If this is a freezer on top model Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help. Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.

Why is my, hoover fridge 423, leaking water from underneath, sometimes? Posted approx 7am.

there is a drain line that goes to the top of the pump motor, has a plastic tray on top of the pump were the water is turned to vapor/steam, can become blocked at the top and to much water goes into the container. inside the fridge is a round huck at the back you pull this out to clean the line. but it sometimes needs a drain cleaner line putting down if the blockage is down the pipe.

Water leaking in refrigerator and floor of a 1997 GE top freezer type,model numberTBX22P1

As the only source of water is condensation or melting food, I would check to see if there is a drain hole at the bottom back of the fridge. This hole is to drain any water into the back of the machine where it evaporates. Use a pipe cleaner or similar to poke the muck through the hole and the water will drain away. Keep this hole clean every time you clean your fridge.

There is a leak at the front of refrig clear water and all water lines have no holes and only happens in summer time

Just fixed mine w/the same problem! Unplug the fridge and pull it away from the wall. Check that your drain hose is not clogged: it runs down the back of your fridge and you need to disconnect the tubing from the fixture where it goes into the middle of the back of the fridge, by turning the fixture approx. 1/4 turn counterclockwise. This will help disconnect the tubing and will allow you to pull out the fixture which connects to the internal drain. I had to run a pipe cleaner and hot water thru this fixture, which has several S-curves in it that traps sediment. Check the tubing too. If these aren't clogged, your internal drain may be iced over. You will have to empty the contents of your freezer, and remove the icemaker and back panel of the freezer (my screws were 1/4-inch ratchet type). There is a drain hole at the middle bottom of the back wall. Check for ice and pour in very hot water to melt it. Check the inside of the bottom part of your fridge to make sure water isn't leaking in from the cooling vents at the control panel. If neither of these tasks works, then I don't know what to tell you! Good luck!

Leaking 'fridge

You have to remove the food and ice maker ( if equipped ) , and remove the back panel screws and the panel . Use a hair dryer , start in the center , under the coils , and defrost , until you see the drain hole . Use hot water to help defrost the hole . Once defrosted , use a small hose inserted into the drain hole , and blow thru , to remove any debris , built up inside the drain line . Reassemble .

I have a GE TBX25PAXCRWW top mount freezer model. It is leaking water from the light switch. I would assume it is a blocked evap line. Do I access it from the insde of the freezer or outside.

Your problem is a clogged defrost drain . This is accessed from inside the freezer section and by removeing the rear freezer panel . Use a hairdryer to defrost the pan , under the coils . Also , the drain line for your model , is located behind the refrig . So , you only have a short area between the drain hole and drain line , to clear . I would suggest blowing thru the drain hose behind the refrig also , to make sure it is clear .
