Question about Refrigerators

Open Question

I have a whirlpool refrigerator with a top freezer model #ET1LFKXKQ00 that has water leaking into the refrigerator. It is pooling on the top shelf in the refrigerator and on the bottom of the refrigerator. It does not have an ice maker and is not connected to water. Both the freezer and the refrigerator appear to still be working. Where is the water coming from? The fridge is nearly 10 years old. It was purchased in Oct 2001.

SOURCE: lg refrigerator LFX25960SW

the answer to the problem from a LG training class is... if the bottom left side of the refer is freezing food the liner has split no fix at this time. some people have beEn able to turn off the ice maker and the food will stop freezing. the ice maker has a fan in the freezer that blows all the cold air up the ice making Cobby.

DO THIS ONLY IF OUTA WARNTEE
for most of you with bad ice makers you could drill a hole in the very bottom of the ice maker towards the front right under the little metal arm in the wight plastic AND DONT DRILL DEEP just enough to put a hole in the outer case then hit it with a blow-dryer for a little bit to remove ice that's blocking the gear on that arm this works 5 outs 10 times

SOURCE: water is dripping into refrigerator

If it's the same as our GE fridge, there's a tube in the back of the fridge on the outside with an S shaped curve in it that may be plugged up with dust and/or dirt. Clean it out to let the water get through.
Hope this helps.

Your refrigerator has a defrost drain blockage behind the evaporator in your your freezer compartment. Some models like yours have leak in the turns as the water leaves the freezer. I recommend that you unplug and remove the cover to the evaporator and check the defrost condensate tray below the evaporator. A wet vacuum cleaner and poring a solution with clorox in the drain will help you clean locate the leak and where the blockage may be downline.. I do have the manual on yours and can help you solve this. Some times this is a factory defect and I can help you solve the freezing drain problem. Let me know, Sea Breeze

SOURCE: water on the top shelf of the refrigerator

Your defrost drain is clogged and now the defrost drain trough has filled with ice causing the water from your defrost cycles to flow into the fresh food section. You will need to clear all ice form thr drain area and this is done thru the freezer wall and some models also have a removable bottom panel in the freezer that has to come out also to get to the drain. You can do this it will just take a little time. About an hour for a first timer with little experience. Good luck and hope this helps

I have a whirlpool imperial refrigerator; freezer on top; with icemaker....water is leaking from the freezer section down onto top shelf in refrigerator, near back, any help??


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
Actually the leaking water is from the evaporator coil unit.... Under normal conditions,Self-defrost refrigerators usually dispose the water generated during the defrost cycle through a tube or channel that directs the water a pan (Known as Drip pan), commonly below the refrigerator unit....
The channel or tube is clogged and the water is leaking to the refrigerator unit, so you need to clear that contamination....Once the blockage is removed, the generated water will move through that channel/tube directly to the drip pan and there will no water on the top shelf in the refrigerator compartment. This is all you need to do....


Best of Luck,


Please do Rate the solution, if you feel that this helps you,
