Remove the freezer back wall and lower panel. Remove the visible ice. Use a hair dryer to defrost the drain hole in the rear trough.

I have water dripping from the freezer into the refrigerator and refreezing in the drawers. How can I find where the water is coming from and correct the problem?


It is leaking due to a clogged drain line between the bottom-rear of the freezer section and the drain pan underneath the refrigerator. Remove cover in the back of the freezer section. there will be a small drain pan under the cooling coil. Remove ice, defrost with hot water and clean/blow the drain line.
Good luck!

Refrigerator Freezer has ice forming in the bottom inside freezer section. It appears to be leaking down the back inside compartment. The top section has an ice maker and water dispenser but I haven't had...


I believe you just described a defrost condensate blockage that is causing the leaking. There are many reasons for this happening for example water leaking from a water supply line for the dispenser or ice maker, a in the defrost pan, water leaking and draining through the refrigerator cabinet, but most are caused by a defrost drain line blockage. Below is a link that may be helpful so try to take it all in and use the parts that most refer to your specific problem, Thanks Sea Breeze

REFRIGERATOR LEAKING WATER INSIDE THERE IS NO


Remove the food and remove the rear freezer panel . Using a hair dryer , start in the middle , below the coils , defrosting , until you
see the drain hole . Use hot water to help defrost the hole . Once water starts going thru the hole , use a small hose inserted into the hole , and blow thru , to remove any unseen debris in the drain line . Use an ALUMINUM solid wire , 14-16 guage , with the insulation completely off , and insert one end into the drain hole as far as possible without any force . Wrap the other end about 1 1/2 to 2 turns , around the black rod (defrost heater) , above the hole . When refrig goes into defrost , the heat will transfer from the heater , to the wire , keeping the hole from freezing up again .

Water is collecting in the bottom of the refrigerator below the drawers. Water was also in the lunch meat drawer.


Your freezer defrost coils are probably frozen. Or the drain tube is plugged. Remove the rear panel from the freezer and defrost the defrost coils if necessary. Make sure that the drain tube underneath the coils is not plugged with ice or other foreign matter. You may have to thaw out the tube. If you don't make sure that the tube is clear, excess condensate will continue to drain into the fridge. Good luck!

okay, my name is marclavoris, what happens is your refrigerator goes into defrost, the heaters comes on and melts the freon off the coils, the water goes down in the drain, which you will see on the freezer side at the very bottom of freezer, you may need to take off inside back panel to access the hole. it is clogged up with alot of debri, so when it is backed up, it overflows under your bottom tray, it then goes into defrost again and it pushes water on your floor. To solve problem, clear the drain in the freezer

Kenmore Refridgerator leaking water into refridgerator compartment from freezer compartment


You most likely have a clogged drain. When you freezers goes into defrost every 8 to 10 hours. The frost that is melted during the defrost drains from the freezer either down through the fridge or out the back and down. Either way it drains into a pan under the fridge. This tube is either clogged or the drain it's self inside the freezer is. Most of the time I find peas stopping the water from draining from the freezer. When the water can't drain it leaks through the bottom of the freezer into the fresh food section of the fridge. You will need to fix this because it will cause other problems. The water that cant drain from the freezer refreezes and will end up destroying the foam in the bottom of the freezer. Water will also leak onto the controls located in the part between the freezer and fresh food section ruining you controls.
