SOURCE: water leak from bottom freezer door

If you remove the back cover off the unit, you will see the compressor with an evaporator tray, make sure the little drain hose isn't plugged and that there is water in the evap tray from drain hose.

SOURCE: water drip at base of freezer door at bottom!

Have you had a chance to locate the location the water inside freezer? There are many reasons for this to happen I just can not say it would be a defrost condensate drain blockage. Most times it is. Every 8 to 10 hours your freezer defrost and the water is surposed to follow a pipe or drain through the refrigerator to a pan below refrigerator where the warm air from condenser evaporates the water back to the air inside your home. That drain line sometimes slowly becomes blocked and then the drain hole becomes clogged with ice. Once that happens the drain needs to be cleared. I will try to help you solve this so for now I need you to see if water looks as if it came from rear of freezer. Placing photos on Flickr would be great! So tell me where you see it and yes we may need to pull a few things out. This is nothing a few towels, hair dryer hot water and Clorox and a wet vacuum cannot handle. Sea Breeze

SOURCE: water leaks from freezer onto top shelves.

Remove the food and the ice maker from the freezer ( if equiped ) . 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 or Copper solid wire , ( a ground wire or fence post tie ) 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 .

How do I replace the water dispenser tube for a Kenmore Coldspot model # 106.53769201. The end of the line disintegrated at the spot where you put your glass under the dispenser.


Hello,

Ice makers and water dispensers are convenient to have on your refrigerator, but can also cause a lot of aggravation if they are not functioning properly.

If your water valves are not defective and you are still experiencing water or ice delays, you may have a clog in your refrigerator hose line.
Instructions and material needed to fix it up.

  • Towel,Flathead screwdriver,New water hose
  1. Turn off the water supply to the refrigerator and place a towel under the line to soak up any residual water that leaks from the hose when you remove it. Unplug the refrigerator.
  2. Disconnect the hose from the back of the refrigerator by pushing in on the collar while pulling the water tube out. If you have a model with an ice and water dispenser, you will need to disassemble the dispenser on the front of the freezer in order to completely remove the water hose.
  3. Remove the water drip tray from beneath the ice/water dispenser and locate the screws at the bottom of the cover (if any). Remove screws and pop off the panel that houses the dispenser. If the unit does not have screws, you will need to pry the cover off with a flat-nosed screwdriver.
  4. Once the cover is removed, you should be able to see the screws that hold the dispenser unit in place. Remove these screws and reposition the unit so you can free the water hose, by pulling it through the dispenser.
  5. Thread the new water line through the freezer door and reassemble dispenser unit. Push the new water hose into the fitting on the back panel, making sure it is properly seated. Turn on water supply and check for any leaks before moving the refrigerator unit back against the wall.
Good Luck and thanks for using fixya.

I have a side by side Kenmore refrigerator model #363-9562510. Water leaks from the bottom right corner of the freezer door from a small round cut out hole. This is the door that has the ice and water...


couple of things to check if you have a dispenser on this model there is a hose that goes up into the bottom of the freezer door you need to remove bottom kick plate and take a look at this...also if no water from that hose and its actually coming from the door you could have a ruptured line in the door itself.... next make sure the water is not actually coming from the freezer compartment as the drain in the freezer could be clooged and leaking over on defrost mode and out door...
hope this helps good luck...

Water is leaking from the bottom in the front left side of side by side maytag. water line is ok not leaking. can't see where it is coming from.


the water for the dispenser (ice/water dispenser in the freezer door) comes from under the frige then up thru the bottom hinge of the freezer door .. it then goes inside the door up to the dispenser .. its a plastic hose and it has to twist near the hinge each time the door is opened .. thats where it usually breaks or develops a pin hole leak .. you can replace the whole hose or just the damaged section if that easier ... since the bottom freezer.hinge where that hose comes up thru, is at the position of your leak then i suspect thats your trouble ... ..also check the condensate pan to make sure its not full .. thats a flat pan under the fridge ..you can usually get acess to it by removing the front kick panel at the bottom of the frige .. if thats full then look for a door seal leak (damaged rubber seal) ... a broken seal or open door will allow moisture to condense inside the machine ..that runs down into the condensate pan where it normally evaporates .. but a problem (like open door) will fill it up to overflow in time ....

Water leaking inside


Unforturnately, I have the same problem. You have to take the bottom panel of you freezer off. You will have ice built up. You will have to remove the ice. In the back, there is a hole that drains to the drip pan, that has become frozen solid. I have this problem about every 30 days. I wish I knew how to fix the problem. My dad has the same refigerator freezer, it's a problem for him too.
