Hi, It sounds like the defrost drain is plugged. You will need to remove the rear inside freezer panel and remove the ice covering the drain hole. Once the drain hole is clear, flush it out with hot water to make sure it is open. I use a baisting syreinge to flush them. Sometimes the dust from under the refrigerator gets in the drain and plugs them. I have also seen the drain tube under the refrigerator hanging down to low and blocked off where it goes into the drain pan.
Please let me know if this helps you at all or if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

Frigidaire FRS26ZNH frig is freezing water in the bottom of the freezer and is leaking water onto the floor.


Hi

The drain hole is clogged. Remove the food and do a complete defrost. Most of the time the blockage is caused by ice in drain line. If that does not fix the problem, the drain hose to evaporator is clogged. The drain line (TUBE-DRAIN) is part 64 in diagram below. Click on the picture to enlarge:

when the cold coil is freezing up this is caused by a failed defrost system ( a bad heater or terminator . or the aditive defrost control . it also will freez the drain in the back of the freezer and this will cause the water to end up on the floor . . i would defrost the frig and repl the terminator . the heate is usualy good . and if problem comes back then replace the a d c . // the a d c pt # 241508001 and the terminator 5303918214 . this is a very common problem .. mm hope this helped and thanks for using fix ya ..

It sounds like the freezer drain is plugged up. When the frig goes into the defrost stage it melts the frost biuldup on the evaporator and the melted frost goes down a drain that is behind the evaopator cover. When this dran is plugged the water has no place to go and over several defrost cyles will actually run into the bottom of the freezer section. When the defrost cycle is over and the frig starts cooling again, the water freezes in the bottom of the freezer.

WATER LEAK IN FREEZER POOLING AT BOTTOM & FREEZING THEN MELTING


The problem was indeed a clogged frost water drain. I had to pull the frig out from the wall (found an incredible amount of dust accummulation in the alcove), then remove the vertical metal and horizontal cardboard covers to expose the drain catchpan. The 1/2" rubber drain hose end was only about 1/8" above the pan pointing directly into it perpendicularly. This was not enough clearance. There was a plug (formed by dust and water) in the end of the hose that came out easily when I 'roto-rooted' it with a screwdriver. The water flowed easily after that, but I went ahead and trimmed about 3/8" off the end of the hose and pushed it back into its slot. Then I cleaned as much as I could. The prevention is to keep the area behind the frig cleaned!

Defrost Problem


there is a drain in the middle of the defrost water collector and it is probably blocked - usually with ice. dry ot the tray and put very hot water in to melt the ice. you may have to do several times. do this until water flows away freely
