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.

SOURCE: DEFROSTING/ WATER RUNNING ONTO FLOOR & INSIDE FRIDGE

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!

SOURCE: Ice build up on bottom of freezer. Water leaks out.

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

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: My pull out freezer (on

Hi,

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.

one of the plastic wtaer lines could be cracked,when the ice maker fills the water line could be cracked and leak out when it's filling.also it looks like you have a water dispenser in your machine,go in the back with the bottom panel removed and have someone fill a cup of water and check the lines while it's filling.where does it look like the water is leaking from?is there ice in the bottom of the freezer floor?the drain could be blocked.when the machine goes into defrost if the drain is blocked the water will leak out onto the floor of the freezer and then out onto the floor,if that's ok i'd have to say it will be one of the plastic lines,it gets hot in there,have you been cleaning the condenser coil?that should be vaced out at least once a year,this is how the heat escapes from the machineif the coil is clogged with lint and dust it will run hotter than normal and this also makes the plastic lines brittle.hope this helps and change the water filter every 6 months.

Water leaking


Hi

There are several things to check for: The condensing defrost tray under the fridge can crack or develop a hole and leak onto the floor. A door gasket not closing properly may cause sweating and leak onto the floor. Some fridge's have a humidity switch inside the fridge that should be turned on to prevent sweating on the center bar between the fridge and freezer section. If your fridge has developed a frost free failure problem, often the frost will travel down the suction line at the back of the fridge and drip water on the floor. The heat exchanger tubing can separate and also sweat and drip on the floor. A kit to repair a separated heat exchanger line, comes with instructions as well. Ice maker and chilled water fill lines can crack and leak as well, this is fairly common with the plastic lines as they can dry out and crack.

Please revert for any clarification.
A Fixya rating would be appreciated if you found this to be helpful.

We were able to fix the freezer water leak. We unscrewed the false freezer floor and the inside back panel. Ice had accumulated on the freezer floor and the defrosting drain was frozen. We removed the ice by using a blow dryer then poured boiling hot water onto the frozen drain hole. The frozen water in the drain pipe hole eventually melted and the water released into the defrosting drip pan at the bottom of the refrigerator. Problem solved. We no longer have water leaking into the refrigerator.

Refridgerator Leaks


I can't find this model number anywhere and am unfamiliar with the "Evolution" series. However, if it is a top/bottom unit (freezer on top, fridge on bottom) it sounds like you have a clogged drain.

If you pull the back panel off inside of the freezer (where the evaporator is housed) you will see a drain hole, usually in the rear center) that is probably full of ice. If this drain is plugged, it will cause the water to back up into the refrigerator, usually onto the top shelf or under the veggie bins, and possibly onto the floor.

You need to clear it out, and make sure that water flows through it freely, to the pan underneath the unit. The best way to do this is with a hair dryer and a copper wire, but be careful not to melt the inside of the freezer with it. When it's clear, you might want to take a hose and blow through it to make sure there's nothing trapped inside.

Please let me know if you need any further help with this issue.
