SOURCE: water leaking from underneath fridge

If you have a ice maker inside your freezer, check where the water connects to the back. I think you will find a leaking connection. Tighten connection to fix the leak.

I have ice forming on copper line near compressor and there is a oily greasy substance on the compressor. What might be the problem?

the greasy dust is from a gas leak in the system and the oil is coming out with the gas
the ice forming on the pipe is the internal evaporation of the liquid gas
I suggest that a technician be called to repair the system

Stench from back of fridge

Sounds like a regrigerant leak. Have it checked by an appliance tech.

Bosch fridge freezer: Oil substance- like corn oil/ olive oil - puddle of this appearing on floor under freezer section. cannot find any source for this. Is it likely to be a leak from the black tank unit...

The oil like substance could be coolant, but it could be something else. If the compressor has developed a leak you won't have that long before it goes, and you will notice the compressor getting hotter and hotter before it just totally locks up.
BUT are you sure that the oil like substance is coming from the compressor and not the coolant line? If it is the coolant line that can be repaired and the unit charged with coolant as long as the compressor hasn't locked up due to low coolant. SO I would attempt to localize the leak the best you can.

I think my cooling unit is shot, but about the same time of my fridge going out I had what seemed like a water leak. It was in a closet no where near any water lines,but on the same side of the closet...

These RV fridges are filled with ammonia, sounds like your unit has a leak, You should remove your fridge and possibly get it repaired , refilled and tested, or find a used one, These units are a few $$$$.

Something leaking from the vent inside the top of the refridgerator. It is a sticky substance with an orange color. Is it freon?

No, it sounds possibly like the glue that was used to seal the back of the fridge is leaking out. Maybe a defect, if your fridge is still under warranty, I'd call the seller to ask about what can be done from there. Freon is a gas.

My Regal breadmaker has begun to release a black greasy substance into my bread dough. Do I need to replace the pan?

The black substance is lubrication oil. The oil lubricates the bearing and shaft that the paddle spins on. Usually this bearing is sealed, but black greasy substance means that the seal is broken and is leaking. Just a matter of time until it fails all together. Time to replace.
