While clearing out the drain, you may have accidentally punctured the evaporator coil. You may be dealing with a sealed system problem, loss of freon.

    No I did not the refridgerator works fine with the exception of the water leak down to the fridge

  • Dwayne Hoo-Fong Feb 27, 2011

    Ok, so its not blowing warm air. If its just the water leaking, then you may have something stucked in the drain line. If the line was clear, then the water would flow right down.

I have a maytag fridge (freezer on bottom) the fridge is not very cold. freezer has started to get ice near the door opening in the last week.


if you see ice near the door the door muat not be closing all the way or the gasket could be ripped,ice will form where warm and cold air are mixing together,did you remove any of the shelves or baskets in the freezer or in the fridge?i've seen people clean out the fridge and the shelves weren't put back in correctly keeping the door open,check that or food packages that might be hitting the door,when the warm air gets in it usually freezes the air ducts,this is why the fridge is warm,all that happens is the evaporator coil in the freezer gets cold,the evap fan blows the cold air from the freezer into the fridge section and then it returns through other air ducts so if warm air is getting in it will freeze up the air ducts,you can try shutting down the machine or unplug it,remove the food from the freezer and with a hair dryer hit the back inside wall of the freezer,blow the air up into the vent holes in the back wall,if you see water dripping down through the slots you have ice up in there,keep blowing the hot air up into the holes until you don't see any more water dripping,if you can remove the ice maker and remove the back inside wall of the freezer would be better.first check the freezer back wall to see if there's any frost or like snow on it,if so you could have a defrost problem,bad jazz board,this is the computer board that's behind your digital controls in the fridge section,bad defrost thermostat or heater,also do you mean the floor of the freezer has ice on it,you could have a blocked drain in the freezer.write back with more info and let me know what you find and hopefully i can help you better.

When my frostless refrigetor- freezer defrosts the water runs into the refrigerator box and the shelves are always full of water.. Whats the problem?


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

This picture shows where the defrost drain is,it may not look exactly like your model but it will be very similar

Top of refrigerator is warm and bottom freezes everything it is a side by side refrigerator and the top two shelves of the freezer(along with the icemaker) thaw and melt but the bottom freezes and the top...


poss answer is drain hole/vent blocked,as unit auto defrosts water/vapour collects at bottom and when unit swiches back on it freezes,poke out drain with thin wire with a small piece of cloth dipped in clorine bleach or blow out with air hose.do not use hot water to manually defrost/ clean drain holes every 6 months

Our Haier refrigerator is leaking water below the freezer. It is coming from only one side. How to fix?


Hi,
The reason for your fridge to leak water on floor sounds like your defrost drain is frozen over. When the refrigerator is going into defrost it's draining through the front instead of the drain pan. You can remove the shelves and peel off the back cover and clear the drain by pouring hot water on the frozen drain hole. If you have a boaster of some sort you could try to squirt the hot water through the venting on the bottom of the panel. Another way to point a hair dryer on the drain hole. The best method is to remove the shelves and panel and make sure the drain is clear.

if there is water on the top shelves in the fresh food section you may have a drain problem when the freezer defrosts. one other possibility is there is a air leak somewhere could be a bad door seal. when warm air enters it will cause condensation and water will drip on the shelves.I suspect it might be comming from the freezer though. a easy way to check is to remove the back panel in the freezer and check for ice in the drain pan. if there is a blockage use a hair drier to melt the ice and hot water to clear the drain. let me know if this helped you solve your problem Good luck
