Hello Simon Kaloussdian,

I dearly love refrigerators... if for nothing else... they sit
for decades working their hearts out... usually to never be given a second thought .

I'm looking at your 280 day old Daewoo top freezer
report... (only by researching your history)...
INFO: Country, features, history & model number?

So... no door service... water/ice service ELIMINATES
a lot of concerns... You are basically looking at
a DEFROST, drainage or air-leak problem...

From your previous issue...
you know the EVAPORATOR collects ice...
Your DEFROST circuit... routinely removes it...
Or should:
There are only 3 defrost elements:
- TIMER/Control (clock or Circuit board)
- Defrost thermostat (restrains EVAP heater)
- Defrost heater (warms.... only)

A clear drain to the DRAIN-PAN allows the moisture to be externally collected & removed (usually evaporative)...

ASSUMING all your door gaskets are good... you must have a blocked drain (I'm suspecting a clogged EVAPORATOR PAN).

Usually a dose of warm (only: not hot) soapy water
is enough to get the drain flushed out...

fit a soda straw (or flex tube) to the bottom of the
drain tube and blow up...

Working FANS and clean condensers are CRITICAL to satisfactory cooling.

FIND YOUR original parts list / owners manual
Comment me back if you want to discuss...
I'm here daily.

SOURCE: Water dispenser inside fridge and ice maker in freezer part in bottom both quit working.

There can be many reasons for no water supply. Line feeding the refrigerator is clogged or blocked. The water control valve that turns water to ice maker and dispenser is defective or the water filter located inside your refrigerator is in need of change. I will be here to help you go through the steps. Let me know when you are ready, Thanks, Sea Breeze

SOURCE: leaking water inside bottom of fridge, fridge not keeping a cold

Sounds to me you are having a ice blockage and or defrost problem. When that happens water can not get outside of the refrigerator. If you look inside the rear of freezer you may see a frost line or layer building on rear panel. You may just need to begin manual defrost until we can get a look at the evaporator coils and condensate collection tray. Unplug and begin and let me know your model number. I can help if you like, Sea Breeze

Water leaking out from inside and running out under the fridge. Do I need to clean out the outlet pipe and if so where would it be??

Check the drain tube that leads to the defrost pan under the fridge. The drain tube maybe plugged. Do you have water standing in the bottom of the fridge and if so that is probably the problem. However, something must be defrosting inside the fridge to create that much water. Be sure your fans are running inside the fridge.

I have water dripping down the back panel inside the fridge-it is constant. I wipe down the inside back wall, but hours later the water is back. The fridge appears to have a "channel" for this water

with out knowing name brand an model# i would say it sounds like there is a drain tube missing from the upper patr or freezwr area to the drain hole at the rear bottom . there is a drain pan under the refridge which catches this water then it evarperates. it also cab that the proper drain is pluged or blocked with algie which is comon try a little bleach to clean out the drain area

Fridge constantly dripping wet

water inside, too much condensation from humid air entering fridge from bad seals. replace the seals. could also be that the condensate drain is clogged. if it's leaking from the bottom of the fridge, make sure the tubing is still inside the condensate pan underneath the fridge.

Water buildup inside of refrigerator

It may be the fact that your evaporater pan is not working. The freezer and fridge have drains inside them. The water inside and condensation go down tube that you see on backside of your fridge. This tube goes into a drainpan in the bottom and than evaporates.
You should also check to make sure your fridge and freezer are cold enough.

Spilled milk inside the fridge ends in the catch tray

The pan is for holding the defrost water for it to evaporate. If the milk creates an odor, you can acces the pan by removing the front panel under the door (usually). The pan will probably come out so you can clean it.

Puddles of water in Fridge

the drain hole is blocked in the bottom of the fridge. if the water is not able to drain down the hole it will overflow into the fridge base. check any holes at the inside back of the fridge.
