Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Water was found on the bottom of unit on the floor, what could be the problem. I notice water in the tray on the bottom also.


Answers :

This sounds similar to ours. We removed the drawers and maybe the bottom 2 shelves. Clamped to the back wall of the Ref. is a tube that collects condensation and directs it to the pan under the unit. That tube clogs with moldy junk. We removed the tube by ubscrewing the 2 clamps (note the position on the wall) and carefully pulling it out from the bottom of the unit (you might be better off not pulling it out and, instead, pushing a wire through the tube and flushing it clear down into the pan below the unit - this would preserve whatever seal there may be at the bottom on the inside of the Ref where the tube goes through). Once the tube is clear again, re-install it to wall with the 2 clamps. Then remove kickplate in front of unit at floor if you didn't already do that and empty the pan. Reverse the order and finish up. You should be good until the tube clogs again (for us that seems to be every 2-3 years, more or less. Good luck.
Either a cracked drain pan or a broken water line. If you only see the water once a day or so....or once every few days it is probably a cracked drain pan.

I have an LG LSC 26905TT side by side and I found water coming from under the unit on my tile floor. I pulled it out and removed the lower back panel and found that the plastic catch tray at the bottom was full of water.

I bought the ABR1922fes3 in July '09. In Sept '10 I noticed water leaking from underneath the unit. (there is no ice maker). After investigating, I found that the drip tray at the bottom of the unit has pretty much disintegrated, literally. It has fractured into many pieces. I ordered another tray from Amana, but they offer no help in doing the replacement. Is this something you could guide me through. Thank in advance.

Water leaking on to the floor (usually the front right hand side). I've checked the drip trays that catch the defrost water and they seem ok. I've also cleaned the condenser. The problem only began as the weather warmed up so could it be condensation on the outer case of the fridge because when it was installed with the kitchen, the joiner 'clad' the front and right hand side panels with wood to match the cupboards so any condenstaion would be hidden?

Have a 17 year old Kelvinator N640T side by side no frost fridge freezer. Runs well except ice builds up on the bottom of the freezer compartment and when it builds up too much some melts spilling water onto the floor of the kitchen. Were advised that it could be the door seals (have now replaced them with new ones)but problem is still there except that the ice does not now build up as quickly as before. Were also advised that it could be the defrost mechanism. Any comments welcomed. Thank

Refrigerator is leaking onto the floor under it; I found warped wood so it must be an ongoing problem.

Freezer & freezer work fine. Water stops when refrige is set at 38 degrees. To keep water from freezing we have to set the refrige temp to 40 degrees, but find that temp not cold enough. Water can be found on bottom floor inside refrige where bottom bin is and it is partially frozen. At times I have water on the floor in front of refrige. I can solve the problem temporarily by turning off appliance and let it thaw.


It may have auto-defrost or frost-free feature that is not operating. Also there is a drain tube that goes from the compartments to the bottom of the fridge where the evaporator pan is. The tube may be plugged. ... Samsung RS2556 Side by Side Refrigerator
