You have a clogged defrost drain tube, beneath the freezer evaporator (remove the back wall of the freezer compartment) there is a drip tray with a hole in it, the hole leads to the defrost drain tube- take a turkey baster and flush the drain with warm water until you hear it pour into the pan beneath the machine...

Ice build up under vegetable and fruit bins


Pull the bins out. Just above them is a channel with a hole in the middle. Push a drinking straw in the hole to clear the drain. The water will drain away instead of dripping under the veg bins.

Mw Daewoo fridge freezer FRS-20321BE is leaking water copiously from the refrigerator I cannot see any source for this but puddles form and flow internally under the veg box. Help!


All depends on how much water is collecting. A lot of water indicated a leak from the ice maker. A small amount and it's probably a clogged condensate drain. Here's a YouTube video on a different brand showing a clogged drain, your may be similar (or not), but it might give you an idea as to where to look. Refrigerator dripping water inside FIX

Do you have a thin layer of ice in bottom of freezer? If so, its a clogged drain - drain located "behind" back wall in "freezer" side (bottom).
If not, may be a broken or leaky water line or water valve - best serviced by an appliance repair technician... GL

Sounds like the drainage hole is blocked with ice, i normally take the back cover off the freezer and at the bottom you will see a build up of ice at the bottom, turn freezer off and carefully remove as much ice as you can, then pour some boiling water over the excess ice and in the middle you will see a drain hole make sure water then freely flows down drain hole. Other than that you could try switching your freezer off for 24 hours to clear ice.

Water leaked from below refridgerator. Drip pan was not full. where woudl water come form and why? Unit is not eve 1 year old. mdel # KSCS 25 FVss


The evaporator coil is in the freezer. When it goes into defrost, that water should go down a drain in the freezer into the drain pan. Open the freezer door and see if there is any ice in the very bottom of the freezer compartment. If so, then the drain may be clogged and will have to be cleared. It is necessary to remove all of the racks and baskets to get to the sheet metal that covers the coil. Remove that panel to get to the evap coil and look below it to find the drain. It may be necessary to use a hair dryer to CAREFULLY melt any ice. Be careful not to melt the plastic liner. When you think you have the drain cleared, check it with a large glass of hot water.
If there is no ice in the bottom of the freezer, take the grill off the bottom of the fridge to see if there are any leaks under the fridge.
Could also be a pin hole leak in the water supply line to the fridge.

Refrigerator is leaking/dripping clear water, but the ice maker lines have no leaks and it appears to be coming for the middle of bottom of the box somewhere.


You may have a leak from the water supply line that is attached to the fridge from the house hold line near the bottom right corner of the fridge.

I replaced my "entire" ice cube maker (tube,hoses,water pump, ice maker) and it still pooled water at the bottom. I removed the back panel in the freezer and noticed the ciols go through a defrost cycle and water forms in tray under coils. I removed the lower panel on rear of fridge -and found a drain hose near the water solenoid/pump. I blew compressed air into the hose and hopefully unblocked it so it can drain into the pan not the freezer.
