SOURCE: Samsun RS265LA Water is under crisper drawer

Sounds like the typical defrost condensate line is stopped up and every time your refrigerator goes into defrost instead of water following the drain tube to the pan below your refrigerator where warm air blows over the water and returns it back into the air inside your home. This is a common problem that happens. Sometimes just the refrigerator leaning to left or right will begin the problem. Other times the tube gets backed up because of slime an crud and begins slowing the drain flow down to the point it backs up and spills over into freezer or fresh food compartment. Every refrigerator is a little different so click here=> REPAIR OF LEAKING REFRIGERATORS and scroll down to near bottom of page. Read and watch the You Tube movie clip and other material and if you have more questions ask. You may need to remove the rear panel in back of the freezer compartment or if your brand has dual evaporators you may need to go into the rear of the fresh food compartment. Not every Samsung has dual evaporators. here is your Service Manual=> RS265LA It does appear that you have two evaporators on your model. Look this may take a wet and dry vacuum and Clorox with warm water and once the drain is cleared you will not need to do this often. On page 17 is a view of the two evaporators. Watch the movie at the link above and it will be so much easier. Contact me if you run into problems. If need you may contact me here on Fixya or my Forum=> Appliance 911 My contact information is located above the Fixya Ad on my blog here=> Sea Breeze Appliance Parts and Technical Services, www.pcappliancerepair.com

SOURCE: My SAMSUNG RF26VABWP WATER UNDER CRISPER DRAWERS

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. If this repeatedly happens with yours, you may can prevent it by taking a bare copper wire and wrap it around a fin near the heater and put the other end a few inches down the drain. The heat convection may prevent it from freezing.

Water through door stopped working. Now water is puddling under crisper drawers, sometimes freezing. Also seems to be leaking underneath left front side.


It sounds as though the hole allowing water generated by the auto defrost to drain away is blocked.

I suggest locating the hole and using something like flexible curtain wire to rod it through, preferably from underneath.
The water collects in a tray mounted on the motor where the heat generated by the motor will evaporate it.

Water in crisper drawer of Whirlpool model number ET18TK


the water in the bottom of the fridge will be from condensate running down the back wall and not collecting in the drain ridge to flow outside to the dish on top of the compressor. It comes from overloading the fridge by opening the door too often and excess food trying to cool down. check and unplug any blockages in the drain and pull any containers away from the back wall as water will flow off the wall onto them and miss the drain all together. The drain ridge will be under 1/2 way down the back

A 2 to 21/2 year old Samsung bottom mount freezer RB217ABPN purchased from Costco. Water is starting to collect under the crisper drawers in the fridge section. This is the third time in a couple of months...


You have a leaking water tank behind the crisper drawer. You will need to get back there to determine if the tank is leaking or the water connection is leaking. This will only leak if you close the door and dispense water from the dispenser.

Hi,

Water is my refrigerator crispers and meat drawer


I dont know what the book is saying to do nor what refrigerator it is, but in my case the reason for collecting water is that the drain gets stuck with some nasty goo.
This drain so located in the back of the refrigerator and is used to lead away water condensing on the cooling element.
Take a long stiff wire and push it through or make a hook and try to pull the goo out (this is really gooey stuff but it rather does not stink).

Your defrost drain hole is frozen closed.
