This sounds like a drain problem. The drip tray is part # 60 on the part's list. The drain tray could be overfilling or it may be leaking. Most top mount models have the drain pan on the left side, facing the unit and is probably toward the back. Usually the drain tray can be accessed, by removing the back panel and it will be located behind the fan motor.

If it's full, it could be a humidity problem. Excess humidity will cause the refrigerator to absorb more moisture, causing a higher than normal frost accumulation. The excessive frost can overflow the drain pan. This problem goes away when the humidity level goes down. Safety first: When servicing an appliance always make sure to unplug the unit.

Also, make sure the cabinet is leveled and square. Door's must align along the mullion's.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services

In the mean time while your waiting on an expert answer, you can take a look at the Sears Parts Direct website where you can look at the diagram. From looking at the diagram I see one heater in the "cabinet parts" and one thermostat in the "Diagram Essay." I've attached the link below, I hope this helps!!!!!!!! http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Haier-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/Model-HTE18WAAWW/3126/0166000?searchedModel=hte18waa&blt=

ya- thanx- that's what got this started - there's a -04 and a -08 heater suffix, and there is a thermostat, but it's not detailed as a defrost termination thermostat. Our regular parts guys don't do much haier, and we're left with sears as a sort of best option to keep this client from packing our landfills for want of a simple part. Thanx for the reply, I sure didn't expect to enter a public BB for this answer

I can understand your concern. Unfortunately, the model number listed is not complete. However, there are only 2 models that show up when adjusting the model listed. Both models use the same defrost heater # RF-3400-08. There is also a defrost thermostat and fuse shown in both of the wiring diagrams. However, the parts list does not have either part listed. There are 2 defrost cables also listed that may include the thermostat and fuse but both of these cables are not available. In some cases, the bi-metal and fuse will be included with the heater. If the defrost thermostat has failed, most of them have the temperature stamped on it. Another thermostat with the same temp rating will work. I recommend checking the thermostat and heater first and make sure there is sufficient frost on the evaporator and around the thermostat, so it should be closed. I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance, please include the complete model number.

Thanx Scott- I think the suffix for the model no is - WW. This unit is in a facility that we can only use OEM parts for repair, I don't even know how it got there. I am having somebody check on the model no to be sure we have it all, and I'll forward this info to this BB. Is there any way to find out if the -08 heater assembly has that aforementioned cables and termination components, such as a visual check? I am assuming that the fuse mentioned is a TCO style? It has to be shut down to perform any disassembly for checking on our end, generally our MO is to come in with parts in hand to perform complete service in one visit.

The heater does not have any other parts with it. However, after checking with the source, the defrost cable # RF-1302-75 will include the bi-metal (thermostat) and fuse and is for this model. This part is available at the link listed below. I hope this will help you.

Thanx Scott- there is no link that I can see- I do have the complete model no- it is HTE18WAAWW05. So this heater cable- RF-1302-75, is another separate part, right? It does not include the heater? Can you please re-post the link?
