Look for the drain trough on the bottom of the freezer and pour a mixture of baking soda and warm water down.

SOURCE: Magic Chef CTB1722 refrigerator leaking water from

Your 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 lower back of the freezer.

SOURCE: kelvinator frost free fridge leaking, pooling

Your refrigerator has a drain that leads to the exterior drain pan beneath the refrigerator. Occasionally this drain can become clogged resulting in standing water inside your refrigerator. A similar drain exists in the freezer, which when clogged results in ice build up on the floor of the freezer.

The drain is located either on the floor of the refrigerator, beneath the vegetable crisper, or in the wall behind a drain funnel.

Clear the drain by forcing a solution of water and bleach or water and baking soda into it with a basting syringe. If the solution will not flow through, slide a length of ¼ inch flexible tubing into the drain tube to push the clog through to the drain pan. Remove the tubing after clearing the clog.

NOTE-(This may be a leveling issue as well)

It is important for the refrigerator to be level. If it is not level, doors may not open or close properly and may not seal tightly. Also, drainage from the defrost cycle might be impaired as might the ice making cycle. The appliance was engineered based on it being installed in a level position. While there may be some tolerance for out-of-level installation, the appliance will operate at its best when properly leveled.

Place a level on top of the refrigerator near the front. Do not put it on the door because the door may not be aligned with the refrigerator case. Check that the refrigerator is level from side to side. Next turn the level to check that it is level from front to back.

If it is not level, adjust one or more of the adjustable leveling feet until it is level. The feet are bolts that can be turned to raise or lower the refrigerator. If they cannot be adjusted with your fingers, use a crescent wrench or pliers.

If you have an ice-maker, it should also be checked for level after first leveling the refrigerator. An ice-maker that is out of level will spill water into the ice bin or into the freezer. It can be repositioned by loosening the mounting screws, adjusting it for level and then re-tightening the screws.

SOURCE: Samsun RS265LA Water is under crisper drawer

Sounds like the typical defrost condensate line is stopped up and every time your refrigerator goes into defrost instead of water following the drain tube to the pan below your refrigerator where warm air blows over the water and returns it back into the air inside your home. This is a common problem that happens. Sometimes just the refrigerator leaning to left or right will begin the problem. Other times the tube gets backed up because of slime an crud and begins slowing the drain flow down to the point it backs up and spills over into freezer or fresh food compartment. Every refrigerator is a little different so click here=> REPAIR OF LEAKING REFRIGERATORS and scroll down to near bottom of page. Read and watch the You Tube movie clip and other material and if you have more questions ask. You may need to remove the rear panel in back of the freezer compartment or if your brand has dual evaporators you may need to go into the rear of the fresh food compartment. Not every Samsung has dual evaporators. here is your Service Manual=> RS265LA It does appear that you have two evaporators on your model. Look this may take a wet and dry vacuum and Clorox with warm water and once the drain is cleared you will not need to do this often. On page 17 is a view of the two evaporators. Watch the movie at the link above and it will be so much easier. Contact me if you run into problems. If need you may contact me here on Fixya or my Forum=> Appliance 911 My contact information is located above the Fixya Ad on my blog here=> Sea Breeze Appliance Parts and Technical Services, www.pcappliancerepair.com
Thanks, Sea Breeze

Water appearing on glass above crispers and onto the floor under the crispers. Happens only occasionally. No obvious source of leak. Back of fridge wall not wet.


Do you have a cooling plate at the rear or the fridge with a narrow tray at the bottom to collect the defrost water? Check the drain hole for obstruction.

Check the pipe that drains the water from the avaperator (the thing that gets cold inside on the fridge)
periodically your fridge will defrost and the water should drip through a tube and collect at the rear of the fridge
If the pipe is blocked the water collects inside at the bottom ( under the crisper)

My fridge is leaking from the bottom or the back i dont know which yet. but i see water on the right back corner on the floor. any idea what this could be


Greetings,
I guess, I need to know if its the floor of the refrigerator, or kitchen floor? if floor of refrigerator. Its most likely a drain issue..The defrost system melts the ice and that water flows into a drain. these become clogged from food particles and stop up. The water then travels the path of least resistence and ends up down inside refrigerator. The solution is to open up drain and usually all is well..

Now, if its just on the floor. we have to check all the obvious. it still could be the drain and water could be running out from under crispers onto the floor. So, check that first...if not, check the connections at icemaker valve (if you have one) again, check water line if you have one....make sure the drain hose is in the drain pan...sometimes the drain pan sits above the compressor and heat evaporates the water...these pans get a hole in them I hope this helps..let me know if you need any clarifications....Bruce
