Question about Refrigerators
The drain hole located inside the fridge compartment is probably blocked. Most common reason for drain blockage is water freezing in the drain line. Do a complete defrostor use an hairdryer set on cold to free the drain line. The complete defrost is better.
If that does not do the job use a flexible shaft to free the line from debris.To this purpose use a thin flexible shaft called pipe cleaner, along with warm water and vinegar or citric acid. Contrarily to what suggested by users I would not use any soap. This can clog the drain more. Best unclogger in my experience is citric acid and water.Disconnect power before doing the cleanup.
If that is not enough, inspect drain pan and check the drain exit at the back of fridge.
Here the Pipe Cleaner (click).
Here Citric Acid (Lemon Salt) 7oz.
Defrosting clears the problem most of the times, providing that the fridge is clean and not too old.
If problem is not condensation and clogged drain hole, check for leaks from icemaker and dispenser.
