Ice build-up on the bottom of the freezer drawer


Water on the freezer floor has only two sources, 1) ice maker overflow/leak, or 2) defrost drain plugged. For the first you can turn off the ice maker and shut off the supply water for a few days to see if the problem recurs. If this is the problem determine if the water fill valve leaks or the ice maker is the problem and replace the offender. For the second, thaw out and clear all the ice, paying special attention to the drain located under the freezer (cooling) coil. Then clear the blockage from the drain tube. BE CAREFUL AND DO NOT USE WIRE OR SHARP ITEMS as this can pierce a hole in the drain requiring replacement, not something you want to do or pay for. A turkey baster and hot water are useful tools to flush out the blockage allowing water to drain freely into the defrost drain pan under the refrigerator.

Hi,
You have a common problem of a clogged drain, in the back bottom of the freezer, behind the shelf and drawers, you will find a drain pan that has frozen completely over with a ice sheet. This has caused defrost water to run forward and collect under your racks in the freezer. I would advice you to turn off unit, and remove all the ice collected in the freezer, clear the pan with warm water, then restart your unit back up.
Once the pan and drain tube is clear, your unit should be fine.
I hope this helps

U-line UC02175 water inside pooling under veg drawer, icemaker supply turned off, no water in catch pan inside back


Well sounds like your ice maker evaporator drain hole is frozen, every time the unit goes into defrost cycle, water backs up and leaks down to the drawer. You can try turn off the refer for 48hrs with the doors open, most case it will reset by it self. If it is happening again in few weeks, then you evaporator drain pan heater is not working. Also make sure the doors are shut all the time.

Water collects under the produce bins at the bottom and leaks out


Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


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.

Water is leaking under the refrigerator. This is


If everything else on the refrigerator seems fine (freezing and refrigerating are fine), then you probably have a problem with the drain hose under the evaporator coil. On frost free freezers, there is a heater that comes on periodically to melt off all the frost on the evaporator coil, and that defrosted frost (water) goes out a drain hose and collects in a pan at the back of the unit where it can evaporate.

Either the drain is clogged with ice inside the freezer, (in which case you might notice ice building up on the bottom of the freezer, or perhaps water collecting on the bottom of the refrigerator if your freezer is on top) OR there is something wrong with the pan at the back of the refrigerator, like a crack, or it somehow got tilted so that the water pours out. It is located behind the panel on the back.

Or perhaps, and this would really ****, the water line that supplies your ice maker is leaking, if you have one. If you do have one, I would recommend turning the water line to the fridge off before pulling the fridge out.

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.

Water pooling underneath bottom drawers


Find the drain line from the freezer to the evaporation pan near the motor. Often the line is visible on the back of the fridge. That line is plugged either with food residue or the collection point in the freezer is solid ice. The self defrost feature melts the frost and drains it to the evap pan. If you remove the floor from the freezer area, you will see the collection point. When the line gets plugged with food, no water drains and then freezes to block the line even worse. So, if there is ice at the collection point, remove it somehow, maybe a hair dryer, and then clear the line by blowing compressed air from the bottom of the drain hose through to the collection point.

Frididaire side by side refrigerator- water freezing in bottom


Frozen or Plugged Defrost Drain

On Side By Side Refrigerator


The defrost drain pan is located at the bottom of the freezer compartment behind the back wall of the freezer. On some models the pan is accessible without removing the back panel and others are not.


Once you get to the defrost drain pan use a hair dryer to melt the ice from the pan.


Once the ice is removed use a turkey baster like this one: Turkey Baster http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?PartID=428708&PPStack=1

To squirt hot water into the drain hole to clear the drain.

When the drain is clear you should hear or see the water you are squirting into the hole enter the pan under or behind the refrigerator.
