SOURCE: ice in the bottom of frigidaire side by side frost proof freezer

take all the bottom shelves and baskets out of the freezer. look at the back wall of the freezer. youll see a block of ice in a metal pan looking part at the bottom of the rear panel. there is a hole in the bottom of that pan. thats the defrost drain. its clogged. use a hair dryer to get all the ice out then use hot water to flush out the drain hole.

Check your drain pan for water.If you see none than you have a clogged drain line in the freezer.Remove the back wall lower screws and any screws that will prevent you from getting the back freezer panel off,NOTE : this is in the freezer located on the back wall. You will see the drain behind this panel , if its clogged ,un clog it.

SOURCE: 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!

Either the drain hose is plugged up with ice and not dripping into evaporator tray, or the defrost unit needs to be replaced.

Frigidaire GLRSF266J side by side makes ice, but dispenser won't work, what can I do?


The part that holds the switch in the dispenser door may have allowed the paddle to no longer contact the switch correctly. Look for a discolored wire connector under the hinge cover on the freezer door. If it looks all in order the water solenoid located where the water line attaches to the fridge may be bad.

PLHS267ZA is leaking water from the bottom (freezer side)


I would look under the fridge for a drip pan that might be full, so when it defrost it overflows the pan and runs on the floor. If not that you must have a blockage somewhere in the drain line that runs to the drip pan. Take out the shelves and take off the plastic panels to access the drain and drain line, pour some warm water down the drain to unplug it.

You have two things causing this
1) the water valve for the i/m is seeping and not fully closing,with the i/m removed no water should come from the tube and the valve should be replaced(alos it were the from the im their would be ice build up from that tube all the way down to the very bottom)
2) this is the most prabable cause with the abense of ice build except at the bottom around the lowest drawer and that is the defrost drain is blocked,the drain can be found at the very bottom of the rear panel of the freezer and is blocked so instead of the defrost water draining it is pooling at the bottom then running out all over the floor
to clear the drain push a wire hanger through the tube till a small hole opens then flush it with hot water

Water from freezer pools at the bottom


The drain line for the evaporator is frozen shut. You have to thaw the drain line that is located behind the rear wall in the freezer side. It is at the very bottom and will require a hair dryer or lots of hot water.

Fridge on fritz


Did you check the motor and/or damper mechanism that directs cold freezer air into the refrigerator portion. If that is messed up the freezer is ok but fridge is ng. Also look at door seals for proper sealing.
