Question about Hotpoint 21.7 cu. ft. Side-by-Side No-Frost Refrigerator with Dispenser CSX22GRBWW
Leaking water on the freezer side of my side by side refrigerator....a glaze of ice is on the bottom floor of freezer but no standing water inside.....has automatic ice maker and no apparent leaks on the plumbing or connection outside the unit......every 3 days or so a puddle of water will form on the floor under the left side of the freezer side (looking at the unit-left side)
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
