    FFU2065WO freezer

    Was out without power for 2 weeks. Cleaned the freezer out but didn't see the drip pan. Since power came on, the stench has been terrrible. Can't stand it any longer and so the freezer is put out on the covered patio and plugged and running empty with baking soda, and kitty litter in it. I've cleaned the drip pan pout since then. Poured bleach in the drip pan. Cleaned the freezer insides with Lysol. What else can I do? It's been 9 days and I don't smell any improvement.

How do i replace the cracked drip pan in the french door refigerator

  • Unplug the refrigerator from the power source and remove the decorative vent cover at the bottom of the fridge under the door. Some vent covers are screwed on but many just snap onto clip that hold them in place.

  • Pull gently on the exposed front edge of the drip pan and ease it out towards you. The drip pan slides on runners on each side of the bottom of the refrigerator. It may be full of liquid or debris so go slow and steady and then discard it.

  • Line up the new drip pan with the two side guides beneath the refrigerator and slide into place. Use the flashlight if to make sure the drip pan is in the groove on each side.
  • Clean and replace the vent cover by clipping or screwing it into place. Plug the refrigerator back into the power outlet

    Need to empty drip pan. How do you remove the

    The standard procedure is to remove the plastic grill at the bottom of the front of the freezer and then slide the pan out for cleaning and emptying. Might as well vacuum dust out while your at it. Helps the compressor operate at a cooler temperature.

    Frozen drain line from top freezer to drip pan

    Hi, Remove everything in the freezer. Get as much ice out as possible with out using sharp object. You will need to remove the rear evaporator panel inside the freezer and locate the drain hole below the evaporator. The safest way is to use a hair dryer. Once you can get to the drain hole and get the ice down inside the drain thawed (a few glasses of hot water usually gets the job done) Try and run a wire (I use a hose or biasting seringe) and get that drain hole flushed out real good. Sometimes it takes 45 minutes or so. After that is cleaned out, put the rear panel back on and you should be all set.
    I hope I have helped you. Please let me know if I can be of more assistance.

    Layer of water on bottom of freezer,causing problem opening bottom drawer, having to use hair dryer to thaw.

    If it is a frostless your drain tube is plugged. The water cannot go through the whole to the drip pan so it flows over into the freezer. Unplug the freezer and leave the door open all day to thaw. Or take the back wall out of the freezer and unthaw the drain tube with hot water and a hair dryer.
