Just to expand on the excellent advice from woodchuckie - I had the same problem and these are the steps I took to resolve.
1) Remove the back panel. There are about 7 screws to undo.
2) The drain tube is towards the middle about 3/4 inch in diameter.
3) Remove the tube. I found a little black rubber 'flute' which I have now removed as I think this was causing some back pressure. Make sure the tube is clean and free from dusty gunk. Mine was anyway hence the removal of the flute.
4) Remove everything from the lower 2/3s of the freezer compartment. Remove the screws (some are covered by white caps) there are about six. You must remove all the screws up to the place where the top panel starts.
5) The back panel may be frozen in place. From a standing position reach down and grab the protruding plastic - pull up and out. The panel should loosen. Turn it sideways to remove it.
6) You should now see the freezer matrix and the frost free heater pipes at the bottom. If your like me you will see a block of ice at the bottom!!
7) I took a hair dryer (carfull of the water/electricity hazzard) and melted the ice (also be careful about melting the plastic of the freezer!! doh).
8) With a sponge remove the loose water.
9) The drain is in the middle and is difficult to get to.
10) I took a screw driver to the hole and jabbed at it.
11) Boil a kettle and fill the shallow tray around the drain. If your lucky the water will work through quickly and you'll hear it falling into the evaporation tray. If not then keep sponging the water out and replacing with boiling water (and have a few more jabs with a screwdriver!). Keep working it untill you have success.
12) Ensure that the interior of the freezer is dry ( I blew some air from the hair dryer through the drain and got someone on the drain at the back to confirm they could feel it coming through.
13) Replace all the plastics, back panel and screws. Put everything back in the freezer, plug it back in and set it to power freeze.

The whole thing took about 45mins - 1 hour.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Kenmore elite - Water dripping from freezer to refrigerator

Your refrigerator has a defrost drain blockage behind the evaporator in your your freezer compartment. Some models like yours have leak in the turns as the water leaves the freezer. I recommend that you unplug and remove the cover to the evaporator and check the defrost condensate tray below the evaporator. A wet vacuum cleaner and poring a solution with clorox in the drain will help you clean locate the leak and where the blockage may be downline.. I do have the manual on yours and can help you solve this. Some times this is a factory defect and I can help you solve the freezing drain problem. Let me know, Sea Breeze

SOURCE: Magic Chef CTB1722 refrigerator leaking water from

Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


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.

I would not be too alarmed about this. Most refrigeration systems will drip water off of the condenser coils while in use. This can most often be seen by cars that appear to "leak" only when the a/c is on. All that this "leakage"is is condensation. This is the same reason that window air conditioners need to have a slight downward tilt to the outside. This is also why they unfortunately, often freeze up.

If you're only noticing leakage while the refrigerator is running then I would bet even money that this is what's happening especially if the refrigerator is still staying cold. Most normally this condensation is caught in a drip pan which lets the water evaporate. However, during periods of extended use, especially with periods of high humidity i.e. the summer, sometimes the condensation is higher than what the drip pan can hold and you get leakage over the sides.

Unfortunately while this is a relatively minor problem about the only way you are going to eliminate this is to install a dehumidifier in your home, or simply tolerate it for a month or so during the summer. I would bet dollars to peso's that after mid august this won't be a problem.

One thing to note however, is that if you start to see that it is running constantly, or if you notice that it's not keeping cool, then it may be time to call in a service person. But for your particular problem I don't think that will be necessary.

Actually a pretty common concern... second time in two hours I've seen it. :D

I have a Samsung srs585hdis side by side fridge and there is quite a lot of water leaking from a cover behind the bottom veg baskets. What would cause this?


The evaporator condensate collection pan drain inside the fresh food section is clogged or blocked with ice. You will need to take the cover off to clean out the drain. Here is a link that shows the breakdown of parts for the fresh food section=> HERE

My fridge is leaking water from the top shelf down to the bottom and onto the floor


You most likely have a clogged defrost drain tube in the freezer, this diverts water through the damper into the fridge section in units with the freezer on top... Remove the back wall of the freezer and look beneath the tubing and you will see an ice pad... Use a turkey baster and warm water to reveal the drain hole, then force warm water down it until it is clear... Have some towels handy. Whirlpool Refrigerator Drain Strap 819043

It's possible that your fridge has a fan to cool down faster your food and to prevent frost. It stops when you open the door to to avoid losing the cold.

Depends if there is plastic tubing running inside fridge compartment. Shut off water to fridge. If that stops it you will have to look inside to see if there is visible plastic water tubing or if you can get to it from inside the fridge. Maybe the water line has a defect or got pinched and somehow split. Then turn on water, find leak and splice in a replacement section.
