Samsung RF261BEAESR clogged defrost drain

My Samsung refrigerator is leaking water into the bottom of the fridge under the vegetable drawers. I believe it's a clogged defrost drain, but don't know how to access it.

SOURCE: Why is ice forming under the bottom drawer of my Samsung American fridge freezer Rsa1shpn and then water eventually leaking out the door? I have defrosted the fridge freezer but still have the proble

There is a drain tube located under the panel of most freezers. If that clogs up, the auto defrost can't work. The freezer defrosts by evaporating all the moisture out of the compartment. So, check that first. Secondly, a leaky door seal can also cause that problem. You can order door seals online or on Amazon.

Water leaking on floor from clogged defrost drain line. How do we defrost the drain line so I can fix the drain hole. I'm trying to do fix like shown on YouTube.


The video is spot on for preventing ice from clogging the drain. To clear the ice from a frozen drain - you can either unplug the fridge and open the door and let it defrost without any additional effort on your part.

or

if you don's have a place to put the contents of the fridge, access the drain area as shown in the video. Get some dry towel handy for absorbing water. Fill a pot or pan with HOT tap water and draw the hot water into a turkey baster and then squirt the hot water down the frozen drain opening. Repeat as needed until you've melted the ice that has filled the tube - and mop up the excess water with the towels as needed.

Frigidaire FFHS2311LWD has water pooling up and freezing bottom drawer and lower vent. Drain tube doesn't seem to be clogged. Water leaks onto floor some days.


the drain tube is most likely clogged. if the lower vent is freezing up there is no way to confirm because it is covered with ice. the reason water leaks onto the floor is, the refrigerator goes into defrost, frost melts and runs down the ice to the door. use a hair dryer to remove all ice, then use hot water to check drain. drain tube may be up to a foot long and may have a trap. you may have to go in through the back to gain access to the drain

Model # FFU14F9GW.. water pooling under unit


Greetings,
If the water is pooling under the bottom drawer. I'd say your drain is clogged..the drain will freeze over from something getting into the drain i.e. food particle....The best thing to do. Is use a hair drier to defrost the drain pan and then make sure your drain runs free by pouring water into it....

if this is pooling under the refrigerator and out on the floor..There is a drain pan problem..and /or the drain hose going to pan is out of the pan , or has a hole in it...correct as needed
If this has been helpful in fixing your problem..please leave a testimonial.....thank you

Defroster leaks


you have a cloged evap. drain. the rf is defrosting properly but with the drain be clogged the water has to go somewhere which is generally in the crisper draws on top and bottom models. two way to clear up this issue. turn rf OFF for at least 48 to 72 hrs. to allow the drain to de-ice or take matters into your own hands and take the back panel off of the freezer and using boiling hot water pour it down the evap. drain tube until it flows like you just flushed a tiolet

ca. 2010 GE fridge with Samsung ice maker. I have to hold the reset on the icemaker every few days to keep making ice or it quits. What's the fix? When it works, there's a loud popping every 3 seconds for about 2 minutes, then a few minutes later ice harvests into the bin. With my hand against the outside of the fridge next to the icemaker, I can literally feel each pop. I originally thought it was the ice release heater failing that caused cubes to pop loose hard, but I couldn't find anything wrong electronically when I took things apart and examined the board and connections in the icemaker. I may have missed something mechanically that's causing some part to flex and then suddenly give against the wall inside every 3 secs as the clock cycles through the beginning of a harvest? What might that be? But after reassembly it now has the added feature of harvesting a few times and then stopping altogether. We run flat out of ice if I forget to press and hold the reset button for 10 secs. every few days. Apparently the clock is cycling incompletely or something now. Could a cog be missing/broken/out of alignment in the clockworks, such that when it gets so far along it slips, but can be reset? How about the lift arm? Could it be out of position inside such that something it's connected to isn't properly repositioning when the arm drops back down? Or could all of this be related to a faulty control board elsewhere in the fridge?
