Here's what usually causes this kind of water buildup:
Self-defrosting refrigerators dispose of the water generated during the defrost cycle, usually via a tube or channel that directs the water to a pan at the bottom of the refrigerator. From the pan, the water normally evaporates. (See a more detailed explanation of this in the How Things Work section of our website).
If the tube or channel is clogged or obstructed, the water backs up and leaks into the inside of the refrigerator compartment. Then the water builds up at the bottom, inside of the refrigerator. When the water has built up for a time it may spill out of the front of the door opening. To fix this problem, clear the drain tube or channel and allow the defrost water to flow down to the drain pan. I tried to bring up diagrams of your unit, but to no avail. I would contact Fisher & Paykel to see what they say, and if they can help you. Herfe's their site: http://www.fisherpaykel.com/ Good luck, and hope this helps.

FRIDGE IS LEAKING LOTS OF WATER UNDER THE CRISPERS


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# GLHT184TJ, is leaking water underneath the crispers. First, make sure the door is closed as well as you are not opening it frequently or for long periods of time. Secondly, make sure all foods and containers are covered. Lastly, make sure that all vegetables have been dried, if you have washed them, before storing them in the crisper drawers. All of the above can cause moisture inside your refrigerator, which can accumulate at the bottom of your refrigerator. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Crisper drawers are feezing vegetables.


look down at the bottom crisper and there should be an air control that lets more or less air in from the freezer section. close this control down so that most of the air stays in the freezer. some models may say meats(colder) and vegetables(warmer).

some models the control in the down position opens up the vent more allowing it to get colder and in the up position closes the vent down more allowing less cold air into the refrigerator. you can remove the crisper and experiment with the control.

Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

what might be happening is that the drain hole for condensate is blocked causing water to gather beneath the crisper. look for a channel under the evaporator (the icy cold part) and there should be a drain hole some where near check this is not blocked.
