Water Leaking Inside Refrigerator


If water leaks inside your refrigerator
(and it WILL, at some point) you can fix
it yourself. My 26 year old fridge was leaking
and I fixed it completely. It is a Kenmore
top freezer, bottom refrigerator model.

In the good old models, one had to defrost the
fridge every few months manually.

In the recent models, the fridge defrosts automatically,
once or twice a day, and the water is supposed to drain
down a long drain tube into a pan located at the bottom of
the fridge. This collected water in the pan evaporates
by the heat under the fridge.

Now the drain tube can get clogged, by food debris and/or
ice. Thus when the water cannot drip through the drain tube
the water drips inside the fridge.

The drain tube is located behind the fridge, which is pretty
easy to take it out and clean. However usually the clog is
not in the long tube but in the connector assembly located
in the backside of the fridge that leads to the long drain tube.

To get to the connector assembly, you need to unscrew and
take out the back panel of the freezer compartment. You would
see the evaporator coil and a tray under the coil where the water
is supposed to drip through. If you find the tray completely frozen
with ice, let it melt off. To speed up melting, you may blow
hot air via a hair dryer. Once the ice is clear, you should see
a drain hole in the middle of the tray. This could be clogged,
which needs to be unclogged.

Next unscrew and open the thermostat control assembly located
in the inside of the back of the refrigerator compartment just above
the light bulb fixture. Once you take the cover off (you will
also have to take the knobs out) you will see a small tray cup about
2" x 2" x 1/2" into which water from the top freezer compartment
drain hole is supposed to drain. Pull out the tray cup, and if clogged,
unclog it, clean it and put it back.

To check if the drain works ok, pour some water on the tray
under the evaporator coil (top freezer compartment) and see if it
immediately drains into the tray located at the bottom of the fridge
at the floor level. If it does, you got it; and you can assemble things
back in the reverse order you took the pieces apart.

Needless to say, use a vacuum cleaner with a long suction tube to clean
out all the collected mess under the fridge. No matter how good
your housekeeping is, the bottom of the fridge will be full of dust.
With lot of patience (I mean lots of it) you should be saving hundreds
of dollars. Attached are some pictures I took. Call me before you dig !

I have a 2004 toyota Tundra with 15000 miles on it. Oil fill tube has yellowish oil in it. The dipstick looks like it has just a hair yellow color on it,but the main color is oil colored. It is a part...


It sure sounds like a blown headgasket is leaking water into the oil. Maybe you could drain the oil and see for sure. Is the yellow color high up on the dipstick, and the oil color on the lower part? I'm afraid it's bad news, Mark.

Water keeps pooling on the second shelf in the refrigerator, and I can not find the source.


Water collecting inside a fridge (that doesn't have a water dispenser in the fresh food compartment) is usually a sign of a clogged tube that directs water collected during the defrost cycle of the freezer coil. The defrost heater melts frost / ice that collects on the coil and water drips into a pan directly under the coil in the freezer compartment. The pan has a tube that allows the water to flow into a pan at the bottom of the fridge, where it is generally evaporated by the heat of the compressor.

You'll have to access the coil and pan (probably behind the back wall of the freezer - but check your model first!) and clear the obstruction from the tube. It is not uncommon for bacteria, mold, etc to grow in the tube. After clearing with a blunt flexible snake - run 4 - 6 ounces of a 10% bleach 90% water mixture to kill any growths remaining in the tube.

Sometimes, ice can form in the top inch or two of the tube, too. A turkey baster can be used to direct hot water into the tube to quicken the thaw process.

If there is water dispensing in the fridge, check all lines and filters in the compartment for spits, cracks and leaks. Repair / replace parts as needed.

Do not perform these steps with the power on!

I hope this helps!

Water collecting on bottom of 13 year old fridge


All refrigerators create water when their cooling coils shed frost build-up - that water typically collects in a tray under the fridge body through a drainage tube that exits from a collection trough inside the fridge under the coil through the back of the fridge housing.

First check the tray to be sure it is not accumulating food particles which ultimately can produce molds. Clean any water from that tray first, then look for the tube exiting on the back of the fridge see whether there is any moisture at the end of the tube under the fridge and notice whether the tray has had any recent moisture. Chances are the tube is either plugged or similarly any connector through the fridge wall.

Now, be CAREFUL not to puncture the hose or the connector with a sharp instrument however the drain path must be cleared. Try blowing through the drain inside the fridge with a straw, then add a small amount of baking soda into the collection trough, adding a small amount of water to dissolve and allow this to gradually drain out normally. Only detach the outside tube if the problem has not been resolved in this manner. The tube can be replaced easy enough, the connector through the back is another question - see you parts dealer if it has been compromised.

Good luck!

Freezer drips water into frigde filling up ottom tray


Hello, If it is a top mount freezer then there is a drain that runs from the freezer to the drain pan that gets gummed up sometimes and if that happens then the water has no place to go but the fridge. Look all the way in the back of the fridge and you'll see a yellowish colored tube. You can just pop that out and take it to the sink and clean it out.. Hope this helps

Water leak from under fridge when water dispenser is used


The water line is broken somewhere from the water dispencer all the way down to the water valve. I usually find that it is broken next to the water valve. Hint: Water valve is blue and located behind the fridge in the compressor department. Water line is 1/4inch clear tube that is probaly now a "yellowish" color. Easy to spot, easy to fix, especially if located next to water valve...
