Question and Answers


Why does water collect freeze and leak out at the bottom of freezer section?


NOTE: Unplug the refrigerator or remove power before removing the evaporator cover.

Most likely the defrost drain trough is plugged with an ice blockage causing the water to collect and freeze on the freezer floor when it goes into a defrost cycle.

Key# 64 in the first image is most likely where the blockage is. To gain access to the defrost drain trough the lower evaporator cover (key#10A) will need to be removed. Once the lower evaporator cover has been removed break the thick sheet of ice into small pieces by striking the ice with the handle end of a large screwdriver or hammer. Once broken up you should be able to remove the ice in big sections. Once the sheet of ice has been removed from the drain trough pour hot water in the trough or use a hair dryer to thaw the ice blockage in the drain tube (key#64).

I recommend checking the ice maker fill tube for leaking water too coming into the rear of the ice maker. Each time the ice maker cycles it may be leaking some water behind the evaporator and down into the drain trough too.
