I have a Fisher & Paykel fridge/freezer model N500B a CFC model with the freezer below the fridge.
We have started to get a frost biuld up at the top of the back wall of the fridge compartment. A registered repair man has suggested it is a know Fisher and Paykel problem and can only be temporarily addressed by melting the ice build up with hot water and/or a hair dryer.

Amana Fridge with bottom freezer Model# ABB2224DEQ There is a 1/4 inch ice build up on floor of freezer. Then, the following defrost cycle causes water to run out of the freezer onto the floor.

The cooper pipe by the fan condensates and then the ice will melt. Instead of dripping in the pan, it drips on the floor. I also do not have a cardboard backing covering the back of the fridge.

Our Whirlpool top freezer unit is leaking water into the refrigerator. The model number is ET21NKXGW01 and at the top of the inside of the fridge, water is draining out into the fridge. The defrosting drip pan at the bottom of the fridge is empty. It seems like there might be a clog. Is that possible and if so, how do I remove it?
We were able to fix the freezer water leak. We unscrewed the false freezer floor and the inside back panel. Ice had accumulated on the freezer floor and the defrosting drain was frozen. We removed the ice by using a blow dryer then poured boiling ...

Kenmore 25371462100 I have a 2001 kenmore refrigerator that is leaking water from the freezer onto the top shelf and under the produce baskets at the bottom of the fridge.

Whirlpool Fridge (Model ET18LKXHW00) continually freezes up and water drips into the fridge. Ice builds up under the freezer floor tray and then blocks vents. I've cleared it out including the frozen drain plug on occasion with hot water until it flows through the tube in to the bottom drip pan but the problem returns. Is it the heater? Is there a way to check it?
Try turning the defrost timer manually and see if heater becomes hot. ...
Whirlpool 21.0 cu. ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator with IceMagic Plus Ice Maker
Westinghouse freestye model RP423Q has water accumulating in the bottom of the fridge, from the drain tube at the back of the inside of the unit. Water isn't draining to the external part of the unit.
I have a Kenmore side by side model # 106.53609202 and its about 8 years old. About a month ago it stopped making ice. I've already replaced the water valve behind the fridge and waited 24 hours and still no ice. The water dispensor in the freezer door works fine. I haven't heard the ice maker 'call' for water either. The drain hole in back of the freezer was blocked with ice but I cleared it with hot water. The short water tube that feeds the ice tray is not plugged up. I think that's about it.
OK, remove the cover on the face of the ice maker and let me know if the model look like this picture: If it looks like this mod ...

Ever since I've owned my fridge (coming up on 4 years), the freezer would build up into a big chunk of ice causing the freezer temp to drop and the fridge temp to rise. I would melt the chunk of ice and then drain the water from the back of the fridge. It would work properly for a few months and then start happening again. Now, its happening with more frequency. Currently, the freezer temp is holding around 0 and the fridge temp is up around 55-60.
