Why is water pooling in the bottom of my refrigerator ?

Because the condensate is overflowing the tray designed to collect it for evaporation. If you have been experiencing lots of hot humid weather lately, the defrost cycle may be generating more water than normal.. Also make sure that the air flow under the unit by the fan is not obstructed so as to speed up the evaporation process. If tray is over compressor make sure compressor is nice and clean on top so more heat gets to the tray.

Ice maker overfills the ice tray, ejecting large block of ice instead of individual cubes.

What is your model number? Sounds like you may need a new icemaker. Sometimes when the icemaker motor goes bad it causes the icemaker to keep filling even though it hasn't kicked out the ice in there. Also, are you sure there isn't 2 valves on the refrigerator?

Too much water at refilling of trays causes an overflow and a big blob of ice which clogs the mechanism.What is my problem?

If the tray is not emptying completely, this would cause an overflow. If the tray is emptying ok, I would suspect the solenoid valve that opens to supply water to the ice maker.

How do I locate and clean drip pan on LG french refrigerator?

the evaporation pan is under the refrigerator, over the top of the compressor unit. Sometimes fungi or algae can grow in there causing a mildew smell. If you can get access to it you can pour a mixture of baking soda and water into the inner part of the pan to destroy the plant matter and remove smells. About 1 tsp in 1/2 cup of water should do it.
Alternatives: 1/2 cup water with 50 ml white vinegar, or 20 mls bleach should do it. Be sparing with the water - it has nowhere to go but the floor after it overflows the evaporation tray.

My Westinghouse fridge freezer, model WSE6100SF, was affected by a power cut lasting 3 days. It now smells, but not inside. Is there a drip tray under the fridge that collects the water?

yes there is but most are not removeable.... remove the cover in the rear of the fridge, the pan is located around the fan motor that's underneath the fridge... I would try pinesol, bleach or odoban to kill the smell..... good luck

Model RF267ABBP water standing under drawer

Most likely cause is the evaperator tray has frozen over. This causes the tray to overflow with the defrosted ice every time it goes into defrost (every 8-12 hours). You can start by pulling off the back wall inside of the freezer,and inspecting the evap tray. You will need a phillips screw driver and a flat head to do so.

Drain pan over flowing

The rubber seal on the water filter is bad . Replace the filter in the bottom kick plate . When the filter goes bad , water will drip into the drain pan , causing it to overflow .

Tray under fridge overflowing

Your condenser fan may not be running, which will cause the water in the pan to not evaporate.

Frigidaire refrigerator has water coming out underneath, there's no water under the refrigerator, the freezer was left open and was iced over. Now the freezer is not iced over and the water is gone.

You should have an evaporator tray under the refrigerator. A certain amount of condensate is to be expected during the cooling cycle and it drips into a collector tray under the refrigerator. Heat from the compressor causes this condensate (water) to evaporate. If the tray has come out of place, or is missing or damaged, the water will not collect in one spot to evaporate and will run out under the refrigerator. Also, if the automatic defrost cycle for the freezer is not set correctly or is malfunctioning, that may also cause an overabundance of condensate to be produced and it can overflow the condensate tray. If this has been helpful, please rate me accordingly. Thanks and good luck.

Refrigerator has water leak

Had the same problem with mine. Got a technician to have a look. Inside the fridge at the back there's an overflow tray. CHeck if this is not blocked. Clear it by putting a tray behind your fridge under the overlfow pipe and pour hot water through the overflow tray inside the fridge. Sometimes food gets stuck in there and nobody thinks to clear this out. Mine was easily unblocked and now its stopped leaking.
