Question about Refrigerators
The pan under the refrigerator is overflowing. Either too much condensation water is being produced or it is not evaporating quickly enough. Which could it be. At least a whole quart of water is being produced per 12 hour period.
One thing you should check first is to make sure the condenser fan is running. the fan is usually next to the drip pan at the back of the unit. make sur your condenser is clean and that air movement isn't blocked due to a dirty or clogged condenser which result in very little hot air is circulating around the drip pan to evaporate the water. if you have an icemaker and water dispenser check to see that theconnections located very close to the drip pan. other than that i don't know of anything else that could make(or leave ) that much water in the drip pan

I had the same problem. The problem was the drain tube from inside the freezer to the drain pan was partially plugged so ice was building up inside, then when the freezer went thru its defrost cycle large amounts of ice were melting. I fixed it by removing valve in the end of the drain hose, all ice inside freezer and ice in drain hose (pour hot tap water thru it).
Hopefully this helps.
