Fridge Leaking water from front right hand corner

My fridge is leaking water from front right hand side (as you look at it) - can feel small 'hole' underneath where water is dripping from but cant tell what I need to do to stop it? Would it be my defrost pipe inside (by salad boxes), or pipe at back? Only knew it was leaking as my laminate floor has lifted and buckled!

Re: Fridge Leaking water from front right hand corner

Most likely you're correct, the defrost cycle produces water that is supposed to be captured in a holding tray, pan, etc. If the pan is cracked it would leak out or if the drip tube (pipe) is not in place it would miss the pan. It may be easier to remove the contents of the small frige and tip it over some to see what you can down there. I assume this small unit doesn't have any water souce to it (no ice maker or water). Check the tubing for damage and see if you can find the holding pan to inspect for crackes, etc.

Water leaks at bottom of fridge

The same thing happened to me then I noticed ice had formed at the bottom of our fridge. It was covering a drain hole so water was leaking out the front of fridge instead of going to the drain pan or wherever the hole goes. After I chipped out the ice and cleared the hole with warm water the leak stopped. I also fixed another leak coming from bottom of fridge caused by a loose brass connection on water line going to the door.

Leaking and fan stops then starts?

Don't know if this will help but our fridge was leaking and then I noticed there was ice at the bottom and it was clogging a drain hole so the water ran out on the floor in front of the fridge. I chipped out the ice, melted the drain hole and slightly raised the fridge temp so the ice would not re-form on the bottom and it worked. - no idea about the fan.

I have a whirlpool 363L WRN38RWG6, the problem i am having is that the fridge leaks water from the vent inside the door on top of the fridge section, then the fridge freezes any thing put to the back of...

I could not find the model but i assume it is a side by side.The model # should be located in the fridge side on the upper right hand corner on the fridge wall.On the freezer side in the back there is a cover with vents covering the evaporator coils. Remove the shelves,the cover to expose the evaporator.If the evaporator is all iced up your defrost themostat may not be working.The defost thermostat is located on top of the coils,it is a little round unit with 2 wires going to it.To check you can uplug it and put a jumper wire in the plug in to see if the defroster starts up.Make sure the fan is also working.Also check the drain (little round hole in the bottem of the drain pan) below the coils.Just poor a little water down it.If it is pluged you can use a small round tube and push it through the drain.Hope this helps,if so give us a 4 thumbs up. THANKS

My fridge is leaking water inside of the main fridge compartment. It is coming from the top and I can see water dripping out of one the hole. There are two small one inch square holes near the back top...

The defrost drain hole is frozen over.
When your fridge goes into defrost mode the water has no where to go but inside the fridge,not down the drain hole.
Turn the fridge off for 24 hours and open the doors. Let it defrost naturally to clear it out.

Intermittant water leak front left hand side and ice build up on inside base of freezer compartment, but no evidence of water leaking out from door it seems to come from underneath the appliance.

Sounds like the drain hose from fridge unit to evaporator pan built on top of compressor is plugged. The drain holes are small and clog easily. I like to make the holes bigger. A pipe cleaner helps to clean the inside of the drain hose.
Make sure water is dripping onto evap tray.

Kenmore Fridge: 44103 side by side: I keep finding a

Hello, this sounds like you have a blockage in the drain tube, remove panel back/bottom of may see ice build up...melt ice with hair dryer/heat will see a pan below evaporator...melt ice in pan...dry water up in pan with paper you should see a hole in pan that leads to drain tube...pour some hot water in pan..wait a couple minutes..mop up water and repeat this step 2-3 times....once you have done this find some flexible curatain wire or electrical wire..poke down the hole until you see the water it is clear..put back panel back and you are good to go. The reason you see water in the fridge is because the water has been leaking into the freezer and down the vent into the fridge instead of running into the drain hole...Please feel free to comment again if you need any further assistance. Mike

Fridge Leaking water from front right hand corner

yes, get a pipe cleaner and put in to the hole to try and clear if not from the back you will find the pipe which will be clipped to a plastic tray on the compressor. unclip and blow up the pipe this will always clear the blockage.
