    My Maytag is leaking underneath. I turned off the water source to the ice maker and the leaking appears to have stopped.

    Thank you,

    My fridgidaire has frozen water that accumulates at the bottom of the freezer. There is also water that is leaking from underneath. I have a side by side with an ice maker.

    Thank you

    My Danby Millennium fridge is leaking and ruining my wood floor. The drip trap on top of the compressor regularly fills up (once a week-ish) and then just overflows onto the floor!! There seems to be no solution other than pull out the fridge once a week and empty the drip tray. I thought of installing a small plastic pipe to drain the drip tray, but too many other jobs to do right now... The fridge appears to be working normally, except for occasional ice forming on the inside back wall. I would like to know what is the likely problem, and if it is fixable. Thank-you, hoping in advance!

Condensation water build up inside refrigerator

The tray underneath your fridge is probably clogged, and overflowing. There is an evap tray underneath, and if it does not get adequate airflow, it will overflow, and leak out.

Clean the bottom front vents, and underneath the fridge to ensure adequate airflow.

Hi there, I know that most units have a drip tray at the back or under the unit itself. well the older ones anyway, not sure with really new ones, but they shoukd. these trays hod water condensation and any drainage from the fridge itself. These trays sometimes have a coil in them which heats and help to evaporate the waterso that it does not overfill and spill out. these trays can become overfilled, the heating elemet can stopworking or

My whirlpool refrigerator Model ET18PKX6W00 leaks water under vegetable bins

Check behind the bins for a condensation tray/hose. Most refrigerators have these as they develop condensation due to the temperature differences when opening and closing the door. The tray catches the condensation, and drains it to a tray under the fridge. Here it evaporates when the compressor runs. Sometimes things block the tray or the hose gets clogged with gunk. clean out the tray/hose and hopefully your problem will end.

I came home to find water underneath my that a clogged drain?

Under your fridge you have a pan that will catch condensation created. This pan usually has a sponge or a device to obsorb the condensation as well as this pan must stay cleaned. Second item to look at is if you have an icemaker you could possibly have a leaking line. Or to go back to your tray, be sure it is in the possition it is suppose to be in.

Condensation is forming on the glass door and dripping onto floor boards. How do we stop the condensation. It does say to empty drain tray but we cannot find it and instruction manual does not tell you...

The drain tray is under the fridge often times set back a little bit. Remove the kick plate by pulling from one side then the other side, strait forward till it pops off. The kick plate is a plate as close to the floor as you can get on the front side of the fridge going the entire width of the bottom of the fridge. Now get eye level with the underneath of the fridge. Center your view on the underneath of the fridge. The drain tray is right there. Pull it out, carefully as it is probably full of water, and dump the water out of it. Replace the drain tray and then replace the kick plate. Check the drain pan once a week or so and you should have no more water leaking on your floor. Hope this helps.

There seams to be water coming out from underneath the fridge, especially in the summer. I have just re-newed the seal but still find there is a pool of water coming from underneath. Can you shed some...

Hi Lyn, It is most likely condensation from humid air condensing on your coolant line, the one that carries the cooled refrigerant from the condenser. This fits with your description of it being worse in summer, when the air has a higher level of humidity. Your best bet is to put a shallow tray under your fridge to catch the water. Alternatively, pull the fridge out and feel the lines when it's running. When you find the one that is very cold, see if you can wrap it to insulate it so that moisture in the air does not condense on it.

My hotpoint future fza34 is leaking from underneath

you need to get to the back of fridge and ul notice a tray full of water ontop of the compressor. remove tray and empty water out. when replacing v important to make sure it is sitting level on compressor again.

there is also an underlaying prob here, maybe alot of condensation on shelves also??

ensure doors are closing properly and saels are in good shape, also avoid putting warm food in fridge and make sure liquids are covered. this should stop tray filling with water and leaking

Refrigerator is leaking from the bottom


Check the hose under your fridge that drains condensation and such into a catch tray. Make sure the hose is draining properly.
Blow air through the tube to make sure it is not clogged. A coat hanger wire can be inserted to break up clogs. An alternative method is to use a bicycle pump to force air through the drain hole to remove any obstruction. Vacuum dust bunnies from under the fridge to allow free flow of the air. Most refrigerators periodically blow warm air across the condensation tray. The warm air dries the condensation in the tray.
Good luck........

Refrigerator leaks underneath

check to make sure the drain pan under the fridge is not over filling, out of place or cracked. The water that collects there during defrost is evaporated by the condenser fan, if the fan is not running or it and the condenser coil are fouled with dust clean them and the issue should go away.
