    It is not a commercial model It has a drip pan..we looked at it .it is dry.



    one thing he did find is that there is "moisture" on the sides of the draws when he pulls out the freezer. He told me to keep paper towels in front of my freezer.



    Problem remains is that floor / frig/ freezer was fine 2 weeks ago..now my floor is warped.

SOURCE: Ice forming in bottom of freezer

Rita, your drain hole is frozen over and when your refer goes into defrost the water is running out into the cabinet instead of down the drain hole. Remove the evaporator cover and poor some boiling water in the evaporator drip pan. This should melt the ice and clear the drain hole....Catriver...post back.

SOURCE: frigidaire refrigerator with ice maker leaks water

It sounds like your ice maker is leaking.
If you are able, try opening up the ice maker for a visual inspection.
just remember to unplug first.
Apparently there is a leak somewhere.
Sometimes ice makers will over flow if the float gets stuck or a connection has come loose.
If you cannot work on it yourself, then I suggest looking up a service technician on the Fixya website.

SOURCE: water collects on shelves and below the crisper bins at bottom

Your defrost drain hole is frozen closed.
Remove the back freezer panel and defrost the ice with a hair dryer.
Once the drain is clear poura 1/4 cup bleach in the drain hole.

SOURCE: 10 yr old GE side by side: freezer is leaking

Your drain is frozen up and so every time unit goes into defrost the water refreezes in the freezer's bottom. You either have to shut fridge off completely and let it dethaw or use hot water and an ice pick to hurry up the process. The drain is located in the very back of freezer. You will have to pull out the bottom drawer to see it. Good luck

Why is water leaking on to hardwood floor and warping it.


Excessive water in the catch pan can be caused by a leak in the ice maker. Shut off the water supply and if the problem goes away it is caused by a small leak. If it continues it can be caused by high humidity in your home.

Thank you for listing a model#!! It really helps to see what you have and lets me diagnose it better for you.

Whirlpool bottom freezers with ice forming on the freezer floor is nothing new. It is formed most likely by an ongoing issue with the design of the defrost drain becoming clogged and there is a revised kit for it part# W10619951.

Whirlpool has extended the warranty of this issue only to two years from the date of purchase and will usually give you the part but charge for install. This is for most models and you would have to call them to verify if it is covered.

It can be put in in less then 10 minutes using just a 1/4" hex bit and a small flat blade screwdriver to release the clip on the old "slide" style drain.

Once installed,it is best to defrost the fridge for at least 24 hours (doors open and unplugged) to make sure all ice is melted from inside the unit.

The problem should not come back afterward

My Sub-Zero 550 is on a wood flooring that is experiencing severe water warping. I checked for leaks from the fridge at the water feed line to the water valve. The drain pan is ok Is there another...


Are you sure that it is water warping and not the heat from the compressor under the unit? Some wood flooring, such as laminate flooring is made up of pressed wood that is glued together and the heat may be warping the glue.

Water on floor under unit & ice bottom of freezer


By going online, saw several posts re this problem. In short, the water drain was clogged and there was also a problem with the defrost timer. Service man blew out the drain line with compressed air and installed a new timer. Voila! Problem fixed. Interestingly, the serviceman found a wad of what looked like putty, but was sticky like gum in the drain area. He said he had never encountered anything similar.

Frigidaire Side-By-Side Refrigerator Leaks Water on Floor


I don't have the same refrigerator, but had a similar issue with a GE. Melt the ice at the bottom of the freezer. I think the water comes from the auto defrost feature. There should be a hole at the back bottom of the freezer that water would go into, and run to an evaporator pan under the refrigerator. The tube may be blocked that allows this water to drain, so it is backing up in the bottom of the freezer, and overflowing through the front bottom of the freezer to your floor.
