Why is water dripping from inside the fridge around the rear light section?

In some Refrigerators there is tray below the freezer section and there is a small hole in the tray. Water dripping from the tray enters a hole below in the back and goes out to a chamber.
If the hole is covered with dirt or if you place something in the line between these holes, water will drip and collect in the bottom of the refrigerator.

My fridge did not reset itself after a power outage over Christmas so I came home to a fridge of spoiled meat. I have cleaned everything but I am wondering if there is a drip pan or something that I need...

The evaporator tray is inside the bottom "kickplate". It is formed of flimsy plastic and must be lifted out carefully to avoid dumping contents. Dump it in the sink for subsequent scrubbing clean. Also, check the drainage tube in the bottom rear of the freezer compartment for clogging. It will have to be reamed (with a chopstick) and flushed to remove residue. Be sure to have the plastic tray back in place to catch drainage from the flushing operation and repeat the tray cleaning operation.
One final thing: Put an open box of bicarbonate of soda inside the refrigerator section to absorb residual odor. Good luck!

Water on floor and under the frigerTOR

Presuming that this is a self defrosting unit, the probability is that the condensation water from the fridge section is not being disposed of as it should. Most fridges have a little hole in the back rear of the refrigeration compartment. When the unit defrosts, the water runs down the back inside, into a little gully and through the hole. At the back of the fridge (Yep, you're gonna have to drag it out and look at the back) a pipe leads down from the hole to a little tray over the compressor pump. The compressor gets hot when it is running and the water in the tray simply evaporates from the tray because it is over a heat source. My guess would be that the pipe has moved and the water is no longer dripping into the tray, or something has dislodged the tray so water is leaking from it because it's not flat, or something fell in the tray, and took up some room, so it gets more water than it can take before it all evaporates. The water then runs across the floor and out the front of the fridge

Take a look arouns the back and see what is going on there, the solution should, I hope, be fairly clear.

Ice tray sometimes stuck when dumping off ice

Your icemaker tray has an update for the water flowing over the tray.  You will need to call a qualified LG technician to get it replaced.  Also, the tray is twisted because it binds itself against the hinge pin on the left side.  To stop this, spray some cooking spray oil in the left hinge pin and it should unbind itself and return to normal.

Fan blows out a smell from underneath fridge could it be leaking gas.

I have the same problem with the odor. I took the back off and discovered the drip pan was full of stagnant dirty water. This place is bacteria heaven. The problem I have now is that i cant seem to find a way to remove the pan without taking the motor out and everything. Any suggestions?
