    Default water leak, ice on bottom of freezer

    We have a Frigidaire side by side model # FRS26ZNJS. I noticed a puddle of water underneath the fridge. It seems to be leaking quite often because I usually have to wipe it up at least 1/day. Also frozen water has collected on the bottom of the freezer.

    The fridge has a water and ice dispenser in the door of the freezer side. We shut off water to the dispenser and the problem continued.

    Any idea on what might be causing this? Not sure how to access the bottom side of the freezer to see what is going on...

    Thanks in advance for helping with our problem!

    Sounds like your defrost drain line is clogged, take all your food out of the freezer, then take off the lower back panel inside the freezer, then you will see a drain hole on the bottom below your evaporator coils, it made be iced-up, just get a hair dryer and hot water to melt it, then get something to run down the drain line.

    I use a evaporator cooler spider snake:

    They are used basically in Arizona to clean out the water pump tubes that run to the cooler pads.

    I don't know if they would sell them in your area, but if you go to your local hardware store, they should have something similar to run down your drain to clean it completely out.
