Hi there and thank you for choosing this service. could you open the freezer and tell me if you can see a thin sheet of ice or water "inside" the freezer floor?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No ice found on the freezer floor.
We have now gone half a day without water coming out onto tiled floor,this has happened before then for no reason water appears again.
We have taken the refrigerator out and there is no evidence of a leak in connections at the back.
We feel that there is possibly a leakage from the filter connection as the water is coming from that side of the fridge.
Is there a water resevoir in this area that is over flowing under pressure?
Expert:  gst85 replied 1 year ago.
Ok so if the leakage is coming from underneath the unit, it can be the drip pan that may be full of water or the filter housing.that can be cracked and is leaking very slowly. the resevoir is located in the fresh food section mounted at the wall behind the drawers. has it leaked today?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

How do you examine the drip tray? The resevoir has no evidence of leaking. There is no evidence of leaking from the fridge today.


This has happened before, with no leakage, and then it will decide to leak water for no reason.

Expert:  gst85 replied 1 year ago.

Do you see the kick plate at the front just underneath the doors?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Water leaked onto the floor from the fridge last night. I can see the drip tray and it appears to have no water in it, but that is the area where the water is coming from I think.

Expert:  gst85 replied 1 year ago.

Ok so if the drip tray is dry then this tells me that your drain line is clogged which is going to be behind the evaporator cover just underneath the evaporator. you need to piur hot water to thaw the ice, let me know if you have any other questions. thank you.
