It is defrosting and you have a crack in the drain pan under the bottom, use duck tape to fix. or purchase a 150.00 drip pan.

There is normally a drain pan under the refrigerator. The defrost water is supposed drain into the pan and be evaporated by air circulation over it. Check and make sure the hose is directed into the pan. You can access the drain hose from the back by removing the lower panel. Don't forget to replace the panel after you finish.

We have a leak and find a puddle under the fridge. The input water lines at the back of the fridge don't appear to be leaking.


there is usually a pan under there to collect water when it defrosts and lets water evaporate perhaps your pan got thrown away .

Hotpoint ctx18ea fridge not cooling


Kimberley, try this:

First see any sign of ice build up in the freezer.

1. Switch off power from wall outlet.
2. Open the fridge door and freezer door and keep them open for atleast 5-6 hours. Salvage whatever food you can.
3. You may now see a puddle of water under the fridge. Clean the floor and inside of the fridge if water and other fluids visible .
4. Now re-connect power and set the recommended settings- usually at 4. Close doors.
5. Your fridge will be making a humming sound. Let it begin to cool.
Good luck

Doewoo no frost fridge freezer is working fine except that we keep getting puddles of water under the freezer door. any ideas. had about 4 years now


probably a blocked drain outlet or pipe. At the bottom rear of the unit, mine had a drain pipe blocked with a plug of mould (5/6 years old machine), apparently quite common. I detached the pipe and cleaned it out and replaced it.
From inside the freezer, I removed the lower back panel and thawed the ice build up on the drainage tray below the defrost heating element, leading to the pipe outside. The puddles of water that was appearing every defrost cycle have now stopped - permanently I hope. Hope this helps you

Diverter valve on Hotpoint FFA70 recieves no power, Fridge ok


Bonjour..Your system check (hot cold) is correct. Generally all new refrig/freezers cool only the freezer & bleed cold air off to cool the refrigerator. Most diverter/airflow dampers I have seen are mechanically operated for simplicity & to keep costs down. I would unload freezer and pull the panel off where you see the fan mounted. Go slow, don't drop any screws.You may not get them back. Look at the drain pan under the evap. coil. If it has ice that is built up in layers. Suspect the defrost termination thermostat. If the evap coil is clogged with heavy frost, suspect 1 the defrost timer and 2 the defrost heaters mounted on the evap. coil. Let me know how you make out.

Maytag mbf2258xeq leaks but it's not connected to a water line. Where's the water coming from?


water is coming from condensation from the compressor coil. usually this will evaporate fast enough to not puddle on the floor. check the plastic line running down the back of the fridge to see that it's not broken or pulled out. while you have the fridge out, clean the coil by blowing it out with compressed air and clean the pan under the compressor as best you can. Hope this helps

My refridgerator leaks water every two weeks


check to make sure the drain pan is in the right place. If it puddles up inside the bottom of the fridge first, your drain hole is plugged up. for this, you wil have to remove the access panel in the back of the freezer side to get to the drain hole. you may also have a crack in your drain pan.

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.

Water in fridge


does this fridge have a gulley at the back with a drain hole in the middle? if so, the drain is blocked, push something flexible down the drain till water flows away freely
