What would cause a refrigerator to collect water under the fruit and vegetable drawers?


hi there, refrigerators have condensation that forms and generally goes down a little hole that is usually under the fruit and vegetable drawers. This water should go down this whole into a condensation pan that is under the refrigerator and then evaporates. Sometimes food gets in the hole under the drawers and keeps the water from being able to travel where it needs to. Try to run a pipe cleaner of something through the hole to clean it out and maybe a very small amount of HOT water. If there is no hole there, it is unusual and it is possibly something else. This is usually the problem I have. Hope this helps!

We have water laying on the bottom shelf every day


Under the evaporator coils is a drain. It catches the defrost water and directs it to a pan above the compressor where it evaporates. The drain clogs and water cascades down the back wall ending up under the crispers. Get a shop vac and open the drain.

Model 363.9668513 water collects under the fruit


this is because the plastic is shiny and attracts condensation,only "cure "is a piece of kitchen towel under drawer to mop up as/when.(when you open door all the cold air drops to the floor and is replaced with warm moist air from the kitchen.hence condensation.

Water build up under crisper bins in bottom of fridge. New seal has been applied, but still no luck. Kelvinator 400 top freezer


What happens is the drain will get stopped up and the defrost water will cascade down the back wall and puddle up under the drawers. You must access the evaporator area and open that drain.

Ref. Whirlpool model ED25DQ/ water in meat drawer


You seem to have conflicting information here.
If you turn the therostat DOWN it is setting it to defrost that will not help the food in the door to get cold it gets it warmer. The water is possibly from the fridge being in defrost mode and the tube that usually direcfts it to a tray beneath the fridge to waste tray that evaporates the water from the heater coil has somehow been directed back into the crisper draw.

tfry turning the fridge to colder not warmer. Hope i interpreted this correctly, language is a wonderful tool when facial expression and visuals are available otherwise its a handicap

Why is water forming under the veggie drawers


One of two things caused this problem, either the drain in the freezer is clogged and spilling over to the air duct and through to the refrigerator, down the back wall and then puddling up under the drawers or the Styrofoam between the freezer and refrigerator is saturated with water. If you remove the inner back wall of the freezer and there is ice built up, defrost it with hot water and a turkey baster, push some heavy weed trimmer line down the drain tube and they should clear the clog. If there is no ice build up, then you probably have the latter of the two problems, the only solution is to empty the unit, turn it off, and let it dry out for a few days with the doors opened. If the problem continues, then there is a significant breakdown of the Styrofoam between the two cavities and there isn't a solution, it is time to purchase a new unit.

Water accumulates under the vegtable and fruit bin


You may have a pluged drain tube and prevents the water from draining into the drip pan below the fridge.you will have to remove the tube from rear of fridge and clean.If you cannot get into the tube you will need to remove the rear panel inside the freezer compartment.and then pour hot water down from there till it breakes free.If your freezer is iced up you wil need 1of3 things first defrost timer second defrost thermostat third defrost element.Hope i helped:)

Water build up in the bottom of the refridgerator under the fruit and vegtable cripser draws. maytag model #MTB1954ARW


Water build up under the fresh food drawers is usually associated with an air intrusion from the exterior. Warm air intruding into the fresh food compartment creates excess condensation, which eventually accumulates on the bottom.
Some causes are:
1. Internal obstruction, not allowing door(s) to close tightly enough.
2. Deteriorated door seal, (torn, pinched, deformed, misaligned,).
3. Light not turning off when door closed,(faulty door switch, misaligned door, loose hinges allowing door to drop).
Make sure all drawer have nothing obstructing their closure, and door shelves have nothing extending beyond the support bars.
Other less obvious causes may be creating this issue also and are not normally addressable by the novice servicer.

Hope this helps find the cause.

Whirlpool refrigerator top freezer


sounds like 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
