Question about Frost Inglis 17.6 Cu. Ft. -Free Top-Mount Refrigerator - Silver - IT18SKXRD
Water keeps pooling on the top shelf... up to a cup a day. It seems to be coming from rectangular openings in the ceiling of the fridge compartment.
Hello, this sounds like you have a blockage in the drain tube, remove panel back of freezer..you may see ice build up...melt ice with hair dryer/heat gun...you will see a pan below evaporator...melt ice in pan...dry water up in pan with paper towel...now you should see a hole in pan that leads to drain tube...pour some hot water in pan..wait a couple minutes..mop up water and repeat this step 2-3 times....once you have done this find some flexible curatain wire or electrical wire..poke down the hole until you see the water drain..now it is clear..put back panel back and you are good to go. The reason you see water in the Freezer is because the water has been leaking into the freezer instead of running into the drain hole...If you need any further assistance please feel free to comment again. good luck! P.s Please don't forget to rate my solution thanks! Mike.

Testimonial: "This gave us an idea of what to do. The drain tube was blocked with some plastic lumps that must have come from the factory in our 3 month old fridge."
Some models have water reservoir for dispenser in the ceiling area. I have seen those leak.

Just did the same thing to my parents fridge, I found the penetration through the backwall of the fridge where the pipes come
Through had a big ice berg growing from it and the drain was completely frozen over, I sealed the peno with silicon and unblocked the drain. It's behind the big plastic panel in the fridge, 3 screws and a few side clips you have to squeeze in. The fan was frozen-in in my case so I had to melt it to free the cover panel
Hope this helps
