If it's a top mount, freezer on top, then this means your defrost drain is clogged. A quick fix is to let the fridge dethaw. A more permanent fix is to remove back panel on the inside of the freezer, defrost, hang copper wire from the heater element into the hole. This will prevent a re occurance.

If you have a duel evaporator, evaporator inside the fridge, then drain hole is probably clogged there as well.

The moisture has to be getting inside to pool. Check your door seals or leaving the doors open to long.

Why is water pooling under right crisper?


On defrost refrigerators water is drained down the sides to an outlet on the bottom of the interior of the unit and then to a tray under the unit, close to the floor, where it is heated and evaporates.
If he hole inside is plugged then the water will pool inside.
Take out both crispers and try to find the location where the water will flow out. It may be plugged with gunk The inside bottom of the unit may have indented runs where the water will be directed to the outlet.

Yes it is located in the refrigerator on the bottom in the back. I assume you know how to clear it, Hot water plus towel to soak up excess water should take several tries of very hot water until it clears. Good luck

Water comes off somewhere in the bottom of my fridge. what could have caused it?


When your refrig goes into defrost , the water runs down the back of the refrig ( inside ) and out to the drip pan thru a drain hole under the crispers . If water is under the crispers , remove the crispers and you should see a " cap " covering the drain hole . Sometimes crud will cover the slots where the water is supposed to drain , causing water to pool under the crispers . Just remove this cap , clean , and reinstall .

Clean the drain pan and drain line in the back of the freezer section underneath the evaporator coil. 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! :)

Underneath the crispers is full of water sometimes even freezes Underneath the crispers water collects, but it does not freeze.


Here is a link to help you resolve the problem I also have an even better link but on-line is moving slow at moment. Anyway you will need to take the part out from back and clean the blockage., Let me know if this helps, Sea breeze
