The drain tube is attached to a tray at the base of the evaporation coils on the rear wall of the freezer section. You gotta remove the access panel to find and clear the drain. I recently worked on a frigidaire model and made a crude video:

Hi Kenneth - Thank you for your post! Generally speaking, the drain tube in a Frigidaire freezer is typically located in the back or back right side of the unit. The freezer will drain underneath into a drain pan. If there is anything else that I can help you with, please feel free to reconnect!

Your defrost drain hole is frozen closed.

Water pooling in the bottom freezer


You most likely have a blockage in the condensate drain line.You should turn off the frig.and empty the freezer,take a hairdryer and melt the ice on the bottom of the freezer.somewhere in the back on the bottom you will see a small drain under the evaporator.you may have to remove the cover of the evaporator to find it.once you locat the drain its just a matter of blowing out the line with a piece of 3/8ths plastic tubeing.

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.

Collecting water at bottom of frig inside under drawers.


begin by removing the grill on the front at floor level. look under there and you will see the evaporation pan. next pull the fridge out from the wall so you can get behind it. there you will see the tube. to unclog it you will have to disconnect it at the top and force hot water into it using a turkey baster.

My fridge is dripping water inside the fridge


If you have a frig with the freezer on top, I might be able to help. When you frig freezer goes into defrost,. It melts the ice on the coils in the freezer. The water from that process drains from the bottom of the freezer, down a tube to the bottom of the fridge. If that drain gets something in it and stops it up, the water will overflow and run into the fresh food section of your fridge. If you can locate this tube at the back of your fridge. You can blow into it. Notice if there is a restriction when you blow pressure in it. A lot of the times when you start to blow it will be hard to blow through it. Then what ever is in it will let go and blow out releasing the restriction. If this happens, you will need to take the back inside wall out of your freezer and locate what was stopping the tube up or it will end up back in the tube again.

The backed up ice must be completely removed and the line cleared all the way to the collection pan.make sure the frig is positioned so the water drains quickly. you can also wrap a piece of 10 gauge copper wire around the defrost heater and allow it to stick into the drain hole a few inches without touching the drain tube to keep it from refreezing again.

Is your problem fixed yet?


Yes, I fixed my problem of the plugged drain that caused the ice to melt onto the floor. Apparently, frostfree frigs have a drain that leads to a pan under the frig by way of plastic tubing from inside the freezer compartment. The drain tube end for my frig only had about 1/8" clearance above the pan bottom. The pan was dirty with an ENORMOUS amount of dust that had collected. So, I had to move the frig out from the wall, remove the back cover at the bottom of the back of the frig. This exposed the white tubing and the gross pan of dust and water paste. I cleaned the pan, disconnected the tubing from the clip holding it in the pan and trimmed about 1/4" off the end to create a bigger clearance into the drain pan.

Make sure the frig is unplugged before you do the job so the evaporator fan doesn't hurt you.

Now, I will have to clean from behind the frig at least once a year.

Hope this helps. Good luck.

Refrigerator/ water collecting under veggie bins


sounds like you do have a clogged drain tube, its self defrosting but the defrost water is pooling under hte crispers instead of in the drain pan under unit.so you ll either have to remove hte rear panel of freezer and locate the drain trough/ tube, and defrost it allowing for water to drain down, o rclear all the tube leading down to the drain pan.
