SOURCE: leaking water

dianaluscou,

The freezer has a drain hole in it typically in the back at the bottom. This is clogged and needs to be cleared out in order to stop the water problem in the refrigerator section. Remove everything from the freezer and if needed defrost. Look for the drain hole and you can pour hot water or use a hair dryer to melt the ice in the drain. Once it is unclogged, the water problem should stop.

I just did this about 6 months ago on my own refrigerator/freezer.

SOURCE: accumulation of water in bottom of fridge

You probably need a new door deal for the freezer. When you cet too much condensation in the freezer, it drains down the back of the refrigerator section during the defrost cycle. Check under the produce bins for a drain. If you don't have one, you're not alone. I used to have have to wipe mine out every other day until I finally replaced the seal.

SOURCE: water accumulation under crisper bins

Check that the hole at the back of the fridge is not blocked with gunge.  There should be a drip tray at the rear with 2 slopes towards the hole where the condensation drains to.  Some cabinets come with a little rod to clear the blockage.  The rod may live in the hole alowing water to drain around it.  Have a peek!

SOURCE: I have a side by side refrigerator. There is water at the bottom of the freezer. It is thick enough to freeze the bottom with the first pull out storage shelf. I can't figure out where the water is co

Hi, You need to get to the defrost drain. Remove the ice (do not use a sharp object)
Once you can get to the rear freezer panel, remove the screws and take the rear panel off. Now you should see the drain pan. Remove the ice (Hair dryer works good) and locate the drain hole. Remove the ice in the drain hole and flush hot water through it. You might need to push a wire through it or you can flush water through it with a baisting seringe. I hope this helps. If I can help further, please let me know.

Thanks
Vic

SOURCE: we have water laying on the bottom shelf every day

Under the evaporator coils is a drain. It catches the defrost water and directs it to a pan above the compressor where it evaporates. The drain clogs and water cascades down the back wall ending up under the crispers. Get a shop vac and open the drain.

Where can I access the defrost drain hole in my Kenmore model 253.74879404 Refrigerator? Disassembling the freezer did not work.


I've used used a compressor for that drain hole at the back of the fridge. A hanger wire will work too. I've never tried it but maybe a can of compressed air might work also.
The water drain line is plugged and that little catch tray is overflowing. That's why you're ending up with water under your bins inside the fridge. The problem is not in the freezer or else you'd have a skating rink on the floor of the freezer.
I don't recognize the photos exactly but they're all the same principle. Take everything out of the fridge , including the racks. It's far easier than o find the screws and disassemble the drain "catchall".
Good luck.

Water accumulates under vegetable bin (bottom of refrigerator) every couple of days


If this is an older style top mount refrigerator than most likely the drain is clogged causing the water to leak into the fridge during the defrost process. What's the model number?

Well I have the same problem and my husband had to shut the water off. But I was reading that its the little hole at the far back on bottom that gets clogged up or frozen. I looked and it is that problem but Im not sure how tp fix it. I read that hot water and vinegar should do the trick. GOOD LUCK.

Water drips from freezer and runs down to bottom of refrigerator, under slide out storage bins. After a few days, you need to mop up water. Otherwise it works great. What is wrong.


Check your door seals they could of inavertntly been pulled from the channels. Allowing air from the outside to get in. Just a quick guess.

Water leaks under veg bins.. Cannot tell where it is coming from. Accumulates slowly


This refrigerator look like mine (Picture).
Mine did the same thing. If it is the same then this is what I did.
Look under the there is a collection tray.
This tray collect the water.
At the bottom of the refrigerator (Inside where the water collect) is a cap.
The cap has cap would have holes or a slot that allow the little water to fall to the collection tray.
Mine has slots and was block up.
clean it out and that should do it.
The water should be able to fall to the tray at the bottom.
I do hope this help you.

Water accumulates under vegetable bins and spills out the front


the water is coming from the freezer when is defrosts. the drain line is in the back wall of the freezer and may be clogged up with ice. clean out the freezer and pour some hot water in the very back of the freezer, this will hopefully unclog the drain. if not, then you have to take the back wall out of the freezer to get directly to the drain line. there should just be a couple screws holding it; it is just an aluminum or plastic panel.

There could be many things that cause these symptons. Defrost timer not working, bad door seals, or lack of freon. It may be less expensive to replace the frige than repair it.
