My fridge leaks underneath

My new refridgerator has been leaking on the floor since I got it. The repairman put a new door on it and it still leaks. He cannot find the problem.

Hello,

Self-defrosting refrigerators dispose of the water generated during the defrost cycle, usually via a tube or channel that directs the water to a pan at the bottom of the refrigerator. From the pan, the water normally evaporates. (See a more detailed explanation of this in the How Things Work section of our website). If the tube or channel is clogged or obstructed, the water backs up and leaks into the inside of the refrigerator compartment. Then the water builds up at the bottom, inside of the refrigerator. When the water has built up for a time it may spill out of the front of the door opening. To fix this problem, clear the drain tube or channel and allow the defrost water to flow down to the drain pan.

Hope this helpout......

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.......

Whirlpool refridgerator is leaking water on the freezer side (side by side refridgerator) onto the floor. The ice machine was overflowing with ice and has frozen ice in the ice maker that won't budge. We...


WAS IT LEAKING FROM INSIDE THE FREEZER OR FROM BOTTOM OF FRIDGE? ONCE IN A WHILE YOU NEED TO TAKE OUT THE ICE BIN AND DUMP ICE OUT AND CLEAN IT. HOW CAN THE ICE MACHINE OVERFLOW WITH ICE WHEN THE ICE IN THE TRAY WON'T BUDGE? NEED CLARIFICATION. SOUNDS LIKE YOU EITHER HAVE A BAD ICE MAKER MODULE OR THE SOLENOID FOR THE ICE ON THE WATER VALVE IS BAD.

Leaking water on the front corner of the freezer side. We have turned off the water to the icemaker and have turned off the icemaker. Still leaking, not fast, but each day I clean up a puddle.


That is from your defrost drain either being clogged with food, or covered with ice. Behind the back wall in the freezer is a drain that empties underneath the fridge. If that drain gets blocked or froze over then the water will dump into the floor of the freezer and out the door gasket. Look in your freezer floor for ice build up. If you don't see anything like that or if you think the water is coming from underneath the fridge, then it is your condensate pan underneath. They crack sometimes.

Water comes from under drawers on fridge side, leaks onto floor


If leak continued then you must have a faulty cut off valve. Check and tighten valve. Also, check the hose that runs underneath the fridge for cuts or holes.

"jennycub" sounds like a drain clog in the freezer compartment above. remove the freezer rear panel and totally defrost the evaporator area, directly under the evap you see( under all taht ice) a small drain hole that has become frozen over, try defrosting with either a hair dryer( not a heat gun too much heat youl melt everything) or by pouring hot water donw the drain until you get a free flow of water down the tube. after its clear reassemble and you should be fine. very common problem( easy to detect. water on the floor of freezer compartment) as far as the other posting by" humblerumble", ive seen where the drain tube under the refig has pushed a hole into the drain pan under the refrig, in which case it will only leak after a defrost cycle, with the kickplate removed grab a flashlight and look under the unit for the drain pan as you pur water into the back of the freezer sect to trace water flow

Water leak


What's happening is when the fridge goes into defrost water goes thru the drain and is seeping into the crack by the damper which will run into the fridge section.  Why?  The drain doesn't come down far enough for all the water to go down the drain tube.  Frigidaire has a new drain that is longer and will prevent this problem.
