It sounds like you have a broken place in the door gasket that is allowing warm air to enter the freezer.

That's where the drip pan is for the underside models, other than that it's likely a leaky door seal on that side or the case heater went out letting it sweat.

How do i replace the cracked drip pan in the french door refigerator

  • Unplug the refrigerator from the power source and remove the decorative vent cover at the bottom of the fridge under the door. Some vent covers are screwed on but many just snap onto clip that hold them in place.

  • Pull gently on the exposed front edge of the drip pan and ease it out towards you. The drip pan slides on runners on each side of the bottom of the refrigerator. It may be full of liquid or debris so go slow and steady and then discard it.

  • Line up the new drip pan with the two side guides beneath the refrigerator and slide into place. Use the flashlight if to make sure the drip pan is in the groove on each side.
  • Clean and replace the vent cover by clipping or screwing it into place. Plug the refrigerator back into the power outlet

    My refrigerator has same black fluid leak from same spot as ltyndall of 6/22/07. First night when I noticed it, it was semi-hard; and I used a butter knife to scrape it off the floor. Tonight, still liquid...

    This liquid is usually from condensation in the walls or doors of the refer, dripping down through insulation, sealants, sound deadening material on some units, corroding metal, ect., and dripping onto the floor. We have seen where the drain for the defrost system was plugged and the water gets into the insulation from this also. Make sure your condensate pan under the refer is getting water into it periodically. Usually every 6 to 8 hours. If it is always dry then you need to remove the freezer back panel inside the freezer and look for a plugged drain. You can also have a plugged drain in the refer section and in the tube for the drain that is on the back of the refer on some models. If it is from condensation, changing the temperatures can sometimes change the amount or position of the actual condensation. In none of this helps, unplug the refer, open the doors, and let it completely dry out for several days, in the sun if you can, and then restart and see if the problem recurrs. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

    Dripping water dispencer

    Dripping problem is from 2 sources.  Faulty water valve or faulty water connector behind refrigerator.  If the dripping is constant and doesn't seem to end, then it's a faulty water valve.  If the dripping stops after awhile, then the water connector is allowing air into the water line causing the dripping.  Have that connection checked to make sure that it's securely in place.
