Hi Mr Zick,

The symptoms you are describing would indicate the defrost drain is clogged. I have put together some instructions on how to clear this up. Take a look at the link below and let me know if it was helpful.

Water build up


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that you are getting puddles of water in the back of one of the bottom shelf and in one of the vegetable drawers in your Frigidaire refrigerator. I suggest putting the crisper drawer control on the Hi humidity setting. This should allow more moisture to escape out of the drawer and not cause as much puddling. Also, check your water filter and make sure it is not leaking, as well as any moisture from the ice maker. If further troubleshooting is needed, I ask that you please leave the model number of your washer. Typically, you can find this number inside your refrigerator on the liner walls. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

You have to remove the bottom drawer, remove one of the drawer slider mounts on the freezer wall, and remove the rear panel. If yours has an ice maker you will have to disconnect it and remove it also. Unplug it so the water valve does not dump water on you while you are working inside.

Water accumulating in bottom of refrig under veggie drawers. Something plugged up? Thank you for any advice. - John.


Hello John,

That water is from the melting frost of the automatic defrost cycle. Their is drain in the freezer behind the back wall under the evaperator coil that is blocked, so instead of defrost water draining it's pooling in the freezer or in some case espically on models with the freezer on the top,the water is leaking from the freezer vents into the fresh food compartment.
The way to clear the drain is remove back plate and remove all ice build up and GENTLY make a small hole in drain through then totally flush w/warm water.
The exact location of drain is under the coil behind back freezer plate in the center

I hope has helped answer your question,

The drain for the auto defrost water is plugged up somewhere.You will need to look at the very back and bottom inside the freezer to see if you can locate it and clean it out.Also you may have to pull the refrig out from the wall and try to get to it from the back.Hope this aleast gets you looking in the right direction.

Hi,

The defrost drain is located just under the cooling coils in the back of the freezer. You will need to unload the food and remove the shelves from the freezer. Take the back panel off from inside the freezer and you will see a hole just below the coils. Flush it with hot water using a turkey baster or small hose. See the link below for more details.

Leaking water


you need to remove the bottom drawer and check your drain in the back each time it goes into defrost it sounds like the water is running to the bottom of the unit instead of down the drain

The drain line that removes water after the defrost cycle is plugged. Instead of draining down the hose and ending up in the pan underneath the fridge, it is draining to the back on the inside, ending up under the drawers. Pull the pan out from the bottom, locate the hose that empties water there. Blow air up it. Compressed works the best. It may be plugged with ice as well, so turn it off for a little before you try this, to thaw the ice. If this doesn't work or you cant do it, then you need to remove the back panel in the freezer compartment, find the drain hole and stick something in it, like a piece of wire to remove the blockage. A good way to test this, is after you have found the drain hole, pour a little water in it, it should pour out into the pan underneath.
