If the water is coming out from under the fridge and you have a water dispenser or automatic ice maker, then I you should pull the fridge out from the wall and check the water tubing going to the back of the fridge. The tubing is connected with a compression fitting (a special nut that compresses the tubing to the fridge. There may also be a few more pieces of tubing on/in the back of the fridge with these fittings. Place you fingers on each fitting to see if it is loose or wet. If you find a wet or loose fitting, take some pliers and tighten it (snug it up, but not too tight because you can damage the fitting. Dry up the water. Watch the fridge for a while to make sure the leak is stopped. If you can't get it stopped, or if it gets worse, you can cut off the water (there should be a valve under a cabinet next to the fridge, or under your sink). You can get a replacement fitting at Lowe's and they can tell you how to install it if necessary. If you have water pooling under your fridge and it goes up to the wall, then you should check on the other side of the wall for water also. This happened to our fridge, but we did not see the water in front of the fridge because it ran to the back of the fridge and under the wall into our carpet on the other side. Wet carpet is how we discovered the problem.

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.

older fridges drained water into a pan with the compressor in it, thus cooling the compressor and evaporating the water, this is located at the bottom back of the fridge. if this fridge has a water and/or ice dispensor, the water could be leaking from many a place.

Water on floor under front of fridge


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.

Water on floor


is possible that the plastic tube that leeds in the pan is obstructed or in a wrong position, check if water goes in the pan just put some water trought from the inside hole in the fridge and check if it reach the pan, maybe the inclination of the fridge is not sufficient, ( it has to be inclined to the wall direction so the water slides on the back inside wall of the fridge. can also be poor insulation of the fridge, so the outside surfaces come wet because of the hight air temperature outside and the cold surfaces of the fridge, then the water slides down the floor...make sure about air ventilation around the fridge!...I hope it was useful!

I don't have the same refrigerator, but had a similar issue with a GE. Melt the ice at the bottom of the freezer. I think the water comes from the auto defrost feature. There should be a hole at the back bottom of the freezer that water would go into, and run to an evaporator pan under the refrigerator. The tube may be blocked that allows this water to drain, so it is backing up in the bottom of the freezer, and overflowing through the front bottom of the freezer to your floor.
