SOURCE: FF200EP Fridge Freezer - water

I had the same problem, the fridge would leak overnight (usually) I found with some more searching the answer..... try it at you own risk!
Here are 2 detailed answers depending on your circumstances/technical ability....Turn off fridge....
1. Defrost fridge...catch all the water
or
2. Work quickly....
Remove drawers, at the back of the fridge there is a panel with 5 phillips screws (note that there are long and short screws). Remove the screws and the panel. (if you chose the second option then this will be "frozen in place" so you will get crunching noise when you peel it away - so be careful when removing it). At the top of the panel is a connector that powers the fan, squeeze the 2 sides in to remove. This will allow the panel/ducting to be removed from the fridge. (If you chose option 2 you will now probably see a large lump of ice over the drain hole).
Remove ice or debris from drain hole, re-asssmble not forgetting to connect the fan again!!!) then repower the fridge following the instructions as you will get the alarms... the fridge cools and the warning lights dissapear.......24 hours on mine is OK!

SOURCE: water in freezer bottom and water leaking out from

Clean the drain pan and drain line in the back of the freezer section underneath the evaporator coil. Make sure water drains when you pour it in. If it doesn't - also clean drain tube on the back of the unit behind the cover. When done - put the tube exactly where it was.
Good luck! :)

SOURCE: CSX27DR every day or so

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.

Part 224 on this DIAGRAM is your drain tube.

Ge GSL25JFTA is leaking water on the floor from the front of the unit


Turn off the water supply to the ice maker. If it stops the leak, look for a leaky O ring on the filter. There is a plastic hose that runs out of the front of the refrigerator and goes to the freezer door for the water dispenser. It has a connector near the freezer door lower hinge so the door can be removed easily. That connector can leak as well. There is a condensate pan under the refrigerator that may be over flowing too.

My Whirlpool Gold French Door Refrigerator GX2FHDXVD is leaking underneath. The pan is cracked. How do I remove the pan?


i don't think there is a pan in your machine,it's built into the bottom frame near the compressor where the water evaporates from the heat.most likely you have a blocked drain in the freezer or one of the water lines has a crack or the water valve is cracked and leaking.open the freezer door,look at the floor of the freezer to see if there's any ice there on the freezer floor,if so you have a blocked drain,where is the water leaking from,in the front of the machine or the rear,also do you have a water line hooked up to the machine?

Kenmore side by side with water occasionally leaks water at bottom front. About every 2nd day. Whzt could cause this?


Most cases, your freezer evaporator drain hole is frozen, every time it goes into defrost, water backs into the bottom of the freezer and leak on the floor. Try turn off the freezer for approx. 48hrs with door open, afterward turn it back on, most cases it will reset by it self, if no,t check door gasket, evaporator fan motor or debris in the drain hole. Good Luck.

Water leak


If the water is coming from the inside of the freezer (you will see ice build up on the freezer floor) then the drain is frozen over and will need to be cleared using hot water.  If not and if your model has a dispenser, then check the water line connector from the bottom front of the fridge to the freezer door.  Let me know what you find.
