I have a top freezer/bottom refrigerator-6months old-no icemaker hooked up. There is water dripping continuously into the refrigerator compartment-some of it freezes and the rest accumulates in the...


Hello,

That water is from the melting frost of the automatic defrost cycle. Their is drain in the freezer behind the back wall under the evaperator coil that is blocked, so instead of defrost water draining it's pooling in the freezer or in some case espically on models with the freezer on the top,the water is leaking from the freezer vents into the fresh food compartment.
The way to clear the drain is remove back plate and remove all ice build up and GENTLY make a small hole in drain through then totally flush w/warm water.
The exact location of drain is under the coil behind back freezer plate in the center

Good luck

I hope this helps

Pooling of water in fridge compartment of my Neff fridge/freezer


The defrost drain is clogged. Defrost drains usually get there clog right behind the back freezer panel. Remove this to get to the defrost drain and remove all built up ice and clear the drain and you should be fine. Hope this helps.

Water dripping in to freezer bottom ten pools on


Sounds like you have a drain that is plugged. When it goes into defrost the water hass no place to run. Thats when you get water like that. I would defrost it completly. Then try to get to the drain and pour hot water slowly to see if it goes all the way down to the pan. If not. Yu may have to have air pressure to go thru the drain.

These doors are not water cooled. Is there water in the drip pan? Likely not and the drain is froze over with ice. you will have to remove the rear panel inside the freezer and clean the drain. There is most likely ice under the freezer floor that needs removed also. Take your time and do not damage the styrofoam separator and air channels.

There is water dripping down the inside back of the freezer side


Had this happen twice. My problem was the drain line that goes to the pan underneath was plugged. Had to pull it apart to get to the drain and unplug it.
