SOURCE: Water is leaking under the refrigerator. This is

If everything else on the refrigerator seems fine (freezing and refrigerating are fine), then you probably have a problem with the drain hose under the evaporator coil. On frost free freezers, there is a heater that comes on periodically to melt off all the frost on the evaporator coil, and that defrosted frost (water) goes out a drain hose and collects in a pan at the back of the unit where it can evaporate.

Either the drain is clogged with ice inside the freezer, (in which case you might notice ice building up on the bottom of the freezer, or perhaps water collecting on the bottom of the refrigerator if your freezer is on top) OR there is something wrong with the pan at the back of the refrigerator, like a crack, or it somehow got tilted so that the water pours out. It is located behind the panel on the back.

Or perhaps, and this would really ****, the water line that supplies your ice maker is leaking, if you have one. If you do have one, I would recommend turning the water line to the fridge off before pulling the fridge out.

Water leaking from under the Maytag refrigerator. When I get around to looking for the problem it is dry. How can I repair this problem if I don't know where it is coming from?


The condensate pan may be cracked/out of place or the drain tube may be clogged/defective. Water leaks at the conclusion of the defrost cycle, then evaporates.

Water appears on the floor outside the fridge. I have a side by side fridge freezer, Magic Chef


There's a tray under the refrigerator that catches the water dripping down when your auto-defrost cycle runs. Usually this water evaporates before the tray overfills. Either you don't have enough air flow around the refrigerator for the water to evaporate, or the tray may have developed a leak.

Water leaks under left door


The problem would be with the water valve solenoid, depends on the make and model one in the back and the other one behind the panel on the left door so it's better to replace both at the same time to be sure it won't leak again. The price would be around $200 replaced by professional, if do it your self, parts cost around $90 and it can take up to 2 to replace it.

Why is water leaking from front of bottom freezer?


Your refrigerator defrost on the average about every 8 hours so the water that accumulates during defrost has to go somewhere right? You have a defrost drain blockage.
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! Not all blocke drains act the same when your refrigerator leaks so please ask should you have questions. Please provide the model number found around the fresh food section door frame. Kenmore model numbers look like this example=> 321.1234567 If you run into any problems along the way of repair please let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

I woke up and my kitvhen was under water! I wanna know how to solve my leaking refrigerator problem.


find the leak would most likely be coming from the rear of the machine if your kitchen was under water there might be a water valve around the back side of the machine in which u could inspect futher to find if it is the watervalve or one of the lines coming to or going from the machine if you have icemaker and water on door u should have a water valve if you do not then i would check the drain pan that is near the compressor i this is full then your starting to have a defrost problem in which youa re getting to much ice on the inside of your freezer

Water leaking and ice in bottom shelf of freezer


Chances are you have a bad seal around the door if it's leaking from the inside which causes the ice to form as well, or if it's leaking from under the freezer you lave a bad heating element that evaporates the water collected in the pan under the freezer or you have a clogged hose that goes to the pan under the freezer which also causes the ice to form because the water has no place to go. Defrost and try to find a way to blow out the hose that goes from your freezer to the pan under the freezer and that should take care of your problem.

Water is leaking around the water filter area


take and shut off the water to the unit then take the filter base off so that you can see where the tubing goes into the filter. you may have to replace the tubing if it was cut during the move.

Leak running down front


Take the recess cup out and seal the area around it right where the front stainless steel panel meets the recess (right at the front of the recess) with clear silicone to prevent water from getting inside the door, then running out of the plastic frame area around the dispenser and running down the freezer door or out the bottom of the door. After the silicone has set, replace drip cup.
