SOURCE: so water leaks out onto floor-Jennair side by side

THERE IS A DRAIN LINE HEATER ON MOST UNITS now days, if yours is an older one what you need to do is make sure that it's level, and that the drain line is cleared so that the water has a place to go when it thaws during the defrost cycle.

There is a drain hole in the back of the freezer on the bottom. Get back there with some hot water. Most of the time it is just lime build up. Unless you know what feel back there. Another way is to move the freezer out and from the back side you can see the drain line. It just pulls right off

Maybe your machine has a leaky door, letting moist air inside. Make sure your compressor area is lint free. The heat from the compressor is supposed to evaporate that water. Make sure the pan is exactly in the right place, level, not cracked.

SOURCE: A small amount of water is leaking out of the

older fridges drained water into a pan with the compressor in it, thus cooling the compressor and evaporating the water, this is located at the bottom back of the fridge. if this fridge has a water and/or ice dispensor, the water could be leaking from many a place.

one of the plastic wtaer lines could be cracked,when the ice maker fills the water line could be cracked and leak out when it's filling.also it looks like you have a water dispenser in your machine,go in the back with the bottom panel removed and have someone fill a cup of water and check the lines while it's filling.where does it look like the water is leaking from?is there ice in the bottom of the freezer floor?the drain could be blocked.when the machine goes into defrost if the drain is blocked the water will leak out onto the floor of the freezer and then out onto the floor,if that's ok i'd have to say it will be one of the plastic lines,it gets hot in there,have you been cleaning the condenser coil?that should be vaced out at least once a year,this is how the heat escapes from the machineif the coil is clogged with lint and dust it will run hotter than normal and this also makes the plastic lines brittle.hope this helps and change the water filter every 6 months.

The Whirlpool side-by-side refrigerator, model ED2KVEXVQ01 occassionally leaks water onto the floor. There could be a cup or more of water, but the problem has occurred a few times, but may go weeks or...


sometimes we overload our refrigerators and the doors will not close properly, next time you notice the water see if your doors are closed tightly and the seals engaged tightly. My wife has this habit of not checking after she has put away the remains of a big dinner or BBQ and I find drips of condensate water all over the floor as a result. The defrost collection pan overfills and the excess water goes on the floor. once the doors are closed properly the problem goes away.

Water accumulated under crisoer drawers and leaking onto floor.


That water is coming from your freezer during the defrost cycle. Normally there is a drain in your freezer that goes to a cup in your refrigerator and through the back of your refrigerator through a drain tube which extends down to a drip pan. If this tube gets plugged up, water will overflow in the cup and leak at the back wall of your refrigerator and through the holes that lead to the crisper's floor area. If you can remove the cup and using a wire dislodge anything blocking the drain, clean the cup of any debris and check your freezer drain for any obstruction causing water backing up and leaking !

Hello, sounds to me like you either have a leak on the nut on the water inlet valve or a pinhole leak on the inlet valve body...have come across this many times before...you may not see the leak from the valve because it is very fine spray but it's there...only real way to detect where it is coming from is to pull the valve out switch water on and see where the leak is....either this or you have a blocked drain tube in the refridge but with the info you supplied i would suggest the valve. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Good Luck! Mike

Water gushed out freezer door, possible solenoid problem?


The drain is clogged. The drain is usually located inside the freezer on the bottom shelf to the rear. Use a meat baster and a solution of 1 tsp. baking soda and 2 cups of hot water-not boiling to unclog the drain. You probably also have about 1/2 inch of ice build-up on the bottom shelf. This will have to be removed first.
