JennAir Refrigerator Leaking

11 posts in this topic

I have had a JennAir #JCD2389GES refrigerator for a little over one year and recently I have noticed a puddle of water forming almost daily under the front left corner of the unit.  I have not been able to pinpoint what could potentially be causing it nor have I been able to find the source.  The puddle varies in size and is always located under the freezer side of the unit towards the front of the unit.  I hope someone could help me find what is causing the mystery puddle.  Thanks

P.S. The refrigerator and freezer are working great...of course other than the damn puddle.

This could be caused by the defrost drain plugged up.  This would cause the defrost water to run into the freezer and out onto the floor.  Take a look at the drain located at the bottom, back of the freezer under the evaperator.

Come in and have some tea :java:

Chances are that you have a blocked defrost drain. Its the hole in the middle of item 14.

So what you are saying is that the defroster drain is plugged up and is backing up inside my freezer?  This would cause some water to be in the bottom of my freezer that eventually turns to ice?  Of course some water slips out onto the floor prior to it freezing in the bottom of my freezer?  Ok so where would I be able to find this drain thingee and evaporator?  Is it inside the freezer? or outside of it?  how do I get to it?  Thanks for your help

Ooppsss...I think I replied too quick, man you guys are good!

Should I access that thing from inside the freezer or pull the unit out and get to it from behind?

Inside. Remove the baskets/bins, then remove panel 20, see what's going on.

I am having the same problem. I found it was all frozen with ice inside and outside of the part #14 underneath the evaporator and water floating on top and down into the freezer floor. Once I removed the ice I checked the drain hole and it is now clear down. What does the drain tube lead to and is there a way to remove the excess water below the drain tube? Is there a chance it can flow out from the bottom somewhere? How do I stop this from happening again? I am now drying out my damaged hardwood and I do not want to go through this again.

Thanks

In the normal course of events, the condensate runs into a pan on or near the compressor, and the heat and air movement in that area is enough to evaporate it.

Thanks for your reply, Mad mac. Unfortunately, not much has been normal with this refrigerator. Warping door, sticking icemaker, jammed icemaker, falling door bins(from the warping door panel)adaptive defrost control failure. :X
