Leak From Freezer

Ice building up in bottom on freezer side and then every couple of days it lets loose and covers the floor with water. Had a repair man out a couple of years ago when it was under warranty and it seemed to help but now it's back. We have taking ice out every couple of days but have to leave a towel so as not to ruin our hardwood floor. Anyone have a solution to this?

Water leak on floor


Typically on this model the drain hole Under the evaporator cover gets clogged. Remove the cover off the rear of the refrigerator and pour hot water into the drain until it goes down quickly. To remove the cover u will have to remove all the freezer shelves and the icemaker. Remove the covers screw and u should see that at the bottom u will have a block of ice down below. The refer goes onto defrost every couple days and will leak the melted ice onto the floor

There is layer of ice that has formed at the bottom of the freezer side. Due to this there is a leak of water that appears every two or three days. I cleaned the layer of ice once and after 2 or 3 weeks...


Sounds like the drainage hole is blocked with ice, i normally take the back cover off the freezer and at the bottom you will see a build up of ice at the bottom, turn freezer off and carefully remove as much ice as you can, then pour some boiling water over the excess ice and in the middle you will see a drain hole make sure water then freely flows down drain hole. Other than that you could try switching your freezer off for 24 hours to clear ice.

Ice builds up on floor of freezer apparently some leaking as my lamented floor is showing some damage. i have cut off water supply to icemaker and water tap thinking this was problem.


most likely you have a plugged and frozen defrost drain. check behind the bottom basket of your freezer section to confirm this you will find alot of ice build up. to repair you self:
  • unplug refrig.
  • unload freezer section
  • remove rear access cover (on jenn-air's there are 2 screws about mid way up they are painted white and arent very obvious).
  • clear all ice
  • flush drain hole with warm water. ( i use a turkey baster filled with hot water to get best results)
  • reassemble unit
  • reapply power
this should stop your water leak. thanks Peyton

Ice accumulation on the bottom of the freezer


Your drain line is clogged, that is located behind the white wall inside of the freezer. The water comes from defrost cycle, that happens every 8-12 hours. You need to defrost it and snake it.

Water puddling in bottom of freezer and freezing


the drain in the back of the freezer is probably full of ice. you need to pull out panel and use heat from a blow dryer to unplug the drain. then take a small gauge copper wire long enough to extend into the drain a couple of inches and loop it around the black heating element then when it goes yhrough defrost it should keep this from reaccuring

Freezer leaking water


The drain is plugged just below the coils in the back of the freezer. My fridge had the same problem and I found the hose (which can be accessed from the rear bottom) was plugged with mold. Also, i noticed the hose was connected to the water holding pan and was too close to the bottom and easy to plug. I removed it from the connector and just let it dangle in the holding pan.
