There is a drain hole behind the panel in the freezer section. Turn fridge off and pull the power plug. Remove all shelves from freezer.Remove the bottom (larger) panel, about 8 screws. Right at the bottom you will find there will be a build up of ice. You need to defrost this ice and allow the hole to defrost. This can be done by gradualy pooring hot water. Do not try to scrape the ice as you risk damaging the defronst thermastat. From the rear of the fridge remove the inspection panel at the bottom. On the right side as you face the rear you'll see a tube.(maybe white). this is were the water SHOULD come out. It just goes into the plastic tray underneath and evapourates. As you defrosts the ice inside, it will take some time. You will start to see your hot water pouring out of this tube. Placing a small container under the tube is a good idea. Make sure the tube is free from any gunk and is flowing freely. Replace all the bits and you should have fixed your fridge. Note. that turning off the fridge at the power source for over two hours allows the computer in the unit to reboot and solve any defrosting issues it may have with its self. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Did you closed the door? or maybe you have too many food in it and the door is a little open. Turn it off for a while and then turn it on, see if it works fine.

I have a very small dribble of water leaking from the bottom of the control panel on the freezer door. Is there a simple fix or do I need a technician? Unit is a SRS615DP.


Maybe and maybe not.
Page 9 of the user manual mentions a anti sweat heater that you can turn on or off.

It maybe that the water line to the water dispenser is leaking
I am including a link to youtube videos about refrigerator water leaks but there is little about Samsung. Hopefully turning on the heater will solve your problem. At least one of the videos shows how to replace the tubing in a different brand of refrigerator.

Below that panel in the freezer (evaporator cover) is the drain trough. Most likely it is clogged.

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.

Samsung twin door fridge water leaking onto floor


I have a Samsung side by side - model RS253BAWW.

Water was leaking onto floor from main refrigerator, not freezer. It was determined to be a blocked defrost drain.

The repair technician removed the trays and food from fridge, remove the screws from the panel at back, disconnected everything and remove panel.
The stainless tray at bottom of fridge as well as panel itself had solid ice blockage.

He placed panel in sink and used something similar to a blow dryer with narrow hose on it to defrost both the panel and drain in fridge. Took him maybe 15 minutes and charged $99 total for the visit.

In future I will do this myself now that I know how but thought it may be useful information to others who are having similar problems.

Water leak


Unplug the refrigerator, open the door and get a blow dryer and warm up the freezer. wait until the water stop dripping out or about 12 to 24 hours and then you can plug it back in . it will work for 2 to 3 weeks. To unplug the drain.defrost the freezer .remove the back cover. Use a pipe cleaner to clear the drain. pour a few cups of hot water down the drain. the drain hose may be just pulled off ...it must let the water drip in the pan.

I have water leaking out of a samsung side by side fridge/freezer


the water is coming from the freezer when is defrosts. the drain line is in the back wall of the freezer and may be clogged up with ice. clean out the freezer and pour some hot water in the very back of the freezer, this will hopefully unclog the drain. if not, then you have to take the back wall out of the freezer to get directly to the drain line. there should just be a couple screws holding it; it is just an aluminum or plastic panel.
 
if you already checked this and think it is a different problem then let me know, i will help you figure it out.

Samsung rs21wcns has a leak


I found my leak, after checking all lines, connectors, couplers, behind the second to bottom drawer from what appears to be a cooling resevoir. It appears the seams are slightly leaking on both sides. I found water pooling under the bottom drawer and then leaking out the front and followed it back. My Samsung is model RS2556SH
