    Default Samsung water in bottom of refrigerator - potentially easier fix

    Model Number: RF266ABBPXAA
    Brand: Samsung
    Age: 6-10 years

    I wanted to post this to the Samsung water in bottom of refrigerator thread but unfortunately it is closed.

    I have consistently had this issue for over a year and periodically remove the veggie try to dry out the water otherwise it overflows out of the fridge. However I noticed that I haven't had to remove the water puddle for a while so I looked under the veggie tray and to my surprise it is completely dry.

    The only thing I have changed recently is that propped up the front of the fridge with some small pieces of wood because it was leaning forward and wasn't quite level. Now it is level (maybe even slightly leaning back). So I am wondering if because it was leaning forward the water was prevented from going where it should and it somehow caused the issue.

    Anyways, I registered just to provide this feedback since this site was helpful to provide an even better fix in the closed thread mentioned above. Will post back here if the issue returns and this potential fix proves to be invalid.

    You may have already solved the problem by raising the front. When the machine goes into a defrost cycle the water needs to run out the drain hole under the evaporator. If it's not level or leaning too far in one direction the water can't drain.
