Water is leaking into the refrigerator’s fresh food compartment

When you notice water leaking out from underneath the refrigerator unit, you may have a problem with the defrost drain. This drain will sometimes become blocked with debris and make it difficult to drain properly. Immediately after the drain becomes blocked, the ice starts to build up and will continue to do so until the ice reaches a certain point. What can you do to fix this problem? Simply unplug the refrigerator and allow the ice to melt. Find the drain following the owner’s manual and remove the debris that has it blocked. If that doesn’t work, you will need to call a professional.

You are most likely going to hear a slight sizzling sound. This is a common sound when ice has built up. The evaporator fan will then engage and so it can try and break the ice up, so it can be pushed on through the system. If the noise is loud or if there is other signs that the system may not be working, you will need to call an electrician to avoid getting shocked by the unit if you work on it.
