Leaking at the freezer


I would look for an air leak in the freezer, if you have frost building up in leaking areas and the temperature in the house gos up then the frost will melt and create water dripping from the freezer. I hope this helps

JENN AIRE LEAKING WATER ON FLOOR. NOT SUPPLY LINE PROBLEM. HELP


Open freezer, remove lower crisper & look for solid ice on freezer floor & area at rear of freezer. If present, defrost drain is restricted. Depending on make & model remove ice, remove rear wall and clear defrost drain trough and drain path. Verify by removing kick panel, pour a cup of near boiling water through drain and watch as it drains into pan. Once clear, pour one ounce of bleach into drain tube. Also check as water is draining into pan that the pan is not leaking due to pan cracks. This solution is based on the fact that you are stating no hoses are bad.

Kitchen Aid KTRC22EK leak inside refridgerator


It sounds like the drain for the defrost water is pluged. You can remove the back panel inside the freezer(ice maker will have to coe out first) and access the drain in the rear center of the freezer. Check the drain. It can be defrsted with a hair dryer(shut off the referigerator first) good luck, snugglepants

First lets decide where your leak actually is.

Areas to consider:
This is mostlikely a stopped up drain pan. A cold area that is not suppose to be cold likewhen you have a freezer coil that is suppose to be defrosting and is not... Seebelow for a more complete ideas list of things to check under Possibility.

The drain pan drain line is themost common. Inspect it and repair as needed, maybe its just a wrapper over the exit hole of the pan.
Some more Possibility's:

1 There is a drain that carries away the water under the cooling coils. Thesecoils are in the freezer section. Its most likely clogged or froze up.

2 The ice maker could be letting water leak all the way down look for an icy trail from the ice maker area.

3 Door gaskets are not sealing especially on the bottom of the door. Thisallows warmer air into the fridge section and it is condensation on floor underthe crisper.

If you check all of these items and still cant find it please post back andtell me what you did find. So I can help you more. Please rate me as much aspossible as Im trying to keep my average up and do the things that willactually educate and help people.

THANK you for using fixya and good luck..

GE top freezer refrigerator automatic ice cube maker leaks water into the freezer, and eventually on the floor. Water seems to be coming from the area that fill up to make more ice cubes.


If it is leaking water in the freezer it will more than likely freeze amongst the ice cubes causing a block of ice.

It is more than likely leaking at the rear of the unit, near the valve or fill tube for the ice, this will run up the rear wall of the unit.

Kitchenaid Superba 42 Refrigerator Leak under Freezer when Water Used from Door


Either the water filter isn't seated properly or there is a crack in the tubing or the water line isn't seated properly in the coupling behind the grill at the freezer door. Also, inspect for breakage in the line in this area as well (coupling area).
