Question about Refrigerators

Water leaking from my refrigerator

I have a samsung rs253basb. On the fresh food side water pools up on the bottom shelf, turns to ice and then runs out the corner of the unit on to the floor. It seems to happen every few days. On this unit the water filter is on that side however it "appears" to be coming from the small vent that is also on the right behind the the bottom shelf.
Any suggestions?

Seems to be a condensation proble, is it possible to lower down fridge temperature a bit? This may solve the problem.

    The defrost drain hole may also be clogged, this combined with condensation near to the fan zone can create your problem. Check that the drain hole is not clogged.
    Also check if there is any water line running near the point where you noticed the water coming from, a broken water line will create same problem.

I have a Samsung srs585hdis side by side fridge and there is quite a lot of water leaking from a cover behind the bottom veg baskets. What would cause this?


The evaporator condensate collection pan drain inside the fresh food section is clogged or blocked with ice. You will need to take the cover off to clean out the drain. Here is a link that shows the breakdown of parts for the fresh food section=> HERE

LEAKING WATER IN SIDE THE REFRIGERATOR


I assume you are talking about ice and water in the fresh food compartment. It is most likely that the defrost drain is blocked in the freezer causing the water to drain through the air vents into the fresh food area. You will most likely have to remove the rear panel in the freezer and pour hot water in the drain trough until the drain clears up and the water drains down the drain tube. You may want to place a small tub in the top shelf to collect all the water that will pour through the vents and have some towels. it can get very wet.

Water is on floor at bottom of freezer door


You defrost drain is blocked by ice or sludge. Most refrigerators defrost every eight hours and over a period of time the drain line that comes down from freezer into a cup like object top middle and back of the fresh food section. If blocked by gunk or ice you will see trails of liquid leaking down the rear wall of fresh food compartment until it reaches the crisper drawers.This is not always the same with every model as you may see frozen ice flowing down ther rear wall of freezers on side by sides. Here is an example Click here=> Whirlpool Leak Photo taken by TechnicianBrian He has been around a good bit and deserves credit for his contributions. Here is another way to make this look more si mple in clip below. TechnicianBrian.com And in this photo are several parts listed in photo group #1 were it is most likely running down the wall=> MagicChef CTB1921AR fresh food section. If you still have questions please ask and rate me if I was able to explain this well enough. Every refrigerator is made different so these are examples only. The key is to find if ice or just gunk has blocked you defrost drain. Unplug and then remove the rear panel in back of freezer. We need to see if the water is overflowing the condensate drain tray or if the blockage is in the turn the drain leads down back of your refrigerator. Much more on this page=> Leaking Refrigerators! This is a common tip so I will be placing this post and add as we go new ideas listed in Sea Breeze Tips Section. If you run into any problems along the way of repair please let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

You need to unplug remove the contents of the freezer and then remove the rear panel on the back wall of the freezer. Once that has been removed you will see the evaporator and at base of evaporator you will then see a defrost drain. Melt any ice that may be blocking the drain and then use a turkey baster to force hot water through the drain to disloge any ice or gunk that may be blocking the drain further down the drain line that ends up at base of refrigerator in a condensate drain pan.
