Drain system is clogged.
Clean the drain tray and drain line in the back of the freezer section, located behind the back cover and underneath the evaporator coil. (hint: use turkey baster with hot water) Make sure water drains when you pour it in. If it doesn't - also clean drain tube on the back of the unit behind the cover. When done - make sure to put the tube exactly where it was.

Good luck! :)

Water on floor - french door refrigerator with freezer below


Yes the bottom compartment does have a drain opening but to see it you will need to remove the rear panel covering the evaporator inside the back wall of the freezer compartment. See item location number 11 on page 3 of the parts list. That will need to be removed so you can reach the drain inside the freezer compartment. The fresh food section also has a drain.

Refrigerator model GR-B247WV Bottom of freezer compartment has frozen water recently. Could it be the heating element or the computer chip is faulty? Is there a number I could call for repair? Thank...


Hi,

You may have a blocked drain. Therefore when your fridge goes into a defrost cycle, the melted water usually travels down a drain hole and collects in a container above your compressor, which eventually evaporates.

If the drain gets blocked, the water collects at the bottom of freezer and freezes.

If the defrost mechanism fails you will have ice and frost building up all along the back plate of the freezer, not just the bottom.
You can place calls to expert help on this site.

How to replace seal on the freezer door


Hello,


  • Take food out of freezer
  • Take rack out
  • Take out any ice cube racks
  • Remove ice accumulated in the bottom of the compartment (I used a hammer)
  • Unscrew the back panel inside the freezer compartment
  • You won't be able to remove the panel right away because of the plastic duct is mated to the bottom of the freezer compartment.
  • Lift the panel up to unmate the duct and the bottom, and pull the top end of the panel toward you. Don't pull too hard because there are electrical wires attached to it.
  • Disconnect the wires and remove the panel / duct.
  • I saw an accumulation of ice and a hole.
  • Remove whatever ice you can.
  • Pour boiling water into the hole to remove ice inside the hole.
  • You'll know you've succeeded when water runs easily down the hole.
  • The water should collect underneath the fridge - there is a grille that you can remove (Just pull) and you'll see a pan where the water is collecting.
I just did this so I'm not sure if it will happen again ...

Good luck

there is a chance that the bottle that holds your water in the fridge compartment.could be broken or a line maybe disconnected this would cause water to leak in the fridge compartment.this bottle is designed to hold the water and get it cold before dispensing to your glass

Water collecting in the bottom of freezer.


There's a small drain in the bottom of the freezer compartment. It will clog up from time to time and cause water to pool up, then run wherever it can. So, find that little drain (small hole about the size of a dime or so) and un-clog it. you can do this with hot water and a turkey baster!

Amana bottom freezer: water leaking & ice build-up


There should be some kind of drain at bottom of freezer compartment to collect and run off any condensate that collects during defrost cycle.. Clean out the drain and snake out the line that leads from it. Right now the liquid is collecting where it should not and it will leak out the gasket when you have enough of it.

Water drains from freezer compartment into refridgerator


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
