In yesterday's post, I alluded to the fact that my refrigerator is acting in a way I've never seen a refrigerator behave. Since we moved in in May, I've noticed varying levels of water and ice in the main compartment.
Let me describe the interior of the fridge to you. There are four levels not including the drawers. The top level holds milk, etc... The second level has a drawer underneath it that is intended for use for lunch meats, etc... We, being vegetarian, use this drawer almost exclusively for cheeses. Next down is another shelf and then the bottom shelf, under which are two big fruit/vegetable drawers. Under those is the bottom of the fridge with a shallow well for water collection.
But that's not the only place we find water in this fridge. On top of any container on the top shelf, particularly in the center, a pool of water will form, or if I've turned the fridge up all the way (in one of my attempts to figure out where the water is coming from) ice disks form on top of my tupperware.
I've taken to putting a cooling rack in the bottom of the meat/cheese drawer because puddles of water form there as well.
Let me make sure this is clear - I'm not talking about a couple of tablespoons of water. I'm talking about pouring out a cup to two cups of water from this small drawer every two weeks.
The vegetable drawers also get hit pretty hard with water. I've taken to keeping everything in plastic bags which is not good for most vegetables longevity.
The refrigerator is a Whirlpool, but we can't figure out which model. The freezer is above it and performs perfectly - no frost, no problems. The back of the refrigerator is sealed (the first I've ever seen like this - flat steel on the back) and the coils are not exposed. There is also no way we've found to easily get under the refrigerator to check it out. The refrigerator does not have an ice maker and is not hooked up to a water line.
Inside the main compartment near the back, I see two small holes where I suspect most of the water originates.
Anyone ever run into this? What the heck is going on?
