leaking fridge

The last few days I have noticed that my fridge is "leaking" a few drops of water. It seems to be coming from the back near the bottom around where the compressor is. Got any ideas what might be causing this and what do I need to do to repair it?

If this is a frost free model than I would suspect that the drain line that goes into drip pan is out of the pan or the pan is full of water.

Is there high humidy where you are if so it will take longer time for the water to evaporate.
look behind the frig remove the lower panel and look for the drip pan and hose

Thanks

This fridge was recently moved so it could very well be the problem. It is in a high humidity area (the basement). I know for a fact that the pan wasn't in the right place but I didn't think to look for the hose that goes into it.

I will check it out tonight and let you know.

Thanks
Greg

the drain line wasn't the problem

I checked and all hoses are going into the pan. I actually sort of saw where the water was coming from.

Just above the the compressor the back of the fridge indents the water is coming from there. See Below

The water is coming out of the spot where the first x is in the line of long x's
