The drain is probably clogged. Use a pipe cleaner to clear and then use a turkey baster and force hot water through. Follow with a weak bleach solution. Drain is usually in the middle of the bottom. maybe towards the back. It is supposed to drain into a pan underneath the unit and then evaporate. Another solution could be a leaky door gasket. This overwhelms the defrost system and causes leaks.

Water on floor


Check your drain hose that leads to evaporator pan. The hose should be in the pan. If it is in pan, then check to see if all door gaskets are tight and no leaks or gaps. This likely is the problem assuming you don't have a leak in the water line leading to ice maker. Try these things first and then we wll move to the next possible solutions.

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

Drain plug freezes up and ice builds up in freezer then leaks into frig. How do you keep the drain free from building up?


Use a turkey baster filled with very hot water and flush it several times. That should resolve the problem. Also check the door gasket, if it is leaking, excessive frost would be visible causing more water then the system was designed to handle.
Good Luck,
Gil

Frigidare Model No. FFU1464DW2 is leaking water on ground floor, can you tell me where to find the drain pan and what is causing this? Many thanks.


Most likely it is leaking because the drain in the back of the freezer is clogged. The most likely source of excessive water drainage is a bad door seal which causes frost to build up.

Frezzing up


Be sure you have the defrost timer set for 4 defrost cycles and no less than 30 minutes each time.
Make sure doors close and seal tight.
Verify that the defrost heaters work.
Sit and time a defrost cycle. It could be terminating early, prior to the coil being completely cleared.
If it is frost on the coil, could be an air leak or high humidity.
If it is icing, it is a defrost problem.
Start here and let me know.

Good Luck!

Bosch Frost Free Frdge Freezer Icing Up


Switch off fridge. Put a pedistal fan in front blowing into the cabinet and leave until all ice has defrosted. Locate the drain hole in the back of the freezer compartment, try to defrost ice which blockes up about the first inch or two of this pipe. If water does not run through you need to force it through with a turkey baster. This should sort your problem. ratemeplease

Frosting & water dripping from freezer in Frost free freezer


Hi, You will find that your problem relates to the defrost heater in the freezer. You will need to take the drawers out and remove the back panel to access the evaporator. There is a foil heater that lays underneath the evaporator and it will need to be changed. Along with the klixon that controls it. This will ensure that both parts are good. Your problem will then be fixed no more water!
Good luck................
