Problem:    “Water is leaking to the bottom of my freezer causing ice to build up.”

Solution:    If you find water on the floor in front of your refrigerator, or a big block of ice frozen to the bottom of your freezer, you are most likely the unlucky recipient of a clogged defrost drain.  Once or twice a day your refrigerator turns off and the defrost cycle begins.  A heater turns on and melts all the frost off of the evaporator to allow it to cool properly.  That water then travels down a defrost drain to a pan at the bottom of the refrigerator, where the heat from the compressor evaporates it.  Unfortunately, it is very common for the defrost drain to get clogged with lint or debris, which causes the water to get backed up and freeze.  This will then lead to water going everywhere the next time the defrost cycle begins.  If you are having this problem call us and one of our experienced technicians will come melt the ice and unclog your defrost drain immediately.
