Why is water leaking from inside?


If your refrigerator has automatic defrost, condensate drains to the bottom, then through a plastic or rubber tube into the evaporation pan underneath. Sometimes the tube becomes clogged, causing the condensate to accumulate in the bottom and leak out. The tube should be unclogged to restore normal drainage.

Leaking water on floor


Look for:
(1) Condensate drip pan under the refrigerator (catches & evaporates water from defrost cycles) may be out of place or leaking.
(2) Drip Tray under water/ice dispenser may be overflowing (drain may be clogged, if so equipped).
(3) Leaking water supply line (to ice maker/water dispenser): Check:
(a) at inlet-valve fitting(s) and along all tubing going to ice maker & water dispenser,
(b) at water filter connections (check inlet & outlet fittings and any gaskets where filter is inserted,

>>> Tubing can develop a pinhole leak or crack if bent too sharply, pinched when unit is pushed back against a wall, contacting hot or vibrating parts (e.g. compressor or fan),
>>> If connections are the "push-on" style they can leak if the tubing is not cut off squarely - with no burrs, pinched, cracked or distorted ends (use a sharp knife or tubing cutter)
>>> If compression fittings are used with polyethylene tubing a ferrule must be inserted into the tubing end to prevent the tubing from distorting as the nut is tightened; also over-tightening nuts or reusing old compression rings under the nuts may cause leaks.

* Remember to vacuum out the dust bunnies from the fan, condenser coils and all air vents while you're poking around under the fridge!

I have a 2006 saturn ion 2. Just recently, my ac is draining into the passenger floor board. How do i fix this ?


Bulletin No.: 03-01-39-011B
Date: November 22, 2005
TECHNICAL
Subject:
Water Leaks Into Passenger Compartment Through HVAC Module Condensate Drain Tube When Parked on Incline/Uphill Position (Install Auxiliary Drain Tube Extension)
Models:
2003-2006 Saturn ION Sedans and Coupes
Supercede:
This bulletin is being revised to include the 2005 and 2006 model years. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 03-01-39-011A (Section 01 - HVAC).
Condition
When vehicle is parked on an incline with the front end up during a rainstorm or when driving uphill during a rainstorm, water may leak into the passenger compartment through the condensate drain tube opening of the HVAC module.
Cause
Water may drain out of the cowl drain, then drain down the front of the dash panel in the engine compartment and seep into the HVAC module condensate drain tube opening. The water then collects in the heater core cover and upon acceleration may leak into the passenger compartment through the heater core cover seams.
Correction 1. Open the hood and locate the HVAC module condensate drain tube in the engine compartment on the right side of the dash panel.
Important: During installation of the auxiliary drain tube, do not make contact with the HVAC module foam gasket located at the base of the HVAC module condensate drain tube. If the auxiliary drain tube is pushed on too far and makes contact with the foam gasket, water may leak into the passenger compartment.
2. Slide the auxiliary drain tube onto the HVAC module condensate drain tube and make sure that the auxiliary drain tube is angled downwards after installation.cansmo_121.gifcansmo_122.gif

Water flows out the condensation tube even when the heater is not runiing causing the pool to leak down. The heater is 4 years old. Thank you.


It sounds like there is a leak in your system. The condensation tube is to drain off the water because one of the byproduct of combustion is water and it condenses on the heat exchanger. Since it is only 4 years old it might be under warrantee for this issue. The problem might be simple but could be very expensive if the heat exchanger has a leak.

My LG Model LRTN18320WW is leaking water inside frig. on bottom below produce drawer. has occurred since summer. what is solution?


Drain in freezer compartment is plugged.
Mold (fungus) buildup sometimes restricts water flowing into condensate tube in the defrost cycle, and water somehow can enter in the refrigerator compartment and out the bottom of the refrigerator door.
You must clean the condensate tube!
You must remove back cover in freezer. One screw in left upper corner behind plastic screw plug will allow you to remove the cover exposing evapourator coil and condensate drain tube hole below it. Must also remove back cover at rear of refrigerator exposing the condensate drain tube END which may be restricted also.Tube must be totally cleared to allow the water created from defrost cycle to exit to the drain pan in the bottom of the refrigerator.

Water is leaking onto the floor from underneath the refrigerator.


There is a condensor tray located underneath. It catches water and then the water evporates. Sometimes the tube gets plugged and causes a mess. Check the tube and the condensation tray. You can access the tray by just taking off the grille under the door on the front of the refrigerator.

Water leaking all over


The water leaks all over the floor instead of running into the water containner. if that is right then your condenser drain pan tubing is blocked or the pan is rusted out that cause the water leaks all over instead of running down the tubing into the water containner . You've to dismantle the panels to get into this condenser drain pan to have a good clean out . Hope this will help . God Bless.

Water leaking from rubber gasket on tubes in heat exchanger


Are you sure it isn't just condensation? A leak will not go away. If condensation, nothing to worry about. It will go away.

What is the white part that holds water tubing on back of Amana refrigerator? It is leaking water around the tubing


hi,
tubing at the back refrigerator is the condenser, function of this is heat rejection that absorb from your evaporator inside your refrigerator,the white part of holding tube condenser is tube holder mounted by screw to hold condnser tubing has no relate inr efrigetration cycle.the screw use on tube holder was directly pin at the back side of eveporator where cooling effect emerge some ice melted or defrosted form water pass through on screw tube holder,you can fix loosen screw have some sealant pathced to hole where srcew located after a minute of drying time screw it again so that water leak may not come out to that tube holder through your condenser,
well,if that leak does not harm or not make any trouble passing through your condenser its still good condenser need to be cooled so that refrigerant inside tube can flow on liguid state effeciently.on large refrigeration such as ice plant
condenser was designed to have a water shower on tube called evaporative system.it make coole the condenser tube.
this ideas can give you clear explanation why water leaking on tube condenser.have anice day rate me,thanks a lot

Water collecting in bottom of freezer coming from back grill.


To poshodian: There are a few more posts about this problem. Of course, in order to fix it, you have to remove the panel hiding the condenser coils behind the grill and showing the drain hole.

This is what I just posted on one of them:

I’ve had my Maytag 2454 fridge for 8 years. But only this week did the same problem show up as cathy824 and lew223. When I poked a drink stirrer into the top of the drain hole, it was hard as a rock. Not knowing why condensate from the coils was not draining into the hole and tubing that would empty the water into the pan evaporator on the bottom of the fridge, I took everything apart in the back and messed around with the black rubber elbow at the other end of the drain plug. I shouldn’t have bothered, because what I finally did was to pour boiling, boiling hot water over the drain hole to melt the ice and gunk that was frozen solid in the drain tubing. While I was doing that, I poked the stirrer into the hole, washing the gunk down the drain and into the very dry evaporator pan. Keep pouring hot water into the drain hole until you’re satisfied that water can flow freely into the pan.

That solved the problem of condensate water freezing on the bottom of the freezer and running onto the kitchen floor. Thanks to lew223 for the fix! The fridge should be good for another 8 years now.
