I bought my refrigerator in July 2011. For the last month I have found water on the floor in front of the grill. There is no water in the back. Also have found sheet of ice under the basket. Is there

It looks like your condensate drain is plugged behind the rear panel in back of the freezer. Remove the panel and pour hot water in the drain area. this will be messy and a lot of towels will be needed, but the drain will defrost. Do this until water flows down the drain. Most newer refrigerators do not have a removable drip tray. the tray is part of the compressor mounting area. Some still have a tray but it is bit hard to remove.

My Samsung SRL550DW keeps cutting out. If you turn the power off it restarts and works fine and then cuts out again after a few hours. Is this a main PCB problem. Prior to this happening the door chim

I have had the exact same issue and its not a samsung issue but any modern fridge with a defrost system in the freezer (fridge doesn't generally frost up as its not run at freezing temperatures.

You need to check a few things:
1. Clear the freezer draws out and clear any ice build up.
2. Be careful and unclip the first white plastic vent panel (hint: pull from the middle an inch or two then push the sides in so the tabs are pulled towards the middle and the panel pops out)
3. Unscrew and unclip the 2nd panel (holds the circulation fan) to view the freezer coils - you will need to unclip the power for the fan and the heating coil for the drip tray under the freezing coils.
4. This is where the issue usually is:

If the tray is full of ice then do the following. If not and you can poor water through the drain hole on the bottom, then the issue is a dead sensor or control board - seek professional advice or if your game, there are swap out kits you can buy.

So the drip tray is full of ice ? Unscrew the freezer coils from the back wall but DO NOT touch it any further in case you damage it. There should be some silver tape tape that holds the tray in place - remove it and then gently lift the coils up to allow the tray out. If its too full of ice, use a hair dryer or warm water to de-ice. Once the tray is out, defrost it completely and dry it - be careful not to damage the heating wires under the tray as this is used to deice it during a normal defrost cycle. Clear any remaining ice on the coils or along the back wall - Dry it well.

Usually the cause for the drip tray to freeze up is a blockage in the drain pipe that empties into the back of the fridge. Unscrew the back panel and you will see 2 soft plastic pipes drain water into a water tray. pull both off and clean/inspect. You will notice they pinch in the middle to stop air getting back in, but allows water to drip out. If they are blocked, they will back fill the internal drains and freeze, thus fooling the fridge into thinking it hasn't defrosted yet and not turning the compressor back on. (Since this ice is hidden at the back, it is the last to melt thus the freezer gets warmer waiting for the insulated ice near the drain to melt.

When I did my freezer, the water is dripping out slowly (it was cold) but once I removed the pipe, it emptied properly. inspection of the pipe showed dirt/insect blocking the pinched section of the pipe.

Reassemble the pieces in reverse order, ensuring the water was been dried with a cloth. My fridge/freezer hasn't skipped a beat since.

Condensation is forming on the glass door and dripping onto floor boards. How do we stop the condensation. It does say to empty drain tray but we cannot find it and instruction manual does not tell you...

The drain tray is under the fridge often times set back a little bit. Remove the kick plate by pulling from one side then the other side, strait forward till it pops off. The kick plate is a plate as close to the floor as you can get on the front side of the fridge going the entire width of the bottom of the fridge. Now get eye level with the underneath of the fridge. Center your view on the underneath of the fridge. The drain tray is right there. Pull it out, carefully as it is probably full of water, and dump the water out of it. Replace the drain tray and then replace the kick plate. Check the drain pan once a week or so and you should have no more water leaking on your floor. Hope this helps.

Galaxy fridge-water leaking under shutoff in house.water turned off at street.where/how do i proceed to locate problem?


Thanks for contacting

Check the hose under your fridge that drains condensation and such into a catch tray. Make sure the hose is draining properly.

Blow air through the tube to make sure it is not clogged. A coat hanger wire can be inserted to break up clogs. An alternative method is to use a bicycle pump to force air through the drain hole to remove any obstruction. Vacuum dust bunnies from under the fridge to allow free flow of the air. Most refrigerators periodically blow warm air across the condensation tray. The warm air dries the condensation in the tray.

