Defrost the fridge, clean it, and get it running again. You may have a seal leak letting in air with moisture that is becoming condensation under the freezer wall. This causes it to drip in the middle.

Why is it leaking water onto top shelf


Most modern fridges have an automatic defrost that works by draining into a sort of funnel above the back of the top shelf.
The funnel is connected through the back of the fridge to a rubber drain tube that goes down the outside of the back to a heated evaporation tray under the fridge,
The hose and/or funnel can get clogged with disgusting yucky stuff, and the water spills over the top of the funnel onto the top shelf.
The fix is to clean all the bits. It's usually no big deal to take apart.
I have resorted to blowing through the tube from the bottom end and then cleaning up the mess, and brushing my teeth. Quite revolting but, that's the price I paid to become an expert.

How do I fix water quickly leaking in vegetable tray in bottom of refrigerator


normally there is a drain hole at the back of the inside of the fridge, probably in the middle of the plastic to the bottom shelf, it might have a little prodder/plastic stick in it. This hole needs to be clear and it does get clogged up, clean it out and this should cure the problem. It is there so any water/condensation can be collected onto a plate that is fitted on top of the motor and it can be evaporated.

Water collecting inside refrigerator


At the back is a little channel with a hole in that drains to the outside of the fridge. Remove the drawers and shelf and blow through the hole with a drinking straw.

Water leak on floor


Typically on this model the drain hole Under the evaporator cover gets clogged. Remove the cover off the rear of the refrigerator and pour hot water into the drain until it goes down quickly. To remove the cover u will have to remove all the freezer shelves and the icemaker. Remove the covers screw and u should see that at the bottom u will have a block of ice down below. The refer goes onto defrost every couple days and will leak the melted ice onto the floor

Water is leaking onto top shelves of unit


Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today. Your drain line is most likley frozen. You need to remove the shelfs from the freezer and the bottom slide out panel. Remove the screws holding down the plastic bottom piece in the freezer then remove the back panel in the freezer. Remove any ice buildup you can. The drain is in the middle under the evaporator. DONT TOUCH the evaporator. Use boiling water and pour it in the back untill the drain runs free.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..

I have a whirlpool imperial refrigerator; freezer on top; with icemaker....water is leaking from the freezer section down onto top shelf in refrigerator, near back, any help??


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
Actually the leaking water is from the evaporator coil unit.... 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 unit, so you need to clear that 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 top shelf in the refrigerator compartment. This is all you need to do....


Best of Luck,


Please do Rate the solution, if you feel that this helps you,

Water is leaking onto top shelf of fridge. It is a top freezer.


Sounds like you have a frozen drain in the freezer. You can remove the back panel of the freezer and take a turkey baster and run hot water down the drain line to clear it. Once its cleared you will want to dump an additional cup of water down to make sure that its clear. This will stop the defrost tray from overflowing when the unit goes into defrost. This is where the water is coming from.
Hope this helps _MJ_

Leaks water inside, under the veg bins. I am sponging it out daily. Sometimes leaks onto the middle shelf and will freeze up a nice puddle.


there is a tube on some of these model that goes through the back of the fridge and onto the bottom. It is usually up high (if not under the crisper s). If its close to the freezer compartment may have Ice blocking it. If its up high and behind a ceiling cover it could have dirt and gunk stopping it up. try a soda straw and push it in the open part of the hole. see if you get anything out. You say it freezes on the shelf in the fridge compartment (Im betting on Ice blocking the hole because this is way too cold for a refrigerator with veggies. Right?)

Warm water set inside fro a few minutes to hours with the door open or a hair dryer running in it for a few minutes may defrost it and solve the problem then it may come back if there is too much air from the freezer or the thermostat is keeping it running too long.

Hope this helps and if so please rate me accordingly and good luck
