Thank you for your post, Tom Haney!

From my understanding you have water leaking from the top of your refrigerator down to your crisper area. It sounds like a possible blockage within your drain line. I would recommend performing a manual defrost on your refrigerator and you can do that by disconnecting the power for about three to four hours. That should help clear any blockage within your drain line. I hope this helps. -Matt

Can I take the freezer door apart and wrap the water line with more insolation


No, you can't. The line goes into the mold of the machine with no access there.You have either an air leak in the dispenser area, around the ice shoot possibly, or the resevoir, which is located on the refrigerator side in the lower area behind the drawers is freezing, which is most likely the case. There are vents on the lower section for the crisper drawers. If you take out the drawers you'll find a roll of 1/4 " tubing which they call a resevoir that cools the water down. This is probably frozen,and you can insulate this, but I would raise the temperature in the fridge side or close the vents to the crisper area.

I have Whirlpool refrigerator without ice maker, It leaks water down inside of the crisper drawers . What can be wrong with it


The most common problem is the defrost drain hole is plugged or frozen over.And the defrosted water from the evap coil is leaking in the fridge compartment,You may have to remove the back panel in the freezer compartment and defrost the evap coil and drain area.

My Whirlpool refrigerator is leaking and water is dripping on to the shelves and in the bottom of the fridge under the crispers. I had a guy from Cal Tech Services to look at it 3 times now and it still...


Hello,

On a top-freezer when the drain stops up water will back up turning to ice and eventually filling the air ducks with ice blocking airflow to the fresh food section causing it not to cool. You will also see a water leak inside the fresh food section. To fix this, remove the evaporator cover, (back or bottom of freezer) and then remove all the ice. Once all the ice is removed, you need to unclog the drain. I do this by forcing hot water down the drain with a turkey baser but you can use any squirt bottle, I have even used the water hose. Once the drain is clear, mix water and baking soda and pour it down the drain to prevent this from happening again anytime soon.

Hope this helpout,

We are getting a small pool of water in the refrigerator, beneath the crispers. It pools toward the front, and we can't tell where it's coming from. Any suggestions?


The water is probably running down the back wall , due to a defrost drain clog . To stop this leak , you will need to remove the food and the ice maker from the freezer ( if equipped ) . Remove the rear freezer panel . Using a hair dryer , start in the middle , below the coils , defrosting , until you see the drain hole . Use hot water to help defrost the hole . Once water starts going thru the hole , use a small hose inserted into the hole , and blow thru , to remove any unseen debris in the drain line . Then re-assemble the freezer section .

Water accumulated under crisoer drawers and leaking onto floor.


That water is coming from your freezer during the defrost cycle. Normally there is a drain in your freezer that goes to a cup in your refrigerator and through the back of your refrigerator through a drain tube which extends down to a drip pan. If this tube gets plugged up, water will overflow in the cup and leak at the back wall of your refrigerator and through the holes that lead to the crisper's floor area. If you can remove the cup and using a wire dislodge anything blocking the drain, clean the cup of any debris and check your freezer drain for any obstruction causing water backing up and leaking !

Water under the crisper bins in the refrigerator -


Replace the door seal on the freezer. When they go bad, outside air leaks into the freezer and when it kicks into automatic defrost, the ice crystals melt and run down the back of the refrigerator. The oldar models had a drain under the crispers that drained into a pan near the condensor coils. It was a heat source that evaporated the water. Some brainstorm decided they weren't necessary.

Roper Refrigerator - manufactured 12/99 - RT18DKXH W00


tata75,
Happy to assist you,

you said,
For the past three days, water has been leaking/freezing at an alarming rate. The freezer had about 2 inches of ice built up and the bottom of the refrigerator is holding water, too. Both crisper s were FULL of water. I don't know if the ice maker connection is broken or what. Looks like I have to cut off the cold water completely to the sink to get it to stop.

Sounds like the ice maker or its line is leaking the water to me. And obviously it will freeze in the freezer.

You need hands on service.
