    Well that did nothing! I have taken it apart inside and drain is clear. I have used a air chuck to blow lines and still nothing.Frig line acts different not blowing clear like freezer. So far we are not batting a very good game.

    there is no access to water line in upper frig. only from below no water can be poured up the line. the freezer line is free and working. I have had the water off for 3 days so that cant be it. I sure like the french doors but this is nuts how they made this thing.

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. If this repeatedly happens with yours, you may can prevent it by taking a bare copper wire and wrap it around a fin near the heater and put the other end a few inches down the drain. The heat convection may prevent it from freezing.

    Your freezer still has a drain plug which has gotten stopped up. It's located below the evaporator coil in the freezer.

    If the problem is the drain not draining causing the water to go out the door you can pour water in the drain and see how fast it drains and see if it fills up and runs out. If it seems to run fast enough the problem may be a water leak from a water line in the fridge where the reservoir is.

Where is the drain,and how do i get to it? model rf26vabwp it has french doors


remove all the drawers and unscrew the frame that holds the drawers. Free the the drain tube (need to unscrew the clamps that hold the tube to the back wall). Pull it up from the bottom hole where it drains into the pan and free it from the top drain pan. Most likely it's plugged with **** and fungus and yecchy stuff. Clean it out and reinstall it.

Water under produce section


In addition to water under the crisper drawers, you might be getting water in the drawers too, look for any ice/frost in any of the air vent holes just above the drawers on the rear fan cover. This unit was made by Samsung for GE, these are notorious for this issue as the defrost drain tube wick heater is not long enough to work. You will need to turn the unit off for 24 hours, unplugged, doors open to ensure it's completely thawed both behind the cover and drain tube. Part# WR13X10573 (cover assembly complete) gets replaced, and part# 819043 will need to take the place of the existing Samsung one. Pleazer Appliance...

Water collecting under crisper drawers.


When the refrigerator goes into defrost mode there is a drain tube that allows water melted off the evaporator coil to go into the drain pan that you found empty. That drain tube is clogged.

Water on the bottom shelf of the Refridgerator


Has the refrigerator got a wet inner back?
Ff this is wet, adjust it until this solid ice 'blobs', bt not encrusted, like in a freezer
The refrigerator may not be cool enough and the natural warm moisture allowed into the cool compartment when the door is open is condensing into fluid before it is cooling sufficiently to suspend the moisture as a vapour. If the cool compartment is cool enough, any warm air admitted ill be chilled before it is allowed to condense, keeping the refridgerator dry.
However, the only drawback is that you will have to monitor it to prevent the build up of excesive ice.
Also, whether the refridgerator is either empty of full willaffe the day to day operation.
Hope this helps.

open the freezer compartment loo for ice build up on floor of frezer especally towards rear behind back panel. sounds like you have a clogged/frozen 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)
