Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

Every 12 hours or so a small pool of water emerges from underneath my refrigerator. I also note that, under the shelves inside the fridge section, water is condensing under the shelves. I have tried defrosting, cleaning and washed the gasket although I suspect that the gasket may have lost some of its magnetism.

When defrosting, were you able to check the back of the unit inside if the panel accumulated ice? You may need to unscrew it t check the back side. Sometimes the water or ice comes from that area. Check also of the thermostat located in that area may have been frozen which sends a wrong reading to the control unit. When you have cleaned the unit make sure you have cleaned the drains for debris. It may also be a problem with just the drain which sends water into the tray underneath. It may not be aligned.

I have a whirlpool refrigerator, model GR9FHMXPQ. I got it about 4 years ago. When it was delivered, it had several pieces of styrofoam lodged in the inside ceiling of the fridge section (below the freezer...


You need to remove all of the styrofoam packing material.
Any insulation material would be installed inside the body of the fridge/freezer. The packing material is there so anything inside the compartment (like metal shelves, plastic holders, etc. don't bounce around during shipping and either scratch up the interior, or break. That is all that it is there for.

Water is getting into the refrigerator. there is


If the fridge has the freezer on top - the problem is in clogged drain under the evaporator.Whenever the defrost cycle is activated (every 6-12 hours), the water will drain not to the drain pan underneath the fridge, but into the air vents between the sections. Depending on the make/model to get to the drain line you may need either:
  • to remove the back cover in the freezer section;
  • remove the bottom of the freezer section;
  • remove the console with controls on the ceiling of the fresh food section
  • get behind the fridge, find the drain line going to the pan under the fridge remove the drain line and clean.
Good luck.

Bottom of fridge collects water


Hello there:
I have written a few steps for you to follow and try ok?
  1. Manufacturers have different ways to dispose of the water created during automatic defrost cycles. The most common design routes the water down a rubber tube on the back of the fridge to a tray beneath. This tube often gets plugged with breadcrumbs, peas etc. and can generally easily be removed and cleaned.
  2. Make sure the end of the hose is sitting in the defrost tray.
  3. If your hose was not plugged and you have found water running down the back wall inside the fridge or a pool under the bottom crisper has formed. Check if there is a small funnel located on the back wall near the top inside the fridge. It can also get plugged; you can use a small wire and work it in and out of the hole.
  4. Some designs do run the water down the back wall and have a drain hole under the crisper, make sure it is not plugged.
I hope that this has been verry helpfull for you
best regards michael

Whirlpool has water drip inside fridge


sounds like a drain clog in the freezer compartment above. remove the freezer rear panel and totally defrost the evaporator area, directly under the evap you see( under all taht ice) a small drain hole that has become frozen over, try defrosting with either a hair dryer( not a heat gun too much heat youl melt everything) or by pouring hot water donw the drain until you get a free flow of water down the tube. after its clear reassemble and you should be fine

Samsung model srs536 side by side . Water leaking from freezer side. Can you help


There is a drain hole behind the panel in the freezer section. Turn fridge off and pull the power plug. Remove all shelves from freezer.Remove the bottom (larger) panel, about 8 screws. Right at the bottom you will find there will be a build up of ice. You need to defrost this ice and allow the hole to defrost. This can be done by gradualy pooring hot water. Do not try to scrape the ice as you risk damaging the defronst thermastat. From the rear of the fridge remove the inspection panel at the bottom. On the right side as you face the rear you'll see a tube.(maybe white). this is were the water SHOULD come out. It just goes into the plastic tray underneath and evapourates. As you defrosts the ice inside, it will take some time. You will start to see your hot water pouring out of this tube. Placing a small container under the tube is a good idea. Make sure the tube is free from any gunk and is flowing freely. Replace all the bits and you should have fixed your fridge. Note. that turning off the fridge at the power source for over two hours allows the computer in the unit to reboot and solve any defrosting issues it may have with its self. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Refrigerator has water leak


Had the same problem with mine. Got a technician to have a look. Inside the fridge at the back there's an overflow tray. CHeck if this is not blocked. Clear it by putting a tray behind your fridge under the overlfow pipe and pour hot water through the overflow tray inside the fridge. Sometimes food gets stuck in there and nobody thinks to clear this out. Mine was easily unblocked and now its stopped leaking.
