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 magic chef French door refrigerator. Water under the freezer becomes ice and when this melts water seeps onto the floor. Sometimes enough water to completely soak a couple of towels


Lower the setting to your FREEZER this may be defrosting too often and the drip pan is over filling, or stop leaving the doors open too long .

Why is my Samsung two-door fridge freezer leaking water into the bottom of the freezer compartment. What is the solution. I have defrosted it for 24 hours without success.


Hello there
You said you' ve defrosted it for 24 hours, that is good and it is the first step, Now clean out the drain system on the freezer side. The ice melts and become water it should drain out onto the drain pan underneath . But because the drain is plugged and the water can't running down the drain so it running out the drip pan onto the bottom of your freezer compartment. You may need to take out the back pannel on the freezer side to get to the drip pan below the freezing coil.

Hope this can help you to solve the problem.

JDC2389GES side by side fridge Water is leaking inside the freezer and pooling at the bottom.


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
Actually the leaking water is from the evaporator coil unit....(it is located at the back wall or underneath the freezer compartment). Under normal conditions,Self-defrost refrigerators usually dispose the water generated during the defrost cycle through a tube or channel that directs the water a pan (Known as Drip pan), commonly below the refrigerator unit....
The channel or tube is clogged and the water is leaking to the refrigerator/freezer unit, so you need to clear that blockage/contamination....Once the blockage is removed, the generated water will move through that channel/tube directly to the drip pan and there will no water on the floor in the refrigerator/freezer compartment. This is all you need to do....


Best of Luck,


Your token of appreciation in form of rating would be highly obliged,

Why does my magic chef refrigerator leak water on the floor


Could many problems causing this. From were is the leak, below the doors, that means the door seal is going bad, from under the fridge, it can mean the drip pan is full of dirt and muck. Pull her away from the wall and check the drip pan, some you can get to from the front some from the back. Under here is where all the stuff collects to muck things up. Get a Vac and clean her up, pull out the pan wash it off outside put it all back together, forget it about.

Whirlpool Fridge makes a loud dripping sound all the time G56SHE


Erin,

The water you hear sounds like it's coming from the automatic defroster in the freezer compartment. It runs down a drain tube into the pan you describe under the fridge. The pan is heated and evaporates the water.

Just some possible explanations if you are hearing "lots" of water"

* You may be in a warmer, more humid climate
* The temperature and humidity in your dwelling is elevated
* The door gasket on the freezer may be leaking
* The freezer is too full
* The freezer door is not closing properly
* The freezer door is being left open for extended periods
* There is a problem with the defrost cycle

If you are hearing water running all the time, check the ice maker water line and fill valve (if you have an ice maker) - there could be a leak or other malfunction.

Behind the panel in the freezer there is a drain hole that is underneath the evaporator.  It is frozen over.  Take the back panel off and get all of the ice out and run hot water down the drain until it is clear.  When the unit goes into defrost some of that ice melts and drips down thru the vent into the fridge section.
