Belling model: b151 fridge-freezer

Hi,

I have a belling b151 fridge-freezer. My problem is that the fridge compartment has a pool of water on the floor of the compartment every morning. I found that ice was building up at the back of the drain on the back wall of the fridge - blocking the drain hole and hence my water problem. What could be causing this?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

you have a defrost issue, while not familiar with hoover, normally there is a defrost timer, a defrost heater and a defrost thermostat, one of these three things are not operating. (may be more than one )

SOURCE: Frigidaire side by side freezer-

this should not be happening as a heater in the freezer should eliminate this problem.first check the hose is completely clear,if it is when your fridge goes into defrost mode you should be able to feel warmth near this drain or hear the ice crackling and defrosting thence draining via the rear tube also try removing the offending ice in the drain with hot water

SOURCE: lg frost free fridge freezer gr-399sq

on the back wall inside the freezer unscrew the white panel and then remove the panel behind this . you should now see a tray that runs the width of the freezer with a driphole on the left-hand side which will probably be frozen with ice , chip away whatever is possible and then put boiling water on the driphole and once this is clear you should find the problem sorted , 1 other option is to turn the fridge/freezer off for several days and this will allow the ice build-up to thaw thus resolving the problem

SOURCE: There is a water leak inside the freezer

You need to remove the bottom two baskets, or more to make space. Using a hairdryer, defrost the back area. You should be able to locate a drain hole in the center below the freezer coils. This drain hole is connected on the outside to a drainpipe which has a p trap and often gets blocked up. You need to force water down the drain hole. You can use a turkey baster or similar type of plunger filled with water. Once you have cleared the blockage pour hot water till it runs freely. Hope this sorts your problem, don't forget to rate me.

Water Pooling & Freezing


Assuming your fridge has a defrost cycle ( I.e. is a frost free model), you are probably suffering a blocked drain hole or pipe, leading to the top of the condenser or a tray nearby, where the frost water can evaporate.
The pipe can block with food or a mould plug, leading to water retention that freezes and further blocks the drain. the water is produced when a heater switches on in defrost mode and thaws the internal or external ice build up and, with nowhere for it to go it will pool on the bottom and may, when in defrost mode, run out onto the floor.
With frost free fridges/freezers, there is a drain outlet, usually hidden behind a removable panel inside the fridge/freezer compartment or, a drain hole near the bottom. If there is a drain pipe as well, access is usually from the rear base of the machine. The pipe is usually removable and can be cleaned out but prepare for some water to escape. An ice block in the drainage hole can be thawed using a hair dryer BUT GENTLY, so as not to warp the plastic inners of the fridge.

Gd5sha water under the freezer


This normally occurs when you have a large buildup of ice in the freezer, when it does a defrost there is just too much water for the hat on the compressor to handle. Make sure the door to the freezer & fridge is closing properly & the seal is in good condition & not falling off, moisture in the air causes frost in a freezer. So too many door openings can cause the same problem.

I have water pooling under my vegetable drawers, what could be causing this?


The drain tube in the freezer may be partially clogged or melting ice build up on the floor of the freezer may be dripping into the fresh food compartment. Most freezers are frost free but there may be some problems beginning in yours (a faulty defrost timer, terminator, etc.).

You could remove the contents of the freezer and the plastic tray on the floor of the freezer. If you find ice there, remove it by thawing and remove the water. Check to make sure that the drain tube in the back hasn't become clogged with any debris, etc.

Reassemble and pay close attention to the temperature of both your fresh food compartment (34 deg) and freezer (0 deg) to see if it is getting warmer but the fridge continues to run. If so, if might be time to call a pro for repair.

Good luck!

Ice build up in freezer compartment until water flows onto floor.


Hi, Is this a wwhirlpool brand fridge?
The drain is plugged in the freezer section. If I could get model #,I can get you ezact instructions.
If the floor panel in the freezer has screws holding it in, remove the fllor panel. Now you will need to remove the rear panel inside the freezer as well.
If this is a Whirlpool brand, there is an after market drain heat strip that you will need to add to the defrost heater.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

Water pools on floor


Check for a blocked defrost drain. Take the panel off at the back of the freezer section and find the small hole at the very bottom center below the cooling coils. Use hot (but not boiling) water and a turkey baster to flush it out until water runs through it. (it will go into the defrost drain pan, where it will evaporate)

"jennycub" sounds like a drain clog in the freezer compartment above. remove the freezer rear panel and totally defrost the evaporator area, directly under the evap you see( under all taht ice) a small drain hole that has become frozen over, try defrosting with either a hair dryer( not a heat gun too much heat youl melt everything) or by pouring hot water donw the drain until you get a free flow of water down the tube. after its clear reassemble and you should be fine. very common problem( easy to detect. water on the floor of freezer compartment) as far as the other posting by" humblerumble", ive seen where the drain tube under the refig has pushed a hole into the drain pan under the refrig, in which case it will only leak after a defrost cycle, with the kickplate removed grab a flashlight and look under the unit for the drain pan as you pur water into the back of the freezer sect to trace water flow
