Refigerator leaked water slightly then stoped cooling

Last night the refrigerator (5 yrs old) started leaking water berry lightly,
then it stoped cooling. the motor from the condensor is still running along with the freezer motor and also the compresor is running without stoping.
lights work too. there is some frost in the back panel of the freezer
even after 24hrs of none cooling by the refrirerator.
can it possibly be the defrost timer being stuck?

Yes try to turn with a screw driver if possible. If it start working replace timer. If not it can be low on freon you would see frosting but no cooling.

Water leaks into the refigerator compartment. The refigerator is about 15-20 yrs old.

The drain in the freezer behind back lower panel
needs opening. You can see it at the bottom of the back panel
underneath the evaporator coils. (The cold coils)
Run Hot water in the drain until it clears or use a hairdryer.
When the defrost melts the water it goes down the drain
If the drain is clogged with Ice or ? The defrost water
overflows into the ref. or freezer or on floor
Run Hot water in the drain until it clears or use a hairdryer.
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath

Firstly put off the refrigerator before the compressor burns off.

Hello it sounds like you have a leaking water hose which you need to find. maybe check first where it connects into the back of the unit.. Otherwise the fridge has a blocked drain in the freezer. cheers

Refigerator leaked oil after moving and storage

no if there was oil leaking out then that means the refrigerant has leaked all out. you will have to have it repaired by a service tech.

Fridge stopped working suddenly

Sounds like the relay (start device) on the compressor has failed.  This is a very common problem especially for models that are 3-5 yrs old.  I would replace that first.
