Hank:--Most refrigerators go into a defrost cycle after approx 6 hours of accumulated running time of the compressor. If there is a problem with the defrost pan or tubing going to it as the other post mentioned, you should be able to make that determination. If the fan that blows across the condesing coils is in operative or loaded with dust. it will not evaporate the accumulated defrost water. In some situations an inexpensive defrost pan heater can be installed to remedy this problem. Why not level the refrigerator, and if it cotinues to leak intensify your search for the actual source of the leak. Once found the solution will be academic...Lots of luck ..Bud.
I just purchased a 4 year old side by side refrigerator
: which appears to be working fine. However, approximately
: once a day the refrigerator will discharge water and leave
: a puddle in the kitchen. I noticed the the fridge does not
: appear perfectly level (sloping downward from back to front).
: Could the fact that the refrigerator is not level be causing
: the problem or is this a sign of something bigger?
