Water leaking on the floor from freezer side.

Water leaks from refrigerator from the freezer side onto the floor. I have to use a hair dryer to break up the ice formation on the bottom of the freezer and remove the ice to keep the problem from occurring. Lasts about 2 days and then I have to do it again.

SOURCE: water leaking onto floor

Angels, 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 baster of some sort you could try to squirt the hot water through the venting on the bottom of the panel. Another way to 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. Catriver..post back.

SOURCE: Kenmore Coldspot w/Ice Maker Not Making Ice

hi LOP7,
In most cases you can easily solve this problem.
step one would be to make sure your freezer is getting cold enough. If you have icecream in your freezer is it frozen solid or is it soft. Most icemakers cycle around 0 degrees and if your freezer is not getting to 0 then it will not cycle and it will not make ice.
Step two would be to make sure you icemake is cycling. To do this simply lift the little shut off arm on your icemaker and wait about an hour then go back to the icemaker and drop the arm down. The icemaker should start going through a cycle. You should notice the arm slowly begin to raise and the ice dispencer fingers will begin to turn. Then you will hear it call for water. You may hear a humm.
If the freezer is cold enough and the icemaker is cycling that only leaves the inlet valve. replace the valve and enjoy the ice.
If the freezer is cold enought and the icemaker does not cycle, then you have a bad icemaker. Simply replace the icemaker and viola.
Third if the freezer is not cold enought 0 defrees. Then you may have a defrost problem. In this case post more info and I will be happy to help. Good luck mca0824@aol.com

I had the same problem and discovered that the water control valve was not shutting off completely between cycles. The water seeping through the valve was freezing in the water inlet tube. I replaced the water control valve for the icemaker and solved the problem.

Ice forming on bottom of freezer with water leaking out from under


I'm guessing the drain from the freezer defrost pan (below the freezer coil) is clogged and overflowing into the bottom of the box. You'll have to turn off an defrost the freezer, then remove the sheet metal on the back to expose the coil. Try pouring some water into the drain pan and if it backs up, use a fine wire like a sewer snake to clean it out.

I have a Maytag side by side and water is leaking on the floor and I have a big build of ice on the bottom of the freezer. Can you tell me how to fix it?


Unplug the refrigerator.
Remove the food and shelves from the freezer side.
Carefully break up and dispose of the visible ice. There is a drain pan on the lower rear of the freezer. Defrost the ice in this pan with a hair dryer.
Once the ice is out of the pan the drain hole that goes through the bottom of the pan must also be defrosted.
After the drain hole is defrosted pour a mixture of 1/4 cup bleach and 1 and 3/4 cups hot water through the drain hole.

The defrost drain hole in the small tray is frozen over. Turn off the refrigerator. Remove the shelves and bins. Carefully break up the visible ice and dispose of it.
Use a hair dryer to defrost the drain hole. It will be a slow process. Be patient.

Yes. Your defrost drain hole in the lower rear of the freezer is frozen over with ice. Turn off the fridge. Remove the shelves and bins from the freezer side. Break up any ice on the floor of the freezer and dispose of it. Use a hair dryer to melt the ice over the drain hole in the rear portion of the freezer. Once it is clear pour a 1/4 cup of bleach into the drain hole.

Water from freezer pools at the bottom


The drain line for the evaporator is frozen shut. You have to thaw the drain line that is located behind the rear wall in the freezer side. It is at the very bottom and will require a hair dryer or lots of hot water.

Freezer leaks water even after water supply turned off


Remove the food from the lower portion of the freezer and remove the 2 screws which hold the rear freezer panel on . Remove the panel and use a hair dryer to defrost the ice built up over the drain . Once you see the black drain hole , concentrate on defrosting the hole . Once defrosted , the ice water will drain into the hole . I would use a small hose inserted into the drain and blow thru , to remove any debris built up inside the drain . Reinstall the panel and food .

Water is leaking from the freezer to thge floor. I is a side by side Maytag refrigerator


I had a simular problem - it is EASY to fix once you know what it is. "They" don't tell you that you should clean out the drain once a year..."they" would rather you call a repair man. Empty out the freezer side and remove the bottom panel inside the freezer. If you don't know how to do this google your fridge type and model number and you should be able to find directions to do so. In the very bottom is a drain that can get clogged with ice. Using a hair dryer and hot/warm water melt and gently break away all the ice. Poor hot/warm water over it till completely thawed out. What is supposed to happen with this drain is moisture is supposed to go to a pan under the fridge and evaporate. When it is clogged the water spills out onto the floor. If I can do this anyone can. I was about 50 years old and a woman when I first did this.

Model number f45zr24jw type 7 water filling up at bottem of freezer looks like it is comming from vent at bottom of freezer back wall filles up leaks out onto floor were is water comming from.


water is coming from the evaporator coil durring the defrost cycle and it must drain down into the small hose in the pan where the ice is , turn the unit off to defrost with a hair dryer of you can wait it out , after defrosting the ice puddle , pour a cup of bleach in it and snake it out with a stiff wire or similar. this should clear your clogged primary evaporator drain and stop the water leak.
