Make sure the door is closing properly, that nothing is trapped in the door seal, and that the seal isn't torn or distorted. The seals are there to stop moist external air getting in then dropping its load of moisture as it cools. A.

No. There is, however, a drain hole in the back center that tends to get plugged. Remove the lower two drawers and see if it is plugged. It drains to a pan under the unitand behind the kickpanel

SOURCE: my ge fridge model TBX18k lg has water build

Remove the food from the freezer and then remove the rear freezer wall . Should be 2-4 screws and maybe a clip on each side on the top vent . Once the panel is removed , useing a hairdryer , defrost the tray below the coils until you can see the drain hole . Defrost the drain hole until water begins to flow into the hole . Use a small hose inserted into the hole and blow out any debris which has accumulated . You can also use hot water to help defrost the drain hole . Once completed , reinstaal the panel and of course , food .

Water build up


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that you are getting puddles of water in the back of one of the bottom shelf and in one of the vegetable drawers in your Frigidaire refrigerator. I suggest putting the crisper drawer control on the Hi humidity setting. This should allow more moisture to escape out of the drawer and not cause as much puddling. Also, check your water filter and make sure it is not leaking, as well as any moisture from the ice maker. If further troubleshooting is needed, I ask that you please leave the model number of your washer. Typically, you can find this number inside your refrigerator on the liner walls. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Formation of water


If your refer has a watering device on the outside of the door then it could be that the resevour is cracked and leaking into the refer. It is usually behind the meat drawer ot somewhere in the lower part of the refer. If you do not have a water dispenser but an ice maker then it is posible that the ice maker is leaking. but that is not that common. There is one more possibility that it is just condensation from the lettuce crisper or the drawers below where fresh vegies would be. If that is turned up too high or low then condnsation can accur and then leak to the bottom of the refer. Check these things out. and you can check you owners manual if you have one. you can download a manual for free online also for your brand and model #. they will have a trouble shooting section for this comon problem. Good Luck

Purchased in 2002 and is starting to freeze in the


Check the back of the fruit and vegi drawers. If theres a slot for an intake port try closeing it (if adjustable) Check thermostat setting for fridge and adjust to a lower setting.
Finally make sure door closes and seals closed, clean gasket with mixture of white vinegar and water (1 cup vinegar to 1 gallon warm water). If this fails internal thermostat may need replacing.

Fridge side is warm at 60 degrees, ice build up at very bottom shelf next to vegies control, freezer temp. switch springs back when attempt to increase to level 3 or higher.


EASY FIX .TAKE ALL FOOD OUT.

UNPLUG FRIDGE FOR 24HOURS WITH DOORS OPEN .

CLEAN UP ALL THE WATER IT WILL LEAK ON YOUR FLOOR.

IT WILL WORK FOR ABOUT A YEAR OR TWO BUT WILL HAPPEN AGAIN.

A MORE PERMENANT FIX WILL TAKE SOME TIME. TRY THIS FIRST.

Water collecting at bottom of vegie drawers--water dripping from freezer to refrig


Drain is frozen over, most likely. Defrost the drain completely and verify that the drain is clear. That should fix the problem.

Water build up in the bottom of the refridgerator under the fruit and vegtable cripser draws. maytag model #MTB1954ARW


Water build up under the fresh food drawers is usually associated with an air intrusion from the exterior. Warm air intruding into the fresh food compartment creates excess condensation, which eventually accumulates on the bottom.
Some causes are:
1. Internal obstruction, not allowing door(s) to close tightly enough.
2. Deteriorated door seal, (torn, pinched, deformed, misaligned,).
3. Light not turning off when door closed,(faulty door switch, misaligned door, loose hinges allowing door to drop).
Make sure all drawer have nothing obstructing their closure, and door shelves have nothing extending beyond the support bars.
Other less obvious causes may be creating this issue also and are not normally addressable by the novice servicer.

Hope this helps find the cause.
