    Thanks Oxbow for your reply. We have a constant stream of water slowly filling our vegetable drawer also. This is above the freezer and ice compartments.

Hi,

If this is a model with the freezer on top your drain is plugged. Drain from the Fridge section exits the back just below the level of the fridge. At the bottom of the drain line is a loop for an air trap which could be plugged. Clear it and defrost the unit so it can start with a clear drain line. It may solve your problem. Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction.

Hello,

Before jumping to conclusions about why your refrigerator is leaking, do a thorough inspection. Many times, it will be easy to see where the water is coming from and from that point deduce the problem. For instance, water leaking from the back is usually due to an ice maker issue, water from the side of the refrigerator is usually due to a faulty door or gasket, a leaking drain pan,a clogged defrost drain pan.

You need to clean the drain tube and check the ice maker and refrigerator level for water inside the refrigerator.

Take care.

Water leaking from the bottom of frig


Your  deforst drain is clogged.  Every 12 hours or so your fridge does a deforst cycle.  It melts all of the ice built up on the evap coils.  There is a drain at the back of the fridge that goes to a pan by the compressor where the heat from the compressor and the condensor coils evaporates it.  Take the back panel off of the freezer compartment and plunge out that hole.  You will most likely have a build up of ice over the top of the drain.

Water leaking from bottom


Between your freezer section and refrigerator section there is a draintube that allows water to flow from the freezer to the fridge during defrost. You will need to remove the rear wall of the freezer to access the freezer part and the center console of the fridge if one is there. Once you have determined that tube is cleared of ice you will need to continue tracing where the water flows which is usually at the top of the fridge section in the rear center. It goes out the back wall there. Make sure thats all cleared and pour a small cup of water in the freezer part to be sure its clean. Observe the water flow all the way out of the tube to the lower part of your unit into the drain pan which is located at the very bottom or in the rear on top of the compressor.

At least once a day water leaks from underneath my fridge. Can't seem to trace it back. The ice maker line and hook ups are ok. I think it may be coming from inside frige but not sure. any suggestions?


When the automatic defrost cycle runs, the refrigerator has to drain about a quart of water into the catch-pan beneath the fridge, where it evaporates.

Look for the drain tube at the bottom of the freezer and make sure it is not blocked. Remove the lower-front kick panel and, of this model has a drain pan, make sure it's installed and not knocked out of position.

Some units use a little plastic bucket instead of a catch-pan, and sometimes these are sized too small so that they overflow easily.

Some fridges have a 'humid/normal' switch which prevents condensation from forming on door seals.

Hotpoint. Water is leaking from behind light bulb


The drain hose in the back of your freezer is frozen shut. The water you see is coming from the defrost cycle. Turn off the refrigerator. Remove the floor from your freezer and remove/thaw all of the ice. Locate the drain in the back of the freezer. It may be behind the back panel. Thaw the drain until water flows freely through it. Reassemble the freezer, and you are back in business.

Water leak below fridge.


Have you left an air space behind the fridge to allow the natural convection of the heat from the motor to dry the condensate from the tray on top of the motor

By moving it forward and taking off a grill you have improved the airflow ??
