Not draining away from where? There is probably a plugged drain hole or hose somewhere.

My bush BFFF55173 keeps generating a pool of water on the bottom shelf? Does anyone have the same problem?

Freezer /fridge water/ice in fridge and or freezer

Usually due to CONDENSATION due to bad door seals or a plugged evaporator drain line? Can use a soft flexable tubing and very hot water to clean it out. Bad door seals usually need replacement, but u can use a blow dryer and something to pry it closer to the door wall while blowing hot air on to it. To create a seal, to test for bad door seals place a dollar bill in between the door and wall of fridge where it closes. Then slide out the dollar bill with door closed. It should offer some resistance and not be easy to pull out.
Most all fridges have a drain. Look inside your fridge for a "V" shaped channel with a small hole. This hole leads to a tube and a small pan which sits on top of your refrigerator's compressor. The defrost cycle causes water to run into the channel, down the tube, and then it generally evaporates with the heat of the hot condenser/compressor.
However, if that tube is clogged with food crumbs, particles , debris etc, you will have to clear it to get back to a normal mode of operation. A toothpick, pipecleaner, straw or a cotton bud can often do the trick.
Even a frost free freezer will still ice up at times in the areas away from the heated defrost area and the drain line can freeze. This icing causes the pipe work to the compressor to ice over or sweat and cause a puddle. Or if the drainage has frozen over, it will need to be de-iced. ( usually the line is under the freezer bottom plate covering. Towards the back of the unit) And there is another inside the fridge area also.
Give the freezer a good overnight defrost until it's totally clear of ice in addition to making sure the drain is clear to the pan at the back and then restart the freezer.

I have a bush fridgefreezer, i have a problem with water not draining down the drain at the bottom of the fridge compartment. it then floods under the do i stop that from happening, its und

The water is supposed to drain from the coil area every time the fridge goes through a defrost cycle to get ice off the fins. The water should drain out into an evaporating tray adjacent to the motor/pump unit. Obviously it is not draining, so when the freezer freezes again the remaining water freezes and eventually creates a mini glacier in the fridge which floods every defrost cycle. The culprit is accumulation of years of gunk in the drain tray or drain tube or a little funnel like apparatus that feeds into the evap. tray. The fix is as follows: Shut the fridge off, unplug it and gain acces to the cooling fins/drip tray area. (I found a good video that explains the process sep by step for the kenmore freezer down type. I would link it but dont have a clue how to do that) . Carefully chip away at the ice with a wooden spatula -- not a crow bar. When most of the ice is gone pour hot water to melt what is left and get it flowing down to the evap tray. You may send too much water down there but such is life. Clean up the water that has run all over the kitchen. Dry out the fridge with a good table clothe and put it back together. Your fridge/ freezer will work now, but it will ice up again. Time for part 2 of the fix. Pull the fridge out, remove the back panel, and with the aid of a light follow up from the evap tray and find the little funnel affair. Pull it off and fill the sink with warm soapy water and use a bottle brush to scrub that rubber thingy. It is unreal how much crud gets stuck in there over the years. If I had had access to a new rubber drain piece I would have gladly thrown the old one out skipped the scrubbing. At this point the fridge is as fixed as it is going to get. It is unreal how many fridges are thrown out over this flooding issue and the fix is quite easy as you will see.

Find the water drain hole/pipe and clean it thoroughly with a pipe cleaner or other softish flexible rod. That should allow the water to drain away. Make sure back of the unit is clear and clean so water drains and evaporates off properly.

Pooling of water in fridge compartment of my Neff fridge/freezer

The defrost drain is clogged. Defrost drains usually get there clog right behind the back freezer panel. Remove this to get to the defrost drain and remove all built up ice and clear the drain and you should be fine. Hope this helps.

Water dripping within the fridge

Hi, The defrost drain behind the rear freezer panel is plugged. Remove the rear panel and clear the ice away from the drain. Then you will need to flush the drain hole with hot water to make sure it is open.
Some models require an after market drain heat kit.
Please get me your model # and I can look this up to let you know if you need that heat kit.

The hole that drains water away at back of fridge is blocked

Ok you need to defrost this unit eg unplug and leave all doors open for 48 hours then get some "flexy curtain wire (white plastic coated, used for hanging net curtains) this wire is perfect for getting up or down the fridge drain.

Please rate my advice
