Drain Pan overflowing and water is leaking in refrigerator I can see drip pan overflowing but I do not know how to get to it


remove the back panel inside the freezer,then defrost the pan,then take a length of stiff wire and clear out the drain line from there down to the pan in the lower area near the compressor,as theres probably lime,mold growth build up in the drain line plugging the hose restricting draining of defrost water

Water leaking from fridge


Generally, this problem can be solved by replacing the water filter. The water filters have o-rings that self seal when installed. If you keep the same water filter to long those seals will start to leak. Fortunately for us, the water filter housing is right over the drip pan, and when it leaks it conveniently goes there.

To make sure take off the toe panel to the frig. If you have problems taking the toe panel off don't worry, they need to be yanked. Start on on side and really give it a tug. Once you get that off you will see how it clips in and you can remove the other side with ease.

Now, if it is not leaking currently, have someone get water from the dispenser while you are on the ground watching. You will be looking at the filter mind you, underneath the frig. You should be able to see it dripping right into the pan.

Now of course you could have another leak, but that is most likely what has happened. Passed that, you will have to see the leak to know what is leaking. You can get water from the dispenser, but if that doesn't work you will need to wait for the ice maker to make some ice. Then you can see if that is the problem.

To simply cut off the water supply to the ice maker you would just need to turn the ice maker to the off position. Then it would no longer ask for water :)

If you need anything else let me know! good luck!

Drain pan over flowing


The rubber seal on the water filter is bad . Replace the filter in the bottom kick plate . When the filter goes bad , water will drip into the drain pan , causing it to overflow .

We are getting an overflow of water in the pan in the bottom of the refrig. What causes that and can the pan be removed to empty?


This may sound strange, but the cause of your problem may be your icemaker. The fill tube may be leaking before it gets to the ice maker and causing the pan uner the fridge to fill up too much. try turning your ice maker off for a few days and see if the issue stops. Or you can see if the tube is loose or iced up. If it is iced up, you may have a bad water valve. If you need more assistance, let me know. Hope this helps!

Water in ice maker drips


Hello,

The cause of the constant drip is the inlet valve. Since the ice-maker water doesn`t travel through the filter but directly to the ice-maker, the valve must be faulty to allow water to travel through the valve when it`s not energized.

The valve part number most common for your type of fridge (manufactured by Whirlpool) is W10247725 and retail`s around $25-$30US.

**If you decide to service this on your own remember to unplug the unit and shut off the water to the unit.**

Hope that help`s. If so please take a second to rate the solution I provided for you here at fixya.

Good luck.

Whirlpool Defrost pan overflow


check and see if the door to the ice chute is closing all the way, moisture can get in there and cause excessive frost build up also check the location of your defrost thermostat behind the back panel in the freezer, it should be attached to the top of the evap coil. also check your water system and be sure that there are no leaks under the refer dripping into the pan while the unit is cycling for ice fill or dispenser line.

Overflowing drip pan under the fridge


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
