Water leaking from bottom front, ice in bottom of freezer


Your drain line form the evaporator is clogged. Locate the drain under the back and use a wet/dry vacuum to unclogged drain. The drain line can be also blocked by excessive ice buildup from incomplete defrosting. Remove frozen foods and open door to freezer section and remove power and manually defrost unit. Once ice is stopped melting try vacuuming the drain line again. Sometime drain line gets clogged with debris such as garden peas, corn, wrapping and the like. Once drain line is cleared the water and ice on the freezer bottom should stop forming.
Hope this helps

No water from dispenser Matag New filter solenoid valve working, tube to dispenser seems to be blocked


Hello Hans;


My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

There could be several areas that would effect your water dispenser not working:

1.) When you depress the water dispenser do you hear a 'Click'? If not you have a bad water dispenser contact switch.
I would send you a diagram but I do not have your model number.

2.) In the lower back of your fresh food section is your water dispenser water tank. At times this can freeze near the freezer section. Look in the lower corner of the freezer & your fresh food section for ice build-up.

3.) You could have a bad water filter. This does happen often. Remove the water filter and test you water dispenser.

4.) Do you have water leaking out of the bottom of your dispenser door? If so you have a split in the tubing in your water dispenser door.

5.) Is your ice maker working? Often the water valve to your refrigerator becomes plugged up and you do not get sufficient water pressure 60 PSI to operate your water dispenser solenoid valve.

Why is my Viking refrigerator/bottom freezer leaking water out bottom of door? There is a layer of ice on bottom of freezer.


The ice on the bottom of the freezer is blocking a drain hole. When the freezer defrosts automatically, water drains out the bottom into a tray, where it evaporates away and you never see it under most conditions.

The solution is to either defrost the freezer manually and let the ice melt, or pour some hot water into the bottom of the freezer to thaw out the ice and clear the blockage.

If the drain is plugged because of some foreign matter, either method will make a mess, so have some towels at the ready to sop everything up if need be. If it is blocked, a can of Air Duster (like for cleaning electronics) might be able to blow the blockage out, if you seal the nozzle tube up as it is stuck into the drain.

Most likely it is just ice blockage.

You can access the drain tray (where the water goes to evaporate) by removing the grille on the front bottom of the fridge and peeking / poking around. You might want to keep an eye on it as you defrost the freezer or pour hot water in the bottom - it can over-fill quickly.

Water on floor - french door refrigerator with freezer below


Yes the bottom compartment does have a drain opening but to see it you will need to remove the rear panel covering the evaporator inside the back wall of the freezer compartment. See item location number 11 on page 3 of the parts list. That will need to be removed so you can reach the drain inside the freezer compartment. The fresh food section also has a drain.

Maytag side by side refrigerator ice forms at the bottom of freez


Your drain is probably plugged. Remove the back panel in the freezer and keep squirting hot water down the drain hole with a turkey baster or something similar until it clears. The drain hole is located at the bottom of the coils in the freezer section. Your refrigerator goes into defrost every 8 to 10 hrs. When this happens, it melts the ice on the coils, which in turn, runs out the hole where the drain is. If something like algae is blocking or plugging the hole, it will plug up causing water to freeze over the hole. The water has nowhere to go but out the door.

Leak


It leaks Water can leak from these areas:

The bottom front of the refrigerator or freezer door
The back of the refrigerator
The inside ceiling of the refrigerator
The inside back wall of the refrigerator
Underneath the front of the refrigerator
The bottom front of the refrigerator or freezer door Self-defrosting refrigerators usually dispose of the water generated during the defrost cycle via a tube or channel that directs the water to a pan at the bottom of the refrigerator. From the pan, the water normally evaporates. (See a more detailed explanation of this in the How Things Work section of our website).

If the tube or channel is clogged or obstructed, the water backs up and leaks into the inside of the refrigerator compartment. Then the water builds up at the bottom, inside of the refrigerator. When the water has built up for a time it may spill out of the front of the door opening. To fix this problem, clear the drain tube or channel and allow the defrost water to flow down to the drain pan. 

In some refrigerators, the defrost water is intentionally directed down the back wall of the refrigerator, where it then flows to the bottom of the refrigerator compartment and out to a small drain--usually located beneath one of the drawers at the bottom of the refrigerator. If the drain becomes clogged or blocked, the water may back up. To fix this problem, clear the obstruction. 

Another cause may be the following. The refrigerator may have doorframe heaters to evaporate any condensation on the cabinet frame. If your refrigerator is equipped with a switch inside that says “energy saver” or something similar, while running in that mode the door heaters are disabled. Turn the switch to the opposite setting and wait 24 hours. If the condensation disappears the problem is solved.

The back of the refrigerator Water coming from the back of the refrigerator usually comes from either the ice maker water valve or line (if there is an ice maker), or from the defrost drain pan. 

Here's what to do:

  • If the water is coming from the ice maker water valve, check to make sure the water tubes are attached properly and are fastened tightly.


  • If the water seems to be coming from any part of the valve itself, replace the valve.


  • If the water appears to be coming from the defrost drain pan, inspect for holes or cracks, and replace the pan if necessary.


The inside ceiling of the refrigerator Water accumulating on the ceiling of the refrigerator is usually caused by a clogged drain in the freezer section beneath the evaporator. The clogged drain will cause water from the self defrost cycle to leak into the divider between the freezer and refrigerator. This water may then freeze and cause condensation build-up on the refrigerator ceiling. The solution to this problem begins with unclogging the drain. It may also be necessary to remove the entire freezer/refrigerator divider to thoroughly dry the insulation in the divider. Occasionally the insulation needs to be replaced to prevent a recurrence of the problem. This can be a big job – you may want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician.

The inside back wall of the refrigerator In some refrigerators, the water from the defrost cycle is intentionally directed down the back wall of the refrigerator, where it then flows to the bottom of the refrigerator compartment and out to a small drain - usually located beneath one of the drawers at the bottom of the refrigerator. If the drain becomes clogged or blocked, the water may back up. To fix this problem, clear the obstruction. 

Underneath the front of the refrigerator If the refrigerator is equipped with a water dispenser on the freezer door, check if the water line to the dispenser is leaking. Also, check the drip pan to be sure it isn’t out of place, broken or cracked.
