This is the 2nd frost free frig that we've seen this with. There is a
water build-up under the crisper drawers (on the bottom of the frig.)
The defroster seems to be functioning ok. One frig is a magic chef model
Anyone know what's causing this or how to stop it?
When the freezer defrosts the water runs down a tube into a condensation pan
under the refrig. If that tube gets clogged with food or mold, the tube
will overrun and water will run down the back inside of the refrig and end
up under the crispers. Check the end of the tube under the refrig or in the
freezer. Running hot water down it will sometimes work or just cleaning the
bottom if it appears clogged.
Clogged drain line. A repair person (possibly yourself) needs to take
all the food out of the freezer. Take apart the back of the freezer
from inside. Clear the drain. Probably some ice frozen onto the top of
the drain hole.
