Do I need to remove the bottom panel beneath the last basket of my freezer in order to see the drain tube for flushing

Hello Shirley, thank you for you post!

I understand that your Frigidaire freezer is leaking water onto the bottom panel of your freezer. This could be a possible clog within your drain line or an issue with your gasket. I would recommend performing a manual defrost on your freezer and you can do that by disconnecting power from your freezer for at least four to five hours. This will help clear out any clogs within your freezer.

You may also want to test your gasket and you can do that by using a dollar bill. Place the bill between your freezer and the freezer door. If you pull the bill and it provides resistance the gasket is good. If the bill slides out you may need to replace the gasket. It that all checks out to be in proper working order I noticed you wanted to access the drain tube. In order to access the tube you would have to remove the rear panel wall. This is not a simple DIY job and I would recommend reaching out to a professional for proper diagnosis and repair. I hope this information is helpful to you. -Matt

Frigidaire FFHS2311LWD has water pooling up and freezing bottom drawer and lower vent. Drain tube doesn't seem to be clogged. Water leaks onto floor some days.

the drain tube is most likely clogged. if the lower vent is freezing up there is no way to confirm because it is covered with ice. the reason water leaks onto the floor is, the refrigerator goes into defrost, frost melts and runs down the ice to the door. use a hair dryer to remove all ice, then use hot water to check drain. drain tube may be up to a foot long and may have a trap. you may have to go in through the back to gain access to the drain

Model # FFU14F9GW.. water pooling under unit

If the water is pooling under the bottom drawer. I'd say your drain is clogged..the drain will freeze over from something getting into the drain i.e. food particle....The best thing to do. Is use a hair drier to defrost the drain pan and then make sure your drain runs free by pouring water into it....

if this is pooling under the refrigerator and out on the floor..There is a drain pan problem..and /or the drain hose going to pan is out of the pan , or has a hole in it...correct as needed
If this has been helpful in fixing your problem..please leave a testimonial.....thank you

Fridgidaire freezer will not freeze, it will freeze a very thin layer of ice when I placed a cup of water in the freezer. I also cut it off over night to make sure there was no ice build up on the coils...

there is a chance that the unit is low on freon.
but you need to have the current draw check to make sure it is working in the proper range 1.2 to 1.6 amps while running

Just got a used 5.0 frigidaire chest freezer and noticed that it is starting to frost at the top but water is starting to pool at the bottom. any help would be appreciated

Good day,
The interior walls should frost evenly. If you only get a partial frosting pattern then either you have a refrigerant leak or a restriction in the refrigerant lines.
Either problem would be considered a terminal failure in a chest freezer.

I have a fridgidaire freezer that is just cooling not freezing?

some freezers will not freeze in the freezer department if you are low on freon. the motor cannot produce enough freon to keep your freezer frozen when it is to low, however, you might have the temperature up to high where it has locked up the motor and is sending out all that water underneath. i would check your pan under your refrigerator to see if it needs to be dumped and then replace it back.
