The water is condensation on the cooling coil which is normal. If there is a drain you should check to see if it is clogged. Some units use a heater to evaporate the condensation but I don't know if your unit has this feature. Let me know what you find.

    Some mild drain cleaner may do the trick. I cleared the drain on my air handler with compressed air.

I have an amana 18 top freezer that is about 15 years old. I am getting water on the floor of the refrigator, i have unplugged it for 24 hours, and it still does it. No water is in the pan. What do i do as...


No water in the drip pan, water in the refrigerator - this is a classic case of defrost drain issues. If your unit has a little drip cup at the back of the refrigerator (inside) you will notice a hole above it, this is the drain coming from the freezer - When defrost cycle kicks in the heating element melts the frost on the evap coils above it and water drips through the hole and inside your cup in your refrigerator - then it should drain through a tube that extends to the back of your refrgierator through a hole, from there water drips down the drain tube down the pan at the bottom above the compressor so it can later be evaporated with the heat.

What you have is a plugged drain tube - water drips in your cup and overflows down the back of your refrigerator - if you are able to remove this cup and tube, pass a long wire down the drain line to dislodge any debris or whatever is blocking the line - clean your cup and also check for any debris. Also at the back of your freezer panel look for any debris or obstruction to the drain, causing water to back up and leak elsewhere. Once all this is checked, and you put back the cup, water should flow normally and drain fast enough through the drain tube.

good luck

Kenmore refrigerator model 363.9711781 water appears daily


This water comes from a plugged up defrost drain tube. Do you see like a cup at the back of your refrigerator connecting using a plastic tube in a hole at the back of your refrigerator ? This cup collects dripping water from your freezer during a defrost cycle - you will notice a hole above it on the ceiling - what drips into this cup and drains out back the hole in your refrigerator wall and into a long drain tube extending down into the drip pan at the bottom of your refrigerator, usually sits ontop of the compressor or in newer systems next to the condenser fan and evaporates. If this drain tube is plugged up with debris water will backflow back into your fridge and drip against the wall and under your cripsers.

During a defrost cycle (when you hear the sizzling sounds and all motors are off, open the door and you should notice water dripping.

If you can manually remove the cup yourself you can pass a piece of pipe cleaner or long cable and dislodge whatever is blocking it or if you can't do that you will need to have it serviced, sometimes there is a seal around base of the plastic tube it's best you don't touch or break it. Makes ure the cup is firmly connected and inserted into the hole, you can try raising the fridge a bit, the front part so it is slightly inclined to back. If all fails, have it serviced, it is a very simply problem easy to repair and common too.

Leaking water feom car


This is almost certainly water that has condensed from the atmosphere and is dripping from the condenser of your A/C unit. This is totally normal and nothing to be concerned about.

Leaking Whirlpool refrigerator


My Whirlpool fridge had water droplets falling onto all three shelves and pooling unter the crisper drawers. I solved the problem by clearing the ice-clogged drain in the freezer.

In Whirlpool model ET21UM, the condensation drain hole is located directly behind the freezer. To access the drain hole, remove all your frozen items and place them in a large picnic cooler. Notice that the floor of the freezer is basically a large plastic tray fastened by two small bolts. Unscrew the bolts with a wrench or ratchet and remove the plastic tray. At this point you will probably see that water has seeped under the tray and created a mini ice rink on the bottom of your freezer. You can tap the ice lightly with the handle of a screwdriver to break it up. Once it's broken, toss the ice into your sink, or put it in a plastic bag and store into your cooler to keep everything cold.

Once the ice has been removed from the freezer floor, you should be able to see a metal drip trough in the back under a false wall hiding the condenser coils. It's a little tougher to remove the ice from the drip trough with the screwdriver method, so you might want to use a hair dryer. After a few minutes with the hair dryer, you should be able to remove most of the ice by hand. You can remove any water with a sponge or turkey baster. The only ice left will be a plug of ice in the drain hole in the middle of the drip trough. Heat up a cup of water in the microwave and carefully pour it into the drip trough. If the drip trough is hard to access, you might need to use a funnel. The hot water should melt most of the ice in the drain hole. If it pools in the drip trough and doesn't drain, use a sponge or turkey baster to remove the water and add hot water again. A small length of wire or a pipe cleaner might help clear any other obstruction in the drain hole. When the drain is clear you should hear water flowing through it. Dry off the floor of the freezer and return the plastic floor tray to it's spot and fasten with the two bolts. Remove any water that has pooled in your refigerator and you're done.
