The tray underneath your fridge is probably clogged, and overflowing. There is an evap tray underneath, and if it does not get adequate airflow, it will overflow, and leak out.

Clean the bottom front vents, and underneath the fridge to ensure adequate airflow.

Open the vents in the crispers to allow the air from them to circulate through the fridge. It will help to keep the condensation down.

Water collecting inside fridge, under meat drawer


Yes most responses are the freezer drain even if it is in the bottom freezer. If the drain is blocked water will build up anywhere inside your refrigerator only because it has no place to go during the defrost. Defective door seals can also can make the problem much worse.

Water is dripping out the bottom when you open the frezer door and when you go to get water


first thing to check would be the bottom and back of the inside of the freezer and see if you have any ice build up if you did this would be a defrost issue you can read more about this if you do have ice by clicking this link http://applianceoutletservice.com/appliance-care-tips/refrigerator-tips/refrigerator-defrost-system-information.htm another thing you can check is the door seals if you have a rip tear or pinch in the door seals this causes condensation to build up or if you also have water that is on the door there is a line that goes through the bottom of the hinge that brings water to the water dispensor you basicly need to find out where the water comes from remove the rear panel inside the freezer if you dont see ice just to double check there is a small drain hole under the condensor that sometimes also freezes up with ice in some units so look further into where the water is coming from and message me back if you have any further questions and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to help others in similar situations in the future Thanks Rick

Hello, I have a GE Prolife side by side refrigerator PSF26PGSA BB and I notice that the refrigerator side has ice build up on the back wall of it in the inside. Can you please help, could it be the...


Where exactly on the back wall of the fresh food compartment(refrigerator) is this ice build up? If its building up in the air vents, that usually indicates a warm air leak, and this additional warm air is creating condensation, read ice, where it meets the colder air. There is no defrost heater or sensor in the refrigerator, all the cooling components that need to be inside the cabinet are located in the freezer. To check for warm air leaks, check to see that your light switch turns the light(s) off, check that the door actuates the switch when its closed, you will have to close door and squeeze part of the gasket to see if the light stays on. Furthermore, check the door gasket itself, make sure there are no gaps, rips or other malformations. Check that the bottom part of the gasket is not sagging, or the hinge side corners are not bunched up, or stretched out from the corners. Also, let the door close by itself like normal, and check the lower portion of the non hinge side of the gasket, if there is a gap here, further check for scratches on the bottom inside liner, not the door, inside the bottom of the fresh food compartment. If there are scratches here, this indicates the door is rubbing on the bottom because its too low, indicating a problem in the lower door hinge area. You dont mention any refrigerator freezer temperature problems, so it does not sound like a defrost problem or an issue with an evaporator fan motor failure.

Ice forming on bottom of freezer floor. Has to be broken up and removed daily. Seems to happen every night.


Most times when that happens it is because the condensate drain is blocked from draining into a pan below the refrigerator where warm air blows across the water and the water is returned to air inside your home. The things need to do is unplug the refrigerator and remove contents of the freezer and then the back panel inside freezer. At the very bottom of the evaporator is a pan that collects the condensate during defrost. It has a drain hole in center. Sometimes the refrigerator is leaning a little and after defrost the ice remains on one side of pan and slowly creeps up to cover the hole completely, while other times the drain line slowly gets gunk build up in it causing water to freeze because of the blockage. I will return with a link to Sea Breeze Tips page where there is a collection of other peoples views to approach this. Sea Breeze

Water dripping from underneath


The water is most likely coming from the condensation that's drained out of the refrigerator during the automatic defrost cycle.

Be sure the bottom fan is running and clean out the condensation tray. Warm air pulled across the condenser coils is supposed to evaporate the condensate water. If the fan is not running when the refrigerator cycles on, replace it. This would also result in the refrigerator running excessively without cycling off.

While you're working under the unit, be sure to clean off the coils too.

Good luck. Hope this was helpful.

Water is leaking from the bottom in the front left side of side by side maytag. water line is ok not leaking. can't see where it is coming from.


the water for the dispenser (ice/water dispenser in the freezer door) comes from under the frige then up thru the bottom hinge of the freezer door .. it then goes inside the door up to the dispenser .. its a plastic hose and it has to twist near the hinge each time the door is opened .. thats where it usually breaks or develops a pin hole leak .. you can replace the whole hose or just the damaged section if that easier ... since the bottom freezer.hinge where that hose comes up thru, is at the position of your leak then i suspect thats your trouble ... ..also check the condensate pan to make sure its not full .. thats a flat pan under the fridge ..you can usually get acess to it by removing the front kick panel at the bottom of the frige .. if thats full then look for a door seal leak (damaged rubber seal) ... a broken seal or open door will allow moisture to condense inside the machine ..that runs down into the condensate pan where it normally evaporates .. but a problem (like open door) will fill it up to overflow in time ....

Leaking freezer


Self-defrosting refrigerators usually dispose of the water generated during the defrost cycle via a tube or channel that directs the water to a pan at the bottom of the refrigerator. From the pan, the water normally evaporates. If the tube or channel is clogged or obstructed, the water backs up and leaks into the inside of the refrigerator compartment. Then the water builds up at the bottom, inside of the refrigerator. When the water has built up for a time it may spill out of the front of the door opening. To fix this problem, clear the drain tube or channel and allow the defrost water to flow down to the drain pan. In some refrigerators, the defrost water is intentionally directed down the back wall of the refrigerator, where it then flows to the bottom of the refrigerator compartment and out to a small drain--usually located beneath one of the drawers at the bottom of the refrigerator. If the drain becomes clogged or blocked, the water may back up. To fix this problem, clear the obstruction. Another cause may be the following. The refrigerator may have doorframe heaters to evaporate any condensation on the cabinet frame. If your refrigerator is equipped with a switch inside that says ?energy saver? or something similar, while running in that mode the door heaters are disabled. Turn the switch to the opposite setting and wait 24 hours. If the condensation disappears the problem is solved. please do not forget to rate the solution.thanks.

Refrigerator door warped? condensation inside


pull the door seal back and look behind it. if you see 1/4 inch screws every 6-8 inches then you can re-straighten the door.
  • take the door off of the refrigerator and remove the handles
  • lay it down on a flat surface, like a large table or hard floor (not carpet)
  • loosen (dont take out) all of those screws behind the door seal. this should relax the metal part of the door so you can twist it and make it flat against the floor. 
  • once it is completely flat on the floor on all corners then tighten all the screws, starting with the center of each side and work towards the corners.
  • when you reinstall the door make sure you line up the door correctly before tightening the hinge bolts.

Check and make sure you defrost drain in the freezer isn't frozen. The water may be coming from the bottom of the freezer inside. When the heater comes on to defrost the evaporator, the water drips in to a small hole in the back bottom of the freezer inside. If the drain freezes, the water runs out into the freezer on the bottom and eventually onto the floor in front of the freezer door. It will eventually create a gap and let moisture into the freezer and may show up in the refrigerator section as condensation. Remove the ice build up including the alluminum drain pan area where the drain is located. Pour hot water into the drain to defrost it. You may have to remove the back of the freezer wall on the bottom to get better access. If the water goes down the drain, its clear. If you need a part for your refrigerator, please email me on ebay under user name themackshack. Good luck! , Mack
