    what is wrong if it is leaking water?
    can you save money and continue to use it as long as the temperature inside the fridge is cold / cool and the food is not spoiled?

    All fridges have a drainage pipe that go to a pan which then evaporates.

    I have the same problem but my fridge is an older model & it's probably difficult to get the parts if the pipe has to be replaced.

    If your fridge is relatively new & you can find the parts, you can look at DIY repair. Search Youtube for a video that show you how.

    For example here is a video for the Maytag"

    If inside, maybe wall pipe to ice maker tube leaking?: then off the ice making system.
    If outside waste condensation water container overflow (from auto defrost function in all frost free fridges): then u better drain the tub before NEA officer finds mosquito larvae and fine u $200 and up.

    If u know it is some tube blocked, then pls roll up your sleeves n diy/ pay agent to find out what is problem. Most fridge are disposed after 7yrs or compressor break down because change of compressor involves pipe wielding (unless gahmen imposes policy to allow convenient compressor change and standardardised compressor size + specification): otherwise, too much hassle to find + replace compressor so entire fridge is replaced.

    My fridge a Maytag is about 17 years old & still going strong. I looked at replacing it but unfortunately the agent no longer imports this brand otherwise I would buy the same brand.
    I can of course get another brand but I doubt it will be as lasting but I'm still looking.

    So I will hang onto the unit until it breaks down or I find something better.

    My unit was checked for dengue & the NEA never made an issue about mosquitoes. Mosquitoes need stagnant water & in my case water is still going to the pan & the pan is being heated to cause evaporation, but it is leaking because of age or dirt build up. I doubt mosquitoes would like it.

    pls share info. which option is better?

    A. Buy one unit of freezer and buy another unit of fridge (chiller)

    or

    B. Just buy one unit of fridge (chiller) with freezer function at the top of compartment?

    which is more efficient and last longer

    spacewise option a is not practical. moreover freezer-only units are for commercial kitchens and they make a lot of noise. compressor is not being dampened for home use.

    most popular these days in american homes has huge freezer section at the bottom and two-door fridge at the top.
