Just to add . . . . You may also have to remove the back panel to remove and clean the tubing going to the drain pan if the hot water still does not flow through as mine did. Thanks Gene

Your defrost drain outlet is frozen over.
Turn off the fridge.
Remove the bottom drawers.
Look in the back section just below the back freezer panel and you will see an ice dam.
This must be defrosted. Use a hair dryer.
Once all the ice is gone pour water into the drain to make sure it is clear.
Then pour a 1/4 cup of bleach in the drain.
Turn the fridge back on and you will be OK until it happens to stop up again.

You have a plugged defrost drain. On hot point refrigs this is fortunatley a very easy repair you can do yourself. remove bottom basket and lowest shelf, ( for sake of room you may remove all shleving. I usually only remove the bottom 2) you will see a ledge coming up from freezer floor to under a rear cover. there will be ice build up on this ledge. clear all of the ice you see and you will uncover the drain hole. next flush hot tap water into the drain hole until it is clear. I use a turkey baster or large syringe to do this but you can push your finger in and out kind of like a plunger to clear the blockage then pour hot water thru line until if flows freely.
If you have any other questions leave them here and I'll be glad to assist any way I can. thanks Peyton

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

Look for obstruction at the drain tray for the freezer. Common to have plastic wrap sucked into that area.Or gunk in the drain line. Blow through line to insure the gunk is not an issue.

Water leaking from freezer.


Either the inlet valve is stuck or the icemaker solenoid is shored.

Most likely the second one.

Freezer leaking water


The drain is plugged just below the coils in the back of the freezer. My fridge had the same problem and I found the hose (which can be accessed from the rear bottom) was plugged with mold. Also, i noticed the hose was connected to the water holding pan and was too close to the bottom and easy to plug. I removed it from the connector and just let it dangle in the holding pan.
