Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Water in the bottom of the freezer that freezes, then the water goes out the door and is messing up my floor. My fridge is a Frigidaire side by side model MRS26LGJ. Yesterday, I cleaned out the freezer and put pans of boiling water in it. I hoped this would unclog anything but I have had to get ice from the bottom of the freezer 3 times since yesterday. What do I do now?? Sandi Sharp


Answers :

The defrost drain located behind the freezer back panel has gotten clogged. You will need to remove the panel to gain proper access to the defrost drain. After removing the ice build up you will have to also clear the tube using boiling water alittle at a time poured into the drain opening. this will open the tube up and gain proper flow again.

Frequent water discharge / leak (maybe 4-6 oz.) occurring more often (but not always) after opening freezer side. I don't have plumbing access, so there is no connection to the ice maker or water dispenser. When this does happen it is also visable on the bottom rubber gasket that can be seen when either or both doors are opened. There also appears to be some ice forming on the bottom of the freezer side, under the slide out drawer. Any thoughts? Is this a familiar problem?? Any help would be app

Maytag fridge, side to side. Model# MSD2757AEB Bought on Sept. 1999 The bottom of the freezer forms a deep layer of ice; I remove that ice, but it keeps ddoing the same.

Water leaks out of the bottom of GE Profile side-by-side only when water is being dispensed. The leak appears to be coming from underneath. There is no evidence of a water leak on the inside of the freezer. Also, just in the last couple of days before the leak started, when the water dispenser was pushed there was about a two second delay before the water would begin to come out. Please help. It is only about 4.5 years old.

The ice maker on our GE side by side refrigerator will not make ice at times. It works after I thaw out the freezer for about a week or so. Seems to have a layer of ice or water at the bottom of the freezer floor. This has happened 2x's in the last 2 months and for the first time yesterday there was a puddle on the floor outside of the freezer too. (the puddle happened right after returning from a 10 days trip and being opened up for the 1st time in that time period.)
