Re: water leaking out on floor
There is a drain hole in the back/bottom of the freezer, check if the fridge
is connected to a drain and water drains into the hole, looks as if it
is cloged.that is a drain. Use a turkey baster with hot
(not boiling) water to flush out the drain tube until water will flow
out into the drain pan under the refrigerator. (where the air blown over it will cause it to evaporate)

There is usually a condensation pan at the bottom of a fridge. This can fill with water and over flow, causing what is happening. Also, the ice maker could be causing the problem because the water connections can leak at the back where they connect to the house water system.
Hello, I dont know if you have a side by side or the freezer is on top,but thats a fairly common thing and the following is what i already wrote before what to check when it leaks like your experiencing.
SIDE BY SIDE
The water is from the melted frost of the defrost cycle. The drain at the bottom of the back wall of the freezer is blocked so instead of the water draining into the pan where it will evaperate,it's pooling on the freezer floor and freezing, in many case when the floor indent is full the water will leak onto the floor.By pulling the refrigerator out from the wall,there will be a tube behind the service panel on the right side when looking at it from the rear,that tube can be removed and cleared,then clear the nozzle it connects to inside the freezer. FREEZER ON TOP That water is from the melting frost of the automatic defrost cycle. Their is drain in the freezer behind the back wall under the evaperator coil that is blocked, so instead of defrost water draining it's pooling in the freezer or in some case espically on models with the freezer on the top,the water is leaking from the freezer vents into the fresh food compartment. The way to clear the drain is remove back plate and remove all ice build up and GENTLY make a small hole in drain through then totally flush w/warm water. The exact location of drain is under the coil behind back freezer plate in the center
I guess, I need to know if its the floor of the refrigerator, or kitchen floor? if floor of refrigerator. Its most likely a drain issue..The defrost system melts the ice and that water flows into a drain. these become clogged from food particles and stop up. The water then travels the path of least resistence and ends up down inside refrigerator. The solution is to open up drain and usually all is well..
Now, if its just on the floor. we have to check all the obvious. it still could be the drain and water could be running out from under crispers onto the floor. So, check that first...if not, check the connections at icemaker valve (if you have one) again, check water line if you have one....make sure the drain hose is in the drain pan...sometimes the drain pan sits above the compressor and heat evaporates the water...these pans get a hole in them I hope this helps..let me know if you need any clarifications....Bruce
the drain in the freezer is clog make sure the drain from the freezer
is clean all the way to the pan next to the compressor . you need to
open the back wall of your freezer for that ( the inside wall) clean
with buster (water pump)the drain is in the bottom middle of the freezer.
Hello, sounds to me like you either have a leak on the nut on the water inlet valve or a pinhole leak on the inlet valve body...have come across this many times before...you may not see the leak from the valve because it is very fine spray but it's there...only real way to detect where it is coming from is to pull the valve out switch water on and see where the leak is....either this or you have a blocked drain tube in the refridge but with the info you supplied i would suggest the valve. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Good Luck! Mike
the pipe which is located at the back of the fridge/ freezer may be blocked or hanging outside of the designated collection chamber designed for this purpose. Unplug from the mains and pull the appliance away from the wall so you can see and get to the back of it. At the back of it you will see a pipe coming out from the bottom of the cooling fins and will go down and the end of it will be sitting inside a shallow plastic collection unit - not covered but open. Itusually is sitting on top of the condenser unit. (this is a large sealed metal structure whic has pipes coming out of it and is the largest item in that area at the back bottom end of appliance). If there is some liquid in it then either move the pipe end into the dry area or emty it out. Sometimes there isnt a collection chamber but the pipe just drips onto the condenser and evaporates - usually on self defrosting certain brand named products but dont know much about that. Use a pipe cleaner to clear out the pipes from inside the fridge out toward the back using that pipe. the drainage hole is inside the fridge at the back and may have some sort of cover or plug in it. remove that and clean it and use the wire or pipe cleaner to shove doen the hold and clear the entrance and exit. Test pipe functionability by pouring a small ammount of water down the drain hole and see it coming out of the back via pipe. If still leaking make sure the vent areas in the back of fridge and freezr are not covered expecially in the self defrosting models. basically dont overload the fridge or freezer coz this causes blocked vents, difficulty derfosting on self defrosters, water builds up and gets out via the tube as it should, but more water than can be evaporated will cause puddles on the floor
1) Check to make sure nothing has spilled in it. I had a bag of peas split open once and they were blocking some area and causing an airflow problem. I would then get Ice build up then it would thaw and spill on the floor.
2) I'm sure you have done thisw but make sure a water line does not have a split or pin hole.
Remove the toe kick, on the t side you will see a connector where two water lines meet, if the water is leaking there, push the two lines into the connector and then pull back on them to make sure they are sealed. test to see if it still leaks, if it does push the red or blue ring around the line in, while doing that pull the line out of the connector, repaet for the opposite side. use a razor or sharp knife and cut about a half inch off each line, make sure they are flat, push them back into the connector, and pull to seal, if it still leaks replace the connector. If the wateer is coming out of the freezer door replace the water line that goes through the door.
