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

Check the pipe that drains the water from the avaperator (the thing that gets cold inside on the fridge)
periodically your fridge will defrost and the water should drip through a tube and collect at the rear of the fridge
If the pipe is blocked the water collects inside at the bottom ( under the crisper)

Whirlpool refrig. model EET222MKDRO. large puddles of water under crispers every other day. cannot find defrost drain. is this a costly repair or is refrig. shot. thank you.


That drain is below the evaporator and under the defrost heater. To get to it you have to remove the service panel to the freezer section. Use clorox and hot water or a wet dry shop vac to clear the drain.

Water comes off somewhere in the bottom of my fridge. what could have caused it?


When your refrig goes into defrost , the water runs down the back of the refrig ( inside ) and out to the drip pan thru a drain hole under the crispers . If water is under the crispers , remove the crispers and you should see a " cap " covering the drain hole . Sometimes crud will cover the slots where the water is supposed to drain , causing water to pool under the crispers . Just remove this cap , clean , and reinstall .

I have a 6-7 year old Magic chef top freezer, refrig which is collecting water each day at the inside bottom of the box, refrigerator section. I notice that a slight drip of water comes thru the middle...


Hi,

The defrost drain is located just under the cooling coils in the back of the freezer. You will need to unload the food and remove the shelves from the freezer. Take the back panel off from inside the freezer and you will see a hole just below the coils. Flush it with hot water using a turkey baster or small hose. See the link below for more details.

Water on floor of refrigator. Our refrigator is a Frigidaire Crown series model no. F44Q18CC. We have never had the ice maker hooked up sence we owned our refrigator.We bought it about 5 years ago. Lately...


Water collects INSIDE the refrigerator ? It is coming from the freezer. You have a plugged up defrost drain - look for a drain cup inside your refrigerator section agains the wall, this leads to a plastic tube that connects through the back wall of your refrigerator down a drain tube - see if you can remove this and with an object pass it through the drain tube to dislodge anything obstructing the water passage - if you do not have a drain cup in refrigerator then look in your freezer behind the panel you should see a drain hole below the evap fan, where the ice melts and drains through the tube - if this area is iced up or blocked water will overflow to your refrigerator through the cooling vents :)

Water pools under the crisper drawers and looks as if it is draining from the upper freezer down the side of the refrig door, looks like the little hole under the crisper is clogged with rust?? It is a old...


Mine clogs with a soft fungus mat but rust actually sounds better. I run a stiff wire like an unwound hanger into the hole and open it up so the water will drain onto the tray made to collect this water underneath the fridge. Last time I left the wire in place with a long handle and I haven't had water to mess with for many months now. My hole is between the two crisper drawers and when I get into either of them the wire gets a jiggle and I guess that's all it takes to keep the hole clear so the water can drain like it's supposed to.

Otherwise the fungus builds and builds until it sluffs off as a wad and plugs up the works on a regular basis. Too funky for sure.

Water collecting under crisper drawers.


When the refrigerator goes into defrost mode there is a drain tube that allows water melted off the evaporator coil to go into the drain pan that you found empty. That drain tube is clogged.
