The bottle at the back is the compressor, which is normally quite warm. The water from the drain should be emptying into a evaporation tray,heat will then evaporate the water. If this tray is full then the water is not being evaporated. This indicates that the fridge freezer has a refrigerant leak. This leak will need to be repaired and the refrigerator regassed to solve the problem

Ac leaking water inside car


Hi Jamie...
Your drain pipe for the a/c is plugged up with trash...
Look under your car normally on the right hand side you will see a rubber pipe, that will be the a/c drain.
You will need to run a wire or something flexible inside of the pipe to clear the obstruction.
You may have to remove the cover at the a/c inside of the car to get to the obstruction

Water comes out from under the refrigerator every three or four days. I checked everything under. The water hose is find no leaks. The water tray under is empty. Is not a large amount of water maybe...


Hello,
I dont know if you have a side by side or the freezer is on top,but thats a fairly common thing and the following is what i already wrote before what to check when it leaks like your experiencing.

SIDE BY SIDE


The water is from the melted frost of the defrost cycle. The drain at the bottom of the back wall of the freezer is blocked so instead of the water draining into the pan where it will evaperate,it's pooling on the freezer floor and freezing, in many case when the floor indent is full the water will leak onto the floor.By pulling the refrigerator out from the wall,there will be a tube behind the service panel on the right side when looking at it from the rear,that tube can be removed and cleared,then clear the nozzle it connects to inside the freezer.

FREEZER ON TOP
That water is from the melting frost of the automatic defrost cycle. Their is drain in the freezer behind the back wall under the evaperator coil that is blocked, so instead of defrost water draining it's pooling in the freezer or in some case espically on models with the freezer on the top,the water is leaking from the freezer vents into the fresh food compartment.
The way to clear the drain is remove back plate and remove all ice build up and GENTLY make a small hole in drain through then totally flush w/warm water.
The exact location of drain is under the coil behind back freezer plate in the center


I hope this will hepl you to fix that leak,

Im getting water under the vegetable drawer inside my LG refrigerator..what can i do?


Hi boris_sal495,

There are two things that you can check if you are getting water under the vegetable drawer. Kindly refer on the details below:

Reminder:Before doing any checking or repair unplug the refrigerator from power and remember your safety.

1. Clear the Drain Tube - Your refrigerator has a drain that leads to the exterior drain pan beneath the refrigerator. Occasionally this drain can become clogged resulting in standing water inside your refrigerator. The drain is located either on the floor of the refrigerator, beneath the vegetable crisper, or in the wall behind a drain funnel.
Clear the drain by forcing a solution of water and bleach or water and baking soda into it with a basting syringe. If the solution will not flow through, slide a length of 1/4 inch or smaller flexible tubing into the drain tube to push the clog through to the drain pan. Remove the tubing after clearing the clog.

2. Leveling a Refrigerator - It is important for the refrigerator to be level.Check that the refrigerator is level from side to side.If it is not level, adjust one or more of the adjustable leveling feet until it is level. The feet are bolts that can be turned to raise or lower the refrigerator. If they cannot be adjusted with your fingers, use a crescent wrench or pliers.
If you have an ice-maker, it should also be checked for level after first leveling the refrigerator. An icemaker that is out of level will spill water into the ice bin or into the freezer. It can be repositioned by loosening the mounting screws, adjusting it for level and then tighten the screws.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using Fixya.

Your refrigerator has a drain that leads to the exterior drain pan beneath the refrigerator. Occasionally this drain can become clogged resulting in standing water inside your refrigerator. A similar drain exists in the freezer, which when clogged results in ice build up on the floor of the freezer.

The drain is located either on the floor of the refrigerator, beneath the vegetable crisper, or in the wall behind a drain funnel.

Clear the drain by forcing a solution of water and bleach or water and baking soda into it with a basting syringe. If the solution will not flow through, slide a length of ¼ inch flexible tubing into the drain tube to push the clog through to the drain pan. Remove the tubing after clearing the clog.

NOTE-(This may be a leveling issue as well)

It is important for the refrigerator to be level. If it is not level, doors may not open or close properly and may not seal tightly. Also, drainage from the defrost cycle might be impaired as might the ice making cycle. The appliance was engineered based on it being installed in a level position. While there may be some tolerance for out-of-level installation, the appliance will operate at its best when properly leveled.

Place a level on top of the refrigerator near the front. Do not put it on the door because the door may not be aligned with the refrigerator case. Check that the refrigerator is level from side to side. Next turn the level to check that it is level from front to back.

If it is not level, adjust one or more of the adjustable leveling feet until it is level. The feet are bolts that can be turned to raise or lower the refrigerator. If they cannot be adjusted with your fingers, use a crescent wrench or pliers.

If you have an ice-maker, it should also be checked for level after first leveling the refrigerator. An ice maker that is out of level will spill water into the ice bin or into the freezer. It can be repositioned by loosening the mounting screws, adjusting it for level and then re tightening the screws.

4 flashes and beeping


4 flashes indicates a drain failure. Could be obstruction in drain system-first check drainhose for kinks, check where drain hose attaches to wastepipe spigot for blockage. If OK blockage may be in pump- disconnect from power, remove bottom panels to access under machine. Drain pump located front left- remove plug from pump, then there is a plastic tag on top of pump you must push down, then drain pump will turn and come off (it comes off easily if tag pressed correctly, so don't force it!!)
If pump OK, fault will be with water indicator switch-sometimes get full of muck. Open dishwasher door, remove filters and clean out any water from base. Right in the bottom right hand side of sump you will see a round black grill- this is water level indicator switch. If it looks blocked up, advise replacing (you can try cleaning, but replacing is best). To replace, access from under machine-again, this switch turns and pulls out, but can be quite difficult due to it being located behind the heating tube.
So, check hoses and pump, then press and hold start button for 3 seconds- this clears fault and resets machine. Try another cycle-if OK, problem solved. Recommend expert assistence to replace water indicator switch.

Water in floor


sounds like you have a clogged defrost drain tube. removing back panel of freezer will give you acess to drain trough, melt away the ice with a hair dryer, youll find a drain hole under there somwhere,pouring boiling water down the drain will clear it pretty quickly( i use a steam machine purchased from the infomercials works awesome, after you clear it and all water drain down tube wrap a piece of solid copper wirearound the heater( black calrod heater right above the drain trough) and stick it in the whole maybe an inch or so. now everythime the heater comes on to defrost it will prevent the hole from freezing over
