SOURCE: Whirlpool Refrigerator(side by side) leaking water

First question would be is your ice machine leaking? If so then disable the ice machine until we can find the cause of leaks and repair them. Is the freezer freezing well? Food compartment temps OK?. Let me know and I will work to help you resolve this. Sea Breeze sea breezehvac@yahoo.com

SOURCE: water collects in bottom of refrigerator

HI, First thing you do is remove the floor panel of the freezer. Do you see ice?
If there is ice, remove the rear wall of the freezer as well and start removing the ice. There will be down inside the drain hole also. A hair dryer works great for this project.
Please do not use sharp object/tools.
Now that you have the ice out of the drain, There is an after market drain transfer heat strip kit you need to buy and add.
Please let me know if I can help you. I have the kit on my web site www.whirlpoolpartssurplus.com

Thanks
Vic

yoor problem is with the drain, when your refrig goes into self defrost the water melted from the defrost needs some where to go. There is a drain for this purpose....it is normally a tube that leads from the rear of freezer to pan by compressor. when this gets blocked the water has nowhere to go except into the freezer vent and down the bottom of the refridge compartment. you will need to clear the blockage in the drain tube...if you are still haveing a problem i can tell you how.

SOURCE: Refrigerator has water dripping inside the unit down the back

The problem is the drain is clogged. Remove the back panel in your freezer and at the bottom of the evaporator coil you will see a hole about ½” in diameter this is the drain tube. You might need to use some warm water to melt the ice and then run a wire being very careful not to puncture the hose and run it down the tube to free up the drain. This tube travel down to the bottom of your refrigerator to a pan sometimes located on top of the compressor or somewhere else down there. It collects the water there to evaporate. You can enter your model # at www.appliancehelponline.com for a diagram or illustration of your refrigerator. Not all models are available.

SOURCE: I have Whirlpool refrigerator without

The most common problem is the defrost drain hole is plugged or frozen over.And the defrosted water from the evap coil is leaking in the fridge compartment,You may have to remove the back panel in the freezer compartment and defrost the evap coil and drain area.

Water in bottom of refrigerator


there should be a tray that guides water from freezer to a drain located in the fridge section normally held with one screw . take it off and unclog drain ( use a vacuum to **** out sludge) clean tray/guide and mount back on. make sure all moisture is cleaned out after drain is cleared.

Refrigerator crisper drawers are freezing veggies


Shut the air flow into the crispers if you can. If not, turn the refrigerator temperature warmer by just a few degrees. The air into the fridge from the freezer is channeled into the crispers.

Water under veggie bin in fridg. model frigidaire F44Q21RJ,


possibility's:


1 There is a drain that carries away the water under the cooling coils. These coils are in the freezer section.

2 The damper going to the crisper( s) is open too far allowing cold air to cause condensate on the fridge wall or bottom.

3 The freezer section is not defrosting and there is a spot where the ice buildup is allowing conductive cooling into the refrigerator section and therefore is allowing condensation on the refrigerator wall or ceiling.

4 The refg section has a heater (possibly not positive) in the area of the door frame, or it may have a "power saver" switch. This switch and the heater (if it has a heater it may not have a switch) are designed to stop condensation on the refridg while running. I fit is placed in the "power save" mode it turns off the heater. But, if you live in extream humidity (Great lakes east side or Gulf coats Houstion...) the humid air will condensate water out and it will collect and settle on the floor.

5 Door gaskets are not sealing especially on the bottom of the door. This allows warmer air into the fridge section and it is condensation on floor under the crisper.

If you check all of these items and still cant find it please post back and tell me what you did find. So I can help you more. Please rate me as much as possible as Im trying to keep my average up and do the things that will actually educate and help people.

THANK you for using fixya and good luck..
