Defrost drain is located in the back of the refrigerator. Check loop or trap, it may be plugged. You must remove the back cover panel to see the drain line and to clear it. After the drain trap is cleared you may have to defrost the freezer section to clear the ice caused by backup from the plugged trap.

Frigidaire side by side refrigerator is leaking water


I assume you are talking about water leaking from the freezer onto the floor. It is most likely that the defrost drain is blocked in the freezer causing the water to drain through the air vents. You will most likely have to remove the rear panel in the freezer and pour hot water in the drain trough until the drain clears up and the water drains down the drain tube.

I have a Kenmore Coldspot Model 106.70182000 that is leaking water from the freezer into the refrigerator. Any ideas? Thanks!


Hello,

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, then totally flush w/warm water.
The exact location of drain is under the coil behind back freezer plate in the center

Good luck

I hope this helps you to stop that leak,

Water is leaking from Air diffuser into the refrigerator.


your drain line from the freezer that runs down to the evaporator drain pan next to the compressor is clogged. you will need defrost the entire freezer then take the back panel off to pour hot water down the drain line. this might take 30 minutes or so. once the water will drain down the drain you have fixed the leak.

Started leaking water accumulated on bottom shelf in lower level. now top freezer takes 2 days to freeze ice, bottom freezer vent clogged.


The drain is clogged. When the drain clogs it can also clogs the airflow vents. Remove the back wall of the freezer to access the drain. Remove all the ice blocking the drain and the vents. Then use a trukey baser to force hot water down the drain until water flows freely. Then mix water with baken soda and pour it down the drain. http://www.appliance-repair-it.com/refrigerator-leaking.html

Hotpoint. Water is leaking from behind light bulb


The drain hose in the back of your freezer is frozen shut. The water you see is coming from the defrost cycle. Turn off the refrigerator. Remove the floor from your freezer and remove/thaw all of the ice. Locate the drain in the back of the freezer. It may be behind the back panel. Thaw the drain until water flows freely through it. Reassemble the freezer, and you are back in business.

Kenmore Refridgerator leaking water into refridgerator compartment from freezer compartment


You most likely have a clogged drain. When you freezers goes into defrost every 8 to 10 hours. The frost that is melted during the defrost drains from the freezer either down through the fridge or out the back and down. Either way it drains into a pan under the fridge. This tube is either clogged or the drain it's self inside the freezer is. Most of the time I find peas stopping the water from draining from the freezer. When the water can't drain it leaks through the bottom of the freezer into the fresh food section of the fridge. You will need to fix this because it will cause other problems. The water that cant drain from the freezer refreezes and will end up destroying the foam in the bottom of the freezer. Water will also leak onto the controls located in the part between the freezer and fresh food section ruining you controls.

Freezer leaks water even after water supply turned off


Remove the food from the lower portion of the freezer and remove the 2 screws which hold the rear freezer panel on . Remove the panel and use a hair dryer to defrost the ice built up over the drain . Once you see the black drain hole , concentrate on defrosting the hole . Once defrosted , the ice water will drain into the hole . I would use a small hose inserted into the drain and blow thru , to remove any debris built up inside the drain . Reinstall the panel and food .

Leaking water from freezer side-by-side GE refrigerator


Hi, It sounds like the defrost drain is plugged. You will need to remove the rear inside panel in the freezer and unp,ug the drain. Once you remove the rear panel, you should see a collestion of ice under the evaporator coil. Locate the drain hole and clear the ice. Flush the drain hole out with hot water to make sure it will drain. You might have to run a wire through the drain or you can flush water through it with a baesting serienge.

I hope this helsp you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Viking freezer leaking


you have a clogged drain, it is either clogged with ice or some kind of debris, thaw the freezer out and push a length of weed trimmer line down the drain. The drain is accessible by removing the back wall of the inside of the freezer. If there is no clog then the drain may be freezing up, if that is the case, take a piece of 14 gauge romex wire and loop it several times around the heating element at the bottom of the evaporator and push a few inches of it into the drain, this will get hot and transfer heat when it goes into a defrost cycle which is where the water is coming from in the first place
