Remove the food and ice maker (if equipped ) from the freezer , and remove the rear inside freezer panel . Below the coils , there is a drain pan which is probably iced over . Start in the middle with a hair dryer , and defrost until you see the drain hole . Use hot water to help defrost the hole . Once defrosted , insert a small hose , to blow any unseen debris , thru the drain line , and into the drain pan .
To permanently "fix" this problem , after defrosting the drain hole , insert an aluminum solid wire ( no insulation ) , or a copper ground wire , into the hole as far as possible , without force , and wrap the black rod above the hole (defrost heater) , about 1-2 turns with the other end of the wire .
When the refrig goes into defrost , the heat will transfer to this wire , keeping the defrost drain from being frozen up again .

Why does kenmore side by side model 596.50004100 leak water from bottom?


1. there is a condensation pan under refrigerators, pull front bottom grill off & you should see pan. if pan is full it will overflow, pull forward to remove & empty. also check to see if something spilled in bottom of fridge & is running into drain hole into pan. most of the time condensation is so slow that it will evaporate before the pan fills up, but I've had them fill up on me in the past, not too often though.

2. if fridge is equipped with ice maker & clod water dispenser, connections on bottom back side could be leaking ( not likely, unless they have been disturbed).

there is not much else that it could be unless it is not the fridge & is coming from some where else & running under the fridge.

Whirlpool side by side full drip pan


The condenser fan should be running whenever the compresser is running. With all of that condensate, I would look at your door gaskets. If they are leaking and you are in a high humidity area you will produce more condensate than what the pan can Handel. Then again. If the compresser is running the heat from the discharge line should evaporate the water with ease. I would look at the seals possibly leaking and ignore the full drain pan.

My handler is leaking. The drip pan has a little water in it, I see a slow drip outside during operation. Near the blower water is coming out of one of the air ducts.


Hello, most likely you have a clogged condensate drain or a cracked or leaking condensate pan. First use a wet/dry vac on the outlet of the drain line, this will usually unclog the line. If the line appears to be clean then the pan will have to be replaced.

Water is dripping from the freezer compartment into the fridge compartment.


WATER LEAKING FROM REFRIGERATOR OR INSIDE THE FREEZER OR FRESH FOOD SECTION
You have a blockage in your condensate defrost line or the pipe that fill the tray below the refrigerator is missing the condensate collector pan that uses the heat from the fan to evaporate the condensate back into the air inside your home. Or this sounds like you have a blockage in the drain tube, remove panel back of freezer...you may see ice build-up, melt ice with hair dryer, you will see a pan below evaporator, melt ice in pan, dry water up in pan with towel, now you should see drain hole in pan that leads to drain tube, pour some hot water in pan, wait a couple minutes, wipe up water and repeat this step 2-3 times, once you have done this use a wet and dry vacuum cleaner to vacuum out the gunk or blockage in the drain line. Now it is cleaned out! Put back panel back and you are good to go. The reason you see water in the Freezer is because the water has been leaking into the freezer instead of running into the drain hole...If you need any further assistance please feel free to comment again.

Refrigerator Leaking from underneath


OK I will help but I think if you could find the model number and on some they always seem to be worn off or hard to see, I'm trying to picture in my mind if you have a water and ice dispenser in a side by side or jut a freezer over the fresh food compartment. If you have no water and ice then something like a leak has happened to de condensate collector pan or the drain tube has missed the pan. Without water from another source something is wrong with the pan or the pipe leading to the pan. If you have water and Ice Maker it;s possible you have sprung a leak in the water lines leading to the dispenser near the floor and behind the kick plate. The water lines on those models enter the bottom hinge of the door.Best way to see what is happening with the condensate pan is unplug and pull refrigerator away from wall and remove cover over compressor and condenser area to examine the pan closely. See if you can locate that model number and I will return with some helpful links, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Air Conditioner (RUUD model: UBHC-14J06NFD) is leaking water from bottom. It is causing a major puddle in Air Intake area.


The condensate drain line/pan is clogged causing the condensation to overflow the pan.

The easy way to fix that is attatch a powerfull wet/dry shop vac to the end of the drain line and such out whatever is causiing the clog. Also take off the panel to the evaporator coil and clean out the pan with the shop vac.

To double check that the clog has been removed, pour a gallon or two of water into the pan and ensure that it is draining properly.

Have a GE side by side, when it goes through the defrost cycle puddles of water form outside the unit. Drain hole in bottom of freezer seems to be clear.

Water leaking into the house - model AOT24RWGL


Either the drain line is clogged, or there is a hole in the pan.

Get a powerfull wet/dry shop vacume.
Attatch it to the end of the drain pipe and seal it tight and pull out any dirt, mold crud blockages.

Take the panel off so you can access the drain pan under the evap coil. Clean that out as well with the vac.

Once its nice and clean, poor a gallon or so of water into the pan bein g carefull to not pour to fast.
Make sure that the line is drainign well and look for any spots where there may be a crack, hole etc in the drain pan where water may leak out
