Check the condensation tube (usually white plastic open ended PVC tube about an inch in diameter that sticks out of the unit). If it is full, this is where your clog is. This tube tends to accumulate mineral deposits over time. A one ounce shot of bleach should clear the jam in a few minutes. If not, try running a coat hanger down the tube to free the clog and add nother ounce of bleach.

Unfortunately this sounds like more than a blockage. If this was a blockage water would not drain, maybe fill in sink or dishwasher etc. If water is coming from walls probably means it is leaking from drain pipe in the wall. Which would mean opening wall to find leak.

BTU is leaking water from the inside.


Take the cover off the inside unit and look for the drip pan under the evaporator coil. It should have either one drain in the middle of the pan or a series of smaller drains along the back of the pan. The drain(s) is probably clogged up and causing the pan to overflow into your home. Also check the drain line on the outside wall where the refrigerant lines come through the wall for a blockage.

Sanipro xr is less than 6 months old been working fine but has recently become rather noisy. Sometimes goes off in the middle of the night for no reason.


Water pressure makes the unit kick on and off. Somehow water is draining back into the pump casing, check the flapper on the check valve inside the discharge elbow, it may not be closing properly or may be obstructed allowing waste water to drain back into the pump. Also check the flapper on the flush valve inside the toilet tank (water closet) the flapper may be leaking water into the bowl and from the bowl into the pump casing sitting behind. As far as making a loud noise, there could be a blockage on the drain pipe, blade or impeller. The discharge pipe may be loose, not clamped against the wall and is rattling against the wall when in use.

JDC2389GES side by side fridge Water is leaking inside the freezer and pooling at the bottom.


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
Actually the leaking water is from the evaporator coil unit....(it is located at the back wall or underneath the freezer compartment). Under normal conditions,Self-defrost refrigerators usually dispose the water generated during the defrost cycle through a tube or channel that directs the water a pan (Known as Drip pan), commonly below the refrigerator unit....
The channel or tube is clogged and the water is leaking to the refrigerator/freezer unit, so you need to clear that blockage/contamination....Once the blockage is removed, the generated water will move through that channel/tube directly to the drip pan and there will no water on the floor in the refrigerator/freezer compartment. This is all you need to do....

THE AIR CONDITIONER LEAKS WATER FROM THE FRONT OF THE UNIT.


Look for the drain line coming out of the unit typically in the bottom. Clear out this drain line with a vacuum or water hose. It should begin to drain and stop leaking.

If the leaking continues, you may have a cracked drain pan or severe drain blockage.

Bottom freezer is leaking water. Water seems to


You have a clogged defrost drain. The problem is fixed by unplugging unit from wall, open both doors, blow fan for 24 hours to SAFELY remove the ice covering the drain hole. If you use ANY other method, you may regret it. Once ice is melted, remove debris that is likely blocking the small drain hole, if no debris in drain pan, direct some high pressure air down the drain to block the debris INSIDE the tubing. Furthermore, its a good idea to make the drain hole in the drain pan larger, as sometimes a bubble of water can freeze in the drain hole, and ice could be the cause of your blockage from that bubble.

Our Westinghouse refrigerator RP241T leaks out the bottom


The water that is produced during a refrigerator's defrost cycle drains into a catch basin behind the interior wall of the unit. The water then drains into a tube which carries the water underneath the refrigerator to a drain pan, where it is evaporated by heat from the coils and the compressor. You should be able to see this tube at the back of the refrigerator.

If any part of this drain system gets blocked, the water is diverted before it reaches the drain pan. It sounds like you have such a blockage. In some refrigerators, you can pull this tube loose at the point where it connects with the catch basin. Blow into the tube and see if it is open. If it is, the blockage is likely in the catch basin inside.

Water drips inside our refridgerator . it comes from a point where the cold air comes in from the back wall


Take a large clear bowl half full with water and place it on the top center of the unit. This will help you to level the unit on all axises.This is probably your situation because during the defrost cycle the water that remains is supposed to go through a small hose and be evaporated by the warm coils in the rear.
