Clean the drain pan and drain line in the back of the freezer section underneath the evaporator coil. Make sure water drains when you pour it in. If it doesn't - also clean drain tube on the back of the unit behind the cover. When done - put the tube exactly where it was.
Good luck! :)

Why is there a layer of ice on the floor of the bottom freezer of my refrigerator?


The water most likely is coming from a defrost drain blockage. Unplug and remove the rear panel inside the back wall of the freezer. See panel location #4 in the photo=> HERE
You will need to get that panel out of the way to see and clean out the defrost drain.

Water leaks every 5-7 days from the freezer. I


If your water valve is not closing properly, it will do that. The water valve is not very expensive. If you have ice and water in the door, there are 2 water valves. Replace BOTH! If one is weak, the other is not too far from giving out too.

Kenmore side by side with water occasionally leaks water at bottom front. About every 2nd day. Whzt could cause this?


Most cases, your freezer evaporator drain hole is frozen, every time it goes into defrost, water backs into the bottom of the freezer and leak on the floor. Try turn off the freezer for approx. 48hrs with door open, afterward turn it back on, most cases it will reset by it self, if no,t check door gasket, evaporator fan motor or debris in the drain hole. Good Luck.

Generally there is a water tray at the very bottom that can be slide out and in with a hose attached to it. its for excess drainage.. with the moving of the refrigerator is sounds like maybe the hose can loose and causing youre puddle. I would start there first.

Frigidaire Side-By-Side Refrigerator Leaks Water on Floor


I don't have the same refrigerator, but had a similar issue with a GE. Melt the ice at the bottom of the freezer. I think the water comes from the auto defrost feature. There should be a hole at the back bottom of the freezer that water would go into, and run to an evaporator pan under the refrigerator. The tube may be blocked that allows this water to drain, so it is backing up in the bottom of the freezer, and overflowing through the front bottom of the freezer to your floor.

Freezer leaking water


The drain is plugged just below the coils in the back of the freezer. My fridge had the same problem and I found the hose (which can be accessed from the rear bottom) was plugged with mold. Also, i noticed the hose was connected to the water holding pan and was too close to the bottom and easy to plug. I removed it from the connector and just let it dangle in the holding pan.
