Hi! My name is***** am the expert who will be assisting you today.
This problem can occur if the door seal has failed.
Air gets into the fridge and condenses, forming water on the cold surfaces.
It then accumulates and drips.
Check the door seal and replace if it is hard, worn or damaged.
If the seal is soft and undamaged and the door is sealing correctly then check that the drainage hole is not blocked. You should find it at the back of the fridge at the bottom of the back wall.
Fridges are designed so condensation can filter through this hole into a small pan that sits on top of the compressor. The heat from the compressor then causes the water to evaporate.
Problems can happen when the drain gets blocked. Try cleaning it with something like a pipe cleaner, or cotton bud, making sure any blockages are removed.
If the fridge isn't level, water won't flow to the drain correctly. You can raise the front floor screws by a couple of turns to change the level of your fridge.
Again, ice will form if air gets into the freezer and condenses, forming water on the cold surfaces which then freezes and forms ice.
Check the door seal.
Ensure warm food (containing moisture) is not placed into the freezer.
Noise from an old compressor is normal.
