This is a condensation issue.

Please check the seal for the refrigerator that it is making contact all the way around and that it is free of debris.

A good way to check is put a flashlight in it at night - and turn off the lights and shut the door.

If you can see light - that is where the air is coming in, and keeping the humidity level high in the box.

Alternately - the condensate drip tube may be clogged... and now overflowing.
Check your owners manual for your particular model to see how to clean the tube.

Thanks for using FixYa!!

The cold control needs replacing. Thats the knob with the numbers that turn the Ref OFF and ON.
What I do is call my local Appliance Parts Store with my model no. They are extremely helpful .
Get freezer and ref thermometer. Ref is probably too cold.
Freezer should be 0 to 10 degrees. Ref 33 to 35

Have a Whirlpool refrigerator/top freezer model ET1CHMXKT06. Water from freezer drips into refrigerator. How do I stop this?


Check drain in the freezer which probably runs through the Ref. Pour water in Drain in back of
freezer and see if it drains. some may be getting inside ref.

Water is dripping from the top of refrig from what appears to be a control unit of some type.. The freezer and icemaker work.


If the water is dripping into the ref. from the freezser chances are you have a clogged drain where the water runs out of when the machine goes into defrost. Take everything out of the freezer and look at the back of the machine and see if you have ice built up. The vents that ru from the freezer to the ref. are loacted in the middle and chances are ice has gotten into them and is thawing and running into the fridge. Unplug the machine, take the back freezer wall off and clear the ice away. I use a screwdriver to tap into the drain hole to clear the ice but you can use hot water as well. Once you see water draining properly down the hole, put it back together and your good to go.

Fog and dew dripping in ref


It may be high humidity of the air outside of the refrigerator or you are storing highly humid things inside along with the settings of the fridge.

Water is leaking into the refrigerator.


most likely the defrost drain in the freezer is frozen shut. take out the back wall of the freezer and check under the evaporator. if its a whirlpool built kenmore you may find a sheet of ice on the floor of the freezer under the plastic floor/tray. if this is the case, remove ice, thaw drain with a turkey baster and hot water. wrap a piece of thicker copper wire (pencil lead size approx), around the defrost heater and push into drain about 2-3 inches, making sure it doesn't touch the sides of the drain, this will keep the drain from freezing shut. if its a frigidaire built remove the control from the inside of the ref and silicone around the opening where the water drains from the freezer into the drain cup that is built into the back of the control panel. that will keep the water from running along the ceiling of the ref and dripping. hope this helps. if not put model number with problem.

WATER DRIPPING FROM TOP OF REFRIGS MAIN COMPARTMENT


The drain is clogged.

This water should be going down the drain to a pan under the ref.

The drain starts under the cooling coils in the freezer but can be clogged anywhere. Some models will have access in the main ref in the top - rear, a small cover can be removed. Some will have access on the back of the ref. you can see the drain tube and an elbow where it come out of the ref. remove the elbow and check for clogs.
