Water dripping from freezer onto top shelf of fridge with ice buildup back of freezer


the defroster isn't close enough to the drain to be effective. remove the back wall of the inside of the freezer, remove the excess ice. clear out the ice from the drain using hot water and a turkey baster. there is a kit from whirlpool that uses a piece of metal and a screw around the defrost rod, but I found out that a piece of 14 gauge solid core wire with the insulation stripped off works great too. stick the stripped wire into the drain, 2 to 3 inches, and wrap the rest around the defrost rod.

Whirlpool Fridge makes a loud dripping sound all the time G56SHE


Erin,

The water you hear sounds like it's coming from the automatic defroster in the freezer compartment. It runs down a drain tube into the pan you describe under the fridge. The pan is heated and evaporates the water.

Just some possible explanations if you are hearing "lots" of water"

* You may be in a warmer, more humid climate
* The temperature and humidity in your dwelling is elevated
* The door gasket on the freezer may be leaking
* The freezer is too full
* The freezer door is not closing properly
* The freezer door is being left open for extended periods
* There is a problem with the defrost cycle

If you are hearing water running all the time, check the ice maker water line and fill valve (if you have an ice maker) - there could be a leak or other malfunction.

Having a water dripping from top of fridge!! p


Having a water dripping from top of fridge!!

The problem could be a number of things but you have to know the top of the fridge is the bottom of the freezer (usually) and this surface must be colder than the air that's being circulated in the refg compartment. Obviously Side by Side or bottom freezer would be differant.

4 items to check :

1your air damper switch is set to give you a colder freezer and not allowing enough cooling and dehumidification in the fridge compartment (explanation below of the reason you have to have air flow unobstructed)

2 the defrost on the freezer is not taking place (Explained below)

3 the door seals are not sealing. Use a piece of paper like a $1.00 and slide between the door gasket and the frame if you can pull and push it and it not fold up the seal is open and not working.

4 some fridges have a energy saver switch which is a heater. This switch turns the heater off. It is not needed in everyone's home or locality so the switch may be set to "save energy" and thus not keeping the "dew" off the fridge (usually these heaters are only on the doors and possible on the outer sides of the fridge and not the ceiling, so I doubt this is it, but I do like to eliminate this).


One of the more common things is the defrost not taking place and this can be a verity of thing Ive seen drain lines stop up and refreeze eventually to the point where the upper part of the fridge is too cold not to drip when the humidity come up like in the spring time. A faulty defrost timer / initiator or a bad element or safety switch, bad wire can also cause non defrost.
Defrost is required because the freezer is where the coldest part of the refrigeration circuit is and it requires air from the fridge to move over the coil. When this movement stops a cold ceiling can result. It will eventually follow with warmer fridge temps as humidity and time progresses.

Hope this helps with the mystery of most common problems associated with:
having a water dripping from top of fridge!!
Please grade ma accordingly and 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

DRIPPING SOUND MAYBE POPPING ALMOST


This is normal operation, every 8 to 10 hours the heater in your freezer section turns on to defrost ice and frost from evaporator coil, this melting water hitting the heater is what is making popping and hissing noises.
