SOURCE: Water build up in the

Water build up under the fresh food drawers is usually associated with an air intrusion from the exterior. Warm air intruding into the fresh food compartment creates excess condensation, which eventually accumulates on the bottom.
Some causes are:
1. Internal obstruction, not allowing door(s) to close tightly enough.
2. Deteriorated door seal, (torn, pinched, deformed, misaligned,).
3. Light not turning off when door closed,(faulty door switch, misaligned door, loose hinges allowing door to drop).
Make sure all drawer have nothing obstructing their closure, and door shelves have nothing extending beyond the support bars.
Other less obvious causes may be creating this issue also and are not normally addressable by the novice servicer.

Hope this helps find the cause.

PSC23NSTESS FREEZING VEGTABLES


Side by Side ModelsIf foods, such as fruits and vegetables, in the refrigerator are freezing, it can be caused by several things. First, check the controls. They should be set at "C" and "5" or "5" and "5". The proper fresh food temperature is between 38 and 42 degrees Fahrenheit. The freezer should be between 0 and 8 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • If food in the bottom of the refrigerator is freezing, this could be caused by a refrigerator not having enough food to absorb the cold air.
  • If food in the door is freezing, move the door bins up or down so they are one notch away from freezer vents (Side by Side models only).
  • The fresh food control should be at the normal setting of 5.

First, check the controls. They should be set at "C" and "5" or "5" and "5". The proper fresh food temperature is between 38 and 42 degrees Fahrenehit. The freezer should be between 0 and 8 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Since the cold air coming into the fresh food section originates in the freezer above, the rear of the top shelf will be the coldest spot in the fresh food area. Avoid placing delicate items that freeze easily on the back half of this shelf.
  • If food is freezing in the produce (fruits and vegetables) or meat pan, it may be that the temperature controls are not set high enough. Since cold air naturally falls, the pans can get too cold if the refrigerator is not running long enough to maintain good air circulation. Adjust both controls up one notch.

Water collects in bottom of refrigerator under fruit/vegetable bins


When a fridge goes in to defrost it melts the ice on the coils in the interior of the freezer. Often times there is a drain that runs to a sliding tray under the fridge. If this is clogged you will get water building up under the bins.

Water accumulates under the vegtable and fruit bin


You may have a pluged drain tube and prevents the water from draining into the drip pan below the fridge.you will have to remove the tube from rear of fridge and clean.If you cannot get into the tube you will need to remove the rear panel inside the freezer compartment.and then pour hot water down from there till it breakes free.If your freezer is iced up you wil need 1of3 things first defrost timer second defrost thermostat third defrost element.Hope i helped:)

Drain hole in top fridge section flooding and icing up under vegtable storage draws.


maybe you fridge is tilting to far forward some times a fridge needs to lean back slightly only by 5 degs so adjust the foot t the front. this will mke the water flow towards the back and also help keep the doors sealed better
