Why is my refrigerator leaking water on the floor?
If your fridge has water pooling at the bottom, the defrost tube is your MOST likely suspect. Your defrost tube is what carries the water all the way down to the drain pan where it eventually evaporates. This tube can get clogged with ice or debris which leads to water backing up and leaking back into the fridge.
What causes leaky refrigerator?
One of the most common causes of a leaky refrigerator is a faulty defrost drain. When the defrost drain is blocked by food particles or ice, it prevents the water accumulated during the defrost cycle to properly drain into the pan. Eventually, water will start to build up.
How do you fix a Frigidaire refrigerator that leaks water?
If your Frigidaire refrigerator leaks water from behind, the line may be damaged or compromised by incorrect connections. Move the refrigerator away from the wall to inspect the water line for cracks. Make sure the supply valve and inlet hose connections are sufficiently tight and that hoses are properly inserted.
How do you fix a leaking refrigerator floor?
Inspect your defrost drain for a blockage. Cue the condensation collecting on the coils and, soon, water dripping onto the floor just like in the scenario of an improperly leveled fridge. Unclogging the drain then should eliminate the leak.
How do you know if your refrigerator is leaking?

Common solutions for: Frigidaire Refrigerator leaking water. If the defrost drain is frozen, the water will overflow the drain trough and drip down to the bottom of the compartment. This water can eventually leak onto the floor. Check the defrost drain to determine if it is clogged or frozen.
How do I stop my freezer from leaking?
To stop the freezer from leaking, you will need to get the drain tube cleared of ice or debris. There may be ice in the tube or it may be clogged with debris. Use a turkey baster filled with hot water and force the water into the drain hole. Repeat this multiple times to clear out the DRAIN TUBE.
Why is my Frigidaire mini refrigerator leaking water inside?
The top two reasons why mini fridges tend to leak are a blocked defrost drain and the water supply might also be blocked or frozen. A blocked defrost drain is easy to fix. A blocked or frozen defrost drain can also be unblocked at home.
Is there a drip pan under my fridge?
While refrigerators vary in design, the drip pan is almost universally located in the bottom of the unit. In many refrigerators, you can access the drip pan from this area. In other models you may need to slide the refrigerator out from the wall and get to the pan from the bottom, rear of the unit.
