SOURCE: water under crispers in my fridge

If the freezer is on top then empty out the freezer and remove the bottom and back liner of the freezer compartment usually phillips screws. In the back you will see the freezer coils along with a defrost element. Below these two items u will see a drip tray that collects water from the coils on defrost cycle, in the center of the pan will be a drain hole that connects to a hose that leads to a pan under the refrigerator.Normally the water is collected there and evaporated. The hole in the tray in the freezer is clogged. Thaw it and clean it until you can pour water in it and it goes to the pan down below. please rate me

Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.

SOURCE: FRT 18 DR HWO the compressor will not work. Fan

This could be for a couple of reasons. The compressor itself could be bad. The relay and/or overload could have burned out. I have seen just simply a wire has come unplugged. You will need to *UNPLUG* the refrigerator from the wall, remove the cover on the bottom rear. Feel the compressor to see if it is warm. If it is, it has been trying to start and could be just the starting relay. If not, the overload could be burned out. BUT with either symptom, the compressor could still be bad. You will need a multimeter to check it for shorted, or open windings. If you are not familiar with these things, please get someone with the expertise to diagnose it.

Viking fridge Model DDRB364RSS dripping water unto bottom cooler drawer and later under fridge - once a day or so. Door Gasket is a bit torn.


problem water in a fridge is moisture from the atmosphere--normally from opening the door but in your case from the damaged door seal
any tear regardless, compromises the compartment so have the seal replaced then see if you have a problem

I have a ffa90 futre fridge & bottom frezzer. the fridge is frezzing the food in the door & in the fridge. have tryed water in botles & they get ice on it .in the door the food frezzers so


Find where the supply air is coming into the fridge part. It comes from the freezer and could easily be supplying -18 air direct to the door. This would give you a 2 in the fridge but anything in the direct air path could freeze.

Refrigerator does not produce ice or water. Kenmore Elite Refrigerator Model Number: 795-775-69600


If you have both ice and water stopping you have a water supply issue.

Water enters under city pressure through an eighth inch supply line.

Start simple and work from there.

If the fridge was moved the line can get kinked. Slide the fridge out and check you have water to it. You can loosen the supply line connection just a little and you should see water leaking. If not it is a plumbing issue in the house. Most likely a the supply line is kinked or possibly someone closed the shutoff valve to the fridge.

OK so we have water to the fridge.

Water comes in and connects to a water filter and then to the door.

If the filter is badly clogged it can cause low pressure to the door and that would cause the problem. Check the filter.

If no go still then check where the water is stopping.

Remove the from cover from under the unit. That is the plastic grate at the bottom of the fridge. It will just pull off but be gentle and take your time so as not to break anything.

Water supply will run through a clear plastic hose. It runs to the filter then to the bottom of the freezer door and up through the door.

You can sometimes see where the water has stopped and clear or replace parts as needed.

There is a connection just before entering the door from the filter. You can loosen that to see if you have water to that point.

If you have water past the filter the problem is in the ice maker and water supply inside the freezer door. Water can leak here, expand, and crack plastic parts easily.

If there is water to the door then you need to dig into that. This gets a little more complex to describe but in short take the ice maker out and check for water supply or broken parts. The problem is probably before the ice maker as your water in the door is not working. This indicates it is not just the ice maker.

Hope this helps.

Water coming out the door while it's running.


could be a few differnt problems. first open door and check bottom of dish if it has a gasket down their or around door inspect it. door seals and on some models btm seals are common to go bad. also make sure a long pan is up on the front to close to door causing water to be splashed . should place al pans and plates frt to back not side to side, also lookat btm wash arm, if holes are plugged with food or the wash arm is broken or melted the water will hit the frt of the door too hard and cause it too leak. worse case scenario the door inner may need to be replaced.

I have a model FRT 18B5JB1..the area under my crisper continues to fill with water and overflow on my kitchen floor..HELP!!


That is from your defrost drain either being clogged with food, or covered with ice. Behind the back wall in the freezer is a drain that empties underneath the fridge. If that drain gets blocked or froze over then the water will dump into the floor of the freezer and out the door gasket.
