I am having water accumulate in the bottom of my refrigerator, under the drawers. I know it is coming from somewhere, and I think it is my freezer, but I am not sure. My refrigerator does have a ice maker, and inside frig water dispenser, which I don't use alot, and is at the front of the frig, and the water is definitely coming from the back somewhere. Refrigerator is 7 yrs old.

Your refrigerator defrost on the average about every 8 hours so the water that accumulates during defrost has to go somewhere right? You have a defrost drain blockage. We need to see if the water is overflowing the condensate drain tray or if the blockage is in the turn the drain leads down back of your refrigerator. Much more on this page=> Leaking Refrigerators! Not all blocke drains act the same when your refrigerator leaks so please ask should you have questions. Please provide the model number found around the fresh food section door frame. Kenmore model numbers look like this example=> 321.1234567 If you run into any problems along the way of repair please let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze
That's normal especially if you tend to leave the door open alot. Moisture from the outside air condenses and drips to the bottom. Also, if the refrigerator is automatic self-defrosting it will melt ice collecting around the refrigerator and the resulting water will collect at the bottom. Check under the food drawers for a drain hole. If it is clogged, clean it out. If it doesn't exist, periodically sponge out the bottom under the drawers.
The tubing back there would not be the cause of this. It is most likely coming from the defrost drain. I have put together some instructions on cleaning this out. Follow the link and let me know if it helped.
Possibly your defrost drain found inside the freezer back wall is blocked. If you could send me the model number I could help you better. Thanks, Sea Breeze
Look at following areas for the model number
Beneath Or Inside Food Compartment On Cabinet Frame
There is a drain, usually at the bottom of the refrigerator compartment. Pull out the bottom two drawers and see if there is a drain. It is usually in the very back of the inside compartment. Make sure it is not clogged. Usually, this is the problem.
