    I think I solved the problem by tightening a compression fitting.

It may only be when your ice maker is filling. I hope you found the problem. The fitting sounds accurate towards your problem though.

you may need to clean the drain tube again. the only other place that water may come from is the ice maker if it is over flowing. this however would be very obvious. use some thing like a length of cloths line cable to "snake" the drain after you defrost it. the fastest way to defrost it is to use hot water and a turkey baister. good luck.

SOURCE: so water leaks out onto floor-Jennair side by side

THERE IS A DRAIN LINE HEATER ON MOST UNITS now days, if yours is an older one what you need to do is make sure that it's level, and that the drain line is cleared so that the water has a place to go when it thaws during the defrost cycle.

SOURCE: drain tube gets clogged

I suggest using a sink snake. After the clog is out, then use drano or equivelant.

SOURCE: Clogged defrost drain tube.

It should be just below the evaporator coils. The panel covering the fan should also be the one covering the drain tube. You'll probably have to pull the shelves out to get the panel off (depending on the model, sometimes you'll have to pull the back panel off too, sometimes it's just on the top.)

Water leaking on floor of 2005 camry AC


Ok well had same problem. The drain hose is blocked and is backing up and coming out of top of drain plug and tube into the car so the tube hanging down in engine bay left side of motor may be blocked with mud dirt or something else so check it and with aircon on if the water is not dripping out of the drain tube then it is blocked

Frigidaire FFHS2311LWD has water pooling up and freezing bottom drawer and lower vent. Drain tube doesn't seem to be clogged. Water leaks onto floor some days.


the drain tube is most likely clogged. if the lower vent is freezing up there is no way to confirm because it is covered with ice. the reason water leaks onto the floor is, the refrigerator goes into defrost, frost melts and runs down the ice to the door. use a hair dryer to remove all ice, then use hot water to check drain. drain tube may be up to a foot long and may have a trap. you may have to go in through the back to gain access to the drain

Usually a sign of a plugged drain tube.
The HVAC box has a tube that drains the water onto the ground.
The tube should be at the bottom of the firewall near the passenger floor.

How to stop water from pass side floor


Hot or cold water? You need to determine whether it is the A/C drain or leaking heater core. we will start here with A/C. There will be a drain hose going through the firewall into the engine bay. Push a piece of wire up the drain tube then blow softly with compressed air or get fish tank tube put it in drain tube & blow. If you free blockage water will pour out of that drain tube. If the tube is blocked the water will go in the car But a leaking heater will do the same.

JENN AIRE LEAKING WATER ON FLOOR. NOT SUPPLY LINE PROBLEM. HELP


Open freezer, remove lower crisper & look for solid ice on freezer floor & area at rear of freezer. If present, defrost drain is restricted. Depending on make & model remove ice, remove rear wall and clear defrost drain trough and drain path. Verify by removing kick panel, pour a cup of near boiling water through drain and watch as it drains into pan. Once clear, pour one ounce of bleach into drain tube. Also check as water is draining into pan that the pan is not leaking due to pan cracks. This solution is based on the fact that you are stating no hoses are bad.

Water leaking all over


The water leaks all over the floor instead of running into the water containner. if that is right then your condenser drain pan tubing is blocked or the pan is rusted out that cause the water leaks all over instead of running down the tubing into the water containner . You've to dismantle the panels to get into this condenser drain pan to have a good clean out . Hope this will help . God Bless.

Smeg fride freezer leaking


HI Mark,
The evaporator drain is blocked causing the defrost water to pool, freeze and then leak onto your floor.
Clear out the freezer, then use a hammer to break up the ice on the floor. Now remove the rear panel. You'll see more ice build up. Don't use the hammer on it! (Too close to the coils for comfort) Use a hair dryer to warm up/melt the ice below the coils.
You'll see the drain hole now. Clear the drain by forcing a solution of water and bleach or water and baking soda into it with a basting syringe. If the solution will not flow through, slide a length of ¼ inch flexible tubing into the drain tube to push the clog through to the drain pan. Remove the tubing after clearing the clog.
