The freezer itself does not create water. So the water MUST be coming from somewhere.
First the tests: Turn the water off at the wall, clean all the water from the fridge trays and freezer. Wait 24 hours to see if there is any accumulation.
If not, then you have a leak in your water delivery system to your ICE maker.

consult the manual for troubleshooting. Or return here for further directions.

good luck and don't forget to vote!!!

Refrigerator has water on floor daily


Does it have an ice maker?,if it does then check the tray under dispenser ,if it doesn't have a drain, then it fills up with water and every time you open the door it sloshes out.
dry out the tray see if that doesn't help.
You might also check and see if ice gets stuck in dispenser,when it melts it over flows on the floor.

Water under fridge sometimes


You may want to remove all the food, unplug your fridge, and the out the whole thing...melting the ice and cleaning out all the unwanted water. The drawer will be removable, and you can dry under it. Also check the overflow tray under the fridge, if there is one...it'll be full from all the melting.

I have a kenmore model 106 79207990 Water and Ice developed behind the frezzer tray I took the tray out and it appears that the drain was filled with ice. What seems to be the problem with the drain....


Hi,

The drain can get a build up in it over time or a foreign object can get in there and block the water flow.

To clear the drain:

- Turn off the refrigerator and unplug

- Locate the drain (it may be under all the ice) it is just below the cooling coils close the slots in the back panel. The drain hole is about the size of a dime.

- Use hot water and bath towels to unthaw the ice, DO NOT use a chisel and hammer as you can cause damage. A hair dryer may work too but be careful not to melt any of the plastic walls.

- Once the top ice is gone, use a turkey baster to flush down the drain hole until the water flows free.

- A small amount of spilled water on the floor is normal while doing this so have towels ready.

I have water puddling up under my Vegetable bins


Our fridge had the same problem with water under the crispers. My husband removed the slide out bottom out of the freezer section and exposed the galvanized trough that drains the defrost water into the drainage tube that goes to the tray under the refrigerator. Hallelujah! the galvanized trough was rusted through and allowing water to drip into the refrigerator instead of the drain hose. I have not found the trough on any parts lists so he is patching it with putty.

Freezer cooling. Refrigerator colloing on 10 setting only


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.

Kenmore bottom freezer refrigerate leaks


Hello, this sounds like you have a blockage in the drain tube, remove panel back of freezer..you may see ice build up...melt ice with hair dryer/heat gun...you will see a pan below evaporator...melt ice in pan...dry water up in pan with paper towel...now you should see a hole in pan that leads to drain tube...pour some hot water in pan..wait a couple minutes..mop up water and repeat this step 2-3 times....once you have done this find some flexible curatain wire or electrical wire..poke down the hole until you see the water drain..now it is clear..put back panel back and you are good to go. The reason you see water in the Freezer is because the water has been leaking into the freezer instead of running into the drain hole...If you need any further assistance please feel free to comment again. good luck! P.s Please don't forget to rate my solution thanks! Mike.

JCD2389DES Water Leak Problem


We also had this problem with a Jenn Air side by side. I cleaned out the drain tube and melted the ice in the collector tray but we still had water coming out of the freezer door later on. My wife started looking for a new fridge because she was tired of cleaning up the pudles daily. I went online to another site and found this to be a common problem. It seems the defrost cycle is not long enough to let all the water drain out of the collector tray and it ends up frozen in place and the the tube gets blocked and the the water runs down the inside back of the freezer untill it fills the the bottom of the freezer. Then it freezes and the the next time the water flows out the front of the door on to the floor. There are kits available to solve this problem and they cost about $20. I looked at what was in the kit and made my own part. It is a 9 or 10" long piece of # 12 or #14 copper wire (house wiring ground wire).
Turn off fridge and take the shelves out of freezer and then take off the large grill on the back wall and melt the ice in the bottom area where the metal water collector tray is. Look under the fidge where the evaporator tray is and make sure water is in fact running down the tube. To make sure it is, empty out the evap tray and put it back in and pour water into the defrost collector tray to see if the water flows down to the evap tray. If it doesn't then blow it out. If it does then take the copper wire and shove all but 2" of it down the tube that drains the collector tray. The last 2" or 3" of wire needs to be bent 90 degrees so that it lays flat in the tray. It seems the cooper wire that is down inside the tube conducts enough warmth from outside the freezer to keep the tray from freezing up to soon after the defrost cycle and lets all the water drain out down to the evaporating tray which is under the fridge. We never had water in the evaporating tray before because it was never making it down the tube. It has been many months now since my fix with no water on the floor.

you are probably getting an ice build up on the evaporator and the drain also blocked with ice. take back cover off freezer and melt any ice off with careful use of a hairdryer. make sure the drain at the bottom of evaporator if free by pouring a little water down it. if blocked with ice, free with hot water and parience. if fault reoccurs, you have a fault on defrost system
