There is a leak inside of the refrigerator from the top near back. There is a opening - maybe from freezer and it is coming from there. I have tried different cold settings for refrig and freezer and it does not make a difference.

In back of the refrigerator the drain from the freezer comes through. This drain hose is more than likely the cause of your problem. Cleaning out the trap at the bottom of this hose where it goes into the drain pan under the refrigerator may clear up your problem.

I am pretty sure you are having a defrost drain blockage problem. The only way I know to resolve this is by removal of the inside rear wall in the back of your freezer to get to that drain opening. More HERE Sea Breeze
just had mine repaired it is a duct bill grommet that is clogged. Found out it is common and easy to repair. My part was w10309238. Took the repair man less than 5 min. You need to pull the frig out, unplug take off the bottom pannel mine was bottom right. A small socket screwdriver is key, look for a funnel running top to bottom, in side there is the duct bill nipple that is clogged with debrie or stuck with stickly stuff like juice. Remove and replace then seal up and defrost for 24 hours by opening the freezer door.
That is most likely a dual water control valve stuck open on back of refrigerator near floor. One side feeds ice maker and other side feeds the water dispenser. If the ice maker side began to leak slowly it would create quite a mess of ice flowing over ice maker and freeze every place it could inside the freezer. Part and Model Search If helpful Please Rate this solution, Thank You, Sea Breeze
It sounds like the drain for the defrost water is pluged. You can remove the back panel inside the freezer(ice maker will have to coe out first) and access the drain in the rear center of the freezer. Check the drain. It can be defrsted with a hair dryer(shut off the referigerator first) good luck, snugglepants
If is just one spot in the whole back wall like snow ball (small) ,the unit is leaking refrigerant and the leak has to be fixed and only after that recharged.But if the back inside the freezer gets all ice up and won't defrost by itself the problem is with the defrost system ,timer ,heaters or defrost terminator.
The condensate drain begins inside the freezer compartment behind the back panel and at the bottom of the evaporator coils. Every time the refrigerator defrost (about 3 times a day) the water needs to flow out the bottom of that pan in the freezer and into a plastic drain pipe to the bottom of the refrigerator into a pan on top of the compressor or side of compressor. Sometimes the drain is blocked inside freezer and there is a buildup of ice. But sometimes it is blocked near the opening that leads out of the fresh food compartment and then down to compressor tray/pan. If the blockage is near that exit then you will see a trail of water running down the back of the fresh food compartment and settle in bottom. The only solution is to slowly and carefully remove the drain pipe from the back and inside of refrigerator and clean it out. Let me know how you are doing on this and I will be here to help,Thanks Sea Breeze
your freezer cabinet need to get all out and open the back wall there
is a drain hole in the bottom middle of it make sure it is clean and if
you pure water they go all the way through the pip to the drain pan
next to the compressor.
IT SEEMS LIKE YOU HAVE A CLOGGED DRAIN . CHECK YOUR CONDECER COILS BEHIND KICK PLATE .. AFTER THAT YOU CAN UNPLUG FRIDGE FOR 24 HRS WITH DOORS OPEN AND SOULD DEFROST ENOUGH TO CLEAR DRAIN . IF NOT . DEPENDING ON MODEL YOU SOULD BE ABLE TO GET THROUGH DRAIN THROUGH MOST FREEZERS .
