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 curtain 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

Ice buildup in bottom of freezer--puddle of water on floor


this sounds like your freezer is operating properly, except that the drainage of the water when going through the defrosting mode is not draining properly, pooling on the bottom of the freezer and then freezing. Check the drainage hose for the defrost in the lower pan. I would remove everything, place in ice chest, let the unit completely thaw out and then inspect. I hope this is beneficial.

Water is leaking into the fridge from the freezer.It is a top freezer with ice maker


It's likely due to a problem in the defrost drain or a leak in the ice maker. You may be able to solve such problems quite quickly, possibly in just a few steps. Have the owner's manual available to help you find

Some models have a selector switch to allow for a manual defrost cycle. If your freezer has this setting (check your owner's manual), ensure that the switch wasn't set to defrost accidentally. If the freezer was in a defrost cycle, check it in about an hour to ensure it is working.

When the defrost system kicks in, frost buildup on the evaporator coils melts and water is collected in a trough beneath it-more than usual. It is funneled through a defrost drain tube or channel down the back of your refrigerator and collected in a drain pan, where it is then left to evaporate.

Often, the defrost cycle turns off before the water can finish draining, and the refrigerator continues to cool. Ice buildup then forms along the system, and eventually water collects and puddles in the bottom of the refrigerator as melted ice continues to drip from the evaporator coils.

If there is ice buildup, allow the unit to thaw:
1. Remove food from the entire unit, storing it in coolers packed with ice, and remove the freezer shelves. Unplug the unit.
2. Using a screwdriver, remove the panel inside the freezer at the back to access the evaporator coils and trough.
3. Leave open the doors and allow the ice in the trough and along the defrost drain system to thaw by itself. This should take several hours. Note: Keep plenty of towels around and be prepared for the drain pan to fill quickly.
4. When thawing is complete, replace the panel and restore power to the unit. When it is cooling again, replace the food.
For more troubleshooting steps and simple solutions, read Freezer leaking water. I hope this helps!

I have an EB9SHKXVQ refrigerator with the freezer on the bottom. Several times I've noticed a layer of ice on the bottom of the freezer under the basket. I have no idea where the water is coming from....


THE DOOR GETTING LEFT OPEN JUST A CRACK,OR HEAVY TRAFFIC...THE WATER IS COMING FROM THE DEFROST CYCLE. THE HUMID AIR IS BUILT UP ON THE COILS AND THE DEFROST CYCLE LETS IT MELT AWAY. YOU MAY NEED TO REMOVE ALL FROM FRIDGE AND START FRESH WITH A MANUAL DEFROST, USE A FAN THIS WILL SPEED UP THE (ABOUT 1.5HR) DEFROST TIME, WIPE DOWN FRIDGE N FREEZER TO REMOVE ALL MOISTURE, COAT DOOR GASKETS WITH ARMOR ALL, AND MAKE SURE THERE IS NO WAY THE DOORS CAN BE LEFT OPEN, BECAUSE OF SOMETHING NOT LETTING THEM CLOSE ALL THE WAY.. .. HOPE THIS WAS OF HELP.. JAY

My frigidaire side by side freezer freezes up and the filter in the refrigerator leaks water. It makes ice fine but will not freeze ice cream. theres a big clump of ice in the back which is under a cover...


the leaking water is the problem. it needs to be fixed, but till then defrost again, use a fan it speeds the process, SHUT OF WTER to ice maker. restart fridge it will work normally. now find parts needed to fix the ice maker water feed.
the leaking water overwhelms the defroster. and causes a coil freeze up, this impedes cooling and air circulation over the evaporator coils

Model number f45zr24jw type 7 water filling up at bottem of freezer looks like it is comming from vent at bottom of freezer back wall filles up leaks out onto floor were is water comming from.


water is coming from the evaporator coil durring the defrost cycle and it must drain down into the small hose in the pan where the ice is , turn the unit off to defrost with a hair dryer of you can wait it out , after defrosting the ice puddle , pour a cup of bleach in it and snake it out with a stiff wire or similar. this should clear your clogged primary evaporator drain and stop the water leak.

Leaking water in bottom of freezer


common issue.....sounds like a drain clog in the freezer compartment above. remove the freezer rear panel and totally defrost the evaporator area, directly under the evap you see( under all taht ice) a small drain hole that has become frozen over, try defrosting with either a hair dryer( not a heat gun too much heat youl melt everything) or by pouring hot water donw the drain until you get a free flow of water down the tube. after its clear reassemble and you should be fine

My freezer's defrost systems runs constantly


i dont think so i would look at the compressor kicking out on thermal overload or a faulty thermostat thermostats have two settings cut in cut out your cut in could be bad and not turning the compressor on till the temp reaches melting temps now if your hearing a click buzz then you need to look at the compressor and make sure the compressor fan is running but its not a defrost promblem

GE Side by side runs constantly.


The timer that controls the defrost cycle/function, may have failed and there may be no defrosting occurring. If icing of the coils due to the missing defrost cycle, there may not be enugh circulation left to keep the thermostat happy.

Try defrosting it manually (I know, it's a pain - aren't we spoiled?) and see if the compressor then cycles for a few days before it starts running continuously again.

And for Dr. Fred, the above suggestion about trying manually defrosting applies to your problem too.
The exposure to overnight moisture (ice accumulation) may have interfered with the automatic cycle.
