a contant runing of water is most likely a leak in the ice maker supply hose , an intermitant drip of water is a drip pan thats full in bottom of fridge (closest to floor ) this water comes from the auto defrost cycle most times this water evaporates away , but as fridge gets older it makes more frost that needs melted hence more water ,sometimes it over comes the pan and runs to floor , a good flashlight and getting down to look underneath usually tells you source of leak
There is usually a condensation pan at the bottom of a fridge. This can fill with water and over flow, causing what is happening. Also, the ice maker could be causing the problem because the water connections can leak at the back where they connect to the house water system.
There can be 2 reasons for this ... the first is that the machine is causing condensation and is dripping on to the floor. Automatic defrosting fridge freezers do this but usually the quantity of water evaporates before any is on the floor.
If the Fridge / Freezer has an automatic Ice maker, or has a cold water supply, then I would suggest that there is a water leak to the system. In this case, find the water supply feed and turn it off to eliminate this as the source.
If this stops the leak, then either the supply is leaking or the problem is inside the fridge / freezer and you will need either a plumber or a repair man to fix the problem.
The shut off valve is part of your house. The fridge doesn't have one, so it's entirely up to whoever designed your plumbing. Could be in the wall behind the fridge, in the floor under the fridge, in the utility room downstairs, under the kitchen sink, really anywhere. I spend a lot of time hunting for them on service calls myself. They are all different, sadly. Good Luck!
CHECK AT THE BACK OF YOUR FRIDGE IF THE DRAIN PIPE IS STILL ON THE COMPRESSOR. ON TOP OF THE COMPRESSOR THERE IS A BUCKET WHERE THE WATER FROM THE DRAIN PIPE RUNS IN. THE HEAT OF THE COMPRESSOR CAUSES THE WATER TO EVAPORATE.
there are several things to check for. The condensing defrost tray under the fridge can crack or develop a hole and leak onto the floor. A door gasket not closing properly may cause sweating and leak onto the floor. Some fridge's have a humidity switch inside the fridge that should be turned on to prevent sweating on the center bar between the fridge and freezer section. If your fridge has developed a frost free failure problem, often the frost will travel down the suction line at the back of the fridge and drip water on the floor. The heat exchangertubing can separate and also sweat and drip on the floor. A kit to repair a separated heat exchanger line, comes with instructions as well. Ice maker and chilled water fill lines can crack and leak as well, this is fairly common with the plastic lines as they can dry out and crack. click this link for more help http://www.applianceaid.com/refrigerator.html
