    Thanks but I can not do.
    I believe you it caused by clogged drain pipe. Yes bottom cover is easy to remove. A rea pannel is glued no screws and no pins. I approached from inside take two scre out 8 side pins but Twin Coolin cover will not be com off.

    I found upper center one small plastic lid. there is a hole and capped by ice. Is it? Is it a drain opening? If so I may find solution otherewise I am stuck. Thanks,

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.

Why is water pooling on bottom of refrigerator under the fresh food drawers


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

Your purchased a high price Samsung refrigerator. About 60% of my service calls were either Samsung or LG models. They look great on the show floor.

Your unit has two cooling evaporator coils. One in the freezer which is common and one in the fresh food section which is not common. All Sansung has done is add another series of high failure components.

You have a frozen drain in your fresh food section. You can either call a service company or shut down your refrigerator for 36-24 hours to defrost the drain. You call a service company, if I were still working for Sears, I would have to charge you about $350.00 to tear out the back wall and replace this usless coil.

Turn off your refrigerator for 24-36 hours. Hopefully it is not a fan or a colling coil failure in your refrigerator.

Freezer /fridge water/ice in fridge and or freezer

Usually due to CONDENSATION due to bad door seals or a plugged evaporator drain line? Can use a soft flexable tubing and very hot water to clean it out. Bad door seals usually need replacement, but u can use a blow dryer and something to pry it closer to the door wall while blowing hot air on to it. To create a seal, to test for bad door seals place a dollar bill in between the door and wall of fridge where it closes. Then slide out the dollar bill with door closed. It should offer some resistance and not be easy to pull out.
Most all fridges have a drain. Look inside your fridge for a "V" shaped channel with a small hole. This hole leads to a tube and a small pan which sits on top of your refrigerator's compressor. The defrost cycle causes water to run into the channel, down the tube, and then it generally evaporates with the heat of the hot condenser/compressor.
However, if that tube is clogged with food crumbs, particles , debris etc, you will have to clear it to get back to a normal mode of operation. A toothpick, pipecleaner, straw or a cotton bud can often do the trick.
Even a frost free freezer will still ice up at times in the areas away from the heated defrost area and the drain line can freeze. This icing causes the pipe work to the compressor to ice over or sweat and cause a puddle. Or if the drainage has frozen over, it will need to be de-iced. ( usually the line is under the freezer bottom plate covering. Towards the back of the unit) And there is another inside the fridge area also.
Give the freezer a good overnight defrost until it's totally clear of ice in addition to making sure the drain is clear to the pan at the back and then restart the freezer.

Water in veg crisper freezing


You have a white cover in the back of your fridge it says twin cool on it. Behind that cover is a drain for your defrost cover that is probably frozen and water is leaking through that cover. Wrap a piece of copper wire around the heater and fish it down the drain and it
will fix the problem

Where is water comming from found in bottom under veggie drawers


often a blocked drain. The drain pipe should empty on to a collection bowl on top of the compressor. If you can blow sharply up this pipe, the blockage should clear.

Water is pooling under drawers in bottom of refridgerator and drips behind fridge from the top of drain plug. I took out plug on back of fridge and clean it out, it appeared to be plugged. I do not know...


The drain pan would located at the bottom of the refrigerator near the compressor. You can often remove the drain pan from the front after removing the grill or from the back after pulling the refrigerator out from the wall and removing the access cover.

Auto defrost works fine except for water accumlating in the bottom of unit under the bottom trays instead of in the water tray by the compressor. graywolf7499@yahoo.com


There is a leak or damage of the pipe leading from the evaporator downwards.The defrosted water is leaking out of the tubing to the bottom,replace this tubing or check the leak on the collecting tray under the evaporator.
