I have a Zanussi ZEBF 262W. Works fine, had it for about 4 years but lately I find first thing in the morning, a small pool of water on the ground near the left front side of the freezer - only about 1/4 cupfull. Not sure where it's coming from - obviously from the Zanussi somewhere. Any thoughts? Thanks
The likely cause is the drainage outlet is blocked by dirt deposits or frozen ice behind the plastic panel inside the freezer compartmrnt. Melted ice overflows the tray insteady of being discharged through the tray's drainage outlet tube.
To check if the tray drainage hole is blocked, it is easy to take off the plastic panel inside the freezer compartment by undoing the six small screws.
Please don't forget to switch off the electric before you attempt to clean the blockage. Good Luck

I assume the pump is not running at night. If the pump is higher than the pool, and the inlet and outlet to the pool are both under water, then you have a small leak. This could be allowing the water to leak out of the line. Or, if the leak is higher than the pool surface it is allowing air to leak into the line, which allows the prime to run down into the pool.

Has this thing a separate frezer and cooler compartment.
Have tried to completely defrost and clean that thing.
At times like in airco's the pinch valve for the cooling process to effect (expansion) is stuck frozen, or very seldom broke.
Ok there is a drain pan under the evap. coil under the fan that may be clogged and full of ice there is a 3/4" hole the water drains out of that needs cleared if there is a puddle of ice over it , the ice will also effect the airflow traveling down the duct to the fresh food section of the unit.
If there is no ice puddle at the bottom of the refrigerator then make sure the unit is cooling well by making sure it has been running for 10 min. or so and checking the coil in the freezer , it should have a small layer of frost on it showing its getting cold the whole way through it. Let me know how this works.
It sounds like you have a plugged defrost
drain line. This is where the water goes to in the bottom of your
freezer when it goes through the defrost (removal of ice from the
freezer coil) cycle. It sounds like that hole is plugged and now the
water/ice has now frozen in the vent that lets air circulate down into
your refrigerator compartment. What I usually do in this case is to
unplug the refrigerator, empty out the freezer compartment. Usually I
also end up either pulling off the back panel or the bottom panel (in
the freezer compartment) Looking for that defrost drain hole and
actually I use a hair dryer. I can sometimes do this also by pouring
small amounts of HOT tap water onto it and then sopping/absorbing it
away with a sponge or dishcloth. I repeat this until I get the water to
go down the drain tube.
the reason is probably that the drain hole in the freezer (i assume this is a frost-free type) is blocked.
take off the rear panel of the freezer and you will probably see a block of ice at the bottom. melt off with a hairdryer and free the drain with hot water making sure that water flows freely away
