Why does ice form on the floor under the freezer drawer? [Refridge with bottom freezer model 79578092


Freezer /fridge water/ice in fridge and or freezer

Usually due to CONDENSATION due to bad door seals or a plugged evaporator drain line? Can use a soft flexable tubing and very hot water to clean it out. Bad door seals usually need replacement, but u can use a blow dryer and something to pry it closer to the door wall while blowing hot air on to it. To create a seal, to test for bad door seals place a dollar bill in between the door and wall of fridge where it closes. Then slide out the dollar bill with door closed. It should offer some resistance and not be easy to pull out.
Most all fridges have a drain. Look inside your fridge for a "V" shaped channel with a small hole. This hole leads to a tube and a small pan which sits on top of your refrigerator's compressor. The defrost cycle causes water to run into the channel, down the tube, and then it generally evaporates with the heat of the hot condenser/compressor.
However, if that tube is clogged with food crumbs, particles , debris etc, you will have to clear it to get back to a normal mode of operation. A toothpick, pipecleaner, straw or a cotton bud can often do the trick.
Even a frost free freezer will still ice up at times in the areas away from the heated defrost area and the drain line can freeze. This icing causes the pipe work to the compressor to ice over or sweat and cause a puddle. Or if the drainage has frozen over, it will need to be de-iced. ( usually the line is under the freezer bottom plate covering. Towards the back of the unit) And there is another inside the fridge area also.
Give the freezer a good overnight defrost until it's totally clear of ice in addition to making sure the drain is clear to the pan at the back and then restart the freezer.

Amana freezer forms ice on the bottom. We have taken it apart, cleared ice from coils and drain, turned down freezer temp, but it still happens. Fridge works fine. Any other ideas?


When you see that ice forms on the bottom of your freezer it is most likely means that the drain hose of the fridge is blocked.
You will need to take the panel inside the freezer off, clear all the ice and pour hot water into the drain hole until you hear the water coming out at the beck where the compressor is located.
The next step would be running a 1/4" hose thru that hole.
Good luck.

Ice build u p and leakage in freezer


you have a blocked drain in the freezer,when the machine goes into defrost the heater comes on and melts the frost off of the evaporator coil,the water melts and goes down the drain hose under the coil and leaks down to a drip pan near the compressor where it evaporates from the heat,your drain is blocked and the water is leaking onto the freezer floor and will drip out onto the floor,i use a steemer to blow out the drain line,shut down the machine or unplug it,melt out all the ice with hair dryer,depending on your model you might have to remove the back inside wall of the freezer to get at drain hole,you need something to push the **** out the drain hose,you can try a turkey baster or air from a compressor or a shop vac set it to blow,when you think it's clear pour a cup of hot water into the drain,if it drains down you're done if not keep hitting it with heat and air to push it through.

Frigidair Frig PHSC39EJSS. Ice is forming on freezer floor. I have already shut off the water supply for several days to see if it was coming from the ice maker and it still iced over. Also we...


Your condensate drain line is stopped up. Break the ice up off the freezer floor with a screwdriver handle. Turn off the refrigerator. Remove the back inside panel from the freezer. Break up the ice in the drip pan with a plastic handle. you can either heat up a wire with a torch and stick it in the drain to thaw the ice in the drain or set a hair dyer in the freezer until the ice melts in the drain. Then find a 4' piece of 3/8" tubing to stick in the drain and blow in the other end to remove any trash in the drain. you can use compressed air or weed eater line. anything that will clear the drain

Ice accumulation on the bottom of the freezer


Your drain line is clogged, that is located behind the white wall inside of the freezer. The water comes from defrost cycle, that happens every 8-12 hours. You need to defrost it and snake it.

My Whirlpool et9ftk refrigerator keeps pouring water from the freezer into the fridge portion what is going on?


Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. 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

ICE MAKER FREEEZES


my suggestion is unplug frige. for a couple of days! yes you will have to vacate everything. let all ice melt.. have mops and buckets ready for a poss. flood due to so much ice buildup. see if you can disconnect any hoses after thaw and blow in them. make sure fridge is disconnected!. look for any cracked plastic since these can become brittle in time and use 100 percent silicone to seal.
hope for the best!

Large ice block is forming behind the fruit drawer.


i assume you have a model 650 or 550. Your drain line has clogged then frozen. You need to defrost the ice then clear the drain line. I usually knock a majority of ice away then defrost the rest. Once you have defrosted the line you need to clear it. I use high pressure nitrogen to blow them out, but a turkey baster will do just fine. Fill the turkey baster with water, disconnect the drain line from the drain trough. While holding the baster into the drain line squeeze the bulb to force the water into the line. It may take a couple of tries. Reconnect the drain to the drain trough and you should be all set. If you let this go too long the insulation may be saturated and you will have to have a tech install a drain tube heater kit.

Leaking water


In back of the refrigerator behind a removable panel you will find a hose going into the drain pan under the refrigerator. Check and make sure there is no obstruction in the hose which would back up water into the freezer. After the drain hose is cleared the freezer should be defrosted and ice cleared from the drain area in the back. You can direct some hot water with some bleach in it through the drain to insure it flows into the pan.

Leak


drain line is clogged. when the frig defrosts the water drains through a tube down to the bottom of the frig near the compressor where it evaporates away. look on the back of the unit to see if the tube runs down the back. follow it to the end. you need to blow backwards through that tube. let me know if this helps.
