On the freezer side at the bottom of the freezer coil there is a drain. There should be a thin aluminium filiament attached to the defrost element and feeding down into the drain tube. This filiament conducts heat from the element down the tube preventing ice forming in the tube and keeping it clear.

Leaking water


if this Is a Westinghouse this is a fare common occurrence , its coming from the auto defrost system as the evap fan down in the pan isn't working so all the water that should be evaporated isn't and it keeps adding to it till pan overflows , a quick ck with a good flashlight will allow you to see full pan , if water is coming from lower door , then your auto defrost drain hole is frozen up , unfortunately only way to access it is to mt fridge and unplug it for several days and allow it to thaw out then chase hole out with a pipe cleaner and replug it in , keep food away from this hole and you shouldn't have anymore problems

Model 795.71013.010 drip pan is full and leaking onto floor


Those models have problems with the defrost drain and defrost drain tube becoming blocked. Have you noticed water buildup on the floor of the freezer? See item 105A that is the drain tube.

That drain may have come unblocked because the refrigerator was off long enough for this ice to completely melt overflowing the ice trough seen in the video.

This is not your defrost water. Look closely at the water filter housing where the hoses connect to it. They are likely leaking. Let me know what you see...defrost water never gets that high...not even close.

Overflow of condensation water


If you have a water filter the water will leak past the filter to the pan if it's clogged up and needs changing.
The defrost water drains to the pan, so if you are having a lot of frost it could fill it up. Excess frost can be caused by leaky door gaskets and frequent door openings.
The condenser fan near the pan should be running when the compressor runs to help evaporate the water in the pan.

The pan will continue to have water in it. The defrost system water drips in the pan where it is evaporated by the condenser fan blowing on it.
Does this pan overflow? Is the water on the floor coming from this pan? Or could it be coming from the water inlet valve where the water supply comes in? Does the water come out the freezer or fridge door at the bottom?

Water leaking from bottom of refrigerator


THE WATER IN THE PAN IS FOR THE FAN WHICH COOL THE COMPRESSOR. MAKE SURE THE FAN IS WORKING. IT USES THE MOISTURE FROM THAT WATER TO COOL YOUR COMPRESSOR.

Drip pan needs emptying; had repairman out for other issues, now fridge keeps overflowing


The accumulated ice you saw is of course the source of the water. The refrigerator will eventually rid itself of the excess ice and the problem will therefore disappear on it's own after a while. The drip pan is normally filled with only a small amount of water, and that is dried up by the condenser cooling fan under the fridge. The pan is removable from most units, but not without making a mess. I suppose you can make and clean up the mess one time and be done with it.

Water leaking when in defrost mode


There is a defrost drain hose from the freezer down to the drip pan under the fridge. It sounds like the hose is not tightly connected, or obstructed, or has a hole in it. You should be able to see the hose on the back of the fridge.

Whirlpool side by side defrost drain pan overflowing


Maybe your machine has a leaky door, letting moist air inside. Make sure your compressor area is lint free. The heat from the compressor is supposed to evaporate that water. Make sure the pan is exactly in the right place, level, not cracked.

Water is steadily running/drippin into the drip pan...overflowing


The frirgerator has a defrost when it defrost it has to go somewhere check the drip pan and make sure it is not full.

If this continues then try checking the water line coming into the back and up the back of frig. try that first
