Refrigerator in Jayflight 24rbs

We are seeing that sometimes we are getting water coming outside the refrigerator on the left bottom of it. We have had this happen 2 times so far and also seems like it has happened to the previous owners since I see swollen wood in the left lower left corner area. Does anyone know why? Is it that the drain hole freezes and then the water drips down? The refrigerator drain area seems a bit of a concern since it seems it can let water escape frequently due to condensation. Please help. I hate water issues.

I had thought this would get a lot of replies. Has nobody had this issue?

Are you referring to the rear of the frig behind the outside vent cover?

Post some pics.

You can remove the outside panel and take a look.Dont remember if there a drain hose or sheet metal tray for water drainage.

I too was wondering if the water was coming out of the frig itself, or out the back access area.

If it is leaking out the door, I would check the condensate drain, make sure no bugs got in the tube and plugged it. From the rear access panel, my condensate drain tube had a little bug cap. You can chase a fine wire (door bell, ethernet) down the condensate drain tube to clean it out.

That tube, should go to a little catch pan. Many people extend the tube, and have it exit out through the access panel. To me it looks like a pain to take the panel on and off as needed.

The fridge does a defrost cycle one per 24hrs so that frost and ice don't build up on the cooling fins. Your leak is likely occurring during this event, and somehow the water isn't draining down the drain tube properly.

Each morning, turn your fridge off for 1 second and then back on again, and that resets the timer for the defrost, so that it won't occur. Do this each day to inhibit the self-thaw cycle and see if you still get the issue.

I also don't like to have the drain tube on the back side of the fridge draining into the black plastic catch container either. Often times the water can collect faster than it can evaporate and overflow is a risk. I am in the habit of routing the white drain hose/tube out one of the vent holes in the plastic fridge panel cover so that it just drips onto the ground.
