Beth, sounds like your water reservoir in your fridge section has cracked. To get to it, remove the lower bins and shelves. You'll see it mounted on the back wall. After you see it, test by filling a cup of water from the dispenser on the freezer and watch the reservoir for the leak. To replace it, you'll need to contact your local appliance parts store and provide them with the complete model number (located on a sticker inside your fridge). It'll start with 3 digits then a decimal point then more digits (xxx.xxxxxxxx). Most reservoir replacement kits come with instructions and all the hardware you'll need. Hope this helps!

A lot of water leaking


You probably have a clogged drain line. Unplug the fridge for 24-48 hours with a towel by the drip pan for a simple fix.

Water is dripping into pan under fridge and overflowing onto floor. looks like water is dripping from filter at bottom. what can i do?


Check to see looks like the container is already full. You have to remove the tray full of water and then insert it again. It will happen again and again ( overflowing water) so you need to periodically check the container pan if water is full.
Also by checking periodically that pan, you will minimize rust build up. You will need to wipe around it with soft cloth or rags so the body of your refrigerator will not decaying due to rust built up. This will destroy the metal parts of the fridge.
Good luck.

My Kemore refrigator is leaking water from bottom,I keep moping and I put news papers under to absorbe the water.where is the water leaking from ? Its about 8years not sure, but never a problem.It has a...


Under your fridge, there is a drain hose which goes into a removable tray on the bottom of your refrigerator.This is where the water from the automatic defroster goes. The heat from the motor dries the water up, but occasionally the hose becomes plugged, or does not set into the tray. You may have to pull the fridge away from the wall, go behind the fridge, get down on the floor, find the tray, in the front or back, check that the hose is in place and patent. If the tray is full of water, there may be a heating or evaporating element that is not working to dry up the water, in which case you could always manually empty the tray till you you find a solution. Good luck.

Water from defrosting leaks into the bottom of the freezer and freezes into a solid sheet of ice, which I chip out every 1 to 2 weeks. Kenmore bottom freezer refrigerator Model 795.65002400.


Hello,

If water leaks inside your refrigerator
(and it WILL, at some point) you can fix
it yourself.

In the good old models, one had to defrost the
fridge every few months manually.

In the recent models, the fridge defrosts automatically,
once or twice a day, and the water is supposed to drain
down a long drain tube into a pan located at the bottom of
the fridge. This collected water in the pan evaporates
by the heat under the fridge.

Now the drain tube can get clogged, by food debris and/or
ice. Thus when the water cannot drip through the drain tube
the water drips inside the fridge.

The drain tube is located behind the fridge, which is pretty
easy to take it out and clean. However usually the clog is
not in the long tube but in the connector assembly located
in the backside of the fridge that leads to the long drain tube.

To get to the connector assemble, you need to unscrew and
take out the back panel of the freezer compartment. You would
see the evaporator coil and a tray under the coil where the water
is supposed to drip through. If you find the tray completely frozen
with ice, let it melt off. To speed up melting, you may blow
hot air via a hair dryer. Once the ice is clear, you should see
a drain hole in the middle of the tray. This could be clogged,
which needs to be unclogged.

Next unscrew and open the thermostat control assembly located
in the inside of the back of the refrigerator compartment just above
the light bulb fixture. Once you take the take the cover off (you will
also have to take the knobs out) you will see a small tray cup about
2" x 2" x 1/2" into which water from the top freezer compartment
drain hole is supposed to drain. Pull out the tray cup, and if clogged,
unclog it, clean it and put it back.

To check if the drain works ok, pour some water on the tray
under the evaporator coil (top freezer compartment) and see if it
immediately drains into the tray located at the bottom of the fridge
at the floor level. If it does, you got it; and you can assemble things
back in the reverse order you took the pieces apart.

Needless to say, use a vacuum cleaner with a long suction tube to clean
out all the collected mess under the fridge. No matter how good
your housekeeping is, the bottom of the fridge will be full of dust.

Good luck and hope this helps

Water is leaking from the bottom of the fridge. Why? It is destroying the wooden floor. Refrigerator is Whirlpool Model # ED25UEXHW01


Some water dripping under the refrigerator is normal. There is supposed to be a drip tray to collect it, and there is not so much that it can't evaporate. Check to see that the tray is still there, in the right place, and not cracked. If the drip tray is full of water, then you have another problem. If your air is humid, you would get more water during the defrost cycle and the water in the drip tray wouldn't evaporate very fast. If your freezer door seal is not air tight, you would get more water to defrost. My guess is, the drip tray is out of place or cracked.

My frig is leaking water & bottom tray is full


you need to change the filter on the bottom of the refrigerator, take off the outside cover on bottom of fridge and on the left hand side right above the tray that keeps filling up there is a round filter that unscrews. unscrew it and replace the filter. You can get the filters at Lowes or Home Depot for about 20 bucks, hope this helps.

Samsung Fridge Freezer leaking water


hi August.
Cause: A blocked defrost drain is one of the most common causes of water leakage. This happens when food particles or other debris clogs up the drain hose, which can lead to ice buildup and, eventually, water leaking out of the freezer and refrigerator.
3 common refrigerator problems you can easily fix yourself

The freezer drain hose will drain the defrost water into a drip pan at the bottom of the freezer. When this pan becomes full, it will leak water onto the floor. This is a regular maintenance task whenever the freezer defrosts. Empty the drip pan during the defrost cycle.
How to Fix Water Leaking From the Bottom of Freezer

Why is my fridge leaking water on the floor? If the refrigerator is leaking water it's possible that the refrigerator has a clogged or freezing defrost drain. If the defrost drain freezes the defrost water will overflow the drain and drip down to the bottom of the compartment, If enough water accumulates in the bottom it can run out onto the floor.
