Locate the drain tube that comes from the freezer. Even though it is brand new, the tube may have been jarred loose during shipment. When the freezer gets a certain amount of ice build up on the coils, a defrost timer turns on and melts the ice. In theory, it is supposed to melt into a drain tube and down to the bottom of the fridge where it then drips into an evaporator pan. Check in the back also for a plastic tube and try to trace it from there.

Water in the fruit and vegetable draweres


You might have the frig. temperature set too low. Set it at 38 deg. check actual temp. with gage. What happens is ice builds up in the drain tube that runs down to the bottom when the fridge defrosts therefore causing water to run into the veg. drawers. Ice buildup is preventing the water from running out at the bottom where it should. Just raise your fridge temperature a little and the problem should go away. Hope this helps.

Water accumulating inside fridge bottom make GE Model #gta18pbnaww


That's normal especially if you tend to leave the door open alot. Moisture from the outside air condenses and drips to the bottom. Also, if the refrigerator is automatic self-defrosting it will melt ice collecting around the refrigerator and the resulting water will collect at the bottom. Check under the food drawers for a drain hole. If it is clogged, clean it out. If it doesn't exist, periodically sponge out the bottom under the drawers.

54409 // water accumulates under veg and fruit drawers?


Look inside at the back to see if there is a collecting troff which collectes the water runing down the cool plate. In the middle of the troff is a run off hole which takes the water outside to the back to an evaporation tray. if this hole gets blocked it floods the fridge and you know the rest. Some fridges have a looped plug which you pull out of the troff hole to clear the blockage. I know this as my fridge does this too.

Water comes into the fridge from the freezer.


Hi,
You have the drain from the coild froze up. The coils defrost and the water cannot run down the drain so it goes into your fridge.
This tip is all about that and how to fix it.

Collecting water at bottom of frig inside under drawers.


begin by removing the grill on the front at floor level. look under there and you will see the evaporation pan. next pull the fridge out from the wall so you can get behind it. there you will see the tube. to unclog it you will have to disconnect it at the top and force hot water into it using a turkey baster.

Ref. Whirlpool model ED25DQ/ water in meat drawer


You seem to have conflicting information here.
If you turn the therostat DOWN it is setting it to defrost that will not help the food in the door to get cold it gets it warmer. The water is possibly from the fridge being in defrost mode and the tube that usually direcfts it to a tray beneath the fridge to waste tray that evaporates the water from the heater coil has somehow been directed back into the crisper draw.

tfry turning the fridge to colder not warmer. Hope i interpreted this correctly, language is a wonderful tool when facial expression and visuals are available otherwise its a handicap

the water reservoir tank could be your problem, take out the drawers and operate the dispenser and see if water is leaking from it. if so replacement of the tank is very easy

the drain hole is blocked in the bottom of the fridge. if the water is not able to drain down the hole it will overflow into the fridge base. check any holes at the inside back of the fridge.
