Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Water, apparently from the freezer defrosting, collects in the refrigerator (top shelf, bottom crisper). I am unable to determine how it is getting there instead of running to the pan under the fridge. There is often a sheet of ice on the bottom of the freezer cabinet. Refrigerator and freezer work fine in all other regards. The unit is equipped with an icemaker but no water has ever been supplied to it. The unit is in an unheated, no AC garage.


Answers :

This is a common issue on some fridges. It is caused by:
1. Broken drain pipe.
2. Clogged drain pipe.

most of the times, the drain pipe gets clogged. It is hard to clean and not easy to replace. It should be visible at the back of the bottom of fridge.

Removing the vegetables compartment, you should be able to find it. If you are a handyman, you may be able to replace it, but it is not an easy job. Quite dirty job I may say.

I hope this helps.

Model: Hotpoint CTX18LYZDRWH About 13 years old. Water drips from the top of the refrigerator compartment (under the freezer) and collects in the bottom of the unit (under the crispers). Freezer works fine, temp in fridge is fine. I assume that some defrost drain tube is plugged. We are moving in the next day or two. Is this inexpensively fixable, or should I leave the unit where it is?

Jfd2589kes Ice maker quit making ice, no water in tray. Freezer is drawer type below fridge. Cold water maker inside fridge works fine, so I know water supply and valve are okay. Supply line to ice maker comes from line at bottom of back of fridge; don't know where it goes or how to access whatever it comes from. Should I just replace entire icemaker unit inside the drawer and is it accessible to replace completely from inside the drawer ?

Freezer & freezer work fine. Water stops when refrige is set at 38 degrees. To keep water from freezing we have to set the refrige temp to 40 degrees, but find that temp not cold enough. Water can be found on bottom floor inside refrige where bottom bin is and it is partially frozen. At times I have water on the floor in front of refrige. I can solve the problem temporarily by turning off appliance and let it thaw.

Fridge and freezer are working just fine. But, I keep getting pools of water inside my fridge. These pools stay to the back of the fridge on all levels and they sometimes turn to ice. I notice ice layer on the freezer bottom too. We turned off the ice maker water valve thinking this was the problem, but pools kept coming. I notice a little drain behind the bottom drawer but can't see how the water would get there as the drawer is in the way.
