Water forming in fridge part of fridge/freezer

We often (weekly) have to clean out water from the fridge part of our fridge/freezer (fridge on top section). I can see ice drops forming on the inside back wall of the fridge. I take it that these melt as the wall temperature in the fridge rises above freezing.
We have the set-point in the fridge around 6 degrees C.

Pooling of water in fridge compartment of my Neff fridge/freezer


The defrost drain is clogged. Defrost drains usually get there clog right behind the back freezer panel. Remove this to get to the defrost drain and remove all built up ice and clear the drain and you should be fine. Hope this helps.

Water dripping from freezer onto top shelf of fridge with ice buildup back of freezer


the defroster isn't close enough to the drain to be effective. remove the back wall of the inside of the freezer, remove the excess ice. clear out the ice from the drain using hot water and a turkey baster. there is a kit from whirlpool that uses a piece of metal and a screw around the defrost rod, but I found out that a piece of 14 gauge solid core wire with the insulation stripped off works great too. stick the stripped wire into the drain, 2 to 3 inches, and wrap the rest around the defrost rod.

Water leaking from top to bottom


Refrigerators typically have vents for COLD freezer air to travel to the refrigerator side. Make sure you do not have these blocked with frozen foods, or ice. A good defrost of the freezer may be in order. (I just went through this one week ago).
If the cold air does not travel down to the fridge to keep it above dewpoint, moisture begins to form quickly.

Water inside fridge


the water is coming from the top portion of the refrigerator section. the insulation between the freezer and the refrigerator is getting wet that is why the coldness of the freezer is transferring to the refrigerator trough the insulation foam. you can see droplets of water forming underneath the refrigerator section. sometimes you can see ice forming underneath also.

Water always inside refrigerator sometimes ice forms


Sounds like you might have a condensation problem. Is the fan in your freezer working? If not it's not circulating the cold air. If it is you might have frost on the lower rear wall of your freezer meaning its not defrosting like it should and restricting your air flow. Last but not least you have a damper door in the upper left corner of your fridge that allows the cold air from your freezer into the fridge to cool it, that might not be opening up. Any one of these things would cause your water problem and a warm fridge section
