    ice on freezer bottom leaks out door

  • buck12 Aug 17, 2008

    We also have a leak coming from the left side in the freezer. The water is pooling and freezing. Appears to leak when you get water from the door.

    I have the Kenmoore with the fridge on top freezer on bottom. The water is freezing up on the bottom of the freezer and then once a week water leaks out both sides at the bottom all over the floor. Help!

    I too have a similar issue. I've had the unit for appoximately 2 years, and haven't had any problems, until recently. The water (very slow stream) seems to be emanating from the corners of the two exhaust ports that I believe are there to allow the cooled condensed air that flows over the evaporator coils to escape from, and into the freezer compartment. In reviewing the technical data sheet that came with the unit, it appears that the problem could involve the evaporator and or dryer parts. Maybe the evaporator is not working correctly, not cooling the hot water completely that's put out by the condenser, allowing warmer water to enter the evaporator coils, thus the warmer air condenses on the inside plastic walls that surround the evaporator coil, and via gravity, the water runs down the exhaust port walls along the back freezer wall, eventually pooling and freezing on the bottom of the freezer. As I said, this is a recent problem. I bought the unit in 2006, and it's worked fine until now. In reviewing the tech data and circuit diagram, there are a couple fuses used in the system that deal with the heater and ice maker. Of note, the electronic display screen shows no error codes as shown in the MICOM ERROR DIAGNOSIS TABLE, so that's not helping me in diagnosing the problem. I'm a practicing DIYer, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Mr. C130

    water is pooling in the bottom of the freezer. Seems the drain in the rear keeps freezing over. water then leaks out the front left corner onto the floor.

    Same problem

  • Anonymous May 08, 2009

    I have the same issue with water pooling on the bottom of the freezer. The water freezes and then when the next cycle of water pours thru the freezer vent, it flows over the top of the built up ice which then flows thru the door stripping onto the floor. I have to monitor the ice weekly and clean it out by breaking it with a hammer. Wow, if this is how the  "Elite" live I'm about to give up my life style of the rich and famous and see if I can buy an ice box off of the antique road show.

The solution is not accurate. There is no way to get to the aluminum line once the rear panel is removed on my model. There is a drain pan and drain line but the drain line goes up into the bottom of the frig and there is no access from there on.

Frigidaire professional series refrigerator leaking water under door

Hello - Typically when water is coming out from under the refrigerator there could possibly be a loose connection from the house water supply line to the water valve or a cracked drain pan (located underneath the refrigerator). Try confirming that the valve is tightened. If the connection is still leaking, turn off the water supply valve and take the connection apart. You can try using Teflon tape when retightening the connection to ensure a good seal. There could also be a loose water connection to the door. This connection is located on the bottom left of the freezer door.

open the refrigerator door and remove the filter. take a flashlight and look inside the filter housing. now take a long screwdriver and push it into the contact point where the filter makes contact. one of these contacts are probably broken, try either side and while pushing it in, press the dispenser for water. water should spray out from the point where you have inserted the screw driver. don't remember the exact name for the part, but i'm pretty sure thats where your problem is.

Leaking water under the left (freezer) side and into the bottom of the inside of the freezer. Leak is slow and began after the company was here to replace the recalled valve.

I hate to answer with a question but what type of valve and can you see water coming from rear wall of freezer or ice make is over flowing. If you would like my assistance please let me know. I will find the service manual but I think we both at this point will need to ask and answer.Thanks, Sez breeze
Is that the correct model number above your post?

Hi, is the leak coming from the hinge on the freezer door? Do you have ice building up inside the freezer section?

Water leaking

there should be a quick disconnect about 4 inches from the bottom of the door. look behind the toe kick. if it leaks from the disconnect try pushing the plastic lines into the disconnect. the disconnect is about 1.5 inches long and should have red or blue ends. to get the lines out you push the colored ends in while pulling the plastic line out, try cutting off the ends smooth and straight up and down and re-insert. if the water is coming out of the bottom of the door you need to replace the water line in the door.

to get the line out of the door. use a flat blade screwdriver to pry the dispenser cover off the door. there are two slots on the bottom of the dispenser facia. use a pen or something hard for a pivot point and use tape to protect door finish. push on the screwdriver until you think the plastic will break, then push a bit harder and it will pop off. now you can disconnect the facia and remove the screws holding the switches etc. disconnect the water line and pull it through the dispenser. to put the facia back on just hook the top and line it up and press the bottom back on.
