WARNING: Before testing or repairing any parts, be sure to
disconnect your unit from its power source completely.
Drain (Top Freezer Models): When frost builds up on the evaporator coils,
the defrost heater turns on to melt away at the ice. The refrigerator then
drains out the excess water onto the drain pan. The evaporator fan is
circulating air throughout this process, which may cause debris to get caught
in the coils. If there is a large accumulation of debris, the drain can become
clogged, resulting in a water leak out onto your floor.
Pan: If your refrigerator drain pan is broken or cracked, it may cause leaking
out through the bottom of your unit.
Gaskets/Seals: These are the rubber fittings that create an air-tight seal
between the doors of your fridge and the unit itself. If they have become
stretched out, they will not form a proper seal. The cool air condensation will
then be released out of your unit and may cause leaking.
