Hotpoint model #ctxy14epjrwh slow water drip from inside of the refrigerator. inside the top of the frig, center, there are several components that appear to come down from the freezer. the lowest one...


That water is from the melting frost of the automatic defrost cycle. Their is drain in the freezer behind the back wall under the evaperator coil that is blocked, so instead of defrost water draining it's pooling in the freezer or in some case espically on models with the freezer on the top,the water is leaking from the freezer vents into the fresh food compartment.
The way to clear the drain is remove back plate and remove all ice build up and GENTLY make a small hole in drain through then totally flush w/warm water.
The exact location of drain is under the coil behind back freezer plate in the centeroldtech2332_52.jpg

Water is leaking on then freezing on the floor of my upright frigidaire freezer. At first I just thought it was a fluke and cleaned it out, but he next day their was frozen water again. I also am finding...


Your freezer goes to a defrosting cycle and actualy melts away some ice formation inside the freezer, normaly this melted ice (water) drains trough a tube in the back of the frig... the drain is probably clogged and the water spils out... to unclogg it you need to find the uper end of the drain (where the water drips in) usualy way in the back of the frigidaire, than try pushing a long wire in downwards to unclogg the drain, also check underneath or in the back of the frig. ther should be a back to hold the water for the time it evaporates, see if it is not full of water or dirt (dust) i even foud some pet toys in there once ha! ha!

Hope this helped!

Water is leaking in the bottom of the freezer, also coils are freezing up with ice, this problem is causing water to leak onto the floor from the freezer


when the cold coil is freezing up this is caused by a failed defrost system ( a bad heater or terminator . or the aditive defrost control . it also will freez the drain in the back of the freezer and this will cause the water to end up on the floor . . i would defrost the frig and repl the terminator . the heate is usualy good . and if problem comes back then replace the a d c . // the a d c pt # 241508001 and the terminator 5303918214 . this is a very common problem .. mm hope this helped and thanks for using fix ya ..

The inside of freezer is leaking from back wall - there is no ice maker. water that leaks is freezing and taking up space. what can be causing this


the drain line is clogged causing the ice build up .the frig has to defrost every 6 to 8 hours so every time it defrosts is when it will leak ..you will have to defrost the frig manually ..turn it off. open the doors. let it defrost. remove the thick ice on the bottom ..after its defrosted take the bottom an back panel off.. un plug frig first !! drainline is in the back in the middle of the freezer. unclogg it hot water or shop vac be carefull good luck!! drain line should go to a pan under the frig, in the back make sure it drains before putting back together

Ice cream and bread don't freeze, food in frig DOES freeze


Not fixed but I do not want to spend MORE money to find out what's wrong with this AMANA piece of ****. Apparently, from research on the net, the compressor or motor is not strong enough in this unit to actually do the job...but if anyone has any suggestions, I'm happy to hear them...

Water collects on shelves and below the crisper bins at bottom


Your defrost drain hole is frozen closed.
Remove the back freezer panel and defrost the ice with a hair dryer.
Once the drain is clear poura 1/4 cup bleach in the drain hole.

Is your problem fixed yet?


Yes, I fixed my problem of the plugged drain that caused the ice to melt onto the floor. Apparently, frostfree frigs have a drain that leads to a pan under the frig by way of plastic tubing from inside the freezer compartment. The drain tube end for my frig only had about 1/8" clearance above the pan bottom. The pan was dirty with an ENORMOUS amount of dust that had collected. So, I had to move the frig out from the wall, remove the back cover at the bottom of the back of the frig. This exposed the white tubing and the gross pan of dust and water paste. I cleaned the pan, disconnected the tubing from the clip holding it in the pan and trimmed about 1/4" off the end to create a bigger clearance into the drain pan.

Make sure the frig is unplugged before you do the job so the evaporator fan doesn't hurt you.

Now, I will have to clean from behind the frig at least once a year.

Hope this helps. Good luck.

Water in floor


sounds like you have a clogged defrost drain tube. removing back panel of freezer will give you acess to drain trough, melt away the ice with a hair dryer, youll find a drain hole under there somwhere,pouring boiling water down the drain will clear it pretty quickly( i use a steam machine purchased from the infomercials works awesome, after you clear it and all water drain down tube wrap a piece of solid copper wirearound the heater( black calrod heater right above the drain trough) and stick it in the whole maybe an inch or so. now everythime the heater comes on to defrost it will prevent the hole from freezing over
