Whirlpool Top Mount Refridgerator is Leaking

Water is accumulating underneath the crispers at the bottom of the fridge. I believe that the water is dripping down from where the cold air comes into the bottom part of the fridge. I cleaned out the ice out of the bottom part of the freezer compartment, I thought that solved the problem, but it didn't. Any help would be great. Thanks.

The problem lies behind the freezer back wall panel, remove the panel, the ground (green) wire on the top left corner and the icemaker

all the ice build up under the evaperator will have to be removed, a good hair drier works well, direct the air at the center hole in the bottom of the metal panel all the ice out of the center hole will need to be melted out to be a success it will take a little time. you can pour some water down the hole and if you hear it going into the bottom drain pan then the tube is clear of ice.

check the ice door flap where ice drops into a glass.sometimes the flap doesn't close completely and allows heat to enter threw the flap.this causes frost to build and melt thus you have water you can't explain. hope this helps.

FRIDGE IS LEAKING LOTS OF WATER UNDER THE CRISPERS


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# GLHT184TJ, is leaking water underneath the crispers. First, make sure the door is closed as well as you are not opening it frequently or for long periods of time. Secondly, make sure all foods and containers are covered. Lastly, make sure that all vegetables have been dried, if you have washed them, before storing them in the crisper drawers. All of the above can cause moisture inside your refrigerator, which can accumulate at the bottom of your refrigerator. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

overflows into the ref. or freezer or on floor

For some time, water was accumulating on the floor


before you call check the bottom of your freezer, if it is full of ice, yuou more than likely have a clogged defrost drain
remove the back panel of the freezer and ensure the drain is free and clear,
check the fill tube of the ice machine to be properly installed

Water under crispers in my fridge


If the freezer is on top then empty out the freezer and remove the bottom and back liner of the freezer compartment usually phillips screws. In the back you will see the freezer coils along with a defrost element. Below these two items u will see a drip tray that collects water from the coils on defrost cycle, in the center of the pan will be a drain hole that connects to a hose that leads to a pan under the refrigerator.Normally the water is collected there and evaporated. The hole in the tray in the freezer is clogged. Thaw it and clean it until you can pour water in it and it goes to the pan down below. please rate me

Water on the bottom shelf of the Refridgerator


Has the refrigerator got a wet inner back?
Ff this is wet, adjust it until this solid ice 'blobs', bt not encrusted, like in a freezer
The refrigerator may not be cool enough and the natural warm moisture allowed into the cool compartment when the door is open is condensing into fluid before it is cooling sufficiently to suspend the moisture as a vapour. If the cool compartment is cool enough, any warm air admitted ill be chilled before it is allowed to condense, keeping the refridgerator dry.
However, the only drawback is that you will have to monitor it to prevent the build up of excesive ice.
Also, whether the refridgerator is either empty of full willaffe the day to day operation.
Hope this helps.

Water Is accumulating at the bottom of my fridge....below the vegetable/fruit crispers. The fridge however contiues to keep things cold.


The automatic defroster is supposed to drip down a tube and deposit water into a tray underneath the refrigerator. If that tube becomes clogged with either ice or mold, water is supposed to drip down the back of the refrigerator and go under the crispers, but there is a drain under there that takes it to the tray under the refrigerator. That drain might get clogged with mold or food.

So my suggestion is, try to clear out the drains under the crispers. More difficult, remove the floor of the freezing compartment and clear out the drain there. If it is severely clogged with ice under there, you have a defrosting problem.

In this hot, muggy weather you are likely to get lots of condensation. Good luck.

GE refridgerator


If the unit has an ice maker or water dispensor, etc. there's always a chance a connection is loose or a valve is leaking by. If no other water is hooked up to the refer, then the defrost cycle water that should drain down to the bottom underneath pan is what is likely. You may have to take the inside rear panels off to see if the drain line is plugged up, that would allow water from the defrosting of the coils to drip inside the fridge vice outside like it should.
