Kenmore Coldspot -- Dripping Water in Freezer?
Brand: Kenmore Coldspot
I noticed a dripping noise earlier tonight and found that it was coming from our freezer. Here is the area of the freezer that I saw water dripping:
This is located at the bottom of the freezer.
We turned the water off (behind the fridge) and it appears to have stopped dripping (although not immediately - it's been an hour since we turned it off, and it no longer drips)
Is this something that is meant to happen, and if not, what can be done to correct it?
I did try and search for an answer, but couldn't find anything that seemed to replicate this issue. Appreciate any suggestions, or otherwise.

You may have just seen the refrigerator defrosting.
The evaporator coils are located on the bottom of the back wall of the freezer section. A heater comes on to melt the frost and the water then drains into a hole and into a pan.
The refrigerator is cooling ok?
There is no standing water or ice in the bottom of the freezer section?

Yes, just keep a eye on it.
So it would be safe to turn the water back on and pretend like none of this happened?
Don't turn the water on and then leave for a week.
