Question about Woods Upright Freezer MU07W
Hi Linda. We have the identical model of Woods all-fridge and
experienced this problem several times over the course of several
months. Hopefully this is still timely.
The short answer is that the clear flexible-plastic drain tube that runs
from the inside rear of the fridge down to the catch tray (underneath
the cabinet, next to the floor, behind the kick-plate) is sufficiently
plugged (with some kind of gunk, probably from a spill inside the
fridge) to cause a back-up. I suppose the inner diameter of the tube is
maybe 3/16" so it can easily get clogged. Consequently, the water runs
down the inside back of the fridge & eventually ends up in the
depressions below the crispers. In our case, after those depressions
filled (and I hadn\'t noticed), the water would run out onto the floor.
Initially, I used a fine wire to poke some of the gunk out of the tube
but I didn\'t get it all out. Just enuff to let some of the water get
thru, but the tube would plug up again. After a few repeats of the
problem, separated by a month or 2 each time, I decided a more "drastic"
tube cleaning was required.
I suppose a good strong compressed air blast might clear the tube
completely, but I didn\'t have that available so I had to use a
semi-flexible wire & sorta gunk out the tube. It\'s been about 1.5
yrs. since that more thorough tube cleaning & the problem hasn\'t
come back, so I think the tube got plugged from a spill in the fridge
(which thankfully hasn\'t re-occurred... yet).
BTW, I don\'t have the manual either, but the lower part of the tubing is
accessible from behind the fridge. I didn\'t pull it completely out
(which might have disconnected it from its fitting), I simply reamed it
out while it was in-place.
Hope this has been of some help to you.

Hi, I had the same problem where my woods fridge was leaking water ever 10 days or so. I wasn\'t sure where the drain was, so I looked Up the manual online to find it. I also have a large fish tank, and I already have this wire tool with a brush on one and a stiff wire end that is about 3 feet long and flexible, i used that to push the gunk out of the drain tube. I also used some Javax to disinfect and clean the tube out. The tool from the pet store was $2. And worked awesome! In total it took me about an hour to pull out my fridge, take the drawers out, take the inside cover off, clean out the plug, and totally clean my fridge inside, out and under. And put it all back together. Yes it was gross, but I felt empowered to fix it myself :) p.s. I disinfected my pet store tool to use again on my fish tank.. Hope this helps someone

If your refrigerator leaks water, you have a problem with either a water line or a drain line. If your refrigerator has an automatic icemaker or a water dispenser, the water supply line could be broken. Automatic icemakers have a drain line that runs down to the drain pan beneath the fridge. Mold build-up inside the drain line can lead to a rupture that allows water to escape .A broken drain line can also lead to water leaking from your refrigerator.
