SOURCE: The back part of the refridgerator inside where the cold air comes out is leaking water and the back inside wall is wet?

You should fine a drain line just below the freezer level in the back. The drain line is more than likely plugged. Check the loop seal down by the drain pan under the back of the refrigerator. It may be restricted at that point. It may require a complete defrost of the freezer to clear the ice formed in the drain from a back-up.

the drain hole at the bottom rear is blocked. a pipe cleaner run down it should clear it out.

It sounds like the line you found is for draining the water from the defrost cycle. It should drain the water from melting the ice into the pan at the bottom so it will evaporate. Sounds like its being clogged is the cause of the water in your fridge.

SOURCE: leak inside and outside

Most times this is because the drain from the defrost is blocked as it goes down to the pan under the refrigerator. I am placing a link that can help you solve this problem. sometimes on different models the cause may be in a different place so let me know what you find. Thanks, Sea Breeze

There is ice buildup in the drain and maybe under the seperator. Remove the back panel in the freezer and the botom floor of the freezer and remove the ice. Be careful of the styrofoam ducts. Eric

My frigidaire automatic defrost upright freezer gets ice build-up at the top right at the front any suuggestions


This is just a general answer but it may mean that the door seal is leaking. Try running a dollar bill under the seal to see if that area is looser than the rest of the door seal.
Look inside the freezer for model number.

Drain pan filling up. I emptied the pan and about 24 hours later its full again. We have ice and water in the door the freezer is cold just pan filling


If your evaporator fan is working properly the water would evaporate back into your home or business. If the evaporator fan was not working the freezer would not freeze and fresh food would spoil. That is way too much normal condensate unless there is a leak around the door seal or leak in the cool water supply tank storage or filter area. Not knowing the model number I would think you may have a drain opening under the crisper drawer that leads to pan. And think it may be a good idea to turn water supply off until sure of the source.

WATER RUNNING OUT FROM UNDER REFRIGERATOR


If the floor of the freezer is full of ice, your defrost water drain tube is clogged. Remove the ice in the freezer bottom, find the top of the drain tube inside the freezer near the top of the ramped up area, about the size of your index finger and blast hot water through it with a turkey baster. About 4 cups of good hot water but not boiling

Whirlpool has water drip inside fridge


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
