Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators
Water is dripping from inside fridge top ceiling to the food storage compartment and causing a mess freezing everything.
Usually this is a Door seal problem or a blockage between the frig and freezer compartment. There is usually a Tube that allows water from the defrost cycle to drain down to the pan beneath your unit. If there is ice, food particles, etc blocking that will cause water to enter the frig causing the mess. Listen for a fan to be running inside the freezer....if you hear none, than this may be causing the ice buildup that melts when the unit goes into defrost. If you unplug the unit, take the back panel off inside your freezer you will see coils and the ice. Leave unit unplugged to defrost the freezer and drain tube.....It should work normally when you plug it back in. If not, then you have a defrost heater or thermostat, or control board problem that needs to be checked by a technician.
