I had the same problem, removed rear cover (15 screws) and found a drain slot under the conderser plugged with dust and grime. gently cleaned the slotted area out with a Q-tip, and the condensate is now following the proper flow into the tan and evaporator. It has been running for 2 hours with no drips!!

Water leaking out through the frot door


Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.

Nor-Lake walk-in cooler water leak


The evaporator drains into pan with a coil from the discharge line. The design is intented to sub-cool the liquid refrigertant as well as evaporate the condensation from the coil. Unfortunately the engineer started as career a shipping clerk and never received any further training.  There isn't enough heat or running time to evaporate the condensation from the coil.
The solution is fairly simple
A plastic tube  drains water out of the evaporator in the pan. You can extend the tube and add a defrost pan handled by your refrigeration wholesaler. Wire it so it is on whenever there is power to the unit.  This should get rid of the excess water. These pans are also used on some self contained coolers and freezers. They come in either 120 volts or 220 volts. kasgirls@tds.net

Tube running from AC unit to the house is completely encased in ice. Does this mean the unit is bad ? Or, does this mean there is a freon leak in the tubing ? And, is it cheaper to replace to unit or try...


You either have a refrigerant leak or a dirty inside coil or a slow running inside blower motor.
Set the thermostat for heat and run it until all the ice is thawed. Then check the incoming air side of the coil for lint and dirt. Check the fan motor for proper speed. If you have service gauges your low side pressure should be approximately 68 psi. If lower you have a leak.

2 year old kenmore elite water leaking in freezer area


Does this happen when unit is in a defrost?? If so, sounds like the drain line is clogged.The hose and pan are located under the unit.You can access this by removing the cardboard back cover.Find the drain line tube.I'm sure the drain opening at the evaporater is iced over.You will have to unplug the unit and keep the doors open to defrost.(Removing product in unit will decrease defrost time.) Maybe an hour to an hour and a half.Could be longer!! Try using a wet/dry vac to clear.
