It's a tall thin 80 % fridge with a small 20% freezer at the top. The bottom is one salad/veg tray and a space where we keep drink bottles/cans etc. The puddle appears right in the middle, resting on the base of the fridge. Any ideas please what's causing it? I cant find any mention of this problem in the booklet.

Is the little drain hole at the back clogged? You need to get a very long cable tie and give it a good broddle to clear it, the little plastic broddle they supply with the fridge isn't long enough to do the job properly. HTH smile

Turn down the thermostat a little bit. If it's too high it will be over frosting and dripping.

I just did the same thing with mine.

Our does that if there is anything touching the back wall of the fridge.

Agree with time for me, ours also does this if there's any ice on the plastic shelf bit on the back wall of the fridge which stops the drips draining into the hole
