SOURCE: Kenmore / GE side by side defrost drain keeps freezing up

Check under the base, the tube must be clear to the water tray, often there is a rubber flow restrictor, this either perishes or blockes, either way remove it, defrost over night and then turn back on, should then work ok within 24hrs. Regards Adbvisor

SOURCE: locate evaporator condensate drain tube

next remove the evaporator fan cover and under the evaporator will be a silver tray with a hole in it this is the drain for the defrost systems and some times they get frozen the best way to clear them is with a eureka 350 hand held steamer you can get at Lowe's fairly cheap you can also find about 1000 other uses for it a round the house

SOURCE: Water draining under crisper bins & onto shelves. Try again

Your drain tube is stopped up. Take the panel off in the freezer section and chip away the ice in the pan below the coil. When you get to the drain hole pour hot water in it until it free flows. You will need a towel in the freezer to catch the excess water. Run some extra hot water through it to assure that you clean the drain out good.

My GE climate control drawer always has water in the pan . I wipe it out and when I return there is always water on the bottom.


Hi,

Which model do you have? Its easier to tell you when I can get the information of the unit. I can guess, obstructed drain to the evaporator in the fresh food section, or a leaking water tank, but not sure as all units are not built the same. Thanks

I have a top freezer/bottom refrigerator-6months old-no icemaker hooked up. There is water dripping continuously into the refrigerator compartment-some of it freezes and the rest accumulates in the...


Hello,

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

Good luck

I hope this helps

Water at bottome of refrigerator


Under the draws in the back, there should be a drain hole that drains water down to the drain pan under the unit. Check to make sure it's not blocked with food or frozen water.

Leeking water inside fridge from top


Defrost drain is clogged. This accessable thru the back wall of the freezer. Also depending on your model some also have removable Bottom floors of freezer that also get ice accumulation. When the defrost drain gets clogged water from the defrost cycle has no where to go so it stays and accumulates ice till eventually it leaks into the fresh food section. Clear the drain completly and you will have no more problems.

My ge fridge model TBX18k lg has water building up underneath the drawers in the bottom of fridge. Must be coming from freezer section, but my model has no water dispenser or ice maker. Got any ideas?


Remove the food from the freezer and then remove the rear freezer wall . Should be 2-4 screws and maybe a clip on each side on the top vent . Once the panel is removed , useing a hairdryer , defrost the tray below the coils until you can see the drain hole . Defrost the drain hole until water begins to flow into the hole . Use a small hose inserted into the hole and blow out any debris which has accumulated . You can also use hot water to help defrost the drain hole . Once completed , reinstaal the panel and of course , food .

Water in box waqter keeps accumulating on shelves iveg bins andunder bins


When the freezer goes through the defrost cycle, the water collects in the defrost drain pan and drains into a pan underneath the unit where it evaporates over time. If the defrost drain pan is clogged, the water will fill the pan where it will freeze. Once the pan is full of ice, the water from the defrost cycle will run over the pan and down into the fresh food section. This will require that the drain pan be clean of the ice and the drain tube cleared of ice and debris.
Hope this helps.

Dry-spin doesn't work, because after rinsing the clothes are still wet. MOD- VBXR1070WOWW SER-SZ107967H


I'm assuming this is a G.E. brand because of the model number. Take the four screws off the very bottom panel of the front of the washer. Inside you will see a twist off rubber cap. Place a pan under it big enough to hold 2 quarts, and twist the cap open. When the water comes out and it is empty remove any accumulation of lint, loose change, etc. This should be done monthly to help the washer discharge the water on spin cycles.

Also, inside the door is a flat rubber ring. At the bottom pull the flap back. There are small holes there for the water to drain out. Lots of stuff accumulates there too, even as large as a pocket knife or ball point pen. Check that daily when washing.

Fridge ice accumulation inside and water dripping outside


Hi, Are you getting ice build up in the freezer side as well? There is a air shuttle between the fresh food side and the freezer side. thwater might be getting in the freshfood side from there. Look at the bottom rear panel in the freezer for ice build up. Ig=f there is ice, you will need to get to the drain from inside the freezer and check for blockage.
Please let me know if I can help you further.

Samsung Fridge Freezer leaking water


hi August.
Cause: A blocked defrost drain is one of the most common causes of water leakage. This happens when food particles or other debris clogs up the drain hose, which can lead to ice buildup and, eventually, water leaking out of the freezer and refrigerator.
3 common refrigerator problems you can easily fix yourself

The freezer drain hose will drain the defrost water into a drip pan at the bottom of the freezer. When this pan becomes full, it will leak water onto the floor. This is a regular maintenance task whenever the freezer defrosts. Empty the drip pan during the defrost cycle.
How to Fix Water Leaking From the Bottom of Freezer

Why is my fridge leaking water on the floor? If the refrigerator is leaking water it's possible that the refrigerator has a clogged or freezing defrost drain. If the defrost drain freezes the defrost water will overflow the drain and drip down to the bottom of the compartment, If enough water accumulates in the bottom it can run out onto the floor.
