This is normal operation, every 8 to 10 hours the heater in your freezer section turns on to defrost ice and frost from evaporator coil, this melting water hitting the heater is what is making popping and hissing noises.

Water seems to drip down the upper back inside of the fridge, and freezes in droplets, and it also freezes any food pushed up against the back of the fridge.


Hi Ford:
Could you check the drain from the auto defrost?
There will be a rubber tube running down the outside back and it leads to an evap tray under the unit.
At the inside top (where the water seems to be coming from) there should be a funnel that catches the water from the auto defrost. If it is plugged or the drain tube is plugged, you will encounter the problem that you describ.
Hope this helps,
Cheers.

My kitchen aid refrigerator won't stop buzzing


If everything is cooling right, take the front grille off at the bottom of the fridge and move the plastic drip tray. It might be touching the motor or pipe, causing the noise.

Water leaking


the bottom tray/salad compartment will always get a fair amount of condensation because they are glossy plastic(bathroom paint is matt)the only "cure" is kitchen towel under the tray and remove once a week.as for the drain it is normally at the back and does collect a fair amount of "moss"in the tube,pour some clorine bleach down to clear any out.the design of the shelves directs the side/back condensation down the drain.

Water dripping within the fridge


Hi, The defrost drain behind the rear freezer panel is plugged. Remove the rear panel and clear the ice away from the drain. Then you will need to flush the drain hole with hot water to make sure it is open.
Some models require an after market drain heat kit.
Please get me your model # and I can look this up to let you know if you need that heat kit.

Thanks
Vic
