Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

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


Answers :

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 need to use some warm water to melt the ice and then run a wire being very careful not to puncture the hose and run it down the tube to free up the drain. This tube travel down to the bottom of your refrigerator to a pan sometimes located on top of the compressor or somewhere else down there. It collects the water there to evaporate. After cleaning mix a 50 -50 solution of baking soda and water and run some down the drain tube this should help prevent future clogs. This link should help with acessing the drain.

My maytag side by side model mzd2752gr is leaking water on the floor from the freezer. This model does not have a drain pan.

One week ago, I replaced the defrost timer and defrost thermostat/heating element due to the freezer freezing up and the refrigerator not cooling. This water leaking pr

Water is pooling in the bottom of the freezer compartment. It then freezes. Over time it builds up enough ice on the freezer floor such that the freezer door won't close. Then the ice melts and runs onto the floor. I can't figure out where the water is coming from that is collecting on the freezer floor. Home Depot's online Repair Guru suggested that I have a clogged defrost drain. I don't doubt that but I don't know how to get access to that drain so as to try to unclog it.

Water freezes in the drain of the freezer compartment thereby plugging up the drain......with water running onto the floor. I am now running an electric heater in the freezer box to melt the ice & plugged up drain.

I have a Whirlpool bottom freezer refrigerator...GB2FHDXWS04. Water is leaking from somewhere and forming a layer of ice on the floor of the freezer. I shut off the water supply to the ice maker in the freezer, but water is still leaking from somewhere and forming the ice layer on the freezer floor. I think maybe the defrost drain hose may be frozen...is this possible and how do I fix the problem AND prevent it from happening in the future?

My freezer is leaking water from the backside and the water is flowing thru the bottom portion of the freezer and out the front. The water freezes on impact covering the drain hole and I have to get a hammer to break up the ice daily. After I hear a loud shut off noise the back portion of the freezer has a red glow and you can hear the water hitting a heating element. Is this the compressor and should I just replace the fridge all togethe? Was purchased in 1989.

I have water leaking under freezer side of door. I turned the ice maker off, turned off the water to the fridge, cleaned out the ice behind the panels, and put it all back together. Every couple of days I chip the ice off of the bottom of freezer; if I forget I get a puddle of water on my hard wood floor. The plug is in the drain hole.

Hi. You answered a question about a "sizzle" noise coming from the freezer of a GE Profile side-by-side.
