Why does my refrigerator defrost drain keep clogging?

Refrigerator defrost drain problems & Freezer defrost drain problems

If you open up your fridge and there is water pooling at the bottom, chances are the defrost drain is clogged. This should be a quick fix and it is very easy for you to take a look at yourself as well. You are going to want to fix this problem as soon as possible to avoid your food from spoiling.

Your drain hole may be clogged with debris. You can try cleaning the drain hole with a special stick for the job, or something like a cotton swab or straw.

There is also the possibility that the defrost drain is clogged with ice. To clear the drain of the ice, use a plumbing snake and push it as far into the drain hole as you can and move it up and down until the clog of ice has been cleared. After this, you should fill the drain with 1 teaspoon of baking soda and slowly pour in 2 cups of hot water. The drain should be able to work again.
