Re: water leaking in refrigerator on shelves, drawers,...
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

Hi,have you got a drain at the back of the fridge just above the veg draw,if yes is there eney food above that that is tuching the back wall of the fridge above the veg tray,if so then the water that runs down the back wall will be going onto the food that it tuches and into the veg draw,hope this was some help,all the best.
could just be condensation,which is normall,have you put any uncovered/warm/food or salad/fresh fruit in lately,these all add to the"problem"there is no "fix "other than kitchen tissue under the salad /fruit drawers,and throw away once a week.fridges are not frost free.(condensation in freezer is frost)
You have a blocked defrost drain look at item 56
in this picture. you need to clear this drain either with hot water or clear ice that may have accumulated in the trough. to me it looks as if there is possibly a cover over this area so you will need to remove drawers and shelves to get to it.
message me back here with any comments or questions.. You can fix this yourself!! thanks Peyton
We took the back bottom vent cover off. Clean that area of lint. We than followed the advise given to another posting of a refrigerator link. This has seemed to work for now, time will tell. However we were told most people with Haier refrigerators have problems. Thank you.
This is a common problem with this refrigerator. I think it's a design problem. You have to access the drain from inside the freezer compartment by removing the slide-out shelf and then getting a hex screwdriver to remove the screws on the bottom cover. After removing the screws, you can access the drain which is in the very back in the middle of a metal "trough". It is very hard to access. If it's like mine, you will find a lot of ice on the floor of the freezer compartment. You have to remove the ice and then let the refrigerator sit for a little while until it starts to thaw in the back. I have used a hair dryer and hot water to help thaw it out, but it is a hassle. You can use something like a metal hanger to help clear the drain, but I can warn you, you are in for a long haul. Expect to spend several hours clearing the ice out. My solution? Don't buy a Kenmore.
Water build up under the fresh food drawers is usually associated with an air intrusion from the exterior. Warm air intruding into the fresh food compartment creates excess condensation, which eventually accumulates on the bottom.
Some causes are:
1. Internal obstruction, not allowing door(s) to close tightly enough.
2. Deteriorated door seal, (torn, pinched, deformed, misaligned,).
3. Light not turning off when door closed,(faulty door switch, misaligned door, loose hinges allowing door to drop).
Make sure all drawer have nothing obstructing their closure, and door shelves have nothing extending beyond the support bars.
Other less obvious causes may be creating this issue also and are not normally addressable by the novice servicer.
open the freezer compartment loo for ice build up on floor of frezer especally towards rear behind back panel. sounds like you have a clogged/frozen defrost drain tube. removing back panel of freezer will give you acess to drain trough, melt away the ice with a hair dryer, youll find a drain hole under there somwhere,pouring boiling water down the drain will clear it pretty quickly( i use a steam machine purchased from the infomercials)
