I have a Samsung french door fridge.


Freezer /fridge water/ice in fridge and or freezer

Usually due to CONDENSATION due to bad door seals or a plugged evaporator drain line? Can use a soft flexable tubing and very hot water to clean it out. Bad door seals usually need replacement, but u can use a blow dryer and something to pry it closer to the door wall while blowing hot air on to it. To create a seal, to test for bad door seals place a dollar bill in between the door and wall of fridge where it closes. Then slide out the dollar bill with door closed. It should offer some resistance and not be easy to pull out.
Most all fridges have a drain. Look inside your fridge for a "V" shaped channel with a small hole. This hole leads to a tube and a small pan which sits on top of your refrigerator's compressor. The defrost cycle causes water to run into the channel, down the tube, and then it generally evaporates with the heat of the hot condenser/compressor.
However, if that tube is clogged with food crumbs, particles , debris etc, you will have to clear it to get back to a normal mode of operation. A toothpick, pipecleaner, straw or a cotton bud can often do the trick.
Even a frost free freezer will still ice up at times in the areas away from the heated defrost area and the drain line can freeze. This icing causes the pipe work to the compressor to ice over or sweat and cause a puddle. Or if the drainage has frozen over, it will need to be de-iced. ( usually the line is under the freezer bottom plate covering. Towards the back of the unit) And there is another inside the fridge area also.
Give the freezer a good overnight defrost until it's totally clear of ice in addition to making sure the drain is clear to the pan at the back and then restart the freezer.

Samsung rf265abpn ice forming behind Fresh food fan, ice filling up funnel under cooling unit, was told to hang a piece of coat hanger off heat coil.


Hi Mike,
You could have an outside airleak which would let in warm moist air into the freezer.OR the condensate drain tube is plugged up or frozen up. thats the drain tube that drains the melted ice from the freezer OR the condenser fan located buy the compressor is not running. Check all drain tubes and drain channels for clo-
ging or freeze-up due to improper and complete draining.

Leaking water inside of refrigerator. Ice maker is off and disconnected from water supply. Seals around doors look fine and seem to close tight, no signs of cracking. No cracks in interior of...


Hello Rick,

That water is from the melting frost of the automatic defrost cycle. Their is drain in the freezer behind the back wall under the evaperator coil that is blocked, so instead of defrost water draining it's pooling in the freezer or in some case espically on models with the freezer on the top,the water is leaking from the freezer vents into the fresh food compartment.
The way to clear the drain is remove back plate and remove all ice build up and GENTLY make a small hole in drain through then totally flush w/warm water.
The exact location of drain is under the coil behind back freezer plate in the center

Good luck

I hope this helps

Refrigerator portion on top does have cooling but freezer on bottom works fine. I have read that the cooling all happens in the bottom and a fan transfers cool air to the the top.


if the fridge part is cool and freezer is fine what problem are you having?is the fridge not cold enough? a common problem with bottom mount freezers is the freezer door doesn't get closed all the way,warm air enters the freezer mixes with the zero degree air and freezes up the air ducts,when you open the freezer door you should hear the fan blowing,if it is check the ceiling in the freezer to see if ice is on it,check the packages for frozen water droplets and stick your hand in the fridge where the air ducts are to see if you can feel cold air blowing into the fridge,if you can't feel air blowing into the fridge,unplug it,open the freezer door,remove the top basket and remove all the food out of the bottom basket,with a hair dryer blow into the back wall into the vent holes and melt out all the ice in the ducts,you'll see water dripping down through the vent holes,when the water stops dripping plug it back in and see if the fan is blowing the air into the fridge.also you can remove the bottom kickplate and you should see a tech sheet in it,read it and it will tell you how to put the machine into defrost,it will stay in defrost for like 20 minutes,you can do this instead of unplugging it, there's a heater that comes on behind the back panel in the freezer,this can help you melt out the ice but if it seems to hard to do just unplug it.

Water comes out freezer door


Defrost that drain with a hair dryer and remove the debris . That should solve the problem . The red you see ( this is normal ) , is the defrost heater , thawing out the frost on the coils . The defrost water HAS to go out the drain or it will freeze the opening and the defrost water will flow out thru the bottom of the freezer door .
