If your water filter is " thru the kick plate , at the bottom , replace the filter . I have found several times now , where the filter rubber seals , have leaked into the drain pan , causing it to over flow . You do not have to replace the filter housing , just the filter .

I need to stop water from getting on the floor of the freezer?


If your refrigerator is frost-free, water may not be draining into the evaporator pan underneath. The drain tube may be clogged.

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 refrigerator is leaking water


If the water is pooling around the bottom of the fridge I would pull the fridge out and pull the panel of the back of the fridge and check to make sure the black plastic drain pan is in place and the white or clear plastic hose coming from the bottom of the fridge is aimed at the drain pan, if they are not then that would be why you have water pooling up under the fridge. Generally the Walter gos into the drain pan after defrost and the heat from the discharge lie of the compresser evaporates the water and it should never overflow. Hope this helps

Water pooling and freezing in bottom of freezer. I've shut the valve so no water is going to the ice maker but water still collects. I can't figure where the water is coming from. Can you help? Thanks!


Sounds like the drain from the freezer evaporator coil is plugged causing the condensate to overflow and fill the bottom of the freezer then refreeze. Most freezers have a drain line from the evaporator to the bottom of the refrigerator leading to a collection pan to allow evaporation of the condensate. You may be able to access the evap condensate pan by removing the rear panel of the freezer. I can not say for sure without the specific model of the unit in question.

Frigidaire side by side: water fills up in bottom of freezer


You have a blockage in your drain tube, at the bottom of the metal tray there is a hole which is connected to a tube which runs down the back of your refridge to a pan next to the compressor. It is an easy fix have done this 1000's times. Remove back panel in freezer, grab a heat gun or hair dryer and melt the ice it the bottom of tray. Clean the water in the tray with some paper towel next get some hot water in a measuring jug and pour into the pan(hot water will help melt ice in tube) repeat this process a couple of times and then get a curtain wire or something flexible to push down the pipe to clean the blockage...you will know when the blockage is clear because the water in the pan will suddenly drain off....put cover back on...make sure to unplug appliance before servicing...hope this helps :)

Hollow ice cubes and refrigerator freezer drip pan is freezing


The drain at the bottom of the evaporator on the freezer rear wall is blocked up. Ice may have gotten so far up the side of the evaporator that it is blocking a return air duct which is located there. You need to completely deice the freezer and then **** out and purge the drain hole on the bottom of the evapotrator with hot water and a turkey baster.

Defrost pan keeps overflowing


On the freezer side at the bottom of the freezer coil there is a drain. There should be a thin aluminium filiament attached to the defrost element and feeding down into the drain tube. This filiament conducts heat from the element down the tube preventing ice forming in the tube and keeping it clear.

Check and make sure you defrost drain in the freezer isn't frozen. The water may be coming from the bottom of the freezer inside. When the heater comes on to defrost the evaporator, the water drips in to a small hole in the back bottom of the freezer inside. If the drain freezes, the water runs out into the freezer on the bottom and eventually onto the floor in front of the freezer door. It will eventually create a gap and let moisture into the freezer and may show up in the refrigerator section as condensation. Remove the ice build up including the alluminum drain pan area where the drain is located. Pour hot water into the drain to defrost it. You may have to remove the back of the freezer wall on the bottom to get better access. If the water goes down the drain, its clear. If you need a part for your refrigerator, please email me on ebay under user name themackshack. Good luck! , Mack
