I have a top freezer/bottom refrigerator-6months old-no icemaker hooked up. There is water dripping continuously into the refrigerator compartment-some of it freezes and the rest accumulates in the...


Hello,

That water is from the melting frost of the automatic defrost cycle. Their is drain in the freezer behind the back wall under the evaperator coil that is blocked, so instead of defrost water draining it's pooling in the freezer or in some case espically on models with the freezer on the top,the water is leaking from the freezer vents into the fresh food compartment.
The way to clear the drain is remove back plate and remove all ice build up and GENTLY make a small hole in drain through then totally flush w/warm water.
The exact location of drain is under the coil behind back freezer plate in the center

Good luck

I hope this helps

If this is an older style top mount refrigerator than most likely the drain is clogged causing the water to leak into the fridge during the defrost process. What's the model number?

There is water accumulating on the bottom of the fridge. I replaced the door seal but it still accumulating the water,


check your drain at the back of refrigerator inside behind the controls & light. some time it will get clogged up. Only if this is a top & bottom type. do not try this if you are not good with your hands at fixing thing. and be safe .

There is a leak somewhere in the refrigerator causing water/ice to accumulate in the bottom of the freezer. Husband says it is not the icemaker itself that is causing the problem.


There may be a vent hole at back of fridge, some fridger like mine have a drain hole to vent moisture out through a pipe to drain on top of rear tray for evaporation.

Kenmore refrigerator 106.72206201 - accumulating ice and water


Probably a clogged drain line in the freezer. Unplug it for 2 days and leave it open. Reset controls to 3 and C or factory settings clean the coils on the bottom outside with a vacuum and a brush and restart the fridge.

We were able to fix the freezer water leak. We unscrewed the false freezer floor and the inside back panel. Ice had accumulated on the freezer floor and the defrosting drain was frozen. We removed the ice by using a blow dryer then poured boiling hot water onto the frozen drain hole. The frozen water in the drain pipe hole eventually melted and the water released into the defrosting drip pan at the bottom of the refrigerator. Problem solved. We no longer have water leaking into the refrigerator.
