Your defrost drain system is plugged, you will need to locate it and clean it out.Follow the water trail back to where it is coming from. Hope this helps.

Water pooling on top shelf in refrigerator with top freezer


Hi,

Your drain is obstructed within the freezer compartment causing the water to floe into to lower section via vent ducts. To correct this, you will need to access the rear wall of the freezer and at the bottom you will find the drain hole. Remove the obstruction with warm water and remove all the ice also.

Good Luck

What causes water to pool on the top shelf?


Hello

It is caused by a clogged defrost drain in the freezer compartment of your refrigerator

To fix this you will need to empty your refrigerator and unplug it.

Remove the back panel of the freezer and look under the cooling coil, you will see a frozen drain

pour hot water on the drain hole until water flows freely through the drain to the bottom pan..

That's it

When it defrosts the water comes into the refrigerator on the top shelf


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

I hope this helps

I have water comming out of the freezer at times and a pool below the bottom shelf.


You drain has frozen up probably because of a clog. Take the bottom door out and right at the rear bottom of the freezer back in the middle you sill see a drain. When the freezer goes in deefrost the frost will melt on the evaporaterr lines and must go down under the freezer yours does not and when the freezer comes on that water freezes. next time it defrost it heats that ice and the melted water come out the front of he door. clean that drain.

The water is overflowing from the freezer onto refrig shelf


Yes, let the unit thaw out, and replace that thin wire. it's called a drain heater, it simply keeps the water from freezing before it gets out the drain.

Water inside refrigerator


Even though it doesn't seem like it's coming from your freezer, morre than likely that's where it's coming from. At the back of the fridge there will be a drip tray that actually catches the water from the thawing freeze. One way to avoid access water is to simply turn down your freezer and fridge. Usually if they are number 0-10, both frigde and freezer should be set on the 5 level.

My fridge has water pooling on the top shelf


Hello, this sounds like you have a blockage in the drain tube, remove panel back of freezer..you may see ice build up...melt ice with hair dryer/heat gun...you will see a pan below evaporator...melt ice in pan...dry water up in pan with paper towel...now you should see a hole in pan that leads to drain tube...pour some hot water in pan..wait a couple minutes..mop up water and repeat this step 2-3 times....once you have done this find some flexible curatain wire or electrical wire..poke down the hole until you see the water drain..now it is clear..put back panel back and you are good to go. The reason you see water in the Freezer is because the water has been leaking into the freezer instead of running into the drain hole...If you need any further assistance please feel free to comment again. good luck! P.s Please don't forget to rate my solution thanks! Mike.

Water dripping from freezer onto top shelf of fridge with ice buildup back of freezer


the defroster isn't close enough to the drain to be effective. remove the back wall of the inside of the freezer, remove the excess ice. clear out the ice from the drain using hot water and a turkey baster. there is a kit from whirlpool that uses a piece of metal and a screw around the defrost rod, but I found out that a piece of 14 gauge solid core wire with the insulation stripped off works great too. stick the stripped wire into the drain, 2 to 3 inches, and wrap the rest around the defrost rod.
