Question about Refrigerators
Fridge working normally until water started to drip from a vent at the top front
underside of the fridge compartment...no other signs of fault and the unit
apears to be doing what it should be.........help solve .....thanks
Sounds like a drain clog in the freezer compartment above. remove the freezer rear panel and totally defrost the evaporator area, directly under the evap you see( under all taht ice) a small drain hole that has become frozen over, try defrosting with either a hair dryer( not a heat gun too much heat youl melt everything) or by pouring hot water donw the drain until you get a free flow of water down the tube. after its clear reassemble and you should be fine

Remove rubber elbow inside top left of fridge and check water drains from here to tank at back of unit. If clear, ice is clogging drain under freezer to elbow which is most common problem. Carefully remove the evaporation slots cover. This has 4 large clips on long slot side and 8 small clips on square hole side. Start at middle and squeeze and lift from small clip side until it pops. Continue each way until removed. Time is required to allow defrosting between this point and rubber elbow. Fans, warm water and other gentle assistance will help but this could take 5hours or more, When water flows from front to elbow, reassemble, restart and restock.
