Hello
There is a drip pan under the evaporator coil. This pan is to catch the condensation dripping off the coil. Then the water goes down a drain hose to a re-evap pan. That all being said. What's the problem you have? The first thing I look for is to make sure the hose is still connected to the drip pan. The next and most ofter is the problem is a clog in the drain hose or where the hose connects to the drain pan. We use compressed gas to blow out the clogs.
I would also check the pan for cracks or holes. This should take care of your problem. Also make sure the door and gasket is sealing to keep air and moisture from getting in and making the condensation problem worse.
I hope this helps you. Please leave feedback.
Thank you.

Water leaking out from inside and running out under the fridge. Do I need to clean out the outlet pipe and if so where would it be??


Check the drain tube that leads to the defrost pan under the fridge. The drain tube maybe plugged. Do you have water standing in the bottom of the fridge and if so that is probably the problem. However, something must be defrosting inside the fridge to create that much water. Be sure your fans are running inside the fridge.

When i close the door on the freezer side the water trickles down the front panel


This could be a leaking water valve. First thing I would suggest is to turn the water supply off under the sink or behind fridge wherever its located and see if the leaking stops.If so then you'll need to replace the water valve on fridge. If this doesn't work look up inside the ice chute on front of door and make sure the flapper is closing all the way when you get ice. Warm air coming up into freezer because the flapper is not sealing tight can cause water to run down front of fridge.If this is the case there is usually frost buildup on the ice chute on the inside of door.

Leaking under neath front of refrigerator


Usually any defrost water sits in a plastic pan and evaporates away in normal operation. If the pan becomes brittle it cracks and leaks water. Pull the fridge out and look on top of the black pot (compressor) Is there a plastic drain pan sat on top of it?
Sometimes if the fridge is working hard a lump of ice can form on the pipework going back to the compressor which melts causing some water at the front of the fridge.
Lastly, the insulation under the fridge may have broken down, allowing condensation to form and drip. If the drain was blocked, the water would be inside the fridge, not underneath.

Water leaking from inside the fridge


Clear ice build up from drain plug using hot water in a syringe. Works well I just did mine. Located behind access panel inside fridge. Blue tube running down the back. Pull down and remove ice from the drain at the top.

Water leaking from underneath. Not currently


This could be a blocked drain.Behind the fridge is a hose/pipe running from the inside of the fridge down to the compressor where the water will then evaporate.If this pipe is blocked,the water will push up back into the fridge.Try to blow the hose clean from inside the fridge.This should solve your problem.

Fridge constantly dripping wet


water inside, too much condensation from humid air entering fridge from bad seals. replace the seals. could also be that the condensate drain is clogged. if it's leaking from the bottom of the fridge, make sure the tubing is still inside the condensate pan underneath the fridge.

Refrigerator leaking water


Try cleaning out the hose (on the exterior rear). This is the drain from the condenser to the evaporator pan.

Fridge Leaking water from front right hand corner


yes, get a pipe cleaner and put in to the hole to try and clear if not from the back you will find the pipe which will be clipped to a plastic tray on the compressor. unclip and blow up the pipe this will always clear the blockage.
