Did any of the repairmen replace the heater which is at fault or did all three of them change it? If it has not been changed then I would suggest that it should be. If it continues to be a problem then you can get drainline heaters added to the system but you would need to talk to a fridge guy before they wasted a journey. The other possibility is that the front cover is not inside the drain pan or a leak in the drain pan, and if you have an icemaker you could even get water coming from further up the cabinet. Either way I would suggest picking your favourite of the three and tell them that the problem is unresolved. Most fridge guys offer some sort of warranty on work that they do. Hope this is of some help.

SOURCE: Water collecting in refrigerator and ice collecting in freezer

sounds like you have a clogged defrost drain tube. removing back panel of freezer will give you access to drain trough, melt away the ice with a hair dryer, youll find a drain hole under there somewhere,pouring boiling water down the drain will clear it pretty quickly( i use a steam machine purchased from the infomercials works awesome, after you clear it and all water drain down tube wrap a piece of solid copper wire around the heater( black heater right above the drain trough) and stick it in the whole maybe an inch or so. now every time the heater comes on to defrost it will prevent the hole from freezing over

Your defrost drain hole is frozen closed.
Remove the back freezer panel and defrost the ice with a hair dryer.
Once the drain is clear poura 1/4 cup bleach in the drain hole.

SOURCE: water leaks from freezer onto top shelves.

Remove the food and the ice maker from the freezer ( if equiped ) . Remove the rear freezer panel . Using a hair dryer , start in the middle , below the coils , defrosting , until you see the drain hole . Use hot water to help defrost the hole . Once water starts going thru the hole , use a small hose inserted into the hole , and blow thru , to remove any unseen debris in the drain line . Use an ALUMINUM or Copper solid wire , ( a ground wire or fence post tie ) 14-16 guage , with the insulation completely off , and insert one end into the drain hole as far as possible without any force . Wrap the other end about 1 1/2 to 2 turns , around the black rod (defrost heater) , above the hole . When refrig goes into defrost , the heat will transfer from the heater , to the wire , keeping the hole from freezing up again .

Samsung RS2630sh. Drain line Freezes shut. Water drains to bottom of freezer and freezes there. Cooling coils are not collecting ice. Drain line has been cleaned. Why does it keep freezing shut?


If water still collecting and freezing at freezer bottom then drain line is not cleared and still obstructing the normal flow of water downward.

I have a Kenmore Coldspot (mfg date 10/00), model 106.70192001. The ice maker is NOT hooked up (by choice) and for the last several weeks, there has been water draining from freezer into fridge in a cyclic...


Your drain line is frozen and is not allowing the defrost water to drain to the pan below. You will need to remove the rear panel in the freezer and thaw the drain line. Make sure ALL ice is thawed before reassembling. I would recommend installing a drain heater so it will not happen again. They are inexpensive and easy to install. They come with complete instructions.

Water on shelves leaking from freezer i already cleared the drain and its doing it again i have warm air blowing out of a leuvered vent at the back of the freezer under the ice maker...why


while clearing out the drain, you may have accidentally punctured the evaporator coil. You may be dealing with a sealed system problem, loss of freon.

Water collects at bottom/Ice forms in top


Hi,

The defrost drain is located just under the cooling coils in the back of the freezer. You will need to unload the food and remove the shelves from the freezer. Take the back panel off from inside the freezer and you will see a hole just below the coils. Flush it with hot water using a turkey baster or small hose. See the link below for more details.

Water in box waqter keeps accumulating on shelves iveg bins andunder bins


When the freezer goes through the defrost cycle, the water collects in the defrost drain pan and drains into a pan underneath the unit where it evaporates over time. If the defrost drain pan is clogged, the water will fill the pan where it will freeze. Once the pan is full of ice, the water from the defrost cycle will run over the pan and down into the fresh food section. This will require that the drain pan be clean of the ice and the drain tube cleared of ice and debris.
Hope this helps.

Leaking water from kenmore freezer to refrig below


its possible that the drain pan behind the back freezer wall is clogged or coverd with ice, sounds like when unit goes into defrost melt water leaks under sides of drain pan and into fridge. unplug and remove back freezer wall if drain is covered with ice defrost the ice, can be prevented by loosely coiling a piece of solid copper wire around element and into drain slightly radiant heat during defrost should keep drain fromicing over. if drain is just clogged wth debris clean drain and you should be good to go, hope this helps you.

Water collects on shelves in refrig.


sounds like a drain clog in the freezer compartment above. remove the freezer rear panel and totally defrost the evaporator area, directly under the evap you see( under all taht ice) a small drain hole that has become frozen over, try defrosting with either a hair dryer( not a heat gun too much heat youl melt everything) or by pouring hot water donw the drain until you get a free flow of water down the tube. after its clear reassemble and you should be fine
