Freezer has a drain in the back under the cooling coil. Melt Ice from drain area with a hair dryer, check drain and clear, under bottom in back behind a removable panel you will find the drain exit from the freezer going into the drain pan. This drain line has a loop for air seal, make sure it is cleared.

There is one button in the freeze. By pressing this button you can de- freeze it. Water will collect in a container which is at the back of freeze.For more details check out http://mistercold.com/koolit-golf-cooler.html

My bottom mounted freezer continues to freeze up and leaks a small puddle on the floor


You have a drain hole behind the rear wall of the freezer compartment. You will need to remove the shelves, screws and clean the hole of ice and gunk. here is a video below.

The problem with your refrigertor is that the defrost drain is plugged up. After you get the ice buildup out of the freezer section you will have to locate the drain system. It is in the back of the freezer at the very bottom.It needs to be cleaned out. Hope this at least leads you in the right direction.

If you shut off the water to the ice maker, the only other cause is a plugged drain hole. Somewhere around the bottom of your freezer there will be a small hole that allows moisture to drain out of the freezer and into a catch pan under the refrigerator. If this hole is plugged with ice then the water has no where to drain but out the door of the freezer and puddling on your floor. The water you see dripping is condensation that has built up in the freezer itself.

To fix this problem, you need to dislodge/remove the ice from the bottom of the freezer and the hole. I have had the best luck using warm water with a turkey baster. Another alternative would be an ice pick or any type of utensil that can be safely used to dislodge the ice from the whole and the bottom of the freezer. I prefer the water method because it is the safest. Ideally what you want to do is force warm water in small quantites down the hole. This will melt the ice and reopen the drainage. You then need to remove any ice around the bottom of the freezer using warm water. When done make sure to dry the bottom of the freezer.

Sounds like the defrost drain is cloged. There is a hole at the bottom of the freezer behind the back wall. if this is cloged then the water that is suppost to drain there will overflow and freez.

Ice Buildup in Bottom of Freezer


Hi: The tube in the back of the freezer is not clogged with ice. It is most likely clogged with mold below the freezer section just above the warm tray where the defrost water evaporates. Also a pea or other piece of debris could have gotten in there. Do your thawing again and pour some clorox water through it and use a pipe cleaner if it's a tough clog. I hope this helps, Jeff

Freezer icing over at bottom and leaking onto floor


Hi, You will need to remove the rear panel in the freezer and then remove the ice build up in the drain pan. The drain hole will have ice down in it.Make sure all the ice is gone and then flush the drain hole out with hot water (a basting serenge works great)
This should take care of your water problem.
If I can assist you further, please let me know and please rate me response so that other as well as my self will know how I am doing.

Thanks

Water puddling in bottom of freezer and freezing


the drain in the back of the freezer is probably full of ice. you need to pull out panel and use heat from a blow dryer to unplug the drain. then take a small gauge copper wire long enough to extend into the drain a couple of inches and loop it around the black heating element then when it goes yhrough defrost it should keep this from reaccuring
