The drain inside the freezer is clogged. Your freezer goes into defrost every 8 to 10 hours. When it melts the ice built up on the coils, the water drains out of the freezer from a drain at the back down to a pan located under the fridge. You will need to remove the inside back panel of your freezer. Look at the bottom in the very back. There you will find a slopping place with a hole in the middle.This is the drain. There is something clogging that hole. I have found peas stopping them up. Take a turkey baster and fill with water. Push water into the drain hole then look for anything else that might clog the hole. Put unit back together. Problem solved.

Why is water dripping from inside the fridge around the rear light section?


In some Refrigerators there is tray below the freezer section and there is a small hole in the tray. Water dripping from the tray enters a hole below in the back and goes out to a chamber.
If the hole is covered with dirt or if you place something in the line between these holes, water will drip and collect in the bottom of the refrigerator.

My fridge is leaking water inside of the main fridge compartment. It is coming from the top and I can see water dripping out of one the hole. There are two small one inch square holes near the back top...


The defrost drain hole is frozen over.
When your fridge goes into defrost mode the water has no where to go but inside the fridge,not down the drain hole.
Turn the fridge off for 24 hours and open the doors. Let it defrost naturally to clear it out.

Water dispenser leaks on model number KSRS25FGSS13. I HAVE FLUSH THE AIR OUT AND IT STILL HAS A VERY SMALL DRIP


Probably replace the water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in. Disconnect the water line to the dispenser there and see if it keeps dripping when you try the dispenser.

We have a refrigerator model ET18NKXFW03 that drips water from the ceiling of the frig. We put a pan to collect the water but several times a week a stream of water leaks as well. It seems to happen more...


You will need to remove the food from the freezer and remove the ice maker if so equipped . Remove the 2 screws from the bottom freezer panel ( you will probably see a layer of ice here ) , and the 2 screws holding the inside rear freezer panel . Using a hair dryer , start in the center , below the coils , defrosting , until you see a drain hole . You want to defrost this hole ( hot water helps ) until water starts to flow down . Use a small hose inserted into the drain hole and blow thru it , to remove any unseen debris , built up inside the drain line . Reassemble the freezer .

Water leaks from the freezer area to the fridge


Check your drip pan and the nozzle of the line and see if it is dry. If it is dry you got a clog like I did.

I solved my own is the line from freezer to the drip pan was clogged with ice. Just remove the two back screws in the freezer section and melt the ice using hot water from the tap and maybe use a light pump could be a small foot pump nothing to powerful to put in the hole and pump until you see the water come through.

Water is leaking under my refrigerator


1)--In some refrigerators, the water from the defrost cycle is intentionally directed down the back wall of the refrigerator, where it then flows to the bottom of the refrigerator compartment and out to a small drain - usually located beneath one of the drawers at the bottom of the refrigerator. If the drain becomes clogged or blocked, the water may back up. To fix this problem, clear the obstruction. 2)--If the refrigerator is equipped with a water dispenser on the freezer door, check if the water line to the dispenser is leaking. Also, check the drip pan to be sure it isn?t out of place, broken or cracked.

Water leaking frigidaire frs23h5as


yes remove the rear panel in the freezer where you see the drain hole. Clear the ice from the drain hole. It will take a while for the water to start to drain because the ice is deep in the insulation. A small tube is helpful to draw some hot water in and stick in in the drain hole and squirt the hot water down in the hole.
