A leaky door gasket will allow excess moisture in and it will condense on the cold surfaces and can also cause excess frost on the evaporator coil causing more water to go into the drain pan.
A good gasket will hold a dollar bill securely all away around the door.

Does a bosch fridge freezer always have water in the evaporation tray?


Hello Mary;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

It is normal to have water in your evaporator drain pan.

Your refrigerator goes through a defrost cycle every 8-10 hours, where your refrigerator will shut down for about 20 minutes and your defrost heater turns on.
You do not need to clean your drain pan. You have a condenser fan that blows across the drain pan to evaporate the condensate.

You drain pan will fill during the defrost cycles. the condenser fan blow across the drain pan and will evaporate the water.

The amount of water in your drain pan will depend on conditions such as high frost in the freezer.

Mary, you had just happened up the drain pan not completely evaporating the condensate.

Sounds to me like you are in good shape.

We had 2 new units installed 2 yrs ago and now it's sweating


1st of all the pan under your unit should not have water in it unless the primary drain from the evaporator coil is plugged.

2nd the secondrary drain pan underneath the unit should go to some kind of drain, along with the drain
from the evaporator coil. They should not be hooked
together until they reach the proper drain.

Check to see if they are hooked up together, if one is
plugged the other one will be to. The drain line could
be to small as well, check to see if they ran the condensate drain in 3/4inch pvc pipe or hose minimum.

It could very well be that they did not insulate the plenum, if it is sweating on the outside, insulate it.

Freezer drain line and upper drain pan freezes up regularly.


sounds like your fill tube is leaking
you should be able to pull it out from the back of the machine
to inspect it
if the fill tab on the tube is facing in any other direction than down it should be straight down

Water leaking from under refrigerator


Analyzing the likely source
Instructions
STEP 1: Move the refrigerator out from the wall and look for the location of the leak. STEP 2: Check the side panels and the seals around the door for beads of "sweat." This could indicate a condensation problem. STEP 3: Check the floor. A puddle there could indicate a missing or cracked drip pan, or a leak in the water line that feeds your ice maker. STEP 4: Check for water seeping from the front of the freezer or the refrigerator. This could indicate your defrost drain is plugged or your ice maker is leaking. Fixing a condensation problem
Instructions
STEP 1: Check that the doors shut correctly. Hold each door about halfway open, then let go. If the doors don't shut completely, adjust the screw legs on the front of the refrigerator so the unit tilts back a bit. With adjustable pliers, turn each leg one revolution clockwise. Recheck the doors and, if necessary, repeat the process until they shut securely. STEP 2: Inspect the door gaskets. Look for debris that may keep the doors from shutting. Also check for cracks or gaps in the gaskets that could allow the cold air to seep out. If you find debris, clean the gaskets with warm, soapy water. If you find cracks or gaps, you'll need to replace the gaskets (see How to Fix a Refrigerator That Cools Poorly). STEP 3: If your refrigerator is equipped with a door-frame heater that evaporates condensation, make sure the heater is turned on. The switch should be located with your other refrigerator controls. Fixing a drip-pan problem
Instructions
STEP 1: Pull off the grill that runs along the bottom of your refrigerator. STEP 2: Locate the drip pan, using a flashlight if necessary. The pan should be sitting on top of a set of black condenser coils and directly below a drain tube that carries water from your freezer when it is in defrost mode. STEP 3: Place the drip pan in your sink and fill it with water to test for leaks. If it leaks, order a replacement from your appliance dealer. STEP 4: If the drip pan doesn't leak, clean it with warm, soapy water, then reinstall the pan and the refrigerator grill. Fixing a clogged defrost drain
Instructions
STEP 1: Locate the defrost drain. It should be a round hole or a channel running under the vegetable and fruit bins in the refrigerator or along the floor of the freezer compartment. STEP 2: Inspect the drain for clogs and remove any debris. If necessary, use a small screwdriver to break up debris that's trapped in the drain hole. STEP 3: Fill a meat baster with hot water and force it through the drain to make sure the clog is gone. If the drain is operating properly, the hot water will fill the drip pan. Fixing a leaky ice maker
Instructions
STEP 1: Pull the refrigerator away from the wall and locate the copper water-supply line. It runs from the house water line to the refrigerator water-supply valve. (To get to the supply valve, you may have to use a screwdriver or a nut driver and socket to remove your refrigerator's back access panel.) STEP 2: Inspect the copper supply line, the supply valve, and the plastic supply tube that runs from the other side of the supply valve to the back of the ice maker. STEP 3: If a connection is leaking, tighten it with an adjustable wrench. If either the copper supply line or the plastic supply tube is leaking, you need to replace it. STEP 4: Turn off the water supply. The valve may be under the kitchen sink or connected to a cold-water pipe in your basement. STEP 5: Remove the faulty line and take it to a hardware store to get an exact replacement. STEP 6: Install the new line, tighten the connections with the adjustable wrench and turn the water back on. Overall Things You'll Need

Overall Tips & Warnings
To keep door gaskets clean and supple, wash them twice a year with warm, soapy water, then coat them with a light film of petroleum jelly.
Some refrigerators have an internal defrost drain that is meant to be serviced by a professional. If you can't find your drain, call a pro.
To prevent possible electrical shock, always unplug your refrigerator before working on it.
Put carpet scraps or another soft material under the front legs before pulling your refrigerator away from the wall. Otherwise, the legs could damage the flooring.

Water puddles front left of side by side ge profile fridge


If you clear the drain, the water will not fill up again. (try hot, but not boiling, water, forced into the drain hole with a turkey baster) When drain is clear, water will run into the drain pan located near the compressor. The fan will cause that water to evaporate.

Drain pan of refrigerator is filling up and overflowing onto the floor. This never happened before.


Maybe it is because of increased humidity inside the fridge. This could be caused by the door not being properly closed or leaking.

Water leaking from freezer into fridge


there are several things to check for. The condensing defrost tray under the fridge can crack or develop a hole and leak onto the floor. A door gasket not closing properly may cause sweating and leak onto the floor. Some fridge's have a humidity switch inside the fridge that should be turned on to prevent sweating on the center bar between the fridge and freezer section. If your fridge has developed a frost free failure problem, often the frost will travel down the suction line at the back of the fridge and drip water on the floor. The heat exchangertubing can separate and also sweat and drip on the floor. A kit to repair a separated heat exchanger line, comes with instructions as well. Ice maker and chilled water fill lines can crack and leak as well, this is fairly common with the plastic lines as they can dry out and crack.
