I have a water leak inside of my maytag fridge and it leaks out onto the floor from the inside. What is the couse of this problem?


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.

Tip

Water Leaking Inside Refrigerator


If water leaks inside your refrigerator
(and it WILL, at some point) you can fix
it yourself. My 26 year old fridge was leaking
and I fixed it completely. It is a Kenmore
top freezer, bottom refrigerator model.

In the good old models, one had to defrost the
fridge every few months manually.

In the recent models, the fridge defrosts automatically,
once or twice a day, and the water is supposed to drain
down a long drain tube into a pan located at the bottom of
the fridge. This collected water in the pan evaporates
by the heat under the fridge.

Now the drain tube can get clogged, by food debris and/or
ice. Thus when the water cannot drip through the drain tube
the water drips inside the fridge.

The drain tube is located behind the fridge, which is pretty
easy to take it out and clean. However usually the clog is
not in the long tube but in the connector assembly located
in the backside of the fridge that leads to the long drain tube.

To get to the connector assembly, you need to unscrew and
take out the back panel of the freezer compartment. You would
see the evaporator coil and a tray under the coil where the water
is supposed to drip through. If you find the tray completely frozen
with ice, let it melt off. To speed up melting, you may blow
hot air via a hair dryer. Once the ice is clear, you should see
a drain hole in the middle of the tray. This could be clogged,
which needs to be unclogged.

Next unscrew and open the thermostat control assembly located
in the inside of the back of the refrigerator compartment just above
the light bulb fixture. Once you take the cover off (you will
also have to take the knobs out) you will see a small tray cup about
2" x 2" x 1/2" into which water from the top freezer compartment
drain hole is supposed to drain. Pull out the tray cup, and if clogged,
unclog it, clean it and put it back.

To check if the drain works ok, pour some water on the tray
under the evaporator coil (top freezer compartment) and see if it
immediately drains into the tray located at the bottom of the fridge
at the floor level. If it does, you got it; and you can assemble things
back in the reverse order you took the pieces apart.

Needless to say, use a vacuum cleaner with a long suction tube to clean
out all the collected mess under the fridge. No matter how good
your housekeeping is, the bottom of the fridge will be full of dust.
With lot of patience (I mean lots of it) you should be saving hundreds
of dollars. Attached are some pictures I took. Call me before you dig !

My Kemore refrigator is leaking water from bottom,I keep moping and I put news papers under to absorbe the water.where is the water leaking from ? Its about 8years not sure, but never a problem.It has a...


Under your fridge, there is a drain hose which goes into a removable tray on the bottom of your refrigerator.This is where the water from the automatic defroster goes. The heat from the motor dries the water up, but occasionally the hose becomes plugged, or does not set into the tray. You may have to pull the fridge away from the wall, go behind the fridge, get down on the floor, find the tray, in the front or back, check that the hose is in place and patent. If the tray is full of water, there may be a heating or evaporating element that is not working to dry up the water, in which case you could always manually empty the tray till you you find a solution. Good luck.

I have the same fridge and what sounds like the same problem. I believe the problem is that the defrost element has died and therefore the defrost cycle is not taking place. I can't seem to get the entire back panel off to get access to the element though.

I did remove everything from the fridge and defrost manually. Used hot water and a piece of wire to clear the drain hole, which was successful.

I advanced the defrost cycle timer manually to see if the element warmed up, which it did not. I believe this is a common problem with a lot of fridges, but especially this model.

I don't know where I can get a replacement element, nor how I get access to it without breaking the fridge. I'm not that confident to just start ripping it to pieces. I'll be sure to post back if I find anything.

My frig is leaking water & bottom tray is full


you need to change the filter on the bottom of the refrigerator, take off the outside cover on bottom of fridge and on the left hand side right above the tray that keeps filling up there is a round filter that unscrews. unscrew it and replace the filter. You can get the filters at Lowes or Home Depot for about 20 bucks, hope this helps.

Refrigerator has water leak


Had the same problem with mine. Got a technician to have a look. Inside the fridge at the back there's an overflow tray. CHeck if this is not blocked. Clear it by putting a tray behind your fridge under the overlfow pipe and pour hot water through the overflow tray inside the fridge. Sometimes food gets stuck in there and nobody thinks to clear this out. Mine was easily unblocked and now its stopped leaking.

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
