There is supposed to be a plastic pan there to catch that water so it can evaporate when the fan runs and blows air across it .

Water leaking on freezer shelves no water in ice maker


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that the ice maker in your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRS26H5AS, is not making ice and is leaking water onto your freezer shelves. Please make sure that your freezer is cold enough. Your freezer should be set at a temperature of 0 degrees F. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Occasionally the ice cube maker overfills causing the water to fall to the frezzer floor and leaking onto the ground, any suggestions on how to fix this?


Are you sure its the icemaker overflowing? if it is, you will have icycles on all the shelves and the food leading down to the floor of freezer. If you have NO icycles between bucket and floor, you have a clogged defrost drain problem.

If you do have icycles between bucket and floor, you will also have a big block of ice in your ice bucket. without personal inspection, i would advise replacing both the ice maker and the water valve(s)

Defroster drain leaks into the main compartment


The drain hole is plugged. Probably with ice now. Needs to be fully defrosted with a heat gun or hairdryer, be sure drain is free by pouring hot water into it and seeing it get to the pan below the machine. If this persists you need to troubleshoot the automatic defrost circuit. Could be bad defrost timer.

Water is leaking onto the floor from underneath. i bought a lot of vegetables yesterday and the refrigerator was really full - could that have caused it? what to do? thanks for any suggestions you have!


Hi,
The reason for your fridge to leak water on floor sounds like your defrost drain is frozen over. When the refrigerator is going into defrost it's draining through the front instead of the drain pan. You can remove the shelves and peel off the back cover and clear the drain by pouring hot water on the frozen drain hole. If you have a boaster of some sort you could try to squirt the hot water through the venting on the bottom of the panel. Another way to point a hair dryer on the drain hole. The best method is to remove the shelves and panel and make sure the drain is clear.
Thank you for contacting Fixya.com

Water leaking underneath refrigerator/water freezing in bottom of freezer


I'm dealing with the same problem right now with the same refrigerator. The cold water tank (for the front dispenser) has a hole in it that leaks every time someone dispenses water from the front door. You will find the water tank behind the top slide-out drawer in the fridge. The leaked water flows down one of the water tubes through a hole in the bottom of the fridge and onto the floor. I'll bet you have the same problem. Good Luck.
