Condensation forms and water drips down my Whirlpool refrigerator (Model W8TXNGMWQ01) at the lower outside back. Next to a running fan there is a copper tube that appears to be carrying refrigerant from compressor. This tube is cold and condensation forms on it. The fan always runs - at least when I check it. Don't know if it is normal. Also, I noticed ice droplets form on the roof of freezer and frost seems to frm on ice cubs inside ice maker bucket. The unit is 3 years old. The problem could have been there since the beginning.
Thanks for your answer. I'll ask Whirlpool to look at it. This unit has been leaking water since the beginning so much so that the subfloor underneath has so much water danage that it has to be replaced. It's in a rental property and I didn't know it until recently. The water leaking may or may not have all come from condensation. I discovered the ice maker water line wasn't securely connected, everytime the ice maker chunk out a batch of ice, water would shoot out from the faulty connector. That has to be a factory defect. I have reconnected and fixed it. Do you think I can get Whirlpool to pick up the expense for that?
The problem went away after I moved the unit and reconnected water line when I had to redo the kitchen. I will move it back to its original place and monitor condensation issue after kitchen project is complete next week.
