Question about Bosch KFU 5755 Refrigerator

Open Question

Water leaking on to the floor (usually the front right hand side). I've checked the drip trays that catch the defrost water and they seem ok. I've also cleaned the condenser. The problem only began as the weather warmed up so could it be condensation on the outer case of the fridge because when it was installed with the kitchen, the joiner 'clad' the front and right hand side panels with wood to match the cupboards so any condenstaion would be hidden?

remove freezer back panel and you will see a tray at the bottom with a drain hole in the middle and it is this which is blocked. if blocked with ice, clear with some hot water and make sure drain is free and water flows away

Now I think I have other things wrong with mine,after leakage problem the refrigeration compartment wont cool anymore but the freezer part remains working as usual.Ive nailed this down to one of the following not working... Thermostat / timer / defrost heater.So one or more of these needs replacing.Im just trying to look for a manual which shows the nuts and bolts or the refrigerator (not the "How to use" type manual which I have).

SOURCE: bosch fridge freezer - ice build up and water leak from freezer

Hi,
This is most likely a blocked drain pipe - blocked with ice that is.

Remove all the drawers in the freezer - and stack them up.
With the unit switched off and unplugged, undo the fixings on the rear pannel in the freezer (behind the drawers)
Remove it to see the evaporator coils etc.
At the base there should be a channel - and a hole leading to the drain pipe. This needs unblocking wih a thin flexible cable. -net curtain support wire is ideal, and cheap. or use a short length of insulated cable.
Check it comes out at the rear of the unit onto the evaporator container - situated on top ofthe compressor.
Replace everything and switch on.

Water is leaking on the freezer side and we must put a towel in the bottom and change it twice a week.


Hopefully you won't. I am not a "Repairman" so I'm just going off of what I've seen in my experience for refrigerators that put a puddle on the floor.

Usually a puddle is created when the refrigerator defrosts. All that ice in the freezer has to go somewhere when it defrosts, so some models (Not sure if they all still do this?) have a tray that you place in the bottom of the freezer that is there to catch this defrost water.

These trays can get dislodged from the drain that they are supposed to be sitting under to catch the water, or they fill up with water and over flow....then you see water on the floor.

So find out if your model has a tray to catch the water. At the bottom of the refrigerator see if you can remove the little grill (if your refrigerator as one of these?). If it does, you can look under the refrigerator and hopefully you'll see a usually white tray in there that as I mentioned is either displaced and not catching the water, or is full. Move it back to where it should be (there is usually a slot for the tray to slide into.) or empty/clean it out and put it back.

On a new model they may not have a tray like this, but if you think about it...where else is water going to come from out of a refrigerator. Having said that....you just reminded me...do you have a cold water connection to your refrigerator for cold water or ice making? Maybe that's loose or there is some other leak in that water/ice system?

But as I was going to say...refrigerators don't run on water so it's coming from one of those sources..an overfilled defrost tray, or a leak in your water/ice system...if you have one of those?

Water appears on the floor outside the fridge. I have a side by side fridge freezer, Magic Chef


There's a tray under the refrigerator that catches the water dripping down when your auto-defrost cycle runs. Usually this water evaporates before the tray overfills. Either you don't have enough air flow around the refrigerator for the water to evaporate, or the tray may have developed a leak.

I have a Kenmore Eliten refrig side by side that is leaking water from the bottom left front and side. I emptied the exterior water tray near the ice machine thinking that was the problem. It is still...


Greetings,

Please look at the freezer floor under the basket"if you have one" the drain usually gets clogged and this causes the water from defrosting to overflow and run over the ice out to the floor. if you look close and this is the problem..there will be tell-tale sign's......to repair this, you will need to defrost the drain...if this is not it,or you need help to figure out about defrosting...let me know....please leave a testimonial if this solves your problem ....Bruce Denton

Water is leaking from the bottom of the fridge. Why? It is destroying the wooden floor. Refrigerator is Whirlpool Model # ED25UEXHW01


Some water dripping under the refrigerator is normal. There is supposed to be a drip tray to collect it, and there is not so much that it can't evaporate. Check to see that the tray is still there, in the right place, and not cracked. If the drip tray is full of water, then you have another problem. If your air is humid, you would get more water during the defrost cycle and the water in the drip tray wouldn't evaporate very fast. If your freezer door seal is not air tight, you would get more water to defrost. My guess is, the drip tray is out of place or cracked.

Fridge Leaking water from front right hand corner


Most likely you're correct, the defrost cycle produces water that is supposed to be captured in a holding tray, pan, etc. If the pan is cracked it would leak out or if the drip tube (pipe) is not in place it would miss the pan. It may be easier to remove the contents of the small frige and tip it over some to see what you can down there. I assume this small unit doesn't have any water souce to it (no ice maker or water). Check the tubing for damage and see if you can find the holding pan to inspect for crackes, etc.

Fridge Leaking water from front right hand corner


yes, get a pipe cleaner and put in to the hole to try and clear if not from the back you will find the pipe which will be clipped to a plastic tray on the compressor. unclip and blow up the pipe this will always clear the blockage.
