Coil freezing is often a symptom of low freon. You might have a pin hole leak, and it's not a DIY job.

Most all refrigerators have a condensation pan, if not you would have noticed a small river, or a rotting floor.

My Maytag refrigerator is leaking water from under it. Model MFI2569VEM


Just how old your fridge is I don' t know. But is your defrost timer working on your freezer. It should defrost at least once a day. You may want to check out the drain on the bottom of the fridge also. It may be partly clogged up. Then newer models have the coils go over the pan to help evaperate the water.

There was standing water in the bottom of my Roper refrigerator under the crisper drawers. The drain pan under the fridge was dry. I cleaned up the water and vaccumed under the bottom of the fridge. ...


Hello,

That water is from the melting frost of the automatic defrost cycle. Their is drain in the freezer behind the back wall under the evaperator coil that is blocked, so instead of defrost water draining it's pooling in the freezer.
The way to clear the drain is remove back plate and remove all ice build up and GENTLY make a small hole in drain through then totally flush w/warm water.
The exact location of drain is under the coil behind back freezer plate in the center

Good luck

I hope this helps

My model number 2811 has ice build up on the right hand side of the freezer. the service manuals indicate i need to pull the "cal rod heater down to make contact with the evaporator assembly and silicone...


Diagrams here : http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Sub-zero-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/Model-2811/3054/0161000?searchedModel=2811&blt=05

These are the best I can Do with the Diagrams but I can explane what is going on, and possible soloutions.

Your defrost drain is mostlikeley frozen. This is located on the right hand side, just inside the metal cover. When you remove the meteal cover (((evaperator cover or water pan))) you will see the hole on the right.

Since this is cloged then the water stays in the cover or pan and freezes after the defost cycle.

after you remove the cover you will see the evaperator (( aluminum tubing with fins))) and the heater ((( Black Rod )))

When your machine gose into defrost about every 8 hrs, this heater melts the ice off the evaperator((( Hence Frost Free ))) and the water goest into the (((( evaperator cover or pan ))) and flows to the defrost drain hole to a pan under the machine.


They make a after market heater for the drain... it is a pain to install.

First I would try to defrost the drain by poring war water down it and verifying it goes into the pan at the bottome of the machine.

When your done you will need to silicone around the (((cover / pan))) where it covers the defrost drain hole.


Good Luck

Model CTX18GAZBRWW - (Hotpoint) no-frost - freezer on top Water collects under the vegetable drawers and must be removed every day.


Something to try....on the back wall of the fridge nearer to the top is a little cup like part sticking out. There is water in it but it usually runs down an attached tube inside back wall and ends up under the fridge and gets evaporated. If that tube or the little cup thing is plugged then it will drip in the fridge and collect on the inside bottom of the fridge. So the trick is to clean them out. Check it out ...may solve the problem.

Water on floor probably from cloged line leading to evaperation p


Look under the freezer bottom drawer for ice.
If ice is there your defrost drain line is frozen closed.
It is located on the back wall of the freezer down low.
Turn off the fridge. Use a hair dryer to melt the ice at the drain hole.
The ice under the drawer can be broken with a hammer and removed.

We were able to fix the freezer water leak. We unscrewed the false freezer floor and the inside back panel. Ice had accumulated on the freezer floor and the defrosting drain was frozen. We removed the ice by using a blow dryer then poured boiling hot water onto the frozen drain hole. The frozen water in the drain pipe hole eventually melted and the water released into the defrosting drip pan at the bottom of the refrigerator. Problem solved. We no longer have water leaking into the refrigerator.
