Question about Refrigerators
If its just a few drips - it's likely condensate from the drip pan overflowing.
Check the door seals. Make sure they are clean and not letting fresh (humid) air in and causing it to be over-worked.
It could also be the freezer defrost pan overflowing from the same issue. Usually there is not enough to fill the fan - as it evaporates with the heat of the condenser.
If there seems to be alot - your water line to the icemaker or water dispenser may have frozen / cracked.
There's really a few reasons that will require further investigation.

If it is a plastic compression fitting you can tighten each one a little(careful not to tighten them too much cause they can strip out) Use a small crescent wrench with a back up wrench.

Check the hose or the drain hole in the back of the freezer make sure hose is connect and the drain hole is not plugged

I would not be too alarmed about this. Most refrigeration systems will
drip water off of the condenser coils while in use. This can most often
be seen by cars that appear to "leak" only when the a/c is on. All that
this "leakage"is is condensation. This is the same reason that window air conditioners need to have a slight downward tilt to the outside. This is also why they unfortunately, often freeze up.
If you're only noticing leakage while the refrigerator is running then I would bet even money that this is what's happening especially if the refrigerator is still staying cold. Most normally this condensation is caught in a drip pan which lets the water evaporate. However, during periods of extended use, especially with periods of high humidity i.e. the summer, sometimes the condensation is higher than what the drip pan can hold and you get leakage over the sides.
Unfortunately while this is a relatively minor problem about the only way you are going to eliminate this is to install a dehumidifier in your home, or simply tolerate it for a month or so during the summer. I would bet dollars to peso's that after mid august this won't be a problem.
One thing to note however, is that if you start to see that it is running constantly, or if you notice that it's not keeping cool, then it may be time to call in a service person. But for your particular problem I don't think that will be necessary.
Actually a pretty common concern... second time in two hours I've seen it. :D

SOURCE: bosch fridge leaking water
ok seems here that u have a defrost problem or a buggered evap fan motor ie is there breeze flowing from the cover at the back of the freezer if yes than this fridge has not got a manual defrost control it has an electronic timer built into the main pc board witch means that it could be the defrost element itself or the main pc board is gone looks like u will need to consult a professional to resolve this problem taking into account that there is at least some water dripping into the drip trey at the rear of the fridge at the bottom on top of the compressor if not than it could be a blocked drain
