Water comes off somewhere in the bottom of my fridge. what could have caused it?


When your refrig goes into defrost , the water runs down the back of the refrig ( inside ) and out to the drip pan thru a drain hole under the crispers . If water is under the crispers , remove the crispers and you should see a " cap " covering the drain hole . Sometimes crud will cover the slots where the water is supposed to drain , causing water to pool under the crispers . Just remove this cap , clean , and reinstall .

Our Maytag MTB1976HRW leaks water under the crisper drawer. The drain has stopped up before but if this is the problem how do we solve this without having to call a repair person?


Hello,

Open the freezer compartment...
Locate screws on the back wall (from inside freezer compartment)
unscrew and open the back panel.
You will see a hole at the bottom which is the drain hole.
if you feel ice there... then that's the reason... the clog wont let water drain out and it accumulates at the bottom after a few days it leaks out of the fridge.

I used a hair dryer to unclog that hole and within minutes I could see water on the drying pan located below the fridge (which previously was dry)
Hope this helpout......

check and make sure the drain tube is not frozen over and is free and clear to allow the water to drain in the drain pan.

Water is getting into the refrigerator. there is


If the fridge has the freezer on top - the problem is in clogged drain under the evaporator.Whenever the defrost cycle is activated (every 6-12 hours), the water will drain not to the drain pan underneath the fridge, but into the air vents between the sections. Depending on the make/model to get to the drain line you may need either:
  • to remove the back cover in the freezer section;
  • remove the bottom of the freezer section;
  • remove the console with controls on the ceiling of the fresh food section
  • get behind the fridge, find the drain line going to the pan under the fridge remove the drain line and clean.
Good luck.

Water pooling inside of refrigorator


sounds like the drain line for the defrost cycle is plugged. the water is supposedto end up in a pan under the refrig. the drain probably needs to be defrosted and cleaned.located behind the back panel in the freezer compartment

Refrigerator has water under the crisper


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.

Water collecting under crisper drawers.


When the refrigerator goes into defrost mode there is a drain tube that allows water melted off the evaporator coil to go into the drain pan that you found empty. That drain tube is clogged.
