Remove the food and the ice maker from the freezer ( if equiped ) . Remove the rear freezer panel . Using a hair dryer , start in the middle , below the coils , defrosting , until you see the drain hole . Use hot water to help defrost the hole . Once water starts going thru the hole , use a small hose inserted into the hole , and blow thru , to remove any unseen debris in the drain line . Use an ALUMINUM or COPPER solid wire , 14-16 guage , with the insulation completely off , and insert one end into the drain hole as far as possible without any force . Wrap the other end about 1 1/2 to 2 turns , around the black rod (defrost heater) , above the hole . When refrig goes into defrost , the heat will transfer from the heater , to the wire , keeping the hole from freezing up again .

Our refrigerator is cooling and our freezer is freezing, but there is a leak coming from the freezer area that is dripping down into the refrigerator that just keeps getting worse and worse. Appears that it may be coming from the filter area in the middle of the top of the freezer. It started small and dripped down on to the top left shelf, now I am keeping towels on every shelf to keep them somewhat dry. The freezer area appears also to be getting frost on the food as well. model gts22wcp

I have a Kenmore refrigerator with the bottom freezer. I just finished defrosting it and it keeps leaking water from the freezer portion of the refrigerator. I figured that I did not give it enough time to thaw completely so I redid it and left it unplugged for 12 hours. There was no water leaking from it at the time but as soon as I start it up again the water leaks from the bottom again as usual.

SubZero 550 Water keeps collecting at the bottom of the refrigerator, behind the vegetable bins. I see it leaking from the drain pipe and the handyman has tried to clamp the pipe, but not sure why so much moisture and water are coming.
