I will get this question out of the way immediately to eliminate any other issue...Do you have a dog? Ok, hope that clears that up.LOL
Now, the first thing that I would check is for a cracked defrost pan, or a misaligned drain tube. Look REAL close at the pan as some cracks are not very obvious.
Next, check to see if all door seals are contacting the mullion strips, and no hinges are misaligned.Inspect door shelves and interior shelves to assure that no food items are extending over the edges, impeding the closure of the doors.
If you have an automatic icemaker, inspect all fill tube connections.
That's about all I can offer you at the moment.
Post me back if you need more assistance.
Thank you,
Dave E. (Illeagle)

Why do I have a puddle under my fridge every couple days but no sign of a drip or leak?


If it is an automatic defrost fridge the it will have a hose draining down into a container under the fridge, make sure it is draining where it should and has,not become dislodged. Some have a small tray with either pipes inside it or an electric heater. Some have a container sitting on top of the compressor, both of these are used to evaporate the water.
check to make sure there are no holes in the water catcher.
if you have an electric heater that is not functioning then the container will be already full of water and at each defrost cycle will overflow onto the floor.

could be the defrost pan / ck it for crackes / some times it's the water valve leaking through . due to water pressure changes . put a paper towel in disp and see if it gets wet at night . and if you have a large dog that drinks from it at night this also could be the problem ( ha ha // ) but it has happened .mm

If you have an ice maker, check for a leak in the water line. If no ice maker, there could be a leak in the pan for the defrost water, or the drain hose is out of position. Also, check to see if the water is actually leaking out from the freezer door. That would indicate a clogged drain. The bottom inside the freezer may have water, or ice on it. If so, suspect the clogged drain.

My Fridgidaire Professional series refrigerator has a puddle of water in front of it about once every other day. The puddle is around the front on the freezer side of the fridge. What can I do to fix this?


Drain line in the freezer section is clogged, needs cleaning. There is a small drain pan on the bottom of the rear wall in the freezer. It is covered with ice. Defrost or remove ice, and get to the drain hole. try flushing with hot water, if does not help - clean mechanically on both sides of the drain line - in the freezer and in the back of the fridge, where it comes to the drain pan near condenser/compressor.
