Check the pipe that drains the water from the avaperator (the thing that gets cold inside on the fridge)
periodically your fridge will defrost and the water should drip through a tube and collect at the rear of the fridge
If the pipe is blocked the water collects inside at the bottom ( under the crisper)

SOURCE: Samsun RS265LA Water is under crisper drawer

Sounds like the typical defrost condensate line is stopped up and every time your refrigerator goes into defrost instead of water following the drain tube to the pan below your refrigerator where warm air blows over the water and returns it back into the air inside your home. This is a common problem that happens. Sometimes just the refrigerator leaning to left or right will begin the problem. Other times the tube gets backed up because of slime an crud and begins slowing the drain flow down to the point it backs up and spills over into freezer or fresh food compartment. Every refrigerator is a little different so click here=> REPAIR OF LEAKING REFRIGERATORS and scroll down to near bottom of page. Read and watch the You Tube movie clip and other material and if you have more questions ask. You may need to remove the rear panel in back of the freezer compartment or if your brand has dual evaporators you may need to go into the rear of the fresh food compartment. Not every Samsung has dual evaporators. here is your Service Manual=> RS265LA It does appear that you have two evaporators on your model. Look this may take a wet and dry vacuum and Clorox with warm water and once the drain is cleared you will not need to do this often. On page 17 is a view of the two evaporators. Watch the movie at the link above and it will be so much easier. Contact me if you run into problems. If need you may contact me here on Fixya or my Forum=> Appliance 911 My contact information is located above the Fixya Ad on my blog here=> Sea Breeze Appliance Parts and Technical Services, www.pcappliancerepair.com
Thanks, Sea Breeze

When water is leaking inside of your refrigerator, the problem could be as simple as condensation from humidity or a worn gasket, especially since you purchased your refrigerator used. The problem could also be a clogged drain or frozen evaporator.

To help you determine the problem, along with solutions that you can use, check out Refrigerator leaking water inside for some simple troubleshooting steps. I hope that helps!

Refrigerator leaking


this means that when the refrig goes into defrost depending on the age either the hole for the water to drain out after defrosting cycle is plugged and needs to be thawed out and blown out with compressed air of if the water drains out under the crisper droor or behind the crispers the drain is plugged there. it could also be a drain heater problem. dont know age of refrig.

A 2 to 21/2 year old Samsung bottom mount freezer RB217ABPN purchased from Costco. Water is starting to collect under the crisper drawers in the fridge section. This is the third time in a couple of months...


You have a leaking water tank behind the crisper drawer. You will need to get back there to determine if the tank is leaking or the water connection is leaking. This will only leak if you close the door and dispense water from the dispenser.

Water is forming on the floor. Appears the water is pooling under the crisper drawer, then seeps through the seal. GE TBX 18CI. Any ideas?


You should not have any water at all forming inside the frig compartment unless you have a water dispenser on the frig. The water resevoir is located in the frig compartment at the bottom behind crisper. There may be a small leak or loose water connection on it. Hope this helps.

Water under the crisper bins in the refrigerator -


Replace the door seal on the freezer. When they go bad, outside air leaks into the freezer and when it kicks into automatic defrost, the ice crystals melt and run down the back of the refrigerator. The oldar models had a drain under the crispers that drained into a pan near the condensor coils. It was a heat source that evaporated the water. Some brainstorm decided they weren't necessary.
