Common issue.....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

### What is the perimeter of a 1 x 3 rectangle?

Rectangle has two pairs of equal sides.
L=length=3 units
w=width =1 unit
Perimeter = sum of the measures of all sides.
2 sides with measure L: sum of lengths=2*L
2 sides with measure w: sum of widths=2*w
Perimeter = 2L+2w=2(L+w)=2(1+3)=8 units.

### There is layer of ice that has formed at the bottom of the freezer side. Due to this there is a leak of water that appears every two or three days. I cleaned the layer of ice once and after 2 or 3 weeks...

Sounds like the drainage hole is blocked with ice, i normally take the back cover off the freezer and at the bottom you will see a build up of ice at the bottom, turn freezer off and carefully remove as much ice as you can, then pour some boiling water over the excess ice and in the middle you will see a drain hole make sure water then freely flows down drain hole. Other than that you could try switching your freezer off for 24 hours to clear ice.

### Water in freezer bottom and water leaking out from

Clean the drain pan and drain line in the back of the freezer section underneath the evaporator coil. Make sure water drains when you pour it in. If it doesn't - also clean drain tube on the back of the unit behind the cover. When done - put the tube exactly where it was.
Good luck! :)

### Water leaks from bottom of freezer side even though the water is turned off. Also makes a humming noise prior to leak. Leaks about every 3 days.

Clean the drain pan and drain line in the back of the freezer section underneath the evaporator coil. (hint: use turkey baster with hot water) Make sure water drains when you pour it in. If it doesn't - also clean drain tube on the back of the unit behind the cover. When done - make sure to put the tube exactly where it was.
Good luck! :)

Your problem is most likely a clogged drain line. Which is located in the back bottom of the freezer a little hole. Run some hot water down it with a spray bottom and it should resolve your issue. Also yes a Tech will be able to fix this problem

### Leak running down front

Take the recess cup out and seal the area around it right where the front stainless steel panel meets the recess (right at the front of the recess) with clear silicone to prevent water from getting inside the door, then running out of the plastic frame area around the dispenser and running down the freezer door or out the bottom of the door. After the silicone has set, replace drip cup.
