Water in veg crisper freezing


You have a white cover in the back of your fridge it says twin cool on it. Behind that cover is a drain for your defrost cover that is probably frozen and water is leaking through that cover. Wrap a piece of copper wire around the heater and fish it down the drain and it

Defrost drain plugged in fresh food section. Samsung will repair it under warranty. Might pay for it if you complain nicely, if it is out of warranty.

U-line UC02175 water inside pooling under veg drawer, icemaker supply turned off, no water in catch pan inside back


Well sounds like your ice maker evaporator drain hole is frozen, every time the unit goes into defrost cycle, water backs up and leaks down to the drawer. You can try turn off the refer for 48hrs with the doors open, most case it will reset by it self. If it is happening again in few weeks, then you evaporator drain pan heater is not working. Also make sure the doors are shut all the time.

Why is water pooling under the crisper drawers? someone mentioned a humidity problem but there aren't any controls so what do I do? whirlpool ET18GMXHW0


Check the water reservoir behind the crispers for a leak. It could be a clogged defrost drain also. If you keep a jug of drinking water in the frig check closely for a pinhole. These are my first places to look.

Water is forming on the floor. Appears the water is pooling under the crisper drawer, then seeps through the seal. GE TBX 18CI. Any ideas?


You should not have any water at all forming inside the frig compartment unless you have a water dispenser on the frig. The water resevoir is located in the frig compartment at the bottom behind crisper. There may be a small leak or loose water connection on it. Hope this helps.

At the top of the frig where the cold air blows into a small "vent" is it suppose to still have styrofoam the inside of the small "vent"? PC Water is leaking into frig and into veg bends.


most likely the drain is clogged..if it is, the water flows to the path of least resistance, hence, into the air vents and down under the crisper..remove rear freezer panel. the drain pan is located under evaporator. Defrost the drain pan if there is ice in it. there will be a small drain hole. this is where you need to see it gets open via hot water and all will be ok..make sure you hear or see it flowing into drain pan...Bruce Denton, master tech

Kenmore 106.78202890 Ref. Icemaker seems to work fine. No water leaks when it fills but I have water in the refrigerator section that seems to be draining from the freezer. Any ideas?


Hi there, I believe you may have a defrost drain problem. See the water has to drain somewhere else when the drain is stopped up. So instead of into the catch basin on the bottom of the frig it cascades down the backside of the frig and ends up under the crispers. To fix the problem you must clear the defrost drain. It is located beneith the evaporator coils. When the frost on those coils melt it turns to water. Remove the freezer access panel, and clean out the drain. Use some hot water or a shop vac.
