I have a Westinghouse Virtuoso fridge that keeps leaking wter onto the floor.
I have replaced the door seal but this has not helped.
Any Ideas before I need to call in the repair man?
you have a blocked defrost drain line, when this defrost the water is suppose to go down a drain to a pan below the refrigerator, this is clogged. is there ice on the bottom of the freezer below the drawer?

Yes the is ice which then leaks onto the floor.
ok you need to remove the back panel in the freezer and defrost the drain hole, its located in the middle bottom under the coils, you may not see it because it will be covered with ice, the best way i've found to do this is hot water and lots of towels, pour the hot water over the ice until it melts and drains freely, hope this info helps, thanks Bryan
