As long it is not coming out onto the floor then it isk working correct but if it overflows you are getting too much moist into the refrigerator you would need to find that air leak

Why does kenmore side by side model 596.50004100 leak water from bottom?


1. there is a condensation pan under refrigerators, pull front bottom grill off & you should see pan. if pan is full it will overflow, pull forward to remove & empty. also check to see if something spilled in bottom of fridge & is running into drain hole into pan. most of the time condensation is so slow that it will evaporate before the pan fills up, but I've had them fill up on me in the past, not too often though.

2. if fridge is equipped with ice maker & clod water dispenser, connections on bottom back side could be leaking ( not likely, unless they have been disturbed).

there is not much else that it could be unless it is not the fridge & is coming from some where else & running under the fridge.

Where is the drain hole? The refrigerator is defrosting and the condensation is under the bottom drawers instead of the pan beneath the frig. I can't find the place where the water should be draining...


The drain is in the FREEZER. Frost and ice melts off the evaporator coil during the defrost cycle and collects in a tray directly under the coil. The tray is pitched to the drain tube that runs inside the fridge wall to a pan under the fridge - where the water is evaporated by the heat created by the compressor and the fan that cools the condenser coil.

To see these parts, unplug the fridge. You'll need to remove the inside rear wall of the freezer. That means the freezer needs to emptied, ice maker removed, etc. Chances are that the drain is clogged - most likely with ice. Manually defrost with a hair dryer and use a turkey baster filled with hot water to direct a stream into the drain tube. Resist using tools to chip ice - the components are made with soft metal and if punctured will allow freon gas to escape. You can suffer instant frostbite to exposed skin or blindness if it gets into your eyes. Once water is flowing, consider hanging a piece of copper or aluminum wire from the defrost heater down into the drain tube. Make sure the wire hangs down as far as the ice build up did (2 or 3 inches at most). This will help conduct the heat into the drain tube and prevent it from icing over in the future.

I hope this was helpful. If it was, please rate it "4 thumbs up". Thanks!

Water is leaking under fridge. The pan keeps filling up and overflowing


On some models, when the water dispenser is clogged the water will bypass to the drain pan. The water from the defrosted freezer also drips to the pan but it shouldn't fill it under normal conditions. Try to see where the water is coming from.

Kenmore Fridge: 44103 side by side: I keep finding a


Hello, this sounds like you have a blockage in the drain tube, remove panel back/bottom of freezer..you may see ice build up...melt ice with hair dryer/heat gun...you will see a pan below evaporator...melt ice in pan...dry water up in pan with paper towel...now you should see a hole in pan that leads to drain tube...pour some hot water in pan..wait a couple minutes..mop up water and repeat this step 2-3 times....once you have done this find some flexible curatain wire or electrical wire..poke down the hole until you see the water drain..now it is clear..put back panel back and you are good to go. The reason you see water in the fridge is because the water has been leaking into the freezer and down the vent into the fridge instead of running into the drain hole...Please feel free to comment again if you need any further assistance.

Collecting water at bottom of frig inside under drawers.


begin by removing the grill on the front at floor level. look under there and you will see the evaporation pan. next pull the fridge out from the wall so you can get behind it. there you will see the tube. to unclog it you will have to disconnect it at the top and force hot water into it using a turkey baster.

Overflowing drip pan under the fridge


for reallybsq
problem could be door seals not sealing completely and hence excessive ice formed on evaporator and excess water when it melts. however, i have found this problem many times with large larder fridges and really found no cure.

for guest.
towards the bottom of the back wall, there is a gulley with a drain hole in the middle. this drain is blocked. clear it with something flexible and make sure water flows away freely

WHERE IS THE WATER COMING FROM UNDER MY FRIDGE?


very odd that there would be an influx of water to that pan, especcially enough to overflow it. a bit of a pain in the butt to remove that pan, try soaking some water out if it. and see if you can see where water coming from, id be willing to bet that the water filter housing right next to it is leaking and happens to be filling your drip pan, did you replace water filter recently?? perhaps its not seated properly.(regardless removing the water filter should stop the leak)
