Water leaking inside it

  1. Check the lines to your dispenser
If the lines to your dispenser are broken or damaged you will need to replace them.
  1. Damaged drain pan
If your drain pan has holes or cracks it will also need to be replaced.
  1. Clogged drain
If you experience any clogged drains, they must also be unclogged or replace. If you experience this at the ceiling of your unit it can be attributed to a clog in the freezer section. Remove the divider and let the insulation thaw out and dry.

SOURCE: Kenmore refrigerator (model 106.78187891) leaking inside

Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


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.

A refrigerator that I bought second hand but has worked remarkedly well and still does with one exception. Is it worth fixing.


Of course it is worth fixing! This leak is cause by a defrost drain that is blocked with ice and sludge. I really can't tell you how to remove that rear panel unless you provide a model number. This problem is worse with the Samsung dual evaporators as the evaporator inside the fresh food compartment is usually the one that causes problems on those models. There are a few GE dual evaporator refrigerators also that are really a Sumsung with the GE brand name. Here is a link that may help but you need to pay close attention to the videos and focus especially on your Brand

LEAKING FRIDGE


A magnitude of problems could be caused by this, you should really call someone to come out and look at the refrigerator. With that model having a ice maker and water dispenser, it could be a crack in the water filtration which is typically located in the lower read of the refrigerator. If nothing else seems to be wet on the inside of the refrigerator you can almost guarantee that its the filter and pump in the back leaking which will require a skilled professional to look at it.

Ge top freezer model tbx211a leaking water on occasion inside fridge


Drain is clogged inside freezer.

Your model number is missing a few characters, but this model should have a black tube coming out of the back side of your refrigerator about 1/2 way from the floor that drains into a pan underneath near compressor. Check this first to see if it is clogged. Carefully pull it off where it enters the back wall (will need to pull out refrigerator to access this) try running a wire into tube to clear and pour water down tubing to make sure it is clear.

Next you may need to pull the back panel inside freezer to excess evaporator coils. Turn off or unplug refrigerator while doing this and pour hot water onto ice build up under coils. Once that is clear and water is draining fine into pan under refrigerator, reassemble and your problem should be solved for a few more years again.

Refridgerator Leaks


I can't find this model number anywhere and am unfamiliar with the "Evolution" series. However, if it is a top/bottom unit (freezer on top, fridge on bottom) it sounds like you have a clogged drain.

If you pull the back panel off inside of the freezer (where the evaporator is housed) you will see a drain hole, usually in the rear center) that is probably full of ice. If this drain is plugged, it will cause the water to back up into the refrigerator, usually onto the top shelf or under the veggie bins, and possibly onto the floor.

You need to clear it out, and make sure that water flows through it freely, to the pan underneath the unit. The best way to do this is with a hair dryer and a copper wire, but be careful not to melt the inside of the freezer with it. When it's clear, you might want to take a hose and blow through it to make sure there's nothing trapped inside.

Please let me know if you need any further help with this issue.
