Samsung RS253BASB leak at bottom veggie drawer

We have a Samsung RS253BASB- a side by side. A small pool of water builds up on the bottom of the refrigerator side under the vegetable drawer and then leaks on to the floor. Maybe 1-2xs a week. My unit is 2 years old
There is a "vent" in the back of the drawer and the water filter is also on that side of the unit. Maybe the water is coming from either of those places? I have not ever changed the water filter, could this be the cause?

    Mine keeps forming a puddle of water under the vegetable bin. Checked the water lines and replaced water filter. Also the water dispenser works intermittently? Looks like a nice fridge but seems kind of problematic....

The coils are thawing out which allows that ice build up to drain under the veggie drawer. The water dispenser works intermittently because the line freezes and thaws near the coils. What I can't figure out is how to keep those coils from freezing...ice is several inches thick at times. Not much of a solution, but it's all I can contribute.

Why is water pooling in bottom of fridge under veggie drawer.? Also freezing ice cubes in back part of cube drawer


Just above the veg drawers at the back is a channel that collects water when the fridge defrosts. It has a hole to drain the water which is blocked and the water is pooling under the drawers. Clear the hole with a drinking straw.

Water accumulating in bottom of refrig under veggie drawers. Something plugged up? Thank you for any advice. - John.


Hello John,

That water is from the melting frost of the automatic defrost cycle. Their is drain in the freezer behind the back wall under the evaperator coil that is blocked, so instead of defrost water draining it's pooling in the freezer or in some case espically on models with the freezer on the top,the water is leaking from the freezer vents into the fresh food compartment.
The way to clear the drain is remove back plate and remove all ice build up and GENTLY make a small hole in drain through then totally flush w/warm water.
The exact location of drain is under the coil behind back freezer plate in the center

I hope has helped answer your question,
Gene

Water filter on my side by side Samsung refrigerator is leaking. Leaving a small pool of water under the veggie drawer and then onto the floor outside the refrigerator


Well first thing shut the water off,drain water out by removing filter ,check the o-ring on filter and if you recently changed the filter you possibly pinched it when reinstalling and now you need a new. If not it could have a flat spot on it and wore out either way you need a new on.Appliance store (get model # or take with to match up) or even at times a hardware store that sells o-rings.

We have a slow water leak in our fridge. The water pools under the bottom 2 produce drawers.


On most newer fridges, there is a very shallow 'V' shaped collection channel at the back of the fridge just above the bottom drawers, this is for condensate collection. In the middle of this channel there should be a hole, this quite often gets clogged, and over flows, hence the water at the bottom of the produce drawers, clear the hole and it should cure your leak, worth checking every couple of months.

Water is pooling on the bottom shelf and in the


Hi I can help you with this annoying problem.

Self-defrosting refrigerators dispose of the water generated during the defrost cycle, usually via a tube or channel that directs the water to a pan at the bottom of the refrigerator. From the pan, the water normally evaporates.

If the tube or channel is clogged or obstructed, the water backs up and leaks into the inside of the refrigerator compartment. Then the water builds up at the bottom, inside of the refrigerator. When the water has built up for a time it may spill out of the front of the door opening. To fix this problem, clear the drain tube or channel and allow the defrost water to flow down to the drain pan.

Small amt. of water dripping from behind veggie bin


Hi, It sounds like the tank for the fresh water dispenser. Is it coming from the tank on the back wall of the fresh food section?
I can not find the part # but, if this is the source of the leak, I can give other ideas.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

no connection between lower drawer and water dispenser, however there is a water tank behind the crisper's storing water for the dispenser, its possible that there is a hole in the tank or a connection is leaking there and dripping water. remove all 3 crisper's and give a look at it. try getting water from dispenser while your checking (Might only leak when water dispenses
