SOURCE: Bottom of freezer has water dripping into it

sounds like you have a clogged defrost drain tube. removing back panel of freezer will give you acess to drain trough, melt away the ice with a hair dryer, youll find a drain hole under there somwhere,pouring boiling water down the drain will clear it pretty quickly( i use a steam machine purchased from the infomercials works awesome, after you clear it and all water drain down tube wrap a piece of solid copper wirearound the heater( black calrod heater right above the drain trough) and stick it in the whole maybe an inch or so. now everythime the heater comes on to defrost it will prevent the hole from freezing over

Three things. First is that your defrost element is faulty, replace. Second, if the defrost element is working there is usually a thin filiament of aluminium which is attached to the element and inserted into the drainpipe, this keeps the drainpipe from freezing up by radiant heat conducted from the element. Thirdly, your main pc board defrost side is faulty and needs replacing.

SOURCE: water drips from door door water access

Hi, it sounds like you have an inlet valve going bad. It is not sealing tight enough to stop the water pressure. Part # WR57X10032and is located below the refrigerator in the back. If you remove the tube that goes to the dispenser, you can probably see the water dripping from the valve.
Please let me know if this helps you. Let me know if I can assist you further.


Thanks
Vic

Your refrigerator has a defrost drain blockage behind the evaporator in your your freezer compartment. Some models like yours have leak in the turns as the water leaves the freezer. I recommend that you unplug and remove the cover to the evaporator and check the defrost condensate tray below the evaporator. A wet vacuum cleaner and poring a solution with clorox in the drain will help you clean locate the leak and where the blockage may be downline.. I do have the manual on yours and can help you solve this. Some times this is a factory defect and I can help you solve the freezing drain problem. Let me know, Sea Breeze

Why is condensation in fridge?


Good afternoon friend, thank you for your post!

I understand that your Frigidaire refrigerator has moisture forming underneath the bottom panel of your freezer and that is causing water to drip onto your shelves. Would you be able to provide me with your model number that way I could research additional information for you please? You can locate your serial tag (which lists your model number) on the inside cabinet of the fresh food compartment normally on the left side of a top mount. On a side by side it can be found on the right hand side. I look forward to your response. -Matt

How to tell the model number


Is it coming out under the vegetable drawer? We just had a problem with water dripping down into the freezer. Check the drain at the lower back left of the refrigerator, above the bottom shelf to see if it is plugged. Water will be pooling there. If it is, use a turkey baster and warm water to flush it out.
I never found the serial number for our unit but used the model number from the manual.

The freezer works well but the fridgedoes not get cold enough


all the fridge does is blow cold air from the freezer down into the fridge section so if the freezer is working then either the evap fan isn't working or the air ducts are frozen up.first thing open the freezer door,you should hear the fan blowing,if not the fan motor could be bad,if it is blowing,touch the back inside wall of the freezer,is there any ice or like snow on it,if so you have a defrost problem,one more thing to check,open the fridge door,look under the bottom draws,is there any water there? or any water dripping into the fridge section from the freezer,if so you have a blocked drain and the air ducts are frozen.let me know what you find,send the model number off of the fridge,open the fridge door and look on the left side up near the ceiling,you should see a tag with the model and serial numbers just send the model

Water dripping from freezer onto top shelf of fridge with ice buildup back of freezer


the defroster isn't close enough to the drain to be effective. remove the back wall of the inside of the freezer, remove the excess ice. clear out the ice from the drain using hot water and a turkey baster. there is a kit from whirlpool that uses a piece of metal and a screw around the defrost rod, but I found out that a piece of 14 gauge solid core wire with the insulation stripped off works great too. stick the stripped wire into the drain, 2 to 3 inches, and wrap the rest around the defrost rod.

It's likely the door was inadvertently left open, and the cold air passages from the freezer have built up enough ice that the cold air from the freezer has no way to enter the refrigerator. Check the cealing of the refrigerator. If you can see or feel ice in the passages between the freezer and fridge, you can probably solve the problem by finding a safe temporary home for your food, and leaving the refrigerator unplugged overnight.

Freezer is dripping water into the fridge


If your refrigerator has a ice maker or not I think the drain is clogged for the defrost water. We may need to unplug and look behind the freeze back wall to see what is happening. If you would please see if you can find the model number so I can help you better, Thanks Sea Breeze

Our Whirlpool top freezer unit is leaking water into the refrigerator. The model number is ET21NKXGW01 and at the top of the inside of the fridge, water is draining out into the fridge. The defrosting...


We were able to fix the freezer water leak. We unscrewed the false freezer floor and the inside back panel. Ice had accumulated on the freezer floor and the defrosting drain was frozen. We removed the ice by using a blow dryer then poured boiling hot water onto the frozen drain hole. The frozen water in the drain pipe hole eventually melted and the water released into the defrosting drip pan at the bottom of the refrigerator. Problem solved. We no longer have water leaking into the refrigerator.

Bottom of freezer has water dripping into it


A bad freezer door seal causes condensation that freezes at the bottom of the unit. I realize you said the drip pan was full of ice, but if the drain is clogged, that will happen. If that unit has the pan at the very bottom, condensation can also contribute to this.
