Sounds like you had a dishonest service person come to your home. If the issue was water leaking and he replace a control board. The part he replace is very cheap about $56.00 and the reason to replace it would be if the refrigerator was not defrosting. I will return later with what to do. Sea Breeze

Whirlpool refrigerator is leaking cold water from the lower left hand corner.

Behind the refigerator are valves and water hoses going to the water dispensor and the ice maker. Anyone of these hose could have a leak either at the connection or the hose. I would not attempt at repairing this unless you are real familar with this problem or appliance repair man.

Water is leaking in the bottom of the freezer, also coils are freezing up with ice, this problem is causing water to leak onto the floor from the freezer

when the cold coil is freezing up this is caused by a failed defrost system ( a bad heater or terminator . or the aditive defrost control . it also will freez the drain in the back of the freezer and this will cause the water to end up on the floor . . i would defrost the frig and repl the terminator . the heate is usualy good . and if problem comes back then replace the a d c . // the a d c pt # 241508001 and the terminator 5303918214 . this is a very common problem .. mm hope this helped and thanks for using fix ya ..

Whirlpool refrigerator with freezer on top leaks water into refrigerator area. My appliance repair man said it is due to the discharge line freezing and is a common problem with that model. I need to...

The drain line that comes through the casing may be plugged or the trap at the bottom of the hose where it drains into the drain pan under the refrigerator may be plugged. If water is freezing it is because it is being held back by a restriction.

Water leaking inside of refrigerator from freezer

The defrost drain is frozen, you need to take the cover off inside the freezer and there will be a drain hole probably coverd with ice, you will need to pop most of the ice out first then I use a turkey baster and a tub of hot water. Squirt the hot water in the hole over and over again untill it drains. Then just wipe everything down. Problem solved.
