My fridge has water pooling on the top shelf

Water keeps pooling on the top shelf... up to a cup a day. It seems to be coming from rectangular openings in the ceiling of the fridge compartment.

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.

Testimonial: "This gave us an idea of what to do. The drain tube was blocked with some plastic lumps that must have come from the factory in our 3 month old fridge."

Just did the same thing to my parents fridge, I found the penetration through the backwall of the fridge where the pipes come
Through had a big ice berg growing from it and the drain was completely frozen over, I sealed the peno with silicon and unblocked the drain. It's behind the big plastic panel in the fridge, 3 screws and a few side clips you have to squeeze in. The fan was frozen-in in my case so I had to melt it to free the cover panel
Hope this helps

There is water in the refridgerator


You have a disconnected defrost drain pan. You will need inspect the ceiling of your refrigerator compartment and find the drain hose going from your freezer to your fridge then the drain pan. Sometimes this is molded into the plastic at the back of your fridge and it simply leaking out the joint. Start by defrosting your freezer, then pour water in the freezer itself while checking the ceiling of the fridge for water traces. Keep a wet/dry shop vac handy or a mop to keep up with the excess drainage. Then reattach the hose to the little drain nozzle when you find it.

Water is leaking onto top shelf of fridge. It is a top freezer.


Sounds like you have a frozen drain in the freezer. You can remove the back panel of the freezer and take a turkey baster and run hot water down the drain line to clear it. Once its cleared you will want to dump an additional cup of water down to make sure that its clear. This will stop the defrost tray from overflowing when the unit goes into defrost. This is where the water is coming from.

I have a ten year old Whirlpool top freezer refrigerator that was recently repaired for non cooling. I believe my landlord replaced the thermostat but somehow was unable to properly reinstall the drainage...


Good day,
There is a drain cup in the rear top center of the fridge compartment that drains the water to the outside of the machine, down a drain pipe into the drain pan.
Hard to see the cup unless you use a hand mirror.
Dirt, can plug this cup and as well the hose and fittings in the back of the machine.
Removing this cup requires removing the front cover, and between cleaning it, the connection between the inside and outside of the machine and the drain hose can be tedious.
Don't force the situation. Shut the machine down, until it is completely defrosted.

Water accumuluation under the fridge


at the back there should be a drip tray if this is full it will leak onto the floor it could be this, it could also be the drain in the fridge is blocked on the back there should be a self made into the back with a hole in it this is to go to the vapure, the part i was on about before, the tank is on top of the pump and its hot so turns the water in to vapour, usually there is not a lot of water but if the pipe becomes blocked it stores the water in the pipe and then lets it go in one full step over flowing the container. to clean the pipe out you can use a flex line or a net curtain rod, push it down and up the hole a few times the blockage will fool to the bottom or come out on the flex.

Kenmore fridgerator is leaking water in the bottom 2001


the drain tube above &be hind ceiling has drain cup on older fridge this gets stopped up with gunk and stuff. held on back wall by 2 screws. This is a top freezer Your describing other wise the drain tube is in the freezer and you'd have ice in the floor of the fridge. If your fridge doesn't have it in the top back of the fridge compartment it is entirely in the upper freezer compartment and is still stopped up probably w ice and gunk. Defrost w hair dryer and while you can see the drain pan and hole pour in a cup of water if it goes down your good other wise blow out the drain with compressed air and retry the water. Please rate me accordingly and good luck.
