The most likely reason is the defrost water catchment tray under the refrigerator, which evaporates with the help of the refrigerant line from the compressor, has become dislodged so the pipe is not sitting in the water.
If the fridge is working its not going to be oil as the only oil available is sealed in the pipe work with the refrigerant.

Why does oil leak at the bottom of the Gibson refrigerator door


Hello Susan;


My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You do not have any oil in your system with the exception of a few ounces in the bottom of your compressor. This is not your problem.

You have a water leak. The water will run across the bottom coils and the floor. By the time it reaches the front of your unit it looks oily.

Pull you unit out. Make sure you raise the leveling screws in the front first.
Remove the lower back cover. There are a few screws holing it on.

1.) Inspect the drain pan. Is it leaking?

2.) Inspect the water shut off valve. Is it leaking.

3.) Inspect the plastic tubing to your water filter, ice maker and water dispenser. Plastic tubing will dry rot and crack over time due to the heat.

4.) Have someone press your water dispenser while you observe for leaks in the back.

I have a very small dribble of water leaking from the bottom of the control panel on the freezer door. Is there a simple fix or do I need a technician? Unit is a SRS615DP.


Maybe and maybe not.
Page 9 of the user manual mentions a anti sweat heater that you can turn on or off.
Samsung SRS579NP User Manual Ice cold Water Dispenser

It maybe that the water line to the water dispenser is leaking
I am including a link to youtube videos about refrigerator water leaks but there is little about Samsung. Hopefully turning on the heater will solve your problem. At least one of the videos shows how to replace the tubing in a different brand of refrigerator.

Water leaking out bottom of refrig/freezer


Sounds like maybe two things. Your freezer isn't closing correctly and condensation is forming, bad seal maybe. Other option is you need to clean the pan on the bottom of the fridge. Condensation gathers there and it is normal, but if you alot of crud down there it will cause water to gather. Hope this helps...
