Red face Leaking Fridge or AC gasket/drain?

Thought I had a water leak behind the fridge, but it only happened occasionally. There would just be a wet spot on the floor in front of the fridge. I finally got the HWH FWS fixed (again, 4th time); now I can deploy the FWS slide which was holding up the fridge removal as you need that floor space.

I was just about to pull the fridge out when I realized it only happens when the ACs were running. Any ideas? Could there be a clogged AC-specific roof drain?

We have been rained on with no issues, so it isn't a roof leak or clogged roof drain. Can't say I'm excited about yanking the fridge out...

Inspect the fridge drain hose and condensate tray; is it where it's supposed to be, does it have any kinks.
For the A/C, inspect the plenum that divides chilled air from return air. It must not have any leakage between them or the chilled air mixes with return air below the roof.

Be sure your return air filters for the A/C are clean. If they get really dirty, they will not allow sufficient air circulation across the evaporator coil & it will produce excess condensation.

When the slides are in I have noticed that condensate will form on top of the slides and also drip on the bed from lack of air flow
Since you said the slide was broken I would hold off doing anything

The duckbill on the refer drain tube is known to stick closed causing water and ice build up in the bottom of the freezer which can cause water on the floor in front of the refer.
Here's one of several threads on the subject....

Good luck !
