If you want to attempt fixing, remove back freezer panel, use hair dryer to melt ice in drain pan under coils, pour hot water in pan till drain clears.

Mw Daewoo fridge freezer FRS-20321BE is leaking water copiously from the refrigerator I cannot see any source for this but puddles form and flow internally under the veg box. Help!


All depends on how much water is collecting. A lot of water indicated a leak from the ice maker. A small amount and it's probably a clogged condensate drain. Here's a YouTube video on a different brand showing a clogged drain, your may be similar (or not), but it might give you an idea as to where to look. Refrigerator dripping water inside FIX

Hi, I have a refurbished RFG297AARS from Samsung that we purcased as a refurb about 7 days ago. On day 1-3, a puddle of water formed under the back right underside of the fridge, without the water line...


Chances are its either the drip line or drip tray.. there is a drain to route the condensation pulled out of the fridge and freezer that leads to a drip pan underneat the unit.

Either the drip tray was not installed.. reinstalled incorrectly or the drain tube is leaking or no longer directed to it, or it's overflowing due to excess condensate.

Best of luck!

Hi, I have a 20.9 cf (#ET1CHK/ET1CHM). Water


I HAD THE SAME ISSUE EVERY FEW MONTHS. REMOVE THE BACK COVER IN THE FREEZER, YOU WILL SEE A SILVER TRY WITH MOST LIKELY ICE IN IT. THAW THAT ICE AND THERE IS A DRAIN HOLE IN IT. USING A HAIR DRIER GET THE TUBE TO THAW ALSO. ONCE WATER IS FLOWING TAKE A PIECE OF 12 GAUGE BARE COPPER WIRE AND SLIP IT ABOUT 18" INTO THE HOLE. WRAP THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WIRE AROUND THE WIRE COIL YOU SEE WHICH IS THE DEFROSTER. WHEN IT WARMS IT WILL HEAT THE WIRE ALSO AND KEEP THE DRAIN CLEAR

Water is pooling under the veggie bins- watere even came down via freezer door gasket to the floor. I have been noticing water in the right meat bin and in veggie bin, and under them for 2 weeks. most of...


Hello, this sounds like you have a blockage in the drain tube, remove panel back/bottom of freezer..you may see ice build up...melt ice with hair dryer/heat gun...you will see a pan below evaporator...melt ice in pan...dry water up in pan with paper towel...now you should see a hole in pan that leads to drain tube...pour some hot water in pan..wait a couple minutes..mop up water and repeat this step 2-3 times....once you have done this find some flexible curatain wire or electrical wire..poke down the hole until you see the water drain..now it is clear..put back panel back and you are good to go. The reason you see water in the fridge is because the water has been leaking into the freezer and down the vent into the fridge instead of running into the drain hole...Please feel free to comment again if you need any further assistance.

Water leaking along back interior to bottom under & over veggie bins


Sounds like the drain to the drip pan is clogged -- maybe with ice.

Defrost water runs down to a drain in the bottom of the fridge and into a pan underneath where it evaporates.

Sounds like the defrost water is not reaching its final destination.

Here's the way the same problem was solved earlier today:

For those who have this problem with this model: The drip pan is in an open space on the back side of the refrigerator. There is a rubber spout that empties into it. But to clear clogs...you must take out the shelves from the freezer, unscrew and remove the back panel on the inside of the freezer. There you will see the water exit. Boiling water cleared it out.

Small amt. of water dripping from behind veggie bin


Hi, It sounds like the tank for the fresh water dispenser. Is it coming from the tank on the back wall of the fresh food section?
I can not find the part # but, if this is the source of the leak, I can give other ideas.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Accumulation of water in bottom of fridge


You probably need a new door deal for the freezer. When you cet too much condensation in the freezer, it drains down the back of the refrigerator section during the defrost cycle. Check under the produce bins for a drain. If you don't have one, you're not alone. I used to have have to wipe mine out every other day until I finally replaced the seal.
