Hi,
Your defrost system is the problem.You just switch of the system for 8 hours are more.So the blocked ice in freezer will melt fully and again this type of problem will not occur.

The freezer back side and the evaporator fan and the drain hole is blocked due to frost in the freezer.Once it is solved this problem will not occur.

post a comment for further assistance.
Thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

Water is appearing under the front left foot (as you look at it). It builds up in to puddle over night. I have checked the instructions which are difficult to follow (not very clear English) but it said...


Freezer drain is plugged.
Two solutions:
1. Call a service repair company.
2. Turn off both controls (turn to lowest setting) and open freezer door for minimum of 24 hours (max 48 hours). That will thaw drain sufficiently.
What has happened: Somehow the freezer drain had ice build-up and eventually froze solid. Every time the unit went into defrost mode, the melted frost (now water) had no place to go. The normal exit is the freezer drain hole which leads to the drip pan underneath. That exit is plugged with ice, so the water went where it could - across the freezer floor and out the bottom of the freezer door. You found it and wondered why.

I have a Jenn-Air refrigerator, Model JCD2389DE, and in the last two weeks we have noticed water puddling on the floor in front of the "freezer side" door. We thought maybe the water dispenser...


Mine did this a few years ago. I had to call service out to replace the system board. I guess it's a common problem. Something on the board fails and the defrost operation does not work properly, resulting in rapid meltdown of ice build-up and puddles on the floor.

MZD2766 GE - A puddle of ice forms at the bottom of the freezer


Sounds like the defrost drain is cloged. There is a hole at the bottom of the freezer behind the back wall. if this is cloged then the water that is suppost to drain there will overflow and freez.

Puddle in front of TFX24CRS


If there is ice on the floor of the freezer, you have a blocked defrost drain. If no ice there, you are getting water from the water / ice dispenser, possibly down the back side of the door panel.
Seal the seams around the water catching recess at your dispenser with a bit of clear silicone. (corners and along the front edge seam with the front door panel.

If you have an ice maker, check for a leak in the water line. If no ice maker, there could be a leak in the pan for the defrost water, or the drain hose is out of position. Also, check to see if the water is actually leaking out from the freezer door. That would indicate a clogged drain. The bottom inside the freezer may have water, or ice on it. If so, suspect the clogged drain.

Freezer icing over at bottom and leaking onto floor


Hi, You will need to remove the rear panel in the freezer and then remove the ice build up in the drain pan. The drain hole will have ice down in it.Make sure all the ice is gone and then flush the drain hole out with hot water (a basting serenge works great)
This should take care of your water problem.
If I can assist you further, please let me know and please rate me response so that other as well as my self will know how I am doing.

Thanks

Water puddling in bottom of freezer which freezes


Tool needed: Screw drive with the insert tips can be used to remove screws use the end of the screw driver with out a philips bit or flat tip inserted. Remove frozen food to camping coolers igloo ice chests or coleman ice chests or a freezer in your home . Remove all racks and baskets to expose movable panels at the inside back of the freezer compartment.
Notice the 1/4" hex nuts remove the screws holding the panels at the back wall. Clear built up ice carefully. You now can take out the panels and expose the fan and cooling cool that creates the cold temperature on the freezer side.

Near the bottom is an aluminum U shaped pan with a shallow funnel indentation at the bottom. Clear ice from the funnel pan and inside bottom carefully. Sharp objects break ice nicely and can pierce the interior surfaces . Look under the cooling coil and at the back wall is a screw holding this soft metal catch pan in place. Remove the screw and carefully tip and slid out the catch pan tray. You now have access to the drain hole that is frozen closed or clogged. Place a large towel in the bottom of the freezer area to catch water. Pour hot tap water a half cup at a time into the drain area. Do not use boiling water the plastic inside a refrigerator or freezer can not tolerate high temperature. I have melted a freezer compartment in a GE with a hair dryer. Remove the water with a clean reag and add more warm or hot water repeat until the drain allows water to flow. stop adding water or the evaporation pan under the refrigerator will over flow.
Check the refrigerator about once a year for the freezeup problem or keep an eye on the bottom of the freezer looking for the build up of water frozen on the inside floor. The other solution get a new refrigerator.

Water puddling in bottom of freezer and freezing


the drain in the back of the freezer is probably full of ice. you need to pull out panel and use heat from a blow dryer to unplug the drain. then take a small gauge copper wire long enough to extend into the drain a couple of inches and loop it around the black heating element then when it goes yhrough defrost it should keep this from reaccuring
