I have water on the inside of my refrigerator under a crisper drawer, everything I have read says freezer drain is probably clogged, I dont know where to clean the freezer drain out? I have the water line on the back and another line ( I am assuming is the freezer drain) do I take it apart at the top or bottom?

Re: Water on the inside floor of refrigerator
The freezer line will be the one that dumps water into a tray next to compressor where it evaporates.You need to take off the back panel of the freezer compartment to access the freezer drain. It will be a hole located below the coils and may be clogged with food matter and/or ice. A vacuum cleaner works great for this. Hope this helps

I'm sorry to say that it sound as though your door gasket may no longer be sealing correctly.
For me, it's simply a task of getting a replacement gasket for that make and model.
To remove the old one you would, simply, peel the inside of the gasket toward the outside of the edge of the door revealing the mounting screws. Remove these screws all the way around and replace with the new one in the same fashion...
The reason that I recommend this is that humid air outside of the refrigerator can seep past a worn gasket and condense on the inside surfaces making its way to the bottom and into those drawers.
This is not a major repair and also a very common problem. You will need to turn unit off and remove everything from inside the freezer. After this remove the back panel of the freezer and you will see ice built up at the bottom of the coils. You will have to remove all this ice and clear the defrost drain trough and tube. After the ice is removed you will see the defrost drain located about midways. Use a hair dryer to melt this then take a cup of very very very hot water and pour a little in the tube. Let stand for 5 minutes then dry it up real good and repeat. Do this till the drain clears and water flows freely. Then reassemble and you are good to go.
Unplug the power to the Fridge, take the items out of the freezer.
There is a bottom tray that's inside the freezer that has 2 or 4
screws, remove the screws that holds the floor to the freezer and lift
it out. You will probably see a sheet of ice on the bottom of the
freezer. You may have to take off the back cover which is inside the
freezer, it covers the evaporator. Then you will want to defrost the
ice, do not use a heat gun it will melt the inside of the freezer. Best
way to thaw it is leave the power off and melt it with hot water (not
boiling). Either wet vac out the water as it melts or use a hand towel
to mop it up. Sometimes a turkey baster will work to squeegee it out.
There is a drain hole in the back that you will see as the ice begins
to melt. That needs to be clear and the only way to clear it is to
cover it with hot water. You will know that it clears and working when
you see the water drain out thru the drain hole in the back of the
inside of the freezer. By the way the drain drains thru a pipe thru a
tray that's on top of your compressor. That's what heats it and makes
it evaporate. Be advised that as you see that it is clearing, you can
stop dumping water down there as some may get on the floor as the pan
may overflow and dump water on the floor. If that happens, just mop up
the water from the floor. Now put it back together again and plug it
back in and you should have no further problems.
sounds like a drain clog in the freezer compartment above. remove the freezer rear panel and totally defrost the evaporator area, directly under the evap you see( under all taht ice) a small drain hole that has become frozen over, try defrosting with either a hair dryer( not a heat gun too much heat youl melt everything) or by pouring hot water donw the drain until you get a free flow of water down the tube. after its clear reassemble and you should be fine
water under the crisper doors is pretty common, all you have to do is raise the front legs of the refrigerator, Refrigerators have a heater in them that keep everything from freezing, if it wasnt for the heater then it would just be a freezer, now alot of these samsungs have 2 evaps, so if you get a warm fridge, its prob. because a sensor is out or the heater is out and there is ice buildup inside the unit preventing either the fan from turning, or just blocking air flow, but for the water, just raise the front legs and there is a drain in the back that it will go into from now on
