The drain tube is frozen and when the defrost cycle runs it melts all the ice and can't drain. Try laying a towel in the bottom of the freezer and slowly pouring warm water in it at the drain. This should un plug the drain. Be patient because this takes a while. To avoid all the water you can also use a hair dryer to defrost the problem drain. Hope this helps. Oh and please rate our solutions if you feel they have helped. Thanks cj2176.

Samsung RS2630sh. Drain line Freezes shut. Water drains to bottom of freezer and freezes there. Cooling coils are not collecting ice. Drain line has been cleaned. Why does it keep freezing shut?


If water still collecting and freezing at freezer bottom then drain line is not cleared and still obstructing the normal flow of water downward.

How do I repair water leaking in the bottom of the freezer on Maytag model MBF2258XEW


Check your door seals. The air gets in, the moisture freezes then the defrost cycle turns it into water.

We have got water coming out at the bottom of the freezer of our fridgidair FRC170FF how do i fix it?


1. Your freezer may be not cold enough so water does not freeze.
2. Your freezer may leak so warm air goes into the freezer and keep the temperature higher than freezing temperature.

Hi there,
Where exactly is it freezing? Do you mean it's freezing in the line? Have you tried getting rid of perishables and shutting it off over night to allow for a defrost?

Water leaking to bottom of freezer


ok you have a blocked freezer drain. The best thing to use to clear this is 'curtain wire (the plastic coated wire you use to hold up net curtains). Ok you need to find the drain hole in the "small tray on the back wall inside that fills and freezes and then the water is overflowing at this point to the bottom of freezer" you want to gentley feed the curtain wire down the hole untill the water drains down there. If you can't get the wire down you may need to turn the unit off to defrost as it could be frozen solid with ice. cheers

Top of the freezer will freeze but bottom want


Could be same as problem I just fixed.
Remove back panel inside freezer and
1. check fan operation
2. check for ice/water at bottom of the hidden section. There should be a drain hole, which may be blocked by ice. Fix by turning off and pouring boiling water in there until blockage is fixed

Water puddling in bottom of freezer and freezing


the drain in the back of the freezer is probably full of ice. you need to pull out panel and use heat from a blow dryer to unplug the drain. then take a small gauge copper wire long enough to extend into the drain a couple of inches and loop it around the black heating element then when it goes yhrough defrost it should keep this from reaccuring
