SOURCE: refrigerator leaking water out
being in the uk, i don't know this appliance specifically so take this as guidence. there are two places where water can come from. at the rear of the fridge there should be a gully at the bottom of the evaporator wall - the part that frosts up. in the middle of this gully is a drain and this is likely blocked. push something flexible down it and check blockage is cleared by pouring a small amount of water in the gully and see it flows freely away. good idea to occasionly pour a small amount of dilute bleach down it now and again to keep it sweet. the other place for water to come from is if some of the contents of the fridge are touching the back wall. when it defrosts the water tends to divert onto the shelves

my kenmore frig side by side did the same I flushed the freezer drain like the instruction book says but it leaked on the floor after A week.
I pulled out the frig unplugged it in the back I removed the bottom black cardboard grille and vacuumed the underneath and removed the black drain tube and flushed water through it and put it back that solved the problem and took about 15 minutes to do I hope this helps people who are having repeat trouble.

2 things could be wrong first is you compressor running if is not running you have to check the overload to see if it tripp if it did it will sound like a babys rattle just repl and compressor should kick back on if is running then is you evaporator motor running if is not then check for volatge at the wires if you get 118 then repl your motor. is the unit defrosting is there a lot of ice on the back cover it might not be so 3 thing might be failing 1 timer 2 defrost thermostat 3 heater coil call a tech to have those check out thanks

IT SEEMS LIKE YOU HAVE A CLOGGED DRAIN . CHECK YOUR CONDECER COILS BEHIND KICK PLATE .. AFTER THAT YOU CAN UNPLUG FRIDGE FOR 24 HRS WITH DOORS OPEN AND SOULD DEFROST ENOUGH TO CLEAR DRAIN . IF NOT . DEPENDING ON MODEL YOU SOULD BE ABLE TO GET THROUGH DRAIN THROUGH MOST FREEZERS .
