Answers :

The hole to evap tray tends to get plugged. After unplugging, it may take an hour to drain entire system. Then system needs to go through the defrost cycle. There is likely a buildup of water that was frozen and will now drain. Keep an eye on the evap tray through the process to make sure it doesn't overflow.
Hi.

Check that freezer temperature is not getting too low.

If there is no ice melting, then the water is from condensation.

Click here to get the list of drain parts with relative schematics.

You can also try a compete defrost, so to melt ice that can obstruct the drain lines.

Kenmore Model number 74254 Had water building up in the refrigerator section, saw a post that said to defrost it and add copper wire to drain port. Did this and it seemed to be working fine for a few days (ice maker working). Later noticed a lot of water on the floor. Looked in the evaporator tray and it was full of water.

My GE Side by Side refrigerator is leaking water inside the freezer section. I discovered a 1/2 inch thick sheet of ice on the bottom of the freezer section. I took a cover off the back about half way down and revealed a copper tube sitting on top of a black plastic tray that seems to have a drain hole towards the back. The plactic tray has water in it (some ice) and it doesn't seem to be draining. Is this a drain? Could this be my problem? Also, if it is a drain, where does the water go? It's n

I have water leaking under freezer side of door. I turned the ice maker off, turned off the water to the fridge, cleaned out the ice behind the panels, and put it all back together. Every couple of days I chip the ice off of the bottom of freezer; if I forget I get a puddle of water on my hard wood floor. The plug is in the drain hole. Is the heat element suppose to evaporate everthing when it goes through the defrost cycle? How do I quit having water run all over my floor?

I have an older 363.9552414. Water appears periodically on the floor in front of the refrigerator. It is hard to see just where it is coming from. There does not seem to be a drain hole in the refrigerator part, but there is a drain hole in the freezer section. There is a buildup of ice around the drain hole, and a thin sheet of ice on the floor of the freezer section. So my guess is the freezer drain hole is blocked, perhaps by ice, and water is building up and then leaking out the front p

Water is pooling in the bottom of the freezer compartment. It then freezes. Over time it builds up enough ice on the freezer floor such that the freezer door won't close. Then the ice melts and runs onto the floor. I can't figure out where the water is coming from that is collecting on the freezer floor. Home Depot's online Repair Guru suggested that I have a clogged defrost drain. I don't doubt that but I don't know how to get access to that drain so as to try to unclog it.

Ice was building up in the lower freezer and water was running down on top of the ice and out of the freezer and on to the floor. I assumed it was a plugged drain not allowing the water to go out and then causing it to refreeze. I cleaned the drain tube, but now, a few days later, I see ice building up again. It is not leaking, but I think in time it will. What else can I check. Is it possible that the freezer is somehow keeping itself too cool and freezing the water (from the defrost cycle) bef

I have a Kenmore side by side model # 106.53609202 and its about 8 years old. About a month ago it stopped making ice. I've already replaced the water valve behind the fridge and waited 24 hours and still no ice. The water dispensor in the freezer door works fine. I haven't heard the ice maker 'call' for water either. The drain hole in back of the freezer was blocked with ice but I cleared it with hot water. The short water tube that feeds the ice tray is not plugged up. I think that's about it.
