Question about Refrigerators

Condensation is forming on the glass door and dripping onto floor boards. How do we stop the condensation. It does say to empty drain tray but we cannot find it and instruction manual does not tell you where to find it. All it tells you for fixing condensation is to wipe with a dry towel

The drain tray is under the fridge often times set back a little bit. Remove the kick plate by pulling from one side then the other side, strait forward till it pops off. The kick plate is a plate as close to the floor as you can get on the front side of the fridge going the entire width of the bottom of the fridge. Now get eye level with the underneath of the fridge. Center your view on the underneath of the fridge. The drain tray is right there. Pull it out, carefully as it is probably full of water, and dump the water out of it. Replace the drain tray and then replace the kick plate. Check the drain pan once a week or so and you should have no more water leaking on your floor. Hope this helps.

Sounds like dripping water when on


Water, or in this case - condensation will be created and drip from the cooling coils inside the unit outdoors, if installed correctly. This is a normal condition. Like a cold glass of water sitting on a table or counter on a hot, muggy day; condensation will form. The amount of condensation forming on the glass - and cooling coils of the A/C - is directly related to the amount of humidity in the air.

Some A/C units have fans that not only force cool air out the front of the unit - but also spray condensate on the condenser coils (the coils that get hot and are visible from the outside) to help cool them down.

If water is dripping indoors - the A/C is tilted inward or drain holes on the bottom edges of the rear (outdoors) are clogged. Adjust the A/C support(s) so that it is tilted back (the bottom rear should be about 1/2" or 10mm lower than the bottom front) and inspect & clear obstructions from the drain holes as needed.

I hope this helps & good luck!

I have a Intertherm Heat Pump system in my Manufactured Home, Model # E2EB-015HB; Serial # E2E0121006692. Condensation is forming on the Coils and the water fills up the area under the coils, drips down...


There is a drip pan bit the middle is open to allow air flow through the coil and into your ducting. If the drain for the drip pan is clogged it will fill up and overflow onto your furnace and then to the floor.If that is what is happening then clean out the drain tube running down the front of the furnace and it should empty the drip pan and solve your problem.

You also need to have your furnace checked for water damage in the electrical components, if these have gotten wet then you run the risk of a fire. Please consider calling an expert in your area to inspect your furnace and make sure the drain line is clear.

Freezer ice forming on the bottom inside then leaking onto the floor


You have a blocked drain.
There is a condensation drain at the back above the pump with a small tube that is meant to deposit water onto the pump for evaporation - the drain gets blocked so the condensation flows out through the front door. Also makes big rivers of ice at the back of your freezer behind the bottom shelf??
Solution - Dismantle the inside of the freezer - take all the plastic trim outof the back of the freezer with a screw driver - don't worry, it's only trim and goes back easily. Eventually you will see the drain collector (flat V shape) and at the point of the V is a small hole, pour warm water in this till it drains to the pump at the back, instead of down onto your floor at the front. You may need to clean the hole too as it gets gunked up.
You can also help by finding the drain tube above the pump at the back and gently inserting a chopstick or similar untill the warm water empties onto your hand !
Takes about an hour all in all and has been fixed for a year now on mine.

My kenmore elite refrig keeps leaking water from what appears to be condensation. It gets so bad that the ice maker door freezes shut and water actually drips on the floor. The freezer is set to 0 while...


The high level of condensation is due to constant opening of the fridge when the frost develops. It is required to defrost off the condensation and if this has an auto mode timer for defrost , then it is possible that it is not working.
The water must drain out to the drain tank but since it is formed out of the freezer the water flows out of the collection tray.

Air conditioner condensation dripping into the floor.


Check the drain hose, chances are it came loose from the fitting on the AC unit. Make sure the hose goes through the floor board.

Water leaking


the bottom tray/salad compartment will always get a fair amount of condensation because they are glossy plastic(bathroom paint is matt)the only "cure" is kitchen towel under the tray and remove once a week.as for the drain it is normally at the back and does collect a fair amount of "moss"in the tube,pour some clorine bleach down to clear any out.the design of the shelves directs the side/back condensation down the drain.

Water dripping from underneath


The water is most likely coming from the condensation that's drained out of the refrigerator during the automatic defrost cycle.

Be sure the bottom fan is running and clean out the condensation tray. Warm air pulled across the condenser coils is supposed to evaporate the condensate water. If the fan is not running when the refrigerator cycles on, replace it. This would also result in the refrigerator running excessively without cycling off.

While you're working under the unit, be sure to clean off the coils too.

Good luck. Hope this was helpful.

Water on btm of glass shelves and water in bottom of frig


sounds like you have a gap in the door seal, which results in condensation forming inside unit. Use a blow dryer to heat the seal around the door and ensure that the fit is tight.
