Condensation is usually formed from a weak or problem with the seal around the door check to see if there are any rips or tears or if there are any areas where the seal is bunched up if it is replace the seal. if there is no problem with the seal you would also need to check if you unit has water going to that door as well that you dont have a small leak in the tubing going to the water dispensor. Most of the time this is due to the door seals going bad also remember if you do need to install new door seals to use petroleum jelly after you install them and to leave your door shut for at least two hours afterwards this causes a much better molding to the actual door after u do this if you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to help others in similar situations in the future Thanks Rick

My whirlpool refrigerator Model ET18PKX6W00 leaks water under vegetable bins


Check behind the bins for a condensation tray/hose. Most refrigerators have these as they develop condensation due to the temperature differences when opening and closing the door. The tray catches the condensation, and drains it to a tray under the fridge. Here it evaporates when the compressor runs. Sometimes things block the tray or the hose gets clogged with gunk. clean out the tray/hose and hopefully your problem will end.

Hi, I have a refurbished RFG297AARS from Samsung that we purcased as a refurb about 7 days ago. On day 1-3, a puddle of water formed under the back right underside of the fridge, without the water line...


Chances are its either the drip line or drip tray.. there is a drain to route the condensation pulled out of the fridge and freezer that leads to a drip pan underneat the unit.

Either the drip tray was not installed.. reinstalled incorrectly or the drain tube is leaking or no longer directed to it, or it's overflowing due to excess condensate.

Best of luck!

Water leaks from under the middle but not all the time maybe once or twice per month


condensation normally drains thru a tube at the bottom of the frig to a drip pan under the condenser coil (under the frig) .. the water normally just evaporates from the pan .. if there is too much moisture in the frig, that usually means a door is ajar (not closing completely) or the seal on the door is not sealing properly .. warm moist air from the room getting in will cause too much condensation .. the drip pan may overflow ... you should check the drip pan for damage (clean the condenser while you are down there) .. also check the tube that carries the condensation (back bottom of the frig) .. it has a one way valve (lets water out only) that becomes stuck sometimes and needs cleaning.. if there is a large amount of moist things in the frig then that an cause the problem as well .. just put those things in plastic bags or containers to eliminate that problem ..

CONDENSATE LOOP


Hi, A condensate loop in a refrigerator is any device that produce heat in certain areas, most commom is around refrigerator door, which are mullion heaters that produce mild heat, to prevent ice build up around doors, prevent door gasket from getting stuck, another type of condensate loop are found under or back of most refrigerator, hot gas line from compressor, sometimes are loop under ref. or other location of ref. before it is connect to ref. condenser, most ref. condensate loop are used to evaporate water collected from evaporator. to prevent clouding of glass on doors, etc, and it could be electrical, or mechanical, base on applications.

Water is leaking from the bottom in the front left side of side by side maytag. water line is ok not leaking. can't see where it is coming from.


the water for the dispenser (ice/water dispenser in the freezer door) comes from under the frige then up thru the bottom hinge of the freezer door .. it then goes inside the door up to the dispenser .. its a plastic hose and it has to twist near the hinge each time the door is opened .. thats where it usually breaks or develops a pin hole leak .. you can replace the whole hose or just the damaged section if that easier ... since the bottom freezer.hinge where that hose comes up thru, is at the position of your leak then i suspect thats your trouble ... ..also check the condensate pan to make sure its not full .. thats a flat pan under the fridge ..you can usually get acess to it by removing the front kick panel at the bottom of the frige .. if thats full then look for a door seal leak (damaged rubber seal) ... a broken seal or open door will allow moisture to condense inside the machine ..that runs down into the condensate pan where it normally evaporates .. but a problem (like open door) will fill it up to overflow in time ....

Water on floor at front right of refrigerator


Yep got a wood floor 1/2 way up do to water leak.

First lets decide where your leak actually is.

Fact: If the drain pan is dry does not mean that the water being disposed of during defrost is not getting to the pan, It could also mean that the water that is reaching the pan is being evaporated like it is suppose to be. So we have to find your source of the water first then decide on what is causing it.

Areas to consider:
1"Inside" coming out the front from under the door? This is most likely a stopped up drain pan. A cold area that is not suppose to be cold like when you have a freezer coil that is suppose to be defrosting and is not... See below for a more complete ideas list of things to check under Possibility.

2"Outside not underneath" The corner of the door also could indicate (if you have water in the door) a worn out water line or a kink in it that has finally started to leak. Turn off the water to the refrigerator for 2 or 3 days and see if the problem disappears. If so you know whats going on and can approach it from the door area.
3"Outside underneath" The corner could also be where the water is running to from someplace under the fridge. The drain pan drain line is the most common. Inspect it and repair as needed, maybe its just not over the pan. A new house keeper not acquainted with this box may have knocked it out during vacuuming just put it back over the pan. IF The sealed system has had refrigerant added it could be from an over charge and frost on the suction line defrosting during a shutdown.

Possibility's:


1 There is a drain that carries away the water under the cooling coils. These coils are in the freezer section.

2 The damper going to the crisper( s) is open too far allowing cold air to cause condensate on the fridge wall or bottom.

3 The freezer section is not defrosting and there is a spot where the ice buildup is allowing conductive cooling into the refrigerator section and therefore is allowing condensation on the refrigerator wall or ceiling.

4 The refg section has a heater (possibly not positive) in the area of the door frame, or it may have a "power saver" switch. This switch and the heater (if it has a heater it may not have a switch) are designed to stop condensation on the refridg while running. I fit is placed in the "power save" mode it turns off the heater. But, if you live in extream humidity (Great lakes east side or Gulf coats Houstion...) the humid air will condensate water out and it will collect and settle on the floor.

5 Door gaskets are not sealing especially on the bottom of the door. This allows warmer air into the fridge section and it is condensation on floor under the crisper.

If you check all of these items and still cant find it please post back and tell me what you did find. So I can help you more. Please rate me as much as possible as Im trying to keep my average up and do the things that will actually educate and help people.

THANK you for using fixya and good luck..

The fridge is constantly leaking water from inside. Just above the vegetable drawers there is a hole where the water is constantly leaking from. What could be the problem?


The water is probably from the condensor coils in the freezer when the unit goes through a defrost cycle. The water should go to a drain pan under the refrigerator and then evaporate. Is there something blocking the water from continuing to go to the bottom of the refrigerator?
