My Refrig is collecting water in the bottom. My freezer is on top and the refrig is on the bottom. Water collects in or under the produce trays. What could be wrong


Without a model number or even a brand, this advise can only be general. You have a blocked defrost drain. Each time the refrigerator does an automatic defrost, the resulting melted frost needs to go down to a drain pain near the compressor, where it will evaporate. If the path to the drain pan is blocked, the water has to go somewhere, in your case, down the inside of the liner of the refrig and to the lowest level, under the produce trays. There may be a tube down the outside of the refrig on back which can be removed for cleaning, or the blockage may only be accessable from the area right by the cooling coils inside the freezer section. (usually located behind the back wall, but sometimes under the freezer section floor) You may find that flushing the drain tube using a turkey baster with warm water will be all that it takes to solve your problem.

Water on floor of refrigator. Our refrigator is a Frigidaire Crown series model no. F44Q18CC. We have never had the ice maker hooked up sence we owned our refrigator.We bought it about 5 years ago. Lately...


Water collects INSIDE the refrigerator ? It is coming from the freezer. You have a plugged up defrost drain - look for a drain cup inside your refrigerator section agains the wall, this leads to a plastic tube that connects through the back wall of your refrigerator down a drain tube - see if you can remove this and with an object pass it through the drain tube to dislodge anything obstructing the water passage - if you do not have a drain cup in refrigerator then look in your freezer behind the panel you should see a drain hole below the evap fan, where the ice melts and drains through the tube - if this area is iced up or blocked water will overflow to your refrigerator through the cooling vents :)

Water laeks into the refrigerator part of refrig from the freezer above. pan at bottom of refrig is dry. I think drain is blocked. how do i solve this for a whirpool model et18nkxjw00


you are probably right. the drain is located behind the back wall of the freezer section, under the evaporator coil. simplest fix is to remove the rear panel and unplug the fridge,prop the doors open and let it melt on its own, a hair dryer or hot water may speed up the process.

Water and ice slowly disapeared


When your refrig. is operating , The cool air is dehydrating the surrounding area inside. You will find if you leave a ice tray with water in the freezer for a month. There will be nothing left. This moisture ends up in drip tray on bottom refrigerator . Which evaporates into air outside the refrig..

LG GR727RB Top Freezer ok but bottom fridge is not cool


Hi softwaredude with an LG GR-727R refrig. The occasional build up of water on the bottom of the fresh foods sections tells me that the refrig is going through it's defrost cycle, but that the defrost drain is plugged. If you take the back off the refrig. you will see a plastic tube about 1/2 inch diameter with a few ribs on it going from the top of the compressor compartment to the bottom, which is a defrost water holding / evaporating pan. Look to see if that tube is plugged. If not, it is plugged further up, most likely where the defrost water drains off the evaporator (that the coils behind the freezer wall that do all the cooling). Take that back panel off and use a hair dryer to melt all the frost off. The frost is blocking air flow from the freezer section to the fresh foods section, thus poor or no cooling in the FF section. You should be able to spot where the defrost water is suppose to drain. If the water is not draining out, use a turkey baster with hot water to flush out the drain.

Water Pooling and freezing on floor of freezer


most likely you have a frozen drain in the freezer section so that whne your refrig defrosts the water runs out into the freezer compartment instead of the drain pan underneath. the fix is to flush the drain with warm water to clear the obstruction. the drain can be reached either by removing the cover in the freezer area or by back flushing the line from beneath the refrig.
