    Hi Joan Lloyd, we want to help you with your question, but we need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box?
    Fridge will have a pipe that water drains from freezer to some sort of evaporator tray at bottom of fridge. If it is blocked the defrost cycle is melting frost that does not drain away and then the fridge will leak every defrost cycle.
    Look for a drain pipe
    or help us to help you by providing make and model number of fridge and maybe one of us can find more information on where this drain pipe might exist in your fridge .

Mine had an issue with the drain from the freezer section. When it went into a defrost, the condensate water would miss the drain and fill the frig then onto the floor. The other issue can be the condensate pan that collects the water may be overflowing for some reason. Look for that as that could be the simplest fix to start with.

SOURCE: Why is or fridge leaking

I've seen this occur when the refrigerator door is getting closed fully Either a food item is preventing complete closure, (though it may look closed) or a seal is failing. Check the seals by pulling a dollar bill out from in between the seals. If it doesn't catch make sure the seals around the doors are ingood shape and clean.You can also use a heat gun to warm -up the seal and get to expand so you get a good suction

SOURCE: my fridge freezer leaks water every two to three days any ideas why?

Actually, on most Frost Free refrigerators (which are most refrigerators manufactured in the last 25 years) there should be a small "pan" underneath that "collects" condensate. This is a normal process as, every so many hours, a small heater comes on inside the freezer to "melt away" any of the accumulated frost. This frost melts and runs down a tube and then is collected underneath the refrigerator. The external fan underneath the refrigerator causes the condensate to eventually evaporate into the room air. You might be, either in a very humid environment and it can't evaporate fast enough, or more likely that you have a missing pan to collect the condensate. If it is missing, you might get lucky with finding a small "cookie sheet" that might fit underneath. Be careful though. You don't want to touch, AT ALL, any of the coils (looks like radiator screens) underneath, or the fan blades. Best bet if you are missing the condensate pan is probably to get your model number and search for parts at a local appliance parts store or online.
