What is causing water to leak both inside and under deli drawer

Periodically water is collecting in the back of the deli drawer...it seems to come into the drawer at the center back; upon taking the drawer out we discovered there was also water, actually more like a thin layer of ice forming under the deli drawer

STANDING WATER UNDER DELI TRAY


Try going further than defrost and draining the hose. There is gunk that builds up and you need to clean that out. Use a pipe cleaner(the fuzzy wires used mostly for art projects. They actually can clean pipes and water lines!!) Also, you can pick up a pack of pellets used for breaking down the "gunk" build up.

Water is leaking out from the fridge floor onto the ground.


The drain pan in the back evaporates from the heat of the compressor. The freezer drain drains into this pan. If there is water under the bins it sounds like the drain is partially clogged and over flowing into the refrig section. But I need more info, like model , brand.

I have a Woods refrigerator that is all fridge, no freezer compartment. Model # RFA17NAC. s/n 07605297JG. It is leaking water on the inside of the fridge and collects on the fridge floor. No manual came...


Hi Linda. We have the identical model of Woods all-fridge and
experienced this problem several times over the course of several
months. Hopefully this is still timely.





The short answer is that the clear flexible-plastic drain tube that runs
from the inside rear of the fridge down to the catch tray (underneath
the cabinet, next to the floor, behind the kick-plate) is sufficiently
plugged (with some kind of gunk, probably from a spill inside the
fridge) to cause a back-up. I suppose the inner diameter of the tube is
maybe 3/16" so it can easily get clogged. Consequently, the water runs
down the inside back of the fridge & eventually ends up in the
depressions below the crispers. In our case, after those depressions
filled (and I hadn\'t noticed), the water would run out onto the floor.





Initially, I used a fine wire to poke some of the gunk out of the tube
but I didn\'t get it all out. Just enuff to let some of the water get
thru, but the tube would plug up again. After a few repeats of the
problem, separated by a month or 2 each time, I decided a more "drastic"
tube cleaning was required.





I suppose a good strong compressed air blast might clear the tube
completely, but I didn\'t have that available so I had to use a
semi-flexible wire & sorta gunk out the tube. It\'s been about 1.5
yrs. since that more thorough tube cleaning & the problem hasn\'t
come back, so I think the tube got plugged from a spill in the fridge
(which thankfully hasn\'t re-occurred... yet).





BTW, I don\'t have the manual either, but the lower part of the tubing is
accessible from behind the fridge. I didn\'t pull it completely out
(which might have disconnected it from its fitting), I simply reamed it
out while it was in-place.





Hope this has been of some help to you.


Norm.

Icing up


I've just had a similar problem. I fixed it by removing the large panel on the back of the inside of the freezer. I found a large build up of ice at the bottom of the freezer which seems to have developed because the drain hole at the bottom of the freezer was blocked. I defrosted the ice, cleared the drain and now the freezer is working fine.

Ice collecting under bottom of Freezer drawer/ seal round door intact/ food staying frozen/ Ice is cleared periodically but then builds up again


Your defrost drain hole is clogged. Look for the drain hole in the bottom rear of the freezer section. Turn off the fridge. Heat the drain hole with a hair dryer and clear the ice. Pour a quarter cup of bleach into the hole.

Water pours down the back(Internally) ofmy Liebherr Frost Free Fridge freezer.


It is most likely a broken water tank in back wall of refrigerator section remove the crisper drawers you will see the tank it holds about 1.5 gal of water to keep it chilled for the dispenser. check all around it with the water on and someone getting water out of the dispenser at the same time check the seams closely. you should find the leak there let me know if not we may have to look into the water inlet valve
