I believe it is a condensate leak. every time your refrigerator defrost the water follows a tube to a pan below the refrigerator. Im going to send you the manual and a link to click on to see what will be involved to help you resolve this, Sea Breeze

    There are many reasons for this happening for example water leaking from a water supply line for the dispenser or ice maker, a crack in the defrost pan, water leaking inside and draining through the refrigerator cabinet, but most are caused by a defrost drain line blockage. Below is a link that may be helpful so try to take it all in and use the parts that most refer to your specific problem, Thanks Sea Breeze

    On page 18 in the PDF manual it has the refrigerator split in half. You can see the drain tube in the drawing on both half's and back at bottom of the evaporator. The manual is very helpful and I can be also if you like. If you have more questions or need help feel free to let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

In garage/works perfectly/slow leak coming from an insulated hose that goes directly into the bottom of the freezer itself.


The hose coming from the bottom of the freezer is draining the melted water produced during the automatic defrost cycle. Usually the water is collected in a pan somewhere around the hot compressor motor so the heat can evaporate the water.

The hot copper tube by the compressor is the high pressure tube going to the condenser. The other tube going to the compressor is the return line from the evaporator and, after normal operation, is cold to the touch. It is this cold refrigerant returning to the compressor that cools the motor.

My fridge freezer leaks water every two to three days any ideas why?


Actually, on most Frost Free refrigerators (which are most refrigerators manufactured in the last 25 years) there should be a small "pan" underneath that "collects" condensate. This is a normal process as, every so many hours, a small heater comes on inside the freezer to "melt away" any of the accumulated frost. This frost melts and runs down a tube and then is collected underneath the refrigerator. The external fan underneath the refrigerator causes the condensate to eventually evaporate into the room air. You might be, either in a very humid environment and it can't evaporate fast enough, or more likely that you have a missing pan to collect the condensate. If it is missing, you might get lucky with finding a small "cookie sheet" that might fit underneath. Be careful though. You don't want to touch, AT ALL, any of the coils (looks like radiator screens) underneath, or the fan blades. Best bet if you are missing the condensate pan is probably to get your model number and search for parts at a local appliance parts store or online.

My samsung rs267lash, the coil inside the refrigerator section keep on freezing up also just under the fan and it's stoping the fan


Most likely the defrosting heating element has burnt out and needs to be replaced. I know it seems contradictory but modern refrigerators rely on a heating element cycling on a couple of times daily to keep the condenser core from freezing up.

Please rate my response.

It is leaking water out of the bottom. It does not appear to be coming from inside the fridge or freezer. It does start on the bottom on the freezer side.


Without seeing your refrigerator I can only imagine that you have a drain pan leak below refrigerator, defrost condensate drain line loose or missing the drain pan, frozen over drain opening inside rear wall of freezer or the defrost condensate line is blocked somewhere along its route to the condensate collection tray below refrigerator.

Water leaking out of unit, not out of flow tube.


Some models have a hose, some don't , maybe the drain hole it's restricted, condensor normally it's in the back of the unit, you might have to remove one of the side panels.

We have a leak in the back bottom of our refrigerator , ice maker


You say there was a new copper line attached? I assume that this means a repair has been done. If the unit has been slightly overcharged with refrigerant, this can cause excessive condensate to build up on the return copper tubing and would then drip in the back of the fridge. Or you should check on the drainpipe which often has a drainpan built either over the compressor dome or somewhere within the compressor area. Make sure the drainpipe is not missing the pan and that the pan is not leaking.

Leaking water


Hi, When your fridge does a defrost cycle, the water is drained down the back..into a storage pan where it will evaporate. In your case the pan is missing or not flat...or the drain line is plugged. You will need to move the fridge from the wall, and open the bottom pannel in the back. There you should see the problem. While you are there it is a good time to vacuum and /or blow of the cooling coils for best efficiency. (I use a shop vac, which can also blow air)
