Question about Samsung RS2534 Side by Side Refrigerator
I have a Samsung fridge with water leaking intermitently from the bottom the fridge. The water line is not connected so i am not sure where the water is coming from. THe leak is not constant it only happens once in a while.
I would not be too alarmed about this. Most refrigeration systems will
drip water off of the condenser coils while in use. This can most often
be seen by cars that appear to "leak" only when the a/c is on. All that
this "leakage"is is condensation. This is the same reason that window air conditioners need to have a slight downward tilt to the outside. This is also why they unfortunately, often freeze up.
If you're only noticing leakage while the refrigerator is running then I would bet even money that this is what's happening especially if the refrigerator is still staying cold. Most normally this condensation is caught in a drip pan which lets the water evaporate. However, during periods of extended use, especially with periods of high humidity i.e. the summer, sometimes the condensation is higher than what the drip pan can hold and you get leakage over the sides.
Unfortunately while this is a relatively minor problem about the only way you are going to eliminate this is to install a dehumidifier in your home, or simply tolerate it for a month or so during the summer. I would bet dollars to peso's that after mid august this won't be a problem.
One thing to note however, is that if you start to see that it is running constantly, or if you notice that it's not keeping cool, then it may be time to call in a service person. But for your particular problem I don't think that will be necessary.
Actually a pretty common concern... second time in two hours I've seen it. :D

1) Remove the 3 drawers.
2) Remove the drawer covers/lids.
3) Remove the 2 screws holding the water
bottle (let the bottle hang).
4) Remove the 7 screws holding the lower
back panel in place (the top 2 and top
center screw are hidden)
5) Remove the panel.
6) Take a heat gun and flat blade screw
driver to the frozen area under the
7) Assemble everything back together.

It's not a condensation problem. I have the same issue with mine. Pull your 3 drawers out and you'll see that the water is dripping out from behind the panel on the back (directly behind the water storage bladder). Remove the two screws that secure the water bladder. You'll also see two screws at the bottom of the wall panel..remove those. There are two more screws up higher (recessed in hole) left and right side of panel. Remove those as well. That's as far as I am right now as we speak. I'm having problems removing the back panel...probably being just overly cautious with it. There is no other way into the inner workings of the fridge. You can't access anythign from the back of the fridge except the compressor and misc electrical. I'll post again when I get past this part.
