SOURCE: leaking water frm bottom

with this amount of regularity i would have to believe you have a rather large ice ball on the very bottom of the freezer. if this is true you have a clogged defrost drain... you can fix it free
take out the bottom 3 shelves break away all the ice care full its plastic take out the 1/4 bolts holding in the back panel
you will see the coil.
you need to defrost this completely, then comes the fun part
you need to defrost the whole thing the tube is dead center that will need to be cleasred as well,
if your really into it you can pull the unit out take off the back and check the tube from there as well
id be willing to bet, there is a small srew in the tube but thats another story it will come out
once clear you should be ok
you can also take the duck bill off the tube end that sits in the pan just make sure you put the tube back in the pan,........ close it up your done
if there is no obvious blockage you have another problem ,,,, but now it will show up

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 lower back of the freezer.
Take a bare copper wire and wrap it around a fin near the heater and put the other end a few inches down the drain. The heat convection may prevent it from freezing.

SOURCE: bottom freezer is leaking water. Water seems to

You have a clogged defrost drain. The problem is fixed by unplugging unit from wall, open both doors, blow fan for 24 hours to SAFELY remove the ice covering the drain hole. If you use ANY other method, you may regret it. Once ice is melted, remove debris that is likely blocking the small drain hole, if no debris in drain pan, direct some high pressure air down the drain to block the debris INSIDE the tubing. Furthermore, its a good idea to make the drain hole in the drain pan larger, as sometimes a bubble of water can freeze in the drain hole, and ice could be the cause of your blockage from that bubble.

SOURCE: I have an Amana BRD18V1 or V2, bottom freezer.

I assume you mean water leaking on floor of bottom freezer? There should be a small hole in floor in back to drain defrosted water down to pan under unit. This line might be clogged with food or frozen water. Carefully pour some hot/boiling water down tube to clear. You should see it empty into pan under unit where fan evaporates it.

My Maytag MZD2766GES is leaking water to the bottom of my freezer, which, when it get alot starts leaking all over the floor. where is this coming from?


Hello,


The water is from the melted frost of the defrost cycle. The drain at the bottom of the back wall of the freezer is blocked so instead of the water draining into the pan where it will evaperate,it's pooling on the freezer floor and freezing, in many case when the floor indent is full the water will leak onto the floor.By pulling the refrigerator out from the wall,there will be a tube behind the service panel on the right side when looking at it from the rear,that tube can be removed and cleared,then clear the nozzle it connects to inside the freezer.

I hope this helps you to stop the leak,
Gene

What year is my fridge and the freezer side is leaking water


We just had this same problem and thought is was our ice maker leaking. Turns out there is actually a small drain hole on the bottom of the freezer where condensation and such goes. Take out your bottom drawer/shelf and look in the back of the freezer. Ours was plugged up and frozen over. We called a repair man and he came out with a steamer and cleaned it out, there was some lint clogging it up. If you are handy or have a steamer (we didn't) you could probably do it yourself. I think we paid the repair man $65 to fix it. It now works fine. Much cheaper than getting a new fridge.
Another possibility is that The water is from condensation. If the water from it is draining onto your floor, then that indicates that your refrigerator is not level. You have to adjust the legs on the bottom until the fridge is level. After that, the water should drain the way it's supposed to & not end up on your floor. Hope this helps.

Amana bottom freezer: water leaking & ice build-up


There should be some kind of drain at bottom of freezer compartment to collect and run off any condensate that collects during defrost cycle.. Clean out the drain and snake out the line that leads from it. Right now the liquid is collecting where it should not and it will leak out the gasket when you have enough of it.

Samsung Fridge Freezer leaking water


hi August.
Cause: A blocked defrost drain is one of the most common causes of water leakage. This happens when food particles or other debris clogs up the drain hose, which can lead to ice buildup and, eventually, water leaking out of the freezer and refrigerator.
3 common refrigerator problems you can easily fix yourself

The freezer drain hose will drain the defrost water into a drip pan at the bottom of the freezer. When this pan becomes full, it will leak water onto the floor. This is a regular maintenance task whenever the freezer defrosts. Empty the drip pan during the defrost cycle.
How to Fix Water Leaking From the Bottom of Freezer

Why is my fridge leaking water on the floor? If the refrigerator is leaking water it's possible that the refrigerator has a clogged or freezing defrost drain. If the defrost drain freezes the defrost water will overflow the drain and drip down to the bottom of the compartment, If enough water accumulates in the bottom it can run out onto the floor.
