This is what it sounds like to me. There is a drain hole for the defrost water to drain down to the "drip pan" If that hole in the drain pan is clogged. Then when the defrost system melts away the frost in the cooling coils. Every 6 or 8 hours. The water will accumulate in the bottom of the freezer compartment and turn into ice. This is a very common problem.
The solution.

Put the food in the freezer and fridge into coolers and pack with Ice. Get the 99 cent coolers at the supermarket and buy some Ice there too.

Shut the fridge down and open the freezer door. chop out the Ice in the bottom of the freezer compartment, but not in the drain area directly below the coils. that will be hard to get to and you may damage the fridge if you just chop away.

To speed up the process, get some hot water in a glass and pour it into the area below the coils
(that should be a solid block of Ice as well). If you cant get to this easily, just wait for the fridge to thaw out naturally.

After it has thawed out, you should be able to locate the drain tube in the bottom of the small tray
below the coils. Stick a flexible piece of wire, or pipe cleaner or something of the sort into it to completely unclog it. So when you pour water into that tray, it immediately drains out completely.
into the "drain pan" located below the freezer compartment in the base of the fridge.

I hope this helps,
Best Regards,
Mark

Still sounds like the water valve that you turned off is leaking. The only sure way is to remove the feed tube from the water cut off and that way you can find out if the valve is leaking.

Every time ice maker runs, water accumulates at the bottom of the fridge. It is a bottom freezer model made 9-2013. What could be plugged?


Hi,

Check the ice maker fill cup, it could be full of water or ice and all the water misses the ice maker. Check the fill line in the freezer to make sure its in the full cup to the ice maker. CHeck the drain under the evaporator in the freezer to see if it is open and obstructed. Thats what I would look for. Good Luck

I have a Samsung bottom freezer top fridge RB215LASH. Water leaks from the inside back panel down under the crisper. The drain is not clogged. Their is no problem with the evaporator coils freezing...


OK, first there is only two ways water can be entering the fridge under any circumstances, one is through the Ice Maker feed line coming from your wall to the back of the fridge and into the ice maker. The other is from the ice trays themselves leaking or overflowing or the filter itself is leaking. Look at the side walls of your refrigerator, are there water streaks running down the side? Have you reset the ice maker since you did your repairs? Have you replaced the filter lately?

Usual Causes

If the water pressure is too high, the ice tray can over fill or water can splash out. You can turn the supply shutoff valve to reduce the water flow. See the diagram below. If the ice cube tray has residual pieces of ice in the bottom, remove the pieces by pressing the reset button. You may have to do this several times to clear all the ice out of the tray.

Get back to me and I know you provided a lot of information, but this is a inline water issue relating to the ice maker and not really thinking it could be anything else. So if you can give me more information about the form in which this happens, such as you find the water after the trays are filled or if this is a constant but minimal flow, large flow, we can concentrate our plan towards this are of the repairs and diagnosis. Look forward to hearing from you soon.

Ice maker leaking


Are you sure it's the ice maker that's leaking? We have this model & ours accumulates a HUGE iceberg in the bottom of the freezer, but the water seems to be coming out of the back, at the bottom of the back panel, where the vents are.

I have water in my refrigerator on the shelves and in some areas it is freezing?


Could be a clogged condensate drain. Since you did not give a model #, I will assume this has the freezer on top. When it goes into defrost, the water cannot go down the drain hose to the drain pan and accumulates as ice in the freezer, below the bottom liner and may drip into the fridge. Empty the freezer and open the fridge door. The open fridge door can help thaw the drain. Remove the screws holding the bottom of the freezer liner and remove the liner. If there is ice below it, the drain is clogged. Remove as much as possible by hand and then use a hair dryer to carefully melt the ice at the back of the freezer. Blot up any water from the melted ice and concentrate on clearing the 1/2" hole in the center back. That is the drain. When you think the drain is clear, check it with a large glass of hot water. This can be take some time. When done, reassemble, but also make sure the fridge is tilted to the back by adjusting the legs at the front bottom corners of the fridge. You may have to take the grill off the bottom of the fridge to do this. The legs screw down to lengthen them. Adjust them far enough down that the fridge door swings shut by itself. This will help the water down the drain before the fridge comes out of defrost, starts cooling and freezes it in the drain hose.

Ice accumulation on the bottom of the freezer


Your drain line is clogged, that is located behind the white wall inside of the freezer. The water comes from defrost cycle, that happens every 8-12 hours. You need to defrost it and snake it.

Kenmore 795-75202400 icemaker problem.


Good day,
Either the water valve opens to fill the ice maker cavity, and doesn't shut off soon enough, causing the ice maker to overflow.
Normal file time is approx. 7 seconds.
This is the most common problem.
As well, it is possible the micro switch in the ice-maker that tells the valve to open and close has malfunctioned.
This is all based on the fact that the freezer maintains a normal temperature.
To test the freezer for consistency, place a plastic glass in the freezer half full of water.
Check it in 8 hours. It should be frozen solid. Then place the glass in a plastic bowl, and lay the glass on it's side. Recheck in 24 hours. The ice should remain in the glass.
If not, there is a problem with the refrigeration system.

Superba fridge 1992 occasonal water under bottom freezer drawer


you have a frozen defrost drain. in order to fix this you will need to remove all shelves and basket out of the freezer. then remove rear evap cover. one youve gained access to this area you will see at the bottom of the coil an aluminum pan that most likely wil be iced over. clear away this ice then try to flush out the drain line with warm water. sometimes its neccessary to force water into drain line with a large syringe or turkey baster. this should fix ya up.
good luck and thx for using fixya Peyton
