SOURCE: refrigerator leaking water out

being in the uk, i don't know this appliance specifically so take this as guidence. there are two places where water can come from. at the rear of the fridge there should be a gully at the bottom of the evaporator wall - the part that frosts up. in the middle of this gully is a drain and this is likely blocked. push something flexible down it and check blockage is cleared by pouring a small amount of water in the gully and see it flows freely away. good idea to occasionly pour a small amount of dilute bleach down it now and again to keep it sweet. the other place for water to come from is if some of the contents of the fridge are touching the back wall. when it defrosts the water tends to divert onto the shelves

my kenmore frig side by side did the same I flushed the freezer drain like the instruction book says but it leaked on the floor after A week.
I pulled out the frig unplugged it in the back I removed the bottom black cardboard grille and vacuumed the underneath and removed the black drain tube and flushed water through it and put it back that solved the problem and took about 15 minutes to do I hope this helps people who are having repeat trouble.

SOURCE: problem with kenmore side by side leaking

2 things could be wrong first is you compressor running if is not running you have to check the overload to see if it tripp if it did it will sound like a babys rattle just repl and compressor should kick back on if is running then is you evaporator motor running if is not then check for volatge at the wires if you get 118 then repl your motor. is the unit defrosting is there a lot of ice on the back cover it might not be so 3 thing might be failing 1 timer 2 defrost thermostat 3 heater coil call a tech to have those check out thanks

SOURCE: water leaking inside of refrigerator from freezer

IT SEEMS LIKE YOU HAVE A CLOGGED DRAIN . CHECK YOUR CONDECER COILS BEHIND KICK PLATE .. AFTER THAT YOU CAN UNPLUG FRIDGE FOR 24 HRS WITH DOORS OPEN AND SOULD DEFROST ENOUGH TO CLEAR DRAIN . IF NOT . DEPENDING ON MODEL YOU SOULD BE ABLE TO GET THROUGH DRAIN THROUGH MOST FREEZERS .

Water leaking into the refrigerator


Hi, You have a drain plugged in the frezer. Your model # doesn't come up but what you need to do is remove the rear anel in the freezer and clear the ice. If the floor of the freezer has two screws holding it, remove it as well.
Please check the model# again and I can assist you further. There is an after market deat transfer strip you might need to add to prevent this from reaccuring.

Thanks

My refrige leaks water on the floor from the freezer side on the left. I turned the water off and disconnected the water line. Still once or twice a week the refrige leaks water on the floor.


Sounds like ice build up on the freezer coils. Disconecting the water line doesn't stop regrigerant from flowing through the coils since they are still working. Easiest way would be a hair dryer to melt the built up frozen consensation. After you should see no water on the floor and you can turn the water back on (i assume the water is for your ice water and ice cube tray).

Water on my floor


Is it the bottom or coming out the door at the bottom? When your seal is bad it will leak, mine leaks only on handwashables and delicates. I have had to have my seal replaced twice in the three years i have had one, and the last seal was not put on right and leaks.
