hotpoint refridgerator leaking from the bottom

6 posts in this topic

Last night I noticed a puddle coming from under the fridge. I pulled the fridge out and it looked like it was coming from underneath, about 2/3 of the way back. I mopped it up and this morning the puddle was back. I just moved into this house and the fridge came with it so I don't know how old it is, but it looks pretty old.

Would suspect the defrost drain water is going onto the floor.  Look under the frig and see if the defrost drain tube is putting the water into the pan or if the pan itself is even still there.  If it is see if it has a crack in the pan.

Wow, thanks for the quick response. I just realized the freezer was set to the lowest setting. Everything was still frozen and there was no water in the freezer, but it looks like water is running down the back of the inside of the fridge from the top of the fridge/bottom of freezer. Could this be caused from the freezer being set so low, even if there is no water in the freezer?

thanks

wait a minute, I just realized the drip pan was crooked, looks like the water was going on the floor instead of the pan.

Look under the bottom chrispers to see  if there is a drain hole in the botttom of the box under the drawers.  If so it could be clogged.  If there is no drain hole there sounds like your defrost drain is clogged where it comes from the freezer into the drain trough under the freezer section into the food compartment and this could be clogged, as these do this quite often, take these apart and clean them out.
