Look under the unit and replace the condensatin pan back in place. This should stop the leaking onto your carpet.

Why does kenmore side by side model 596.50004100 leak water from bottom?


1. there is a condensation pan under refrigerators, pull front bottom grill off & you should see pan. if pan is full it will overflow, pull forward to remove & empty. also check to see if something spilled in bottom of fridge & is running into drain hole into pan. most of the time condensation is so slow that it will evaporate before the pan fills up, but I've had them fill up on me in the past, not too often though.

2. if fridge is equipped with ice maker & clod water dispenser, connections on bottom back side could be leaking ( not likely, unless they have been disturbed).

there is not much else that it could be unless it is not the fridge & is coming from some where else & running under the fridge.

Water collecting in the pan underneath the fridge.


it should do this but the water should evaporate from the heat from the condenser and compressor,when the machine goes into defrost a heater comes on and melts all the frost off of the coil,the water drains down into the pan where the water will evaporate,when was the last time you cleaned out the condenser coil?remove the front bottom kick panel and check the coil,if it's filled with dust it has to be cleaned out at least once a year especially if you have a cat or dog,then pull out the machine unplug it or shut off the control and remove the bottom back panel,the easiest way to do this is to vac up as much dust as you can with a shop vac,then set it for blow by putting the hose on the other end of the shop vac and blow the dust out of the coil,you can buy a condenser brush that will remove dust thats stuck inside the coil but the shop vac works great,through the condenser this is how the heat escapes out of the machine,also clean off the fan motor in the rear,also there are plastic water lines that come out of the water valve that could be cracked going to the ice maker and water dispenser or the valve itself could be cracked causing this problem or the pan could have a crack in it,very unusual for the pan to overflow,when you're done cleaning it plug it back in,make sure the fan is running fine and have someone fill a cup of water and check the plastic lines coming from the valve to see if it leaks,pull out the pan and check it for cracks,fill it up at the sink and check it,if everything looks good you can shut off the water valve that goes to the fridge for a few days and keep an eye on the pan,like i say it's unusual for the pan to overflow just from the defrost water,if the water is evaporating with the water shut off then you have a crack in one of the water lines going to the ice maker or dispenser

My Danby 5070 is leaking water eventhough the resevoir is not filled. My carpet is soaked and the water is a rusty colored. Suggestions?


This probably means the condensation pan is rusted out and the condensation is dripping through the bottom of the pan. The pan will have to be replaced. Sorry this is probably not just real good news to hear. Hope this helps is some way.

Water is pooling under the veg/fruit drawers..cant tell where its from. Freezer temp is uneffected, temp appears fine, no condensation anywhere on refrig or contents...The first I noticed it was a week...


Your freezer goes through a defrost cycle and drains the melted ice ,somewhere the drain is clogged or iced up .Look for a little hole or hose coming into drain pan underneath and trace up.Might have to take back off.

Refrigerator ge profile model TFH27PR water leaking onto floor


Hi this problem could arise due to various reasons so lets find out what could it be the cause.

1)In the back of your freezer compartment is the drain hole. It's very common in GE for the drain to freeze up. With the drain hole plugged up, your freezer will continue to defrost the evaporator, but not the water in the drain hole. So the water builds and freezes, builds and freezes until it eventually overflows into the air diffuser for the fridge causing the leaky fridge problem."Heat Probe" that can be installed.This will prevent water from freezing up in the drain hole allowing it to drain as designed

2)Inspect the door seals and the sides of the refrigerator around the doors. If you see any beads of water or moisture, then the door seals may be failing to create an air tight seal which causes the cold air from the refrigerator to escape and form condensation around the doors. Sometimes you can solve this problem by applying a light film of gasket lubricant to the existing seals or just cleaning them of any debris with a warm soapy rag. If they still don't seal well after you apply lubricant, or clean them, you may need to replace the entire seal assembly.

3) If the water is coming from the freezer but you think that the defrost drain pipe is clear, then it may be coming from the ice maker. Check the ice maker for cracks in the unit's body or a misalignment of the water supply line. Make sure that the water supply spout in the freezer lines up with the ice maker's water supply cup.

4)Check the ice maker copper water supply line, your ice maker water filter, and the plastic ice maker water supply tube for any cracks, splits or connection leaks. If you find any leaks, remove the leaking part and obtain a replacement at the hardware store.

5)Your leaking refrigerator may just have a cracked or damaged drain pan. Your fridge regularly drains water into this pan to prevent water pooling in the fridge itself. Evaporation takes care of the rest. Look underneath your fridge where the drain pan sits and pull it out for inspection. If it has a crack or is otherwise damaged, contact the appropriate retailer about getting a replacement as soon as possible.

6)If your leaking refrigerator is draining inside as opposed to onto your floor, you're probably dealing with a clogged defrost drain. Your fridge is constantly producing condensation inside the freezer, and that condensation drips down the defrost drain into a drain pan underneath the unit. This defrost drain can become clogged with debris or, more often, it freezes shut. Look in your refrigerator manual to locate your defrost drain, and take the appropriate steps to unclog it (inundating your drain with warm water will often do the trick).

Note:Switch you Refrigerators for more than 8 hours and let the frost melt fully use hair dryer and now switch on and check you are getting leak.

older fridges drained water into a pan with the compressor in it, thus cooling the compressor and evaporating the water, this is located at the bottom back of the fridge. if this fridge has a water and/or ice dispensor, the water could be leaking from many a place.

Water comes from under drawers on fridge side, leaks onto floor


If leak continued then you must have a faulty cut off valve. Check and tighten valve. Also, check the hose that runs underneath the fridge for cuts or holes.

Refrigerator leaks underneath


check to make sure the drain pan under the fridge is not over filling, out of place or cracked. The water that collects there during defrost is evaporated by the condenser fan, if the fan is not running or it and the condenser coil are fouled with dust clean them and the issue should go away.

My GE fridge makes Ice but can't get any water?


He is saying the heater in the ice tray located on the bottom that helps loosen the ice before it is dispensed to the ice pan.
A new ice maker for your fridge can be purchase for less and you can install it yourself. Below is my site link, just put your model number in the search feature or the part number WR30X10093 of the ice maker. We also offer free help and assistance, Thanks, Sea Breeze
