Water dripping from freezer to fridge I have a layer of ice under the bottom of my freezer and water is leaking all inside the fridge. Lots of water. I cleaned all the ice out of the freezer and thawed the ice that was on the coils and this helped for a couple of days, now it has repeated itself. What could it be?

Sounds like the drain for the defrost cycle water may be plugged and you eventually overflow water. See if you can find the little drain hole for the coil defrost water and check for dirty/plugged. Try to pour hot water in the drain area and see if it runs out the drain fast (if real slow it's a problem). Make sure the water is also going down to the holding pan near the bottom area/compressor area (that's where it evaporates later). Let me know what you find.
