I believe your defrost condensate drain has a blockage of ice and will need to be defrosted and clean the condensate line from the freezer to the condensate collection plate below your refrigerator. Most times the blockage begins slowly until the opening of the drain hole under the evaporator freezes itself shut. Below is a link to some solutions I have collected over a period of time. Also has a short movie that makes the repair look simpler. There are many reasons for this happening for example water leaking from a water supply line for the dispenser or ice maker, a crack in the defrost pan, water leaking inside and draining through the refrigerator cabinet, but most are caused by a defrost drain line blockage. Below is a link that may be helpful so try to take it all in and use the parts that most refer to your specific problem, Thanks Sea Breeze

Hi there, have a Hisense fridge model hr6tff526(s) which is leaking water from the inside,looks like its coming from the top where the fan is located.thx


Hi Kassem

It's probably just condensation water like what you get under an air conditioned car in the summer.

Usually in a Fridge they collect the condensed water and run it down a clear hose pipe to a plastic container at the bottom rear of a fridge.
This pipe can become blocked with food & junk & mould, mice etc.
Find one end and clear the obstruction. A flexible rod or wire or air burst.
Cheers

Drop of water on the ceiling of my fridge


If you have a top freezer and have the refrigerator in a room that gets warm and has abundant moisture it is not uncommon for water vapor to condense on the cool freezer top surface. Put a small mat on top of unit.

WILL NOT COOL OR MAKE ICE. COMPRESSOR DOES NOT SEEM TO COME ON.


next time send the model number off of the fridge,side by side or bottom freezer model number is in fresh food section,right hand wall up near ceiling or on ceiling,top freezer look on left side wall.if the compressor isn't running most likely you have a bad start device located on the side of compressor,pull out the fridge,unplug it,remove the back outside bottom panel and you'll see the compressor,pop off the metal clip,remove the cover and slide off the start device or overload and relay same thing,then shake the device,if you hear pieces rattling around inside it it's bad,easiest way to check it,if you open the freezer door and you hear the fan blowing around most likely this will be your problem,you might hear the compressor clicking trying to start and it will be hot,also vac out the condenser coil and make sure the condenser fan motor is running good,over heating can take out the start device.good luck.

The fridge is dripping water from the top ceiling in the fridge and the fridge itself is making a terrible noise. We unplugged the fridge for four hours and now it is quite however there is ice covering...


The drain in the freezer behind back lower panel
needs opening. You can see it at the bottom of the back panel
underneath the evaporator coils. (The cold coils)
Run Hot water in the drain until it clears or use a hairdryer.
When the defrost melts the water it goes down the drain
If the drain is clogged with Ice or ? The defrost water
overflows into the ref. or freezer
Run Hot water in the drain until it clears or use a hairdryer.
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath

Consdensation forming on freezer ceiling of Frigidaire FRT22 and freezing into peaks. Some condensation of ceiling of fridge ceiling too.


Door seals have been damaged or the door has got out of adjustment, possibly some one leaning on it with to much weight.

I have condensation dripping right behind where the french doors meet on the ceiling of fridge, how can i solve this problem?


Possible that your door gasket is not sealing very well and therefore condensation forms in this area?

Water under veggie bin in fridg. model frigidaire F44Q21RJ,


possibility's:


1 There is a drain that carries away the water under the cooling coils. These coils are in the freezer section.

2 The damper going to the crisper( s) is open too far allowing cold air to cause condensate on the fridge wall or bottom.

3 The freezer section is not defrosting and there is a spot where the ice buildup is allowing conductive cooling into the refrigerator section and therefore is allowing condensation on the refrigerator wall or ceiling.

4 The refg section has a heater (possibly not positive) in the area of the door frame, or it may have a "power saver" switch. This switch and the heater (if it has a heater it may not have a switch) are designed to stop condensation on the refridg while running. I fit is placed in the "power save" mode it turns off the heater. But, if you live in extream humidity (Great lakes east side or Gulf coats Houstion...) the humid air will condensate water out and it will collect and settle on the floor.

5 Door gaskets are not sealing especially on the bottom of the door. This allows warmer air into the fridge section and it is condensation on floor under the crisper.

If you check all of these items and still cant find it please post back and tell me what you did find. So I can help you more. Please rate me as much as possible as Im trying to keep my average up and do the things that will actually educate and help people.

THANK you for using fixya and good luck..
