Question about Refrigerators
OK usally this indicates that either your defrost drain leading down from the freezer has a blockage of ice, gunk or both. Unplug refrigerator and remove the rear panel inside freezer and on the back wall of many refrigerators.
I noticed you did not post your model number so I have to assume your freezer is on top above the fresh food section? If the water is trickling down the wall inside the fresh food compartment it is possible you have a small bowl that catches the water coming from the freezer and the drain line then turns and leads out of the fresh food section and down the back of your refrigerator. If yours does have that catch bowl this is the likely place for the drain line to get clogged. Here is an example Click here=> Whirlpool Leak Photo taken by TechnicianBrianAnd in this photo are several parts listed in photo group #1 were it is most likely running down the wall=> MagicChef CTB1921AR fresh food section. If you still have questions please ask and rate me if I was able to explain this well enough. Every refrigerator is made different so these are examples only. We need to see if the water is overflowing the condensate drain tray or if the blockage is in the turn the drain leads down back of your refrigerator. Much more on this page=> Leaking Refrigerators! This is a common tip so I will be placing this post and add as we go new ideas listed in Sea Breeze Tips Section. If you run into any problems along the way of repair please let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze
