I have this fridge and it leaks about 2 cups of water suddenly about
every 24 hours from the left side front. It doesn't appear to have
any broken lines, but I haven't emptied it out and tipped it over yet.
does this have something to do with the frost free system? Anyone know
of a fix? thanks,
Onto the floor only? Any inside as well?
Definetly check the icemaker and water lines. A common trouble maker is
a clogged/restricted defrost drain, but that usually leaks inside and
then out onto the floor.
Make sure the defrost pan ( may be built under the compressor ) is not
cracked and the drain hose is still pointing into the pan.
A frost free problem will certainly allow frost to build up o nthe
suction line and this frost will melt and drip onto the floor, but you
would likely also loose your cooling inside with a frost free problem!

Don't tip it over, that's bad for the compressor.
Do make sure that the area underneath the unit is clean and free of
dust and debris. Mine was leaking because there wasn't enough airflow
over the drain pan underneath.

Thanks for the info, I think it was a clogged drain line since ice was
forming inside the bottom of the freezer. Cleaned the ice out and no
leaks since. Will probably run a piece of vinyl tubing through the
drain line to try and clear it better.