Clogs are usually caused when dust, moisture and micro-organisms get together in the drain tube. Keep the dust vacuumed from the back and bottom of the fridge. Make sure the drain tube is firmly connected at all points. The drain tube can be flushed with chlorine bleach, rubbing alcohol or other anti-bacterial product. Product selection should be consistent with the tubing material.

I have searched some important instruction through net from a valuable soursse…it might be of your help…
Analyzing the likely source
STEP 1: Move the refrigerator out from the wall and look for the location of the leak. STEP 2: Check the side panels and the seals around the door for beads of "sweat." This could indicate a condensation problem. STEP 3: Check the floor. A puddle there could indicate a missing or cracked drip pan, or a leak in the water line that feeds your ice maker. STEP 4: Check for water seeping from the front of the freezer or the refrigerator. This could indicate your defrost drain is plugged or your ice maker is leaking. Fixing a condensation problem
STEP 1: Check that the doors shut correctly. Hold each door about halfway open, then let go. If the doors don't shut completely, adjust the screw legs on the front of the refrigerator so the unit tilts back a bit. With adjustable pliers, turn each leg one revolution clockwise. Recheck the doors and, if necessary, repeat the process until they shut securely. STEP 2: Inspect the door gaskets. Look for debris that may keep the doors from shutting. Also check for cracks or gaps in the gaskets that could allow the cold air to seep out. If you find debris, clean the gaskets with warm, soapy water. If you find cracks or gaps, you'll need to replace the gaskets (see How to Fix a Refrigerator That Cools Poorly). STEP 3: If your refrigerator is equipped with a door-frame heater that evaporates condensation, make sure the heater is turned on. The switch should be located with your other refrigerator controls. Fixing a drip-pan problem
STEP 1: Pull off the grill that runs along the bottom of your refrigerator. STEP 2: Locate the drip pan, using a flashlight if necessary. The pan should be sitting on top of a set of black condenser coils and directly below a drain tube that carries water from your freezer when it is in defrost mode. STEP 3: Place the drip pan in your sink and fill it with water to test for leaks. If it leaks, order a replacement from your appliance dealer. STEP 4: If the drip pan doesn't leak, clean it with warm, soapy water, then reinstall the pan and the refrigerator grill. Fixing a clogged defrost drain
STEP 1: Locate the defrost drain. It should be a round hole or a channel running under the vegetable and fruit bins in the refrigerator or along the floor of the freezer compartment. STEP 2: Inspect the drain for clogs and remove any debris. If necessary, use a small screwdriver to break up debris that's trapped in the drain hole. STEP 3: Fill a meat baster with hot water and force it through the drain to make sure the clog is gone. If the drain is operating properly, the hot water will fill the drip pan. Fixing a leaky ice maker
STEP 1: Pull the refrigerator away from the wall and locate the copper water-supply line. It runs from the house water line to the refrigerator water-supply valve. (To get to the supply valve, you may have to use a screwdriver or a nut driver and socket to remove your refrigerator's back access panel.) STEP 2: Inspect the copper supply line, the supply valve, and the plastic supply tube that runs from the other side of the supply valve to the back of the ice maker. STEP 3: If a connection is leaking, tighten it with an adjustable wrench. If either the copper supply line or the plastic supply tube is leaking, you need to replace it. STEP 4: Turn off the water supply. The valve may be under the kitchen sink or connected to a cold-water pipe in your basement. STEP 5: Remove the faulty line and take it to a hardware store to get an exact replacement. STEP 6: Install the new line, tighten the connections with the adjustable wrench and turn the water back on.

Tips & Warnings
To keep door gaskets clean and supple, wash them twice a year with warm, soapy water, then coat them with a light film of petroleum jelly.
Some refrigerators have an internal defrost drain that is meant to be serviced by a professional. If you can't find your drain, call a pro.
To prevent possible electrical shock, always unplug your refrigerator before working on it.
Put carpet scraps or another soft material under the front legs before pulling your refrigerator away from the wall. Otherwise, the legs could damage the flooring.

Sub zero 532 ice maker

When my repair tech came out, he showed me that the fill tube sometimes retracts toward the rear of the freezer. He simply pulled it forward with a pair of needle nose pliers until it rested in the delivery reservoir. This placement allows the detector to know when the tray is full and shut off; thus not overfilling the freezing tray and/or splashing additional water onto the freezer wall and into the ice cube drawer.
