SOURCE: Fridge ice accumulation inside and water dripping outside

Hi, Are you getting ice build up in the freezer side as well? There is a air shuttle between the fresh food side and the freezer side. thwater might be getting in the freshfood side from there. Look at the bottom rear panel in the freezer for ice build up. Ig=f there is ice, you will need to get to the drain from inside the freezer and check for blockage.
Please let me know if I can help you further.

SOURCE: frost forms in freezer, blocking vents so temp in both freezer and fridge is warmer than normal

You have an issue with the defrost system, either the timer, thermostat or heating element. Probably the defrost timer refer to the manual to find it. If you don't have the manual check the makers web site for a parts breakdown. You should be able to put it into defrost manually by turning the knob and see if that helps. You may need to do this sevral times as it only stays in defrost for a little over twnety minutes and run cycle for 6,8 or ten hours. If the ice build up is heavy then twenty minutes may not do the trick thus the need for repated defrost cycles. If it does the trick replace the timer. If not check the thermostat and heater element.

My french door freezer side water is dripping collect in the bottom of the freezer. its frozen solid and then melts and drips out the front of freezer onto the floor making a puddle of water


Your drainage hole is blocked.. empty the bottom half of the fridge and freezer .. you will see a V shaped moulding in the back panel INSIDE each compartment.. smack bag in the middle is a hole that allows the condensate to run away, but sometimes a pea or other obstruction clogs it, so the water cannot run away, but is held back.. where it refreezes, blocking the tube further, and causing the next cycle to run the water into the bottom of the appliance, where it refreezes.. but later thaws and floods.... I suggest you pull out the appliance so you can check the drainage tube(s) by eye.. use a chopstick, and if you can find a cheap shop selling 'bottle brushes' about the width of your little finger, push that up and down it a few times to properly clean it..

Should fan run constant on indesit ban12fn fridge freezer?


It should shut off when it reaches the correct temperature. If you have the temp set to low it could cause it to continue to run or if there is an issue with the fridge that could also cause this issue. Keep in mind after a defrost it will take some time for everything to get back to the correct temp so it may run constant for a long time.

Water leaking inside fridge.


If you remove the back panel of your freezer you will notice what looks like a drain - melted water will go through a drain hole that extends to your refrigerator inside a cup that slowly drains the water through a tube through the back of your refrigerator and down the drip pan. Your cup may appear fine, but maybe there is some obstruction somewhere causing the water not to drain fast enough - so what happens is that the cup will eventually overflow - try to see if you can remove this and pass a long wire down the drain tube at the back to dislodge anything blocking or partially blocking it - see if you can also clean your drain cup, eventually small derbris accumulate. At the back of your freezer panel look for any partial or complete obstruction of the drain hole and its surroundings, which might be iced up.

I myself have had this problem for months, my refrigerator would have water at the bottom accumulate and eventually under the crispers a river of water :)

Cleaning the cup and the drain tube at the back of the fridge and the drain and surroundings at the back of the freezer panel should fix this problem. Sounds like your drain at the freezer level is plugged up and water is backing up and leaking from elsewhere !

Leaking Whirlpool refrigerator


My Whirlpool fridge had water droplets falling onto all three shelves and pooling unter the crisper drawers. I solved the problem by clearing the ice-clogged drain in the freezer.

In Whirlpool model ET21UM, the condensation drain hole is located directly behind the freezer. To access the drain hole, remove all your frozen items and place them in a large picnic cooler. Notice that the floor of the freezer is basically a large plastic tray fastened by two small bolts. Unscrew the bolts with a wrench or ratchet and remove the plastic tray. At this point you will probably see that water has seeped under the tray and created a mini ice rink on the bottom of your freezer. You can tap the ice lightly with the handle of a screwdriver to break it up. Once it's broken, toss the ice into your sink, or put it in a plastic bag and store into your cooler to keep everything cold.

Once the ice has been removed from the freezer floor, you should be able to see a metal drip trough in the back under a false wall hiding the condenser coils. It's a little tougher to remove the ice from the drip trough with the screwdriver method, so you might want to use a hair dryer. After a few minutes with the hair dryer, you should be able to remove most of the ice by hand. You can remove any water with a sponge or turkey baster. The only ice left will be a plug of ice in the drain hole in the middle of the drip trough. Heat up a cup of water in the microwave and carefully pour it into the drip trough. If the drip trough is hard to access, you might need to use a funnel. The hot water should melt most of the ice in the drain hole. If it pools in the drip trough and doesn't drain, use a sponge or turkey baster to remove the water and add hot water again. A small length of wire or a pipe cleaner might help clear any other obstruction in the drain hole. When the drain is clear you should hear water flowing through it. Dry off the floor of the freezer and return the plastic floor tray to it's spot and fasten with the two bolts. Remove any water that has pooled in your refigerator and you're done.

Drain hole in top fridge section flooding and icing up under vegtable storage draws.


maybe you fridge is tilting to far forward some times a fridge needs to lean back slightly only by 5 degs so adjust the foot t the front. this will mke the water flow towards the back and also help keep the doors sealed better
