for reallybsq
problem could be door seals not sealing completely and hence excessive ice formed on evaporator and excess water when it melts. however, i have found this problem many times with large larder fridges and really found no cure.

for guest.
towards the bottom of the back wall, there is a gulley with a drain hole in the middle. this drain is blocked. clear it with something flexible and make sure water flows away freely

You need to remove the clog in the drain line from the freezer to the condenser, Look under the fridge for the plastic drain line and blow it out or otherwise clear it, Then insure that the unit is level. Sooner or later you need to clean the freezer drain pan. After using up your frozen food, remove the back panels of the freezer and clean the area well.

SOURCE: Drain pan of refrigerator is filling up and overflowing onto the floor. This never happened before.

Maybe it is because of increased humidity inside the fridge. This could be caused by the door not being properly closed or leaking.

If the temperture behind the compressor is not so hot the water will not evaperate. the heat from the compressor dry out the water.

Hi Mickey, You have a bad water valve. Turn the water off to your unit and turn off the ice maker. Replace your inlet valve.

Water is puddeling under the left side and front of the fridge. its dry and dusty underneath. water line for ice maker has been disconnected for years. cant figure where the water is coming from


You have a side by side or a undermounted freezer? I am having the same problem with mine. Take a look into the bottom of the freezer, there is probably ice building up on the bottom of it under the bottom self or basket. It seems if the refrigerator door is opened frequently and it is moderately or very humid in your home the water vapour condences inside the freezer. There is probably a condensation tray somewhere that is overflowing into the freezer compartment. Once the ice build up on the bottom gets to a certain point the water then starts to run out the front of the fridge onto the floor. Remove the ice from the bottom of the fridge and empty the condensation tray. You may have to continually do this during humid periods. For me that is about 6 months of the year every 3 to 4 days. It's a pain but what are you going to do.

Is the pan "level" under fridge? If not, it will not hold the amount of drainage that is put out and spill onto the floor.

Water leak fridge


The condensation in a fridge is generally routed to a small drain hole at the bottom at the back. The water drained off here normally drips onto the compressor unit (the big black ball thing at the back) where it gets evaporated off, due to the heat the compressor generates. Before taking steps to unblock the drain, you might consider defrosting the fridge first. When unblocking the drain, do not use wire, unless the fridge is switched off and unplugged, you never know where that wire will end up (electrocution risk!). There are two good ideas for clearing the blockage. The best way off clearing the tube is with compressed air, often difficult to get in your kitchen, but don't despair, there could be two solutions in your garden shed. If you have a Weed-killer Spray that uses a pump to pressurise the spray pot, you could use that to clear the blockage (with a bit of ingenuity). Clean the spray thoroughly first, you don't want to poison anything in the fridge, and use the spray with no liquid in it. You can take off the spray nozzle and use the pipe in the hole. If you need to manually unblock the tube, you could use a hard nylon "cord" that is used in a garden strimmer. Pocking that down the hole and into the pipe should do the trick. It's flexible enough to get around the corners in the pipe and when it emerges at the other end it won't electrocute you if it touches a live connection. Lastly, having removed the blockage, put a very tiny bit of "plughole unblocker" fluid in the pipe, that will clean out all the other residue not pushed out with the cord. Good Luck!

Lg icemaker stuck


You have an overflow of ice building up in the reservoir. Turn off the maker and use the contents until 3/4 are used up. Turn on again and stop when near full. Check to see if the LEVEL of the refrigerator is correct. The BOX may be tilted forward and an adjustment made.

How do I empty the tray when full in the back of my model 253.74810400 fridg? Also leaking water from somewhere onto the floor.


the water on the floor will be from the overflowing reservoir at the back of the fridge. i would suggest buying a syringe ith at least 20ml capacity usually you can get them from hardwear shops, and use it to emty the tray at the back. Make sure that the pipe leading from the drainage port to the reservoir (drainage port is located inside inside of the fridge at the back) is sitting inside the collection reservoir and not hanging over the side causing the puddle.
