Question about Frigidaire PLHT219TC Top Freezer Refrigerator
There is water leaking inside my fridge. I have checked the drain tube and cup within the fridge.Both appear fine, but the leakage does seem like it happens every few hours so it would make sense that it is happening during the defrost cycle in the freezer. The water appears to be leaking more towards the middle of the fridge rater than towards the back. Is there a gasket near the drain hole in the freezer that may need replacing? Or can anyone think of any other reasons why this might be happening. Thanks.
If you remove the back panel of your freezer you will notice what looks like a drain - melted water will go through a drain hole that extends to your refrigerator inside a cup that slowly drains the water through a tube through the back of your refrigerator and down the drip pan. Your cup may appear fine, but maybe there is some obstruction somewhere causing the water not to drain fast enough - so what happens is that the cup will eventually overflow - try to see if you can remove this and pass a long wire down the drain tube at the back to dislodge anything blocking or partially blocking it - see if you can also clean your drain cup, eventually small derbris accumulate. At the back of your freezer panel look for any partial or complete obstruction of the drain hole and its surroundings, which might be iced up.
I myself have had this problem for months, my refrigerator would have water at the bottom accumulate and eventually under the crispers a river of water :)
Cleaning the cup and the drain tube at the back of the fridge and the drain and surroundings at the back of the freezer panel should fix this problem. Sounds like your drain at the freezer level is plugged up and water is backing up and leaking from elsewhere !
