Question about Refrigerators

Maytag Model ERSW22A side by side fridge periodically leaks water at the front of the fridge. Water appears to come from inside the freezer compartment. This only happens every few days, or once a day for 2 days and then not for a few days. What could be wrong? Pete

Sounds like you have a clogged defrost drain tube. removing back panel of freezer will give you acess to drain trough, melt away the ice with a hair dryer, youll find a drain hole under there somwhere,pouring boiling water down the drain will clear it pretty quickly( i use a steam machine purchased from the infomercials works awesome, after you clear it and all water drain down tube wrap a piece of solid copper wirearound the heater( black calrod heater right above the drain trough) and stick it in the whole maybe an inch or so. now everythime the heater comes on to defrost it will prevent the hole from freezing over

Maytag fridge side by side freezer door leaks water


If the insulation in the door has blown, it cannot be replaced. If there is a dispenser in the door, look at all the plastic parts for any splits or leaks. To test if it is the dispenser, turn off the water supply for a few days. If the water stops collecting in the door it's a good sign.

Water leaking from front base of freezer


Clean the drain pan and drain line in the back of the freezer section underneath the evaporator coil. Make sure water drains when you pour it in. If it doesn't - also clean drain tube on the back of the unit behind the cover. When done - put the tube exactly where it was.
Good luck! :)

Refrigerator leaking water


This sounds like the water line from the icemaker and the cool water reservior inside the refridgerator side. The line is a rigid plastic hose and could be a leak at one point that is small enough to allow water to run along the line. Also sounds like you have a humidity problem. Check the door seals and wipe them off and apply a thin coat of die-electric grease to the seal. this will help keep it pliable and soft.
The water in the bottom leaks into a trough that is made into the fridge. This usaully evaporates, This is for the auto-defrost. It keeps the water from getting on the floor.
Check to see if the outer door gets hot at the edges. If not, It may not be auto-defrosting.
I would first check the water line first as this seems to be a more serious issue right now. The line is probably loose at one of the connections between the ice maker and water reservior.

Samsung rs21wcns has a leak


I found my leak, after checking all lines, connectors, couplers, behind the second to bottom drawer from what appears to be a cooling resevoir. It appears the seams are slightly leaking on both sides. I found water pooling under the bottom drawer and then leaking out the front and followed it back. My Samsung is model RS2556SH

Water leaking underneath refrigerator/water freezing in bottom of freezer


I'm dealing with the same problem right now with the same refrigerator. The cold water tank (for the front dispenser) has a hole in it that leaks every time someone dispenses water from the front door. You will find the water tank behind the top slide-out drawer in the fridge. The leaked water flows down one of the water tubes through a hole in the bottom of the fridge and onto the floor. I'll bet you have the same problem. Good Luck.

Maytag side by side


I have a Maytag side by side MSD2456D and water is running out bottom of freezer door onto floor. There is ice on the freezer coils and there is what looks like a drain tube with a plastic wrapping. I think water is leaking there and freezing on coils until it defrosts ice.Water then appears to run down inside of freezer and out bottom door seal.

Does any one have a suggestion on repair parts. How about owners/repair manual
