SOURCE: 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

Now I think I have other things wrong with mine,after leakage problem the refrigeration compartment wont cool anymore but the freezer part remains working as usual.Ive nailed this down to one of the following not working... Thermostat / timer / defrost heater.So one or more of these needs replacing.Im just trying to look for a manual which shows the nuts and bolts or the refrigerator (not the "How to use" type manual which I have).

SOURCE: drain trough at rear of fridge freezer constantly

The evaporator fan may be drawing the water back up the drain hole when it comes off defrost. The drain might be trapping itself or the drain trough might not be allowing the water to travel to the drain hole. Another cause could be condensation and not the drain at all. Door seals may not be working properly.

SOURCE: How do i unblock the drain hole of my Miele kfn12823sd fridge freezer

Water is supposed to drain down a small drain line to a pan down near the compressor where warm air from the condenser fan will blow warm air over the water and evaporate the water again an put it back into the air inside your home, office or wherever your refrigerator is located. Over time that little drain tube gets slime, algae and a gooey white paste gunk that fills the drain line sides up like If blocked by gunk or ice you will see trails of liquid leaking down the rear wall of fresh food compartment until it reaches the crisper drawers. Gunk is an accumulation of algae slime and just crud that appears from nowhere in a refrigerators defrost condensate drain lines. This is not always the same with every model as you may see frozen ice flowing down the rear wall of freezers on side by sides. Here is an example Click here=> Whirlpool Leak Photo taken by TechnicianBrian. TechnicianBrian.com. And in this photo are several parts listed in photo group #1 were it is most likely running down the wall=> MagicChef CTB1921AR fresh food section. If you still have questions please ask and rate me if I was able to explain this well enough. Every refrigerator is made different so these are examples only. The key is to find if ice or just gunk has blocked you defrost drain. Unplug and then remove the rear panel in back of freezer. We need to see if the water is overflowing the condensate drain tray or if the blockage is in the turn the drain leads down back of your refrigerator. Much more on this page=> Leaking Refrigerators! If you run into any problems along the way of repair please let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

How do fix water inside refrigerator under bottom drawers


It may be your drain hole at the back of the fridge has become blocked.

There will be a channel at the back (or side) of the fridge that collects condensation with a drain hole out of the back of the fridge. The drain hole becomes blocked with mould / gunge causing the excess water to overflow and puddle in the bottom of the fridge.
The hole may be gently cleared with a small diameter rod or stick.

Water is collecting on the top shelf & in the bottom of the refrigerator. Water is clear. Water at bottom will partially freeze. Cleaned the coils & made sure all vents were unblocked. Problem...


if you have water leaking down from the freezer into the fridge you have a blocked drain in the freezer,if you pulled off the back inside wall of the freezer and melted the ice off of the coil you should have noticed that the water wasn't draining down the drain hole under the coil.pull off the back inside wall of the freezer,look under the coil and you'll see a drain hole,when the freezer defrosts the ice melts and goes into the drain hole and down into the pan at the bottom of the fridge where the compressor is and it evaporates,your drain is blocked and the water is draining into the fridge section.unplug it,melt out any ice with a hair dryer,now you have to clear the drain line,i use a steemer to do this,it blows steem down into the drain and cleans it out in no time but if you don't have a steemer you need something that will push air down into the hole like a turkey baster or even a shop vac,pull off the hose and stick it into the other hole and then you can blow through the drain line with it,when you think the line is clear pour hot water into the hole,if it drains through your done,if not keep hitting it,also if you open the fridge door and with the hair dryer heat up the middle ceiling in the back,that's also part of the drain,in the middle of the ceiling and back wall where they meet,heat it up for around 5 minutes and then try the water,it will clear out,it could take around an hour or so to do it.

Water leak in fridge.


The most common cause is ice built up and plugged thedrain hole as non Auto defrost in time. Unplug the power de-ice. Locate the drain hole. Insert soft wire or cordto clear drain Open back of fridge. Locate drain tube and pan. And checkinserted wire or cord is coming out. Gently shake wires and pull out. That'sall. Now Drain tube is cleared. Once you defrost manually itself your problem would have solved automatically. Thanks, helpful?

My fridge is leaking water inside of the main fridge compartment. It is coming from the top and I can see water dripping out of one the hole. There are two small one inch square holes near the back top...


The defrost drain hole is frozen over.
When your fridge goes into defrost mode the water has no where to go but inside the fridge,not down the drain hole.
Turn the fridge off for 24 hours and open the doors. Let it defrost naturally to clear it out.

Water leaking on to floor of fridge


Remove the food from the freezer and icemaker (3 screws and a plug hold it in place ) . Remove the screws holding the back panel of the freezer in place , and remove the panel . Using a hair dryer , below the coils , start in the middle , and defrost until you see the drain hole . Keep defrosting the hole , until water starts to drain thru . Use a small piece of hose inserted into the drain , and blow thru it , to clear out any debris accumulated in the drain line . Hot water helps to clear the ice from inside the hole also . To make this a permanent " fix " , get a piece of aluminum solid wire ( 14-16 guage , like an appliance ground wire ) about 8 " long . After the drain is clear , where water runs thru , insert 1 end into the hole as far as it will go without any force , bending slightly if necessary . Wrap the other end around the black tube ( defrost heater )above the hole about 1 - 1 1/2 turns . Whenever the fridge goes into defrost , the heat will transfer to the wire , therfore , keeping ice from blocking the drain again . This should fixya .

Ice collecting under bottom of Freezer drawer/ seal round door intact/ food staying frozen/ Ice is cleared periodically but then builds up again


Your defrost drain hole is clogged. Look for the drain hole in the bottom rear of the freezer section. Turn off the fridge. Heat the drain hole with a hair dryer and clear the ice. Pour a quarter cup of bleach into the hole.

The hole that drains water away at back of fridge is blocked


Ok you need to defrost this unit eg unplug and leave all doors open for 48 hours then get some "flexy curtain wire (white plastic coated, used for hanging net curtains) this wire is perfect for getting up or down the fridge drain.

Please rate my advice

Refrigerator side stops cooling


Drain stopped up.
Take out the bottom drawer in the freezer, look at the back wall and you should get a partial view of the bottom of the cooling coils. Directly below these coils is the drain area. You may need a light to see the drain hole. If this area is covered with ice then a hair dryer will help clear this so you can see the drain hole.
I have some O2 tubing that I put down the drain to clear any cloggs. Also, I seal the top of the drain hole around the O2 tubing with tape and use the air from my lungs to clear the drain tube. Pour a little water down this drain hole to make sure it’s clear.
