Question about Maytag PSD2450G Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

So...I unplug the hole in the little tray...Only to discover that the water goes through the hole in the tray and into some other hole beneath the tray. This other hole (that looks like it's got a cap screwed onto it) is extremely difficult to access. But water is not going through it. Maybe down under it's still blocked with ice? I've been running the hair dryer for 10 minutes on high. It's a Maytag PSD264LGRW

My Maytag refrigerator drains water from the bottom.Seems congestion in drain line.How to fix it? Bobby,Tennessee


The drain is normally in a little tray in the back of the fridge. Remove the food and the shelves and you will often find a small piece of food or a lump of mould blocking the small hole. Clean it and pour a little water down it. If it doesn't move, use a length of auto wire and push it down the hole. It goes to an evaporator tray on top of the compressor, to be evaporated as steam.

Kenmore refrigerator model 795


Hi,

This is a simple fix but will take a little time to correct this. First of all, empty the freezer of food and shelving, ice maker if you have it also. The back wall in the freezer is a false wall, so gain access by removing screws and harness from top left corner. By the way turn off the unit or unplug it!! Now at the bottom of the unit far back you will see an ice glassier in the bottom middle is a drain hole that all the water is to exit after defrost. Well because its blocked with ice the water overfills and leaking into the refer section. Make sure you can use hot water to clear this out but make sure you cleaned out the entire drain system before reassembling this to restore cooling. Once clear you problem is solved.

Good Luck

Water leaking from freezer onto top shelf of frig. has to be wiped once a day.


You probably have a blocked or frozen drain hole in the freezer. This means that the water formed during defrost can't drain down to the evaporator tray beneath the fridge and instead goes through overflow holes into the refrigerator.

I posted about how I solved this problem in another post:

Leaks water inside from the ports or vents under freezer but in fridge


Your problem more than likely is a plugged defrost line in the freezer...The freezer goes through periodic defrost cyles to keep the coils from freezing up. The water catches in a trough pan in the freezer and flows through a drain hole to the bottom of the fridge where it evaporates. This drain hole perodically freezes up and the water accomulates under the freezer bottom until the water level reaches your vent ports to the fridge section. Open your freezer and on the bottom floor of your freezer you should see two screws near the front on either side. Remove them and then take out the bottom tray....this will expose the drain hole near the rear of the freezer compartment. You will more than likely have to remove ice under the tray in order to see the drain hole. Remove the lower back panel on the back of the refrigerator and you should be able to see the drain line coming from the freezer. Unplug the refrigerator before you begin work. It will take a little while for the drain line to thaw to allow liquid to flow to the bottom. I find a hair dryer pretty handy in speeding up the process. To verify you have unplugged the drain line you should be able to pour hot water in the drain hole in the freezer and see it come out at the rear of the fridge in tube line just above a little catch pan

My Delonghi A120LE Drips water not sure why


OK. This fixed my A120LE from leaking. First unplug the machine for safety. If you are looking at the back of the unit you need to take off the right side panel. I took off the all the panels but you could just take off the right side.

There is a reservoir on the top that collects condensation from the top coil. (shown in the circle) The drain hole on mine was clogged. If you stick a small screwdriver or paperclip in the hole to push the debris through it should start working properly again. I did this to mine yesterday and it hasn't leaked since!! Drain hole is shown here in close up picture. Unclogging this will allow the condensation to flow down to the main reservoir on the bottom where it will be evaporated in the AC exhaust.

Leaking water from freezer into fridge. Lately I have noticed water collecting in the bottom portion. I have discovered that the water in leaking from the three holes that connect it to the freezer. There...


Could be drain hole or tube from the drain hole to the evaporator tray is clogged with ice. Unplug refrigerator. Locate drain hole, use a hair drier to melt ice around drain hole, pour very hot water into it and let it stand. Soak up water with a paper towel after it has cooled. and repeat until water drains freely. I have used my compressed air can to blow the obstruction into the evaporator tray.

Freezer drain is plugged. How do I unplug it?


shut off unit. find drain hole. pour HOT(boiling hot) water about a cup. wait so it will melt the ice. now either use a air from air compressor, or a portable steamer to run air thru the hole, also can use a long flex bar(like cloths hanger) or a flex pvc hose.
U also have to make sure your condensor coil is clean. dust at bottom of the fridge usuallu cloggs the drain as it normally drains to the boottom tray located beneath the fridge.

GE Side by Side Refrigerator seeping water onto door


Hey, thanks for the photos. Have seen this problem before. Seal the recess area, at the front edge and the front corners, with a little clear silicone, to prevent water from getting behind the stainless steel door panel. I've heard people say to seal the rectangular holes along the bottom side of the door panel recess cut out also, but that shouldn't be necessary, as if you still had water behind the panel, it would just then seep down behind the SS door panel and continue to cause problems. The real cure is to keep water from getting in there in the first place.

Estro magic delux (now saeco i think) water leaks below brew unit


There is a small metal plate with holes below the square funnel shape on the brew unit. This plate has a pink rubber seal and a stem that goes up into the brew unit. The stem is knurled with ridges and is attached to a screw on the plate. The screw has become loose and the plate is not held tight against the seal. Turn the knurled knob clockwise until it tightes the plate against the bottom of the unit. Make sure the plate is centered as I believe there is a slight lip that it recesses into. Should stop the water in the grounds collector. Of course the seal must be in good condition. Paul
