if it has ice/water in the unit,check the hoses going from the supply line at the inlet valve on the refrigerator rear section,if theres a hole in the tube,when the ice maker calls for water to fill the ice trays it will leak out this pin hole during the time the water supply valve is open and then shut off when the valve closes due to no pressure on the line then,thats probably the reason the puddles not always there

I will look for your service manual and tell you that first it's most likely a blockage in the defrost condensate line. There are many reasons for this happening for example water leaking from a water supply line for the dispenser or ice maker, a in the defrost pan,
water leaking and draining through the refrigerator cabinet, but most are caused by a defrost drain line blockage.
Below is a link that may be helpful so try to take it all in and use the parts that most refer to your specific problem, Thanks Sea Breeze

You have a plugged up defrost drain. There should be a drain hole way in back of the freezer, at the bottom. (it should be behind the panel at the back of the freezer compartment) Use a turkey baster with warm water to flush it out until water runs out the hole into the defrost drain pan under the refrigerator.

Leaks water


You likely have a plugged drain inside the bottom of the freezer. You may need a hair dryer to thaw it out, then clear it with a stiff wire. Otherwise your drain pan below may be cracked. Hope this helps!

Kenmore Trio water leak on front left side


We have the same problem for the second time in 2.5 years.

Six months (Dec 2005) after we bought the refrigerator, water was leaking from the door. Sears repair arrived and informed us it was the water tank leaking. Said it wa a known problem and was replaced at no charge (of course, we were also still under warranty - six (6) months out) --- FAST FORWARD 30 MONTHS (May 2008) --- SAME SYMPTOMS SAME DIAGNOSIS only NOW Sears wants to charge me $155 to fix the problem.

I'm gonna be calling and complaining about that!!!!!

Open your left door and look at the flat face under the bottom shelf (you'll see representative water drops). The water tank is behind this panel.
