Water on floor and ice on freezer bottom

We have noticed water on our hardwood floor outside the refrigerator on the freezer section side. First thought ice had fallen from dispenser and left to melt. Happened a few more times and then discovered the bottom floor inside freezer covered with ice. Are these 2 related and is there a problem with the defrost cycle?

The problem is that the drain hole inside the freezer in the lower back wall is clough and the water from defrost doesn't go through that drain to the evaporative pan in the back by the compresor ,you need to clear thatdrain first meltting the ice in that hole with hot water until it goes through then once in a while (every 3,4 months put bleach into the drain to keep it clear .

Clean the drain pan and drain line in the back of the freezer section underneath the evaporator coil. Make sure water drains when you pour it in.
Good luck! :)

The drain heater goes into the drain,not outside it.
You need a longer drain probe to push all the way through the drain.
Look underneath for a kink in the drain tube.

Water on floor under unit & ice bottom of freezer


By going online, saw several posts re this problem. In short, the water drain was clogged and there was also a problem with the defrost timer. Service man blew out the drain line with compressed air and installed a new timer. Voila! Problem fixed. Interestingly, the serviceman found a wad of what looked like putty, but was sticky like gum in the drain area. He said he had never encountered anything similar.

Frigidaire Side-By-Side Refrigerator Leaks Water on Floor


I don't have the same refrigerator, but had a similar issue with a GE. Melt the ice at the bottom of the freezer. I think the water comes from the auto defrost feature. There should be a hole at the back bottom of the freezer that water would go into, and run to an evaporator pan under the refrigerator. The tube may be blocked that allows this water to drain, so it is backing up in the bottom of the freezer, and overflowing through the front bottom of the freezer to your floor.

Ice forming in Freezer Basin


Hi. That is the only drain for the evaporator water during the defrost cycle. Take the back aluminum cover off again and pour hot water into the drain. If it won't drain, take a hose and put it over the drain and blow into it. That will remove the sludge in the trap and it will drain good now. I've seen alot of nice hardwood floors damaged with this problem. Good luck, Mack
