This is not your defrost water. Look closely at the water filter housing where the hoses connect to it. They are likely leaking. Let me know what you see...defrost water never gets that high...not even close.

My frigidare fridge leaks sporadically


Check the evaporator pan underneath may be full of water. Clogged and dirty coils will not allow air circulation and slows the evaporation down so it overflows. If insied leak, check the drip cup in the center of the fresh food section just below the freezer , if its full of food water will overflow into bottom of fridge.

Subzero 632 drain pan full of water and overflows onto floor


Dear,


Any one who charges that much for a "freon" leak in a 632 and does not replace the evaporator is a complete charlatan. Your "freon" will leak out again and more problems will occur.


regards,

dont rate it until satisfied

My evap pan keeps overflowing


The pan in the inside of the unit or the one underneath for collecting and evaporating the water?
If it's the one inside take the front bottom panel off and blow out the drain line leading down there. If its the pan underneath and it cant keep up with the water flow check to be sure it has some white cotton looking panels in the pan. They are an accessory called a wicking kit designed to absorb the water and as the air blows over them they help evaporate the water. If those are present and in good shape but its overflowing there you may need to get an electric condensate pan.

There is water coming from under the refrig. The overfill water pan is full that is under the freezer. The ice maker is working and so is the water dispenser. The coils are really dusty could this cause...


The overflow pan is the water that is collected during the AUTO DEFROST and usually the water evaporates off before the next defrost cycle. so if there is overflow of water on the collection tank , then the thermostat must be kept a little lower to reduce more frosting.

Evaporator pan overflows. Outside of refrigerator gets hot periodically around the door.


Warm sides-
It's usually caused by the condenser fan which is underneath around back. If it's not running when the compressor runs it will cause the problem you describe. You will need to remove the cardboard backing on the back of the fridge to access the fan.

evaporator pan-
When the water filter is full some are designed for the water to go to the evaporator pan. Check to see if the filter is stopped up.

The fridge keeps leaking water underneath,the freezer part keeps iceing up down the bottom under the draws,the water is the main problem.


Water in the drain overflowing can be the reason for the water spilling,it can be the defrost overflow or the leak from the evaporator tubing's to the drain. So drain off and check perhaps more condensation is the result of the overflow.
The icing can be related to water formation from the food or leak from the evaporator, high frosting can blow the water inside the freezer.
So set the freezer temp a little lower so that the freezer shuts off than to make it run continuously.

Is a Kenmore Elite Upright Frost-Free Freezer supposed to have water leaking from underneath it? Would this be the water accumulating from the "defrost cycle" on it?


Is the drain pan underneath overflowing? If so the water filter may be clogged and the water leaking past it to the pan. The normal amount of water from the defrost cycle shouldn't fill it up. The condenser fan usually evaporates the water by blowing the warm air on the pan.
There could be a leak because or the defrost drain being stopped up but this usually comes out the bottom of the freezer door.
Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.

Drain pan overflowing, evaporator not working ??


The condensor fan and the heat from the compressor help the evaporation of the condensate. Sears has a complete model number system that is confusing I know. Sears made it that way. Not sure why but look around the cold food door while open and look near bottom on the frame just above the kick plate. The number looks like this, (model No. 253.64802400 for example) Find that number and we can go from there, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Drain Pan overflowing


Refrigerators use different methods to eliminate the water, but they all use evaporation of some sort.This works,as most of the water in the drain pan comes from melted ice on the evaporator coil during the defrost cycle, and this is not very much. It sounds like you have excessive water in the pan. You stated the freezer/fredge is working properly. The condenser fan is running, I assume. Cleaning the dust off the coil will help the air flow. Most residential units do not have heating element in the drain pan. Your problem sounds like you are getting too much water in the pan. Have you noticed excessive ice in the freezer? Are the door gaskets in good shape. Does the unit have water and ice in the door? If so, where does the drain to, and has there been high usage of this?
