10 yr old kitchen aid KSRS251 side by side leaks water from freezer onto floor about every 3-4 days - about 5 oz of water which is enough to be slippery/dangerous.

Also ice maker works but doesn't dispense. Doubt this is related to first problem but also would like to know if this is some sort of gear replacem

It seems to happen more when I have moved something around in there. it is not overloaded but doesn't like alot in the freezer. It leaks quite regularly but not necerssaril

Our freezer has a pool of ice underneath the freezer trays. We're not sure if it's caused by water spilling while we were making ice or if there is another problem with the freezer. We also have a small (but on-going) leak on the right side of the freezer. we think it might be the ice slowly melting but are not sure. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Have a 17 year old Kelvinator N640T side by side no frost fridge freezer. Runs well except ice builds up on the bottom of the freezer compartment and when it builds up too much some melts spilling water onto the floor of the kitchen. Were advised that it could be the door seals (have now replaced them with new ones)but problem is still there except that the ice does not now build up as quickly as before. Were also advised that it could be the defrost mechanism. Any comments welcomed. Thank

I know this is strange but here goes. I have a Kenmore Coldspot side by side Refrigerator. This past summer, it was leaking water out the front freezer door. We turned off the water and called a repair man. When he came, it would not repeat the problem. Slowly, a strange smell has arisen in the Fridge and freezer and has tainted the ice and water taste too. It is not my cleanliness! I have cleaned out both sides to no avail. Could there by a leak or a hose problem or something else? Thanks.
