You may have an ice maker that has sprung a leak in the hose. Check it and replace.

    Need more information about this. What kind of freezer? I suspect several possible problems. If condensation is not forming and dripping down then you have a serious leak somewhere that will require you to pull it out away from the wall and follow that trail of water (ice) to the source. If no water is supplied like a regular refridgerator ice maker, then you may have to thaw it out, clean the gaskets and start out with a fresh slate. Is it a stand alone freezer (tall like a fridge) or low slung?

Ice Build up on freezer floor then leaks out the front on to the floor. Drain tube is not plugged. The ice builds up in the drain trough then over flows on to the floor of freezer.


Not usually, will have to thaw, then run pan of hot water through drai. Can pull lower vent cover off to make sure it runs into drain pan under fridge. Drain may look clean but tube may not be. Can take wire from hanger to clear as well.

Ice forming inside freezer


If the water is showing on the freezer side, more than likely you have a clogged drain. This occurs when the machine goes into defrost and the melted ice somehow is prevented from draining and therefor refreezing and blocking the drain for the next defrost cycle. The best way to resolve this is to unplug the machine for atleast 24-48 hours to let all ice melt. Also note on the maytags these days they put a rubber piece called a duck bill on the bottom half of the drain which will also cause this over time. To access this piece you'll have to pull the machine from the wall and remove the lower panel and find the plastic drain and remove the duck bill

I am also having ice form in the bottom of freezer The seal is good. I do notuse the ice maker or the water dispenser. If I do not continually break up the ice, the water leaks onto the floor. Very...


Hello,

That ice build up is their because the drain for the automatic defrost is blocked so instead of the water from the defrost running through the drain down into the pan at the bottom its pooling in the floor of the freezer and freezing up. by clearing the drain it will drain away instead of pooling up in the freezer....unfortunitly you didnt give your brand or model number so i can give no advice on how to take apart the freezer to clear the drain but can tell ya once ya figure out how to do it that will solve the ice problem.


I little insight in how to do it...typically on most freezers the back wall comes off,in a few cases its the floor that comes out but typically the back wall is what ya would remove.

if think your defrost cycle is ok . there is a defrost terminator that controls the heater at 50 deg in the back of freezer , the problem is the water delivery tube is iceing oven and causing water to run down the back of freezer wall . change the tube to newer style. it will be open on the top side . they work better. and the water valve may be leaking through. and may have to be changed .. ,,

GE side by side leaks water from icemaker tube


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.

Ice build up on bottom of freezer. Water leaks out of freezer possibly from melting. Water leaks onto floor of kitchen.


Your problem is possibly one of two things. The ice maker is leaking or the defrost tray behind the rear panel inside freezer back wall is clogged with ice or something else. If you know its not the ice maker unplug the refrigerator and remove the back panel to see if the drain is blocked there, Let me know, Sea Breeze

Ice forming on freezer


The drain is plugged. This fridge will defrost every 8 hrs or so. When it does , it will melt the frost that has built up on the evaporator. This melted frost will run down a drain under the evaporator to a drain in the bottom directly under the evaporator. When the drain gets plugged the water cannot drain out of the freezer compartment. After several defrost cycles the melted frost will overflow onto the freezer floor. When the fridge starts back up it will freez this water is the bottom of the fridge. sometimes this water that is now ice will melt on the next defrost cycle and actually run out into the floor. You will have to unplug the fridge or turn it off, then remove the cover to the evaporator. Get a hair dryer and melt the ice aruond the evaporator and drain. Once the ice is removed, check the drain and try to clear it. Once clear, replace everything but the shelves. Plug the fridge back in or turn it back on. Observe and listen for the evaporator fan. It should be running now. When working on the ice on the evaporator always be carefull. The defrost heater can be damaged if up push or pull on it too much.

Water leaking onto floor


unplug it again , sounds like your drain line has frozen, instaead of defrost water going down the tube and under refrig in drain pan, becuse tube is frozen its draining into freezer compartment and eventually spilling out through front of unit. totally defrost unit and behind back wall of freezer youll see a metal trough designed to catch water, in the center (under the ice is gonna be the drain hole, pour boiling water down until it runs freely

Freezer, water problem


you have a frozen defrost drain, first of all defrost all of the ice out of the drain pan behind the grate, once the ice is gone you'll see a drain hole that goes thru the floor of the refrig. you need to flush some hot water thru this drain.

I use a big syringe filled with hot water to do this it will force any sludge build up out of the drain tube into the drain pan.

kind of an easy fix even if you aint 10=)
