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.

Re: Water forming in fridge part of fridge/freezer
Check your gasket on the refrigeratordoor with a dollar bill. it should have resistance when pulled out from between the gasket and door. if not then replace the gasket. or the drain tube in the freezer compoartment is clogged up and not draining properly. good luck and contqact me if theres more to the problem ok.

HI, sounds like you have 2 problems. First of all, your drain pan in the freezer is clogged and will need to be cleaned out, second: this ice has caused an air flow restriction to the refer section. When you clear out all the ice, look for obstruction that you prevent clean air flow to the refer section. This should solve the problem.
You may have to remove all the food from the freezer, remove shelves and rear wall to clear all the ice. Failure to remove all the ice can prevent air from circulating from section to section. I would not suggest in using a hair dryer, too much heat in the wrong place can cause damage to the liner in the form of warping.
Turn off the unit while doing this de-icing, this will help greatly.
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.
Seems that you now have to little gas in the fridge.Somewhere on your apparatus there should be a factory tag where it should be info on amount of gas, prod date etc and also which type of gas to fill.
Other thing as fan not running properly,door gaskets leaking can lead to Ice build up.
High humidity and water all over inside fridge.Gas filling procedure.Make vacum(vacumpump)Fill in correct weight (grams or oz)of gas.Anyhow when you must fill gas there is usually a leak in your system and to find that i use liquid nitrogen.For this serviceman is the best option.
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.
you have a clogged evap. drain and if you want the probelm to go away you need to that the back panel off of the freezer, then use a hair dryer to melt all the visible ice then use boiling hot water to flush the evap. drain tube which is also clogged with ice . once water flows all the way throuh the pipes as if you have flush the tiolet you have then cleared your issue
hi , roger here i am a maintenance tech for an apartment complex that just happens to have whirlpool appliances. the way i see it is the most likely problem you have is a clogged drain. if you push the refrigerator out where you can access the back of it you will see a plastic hose that runs from about the middle of the fridge down to the bottom and then dumps into a pan that sits on the top of the compresser. the easiest thing to do is to remove the hose from the pan and blow hard through it or hook an air nozzle from a compresser and blow through it . it should take care of it. also try to avoid turning the fridge up on its max settings. hope this helps.
ok your defrost drain is frozen take the back panel off in the freezer section under the coils you will see a silver pan if its frozen it will be a block of ice you have to remove the ice then make sure the drain and tube are clear all the way to the pan at the bottom you should see the plastic tube on the back of the unit in the center over time algae can grow in the tube blocking it drying the unit will help but soon as it defrosts the tube fill up again and the problem reoccurs you kinda got to snake it out so to speak.the best way to deal with it is to go to lowes or home depot and get a eurka 302 enviro hand held steamer an investment but a great product to have around the house cost about 40 bucks but 1000s of uses
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
there are 2 possibilities. first the drain is blocked causing water to overflow from the defrost water gulley at the bottom rear of the inside of the fridge. this can form ice as it is close to the division between fridge and freezer. second, the .fault of ice growth can be caused by breakdown of the cabinet insulation. of the two, the first is the moree likely. to test drain is cloear, pour a little water down the drain. if it does'nt flow freely, push something flexible down the drain hole till blockage is clear
