This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer

Fridge freezer warm 2touch on outside and water lying in bottom of fride


1. Defrost timer failed, check to see if it is running at all over a half hour. If not, look into the defrost timer. This also drives a heater around the door.

2. Door not closing fully.

ITS NOT KEEPING FOOD COOL......LEAKING WATER FROM LEFT AND RIGHT SIDE. ICE CREAM MELTING


The model is not mentioned but I think that the fridge is defrosting from the evaporator to leak the water out.
Set your thermostat to normal and see if the fridge is cutting off when the ice forms.
If not switch off fride fully for about 6 hours and start again . If cooling is good then check for auto defrost timer, the thermostat or poor lining of the gasket .. faulty gaskets.
If food is not cooling then check on gas pressure, pumping of comrpessor., if poor reading change gas or overhaul compressor.
Estimate and decide.

Hi freezer on american style fridge freezer is


there is a defrost mode that melts any frost or ice on the evaporator coils and drains it into a pan under the fridge. if that drain is blocked, the water will pool inside. also check the door seals. if warm moist air leaks in, it'll condense on the cold interior and pool as well.

Smeg fride freezer leaking


HI Mark,
The evaporator drain is blocked causing the defrost water to pool, freeze and then leak onto your floor.
Clear out the freezer, then use a hammer to break up the ice on the floor. Now remove the rear panel. You'll see more ice build up. Don't use the hammer on it! (Too close to the coils for comfort) Use a hair dryer to warm up/melt the ice below the coils.
You'll see the drain hole now. Clear the drain by forcing a solution of water and bleach or water and baking soda into it with a basting syringe. If the solution will not flow through, slide a length of ¼ inch flexible tubing into the drain tube to push the clog through to the drain pan. Remove the tubing after clearing the clog.
