It is possible the fridge went through a defrost cycle and it is the water expelled as a result of that. There is a tray at the base under the compressor in the back and normally it is meant to collect water and evaporate out. But if there was too much condensation inside the fridge there could be an overflow of the tray.

I would get the door seals checked to reduce condensation in fridge if this is happening consistently.

Hi! Please try to check the auto defrost button. If it is activated water will come out from the back bottom but will be stuck on the water catch and should be nowhere else. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

Water seems to drip down the upper back inside of the fridge, and freezes in droplets, and it also freezes any food pushed up against the back of the fridge.


Hi Ford:
Could you check the drain from the auto defrost?
There will be a rubber tube running down the outside back and it leads to an evap tray under the unit.
At the inside top (where the water seems to be coming from) there should be a funnel that catches the water from the auto defrost. If it is plugged or the drain tube is plugged, you will encounter the problem that you describ.
Hope this helps,
Cheers.

Why is there water on top shelf in fridge


I would guess the fridge is not set level. A small amount of water is normally meant to condense and run down the back of the fridge and then evaporate outside the fridge.

If either the fridge is leaning forward slightly or if anything on the top shelf is touching the back of the fridge, then instead of running down the back of the fridge water may instead end up on the top shelf.

Assuming the fridge is still working in every other respect then this is what I would suspect.

Eaton's Viking Model 1266F fridge leaking defrost water


Your idea/plan sounds pretty good. There is a drip pan under the fridge right? it might be a good idea to run it into that. Good luck!

What causes my food to freeze in my refrigerator?


Is your thermostat working correctly? meaning it does turn off the unit. if it does let it off for a few minutes then slowly start to move to #1 and you should hear a click let it run in that setting and see if temperature is ok let it run for about 12 hours and check your temp. if ok just let it there if still freezes you need to replace the thermostat also make sure the fan cooling the compressor is also clean.

Fridge noise cutting out


To be honest it sounds to me like your fridge may be ok?

To extract the heat from within the fridge interior a compressor (motorised pump) moves gas around a series of pipes around the cabinets insides. This movement of gas causes heat to be picked up and taken away externally to the outside world. When the fridge temperature reaches a predetermined level (around 5C) the compressor shuts down and all is quite. The sound of running water you hear is the coolant gas changing state from gas to liquid and running through the coolant pipes. If the fridge is doing it's job and keeping the content cool then I wouldn't worry. One of the reasons you are probably noticing this sound is because it is a table top fridge. Built in fridges make the same noises but you don't really hear them so much because of the cupboards screening the sound.

Water in the fruit and vegetable draweres


You might have the frig. temperature set too low. Set it at 38 deg. check actual temp. with gage. What happens is ice builds up in the drain tube that runs down to the bottom when the fridge defrosts therefore causing water to run into the veg. drawers. Ice buildup is preventing the water from running out at the bottom where it should. Just raise your fridge temperature a little and the problem should go away. Hope this helps.

Water pooling at the bottom of kenmore fridge


I had a Kenmore fridge - about 20 years old when I replaced it this year. It used to do the exact same thing especially in warm/hot weather. What it is is the water from the freezer defrosting. There should be something on the back near the top, inside the fridge sticking out - a tiny little tray sticking out and it may also be part of supporting one of the shelves, I can't remember. Anyways, water from the defrost pools in there and is supposed to evaporate, but it gets clogged with gunk and the water spills out and runs down the back of the fridge down to the bottom. Get a pipe cleaner or something and poke it into this hole and clean out the pipe to the hole isn't blocked. This is all inside the fridge, not outside, on the back panel outside. That's the best I can do to describe the solution - it's an easy fix you can do yourself. Good luck!
