Usually any defrost water sits in a plastic pan and evaporates away in normal operation. If the pan becomes brittle it cracks and leaks water. Pull the fridge out and look on top of the black pot (compressor) Is there a plastic drain pan sat on top of it? Sometimes if the fridge is working hard a lump of ice can form on the pipework going back to the compressor which melts causing some water at the front of the fridge. Lastly, the insulation under the fridge may have broken down, allowing condensation to form and drip. If the drain was blocked, the water would be inside the fridge, not underneath.
Under your fridge you have a pan that will catch condensation created. This pan usually has a sponge or a device to obsorb the condensation as well as this pan must stay cleaned. Second item to look at is if you have an icemaker you could possibly have a leaking line. Or to go back to your tray, be sure it is in the possition it is suppose to be in.
The drain tray is under the fridge often times set back a little bit. Remove the kick plate by pulling from one side then the other side, strait forward till it pops off. The kick plate is a plate as close to the floor as you can get on the front side of the fridge going the entire width of the bottom of the fridge. Now get eye level with the underneath of the fridge. Center your view on the underneath of the fridge. The drain tray is right there. Pull it out, carefully as it is probably full of water, and dump the water out of it. Replace the drain tray and then replace the kick plate. Check the drain pan once a week or so and you should have no more water leaking on your floor. Hope this helps.
Move the refrigerator out from the wall and look for the location of the leak.
Step 2 Check the side panels and the seals around the door for beads of "sweat." This could indicate a condensation problem.
Step 3 Check the floor. A puddle there could indicate a missing or cracked drip pan, or a leak in the water line that feeds your ice maker.
Step 4 Check for water seeping from the front of the freezer or the refrigerator. This could indicate your defrost drain is plugged or your ice maker is leaking.
Fixing a condensation problem Step 1 Check that the doors shut correctly. Hold each door about halfway open, then let go. If the doors don't shut completely, adjust the screw legs on the front of the refrigerator so the unit tilts back a bit. With adjustable pliers, turn each leg one revolution clockwise. Recheck the doors and, if necessary, repeat the process until they shut securely.
Step 2 Inspect the door gaskets. Look for debris that may keep the doors from shutting. Also check for cracks or gaps in the gaskets that could allow the cold air to seep out. If you find debris, clean the gaskets with warm, soapy water. If you find cracks or gaps, you'll need to replace the gaskets (see How to Fix a Refrigerator That Cools Poorly).
Step 3 If your refrigerator is equipped with a door-frame heater that evaporates condensation, make sure the heater is turned on. The switch should be located with your other refrigerator controls
There is a condensor tray located underneath. It catches water and then the water evporates. Sometimes the tube gets plugged and causes a mess. Check the tube and the condensation tray. You can access the tray by just taking off the grille under the door on the front of the refrigerator.
check to make sure that the condensation pan is in its correct position,, somtimes when the unit is moved up steps it causes the pan to sit in there cocked or unlevel and will drain out excessively. or it may be a crack on the fill valve solinod where the water line connects to the fridge.. there will be a blue plasitc cover right where the water line connects to the frig and somtimes they crack and will only leak when the ice maker calls for water... pull out the frig and empty the ice tray and when you here it start to fill up the icemaker check around that solinoed be sure to use a bright flash light because sometimes the leak will be a little stream of water that is really hard to see sometimes you can only feel it with your fingers...I hope this helps......
There is a tray that is in the bottom, remove the cover thats located just under the doors in front. You will see it most of time black in color and it will be easy to pull out be careful for it will be full. Its from condensation most the time in the summer this happens really no problem. if thats not it check the ice maker water supply line that could be it also.
hi. thanks for the question .pull fridge away from the wall. remove back panel, clean all coils. look for leak. the tray is suppose to evaporate, from the heat from coils ,and compressor .so it has to evaporate .thanks the appliance doc
