Make sure the fridge is sitting level.

Check the cooling panel/ coils on the inside at the back. There should be a collecting channel at the base with a small hole. This is a drain that leads to a pipe - that ends up in a tray on the compressor.

Very often this gets blocked with grey gunge (pleasant I know)

Mop it up, and use a squirt of cleaner to clear it. (use a baster of water to unblock it if needed.) Try to use as little water as you can. The evaporator tray only holds about a cupful.

How do fix water inside refrigerator under bottom drawers


It may be your drain hole at the back of the fridge has become blocked.

There will be a channel at the back (or side) of the fridge that collects condensation with a drain hole out of the back of the fridge. The drain hole becomes blocked with mould / gunge causing the excess water to overflow and puddle in the bottom of the fridge.
The hole may be gently cleared with a small diameter rod or stick.

There was a puddle of water coming from underneath the refrigerator. what would cause this problem


This is due to condesation water overflowing from the defrost collection tank which is normally located on the bottom of the fridge and above the compressor.
Normally sometimes if the fridge was set to lower temperature the defrosted water will be more than normal. So set the fridge to normal settings and check after draining the tank if the fault recurs.
If so check if the drain pipe from the evaporator collection tray is damaged.

Freezer leaking on Kitchen Floor


the pipe which is located at the back of the fridge/ freezer may be blocked or hanging outside of the designated collection chamber designed for this purpose. Unplug from the mains and pull the appliance away from the wall so you can see and get to the back of it. At the back of it you will see a pipe coming out from the bottom of the cooling fins and will go down and the end of it will be sitting inside a shallow plastic collection unit - not covered but open. Itusually is sitting on top of the condenser unit. (this is a large sealed metal structure whic has pipes coming out of it and is the largest item in that area at the back bottom end of appliance). If there is some liquid in it then either move the pipe end into the dry area or emty it out. Sometimes there isnt a collection chamber but the pipe just drips onto the condenser and evaporates - usually on self defrosting certain brand named products but dont know much about that. Use a pipe cleaner to clear out the pipes from inside the fridge out toward the back using that pipe. the drainage hole is inside the fridge at the back and may have some sort of cover or plug in it. remove that and clean it and use the wire or pipe cleaner to shove doen the hold and clear the entrance and exit. Test pipe functionability by pouring a small ammount of water down the drain hole and see it coming out of the back via pipe. If still leaking make sure the vent areas in the back of fridge and freezr are not covered expecially in the self defrosting models. basically dont overload the fridge or freezer coz this causes blocked vents, difficulty derfosting on self defrosters, water builds up and gets out via the tube as it should, but more water than can be evaporated will cause puddles on the floor

Puddles of water in Fridge


you may want to check your door seal, air leaking thru the door seal causes condesation,also make sure that the drain tube is clear under the defrost element in your freezer.
