Hello,

at the back of the fridge there is a water drain hole. this will be blocked. you will have to unblock by pushing a thin wire etc down it, then pour a little warm water down to confirm it has been unblocked. if otherwise

There are two issues that may cause leaks near the door of your fridge. The fridge door may not close in full or the rubber gasket which encompasses the door frame may be clogged or torn, thus causing condensation and leaks. To repair this problem, you need to discover the faulty component. If the gasket is dirty, clean it by rinsing with a sponge. Check if an item in the refrigerator is preventing the door from closing properly. If the gasket is somehow impaired, replace it. When buying a new gasket, it is best to buy one that matches your fridge model or type of door. The more general the gasket, the harder it is to install it.

If the leak caused by the gasket, you may have to check the door and ensure that it closes tightly. If it does not close well, you may use the door screws and bolts to fix the problem. Another remedy is to put the refrigerator at a slight angle. Some fridges have adjustable legs, but if your model does not have such, you may want to buy some wooden shims or sheets of plywood and put them beneath the fridge.
Fridge Leaks due to the Drain Pan
The drain pan functions to catch water from condensation so that it does not leak over the floor of your kitchen. If the drain pan is somehow damaged, it may be the reason why you have a puddle of water around the fridge. The pan is located underneath the fridge. Pull it off, drain the condensed water from it, and check if there are any punctures into it. If there are some, you should buy a new pan or somehow repair the current one. One possible way to check your drain pan is to fill it with tap water once you have cleaned it.

Hope this helpout.......

Model rb17ka-1al food section not cooling but freezer works fine


That is gonna be a bad fan motor up top OR the drain pluggs up and puddles water between the two sections. The freezer works fine but no cold air can get to the fresh section below. Seen it. Thaw here out and yank out the floorboard of the freezer. Clear the drain and oil the fan motor. No parts needed.

Magic chef frost free refrigerator leaking water down the rear appears to be coming from the freezer compartment water puddles under veg. bin and then out onto the floor do not see a drain hole in...


Generally you have to remove the back panel of the freezer. There you will find the freezer coil and fan. the defrost water drips off the coil during defrost and gravity flows down thru the drain. Hole should be in center of unit. Those drains plug up. clear drain.and make sure panels go back on correctly

Water drains from freezer compartment into refridgerator


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

Our Magic Chef fridge model # MCBR1000W does not seem to be keeping the fridge part cool enough, but still keeps the items in the freezer section frozen. The compressor is working, so not sure why this is...


yes the freezer door not closing properly will effect the refrigerator. also check in the freezer back wall and bottom for any frost buildup. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.

Refridgerator leaking water


You will have to check the defrost drain in the freezer by removing either the back or bottom of the freezer . Thaw ice if found in freezer and check to see if the drain hole is clear. Do not use anything to chip at the ice. Clear ice by warming it with warm water or possibly a hair dryer.
