Did you notice any moisture on the main cabinet at the area the doors seal against? Some models have a heater imbedded in the cabinet edge at the door seal to keep the metal cabinet from sweating much like a glass does when filled with water and ice cubes. If the heater is not on the metal sweats and leaks down to the floor. Some refrigerators have an option switch called and energy saver that can turn that heater on or off. Off is OK for winter but needs to be on in humid weather if house is not air conditioned. Heater could also be burned out (bad).

SOURCE: 10 yr old GE side by side: freezer is leaking

Your drain is frozen up and so every time unit goes into defrost the water refreezes in the freezer's bottom. You either have to shut fridge off completely and let it dethaw or use hot water and an ice pick to hurry up the process. The drain is located in the very back of freezer. You will have to pull out the bottom drawer to see it. Good luck

I have a side by side Kenmore refrigerator model #363-9562510. Water leaks from the bottom right corner of the freezer door from a small round cut out hole. This is the door that has the ice and water...


couple of things to check if you have a dispenser on this model there is a hose that goes up into the bottom of the freezer door you need to remove bottom kick plate and take a look at this...also if no water from that hose and its actually coming from the door you could have a ruptured line in the door itself.... next make sure the water is not actually coming from the freezer compartment as the drain in the freezer could be clooged and leaking over on defrost mode and out door...
hope this helps good luck...

I have an Amana BRD18V1 or V2, bottom freezer. About every two weeks it leaks water on the floor on the right hand side and i have to defrost the bottom part to get about an inch of ice out. I trust...


I assume you mean water leaking on floor of bottom freezer? There should be a small hole in floor in back to drain defrosted water down to pan under unit. This line might be clogged with food or frozen water. Carefully pour some hot/boiling water down tube to clear. You should see it empty into pan under unit where fan evaporates it.

My Maytag side-by-side refrigerator/freezer Leak


There is a pan and drain hose under the freezer coil that is there to catch any water when the freezer goes into defrost. I feel strongly that is where you will find your leak.
I hope this helps.

Freezer door leaking alot of water on floor no ice on door


This really sounds like a plugged drain. When the unit goes into defrost the water should run down the drain into the drain pan...when the drain is plugged it will run over and down to the bottom of the freezer thus leaking out the bottom of the door and onto the floor. You will need to take everything out of the freezer and remove the screws that hold the back panel on break out the ice at the bottom and use hot water to pour down the drain to clear it.....also if you have a small hose to shove down the drain that will help out alot.

Check and make sure you defrost drain in the freezer isn't frozen. The water may be coming from the bottom of the freezer inside. When the heater comes on to defrost the evaporator, the water drips in to a small hole in the back bottom of the freezer inside. If the drain freezes, the water runs out into the freezer on the bottom and eventually onto the floor in front of the freezer door. It will eventually create a gap and let moisture into the freezer and may show up in the refrigerator section as condensation. Remove the ice build up including the alluminum drain pan area where the drain is located. Pour hot water into the drain to defrost it. You may have to remove the back of the freezer wall on the bottom to get better access. If the water goes down the drain, its clear. If you need a part for your refrigerator, please email me on ebay under user name themackshack. Good luck! , Mack
