Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

The bottom of my German made fridge keeps filling with water. As VERY Senior citizen I cannot afford expensive repairs and would be very grateful if you could indicate what might be wrong - and if it would be cheaper to buy a new fridge! This one is about 2 years old.

The fridge works but water keeps filling the bottom of the fridge. Is there a way to prevent this?


Guessing this is a top mount, freezer on top. Sounds like a defrost drain clogged. Pull off freezer cover and check for ice build up. If there is, drain is clogged, thaw and use compressed air if possible to clear drain

Whirlpool ET18GKXDN05 refrigerator water in bottom of fridge under drawers.


Sounds like cooling coils inside ref. that cools the water before the dispenser in the door.
These coils are in the back bottom of ref, behind crispers. They may be leaking.
Here is some more help.

The cold control needs replacing. Thats the knob with the numbers that turn the Ref OFF and ON.
What I do is call my local Appliance Parts Store with my model no. They are extremely helpful .
Get freezer and ref thermometer. Ref is probably too cold.
Freezer should be 0 to 10 degrees. Ref 33 to 35

After 15 color copies voice comes on Color ink LOW, Senior Citizen


The ink cartridges shipped with a new printer are not filled to full capacity as are the ones that you purchase for replacement. Office supply stores "Staples" "Office Depot" etc can refill your cartridges for about half of the cost of a replacement cartridge, I do not reccomend refilling the same cartridge more than twice but even after the second fill you can then trade the cartridge in for a discount on a new one.
Hopefully this helps.
You can also open the printer settings and lower the print resolution for jobs that do not need full color/resolution.


Please rate FixYa Experts assistance, whether your rating is good or bad helps The experts immensely.
Thank you for taking the time.
