Refridgerator will not cool. Freezer works fine. Noticed a pool of water on floor then started to cool again. after a few days quit cooling.


Check the water drain hole in bottom of unit. If plugged water cannot get to catch and pan and evaporate with the heating element.

There is water in the refridgerator


You have a disconnected defrost drain pan. You will need inspect the ceiling of your refrigerator compartment and find the drain hose going from your freezer to your fridge then the drain pan. Sometimes this is molded into the plastic at the back of your fridge and it simply leaking out the joint. Start by defrosting your freezer, then pour water in the freezer itself while checking the ceiling of the fridge for water traces. Keep a wet/dry shop vac handy or a mop to keep up with the excess drainage. Then reattach the hose to the little drain nozzle when you find it.

Water collection in fridge


.you need to check the drain to make sure it is not clogged or blocked that would stop the water defrosted from you evaporator coil from draining into the drain pan.rare occasions the unit will stay in a defrost mode while trying to cool causing alot more water to be draining.good luck with your fridge.let me know how things go for you.

Refridgerator drips water from the cold air vent.


if your freezer is on top,you most likely have an overflowing defrost drain. there is a drain that starts in the freezer and continues down to the drip pan. start at the top and work your way down.

Is there a drainage plug or hose on the air conditioner? It's leaking.


To increase the efficiency of the air conditioner's cooling to meet US energy requirements, most manufacturers eliminated the traditional drain plug. Instead, they switched to a design that used the extracted moisture from the room to help evaporatively cool the condenser.

To do this, the traditional fan blade was replaced with a 'sling blade' which was a fan blade with a rim or ring around it. The drain plug or drain hole in the bottom of the pan was eliminated and replaced with overflow notches in the back edge. Along with a solid piece drain pan, this provided a pool of water for the edge of the sling blade to dip into and pick up water to 'sling' or spray around the compartment to create evaporative cooling. The overflow notches established the maximum depth of the water pool and are also the lowest place when installed properly.

Although this is more efficient, this has caused 2 problems: increased noise as the water is slung around and water spray from the side air vents.

Persons have drilled holes through the pan or back edge as drains. This is not recommended as it negatively effects the colling ability of the unit and could lead to a voided warranty or premature failure.

Instead, insure that there is adequate pitch with the installation and make sure the overflow notches are kept clear.

If you 'need' a drain hose, my suggestion would be to drill into drain pan's back edge or the rear potions of the sides. The hole should be at the same level as the overflow notches. Once the drain hose is installed, block/cover the overflow notches to redirect the excess water to the drain hose instead.
