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.

SOURCE: Hello, I have a fridge/freezer hoover

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

There is a kit available, WR2X9393 which includes an aluminm heat probe which you attach to the heater to prevent icing of the drain

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.

Water is dripping into fridge compartment from section separating fridge and freezer compartments, otherwise, both seem to be working fine. unit was new in 2001, model ET21PK.


Hello,

That water is from the melting frost of the automatic defrost cycle. Their is drain in the freezer behind the back wall under the evaperator coil that is blocked, so instead of defrost water draining it's pooling in the freezer or in some case espically on models with the freezer on the top,the water is leaking from the freezer vents into the fresh food compartment.
The way to clear the drain is remove back plate and remove all ice build up and GENTLY make a small hole in drain through then totally flush w/warm water.
The exact location of drain is under the coil behind back freezer plate in the center

Good luck

I hope this helps

Water is pooling at bottom of fridge, comes out from area at top in the back behind light.


If your freezer is above your refrigerator compartment, this may be your problem:

Your defroster (automatic) may not be working properly. Ice is building up in freezer drain, damming up the drain hose to the outlet. Water then overflows down into the refrigerator compartment.

Pooling of water in fridge compartment of my Neff fridge/freezer


The defrost drain is clogged. Defrost drains usually get there clog right behind the back freezer panel. Remove this to get to the defrost drain and remove all built up ice and clear the drain and you should be fine. Hope this helps.

Water keeps pooling on the second shelf in the refrigerator, and I can not find the source.


Water collecting inside a fridge (that doesn't have a water dispenser in the fresh food compartment) is usually a sign of a clogged tube that directs water collected during the defrost cycle of the freezer coil. The defrost heater melts frost / ice that collects on the coil and water drips into a pan directly under the coil in the freezer compartment. The pan has a tube that allows the water to flow into a pan at the bottom of the fridge, where it is generally evaporated by the heat of the compressor.

You'll have to access the coil and pan (probably behind the back wall of the freezer - but check your model first!) and clear the obstruction from the tube. It is not uncommon for bacteria, mold, etc to grow in the tube. After clearing with a blunt flexible snake - run 4 - 6 ounces of a 10% bleach 90% water mixture to kill any growths remaining in the tube.

Sometimes, ice can form in the top inch or two of the tube, too. A turkey baster can be used to direct hot water into the tube to quicken the thaw process.

If there is water dispensing in the fridge, check all lines and filters in the compartment for spits, cracks and leaks. Repair / replace parts as needed.

Do not perform these steps with the power on!

I hope this helps!

Hi,
Here is a tip that will tell you where the water is coming from and how to fix it. The drain hole has froze shut and the water from the defrost will not drain out.

I have water pooling on my fridge trays and than turning into ice . The water seems to be coming from the vents. How do i get rid of that.


The freezer compartment has a drain hole behind the back wall inside the freezer compartment. The drain hole has probably rusted and has gotten larger. Carefully remove the icemaker and the screws from the back wall inside the freezer compartment. Lift the bottom of the back wall and look to see if the drain hole has gotten larger. You can make a small funnel from an aluminum can to fit over this area directing the water into the drain tube. It worked for me. good luck. Dave.
