Re: water dripping in to freezer bottom ten pools on
Sounds like you have a drain that is plugged. When it goes into defrost the water hass no place to run. Thats when you get water like that. I would defrost it completly. Then try to get to the drain and pour hot water slowly to see if it goes all the way down to the pan. If not. Yu may have to have air pressure to go thru the drain.

That water is from the melting frost of the automatic defrost cycle. Their is drain in the freezer behind the back wall under the evaperator coil that is blocked, so instead of defrost water draining it's pooling in the freezer or in some case espically on models with the freezer on the top,the water is leaking from the freezer vents into the fresh food compartment. The way to clear the drain is remove back plate and remove all ice build up and GENTLY make a small hole in drain through then totally flush w/warm water. The exact location of drain is under the coil behind back freezer plate in the center
I had the same problem with my refrigerator/ bottom freezer. It is a Kenmore and would build up ice in the bottom and would eventually drip water on the floor in front of the bottom drawer. I solved the problem by doing a few different things. First I took off the back cover to see where the drip pan was located. Look for the drain tube that goes into the drip pan and in my case cut two plastic ties to gain a better angle for my next steps. I took a turkey baster and a cup of hot water and shot it in the drain tube several different times. Then I took a string trimmer line (pretty thick) and pushed that into the drain tube as far as I could get it and worked it back and forth. My final step was to blow air into the drain tube in towards the freezer at which point I could hear the ice in the icemaker blowing around. The following day the water was draining into the drip pan and not into the bottom of my freezer :>)
This is the water coming from your defrost cycle. I'm not sure on this model, but the auto defrost will always generate some water. Some brands use a pan underneath that collects the water and then lets it evaporate, and some put the water in the condenser coil that's under the unit. Yours must have the line that runs from the freezer to the place it's supposed to go unhooked or misrouted. It could also be clogged inside the freezer.
Sounds like it has a " seeping " water valve . Only thing to do is replace the water inlet valve . There is a certain amount of water to go into icemaker at fill . A seeping valve will let water continually drip into icemaker , making large cubes which icemaker cannot dump . A larger amount of seeping , will overfill the icemaker , and drip into the freezer and floor .
If this is your water dispenser leaking Your water inlet valve on the back where the
water supply comes in is probably leaking. disconnect the water line coming out
of it and see if you have a slow drip. Try the dispenser to see if it's just
drips after use.
I have pooling inside the freezer, which freezes and then leaks on the floor. Does anyone have the 7 year wrap around warrantly? I bought one with my frig in 2002 and have misplaced it. I wonder what is covered on this frig full of problems.
