The tube is at the bottom of the evaporator drain trough. Open your freezer door, pull the bottom 2 containers or shelves out and you should be able to see the back of the freezer. There will be 8 vertical slots at the botton, and that is where the drain starts. Tjhe quickest way to clear it if it's frozen is to get a 1500 watt hair dryer or a squeeze bottle of very hot water and clean the drain out. Or you can shut the unit down, open the doors and let it sit overnight. Be sure to put some towels down, as it might get messy, Once it's thawed, you shouldn't have any more troubvle with it. Hope that helps!

I HAVE A MAYTAG AUTOMATIC ELECTRONIC DEFROST CONTROL REFRIGATOR MODEL MSD2272VEB00. EVERY FEW DAYS WATER LEAKED FROM UNDER THE REFRIGERATOR ONTO THE FLOOR FROM WHAT APPEARS TO BE AT THE FRONT RIGHT SIDE...


Mostly the drip-pan can't be accessed from the front.

The drip-pan isn't.
It is in fact an evaporator. It collects the considerable amount of water from the auto defrost function and holds it until the heat from the motor and compressor can evaporate it. The water is transferred from the inside by a drain tube.

A blocked drain tube is not unusual and is generally fairly simple to clear. Often it is a stray vegetable that causes the trouble and sometimes it is a buildup of ice. If the water cannot escape a wet floor is usually the result.

Our fridge recently suffered from the same trouble. I used a plastic covered wire coat hanger to clear the drain of ice - very carefully...

During the defrost cycle our refrigerator leaks water from the freezer side out the front into the floor of the kitchen. Where could it be coming out and what will fix it?


The water from the melting ice during defrost should be guthered from the drip drain pan which is under the evaporator pipe coil and is passing though the drain tube which is conected to the dip pan and should end out on the back of the fridge to the compressor to evaporate. The problem posibly is that the drain tube is goggle either from ice or from dirt or both and the water since it can not end to compressor it overfrow from drip pan inside the freezer. So you can clean the drip pan and drain tube using a wire rod and problem will be solved.

I have water collecting on the bottome of my side by side refrigerator on the frigerator sided un the crisper.


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
Actually the leaking water is from the evaporator coil unit....(it is located at the back wall or underneath the freezer compartment). Under normal conditions,Self-defrost refrigerators usually dispose the water generated during the defrost cycle through a tube or channel that directs the water a pan (Known as Drip pan), commonly below the refrigerator unit....
The channel or tube is clogged and the water is leaking to the refrigerator/freezer unit, so you need to clear that blockage/contamination....Once the blockage is removed, the generated water will move through that channel/tube directly to the drip pan and there will no water on the floor in the refrigerator/freezer compartment. This is all you need to do....

The freezer is not cooling.


Hello,

1. You need to use thermometers. Test the freezer temp for a while. Then the refrigerator compartment for a while.

2. Does the compressor run AND also the evaporator fan run (the later of which is located in the back wall of the freezer compartment)? They should be.

3. Do you see any water down in your drip pan that should be either located under your refrigerator (accessible by removing the grill at the bottom front of the refrigerator, which just snap off and back on), or ontop the compressor at the back? If there is no water at all, based on your symptoms, you could have a case of frozen defrost water at the cup that allows this drainage to go through the cup and then tube, back of the refrigerator and down a tube into the drip pan. Check for ice in and around that cup which is located at the top rear of the refrigerator compartment. If that is clogged, chances are ice has formed, blocking where freezer air gets into the refrigerator compartment at the upper rear of the refrigerator compartment.

If this is what has been going on, what I do is...first unplug the refrigerator...then take food out of the freezer and put it in the kitchen sink basins and blanket or towel over it to keep it froze. I also move out of the refrigerator compartment the food most likely to spoil quick... like the milk, and some other stuff, and to clear away stuff in the area of the defrost drain cup. Then I use a hair dryer to thaw for a bit back at that cup. Then when I can tell that the cup is thawed...then I pry off the flexible rubber or plastic cup and then use a piece of tubing I carry with me, and put the tubing (you can buy this at home centers, hardware stores and auto stores) and jamb it in the defrost drain tube hole and blow and see if you are able to blow out any gook (if your tube is a little ill-fitting you may have to wad a rag or toweling aroudn your inserted tube to get a better seal when you blow). When you know you are able to blow through the line and see evidence of it in the drip pan below, then you can replace the drain cup. You may also be able to do this job from reverse by simply removing the drain tube from below, where it sets in (just above, actually) the drip pan below, and then blow *up* the drain tube. After doing this, knowing the tube and cup are clear...Then place the hairdryer in the freezer compartment...shutting the door on the cord, and let it run inside to defrost the refrigerator. Then the thawing ice from the evaporator coils and maybe around the fan will thaw and run out into the cup and down the tube into the drip pan. Look to see, after you have been defrosting for say 15 minutes, to see if you are getting lots of water to now thaw and drain into the drip pan below. If you see such evidence, then you will know that this was what your trouble was all about.

Hope this help

Ice buildup in freezer drip pan and water overflow when in defrost mode. water drips out the front bottom freezer door. Maytag model msd2736gr


Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.

Drip pan needs emptying; had repairman out for other issues, now fridge keeps overflowing


The accumulated ice you saw is of course the source of the water. The refrigerator will eventually rid itself of the excess ice and the problem will therefore disappear on it's own after a while. The drip pan is normally filled with only a small amount of water, and that is dried up by the condenser cooling fan under the fridge. The pan is removable from most units, but not without making a mess. I suppose you can make and clean up the mess one time and be done with it.

Water leaking from refrigerator


Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.

If you just want to clean it you may can access it from the rear behind the cardboard backing. If it's overflowing your water filter may be stopped up or you may have had an excessive amount of frost one time.
