Most leaks inside the refrigerator or freezer are caused by a blockage in the drain line beginning in the freezer and caused by a blockage somewhere in the drain line to the base drain pan below refrigerator. I have included a link to a page that will help you find and resolve this problem. Sea Breeze

Water was leaking inside on passengers side, now


HVAC drain tube was blocked and condensation could not drain to the outside of the vehicle

as a result the water pooled inside the HVAC case leaking on the inside and killing your blower motor and probably blower motor resistor

clear the drain, replace the blower and resistor and you'll be back in business

Water is leaking inside


Clogged drain plug. the plug is located in the back of the freezer. Empty the freezer out and pour VERY hot water down the drain hole slowly this will unclog the drain and will stop water from leaking inside your fridge.

Icetube leaking water inside freezer and outside back of freezer


Your refrigerator needs a new water valve and possibly some new water tubing. You can find the correct part by going to sears.com and entering the refrigerator's model number in the parts search field. When you have the valve, shut off the water to the refrigerator. If you're not sure how to do that, just shut off water to the entire house. Be sure to run the kitchen sink after you shut the water off to relieve any presure and double check that the water is completely shut off.

Be sure to unplug the refrigerator before you start this project...water and electricity aren't friends! Using a 1/4" nut driver or socket, remove the cardboard or metal cover off the back of the refrigerator. Follow the water line to the water valve, unscrew the nut going to the valve, and remove the water line. There are 2 screws holding the water valve to the refrigerator cabinet; remove the screws and gently pull the valve out. Unplug the electrical connectors and remove the water lines. Take the new valve, connect the water lines and electrical plugs, screw the valve back into place, attach the water line and turn the water back to to test for leaks.

Since the valve has been leaking inside your freezer it would be a great idea to clean out your freezer and let the water tube and lines thaw. Find a place for your frozen food, unplug the unit and let it sit overnight with the doors open. Don't forget to remove the ice bin, as these make quite the mess when the ice melts. Once it's thawed, plug it back in, make sure the water is on and not leaking and enjoy!

All items in freezer were defrosted when I opened the door this morning. Fridge is semi cold.


Hi



Some leaking water refrigerator helps....

  1. My older style Amana freezer on top refrigerator is leaking inside
  2. My refrigerator is leaking water inside
  3. My refrigerator is leaking water onto the floor
My refrigerator is leaking water inside the fridge:

Most times this is a plugged defrost drain system. The defrost heater in the freezer section melts the frost and changes it to water, this water is suppose to flow down a drain system. If this drain system is restricted or plugged the water will leak inside the refrigerator. The drain system starts in the freezer section with a tray built under the evaporator coil. The water is funneled through a small hose into a cup in the top middle of the fresh food section ( not on all models, but this is the most common way ), from there, the water is directed out the back wall to a drain hose that runs down the back of the refrigerator into a condensing tray. The heat created under the fridge makes the water evaporate and disappear. Some of the cups ( in the top back of the fresh food section ) can be removed for cleaning. A turkey baster can be used to help clean out the drain system. Fill the baster with hot water and "blast" it into the drain hose to help flush it out. A piece of wire or pipe cleaner can also be pushed into the drain hoses to help clean then out. On a S x S style of fridge the drain system is in the bottom back of the freezer section and often you will have to remove the evaporator cover to access the drain hole. You can clean this out in the same manner as previously mentioned, but because of the water leaking into the freezer instead of the fresh food section you will have to remove the ice build up to clean out the drain system. For some reason Whirlpool has found a need to "hide" the drain hose inside the walls now ( Whirlpool makes many of the Kenmore branded refrigerators ) on there top freezer refrigerators. This makes accessing the drain hose to flush it out more difficult, no cup inside the fresh food section, no hose down the outside back wall and the only access is inside the freezer section behind the back false wall and under the evaporator coils.

Please do rate the solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Air Conditioner 3 in 1 danby SPAC12030 leaking water on the floor. No water in right side compartiment also no water in the back reservoir. Water leak from right side of the machine. From the right side...


I had that problem last year. When I took it apart I found that the drainage hoses that lead to the reservoirs were plugged with dust build up. I clean out the hoses as well as the rest of the insides. I have since placed the entire unit inside a shallow (under bed) style rubermaid tote and have not had any more water leaking. Hope that helps you.

Leaking water


you need to remove the bottom drawer and check your drain in the back each time it goes into defrost it sounds like the water is running to the bottom of the unit instead of down the drain

Defroster leaks


is the drain hole at the inside/back of the fridge blocked? check that you do not push foodstuffs too far back against the wall, and is there excess condensation from veg etc?
