SOURCE: The freezer leaks water onto the bottom of frig

Hi, It sounds like the defrost drain is plugged. You will need to remove the rear inside freezer panel and remove the ice covering the drain hole. Once the drain hole is clear, flush it out with hot water to make sure it is open. I use a baisting syreinge to flush them. Sometimes the dust from under the refrigerator gets in the drain and plugs them. I have also seen the drain tube under the refrigerator hanging down to low and blocked off where it goes into the drain pan.
Please let me know if this helps you at all or if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

Why is there water dripping from the bottom of the water/ice dispenser


The solenoid valve that controls the water dispenser is leaking internally. It will be a double valve (one for ice, the other for chilled water) located at the bottom of the frame in the back of the unit. To find it, just trace where the plastic tubes originate from.

Easy to replace.

These leaks are sometimes caused by particles getting trapped on the valve seat. This can be prevented by use of an inline water filter on the copper supply line.

The inside of freezer is leaking from back wall - there is no ice maker. water that leaks is freezing and taking up space. what can be causing this


the drain line is clogged causing the ice build up .the frig has to defrost every 6 to 8 hours so every time it defrosts is when it will leak ..you will have to defrost the frig manually ..turn it off. open the doors. let it defrost. remove the thick ice on the bottom ..after its defrosted take the bottom an back panel off.. un plug frig first !! drainline is in the back in the middle of the freezer. unclogg it hot water or shop vac be carefull good luck!! drain line should go to a pan under the frig, in the back make sure it drains before putting back together

Might should check for water leak in the main line that runs at the bottom of the frig behind the grill in front. If not there check all lines in back and the water solenoid sometimes it will have a hairline crack that will cause this. BB

Water leaks from under the middle but not all the time maybe once or twice per month


condensation normally drains thru a tube at the bottom of the frig to a drip pan under the condenser coil (under the frig) .. the water normally just evaporates from the pan .. if there is too much moisture in the frig, that usually means a door is ajar (not closing completely) or the seal on the door is not sealing properly .. warm moist air from the room getting in will cause too much condensation .. the drip pan may overflow ... you should check the drip pan for damage (clean the condenser while you are down there) .. also check the tube that carries the condensation (back bottom of the frig) .. it has a one way valve (lets water out only) that becomes stuck sometimes and needs cleaning.. if there is a large amount of moist things in the frig then that an cause the problem as well .. just put those things in plastic bags or containers to eliminate that problem ..
