A blocked drain hole is the probable reason behind the issue. Modern frost-free refrigerators undergo a defrosting process in which the temperature is raised to melt any ice build-up. The resulting water drains into a tray beneath the fridge and evaporates.
However, the drain hose can become obstructed by tiny particles, which can lead to water leakage onto the floor.
Running too frequently
This may indicate that your Refrigerator is not functioning optimally, possibly due to a low thermostat temperature setting, other issues such as a faulty fan motor or sensor, or significant problems with the condenser unit. It is recommended to set the temperature to around 40F for optimal performance.
Malfunctioning ice maker
Automatic ice makers are undoubtedly convenient but can pose some problems. One issue is water leaks caused by the water inlet valve not closing properly.
This could be due to a faulty valve or insufficient water pressure, which should be at least 20 psi to ensure the valve is seated correctly and not allowing water to flow when it shouldn’t.
Frost builds up in the freezer section
Moist air from the room enters the freezer compartment when you open the freezer door. As the air freezes, the water vapor turns into frost. The defrost cycle, which heats the freezer section periodically, melts the ice into water, which then drains away.
If there is a build-up of frost, there is likely an issue with the defrost cycle.
