Fridgidaire Defrost Water Pan

I have less than year old fridge that is leaking, not a drop or two, but towels full of water when cleaned up??? The water pan in the back has come loose *(which looks like it was liquid nailed on there to begin with) and does not drain itself so the water pours out of it. Help

Hi,

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. .

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.You can use a hair dryer and remove the ice buildup

Water leaking under fridge


a contant runing of water is most likely a leak in the ice maker supply hose , an intermitant drip of water is a drip pan thats full in bottom of fridge (closest to floor ) this water comes from the auto defrost cycle most times this water evaporates away , but as fridge gets older it makes more frost that needs melted hence more water ,sometimes it over comes the pan and runs to floor , a good flashlight and getting down to look underneath usually tells you source of leak

check and see if the door to the ice chute is closing all the way, moisture can get in there and cause excessive frost build up also check the location of your defrost thermostat behind the back panel in the freezer, it should be attached to the top of the evap coil. also check your water system and be sure that there are no leaks under the refer dripping into the pan while the unit is cycling for ice fill or dispenser line.

The pan will continue to have water in it. The defrost system water drips in the pan where it is evaporated by the condenser fan blowing on it.
Does this pan overflow? Is the water on the floor coming from this pan? Or could it be coming from the water inlet valve where the water supply comes in? Does the water come out the freezer or fridge door at the bottom?

Whirlpook ET21NK--Water collecting in crispers


Self-defrosting refrigerators turn themselves off to defrost once in each 24-hour cycle. There is a 'drip pan' under the refrigerator that catches water from this automatic defrost cycle. The pan is not very deep, so if the unit is leaning very much, water will run over the top of the pan. For this and other reasons, you should try to keep the unit as level as possible.

Water running from under the refrigerator


experts say that there may come a time in a fridge's life where you have to open the back panel and clean the condensation coils. When they go in cooling mode, you get frost on the outside of the firdge (on the coils) because of the dirt. When the fridge goes off cooling the frost melts and of course, comes out under the fridge. Still is your fridgea normal one, or one that is connected to a water pipe?

Water leaking onto floor from refrigerator/freezer


The defrost drain is stopped up. Without taking anything apart, the easiest way to clear the drain is to blow compressed air through the drain tube which is at the back of the Fridge. You'll see it..... it drains water into the drip pan. Hope this helps !
