Defrost drain is clogged. This accessable thru the back wall of the freezer. Also depending on your model some also have removable Bottom floors of freezer that also get ice accumulation. When the defrost drain gets clogged water from the defrost cycle has no where to go so it stays and accumulates ice till eventually it leaks into the fresh food section. Clear the drain completly and you will have no more problems.

I have a bottom freezer on fridge that leeks water in the freezer. Is there something clogged? How do I fix.


Some fridges have a drain that has a rubber valve in the hose that can get plugged up and then the water backs up instead of draining. You may have to take the back off the fridge (metal panel held on with a handful if screws), and I'd suggest go ogling the model and symptom to find a picture of the valve.

Kelvinator fridge freezer


  • If your refrigerator leaks water, you have a problem with either a water line or a drain line. If your refrigerator has an automatic icemaker or a water dispenser, the water supply line could be broken. Automatic icemakers have a drain line that runs down to the drain pan beneath the fridge. Mold build-up inside the drain line can lead to a rupture that allows water to escape .A broken drain line can also lead to water leaking from your refrigerator.

Water leaking from underneath. Not currently


This could be a blocked drain.Behind the fridge is a hose/pipe running from the inside of the fridge down to the compressor where the water will then evaporate.If this pipe is blocked,the water will push up back into the fridge.Try to blow the hose clean from inside the fridge.This should solve your problem.

Fridge constantly dripping wet


water inside, too much condensation from humid air entering fridge from bad seals. replace the seals. could also be that the condensate drain is clogged. if it's leaking from the bottom of the fridge, make sure the tubing is still inside the condensate pan underneath the fridge.

Ice keeps melting in the freezer side of the fridge periodically and leeking water everywhere. Temperature seems to randomly drop to the point where it melts.


Sounds like it's the defrost thermostat gone bad. It's located on the evaporator coils behind the back cover inside the freezer. It may be mishapenned or you can test it. It should show continuity with an ohm meter when it's above 35 degrees. It cuts the defrost heater off to prevent overheating.

Water Dripping Inside


Sounds like a blocked defrost drain. By "American" I presume you mean side-by-side.
I had a similar problem with a freezer-on-top style Samsung. The solution to that was to defrost the freezer, remove the false backing plate in the freezer (required removal of the ice cube tray. the panel just pops out with a bit of pulling). The drain hole beneath the freezer coils was blocked with ice. This drain passes down into the fridge and then out the back of the fridge into the evaporation pan next to the motor. There is a collector pan under the freezer coils, this and the drain hole were filled with ice. When the freezer goes into its self-defrost cycle the water collects here and then overflows into the fridge.
I removed the ice with hot water/vinegar mixture (so it doesn't re-freeze immediately) and simultaneosuly used a bit of chiselling with a screwdriver to clear the drain plug. I did this from inside the fridge working up the drain hole into the freezer. The whole job took about an hour.

Defroster leaks


you have a cloged evap. drain. the rf is defrosting properly but with the drain be clogged the water has to go somewhere which is generally in the crisper draws on top and bottom models. two way to clear up this issue. turn rf OFF for at least 48 to 72 hrs. to allow the drain to de-ice or take matters into your own hands and take the back panel off of the freezer and using boiling hot water pour it down the evap. drain tube until it flows like you just flushed a tiolet
