A small amount of water is leaking out of the front of the refrigerator onto the floor every day and I can not fine the source of the water. Is there a drain pan and if so where is it? If it is not the drain pan what else could it be. I keep it cleaned out underneath and clean the coils. The water seems to be coming from above the grill dripping onto the floor.

The drain in my freezer appears plugged. When i pour water in it, none comes out the bottom into the pan. Ice has been building up in the freezer for sometime and water leaks onto my floor. Tonight I removed the rear access panel, the drain pan was FULL of water. I sponged it out, then I tipped the fridge sideways and removed the bottom panel. I vacuumed the condenser grille. Then I tested the drain by pouring water into the freezer drain hole but the level isn't going down. I tried pushing a co

In the freezer there is a " grill" in the back wall and I can see a heating element. Water is seeping thru the grill into the bottom of the freezer and is collecting and freezing. Some water also makes it out onto the floor. Is there maybe a drain under the element that leads to the drain pan that might be plugged? If so, how do you get to it? Thank you, Ken
Yes there is. \015\012Remove the back panel in your freezer and at the bottom of the evaporator coil you will see a hole about \302\275" in diameter this is the drain tube. Try using a turkey baster to flush out the drain tube. You might ...

I have a Kenmore refrigerator that perodically will just let a puddle of water out on the floor underneath it. The drain pan underneath is dry so I know that it's not overflowing. I had a service person look at it who couldn't find anything wrong. I'm thinking it's probably in the defrost cycle but what is causing the water to totally miss the drain pan underneath?
There should be a hose underneath the fridge that needs to be put back into pan. ...

Water leakage from underneath front of fridge and/or freezer. Ice build up on floor on freezer. Drain pan overflowing? Drain hole appears iced also. Can poke wire down 8" but water isn't draining completely. How do I get to the drain tube to clear it and determine why it is not melting and evaporating?
The drain hose is probably clogged with a pea or some kind of food etc. Try pouring boiling water down the hose, or a hair dryer if that doesn't work, or let it warm up until you can pour water down and it comes out into the pan at the bottom. Make ...

A horrible smell from underneath 60721. The drain doesn't seem to be clogged. We think turkey drippings spilled and attempting to cleaning the drain and drain pan, but it's difficult. Is there a secret to getting to the drain pan? Also, what is the best solution for odor....warm water and bleach? .
The drain pan may be accessible from the back. An equal portion of bleach and water should kill the smell. Make you wear gloves and use a fan to ventilate the area before and after using the bleach solution. ...

Dear,\015\012 Any one who charges that much for a "freon" leak in a 632 and does not replace the evaporator is a complete charlatan. Your "freon" will leak out again and more problems will occur.\015\012\015\012\0 ...

The freezer compartment was icing up and water was draining onto the floor. I turned the freezer control to the lowest value.Then, after unscrewing the box at the back of the frig I cleaned the exhast line in the back of the unit which was plugged up. During this time I did not turn off the power or shut off the water line. After cleaning the "gunk" from the exhaust line, I replaced the cover, and turned up the freezer control. The freezer

Our Sub-Zero(model 650) refer has a a whiteish corrugated tube that comes down the back of the refrig. and hangs above the middle of the drain pan in the back. Every two weeks we have to remove the overflow of water that collects and freezes behind the crispers, and eventually ends up leaking onto my hardwood floor. We blow air down into the tube and a lot of brown gunk is deposited into the drip pan. How can we fix this?
Once you blow air through the tube does it stay clear for a while or does it quickly start leaking again? ...

FRIGIDAIRE FRS22ZRGD2 WATER COLLECTS AND FREEZES ON THE BOTTOM OF THE FREEZER SIDE OF THE REFRIGERATOR. ONCE FROZEN OVER, WATER LEAKS OUT OF THE FREEZER BOTTOM ONTO THE FLOOR.
I HAVE CLEANED OUT THE DRAIN TUBE LEADING FROM THE EVAPORATOR COILS.
You may need to clean the drain tube again. the only other place that water may come from is the ice maker if it is over flowing. this however would be very obvious. use some thing like a length of cloths line cable to "snake" the drain after you def ...
Frigidaire FRS26R4C Side by Side Refrigerator
I have a model ET19RKXFW01. The water drain pan freezes in the freezer section and water drains down into the refrigerator section. I have taken out the bottom pan and defrosted the drain pan area in the back so the water drains down to the floor level through the tube to the collector pan. I then have put the freezer back together and the same problem occurs within 2 weeks.
Sound like clogged drain line(s) ...
Ice covers the drain hole on the freezer side of my whirlpool Gold model GC5SHEXN003 and water appears on the floor surrounding the refrigerator.
I have cleared the ice covering the drain hole with hot water ....

Two or 3 weeks later the same routine has to be done because water is on the floor surrounding the refrigerator. This routine

While cleaning Maytag MBF2556HE Bottom Freezer Refrigerator coils, I noticed green gunk along with the water in the drain pan. It was suggested that I add bleach to the drain pan and to "let it evaporate as normal." My drain pan has water in addition to the green gunk. I added 1 TBS to the pan. Should all of the liquid in the drain evaporate? Then do I vacuum out the green gunk?
