New Frigidaire refrigerator dripping water inside -

I replaced fridge a short time ago and it has been dripping water ever since. About 1 small bowl of water every 4-5 days.

Vendor sent tech who clearly had no clue; tinkered with it a few times and left saying it was fixed.

I procrastinated after him making a few calls for which I took time off work and now it is out of warranty, which was clearly worthless anyway.

I guess it is a good drinking water source.

Model no:FFTR1821QW0 SERIAL NO: BA50549227

Any help or advice is appreciated.

Where do you see the water ?
Coming from the top inside of the fridge.... running down the inside back ?

Is it a stream or water in one location or does it spread out like something is sweating ?

Water drips intermittently from housing for light bulb.

Ok... that sounds like water from the evaporator coil defrosting. It's possible that either the drain line (part 84) is plugged or something is in the drain trough (part 17).

You can remove the center plastic cover in the fridge to see the drain hole at the bottom of the cold coil. You should be able to pour some hot water down the drain hole to check the operation.


It could also be caused by a misadjusted door or a door gasket that isn't sealing correctly. Usually in that case you'd see water droplets hanging from the divider between the fridge and freezer.

There are quite a few videos on you tube illustrating this common Frigidaire problem.
