You can deal with it once for all by pouring warm water into the drain pipe to clear any blocks and sopping it off with a sponge..

You have a plugged defrost drain. On hot point refrigs this is fortunatley a very easy repair you can do yourself. remove bottom basket and lowest shelf, ( for sake of room you may remove all shleving. I usually only remove the bottom 2) you will see a ledge coming up from freezer floor to under a rear cover. there will be ice build up on this ledge. clear all of the ice you see and you will uncover the drain hole. next flush hot tap water into the drain hole until it is clear. I use a turkey baster or large syringe to do this but you can push your finger in and out kind of like a plunger to clear the blockage then pour hot water thru line until if flows freely.
If you have any other questions leave them here and I'll be glad to assist any way I can. thanks Peyton

Every few days I find a small puddle of water near the front left corner under the freezer of my TFH22JR.


Guys, . . . small puddle of water on the FRONT left side?? Y'know, . . under the FREEZER door??!? Maybe check the John Guest quick connect/disconnect fitting at the bottom of the freezer door just behind the front cover. It may not be fully connected, or may have a seal worn-out.

I( find a puddle of water on floor at front left hand corner on freezer side..I took the freezer drawer out and found ice build up under it ,could this cause my problem.. this happened about every 24 hours...


The problem with your refrigertor is that the defrost drain is plugged up. After you get the ice buildup out of the freezer section you will have to locate the drain system. It is in the back of the freezer at the very bottom.It needs to be cleaned out. Hope this at least leads you in the right direction.

Water is leaking out from the bottom of the freezer


Below the freezer coil is a drain trough. Sounds like it is frozen. Use a hair drier to melt it and poor baking soda with warm water down it.

GE Profile leaking onto floor


Clean the drain pan and drain line in the back of the freezer section behind the cover underneath the evaporator coil. (hint: use turkey baster with hot water) Make sure water drains when you pour it in. If it doesn't - also clean drain tube on the back of the unit behind the cover. When done - put the tube exactly where it was.
Good luck! :)

YOUR DRAIN IS CLOGED.LOOK AT THE BOTOM BACK PORTION OF YOUR FREEZER. (INSIDE) WHEN YOUR FREEZER GOES INTO DEFROST THE WATER HAS TO GO SOMEWHERE. IF THE DRAIN IS CLOGGED IT WILL FLOW OUT THE FREEZER DOOR.

If you have an ice maker, check for a leak in the water line. If no ice maker, there could be a leak in the pan for the defrost water, or the drain hose is out of position. Also, check to see if the water is actually leaking out from the freezer door. That would indicate a clogged drain. The bottom inside the freezer may have water, or ice on it. If so, suspect the clogged drain.

Look for obstruction at the drain tray for the freezer. Common to have plastic wrap sucked into that area.Or gunk in the drain line. Blow through line to insure the gunk is not an issue.

Water puddling in bottom of freezer and freezing


the drain in the back of the freezer is probably full of ice. you need to pull out panel and use heat from a blow dryer to unplug the drain. then take a small gauge copper wire long enough to extend into the drain a couple of inches and loop it around the black heating element then when it goes yhrough defrost it should keep this from reaccuring

Occasional leak at the bottom of the freezer side kenmore 25354703400 side by side


sounds like a drain clog in the freezer compartment above. remove the freezer rear panel and totally defrost the evaporator area, directly under the evap you see( under all taht ice) a small drain hole that has become frozen over, try defrosting with either a hair dryer( not a heat gun too much heat youl melt everything) or by pouring hot water donw the drain until you get a free flow of water down the tube. after its clear reassemble and you should be fine
