Question about Refrigerators
WAter is leaking from the bottom of the freezer door. Should I take the door apart to look for the leak?
You might take the door apart but try seeing where the water comes from first by drying inside the fridge and really having a close monitoring.
I doubt if it's coming out from the door panel. Except the door does not close well and water drips from the items in the fridge due to loosing tightness.

SOURCE: Freezer leaking water
The drain is plugged just below the coils in the back of the freezer. My fridge had the same problem and I found the hose (which can be accessed from the rear bottom) was plugged with mold. Also, i noticed the hose was connected to the water holding pan and was too close to the bottom and easy to plug. I removed it from the connector and just let it dangle in the holding pan.

try checking the tube that water drains out , it could be plugged with crumbs or old partials of food and causing the problem, This has happened with my fridge at one time , affecting the defrost cycle of the freezer and dripping water out of the door, The tube was located under the crisper in the back of the inside of my fridge, Hope this solves your problem

you have a clogged drain, it is either clogged with ice or some kind of debris, thaw the freezer out and push a length of weed trimmer line down the drain. The drain is accessible by removing the back wall of the inside of the freezer. If there is no clog then the drain may be freezing up, if that is the case, take a piece of 14 gauge romex wire and loop it several times around the heating element at the bottom of the evaporator and push a few inches of it into the drain, this will get hot and transfer heat when it goes into a defrost cycle which is where the water is coming from in the first place

If you remove the back cover off the unit, you will see the compressor with an evaporator tray, make sure the little drain hose isn't plugged and that there is water in the evap tray from drain hose.
