Behind the panel in the freezer there is a drain hole that is underneath the evaporator.  It is frozen over.  Take the back panel off and get all of the ice out and run hot water down the drain until it is clear.  When the unit goes into defrost some of that ice melts and drips down thru the vent into the fridge section.

Water collecting under bottom draws inside frig


That water is very likely dripping from the freezer because the drain for the defrost is blocked,so instead of the water draining its dripping through the vents down under the crispers. This tip i wrote will help ya to clear that drain to keep the water from dripping through the vents.

My fridge model CTF2123AR leaks water under bottom pull drawer. this pools water on the floor

Water found under the tray is due to excess defrost specially when the fridge is set to a lower temperature due to heavy frosting.
So during defrosting the excess water flows into the tray and overflows out which incidently has flooded on the floor.
What could be done is to drain off the tank, fully defrost the fridge by shutting down for few hours and then setting the fridge/freezer to a normal temperature.

Water comes off somewhere in the bottom of my fridge. what could have caused it?

When your refrig goes into defrost , the water runs down the back of the refrig ( inside ) and out to the drip pan thru a drain hole under the crispers . If water is under the crispers , remove the crispers and you should see a " cap " covering the drain hole . Sometimes crud will cover the slots where the water is supposed to drain , causing water to pool under the crispers . Just remove this cap , clean , and reinstall .

I have a Magic Chef refrigerator and water is dropping into the vegetables section at the bottom of the fridge. What could be the cause? Thanks a lot!

There are only two reasons. 1. Water hose may be worn our or dust blocked. 2. Bottom tray of the freezer may be cracked.

A stream of water leaks out of the bottom of the fridge at night.

Why does my magic chef refrigerator leak water on the floor

Could many problems causing this. From were is the leak, below the doors, that means the door seal is going bad, from under the fridge, it can mean the drip pan is full of dirt and muck. Pull her away from the wall and check the drip pan, some you can get to from the front some from the back. Under here is where all the stuff collects to muck things up. Get a Vac and clean her up, pull out the pan wash it off outside put it all back together, forget it about.
