Hello, this sounds like you have a blockage in the drain tube, remove panel back/bottom of freezer..you may see ice build up...melt ice with hair dryer/heat gun...you will see a pan below evaporator...melt ice in pan...dry water up in pan with paper towel...now you should see a hole in pan that leads to drain tube...pour some hot water in pan..wait a couple minutes..mop up water and repeat this step 2-3 times....once you have done this find some flexible curatain wire or electrical wire..poke down the hole until you see the water drain..now it is clear..put back panel back and you are good to go. The reason you see water in the fridge is because the water has been leaking into the freezer and down the vent into the fridge instead of running into the drain hole...Please feel free to comment again if you need any further assistance. Mike

Excessive water in rear defrost tray on kenmore Elite bottom freezer refrigerator. Not leaking from ice maker?


You should never have to empty the defrost condensate it's supposed to drain through a drain hole and into a pain below the refrigerator where the fan blows over the water with warm air and re-evaporates it back into the air.

My profile ge fridge leaks water and the water pools at the bottom of the fridge. What is the cause please. Thankyou!


There could be overflow at the deffrosting tray and the excess water is flowing out of the collection tank.
You can get access to the tank which is at the rear bottom . Open the sliding cabin to take the drain tank to be emptied.
Sometimes heavy frosting in the coil can result in this build up and cause the over flow.
You must take a look at the source of flow to finalise.
Please comment.

Ice build up on bottom of freezer. Water leaks out of freezer possibly from melting. Water leaks onto floor of kitchen.


Your problem is possibly one of two things. The ice maker is leaking or the defrost tray behind the rear panel inside freezer back wall is clogged with ice or something else. If you know its not the ice maker unplug the refrigerator and remove the back panel to see if the drain is blocked there, Let me know, Sea Breeze

Water leaks under veg bins.. Cannot tell where it is coming from. Accumulates slowly


This refrigerator look like mine (Picture).
Mine did the same thing. If it is the same then this is what I did.
Look under the there is a collection tray.
This tray collect the water.
At the bottom of the refrigerator (Inside where the water collect) is a cap.
The cap has cap would have holes or a slot that allow the little water to fall to the collection tray.
Mine has slots and was block up.
clean it out and that should do it.
The water should be able to fall to the tray at the bottom.
I do hope this help you.

Water is leaking from under freezer side.


It should be next to compressor or on top of it. Water that comes from defrost is piped down to tray to evaporate back into the air. Sometimes the tray leaks or the drain line is missing the tray. If you could get the complete model number for your refrigerator I could help you a little better.Sea Breeze

Moffat fridge leaks, every couple days water on floor at front of fridgee


The reason why it leaks is because the pipe that discards the water underneath the refrigerator is clogged and must be cleaned. The water normally drains through this pipe into the bottom tray of the refrigerator where this water deposit is supposed to evaporate during normal conditions. When the pipe is clogged then the water does not fall into this tray. Therefore, turn off the refrigerator (power off/ previous taking-out of all food of course!) than go behind the fridge and locate this pipe (plastic hose / if you have difficulty locate at least the tray on the bottom and than locate this pipe / to locate it you can see the little hole on the back bottom of the freezer this is where the water is supposed to get out. Put water into the hole and you can see where it falls). Clean the pipe and the problem should be solved.
