Small amount of water keeps appearing on the floor of a Maytag Fridge MFX2571XE.

Checked ice maker line first, naturally.

Checked door gaskets.

No water in evap pan.

Random occurrence.

 

Suspicious of defrost operation but not sure where water would go?

In the pan underneath?

 

Thanks,

Gary

Where is the water pooling up. Does it collect in the front just under the door?

Kicks major Samsung booty first, asks diagnostic questions later.

We are trying to determine that. The fridge is at my brothers (not PC savvy)  house and I spoke to him this morning and ask him to put paper underneath so we could try and locate where the water was falling from.

I will get back when I can narrow the location down.

Thanks for answering.

I should have done this before I posted.

Is there ice on the freezer floor? It may be transparent so you may have to touch it to check. If so, and I suspect there is, you have a clogged defrost drain tube. Remove evap cover and the ice covering the drainage hole that is beneath the evap. Use a steamer, hot water etc to clear drainagd tube. You may also have to access tube from the rear of the fridge and remove any debris clogging the tube.

Thanks so much.

We are going to look at that.

Certainly makes sense.

Just not sure where this is located till we take a look.

Concur w/Brother Durham.  If defrost drain is blocked, deice and clear as instructed.  Also replace existing "duckbill" grommet at defrost drain with redesigned grommet: http://www.repaircli...0619951/2887289

 

If water is pooling on floor of the fresh food section, remove rear tank cover and inspect water tank and inlet valve connections.
