Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Occasional puddle of water on the floor that is coming from the freezer area


Answers :

All refrigerators have a drain. This is for when your unit goes into a defrost mode. You do not have to empty your drain pan because the water evaporates by the heat of the compressor. If you have a side by side unit. Open your freezer door and remove the lower drawer down by your feet. If it is frozen in there by ice or if when you remove it there is ice on the bottom. It is your drain that is clogged. Any other questions. You can click contact Apco Now..

Water accumulates and freezes at the bottom of our freezer. Once the bottom of the freezer has formed a slab of ice the water eventually drains out of front of freezer and leaves a good size puddle on our kitchen floor.

I have a Jenn-Air refrigerator, Model JCD2389DE, and in the last two weeks we have noticed water puddling on the floor in front of the "freezer side" door. We thought maybe the water dispenser "stuck" on but this morning I saw water dripping out. I opened the door and water was running down through the inside of the freezer and coming out through the bottom door seal. The water dispenser and the ice maker appear to be working properly. Please give me your thoughts...

Once a day my refrigerator has water that comes out the front door of the freezer and pours onto my floor. The bottom of the freezer is full of water, and it does not matter if my ice maker is on or off, it still happens. Also occasionally the water dispenser will not dispense water, almost as if it is frozen but then eventually it begons working again. What do I need to do (especially for the water leak) before major damage is done?

Water accumulates and freezes in the bottom of the freezer compartment. Eventually, I find a big puddle of water on the floor of the kitchen. Shutting off the icemaker seems to help, but then I have no ice. What's wrong? Also, the refrigerator, which is 18 years old, seems to run pretty much all the time. If I turn the dial to OFF it stops OK, and when I set it at mid-range (5) it doesn't come back on again immediately, but when it does come on it again seems to shut down reluctantly, alt

I keep seeing a puddle of water at the bottom of my GE Profile refrigerator. I traced the water line, and it is not coming out of that. I cannot locate any drain pan.
