Customer Question
We just purchased last...

We just purchased last month a Side by side refrigerator Model WRS325FDAM04. There is water dripping into a plastic tray under the fridge on the left side. We can see water dripping behind the bottom drawer through a hole in a plate which would be over the tray. Sounds like a sizzling when the water drips.

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of the fridge? And can you guesstimate how old is it?

Model WRS325FDAM04

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Depends on what need done

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Everything else seem to work good. Date on the Tag 02/16 . Just purchased last month I registered it online

This is all 100% normal. Your refrigerator is just defrosting. The silver evaporator coils behind the back panel build up frost over time and a heater runs along the bottom of the silver coils. When the heater turns on, it melts the frost causing it to drip down into a drain trough with a small hole in it. That hole is the start of your drain hose and the exit is just below a plastic tray collection pan below the entire refrigerator near the compressor. The water will evaporate over time from the heat of the compressor.

Nothing to worry about at all.
