This sounds like a problem with the defrost drain being plugged. Find that drain pan...look for the drain and clean it.

Water leaking from door: top left door of my french door fridge (with freezer on bottom)--water leaking from the very bottom right corner of that left side door

your drain is clogged. if ice isbuilt up in the freezeer floor. when the freezer defrosts and the drain is clogged it has no where else to go other than ouot the front. pull everything out of the freezer and check twards the rear at the bottom. remove as much ice as possibile let set unplugged and door open for 3 hours. then take a cup of boiling water and pour it back there. if it dont drain repeat that process with the water-have a towel ready because if the water stays back there long enough it will get cold. you need to keep the water HOT. ice could be built up in the drain. hope this helps

The defrost drain hole in the bottom of the freezer has frozen over. Turn off the fridge. Remove the shelves and bins. Remove the rear panel of the freezer. You will see ice on the bottom rear of the freezer. Use a hair dryer to melt the ice,especially in the drain hole once you get through the surface ice. Once the drain hole is clear,pour a cup of hot water through the drain hole followed by 1/4 cup bleach. Re-install your parts and turn the fridge back on.

Viking freezer leaking

you have a clogged drain, it is either clogged with ice or some kind of debris, thaw the freezer out and push a length of weed trimmer line down the drain. The drain is accessible by removing the back wall of the inside of the freezer. If there is no clog then the drain may be freezing up, if that is the case, take a piece of 14 gauge romex wire and loop it several times around the heating element at the bottom of the evaporator and push a few inches of it into the drain, this will get hot and transfer heat when it goes into a defrost cycle which is where the water is coming from in the first place

Water gushed out freezer door, possible solenoid problem?

The drain is clogged. The drain is usually located inside the freezer on the bottom shelf to the rear. Use a meat baster and a solution of 1 tsp. baking soda and 2 cups of hot water-not boiling to unclog the drain. You probably also have about 1/2 inch of ice build-up on the bottom shelf. This will have to be removed first.

We have a side by side refrigerator/freezer. a water drip runs down the grille on the freezer side. a small amount. we cannot locate where the water comes from. Can you help?? model #ed20tqxfn00 Al...

If you have ice and water in the freezer door it would appear that the water line going to the water dispensor has a leak. First check where the door hindges at the bottom as this is where the line runs from the water container located in the fresh food compartment to the water dispensor in the freezer door.

Is there ice build up under the bottom basket in the freezer??

sounds like the defrost drain is frozen up. especially since your cleaning up once or twice a day. simply defrost the drain and flush the drain line with warm water. you will likely have to remove the freezer cover inside the freezer compartment to do this.

if there is no ice build up under the baskets then its likely there is a leak in the water line for your water dispenser line that runs in the door. if thats teh case you will most likely need a service company to fix it for you..
