Is this just water droplets on the bottom side of the glass shelf, or you are getting a good amount of water beneath the glass shelf?
a good amount of water under the glass shelf. It is visible in the front but if I lift the shelf up to soak it up it goes all the way back. It is clear water and sometimes it soaks 3-5 paper towels
We have also noticed that the seal on the door has gotten tighter and we need to wait longer to open the door.
I will out on a job for a bit this AM hopefully you will have an answer when I return.
this was definitely a help. However, you might find this helpful: when I got the back panel off I found the the channel for the drips from the cooling fins was not so much frozen as had some lint in it it. I assumed that that was the reason it was not draining well. I cleaned all of that up and using instructions from another website I poured some bleach into the hole. It still did not drain well. I then used a turkey baster to suck up anything that it could reach from the hole. This helped a little more, it still did not drain very well. So then I went and got my shop vac and tried that trying to extract anything that might still be clogging it within reach. Not much improvement. Then I rigged up the end of the turkey baster to the shop vac hose and tried to blow air into the drain hole. After all that I took the bottom drawer out and cleaned the fins and grill but I could not find where the drips should be once they have reached the bottom.
So all in all I have a VERY clean fridge but I am not sure that the problem is solved and probably won't know for a couple of days.
If you can research it a bit more and find out how to really clear the hose or whatever is in the back to transport the drips to their final destination I would appreciate it. I also found a video on line that showed someone snaking out the a hose but as I said I could not locate that.
