Freezer bottom, take out the drawer, There is a gutter in the back elevated with a hole towards left. Somewhere it said stick a chinese chopstick or smt that wouldn't damage insides but that did not work.
I did that for a second time after a week today (it leaked again) and immediately after I put 1 tea-spoon of baking soda and two cups of hot water through that hole, as per ge service site, pdf files 39-6296 p11? and 39-6401, which are users manuals. search with model no. like csh24gr ending with t or x both older models come up anyway.
Drawers brake esy, becareful. No pan back or front undersides for drain or evaporation. There is some schematics to how they engineerd the evaporation.hotptci

    The baking soda and 2 cups of water were recommended to be injected with a turkey-baster. Did not use it this time. Let's see what happens in a week or so.

Water is leaking out from the bottom of the freezer

Below the freezer coil is a drain trough. Sounds like it is frozen. Use a hair drier to melt it and poor baking soda with warm water down it.

On humid days water puddles in the bottom of the frig.

Sounds like the door is not closing properly so humid air is coming into the fridge OR door not closing properly and the humid air is condensing around the door so it is leaking the condensation OR

The water from the defrost cycle is not evaporating so it overflows from the evaporator pan above the compressor. You better call a service technician before getting some floor damage (Do not call A&E)

Clear the bottom of the freezor so you can get at the drain. then get a turkey baster and fill it with hot water. Insert it in the drain in the bottom and squeeze it cleaning the drain. Several applications will solve the problem, and do not forget the refrigerator side as well.

Hotpoint csx22bc 21.7 cu. ft. leaking water on freezer side

Look for obstruction at the drain tray for the freezer. Common to have plastic wrap sucked into that area.Or gunk in the drain line. Blow through line to insure the gunk is not an issue.

Clear Oil leak on Mitsi Mirage 1989

could the clear oil actually be water?. if it is leaking out in the area around or behind the passenger side front wheel on hot days, it is probably water from your A/C, system. it has an overflow or drainage pipe, as the process of cooling the air dehumidifies it and produces water. just a guess though
