Question about KitchenAid Refrigerators
The fridge drips water at the back. why? how can i stop this?
The back is pretty general. Can you be specific? IS there a hole under a cover the water is comming from? The drain line from the freezer may be the culprit. SOme times in a move in and out during cleaning, moving can cause the drain tube to come out of place. It is usually placed over a pan close to the compressor where the water gathers from defrost and then evaporates. Or a mouse may chew the drain line in two especially if its plastic/rubber.
Look for the cause. Is it comming out from the corners of the box? Is there anything visible inside or outside with water tracks on it?
If this helps you please rate me as high as you can and thanks for using fixya. If you dont find the cause post back with more information.

SOURCE: water drips into refrigerator
sounds to me that maybe your draain lin is clogged up in your freezer compartment above your refrigerator. Look for a clear tube that should be runnig down either on thre outside or on the back wall and clear it out after you make sure that its not frozen. if it is then use either a light bulb or hair dryer to thaw out. Thanks for using FixYa.

Hi, I can help you. The drain is plugged in the freezer section. Could I get the model #?
Some models need an after market drain heat strip added.
Please let me know and I can get you through tis.

Your refrigerator has a defrost drain blockage behind the evaporator in your your freezer compartment. Some models like yours have leak in the turns as the water leaves the freezer. I recommend that you unplug and remove the cover to the evaporator and check the defrost condensate tray below the evaporator. A wet vacuum cleaner and poring a solution with clorox in the drain will help you clean locate the leak and where the blockage may be downline.. I do have the manual on yours and can help you solve this. Some times this is a factory defect and I can help you solve the freezing drain problem. Let me know, Sea Breeze
