SOURCE: water dripping inside fridge

jeets, remove the bottom panel from the freezer by removing the 2 quarter inch screws up front. See if you have a sheet of ice under it. If you do, you probably have a frozen drain tube in back. When the unit goes into defrost the water is running down the air vents instead of the drain tube. If this is the case, you will have to remove the back panel in the freezer and clear the drain hole. Use hot water if it is frozen over....Catriver..post back.

SOURCE: WHERE IS THE WATER COMING FROM UNDER MY FRIDGE?

if you do a full defrost manuely, all the water on the evap. coil will melt and easily fill up the pan. Possibly door was not closed properly recently and there was a build up on the coil. Do a proper defrost and start again.

SOURCE: Zanussi frost free fridge freezer leaking

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.

SOURCE: water dripping insie the fridge

Hello,

Water accumulating on the ceiling of the refrigerator is usually caused by a clogged drain in the freezer section beneath the evaporator. The clogged drain will cause water from the self defrost cycle to leak into the divider between the freezer and refrigerator. This water may then freeze and cause condensation build-up on the refrigerator ceiling. The solution to this problem begins with unclogging the drain. It may also be necessary to remove the entire freezer/refrigerator divider to thoroughly dry the insulation in the divider. Occasionally the insulation needs to be replaced to prevent a recurrence of the problem. This can be a big job – you may want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician.

Water runs down the inside back of the unit and freezes


Our fridge has a plastic hose running down the rear of the fridge and water was coming inside and running down inside the fridge walls and out the bottom of the door when we opened it. I called a repair man and he blew the plastic hose out and reinstalled it and had no trouble since. Our fridge has a water tray under neath the fridge that this hose is suppose to run into. The tray dries itself out so you don't have to empty it.

We have got Zanussi Fridge/Freeze, water from the fridge area keeps running under the vegtable's drawer area, which I need to wipe/clean constantly.


Check that the little drain hole at the back is not clogged it sounds like this is the case,its easy to clean try something soft like a straw to push in to clear, Normally I get a mouthful of hot water and squirt this down the straw,Works well for me...Good luck.

The fridge compartment was heavily iced on the back of the inside it has now stopped working both fridge and freezer compartments no longer work


The fan blower and/or heater assembly has failed leading to ice build up inside. However it could be more simple 'cos the drain from the freezer to the pan under the refrigerator is plugged up - most likely with ice. You can see this drain line behind the refrigerator. When the freezer goes through an automatic defrost this drain line is used to get the water out of the freezer. Try a thorough manual defrost to see if the line opens up - you will have quite a bit of water in the tray underneath and it might overflow. That is probably all you will have to do to fix this problem.
Basically three things to look for: clogged drain, bad defrost timer, bad mullion heater strip.

I have a zanussi ZI 920/9K and the fridge has water under the salad drawer every day but the drain hole is not blocked - what else might it be?


two solutions
1...a door seal leak
2...you are puting food in that is warm or not covered and its the condensation from these that collects on the shinny surface of the salad drawer.....
remember,every time you open the door warm air from the kitchen replaces the cold air inside the fridge,it does not dry the air like a dehumidifier....
hence water droplets gather.....

Hello Mr Barnard

Welcome to fixya

You said, You have a zanussi fridge freezer combination, it is a frost free model, And you're developing lots of frost in the freezer which never used to happen and the fridge is not getting cold, some condensation does appear inside the fridge, it is 2years old.

Frost could mean a few things.
Is the freezer cold but the fridge not?
If so the freezer may be so full that the articles are covering the air vents in the back that share the cold air with the fridge.
I've have seen the freezers packed to the hilt!

More things to check.
Is the condenser in the back or under the front of the fridge. If it is under the front of the fridge you must remove the plastic grill`(The condenser is the thin black metal tubing that runs back and forth to make up your condenser). This needs to be free of dust and have air passing over and through it!
they sell refrigerator brushes for this at the hardware store.
I have had customers that never ran the brush under there ever and had 1 to 2 inches of dust and lint
under there between the tubes.After a few hours it was cool the next day it was cold!

The freon level pressure should be checked in case you have a leak.
The thermostat may be bad.

Let me know what works for you.
Huuum

LARGE WATER LEAK ON FLOOR


the reason is probably that the drain hole in the freezer (i assume this is a frost-free type) is blocked. take off the rear panel of the freezer and you will probably see a block of ice at the bottom. melt off with a hairdryer and free the drain with hot water making sure that water flows freely away
