I seem to be having a defrost issue with my fridge. Every couple of months about 3 cups of water will leak out the back of the refridgerator. I instantly look under the fridge and the drip tray will have water in it but it is no where near full. Now last night as I was heading to bed I noticed about a cup and a half of water in front of the fridge. On closer inspection I noticed that the bottom of the freezer has a sheet of ice on it and down the back wall of the freezer there is frozen droplets of water there too. The seal for the freezer door was also wet.

I am wondering if there is some sort of drain line that may be plugged that is causing this problem?
Is there a certain operateing temperature range for these appliances? My home temps range from 60* to 67* in the winter months.

Thank you for your time and advice,


Drake Woodruff

O.K. Drake onestep at a time;)

1. We need the first three digits of model#

 2. Yes there is a drain tube in the freezer in the back that is plugged.

3. Frozen water droplets means there is a air leak, either due to gasket on doors not sealing or if you have a ice and water dispensor in the door the ice dispensor flap is not sealing 

4.  The wet door gaskets usually mean that the power saver switch needs turned off to energize the mullion heater to eliminate the moisture.

1. 106.50593003
2. Where in the back is the tube? Is it outside the fridge or is it inside behind some trim?
3. It does not look like an airleak situation as the ice was on the very back wall of the freezer and looked like it dripped down the back wall and that led to #4.
4. It is not a heater issue as the water that was on the gasket came from the floor of the freezer as it dripped down the back of the fridge.

Thank you for your help.

Hi OneStep, The drain is in the freezer section. You will need to take the rear panel out of the freezer to gain access to the drain, it's on the bottom underneath the evaporator. Take a hair dryer or a heat gun if you have one to get rid of as much ice as possible. When you get to the drain add salt and boiling water to flush out drain, I then run some plastic tubing down the drain hole, this should solve your problem.
