SOURCE: 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.

Why is water pooling in bottom of fridge under veggie drawer.? Also freezing ice cubes in back part of cube drawer


Just above the veg drawers at the back is a channel that collects water when the fridge defrosts. It has a hole to drain the water which is blocked and the water is pooling under the drawers. Clear the hole with a drinking straw.

Water filter on my side by side Samsung refrigerator is leaking. Leaving a small pool of water under the veggie drawer and then onto the floor outside the refrigerator


Well first thing shut the water off,drain water out by removing filter ,check the o-ring on filter and if you recently changed the filter you possibly pinched it when reinstalling and now you need a new. If not it could have a flat spot on it and wore out either way you need a new on.Appliance store (get model # or take with to match up) or even at times a hardware store that sells o-rings.

My Samsung RS253BAWW has been collecting water underneath the bottom drawer for some time now. It eventually winds up in the drip tray underneath and then runs out onto the floor. I've replaced the...


Depends if there is plastic tubing running inside fridge compartment. Shut off water to fridge. If that stops it you will have to look inside to see if there is visible plastic water tubing or if you can get to it from inside the fridge. Maybe the water line has a defect or got pinched and somehow split. Then turn on water, find leak and splice in a replacement section.

My refrigerator has a leak behind the drawers on the inside . I have since had to put a towel at the bottom of the drawers or it will start leaking down the front and onto the floor every couple of days....


Moisture condenses out of the cold air inside the fridge. Many refrigerators have a drain tube in the bottom to allow the condensate to run into a drip tray under the refrigerator (behind the trim panel on the bottom) where it evaporates. Over time this tube can get clogged by food particles and the water backs up, eventually running over the bottom edge onto the floor. You can use a straightened out coat hanger or other stiff wire to clear it out. This should get the water back into the tray where it belongs.

Water is pooling, on the inside, at the bottom of the refrigerator, under the veggie/fruit drawers. After about 5 days, it spills out onto the floor.


hi , i can help you with that.
open the freezer back wall after taking all things from your freezer out.
on the bottom center of the freezer back wall there is a drain hole,
defrost all the ice with hair dryer and wipe it with a towel.
this hole should be free all the way to the drain pan next the compressor.
clean it with hot water and a pump...
thats all :) let me know if you need any more help...

Model # TBX18TRBR large puddling leak on floor, think has to do with defroster messing up?? A GE refrigator serial # HG539639


I've got the same fridge with the same problem (believe it or not it was manufactured in 1992 so it's a wonder it's still working).

I also have been able to narrow the problem down to a defrost issue. It appears as the coils are defrosted, the leaking water drains down through the inside of the fridge, pools in the bottom of the fridge (under the bottom drawers), then when that area is full it runs out onto the floor.

I'm still troubleshooting and will post back here within a week with my results.

Water comes from under drawers on fridge side, leaks onto floor


If leak continued then you must have a faulty cut off valve. Check and tighten valve. Also, check the hose that runs underneath the fridge for cuts or holes.

Water pooling under my express thaw bin in bottom of refrigerator


no connection between lower drawer and water dispenser, however there is a water tank behind the crisper's storing water for the dispenser, its possible that there is a hole in the tank or a connection is leaking there and dripping water. remove all 3 crisper's and give a look at it. try getting water from dispenser while your checking (Might only leak when water dispenses
