Question about Frigidaire Refrigerators
SOURCE: Leaking water INTO fridge
Your problem is a blocked drain which prevents melt water from the defrost from getting out. You'll have to expose the coils and find the drain hole. It is possible that the problem can be on the other end of the hose...where it hits the evaporation pan in the bottom of the unit.

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!

the middle insulation hasbecome water logged, forma faulty defrost tube, so, every time trhe unit defrost, 2 maybe 3 times a day it will spill water inti the vents, andin to the refrig, the only correct way to fix is to have the enitre center drain block replaced, part not that expensive but labor to install may be, ohter then nussincence, not really affecting machines workings

This is the drain tube that runs in the back of the freezer on the bottom is pluged. Take a sprayer with some hot water in it and flush out the system. Remove the food so that you dont get any of the stuff on it.

you have a blocked drain.when the machine defrosts the ice melts off the coil and the water drains down to the bottom of the machine where the compressor is and the condenser coil.it gets hot down there and the water evaporates.your drain is blocked and the water isn't making it out of the freezer.take out all the food in the freezer,remove anything else in there and remove the back inside wall of the freezer,unplug it or shut down the control,then with a hair dryer melt all the ice,i use a steemer to clean out the drain but you can use a baster or anything that will blow through or force air down the drain to clean it out.when you think it's clear pour hot water down the drain hole to see if the water goes down the hole,if it does then it's clear if it doesn't keep blowing through the line,when you clear it you can buy a heater,all it is is a piece of metal that raps around the heater,you stick it down the hole so when the heater comes on the metal heats up and the water wont freeze in the drain line.you need like a 6 inch long piece of wire from a cable wire or from a wire that you use to hook up a lite,use the ground wire or the copper piece in the cable or lite wire,strip off the casing and stick the wire down the hole and cut it with enough wire to rap around the heater and this should take care of your blocked drain.a steemer works the best,stick it in the hole and blast the steem down through the drain,it clears everything out of it.good luck
