Presuming that this is a self defrosting unit, the probability is that the condensation water from the fridge section is not being disposed of as it should. Most fridges have a little hole in the back rear of the refrigeration compartment. When the unit defrosts, the water runs down the back inside, into a little gully and through the hole. At the back of the fridge (Yep, you're gonna have to drag it out and look at the back) a pipe leads down from the hole to a little tray over the compressor pump. The compressor gets hot when it is running and the water in the tray simply evaporates from the tray because it is over a heat source. My guess would be that the pipe has moved and the water is no longer dripping into the tray, or something has dislodged the tray so water is leaking from it because it's not flat, or something fell in the tray, and took up some room, so it gets more water than it can take before it all evaporates. The water then runs across the floor and out the front of the fridge

Take a look arouns the back and see what is going on there, the solution should, I hope, be fairly clear.

I am experiencing water in the floor in front only, where could it be coming from?


Is this water or engine coolant? If it's water then the Air conditioning condensate drain may be plugged. Water can also enter if the body sealant has dried out where the firewall meets the body at the A post. If it's engine coolant then the heater core is leaking into the air box.

most common problem is the a/c condensor tube is clogged and is under the car and needs to be cleared with compressed air. also the sunroof track has 4 drain tubes and the right front may be clogged or leaking. you can check that by pouring a cup of water down the right front drain tube in the sunroof track and see if water comes out by the right front wheel

Water on floor under front of fridge


CHECK AT THE BACK OF YOUR FRIDGE IF THE DRAIN PIPE IS STILL ON THE COMPRESSOR. ON TOP OF THE COMPRESSOR THERE IS A BUCKET WHERE THE WATER FROM THE DRAIN PIPE RUNS IN. THE HEAT OF THE COMPRESSOR CAUSES THE WATER TO EVAPORATE.
