Question about SUMMIT Professional FF1615SS Refrigerator
I have a Summit FF1615SS refrigerator. It is a refrigerator & freezer with the freezer on top. Recently when I open the fridge there is sometimes a significant amount of water leaking from a console looking thing on the ceiling of the refrigerator. The water mostly falls down the back of the inside of the fridge and collects at the bottom under the veggie bins.
From checking around people say this could be a 'clogged defrost-drain line.' Is that right and can I fix it?
Thanks in advance.

sounds like you do have a clogged drain tube, its self defrosting but the defrost water is pooling under hte crispers instead of in the drain pan under unit.so you ll either have to remove hte rear panel of freezer and locate the drain trough/ tube, and defrost it allowing for water to drain down, o rclear all the tube leading down to the drain pan.

1 There is a drain that carries away the water under the cooling coils. These coils are in the freezer section.
2 The damper going to the crisper( s) is open too far allowing cold air to cause condensate on the fridge wall or bottom.
3 The freezer section is not defrosting and there is a spot where the ice buildup is allowing conductive cooling into the refrigerator section and therefore is allowing condensation on the refrigerator wall or ceiling.
4 The refg section has a heater (possibly not positive) in the area of the door frame, or it may have a "power saver" switch. This switch and the heater (if it has a heater it may not have a switch) are designed to stop condensation on the refridg while running. I fit is placed in the "power save" mode it turns off the heater. But, if you live in extream humidity (Great lakes east side or Gulf coats Houstion...) the humid air will condensate water out and it will collect and settle on the floor.
5 Door gaskets are not sealing especially on the bottom of the door. This allows warmer air into the fridge section and it is condensation on floor under the crisper.
If you check all of these items and still cant find it please post back and tell me what you did find. So I can help you more. Please rate me as much as possible as Im trying to keep my average up and do the things that will actually educate and help people.
THANK you for using fixya and good luck..

I can solve your problem for you.
Self-defrosting refrigerators dispose of the water generated during the defrost cycle, usually via a tube or channel that directs the water to a pan at the bottom of the refrigerator. From the pan, the water normally evaporates. (See a more detailed explanation of this in the How Things Work section of our website).
If the tube or channel is clogged or obstructed, the water backs up and leaks into the inside of the refrigerator compartment. Then the water builds up at the bottom, inside of the refrigerator. When the water has built up for a time it may spill out of the front of the door opening. To fix this problem, clear the drain tube or channel and allow the defrost water to flow down to the drain pan.

SOURCE: Hello- I have an older 24
hmmm... I know the new ones have the freezer on the bottom, if that is the case with yours, I would check to make sure the gasket to the fridge is making a tight seal. A good quick fix is to smear a thin coating of Vaseline (the original kind) on the gasket... as they get older they sometimes get worn and don't make good contact, allowing moist air to get inside and condense. The Vaseline makes it stick a little better.
