RFA52 Water coming out back of Fridge through the discharge

This answer was rated:

RFA52 Water coming out back of Fridge through the discharge outlet. Increasing temperature made matters worse. How can we prevent water running down the back and making a pool on the floor?
Is the water actually leaking from the back of the appliance?
Is the drain pot on top of the compressor overfilling with water?

Where is the compressor located?
The compressor is the black pot at the back at the bottom.

The Water runs down the duct that has a green plug along the plug and on to the to the grating at the back of the Fridge and then collects on the floor.
Ok what you need to do is remove the 4 screws that hold the condenser chamber which is that big metal panel you see on the back.
Have someone to hold for you as you don't want to break the pipes.
Now you will see putty were that drain tube goes to. Pull this off and you can refit the drain tube on To the back and once in place you need to seal it back on with the putty again.
Now refit the condenser chamber and then go down to the drain tube in the drip tray on the compressor and make sure the end of that tube isn't blocked.
Once all that's clear pore water into the drain channel from inside the fridge and check there's no more leaking from there and that should cure the leak from there.
