Question about Electrolux Refrigerators

1 Answer

Water leak front left corner of freezer.

Water keeps accumulating on the floor on the left side of the freezer. I believe the water is coming from inside the freeer because there was a huge block of ice in the floor of the freezer. Any ideas where the water is coming from and how I can fix this problem?

Your defrost drain line in the freezer is frozen closed.
You must turn off the fridge.
Remove the visible ice.
Use a hair dryer at the drain opening in the lower back of the freezer to melt the drain line ice.

I have a jenn air side by side and water seems to be leaking near the front left corner area at random times and when it does leak it is a slow drip.... thoughts?


Look in the freezer floor to see if you have ice built up and over flowing into the floor. If so you have a clogged drain line which is located in the freezer behind the lower basket in the litttle gap at the bottom of the back wall. If you don't have that, the water line that runs to the water in the door is located at the front left side as well and you can get to that by pulling off the bottom piece of plastic that runs along the bottom of the whole machine.

Ice maker leaking


Are you sure it's the ice maker that's leaking? We have this model & ours accumulates a HUGE iceberg in the bottom of the freezer, but the water seems to be coming out of the back, at the bottom of the back panel, where the vents are.

Have a TFX26ZPDA that occassionally leaks from front freezer corner. notice of leak anywhere, but find water under the fridge on the floor (facing fridge left bottom)..........why is this


I would check the bottom of the freezer. If its a solid block of ice then you have a frozen drain line. You may have to remove the back panel to access the drain or on some models there is a gap there its located in the back. If you take a turnkey baster and fill it with hot water and keep shooting it down the drain line it should eventually thaw out. The water is coming from your evaporator coils when they defrost.

Hope this helps _MJ_

Water leaking from door: top left door of my french door fridge (with freezer on bottom)--water leaking from the very bottom right corner of that left side door


your drain is clogged. if ice isbuilt up in the freezeer floor. when the freezer defrosts and the drain is clogged it has no where else to go other than ouot the front. pull everything out of the freezer and check twards the rear at the bottom. remove as much ice as possibile let set unplugged and door open for 3 hours. then take a cup of boiling water and pour it back there. if it dont drain repeat that process with the water-have a towel ready because if the water stays back there long enough it will get cold. you need to keep the water HOT. ice could be built up in the drain. hope this helps

Water accumulating in bottom of freezer and leaking onto floor


Yes the drain is clogged and the water that supouse to go through became ice so it make it worse.Put hot water in the drain hole until it runs through,it'll go to an evaporative pan on top of the compresor to keep it warm and vaporize the water.

Hotpoint csx22bc 21.7 cu. ft. leaking water on freezer side


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.

How to locate the water filter


Be sure to turn off the water valve before you start.

The water tube is probably kinked at the front lower left corner. Take the front lower grill off of the refrigerator and open the left door (freezer) and see if the translucent plastic tube is kinked where it comes from the bottom of the refrigerator and goes up into the door.
If it is, there is plenty of tubing to allow you to pull it out of the connector at the corner and cut off the kinked part and re-insert the tube.
Turn the water valve back on.
(This was the problem with my fridge and I had to show the Sears technician.  He had already told me to call a plumber and get a dedicated water line due to low water pressure!  Imagine the cost if I had believed him.  Works great - good flow and no leaks.)
Hope this helps.

Frigidaire Side-By-Side Refrigerator Leaks Water on Floor


I don't have the same refrigerator, but had a similar issue with a GE. Melt the ice at the bottom of the freezer. I think the water comes from the auto defrost feature. There should be a hole at the back bottom of the freezer that water would go into, and run to an evaporator pan under the refrigerator. The tube may be blocked that allows this water to drain, so it is backing up in the bottom of the freezer, and overflowing through the front bottom of the freezer to your floor.
