    well you could have a pan that is too full but not likely a comon leak is either from the water line going to the unit to feed the icemaker or the valve itself when it fills the Icemaker you will have to pull the unit out and look inthe back of the unit it is on rollers so it should pull out pretty easy and check around for the water spots

Inside of the unit is a drain hole that will drain out water to the drip pan. The drip pan is located under the unit and it uses the heat of the motor to evaporate the moisture that collects in it. The drain hole is plugged. Go on youtube and you can watch a video on how to fix it. Very easy.

Mostly the drip-pan can't be accessed from the front.

The drip-pan isn't.
It is in fact an evaporator. It collects the considerable amount of water from the auto defrost function and holds it until the heat from the motor and compressor can evaporate it. The water is transferred from the inside by a drain tube.

A blocked drain tube is not unusual and is generally fairly simple to clear. Often it is a stray vegetable that causes the trouble and sometimes it is a buildup of ice. If the water cannot escape a wet floor is usually the result.

Our fridge recently suffered from the same trouble. I used a plastic covered wire coat hanger to clear the drain of ice - very carefully...

I have a GE Artica PSF26PGSA BB side by side refrigerator. Water collects in the bottom and runs out on to the floor. Any suggested solutions?


Clean it. You probably have a large dust collection in, under and on your units underbelly.
You should have a collection pan, underneith, that collects the runoff water and the heat from the componits will evaporate it before it fills too much.
You could also have a leak in the plumbing system that supplys your ice maker. When your valve opens, you should be ready with a flash light inorder to watch for any drips underneith the unit.
Could be a simple fix of just tightening up a bolt, or could be a repairman issue.

Good luck.

Water collecting on floor under the refrigerator


The evaporator pan in the bottom of you refrigerator may be out of place, damaged or missing. there also may be a problem with the drain tube being bent and not dripping into the pan. It is also possible that the drain tube could be clogged and water could be collecting in the bottom of the refrigerator and spilling out too.

I have a Kitchenaid Superba side-by-side refrigerator that is 14 years old. I noticed water on the floor tonight and the tray below the freezer was full of water. I emptied out the tray but water seems...


There is a hose that runs from under the evaporator coil inside the freezer (it is connected to the inside drain pan) to the outside to deposit the defrost water into the outside drain pan. That hose may be cracket, broken, or maybe when you put the outside pan back somehow the hose did not wind up above the pan so the water would go into the pan. Check the location of the pan. If you need more help, just write back.

I have water collecting on the bottome of my side by side refrigerator on the frigerator sided un the crisper.


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
Actually the leaking water is from the evaporator coil unit....(it is located at the back wall or underneath the freezer compartment). Under normal conditions,Self-defrost refrigerators usually dispose the water generated during the defrost cycle through a tube or channel that directs the water a pan (Known as Drip pan), commonly below the refrigerator unit....
The channel or tube is clogged and the water is leaking to the refrigerator/freezer unit, so you need to clear that blockage/contamination....Once the blockage is removed, the generated water will move through that channel/tube directly to the drip pan and there will no water on the floor in the refrigerator/freezer compartment. This is all you need to do....


Best of Luck,


Your token of appreciation in form of rating would be highly obliged,


Concerned.

Water collects and freezes in bottom of Kenmore freezer of side-by-side freezer/refrigerator


Hello, this sounds like you have a blockage in the drain tube, remove panel back of freezer..you may see ice build up...melt ice with hair dryer/heat gun...you will see a pan below evaporator...melt ice in pan...dry water up in pan with paper towel...now you should see a hole in pan that leads to drain tube...pour some hot water in pan..wait a couple minutes..mop up water and repeat this step 2-3 times....once you have done this find some flexible curatain wire or electrical wire..poke down the hole until you see the water drain..now it is clear..put back panel back and you are good to go. The reason you see water in the fridge is because the water has been leaking down the vent instead of the drain hole...If you need any further assistance please feel free to comment again. good luck! P.s Please don't forget to rate my solution thanks!

Why does my magic chef refrigerator leak water on the floor


Could many problems causing this. From were is the leak, below the doors, that means the door seal is going bad, from under the fridge, it can mean the drip pan is full of dirt and muck. Pull her away from the wall and check the drip pan, some you can get to from the front some from the back. Under here is where all the stuff collects to muck things up. Get a Vac and clean her up, pull out the pan wash it off outside put it all back together, forget it about.
