Why is water coming out of refrigerator evaporator


During the cooling cycle, moisture in the compartment air freezes on the evap coils. During the defrost cycle, the ice melts and drips down. This is totally normal. There should however, be a drip pan and drain to control where the water goes.

Tip

Refrigerator not cooling-freezer section icing up


Refrigerator not cooling, ice forming on back of side-by-side freezer:
Turn off unit. Empty freezer section. Remove freezer back panel (4 screws) to expose iced-over coils. Use a fan to speed up defrosting. Put a towel or a plastic drip pan in the bottom of the freezer to collect melting water (rather than letting the water collect and maybe overflowing in the drip pan underneath the refrigerator).
After defrosting, by temporarily replacing the freezer back panel and turning on the unit, the refrigerator may operate OK for about 3 weeks before the next excessive ice build up.
Possible problem- a burned out Defrost Heater.
To check: After defrosting, turn off power to or unplug the refrigerator.
Unscrew the Defrost Heater bracket (2 screws). When loose, unplug the two wires connected to the unit. Have the unit checked, or use an ohm-meter to check continuity. If unit measures "open", high resistance, replace the Defrost Heater and bracket. If the heating element shows continuity (or low resistance) the heater is probably OK and you have another problem. Now you may need to contact a repair man.

My whirlpool refrigerator is 4 year old. the ice maker is not installed I am getting water in my refrigerator now for over 5 months. There is no sign of water dripping down from the freezer or the back...


The 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 inside of the freezer at the bottom of the rear cover.

FRIGIDAIRE frost free refrigerator seems to be leaking. Items in freezer are frozen...items in refrigerator are cold...any ideas? It has an ice maker which is working. Approx. 13 years old.

Water leaking into refrigerator


There are 2 types - the older types where you have a drip cup in your refrigerator extending to the back of your fridge into the wall and down the hose - OR the newer ones where the drain is in the freezer and goes straight down the drip pan. Look at the back of your refrigerator, if you see a tube extending down into a drip pan (on the compressor or next to it) that is your drain tube, if you can locate a drain cup in your refrigerator you can remove it and dislodge anything plugging your drain tube.

For newer or models without a drain cup, you'll have to remove the freezer panel and look at the bottom you should notice a hole, this is where the melted ice from defrost drips into through the tube and onto the drip pan below. Maybe there is excess freezeup ordebris or something blocking out the drain, so the water will spill over to the other opening where cool air passes onto your refrigerator - usually the culprit is excess ice buildup - if it is the case you can manually blow dry that section, clearing up the hole. once done you might also want to insert a piece of wire or long flexible cable to unplug the drain line.

Good luck.
