Apparently it is the drain behind the freezer panel on the inside and it is blocked. It needs to be unblocked and cleaned. You remove the food and the rear panel on the inside of the freezer. With a hair dryer (carefully) remove all ice build up and then unblock the drain line going to the pan under the refrigerator. The drain line can be cleaned with bi-carb and hot water (not boiling).

SOURCE: Roper Refrigerator, top freezer leaking water into refrigerator

This is usually caused by a plugged freezer drain. The back wall (or floor) of the freezer may come out to access the drain. Clear out anything visible and run a stiff wire thru it. Test with a cup of water. Hope this helps!

How to remove evaporator cover from inside freezer admiral model hmg64184

Hello Joann Carter,

Make SURE you are electrically UN-PLUGGED.

The repair books tell you to remove all the side rails... pull the screws... Disconnect the temp sensor (if equipped in this area (here you want to start taking lots of pictures))...

The thing is... removing the side rails is usually un-necessary...

A little clever negotiating of the flexible panel... and it can be MANUVERED AROUND (my opinion)...

Further opinion... after a complete open air defrost
(never apply heat (anywhere))... FANS will help... It is possible to blow air UP the defrost drain... & clear it.

Again... Verify you are electrically UN-PLUGGED.

Then negotiate some warm water (never hot) into the
Evaporator-drain pan... Success will be immediately
apparent in the defrost pan...

May take a couple of tries... (straw or flex tubing).

Only failing that... pull out the back panel .

Hope this helps!

Where is the drain located on Frigidaire model r134a? is it the hole on the bottom freezer side?

R134A is not the model number. This is located inside the freezer on a white sticker on the left or right wall. Anyways, the drain is going to be located inside, behind the back wall of the freezer on the floor, directly below the Evaporator coils where all of the "cold" in your entire box is created. If you're referring to a refrigerator, there should be an aluminum tray/pan that all the defrost water drains down into. Sometimes they just freeze over & the hole becomes plugged w/ice. Hope this helps. Tips appreciated. Have a great weekend :)

Three things come to mind:
A) High humidity has overwhelmed the defroster & blocked the passageways so air will not circulate. (Put important food in a cooler, turn the temperature dial to off & leave doors open until ice melts out. Generally overnight. Be prepared to mop up excess water)
B) Defrost timer stopped working. (Generally behind a cover panel on the fridge side. Un-plug unit & remove panel to find a small metal box in the airflow path from the freezer. They generally have provision to manually turn the timer wheel with a screwdriver. Plug back in & allow to run & see if the ice melts. If so, the clock motor is shot. Replacements can be bought on-line)
C) Burned out defroster heating element. Generally older units. (Un-plug & put essentials in a cooler. Remove cover panel on freezer side to expose cooling coils. Allow ice to melt overnight, (again, lots of water). In the AM you can see the glass tube enclosed heater coils. All dark & smokey inside, heater is burned out. Replacements on-line for ~ $75.) If the unit is more than 15 years old, consider a more energy efficient replacement.
Good Luck!

Ice build up bottom of freezer compartment and water leaking from un der the refrigerator i think maybe a drain is plugged and how do i fix it. and the model #mzd2766gew


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.By pulling the ref. 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.

I hope this helps,

Water coming from freezer into refrigerator otherwise appears to be working ok

I will try to give you a better idea of how and why this happens. The problem is that every different model has a different way of leaking. Like a side by side if the defrost condensate drain line is blocked the water will at most leak inside freezer. With a single top freezer the water may just leak down into the fresh food section.

Water leaking inside fridge.

If you remove the back panel of your freezer you will notice what looks like a drain - melted water will go through a drain hole that extends to your refrigerator inside a cup that slowly drains the water through a tube through the back of your refrigerator and down the drip pan. Your cup may appear fine, but maybe there is some obstruction somewhere causing the water not to drain fast enough - so what happens is that the cup will eventually overflow - try to see if you can remove this and pass a long wire down the drain tube at the back to dislodge anything blocking or partially blocking it - see if you can also clean your drain cup, eventually small derbris accumulate. At the back of your freezer panel look for any partial or complete obstruction of the drain hole and its surroundings, which might be iced up.

I myself have had this problem for months, my refrigerator would have water at the bottom accumulate and eventually under the crispers a river of water :)

Cleaning the cup and the drain tube at the back of the fridge and the drain and surroundings at the back of the freezer panel should fix this problem. Sounds like your drain at the freezer level is plugged up and water is backing up and leaking from elsewhere !

Model 106-74269401 mfg date 6/05. Constant pool of water on interior top shelf leaking from freezer above. What is standard repair?

That is most likely the defrost condensate pan inside the freezer has frozen over and closed the drain opening. Once that happens then the water has no where to go but the freezer or the fresh food compartment. Below is a link to different ways of this happening. Just choose the section that resembles your refrigerators problem. The water freezing over does not always need to go to the extreme measure to prevent it. It's possibly something blocking the line between the freezer and the pan under the refrigerator. Let me know what you find, Thanks, Sea Breeze

My freezer is leaking inside the freezer area. I took off the panel on the inside and can see that it is leaking by the top of the coils. The water then freezes at the bottom of the freezer. Again all this...

This water comes from the defrost cycle. The drain hole is probably plugged with food. The drain usually goes to a small pan under the condenser where it eventually evaporates. Look for a hole or slot in the bottom of the unit.
