Water inside Frige

We have a Winnebago Journey with a Residential Maytag. It drips water inside the freezer compartment (bottom freezer drawer) The water then freezes on the bottom and at times has dripped out on the carpet. I have turned off the ice maker and also the water in the door. It continues! The frig seems to be working OK beyond that problem. Any thoughts before I pay for a service man?

Does that mean you have turned off the water supply, (or disconnected it) , BEFORE it gets to the fridge?

Since you have turned off the water supply both for the ice maker and for the WID going to the fridge I would suspect that you have a frozen Defrost Drain line.

I had a similar problem with my Samsung RF197 but in the fridge compartment. The Defrost Drain Line was frozen therefore the water which came off of the cooling tubes during the defrost cycle had no where to go except inside the compartment.

Here's the thread that I had posted with photos and the solution to the problem.

Frozen Defrost Drain Line - Samsung RF197

Unless you are very handy and this is the problem I would have a service tech do the repair.

Or you could follow this Do-It-Yourself fix which could be temporary or permanent depending on the severity of the problem. Mine needed a different part to permanently fix the problem.

This is about what I was expecting and will put up with it for the rest of the month until we return home. At that time I expect to store the RV with the frig empty. I suspect it will be ok after the thaw but wanted to hear your options.Thanks
