Where did the water come from? if it is pooling up in the floor of the unit and making an ice dam then your drain is clogged. whirlpools made by woods in canada were bad about this and you can get a kit from them that MIGHT fix this but I have done many that it didn't help. follow the water to find were it is coming from is the only way to know how to stop it. the wiring harness might not be available. go to your local or online parts supply with the model number and check it out

Manual required ,what do the 3 lights mean ,after defrosting it ,turned back on and and it throws the circuit breaker


any electrical device that throws a circuit brakes is no longer safe to use ..unplug and call for qualified assessment /repair

best guess
water leak at the lower casing possibly
due to rust or ice expansion in the panel joins
or clogged drain hole to evaporator

water may be leaking onto the motor and electrical wires at the bottom ............might be up for a new unit

Why is my fridgidaire freezer leaking water and the defroster not working?


Hi Friend, this is Z. Thank you for your post!

I understand your Frigidaire freezer is leaking and not defrosting; however is water leaking from behind, front or underneath? Also, did you notice any error codes, noises, or other strange functions prior to this issue? With this information I can assist you better in pinpointing the problem.

GE side by side. Water leaking from bottom of freezer door. Fridge is cold. Freezer is fine. Ice maker fine. Only problem is the leaking water


Water leaking from bottom of freezer door.
It means that the freezer door is not closed will see the rubber frame it maybe broken some where or twisted .
If it's broken it must be changed but if it's twisted you can use some medical cotton roll it by your hands like a pen and insert it behind the frame.
I hope that help you. so sorry for my bad English.

Ice keeps forming on the bottom of the freezer - like a leak on the back side flows into the bottom toward the door.


When a refrigerator leaks water like yours, it is common for the problem to be nothing more than a clogged defrost drain. When the unit defrosts itself, the frost melt water drips into a pan underneath the evaporator in the freezer, and goes through a tube from there to the bottom outside of the unit. Since the water cant go down this drain, it backs up on the freezer floor, then eventually the kitchen floor.

Water leaking at bottom of freezer door where water line goes into door


DRAIN IS STOPPED UP! IS THIS A TOP AND BOTTOM OR A SIDE X SIDE?

1 Answer

Ice is forming at the bottom of the freezer and freezing the bottom draw shut. it doesn't appear to be leaking and the door shuts properly. it's supposed to be a frost free freezer....


Causes:

High humidity in the immediate area causing condensation to freeze at the door opening

A frozen defrost drain line not allowing water to drain off when the unit is in defrost

A bad door gasket causing an air leak

Some freezers have a heated perimeter to reduce condensation. If the stop working, moisture can accumulate arounf the door perimeter and freeze.

Leaving the door open too long or something obstructing the door

Water leak


probably the defrost drain blocked. remove back panel from inside freezer and melt ice off with hairdryer and follow up with hot water till water flows away freely.
you may find all the pipework iced up and if so you have a problem with defrost system.
an alternative way is to switch off for 24 hours and leave doors open

Whirlpool FUF20DPARWH Freezer


Was the door left open for a long period of time.? Sometimes this causes so much ice that it re freezes and can't clear the drain. The only solution is to unplug and let sit with doors open for at least 24 hours. to get all the ice off the coils. Then use a pipe cleaner on the drain then use a turkey baster to force water through. then a mild bleach solution. Check the door gaskets if they are ripped or loose or the door warped and not sealing tight this will also cause this problem. If this still doesn' t solve the problem it is probably a defrost problem Usually the timer or defrost thermostat.

Maytag side by side freezer leaking water and icing in bottom


Defrost drain system is plugged and not draining out the back and into the drain collector. There is normally an air trap in this drain line under the back and behind a fiber removable panel. Check this trap and make sure it is clear of any blockage. You will then have to defrost the freezer and clear out the ice. Don't forget to replace the back fiber panel.
