SOURCE: Kenmore Model 78185891 type C21TFA95, water leakage problem

you have a clogged defrost drain tube. removing back panel of freezer will give you acess to drain trough, melt away the ice with a hair dryer, youll find a drain hole under there somwhere,pouring boiling water down the drain will clear it pretty quickly( i use a steam machine purchased from the infomercials works awesome, after you clear it and all water drain down tube wrap a piece of solid copper wirearound the heater( black calrod heater right above the drain trough) and stick it in the whole maybe an inch or so. now everythime the heater comes on to defrost it will prevent the hole from freezing over

SOURCE: WATER LEAK IN FREEZER POOLING AT BOTTOM & FREEZING THEN MELTING

The problem was indeed a clogged frost water drain. I had to pull the frig out from the wall (found an incredible amount of dust accummulation in the alcove), then remove the vertical metal and horizontal cardboard covers to expose the drain catchpan. The 1/2" rubber drain hose end was only about 1/8" above the pan pointing directly into it perpendicularly. This was not enough clearance. There was a plug (formed by dust and water) in the end of the hose that came out easily when I 'roto-rooted' it with a screwdriver. The water flowed easily after that, but I went ahead and trimmed about 3/8" off the end of the hose and pushed it back into its slot. Then I cleaned as much as I could. The prevention is to keep the area behind the frig cleaned!

SOURCE: WATER DRIPS DOWN FROM INSIDE TOP REFRIGERATOR BELOW FREEZER

Not an original solution - but a good one. Remove panels at the back of the freezer compartment to expose the heater unit or heater wire that defrosts the freezer coils and wrap a solid copper wire gently around the heater/ heater wire and place the loose end in the drain. This will conduct heat to the freezer drain and help keep it open. I did see a manufactured part in one of the appliance parts websites but it did not match my unit.

SOURCE: Water build up back of freezer inside

Our GE Profile leaked from the freezer door and this is what I was told by a service man to try before he came and it worked. There should be a "well" on the bottom of your freezer floor where the water runs when it defrosts. Yours is probably now covered with a sheet of ice. You can melt the ice with a hairdryer using dry towels to soak up the water as you work or really hot wet rags and ring them out in the sink. After all the ice is removed pour a small amount of warm water into the "well" and stick your finger in there and "plunge" it - like you would a clogged toilet - with your finger. This will purge the ice that blocked the drain. Check on this every couple of months to make sure you don't end up with the same problem in a year or so.

I have a Maytag Refrigerator mzd2752gr and it leaking water inside freezer compartment. Water then freezes and collects at the bottom of the freezer. When the ice starts to melt it drips out at the bottom...


First thing is to remove the ice from the freezer floor. After that rermove the lovxer basket and directly behind that you will see more ice below the freezer back wall. The problem you have is a cogged drain line. Remove the remaining ice there and located the drain hole, which is normally located in the center of the trough you see. On some models you may have to remove the back wall as well to get to it. After located the drain hole, thaw it out using hot water, a hair dryer, or carefully using a screw driver to tap into it to remove the ice blockage. Once you can freely pour water down the drain hole, you'll be good to go.

Water dripping from freezer into refrigerator area and frozen water in freezer


The defrost cycle is melting ice that will not go down the drain tube in the rear of the freezer. This can be a clogged tube due to debris, organic growths or ice blocking flow. What doesn't end up dripping into the fridge ends up freezing in the freezer compartment. Make sure the fridge is level or tilted back slightly.

Unplug the fridge from power. Remove the contents of the freezer and remove the ice maker, back wall plate and floor plate in the freezer section. Remove ice build up on the floor and tray in the freezer by thawing and soaking up water. Flush hot water (use a turkey baster to get at it) at the opening of the drain hose that is connected to the tray to thaw any ice.. once flowing to the evapraor tray under the fridge, mix up 1/2 oz of bleach and 4 oz of water and pour down the tube to kill any bacteria.

Reassemble and restock the freezer. Monitor the temperature of the fresh food (34 deg) and freezer (0 deg) compartments. If you notice the temperatures start to climb, there may be a problem with the defrost timer, terminator, etc. and may require a pro's help.

Good luck!

Kenmore elite - Water dripping from freezer to refrigerator


Your refrigerator has a defrost drain blockage behind the evaporator in your your freezer compartment. Some models like yours have leak in the turns as the water leaves the freezer. I recommend that you unplug and remove the cover to the evaporator and check the defrost condensate tray below the evaporator. A wet vacuum cleaner and poring a solution with clorox in the drain will help you clean locate the leak and where the blockage may be downline.. I do have the manual on yours and can help you solve this. Some times this is a factory defect and I can help you solve the freezing drain problem. Let me know, Sea Breeze

Water is leaking into the refrigerator.


most likely the defrost drain in the freezer is frozen shut. take out the back wall of the freezer and check under the evaporator. if its a whirlpool built kenmore you may find a sheet of ice on the floor of the freezer under the plastic floor/tray. if this is the case, remove ice, thaw drain with a turkey baster and hot water. wrap a piece of thicker copper wire (pencil lead size approx), around the defrost heater and push into drain about 2-3 inches, making sure it doesn't touch the sides of the drain, this will keep the drain from freezing shut. if its a frigidaire built remove the control from the inside of the ref and silicone around the opening where the water drains from the freezer into the drain cup that is built into the back of the control panel. that will keep the water from running along the ceiling of the ref and dripping. hope this helps. if not put model number with problem.

Water drains from freezer compartment into refridgerator


If the freezer is on top then empty out the freezer and remove the bottom and back liner of the freezer compartment usually phillips screws. In the back you will see the freezer coils along with a defrost element. Below these two items u will see a drip tray that collects water from the coils on defrost cycle, in the center of the pan will be a drain hole that connects to a hose that leads to a pan under the refrigerator.Normally the water is collected there and evaporated. The hole in the tray in the freezer is clogged. Thaw it and clean it until you can pour water in it and it goes to the pan down below. please rate me

Freezer compartment leaking water and icing up inside


Solution #3 fixed it.

Pulled everything out of the freezer, found where the drain was, it was blocked with ice, hot water and then a flexible straw, the kind that comes from an ammusment park kids container, shoved it down the opening after the hot water and it cleared whatever was blocking the drain.

Thank you very much - Mark
