Your defrost drain for the condensate is blocked somewhere on its path to the condensate evaporation pan below your refrigerator. The tray begins in the back of freezer at bottom of the evaporator coil. The tray may have a bad seal or have ice blocking the drain entrance. Unplug and locate the blockage remove and clean the opening and flush water with a little Clorox down the line to help to dislodge any algae or slime. Wet vac May Help. Measure flow to see that drain then works properly...Sea Breeze

Frs26zth side by side refrigerator is leaking water from under the freezer side - the water line and the ice maker are not hooked up. So what could be the problem


Hello there:- I presurme the water is leaking out underneath the drawer on the freezer compartment. Since there is no other prosibility where the water come from . So it must be the defrost water not running down the drain tube to the drain pan through the drain hole on the freezer side because it is blocked . Clean out this drain pan hole and the drain tube see you can sort out the problem. God bless .

Water is leaking onto top shelf of fridge. It is a top freezer.


Sounds like you have a frozen drain in the freezer. You can remove the back panel of the freezer and take a turkey baster and run hot water down the drain line to clear it. Once its cleared you will want to dump an additional cup of water down to make sure that its clear. This will stop the defrost tray from overflowing when the unit goes into defrost. This is where the water is coming from.
Hope this helps _MJ_

Kenmore side by side water leaking from freezer


You can buy a kit from whirlpool. In the kit is a metal tab that mounts onto the defrost heater. It is long enough to go into the hole. When the heater comes on for defrost the heat transfers down to the hole and keeps it from getting plugged up with ice. Part number 819043

Hotpoint csx22d side by side has leak under freezer side @ door...coming from wiring harness that runs up into bottom of freezer maybe??????


This leak , is coming from the defrost drain , inside the freezer section , at the back . The defrost drain is clogged with ice . Remove the bottom freezer crisper , and use a hairdryer to defrost the ice . You will see a drain hole where the defrost water is supposed to drain thru . Hot water helps defrost this hole . Once defrosted , use a small hose inserted into the drain hole , to blow thru , to remove built up debris , inside the unseen drain line .

Every few days a stream of water comes out


The defrost heater is working, but the drain is blocked with ice. Every time the ref. goes into defrost the water does not drain down to the pan underneath the ref. You will need to remove the inside back cover in freezer and remove all the ice that has built up. you will need to defrost the ice with boiling water until the drain opens. then you will need to attach a heat probe to the heater and down into the drain. Usually you can use a piece of copper or aluminum wire to attach to the heater.

Check and make sure you defrost drain in the freezer isn't frozen. The water may be coming from the bottom of the freezer inside. When the heater comes on to defrost the evaporator, the water drips in to a small hole in the back bottom of the freezer inside. If the drain freezes, the water runs out into the freezer on the bottom and eventually onto the floor in front of the freezer door. It will eventually create a gap and let moisture into the freezer and may show up in the refrigerator section as condensation. Remove the ice build up including the alluminum drain pan area where the drain is located. Pour hot water into the drain to defrost it. You may have to remove the back of the freezer wall on the bottom to get better access. If the water goes down the drain, its clear. If you need a part for your refrigerator, please email me on ebay under user name themackshack. Good luck! , Mack
