Is there a kit or something for condensation problems in fridges this style?  Everytime I go on a call for one of these fridges i am there two times or more trying to fix thisw water leak problem.  this is the only style I have this problem with and I know it is probable an easy fix.  I checked seals for leaks.  I checked drain for blockage.  I tilted fridge back a bit to help water run do the drain... not sure what else to try.  of course unless I am going to sit there all day I cant seem to find just where the water is coming from.  in one days time it fills the bottom of the fridge and water runs out the front.

re. friggy top mounts leaking water

if the water is comming into the fresh food section you need to remove the control panel from inside the fresh food section, you will find a gap between the foam block and the tray the defrost water drips into, you need to install a thick roll of permagum over the foam and the tray to seal this gap and the water drip will stop

as for the second post added to this one for the defrost tray overflowing... the drain pan has 2 compartments.... you need to position the drain tube so water drips into both sides or atleast so more water goes into the larger compartment rather than the smaller one, the factory positions this tube incorrectly quite often

pls start new post if either of you have problems after trying these fixes, the friggy guy(me) just came back online recently
