Hi, the Samsung Refrigerator (French door / bottom freezer) is newer (2+ years old) -- there is moisture in the Vegetable crisper drawer and under the drawer (in the refrigerator).

Reading through online forums -- the number one reason appears to be a blocked defrost drain. I have checked the defrost drain and verified it is clear (poured warm water through it).

Key Question: Is there another reason, or reasons (things to check) which would cause moisture in the refrigerator (under drawer) when the defrost drain is clear?

Thanks, HisRocker

may be a bad Door Gasket
Try the George Wa$hington test on all (3) Door Gaskets ...
close the Door on George and slide him around the Gasket.
check to be sure he stays snug

Stupid question: which defrost drain did you check, the fresh food or freezer?

I have had an issue with a few of these fridges where the water continually drips into the bottom of the fridge and the crisper. According to Samsung, they want you to replace the rear fridge panel, although I found that didn't help much and it started to happen again. I jimmied the drain tray to make sure it had a high lip against the fridge panel, made sure the Styrofoam on the rear panel was completely dry before reinstalling and made sure the fridge was level if not a bit higher in the front to avoid this. I did this for three fridges and didn't hear back, but honestly, it seemed mickey mouse to me too! :whistling:

reelynyceguy - thanks - Initially, I did check for a drain in the refrigerator, but couldn't find one. Next, I checked the freezer defrost drain -- Yours is a very good question because -- based on Brooke's comments -- I didn't see a drain for the refrigerator after taking out the two crisper drawers -- I take it is towards the back of the refrigerator unit?

Brooke - thanks for your very good comments too... I'll check the level on the refrigerator and make sure it's slightly higher in the front ... will look for the defrost drain in refrigerator again --

Can you or reelynyceguy specify exactly where this drain is located -- based on your comment above -- I would think it's on the back bottom (center?).

Thanks again, HisRocker
