Freezer, water problem

I have a Crosley Shelvador side by side refridge/freezer, not sure of the year, but an older model. On the freezer side, down near the bottom, on the back wall is a grate. water seems to be forming and leaking onto the bottom of the freezer where it is freezing and builds up until the door will not shut properly.

Re: Freezer, water problem

You have a frozen defrost drain, first of all defrost all of the ice out of the drain pan behind the grate, once the ice is gone you'll see a drain hole that goes thru the floor of the refrig. you need to flush some hot water thru this drain.

I use a big syringe filled with hot water to do this it will force any sludge build up out of the drain tube into the drain pan.

kind of an easy fix even if you aint 10=)

Need to remove doors from a Shelvador side-by-side fridge to get into house.. How to disconnect water line to door?

Most of the water lines have a quick connect fitting down at the bottom under the unit. Open doors, remove kick plate and follow line back. Should have a connection in that area.

Kenmore refrigerator model 363-58572892 side by side refridge/freezer. Water is appearing on floor in fron of freezer side. Appears to be coming from ice maker. Crack in cce mold? Clogged drain? filling...


The water is from the melted frost of the defrost cycle. The drain at the bottom of the back wall of the freezer is blocked so instead of the water draining into the pan where it will evaperate,it's pooling on the freezer floor and freezing, in many case when the floor indent is full the water will leak onto the floor.By pulling the refrigerator out from the wall,there will be a tube behind the service panel on the right side when looking at it from the rear,that tube can be removed and cleared,then clear the nozzle it connects to inside the freezer.

I hope this helps you to stop the leak,

Check and make sure the drain pan under the refrigerator is in position and the drain hose is in the pan. If it misses the pan it will put water on the floor.

Have a 2 year old SAMSUNG RS2545SH Side by Side

Control board has gone bad....

What happens is the defrost is controlled electronically from a circuit board, when this goes bad, the freezer quits defrosting, and freezes the fans that circulate air through the fridge side of things.

To check this, unplug the entire fridge, leave the freezer open, wait for it to defrost a bit, if this causes the fridge to start cooling again when you plug it back in, then its the defrost. You should also see ice crystals on the back of the freezer just under the icemaker.
