SOURCE: water drains from freezer compartment into refridgerator

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

Whirlpool refridgerator leaks water from freezer into refridgerator


Need to check the defrost drain for clogs. Empty the freezer and pull the panel in the back. Use a turkey baster to the drain hole to see if that will clear it. If there is a clog, insert a wire down the drain hole to force the clog down the drain pan.

Our refrigerator has started to leak water outside the refrigerator in the front. What could be causing this?


from inside refridgerator, or from below?
could be your condensation drain pan or the tube from the refridgerator to the condensate drain pan is stopped up. Have to take lower access panel off back of unit.If it has an icemaker, the water line could be leaking.

Water dripping sound coming from new refridgerator


Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";} Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan. This is the only source of water if nothing else is connected. Are you seeing and water anywhere.

There is ice buildup in the drain and maybe under the seperator. Remove the back panel in the freezer and the botom floor of the freezer and remove the ice. Be careful of the styrofoam ducts. Eric

The back part of the refridgerator inside where the cold air comes out is leaking water and the back inside wall is wet?


You should fine a drain line just below the freezer level in the back. The drain line is more than likely plugged. Check the loop seal down by the drain pan under the back of the refrigerator. It may be restricted at that point. It may require a complete defrost of the freezer to clear the ice formed in the drain from a back-up.
