    I have the same issue. The fridge temp shows 53, but varies couple of degrees up and down. The fridge compartment had a water leak.

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.

My Maytag MZD2766GES is leaking water to the bottom of my freezer, which, when it get alot starts leaking all over the floor. where is this coming from?


The water is from the melted frost of the defrost cycle. The drain at the bottom of the back wall of the freezer is blocked so instead of the water draining into the pan where it will evaperate,it's pooling on the freezer floor and freezing, in many case when the floor indent is full the water will leak onto the floor.By pulling the refrigerator out from the wall,there will be a tube behind the service panel on the right side when looking at it from the rear,that tube can be removed and cleared,then clear the nozzle it connects to inside the freezer.

I hope this helps you to stop the leak,

The Whirlpool side-by-side refrigerator, model ED2KVEXVQ01 occassionally leaks water onto the floor. There could be a cup or more of water, but the problem has occurred a few times, but may go weeks or...

sometimes we overload our refrigerators and the doors will not close properly, next time you notice the water see if your doors are closed tightly and the seals engaged tightly. My wife has this habit of not checking after she has put away the remains of a big dinner or BBQ and I find drips of condensate water all over the floor as a result. The defrost collection pan overfills and the excess water goes on the floor. once the doors are closed properly the problem goes away.

Water is leaking inside the house

The drain that should be carrying the condensate water outside is stopped up. Compressed air works well to clear the drain.

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.

Water is leaking onto back seat from both sides on a v reg pug 406 , the seals seem fine and i`ve just cleaned them will see what happens but any more info on this problem will be grateful

This could be coming in from a few places. As well as checking seams, i would suggest checking your floor pans... Many times rust will slowly eat thru the floor pans, and allows water to be soaked up... Get the car up in the air ( or climb on under it). Tap on the "floor" from underneath where the rear Foot area would be. If it seems rusty or weak or you can see visable damage. this could be your culprit, even if it isn't rusted through completely. This is a very very common problem with cars in my area , as I live in northern USA. Alot of snow = alot of salt on roads = alot of rusty floor pans :)

This could also be coming from your B - Beams. When your tires displace water. it splashes them against the inside wheel well and tire guard.. Under that guard lies your car body. If this has rust in /on it that has penetrated all the way through, the water is getting thrown "into" the body panels, which is leaking through to your seats. Hope this gave you a little more information on places to look.
