What can cause water in my fridge


dont know what kind of refrigerator you have but this might help:


http://ask.metafilter.com/68706/Why-does-my-fridge-create-a-pond-inside

Frost free fridges in correct working order do not need to be defrosted, not even once a year. This problem is also completely fixable with at most a couple hours labour.

Water in the bottom of the fridge is caused by three things:
  1. plugged drain tube.
  2. plugged or frozen defrost pan.
  3. some other defect in the drain system.
Your drain pan is located in your freezing compartment of your fridge. It collects the condensate that is melted off the refrigeration coil by the defrost heaters. It directs the water to the drain tube system which takes it to the outside of the fridge where it is evaporated, often with an assist from the waste heat from the condenser.

If your fridge is equipped with a pan heating element and the element fails ice will form on the pan and eventually block the drain. This would account for the cyclic problem cured with a manual defrost that kat and nimsey lou report. The same symptoms can present themselves with a partially blocked drain (corn kernels are a common drain blocker). A secondary symptom of this condition is clear solid ice in the bottom of the freezer compartment. If a manual defrost doesn't clear a blocked pan the blockage is full and not ice and disassembly will be required to clear the blockage.

At the top centre back of your fresh compartment you'll usually have a small cup of rubber or plastic. If that cup has water or ice in it the problem is actually a blockage of your drain tube. Because it is a narrow spot the blockage is often at the exit of the cup or on the outside of your fridge where the tube takes a 90 degree bend down to the evaporator pan. If you can remove the cup do so and clean it out otherwise you might need to remove the tube/90 from the back; it's about 75/25. Sometimes a flexible piece of plastic, like a zip-tie, can be used like an drain auger to clear the blockage. Why does my fridge create pond inside

Leaking under neath front of refrigerator


Usually any defrost water sits in a plastic pan and evaporates away in normal operation. If the pan becomes brittle it cracks and leaks water. Pull the fridge out and look on top of the black pot (compressor) Is there a plastic drain pan sat on top of it?
Sometimes if the fridge is working hard a lump of ice can form on the pipework going back to the compressor which melts causing some water at the front of the fridge.
Lastly, the insulation under the fridge may have broken down, allowing condensation to form and drip. If the drain was blocked, the water would be inside the fridge, not underneath.

My bottom freezing compartment some how gets water in it and then it freezes what could be the problem?


Hello
The water comes from the self defrost cycle.It is supposed to drain out to a collector under fridge.
Sounds like your drain got clogged causing ice block to form.
Turn off fridge and use hairdryer to melt ice block. You should be able to see a drain hole.Continue to melt using Hair dryer and hot water.Once ice is out of drain tube use some flexitube to gently push out any obstruction(usuually a pea or lima bean!)

Good as new.

Any feedback much appreciated

LEAKING INSIDE DOWN THE BACK AND UNDER CRISPERS, AND ICE FORMING INSIDE


The drain hole / drain tube in your freezer are probably blocked or even frozen shut so that the defrost water is leaking into fridge. See my answer here:

the smell you get is bacteria from the condensate(it is similar to the legionaire bug)cover all electrics and spray with a strong clorine bleach solution.and because it gets a little greasy(check your windows)all the dust and s..t sticks to it....the clorine will clean it off.also when degreased use a vacuum cleaner to remove all dust.
some people only clean behind there fridges once every ----- years.
treat the back of a fridge the same as your bathroom for cleanliness.

Stopped cooling in bottom but freezer still works


make sure there isn't something blocking the air flow from freezer into refrigerator. If possible, unplug for a little while and see if water leaks out from back wall where evaporator is. It may be frozen up, blocking the fan from pushing air through. Listen closly to back wall to hear if fan is operating, it might be hitting ice build up. If fan is not running at all, that;s your problem.

Some insect would have gone into the drain pipe and blocked the outlet for the water to flow and it gets collected inside.

First please clean the drain pipe and remove any block.

Defrost your refrigerator at least once in three days.

Excess ice formed in the freezer chamber will result in less cooling and melting of ice and make it run down.

The above remedies should solve your problem
