Tfx25ppbb. Water leaks into bottom of freezer when refilling ice tray in automatic ice maker. Ice still gets made but water leaks to the bottom of freezer. When enough freezes, it leaks out the door


It's probably not the ice-maker. It has a plugged drain. This is located in the back wall of the freezer near the bottom. remove the evaporator cover...(the back wall of the freezer). Below the coils is a trough with a hole in it where the defrost water drains. This is probably frozen over.
Pour some hot water in to trough until you see drain hole. Keep pouring until water runs thru drain. May have to shut down ref to get it to defrost.

Why is water leaking out evey day???


Is the water leaking from the refrigerator compartment or the freezer compartment? Can we assume the "leaking" water is more than some accumulated humidity/moisture (check your door gaskets)? Have you checked all water lines/fittings for the water dispenser/ ice cube maker (if you have one)?

If it is is the freezer section, the problem may be a clogged drain line (is there ice blocking the trough drain hole?) at the bottom of the freezer (evaporator) coils? You may need to defrost the freezer, check for any faulty parts (e.g., defrost time/ADC, defrost thermo, defrost heater), and clean the drain trough/tube. See Refrigerator Defrost Parts for illustrations.

Hotpoint csx22d side by side has leak under freezer side @ door...coming from wiring harness that runs up into bottom of freezer maybe??????


This leak , is coming from the defrost drain , inside the freezer section , at the back . The defrost drain is clogged with ice . Remove the bottom freezer crisper , and use a hairdryer to defrost the ice . You will see a drain hole where the defrost water is supposed to drain thru . Hot water helps defrost this hole . Once defrosted , use a small hose inserted into the drain hole , to blow thru , to remove built up debris , inside the unseen drain line .

Water setteling on bottom of freezer side and freezing also leaking. 2 fridges both doing the same thing . leaking on the inside and freezing and underneath water is leaking.


Clean out the defrost drain. There is a drain in the freezer that lets all the defrost water run under the fridge. If that gets clogged then all the water runs into the freezer and can even leak onto the floor

Kenmore Refridgerator leaking water into refridgerator compartment from freezer compartment


You most likely have a clogged drain. When you freezers goes into defrost every 8 to 10 hours. The frost that is melted during the defrost drains from the freezer either down through the fridge or out the back and down. Either way it drains into a pan under the fridge. This tube is either clogged or the drain it's self inside the freezer is. Most of the time I find peas stopping the water from draining from the freezer. When the water can't drain it leaks through the bottom of the freezer into the fresh food section of the fridge. You will need to fix this because it will cause other problems. The water that cant drain from the freezer refreezes and will end up destroying the foam in the bottom of the freezer. Water will also leak onto the controls located in the part between the freezer and fresh food section ruining you controls.

GE TFX20JR side by side/water leaks out freezer during defrost


Yes, you are correct, that is a drain. Use a turkey baster with hot (not boiling) water to flush out the drain tube until water will flow out into the drain pan under the refrig. (where the air blown over it will cause it to evaporate)

Our Whirlpool top freezer unit is leaking water into the refrigerator. The model number is ET21NKXGW01 and at the top of the inside of the fridge, water is draining out into the fridge. The defrosting...


We were able to fix the freezer water leak. We unscrewed the false freezer floor and the inside back panel. Ice had accumulated on the freezer floor and the defrosting drain was frozen. We removed the ice by using a blow dryer then poured boiling hot water onto the frozen drain hole. The frozen water in the drain pipe hole eventually melted and the water released into the defrosting drip pan at the bottom of the refrigerator. Problem solved. We no longer have water leaking into the refrigerator.

Leaking water


Mine just starting leaking also. Water gathers in bottom, then freezessolid. then additional water leaks out. I've check ice maker and door water line. confirmed by turning off water supply. Water continues to build in bottom. I think it might be the defroster. somehow the defrosting water is not draining? Check your out and let me know what you find.
