I'm sorry to say that it sound as though your door gasket may no longer be sealing correctly.
For me, it's simply a task of getting a replacement gasket for that make and model.
To remove the old one you would, simply, peel the inside of the gasket toward the outside of the edge of the door revealing the mounting screws. Remove these screws all the way around and replace with the new one in the same fashion...
The reason that I recommend this is that humid air outside of the refrigerator can seep past a worn gasket and condense on the inside surfaces making its way to the bottom and into those drawers.
I have had the same problem. In my case, its the little water tank behind the left crisper. The tank has cracked (twice now) which means replacement (again). The water leakage gets so bad that it leaks into the freezer causing ice up problems in the rear.
Well for one thing that unit was manufactured 10 years ago. But it sounds like the defrost drain is clogged and the water is running down the inside of the unit. The evaporator (not condenser) is on the bottom of the freezer compartment. The bottom panel of the freezer comes out. They are a bit of a pain to do, but can be done.
That water is coming from your freezer during the defrost cycle. Normally there is a drain in your freezer that goes to a cup in your refrigerator and through the back of your refrigerator through a drain tube which extends down to a drip pan. If this tube gets plugged up, water will overflow in the cup and leak at the back wall of your refrigerator and through the holes that lead to the crisper's floor area. If you can remove the cup and using a wire dislodge anything blocking the drain, clean the cup of any debris and check your freezer drain for any obstruction causing water backing up and leaking !
If you remove the back panel of your freezer you will notice what looks like a drain - melted water will go through a drain hole that extends to your refrigerator inside a cup that slowly drains the water through a tube through the back of your refrigerator and down the drip pan. Your cup may appear fine, but maybe there is some obstruction somewhere causing the water not to drain fast enough - so what happens is that the cup will eventually overflow - try to see if you can remove this and pass a long wire down the drain tube at the back to dislodge anything blocking or partially blocking it - see if you can also clean your drain cup, eventually small derbris accumulate. At the back of your freezer panel look for any partial or complete obstruction of the drain hole and its surroundings, which might be iced up.
I myself have had this problem for months, my refrigerator would have water at the bottom accumulate and eventually under the crispers a river of water :)
Cleaning the cup and the drain tube at the back of the fridge and the drain and surroundings at the back of the freezer panel should fix this problem. Sounds like your drain at the freezer level is plugged up and water is backing up and leaking from elsewhere !
Check that the hole at the back of the fridge is not blocked with gunge. There should be a drip tray at the rear with 2 slopes towards the hole where the condensation drains to. Some cabinets come with a little rod to clear the blockage. The rod may live in the hole alowing water to drain around it. Have a peek!
If the freezer is on top then empty out the freezer and remove the bottom and back liner of the freezer compartment usually phillips screws. In the back you will see the freezer coils along with a defrost element. Below these two items u will see a drip tray that collects water from the coils on defrost cycle, in the center of the pan will be a drain hole that connects to a hose that leads to a pan under the refrigerator.Normally the water is collected there and evaporated. The hole in the tray in the freezer is clogged. Thaw it and clean it until you can pour water in it and it goes to the pan down below. please rate me
hi thanks for the question the water in the crisper is caused by a clogged drain tube Pull the fridge away from the wall. remove back panel clean all coils find drain tube in drain tray and clean to inside of fridge thanks the appliance doc
