Question about Frigidaire FPHC2399KF (226 cu ft) Side by Side Refrigerator

Open Question

Frigidaire FRS20ZRG Water is leaking from the internal lower vent area every 2-3 days. This in turn collects in the bottom of the freezer below the basket and freezes. Subsequent water than leaks over the ice, under the door & onto the floor. In an effort to correct the situation I turned off the water supply which did not help. I also turned the freezer section off for several hours to hopefully eliminate any ice buildup, but again no success.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Water collecting and freezing in bottom of freezer

Hi, Remove the rear inside panel of the freezer and locate the drain hole under the evaporator coil. Remove the ice and flush the drain hole with hot water to make sure it is free. You can try running a soft wire through the drain also.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

SOURCE: Frigidaire FRS20ZRG Ice is collecting in the

sounds like the drain is blocked,melt out the ice with a hair dryer until you can remove the bottom bin or draw,and remove the second drawer or bin,look at the inside back wall of the freezer and follow it down to the bottom,if you can't see the drain hole you'll have to remove the wall to get at the drain,slime and food gets stuck in the drain and when the machine defrosts the ice that melts off of the evap coil turns to water and it goes down the drain and down into the pan where it evaporates from the heat of the compressor and condenser but when the drain gets blocked the water has nowhere to go but onto the floor of the freezer and eventually onto the kitchen floor,i use a steemer to blow out the drain hose if you don't have one melt out as much ice that you can and pour hot water into the hole,with something like a turkey baster or anything that will push through the drain will work,when you think it's clear pour more hot water into the drain,if it goes down you're done if not keep at it until the water drains through.hope this helps

Frigidaire FFHS2311LWD has water pooling up and freezing bottom drawer and lower vent. Drain tube doesn't seem to be clogged. Water leaks onto floor some days.


the drain tube is most likely clogged. if the lower vent is freezing up there is no way to confirm because it is covered with ice. the reason water leaks onto the floor is, the refrigerator goes into defrost, frost melts and runs down the ice to the door. use a hair dryer to remove all ice, then use hot water to check drain. drain tube may be up to a foot long and may have a trap. you may have to go in through the back to gain access to the drain

Started leaking water accumulated on bottom shelf in lower level. now top freezer takes 2 days to freeze ice, bottom freezer vent clogged.


The drain is clogged. When the drain clogs it can also clogs the airflow vents. Remove the back wall of the freezer to access the drain. Remove all the ice blocking the drain and the vents. Then use a trukey baser to force hot water down the drain until water flows freely. Then mix water with baken soda and pour it down the drain. http://www.appliance-repair-it.com/refrigerator-leaking.html

Your drain plug within the evap area of the freezer is frozen, turn frig off, let sit for day or two with doors open. Once all ice has melted then take rear freezer evap cover off and pour water into try and make sure it drains, if not then unplug drain. This is usually caused by a defrost heater bad or unit not going into defrost when it's supposed to, may be main board.
