refrigerator condensation

My ice box is creating water and has to be "mopped out" every other day. The ice maker is diconnected. There is no ice build up in the freezer. The freezer seems to be working fine. The cold storage part doesn't keep food cold enough, just cool. The seals seem to be fine around the doors. What could be the problem?

Possibly plugged drains. I assume you have an automatic defrost refrigerator. When it goes through it's defrost cycle, the water that results is routed through a series of pipes and fittings to a pan placed in an area near the compressor where the heat generated from the compressor causes the water to be evaporated. If one of the fittings or tubes is clogged what you describe happens.It has nothing to do with the icemaker. Everything seems to be working normal except for the drain,which you can't see.

Hello,
I have a 15 year old Hotpoint and it is doing the same thing. I took the line apart and cleaned it and made sure the passage way is clear. I took the back out of the inside of the freezer, no ice or anything blocking the drain. Any ideas other then getting a new fridge?
Thanks,
Danadena
