Most of the time that problem is caused by your drain hole in the freezer being blocked up with food or trash....or sometimes ice. Every 8, 10, or 12 hours depending on your defrost timer you fridge will defrost itself and drain the water under the fridge to a pan. If that drain is plugged then the water runs into the bottom of the freezer and sometimes will leak out onto the floor of your house. Another thing that it could be is the icemaker. Make sure the icemaker is not spilling water all over. If your icemaker is working ok, and there is not icecicles all over then rule out the icemaker. I would bet it's your drain.

I have a side by side Kenmore refrigerator model #363-9562510. Water leaks from the bottom right corner of the freezer door from a small round cut out hole. This is the door that has the ice and water...


couple of things to check if you have a dispenser on this model there is a hose that goes up into the bottom of the freezer door you need to remove bottom kick plate and take a look at this...also if no water from that hose and its actually coming from the door you could have a ruptured line in the door itself.... next make sure the water is not actually coming from the freezer compartment as the drain in the freezer could be clooged and leaking over on defrost mode and out door...
hope this helps good luck...

My freezer is leaking inside the freezer area. I took off the panel on the inside and can see that it is leaking by the top of the coils. The water then freezes at the bottom of the freezer. Again all this...


This water comes from the defrost cycle. The drain hole is probably plugged with food. The drain usually goes to a small pan under the condenser where it eventually evaporates. Look for a hole or slot in the bottom of the unit.
