Question about KitchenAid Refrigerators

The freezer drips water into the fridge below by a constant drip. I have taken it apart and defrosted the ice under the base of the freezer every month with the drip hole in the back with a hair dryer until in runs through to base below the refrigerator for the last 5 months. We disconnected the ice maker but it is dripping again, meaning the ice sheet is back in the freezer again. What is making it freeze up?

You must have a defective defrost timer.

SOURCE: kitchenaid ice maker dripping and freezing down freezer shelfs

Tube sometimes freezes because of minerals in it hold one droplet at a time until buildup freezes solid. Replace tube first. Water valve allowing some droplets through can also cause this. Tube first-less expensive.

Freezer not getting cold and dripping water


I own a similar Kitchen Aid fridge that had a defrost icing issue: Kitchen Aid KSRP25FNBL00
> Ice had plugged the drain hole at bottom of chill coil section inside the freezer compartment.
> I learned that the coil, circulation fan was not working, but condenser was working.
> I paid a tech to replace the circ fan, about $200, including a new swiss-made fan. He said it was unusual for these fans to fail, but not unheard of.
Expensive, but saved the purchase of a new fridge. Has worked great for 6 months since then.
HOpe that helps.

During the defrost cycle our refrigerator leaks water from the freezer side out the front into the floor of the kitchen. Where could it be coming out and what will fix it?


The water from the melting ice during defrost should be guthered from the drip drain pan which is under the evaporator pipe coil and is passing though the drain tube which is conected to the dip pan and should end out on the back of the fridge to the compressor to evaporate. The problem posibly is that the drain tube is goggle either from ice or from dirt or both and the water since it can not end to compressor it overfrow from drip pan inside the freezer. So you can clean the drip pan and drain tube using a wire rod and problem will be solved.

Water dripping from freezer onto top shelf of fridge with ice buildup back of freezer


the defroster isn't close enough to the drain to be effective. remove the back wall of the inside of the freezer, remove the excess ice. clear out the ice from the drain using hot water and a turkey baster. there is a kit from whirlpool that uses a piece of metal and a screw around the defrost rod, but I found out that a piece of 14 gauge solid core wire with the insulation stripped off works great too. stick the stripped wire into the drain, 2 to 3 inches, and wrap the rest around the defrost rod.

Water is not draining into pan. it is going inside fridge under


sounds like a drain clog in the freezer compartment above. remove the freezer rear panel and totally defrost the evaporator area, directly under the evap you see( under all taht ice) a small drain hole that has become frozen over, try defrosting with either a hair dryer( not a heat gun too much heat youl melt everything) or by pouring hot water donw the drain until you get a free flow of water down the tube. after its clear reassemble and you should be fine

DRIPPING SOUND MAYBE POPPING ALMOST


This is normal operation, every 8 to 10 hours the heater in your freezer section turns on to defrost ice and frost from evaporator coil, this melting water hitting the heater is what is making popping and hissing noises.

Water dripping from top of fridge then freezing under crisper's


If the freezer is on top then empty out the freezer and remove the bottom and back liner of the freezer compartment usually phillips screws. In the back you will see the freezer coils along with a defrost element. Below these two items u will see a drip tray that collects water from the coils on defrost cycle, in the center of the pan will be a drain hole that connects to a hose that leads to a pan under the refrigerator.Normally the water is collected there and evaporated. The hole in the tray in the freezer is clogged. Thaw it and clean it until you can pour water in it and it goes to the pan down below. please rate me

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

Ice build up


defrost the freezer,a hairblower helps,the drain tube is blocked in the freezer,you have to let it fully defrost then restart,this is a common problem for all fridges,turn back on after done make sure you feel the air blowing into the fridge,if it does it again its more than likely the defrost timer
