I have a hotpoint ff187 l water is comeing out on the floor

At the back of most fridges is a small channel with a drain hole. The condensate drips out of this hole through a small pipe and usually onto a tray on top of the motor. At the motor it simply evapourates. Sometimes when cleaning the fridge this pipe can get pushed off at the back so water drips through the back and onto the floor.

Why is water dripping from inside the fridge around the rear light section?

In some Refrigerators there is tray below the freezer section and there is a small hole in the tray. Water dripping from the tray enters a hole below in the back and goes out to a chamber.
If the hole is covered with dirt or if you place something in the line between these holes, water will drip and collect in the bottom of the refrigerator.

I have a Hotpoint slimline 8214. No matter what setting i select ( 0-9 ), the little freezer box keeps over-icing and it also collects on the bottom of the ice-box where the drip-tray is located.

the little ice box collects all the condensate in the fridge,there is no way of stopping it,but you can slow it down by covering all food(except fresh veg).put the ice tray in a polythene bag.etc.....

The evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.

Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help. Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the back of the freezer.

HI, your intuitions are correct. this is defiantly a thermostat issue here. replacing this defective thermostat will fix this abnormal issue you are having with your unit.

When a unit of this nature cannot control the Coldness level, it is always due to a defective thermostat.

Fridge dont get cold.

If the compressor is running then it could be one of the following:
The compressor isn't pumping properly. The thermosat has failed. It has lost refrigerant or there is a blockage.
Not alot of help I know but without seeing the fridge it's hard to say.

Water leaking


There are several things to check for: The condensing defrost tray under the fridge can crack or develop a hole and leak onto the floor. A door gasket not closing properly may cause sweating and leak onto the floor. Some fridge's have a humidity switch inside the fridge that should be turned on to prevent sweating on the center bar between the fridge and freezer section. If your fridge has developed a frost free failure problem, often the frost will travel down the suction line at the back of the fridge and drip water on the floor. The heat exchanger tubing can separate and also sweat and drip on the floor. A kit to repair a separated heat exchanger line, comes with instructions as well. Ice maker and chilled water fill lines can crack and leak as well, this is fairly common with the plastic lines as they can dry out and crack.

Please revert for any clarification.
A Fixya rating would be appreciated if you found this to be helpful.
