Water gathering in the crisper drawers is dropping off of the panel that covers the cooling coils serving the refrigerator (top) compartment and indicates that the drain behind the panel is clogged with ice.

Unplug the unit and empty the top compartment, including the shelves and accessories (you do not have to empty the freezer if you perform this repair in an hour or two).

Part 10 (see diagram) is an assembled panel covering the back wall inside the refrigerator compartment where there are two bottom screws and one central screw (located under a cover tab). The panel (part 10) on model RF217ACPN we bought from Best Buy (2010) is mostly held in by side clips that capture the panel in the opening. Removal of the panel allows access to the coils.

__Once the screws are out, the panel can be removed by pushing in on the sides with your hands (start at the bottom, one side at a time) to unclip the panel from the opening. There is a Styrofoam layer attached to the back of the panel, and ice build-up can make the Styrofoam adhere to the coils behind. Use a hair dryer to warm up the area for several minutes, gently trying to free the panel and deliver warm air behind the panel as it comes free.

__It is important to watch the heat from the hair dryer does not deform any of the plastic parts. _ _

Once free, the panel has two electrical connections at the upper left corner that should be disconnected. Set the panel aside and proceed to warm up the refrigerator with a hair dryer or other blowing air heater.__

You will see the cooling coils in the enclosure and below you will see a "V" shaped collector for the water. This will be filled with ice. Use hot water or air to melt the ice in the collector as well as in the drain line that is at the center, again being careful not to deform plastic parts. This will take 30-60 min depending on the amount of ice.

You know you are finished when water you pour into the pan drains rapidly out of the collector.

I fixed this issue!!!

Water was leaking from inside my fridge. This was happening because the condensation drain was iced over. Where is this drain? To get to it, first remove the crisper bins from inside your fridge. Then remove the back panel by removing 6 screws: 2 at the bottom corners, two on the sides, and two behind each light bulb. The panel might require a little effort to unstick from the back of fridge. After removing the panel, you will see the condensation coils (they're cold). You will also find some ice and water in a collection area below the coils. Normally, water falling from the coils will land in the collection area and pass through the slits at the bottom to a pan below your fridge where it can evaporate. In my case, ice was blocking the way causing the water to backup. To fix it, I removed the water with a rag, then used a hair blow drier to heat the collection area and melt the the ice (including the ice out of site in the drain). After a few minutes, I was able to pour water into the collection area and it passed through!

This is a pretty easy fix. All you need is a screw driver, a hair blow drier, and about 30 minutes.

Same water leak. Just ordered valve water assembly. I observed it for three days water dripping from the valve water assembly. I hope to install it today and observe again. I will also try to clear up any ice on the drain pipe to the drain pan at the bottom underneath the fridge.

Have you checked to see if your condensation tray is too full? The tray will be located at the bottom of the fridge and should slide out easily.

Water leaking from inside the freezer


if the bottome of the freezer floor is frozen then the most common cause is that the defrost drain is cloged, the back wall will mostlikley need to be removed and defrosted, then i use hot water & a long zip tie to make sure the drain is clear, don't use anything too hard as to punch a hole in a drain hose.

On humid days water puddles in the bottom of the frig.


Sounds like the door is not closing properly so humid air is coming into the fridge OR door not closing properly and the humid air is condensing around the door so it is leaking the condensation OR

The water from the defrost cycle is not evaporating so it overflows from the evaporator pan above the compressor. You better call a service technician before getting some floor damage (Do not call A&E)

Why is my whirl pool frig leaking onto the floor and how can i fix it


Frost buildup inside the **** tube that leads from the evaporator coil to the bottom for defrost condensate tray is plugged. Try giving the unit a manual defrost by unplugging and leaving the doors open all night 12 hours. If the problem comes back you may have to take the cover off the evaporator coil and use a turkey baster to force warm water to flush out the tube.

Frig Freezing EVERYTHING!


Your refrigerator has electronic dampers that may be only stuck. I think it would not hurt to defrost the refrigerator and lets have a look at those damper motors and see if they are responding to your control settings. Let me know, Sea Breeze

Ice maker is making ice but leaking alot of water under the fridge and in the freezer. What can I do to shut if off until I repair the ice maker?


pull our your frig. and follow the water line coming into it. the other end should have a valve on it in the floor or the wall. turn off the valve and that will stop any water from coming to your frig for water or ice making.

Sounds like a thermostat problem. There will be a thermostat sensor inside the fridge usually inside the interior light housing.
