The evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.
Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the inside of the freezer at the bottom of the rear cover.

I have a refrigerator 199x (early) Medaillon 850 that works really well however it started to leak from under. The pan is empty so I know it is not from there. I thnk it comes from the back of the frige however not certain. it does not leak alot for the moment. What do you think the problem is? How much it would cost especially the part? Thank you

Leaking Fridge Hi, Thanks so much for your feedback. We did as you said and there wasn't any ice on the pipework but at the back of the freezer build up. We defrosted the freezer and ran hot water through and everything looked promising, however 7 days later there is ice build up at the back of the freezer and it is making a strange noise. There is no leaking of water at this stage. Any more suggestions. Thanks.
Check to see that your evaporator motor works otherwise ice will build up and the defrost time will not be enough to melt all the ice..... ...
Inside the freezer of my General Eletric GSH25JSTA SS, I seem to have a small trickle of water running down the back of the freezer. This trickle of water freezes at the bottom of the freezer. The water seems to melt and leak onto the floor. It's not a huge leak, but it'll get a towel somewhat wet/damp. I turned the freezer off overnight and wiped up the melted water. However, when I turned the freezer back on, the trickle of water started again and froze on the bottom. Any help would be g

Ice maker model uki1500axx. Maytag refrig freezer on top. Problem is the plastic supply line that runs up the back and slips into the piece that goes into the freezer keeps leaking and coming out. There is a metal clamp on it. I loosened the clamp, re-inserted the tube then re-crimped the clamp. It continues to leak and come loose. Sounds like it should be very simple but it is driving me crazy. Thanks in advance.
