Hi, All you have to do is UNPLUG the freezer and leave it of for a day or use a hair dryer to defrost it quicker.
You will get water so use a few towels to catch it.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

My frost free freezer has had a small puddle of water under the front right corner several times now. I unplugged it and let it defrost completely thinking that would stop the problem but it hasn't. Can...


There is a chance the water is coming from the drip tray and or the drain hose to the tray.
when the unit goes into a defrost cycle it is leaking from one of those places check and make sure the hose is in the drip pan correctly and that the pan is also mounted properly and level.

If there is is a lot of water in the pan you may need to check the door seals on you unit and make sure they are sealing properly.

If there is an air leak then the unit could have excessive ice build up and also be defrosting more than usual amounts of water.

Our upright frigidaire freezer leaks water......not all the time...just every now and then


turn off power to frig or unplug and let it defrost, if water drips inside and no water drips in the pan on top of the compressor after defrost then the drain line that goes to the pan is clogged. also sometimes the pan itself develops a leak, but that will be self evident. If this resolves problem for a period of time and problem returns then probably defrost timer

Ge feezer model fuf14dtarwh upright. i am getting water on the bottom of the freezer which is frozen. what is causing the problem? of course the warranty is over by 9 months and the ge people won't help.


Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.

I do not have a manual so I don't know how to defrost it


Look for a white plastic plug in the floor of the freezer, about the size of a quarter. Remove that. Take the front grill off and feel underneath for a plastic hose (one end connects to the drain hole, the other end you can catch defrost water in using a shallow pan). Use a hair dryer to melt the frost (with the freezer unpluged)

all frost free freezers have to defrost the coils. there is a drain pan or cup in the bottom .. if it overflows or it can't drain out you will get puddles check the drain hose and drain cup or pan.. also check to see if you have ice inside the bottom of you freezer that would be a plugged or freezing drain hose..call for services if only 4 months old...
