Question about Refrigerators
Maam, when you say that you noticed water leaking on the floor, where exactly was the water? On floor in front of fridge? Or elsewhere? In some refridgerators the defrost water is intentionally directed down the back of the unit, where it then flows to the bottom of the fridge and out to a small drain that is usually located under one of the drawers in the refridgerator compartment. If the drain becomes clogged or blocked, the water backs up.
Some refridgerators also have door frame heaters that evaporate any condensation on the cabinet frame. If your refridgerator is equipped with a dial that says "energy saver" mode or something similar, while running in that mode, the door heaters are disabled. If that would be the case, you can turn the dial to the opposite setting and wait 24 hours to see if the condensation problem clears up.
The ice making/dispensing mechanisms are very complex. Aside from the problems of a leaky supply line or a stuck ice cube, most components are not user serviceable and a qualified appliance repair technician should make any repairs to this unit.
Sure hope this helped you, sorry for your problem, and best wishes.
