You should fine a drain line just below the freezer level in the back. The drain line is more than likely plugged. Check the loop seal down by the drain pan under the back of the refrigerator. It may be restricted at that point. It may require a complete defrost of the freezer to clear the ice formed in the drain from a back-up.

Water drips inside our refridgerator . it comes from a point where the cold air comes in from the back wall


Take a large clear bowl half full with water and place it on the top center of the unit. This will help you to level the unit on all axises.This is probably your situation because during the defrost cycle the water that remains is supposed to go through a small hose and be evaporated by the warm coils in the rear.

Hi



Some leaking water refrigerator helps....

  1. My older style Amana freezer on top refrigerator is leaking inside
  2. My refrigerator is leaking water inside
  3. My refrigerator is leaking water onto the floor
My refrigerator is leaking water inside the fridge:

Most times this is a plugged defrost drain system. The defrost heater in the freezer section melts the frost and changes it to water, this water is suppose to flow down a drain system. If this drain system is restricted or plugged the water will leak inside the refrigerator. The drain system starts in the freezer section with a tray built under the evaporator coil. The water is funneled through a small hose into a cup in the top middle of the fresh food section ( not on all models, but this is the most common way ), from there, the water is directed out the back wall to a drain hose that runs down the back of the refrigerator into a condensing tray. The heat created under the fridge makes the water evaporate and disappear. Some of the cups ( in the top back of the fresh food section ) can be removed for cleaning. A turkey baster can be used to help clean out the drain system. Fill the baster with hot water and "blast" it into the drain hose to help flush it out. A piece of wire or pipe cleaner can also be pushed into the drain hoses to help clean then out. On a S x S style of fridge the drain system is in the bottom back of the freezer section and often you will have to remove the evaporator cover to access the drain hole. You can clean this out in the same manner as previously mentioned, but because of the water leaking into the freezer instead of the fresh food section you will have to remove the ice build up to clean out the drain system. For some reason Whirlpool has found a need to "hide" the drain hose inside the walls now ( Whirlpool makes many of the Kenmore branded refrigerators ) on there top freezer refrigerators. This makes accessing the drain hose to flush it out more difficult, no cup inside the fresh food section, no hose down the outside back wall and the only access is inside the freezer section behind the back false wall and under the evaporator coils.

Please do rate the solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Water Leak


I have a 2000 that did the same thing. There is a small pipe that comes through the firewall to drain water from the air conditioner coil inside. The water comes out of that pipe and wicks back into the inside. They make a little extender to put on that pipe to take the water away. I fixed it by attaching a small hose to the pipe and putting a little goop around it where it comes through the fire wall.

Water Leaking


The defrost drain is clogged up. I can't say much more because you didn't supply the model #
This may be a drip catch that you can get to from inside the refer or it may be the big tube on the backside of the box.
You may have to take the freezer apart and use a hair dryer to thaw out the ice.
Model numbers are important!

Water leak


What's happening is when the fridge goes into defrost water goes thru the drain and is seeping into the crack by the damper which will run into the fridge section.  Why?  The drain doesn't come down far enough for all the water to go down the drain tube.  Frigidaire has a new drain that is longer and will prevent this problem.
