see if the leaking stops. if it stoped you may have a broken water line or the water level valve is leaking. if that isn't the issue check your seal around the door to make sure it isn't leaking in warm air. if that is ok you will need to look at the self defroster to make sure it isnt defrosting all of the time.

Check to see if the run-off tube at the back is plugged.
I dont know how old the fridge is - but if it a couple years old check at the back or the fridge - there should be a tube running down the back of the fridge down into the bottom tray. This tube funnels water from the freezer (condensation, or water from the defrost) down onto the tray holding the compressor where it evaporates with help from the heat off the compressor. Sometimes this tube can get plugged up with some scum or mineral deposits, causing the built up water to drain from inside the fridge.
The tube shouldn't be too hard to remove and clean out with some hot water and pipe cleaners. Had the same issue on on a GE fridge last year.
Hope this helps!

Your problem is possibly one of two things. The ice maker is leaking or the defrost tray behind the rear panel inside freezer back wall is clogged with ice or something else. If you know its not the ice maker unplug the refrigerator and remove the back panel to see if the drain is blocked there, Let me know, Sea Breeze

in the back of the fridge you have a hose going to the bottom , take everything from inside of the fresh food compartment and blow in the hose and after voila problem solved

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.

SOURCE: My pull out freezer (on
sounds like your defrost drain is frozen over. When the refrigerator is going into defrost it's draining through the front instead of the drain pan. You can remove the shelves and peel off the back cover and clear the drain by pouring hot water on the frozen drain hole. If you have a baster of some sort you could try to squirt the hot water through the venting on the bottom of the panel. Another way to to point a hair dryer on the drain hole. The best method is to remove the shelves and panel and make sure the drain is clear.
Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction.
