I am working on a Samsung fridge that has water leaking into the refrigerator section. The drain is totally clear. I can pour water down there and it drains no problem, but I can't figure out how water is still leaking into the fridge. I can see that is dripping out from behind the evaporator cover, pretty much where it would be leaking if the drain were clogged. Has anybody run into this before? Thanks!

Hi Brian, It may be leaking from the water tank assembly.

Here's the water tank assembly for your model:
DA97-07150A Water Tank Assembly


When you click the link to the water tank assembly there is a video that shows you how to access it, see if its leaking from there.

Thanks! I will check that too. I actually taped a paper towel below the evaporator cover and there was water on it after a few days, but maybe the tank is spraying a little.

That's exactly what I was thinking too.:)

Let us know how it goes.

So we disabled the water for a week and still have the leaking under the bins. If that were to rule out the water tank, is there anything else it could be? I'm wondering if tilting the fridge back a bit will help. This is a weird one.

What do you mean disabled the water? You shut the water off to the refrigerator?

Even if you did that, the water tank will still have water in it that can drip out.:)
