We have water leaking on and off again from under our bottom drawer freezer.  There is not ice build up in the bottom of the freezer.  It seems to happen after we have taken ice out of the ice bin but not always (maybe it does, who knows?)  I do not see any ice build up anywhere? 

 

Thanks in advance.

The water can only come from three sources. Condensation, defrost drainage failure, or icemaker /water line system. Doesn't appear to be a condensation problem so we can rule that out. If the water is on your floor and you are 100 percent dang gum certain there is no ice buildup on the floor on the freezer or covering the condensate drain tube (did you put your peeps on it and touch it? Sometimes the ice is quite clear and almost invisible) and you notice water after obtaining ice, then you probably have a leaking water line/valve or filter housing (if equiped) . Turn your icemaker off and see if you stl have a leak... better yet, turn water to the fridge off.

oh, i forgot... and not to be funny since I've done "repairs" like these: Make sure, if the water is only on your floor that it ain't coming from another source, ie.. dishwasher, sink and open water pitcher on fridge door, spilling every time the door is shut.

I will turn off the ice maker (once I figure how to do that) and see how it goes.  If that doesn't stop the problem, I will turn off the supply line and see if that helps.  Thanks guys, and no it is not a fido issue but I did think of that at one time!

Also check for a cracked or out of position defrost drain pan.
