If this is a top mounted freezer the drain under the evaporator in the freezer section is iced up. You will need to take the back panel in the freezer off, to get to the evap. Defrost the ice with boiling water, then a heat probe will need to be attached to the defrost heater and down through the drain hole, There is a kit for this procedure.part # 819043

Refrigerator leaking water


You gave no manufacturer name or model number so this is only a guess: If you refrigerator is a self defrosting one, it will periodically, allow ice building up in it to turn to water which naturally drips to the lowest point. Most refrigerators have a drain below the vegetable bins on the bottom. That is probably where the water is coming from. Solutions include putting a shallow baking pan under the bins or under the refrigerator to catch the water, then empty it periodically.

Ge model number tbx21jaxerww. Water collecting under vegetable bins


Hi,
The water building under the veggie bins problem is usually a result of the drain under the evaporator coils being clogged with either ice or debris.
The get to the drain, the shelves and sometimes the bins will need to be removed, then the back panel will need to be removed. There usually are a few screws on each side that hold the panel in place...
Then look for the drain right under the coil....if possible run a wire down the hole to make sure it is open to the pan underneath.
If it is frozen then a wire can be used to keep the drain open...here is a tip about how to do that...

Water is dripping from the freezer down to the fridge. My vegetable and fruit bens are constantly full of water.


Hello lay.... that water is supposed to make it's way through a small hole in the floor of the fridge and down to the evaporator pan just above the floor. Begin by getting a flashlight and then remove the lower grill below the door of the fridge. Look under there with the flashlight to see if the evaporator pan is dirty. If so clean it. Then remove the bins at the bottom of the fridge and find that drain hole. Clean the hole with a cotton swab. Joe

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

I have water puddling up under my Vegetable bins


Our fridge had the same problem with water under the crispers. My husband removed the slide out bottom out of the freezer section and exposed the galvanized trough that drains the defrost water into the drainage tube that goes to the tray under the refrigerator. Hallelujah! the galvanized trough was rusted through and allowing water to drip into the refrigerator instead of the drain hose. I have not found the trough on any parts lists so he is patching it with putty.

The water builds up on the bottom of my fridge under the bins. It is dripping down the inside back wall from the top area


Hello, this sounds like you have a blockage in the drain tube, remove panel back/bottom of freezer..you may see ice build up...melt ice with hair dryer/heat gun...you will see a pan below evaporator...melt ice in pan...dry water up in pan with paper towel...now you should see a hole in pan that leads to drain tube...pour some hot water in pan..wait a couple minutes..mop up water and repeat this step 2-3 times....once you have done this find some flexible curtain wire or electrical wire..poke down the hole until you see the water drain..now it is clear..put back panel back and you are good to go. The reason you see water in the fridge is because the water has been leaking into the freezer and down the vent into the fridge instead of running into the drain hole...Please feel free to comment again if you need any further assistance.

Model TBX21KLK water pooling UNDER vegetable bins


Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.

GE refrigerator leaks water under the vegetable and fruit bins


If the refrigerator is of the frost free type, and most all are today, the unit has a defrost cycle where the compressor is shutdown and a heater comes on to melt the ice buildup on the evaporator coil. This water has to go from a drip pan under the evaporator coil down a rubberized or plastic tube to another pan at the bottom of the fridge where it evaporates. Either this hose is blocked or the opening to the hose is blocked. Find the hose (usually on the back of the unit) and run a long wire with a small piece of cloth attached to the end of the wire to get it flowing again. Your water in the veggies comes from the overflow of the upper pan into the inside of the fridge.
