    I have a Maytag Model MSD2650HES Side-By-Side Refrigerator which is less than two years old. It has started leaking water all down the back of the freezer from where the line comes into the back of the freezer at the top. It freezes and there is ice all the way down the back and at the bottom inside. I turned off the water to the icemaker and it finally stopped after the line cleared out. How do I fix this leak?

    Thank you,

    I have a Kenmore refrigerator that is 10 years old.  It leaks from time to time in the freezer area on to the floor .   We noticed recenlty we put our hand to the back of the freezer and we felt hot air.



    So far we have raised the temperture in the refrigerator and also made sure we do not keep the door opened.


    Anyone had this problem?  Thanks.

My kenmore frig side by side did the same I flushed the freezer drain like the instruction book says but it leaked on the floor after A week.
I pulled out the frig unplugged it in the back I removed the bottom black cardboard grille and vacuumed the underneath and removed the black drain tube and flushed water through it and put it back that solved the problem and took about 15 minutes to do I hope this helps people who are having repeat trouble.

It did work but after a while it happened again. I keep the freezer temp to med. It did start after installing the ice maker. So now the water is shut off to the ice maker. I removed the bottom panel in the freezer held by 2 screws and removed the sheet of ice gently. Will castor oil in the drain hose help? Thanks for your help!

This is the most common thing on this site for refers. Its the drain line that takes water from the freezer when it defrosts to the pan underneath the appliance. You need to locate the drain line and remove the obstruction, sometimes its frozen so a short thaw may be helpful. The way I do it is I find the drain hose at the bottom of the fridge where it drains into the pan. I then connect a hose to it and blow compressed Co2 into the line. When there is no back pressure, I know its clear.

There is a pan and drain hose under the freezer coil that is there to catch any water when the freezer goes into defrost. I feel strongly that is where you will find your leak.

Samsung Fridge Freezer leaking water


hi August.
Cause: A blocked defrost drain is one of the most common causes of water leakage. This happens when food particles or other debris clogs up the drain hose, which can lead to ice buildup and, eventually, water leaking out of the freezer and refrigerator.
3 common refrigerator problems you can easily fix yourself

The freezer drain hose will drain the defrost water into a drip pan at the bottom of the freezer. When this pan becomes full, it will leak water onto the floor. This is a regular maintenance task whenever the freezer defrosts. Empty the drip pan during the defrost cycle.
How to Fix Water Leaking From the Bottom of Freezer

Why is my fridge leaking water on the floor? If the refrigerator is leaking water it's possible that the refrigerator has a clogged or freezing defrost drain. If the defrost drain freezes the defrost water will overflow the drain and drip down to the bottom of the compartment, If enough water accumulates in the bottom it can run out onto the floor.
