The top of the inside of my 2002 Whirlpool refrigerator Model ET1FTK (top mount)is frozen and is dripping onto the first shelf.


Hello,

The cause of that drip is going to be a blocked defrost drain in the freezer and the water from the defrost is pooling up in the freezer then when it can't hold anymore it's dripping through the vent in the ceiling of the refrigerator onto the shelfs. By removing the back wall of the freezer you could find the drain on the bottom of the freezer coil. By GENTLY peircing that frozen drain at a 45 degree angle until a small hole is formed in the built up ice it could be totally flushed using warm water once a small opening is made in the ice in the drain.

Water collecting under bottom draws inside frig


Hello,

That water is very likely dripping from the freezer because the drain for the defrost is blocked,so instead of the water draining its dripping through the vents down under the crispers. This tip i wrote will help ya to clear that drain to keep the water from dripping through the vents.

You have a drain clogged at the bottom of the evaporator inside freezer compartment. You'll need to remove all contents put towel inside, turn off, pull out to access back of fridge, pull drain line off or check at bottom in pan where it normally drains, you can melt ice at top of tube with hot water,hence the towells. this is a messy job usually takes about a good hour to get it right, just perservere. I will fix it, when you get it cleared. I have employed a coat hanger to speed things along as a tech it is the call I dread because of the mess.
Good Luck,Masta tech

Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
Well, it seems like the drain pipe or the drain channel is clogged, and the defrost water from the evaporator coils is dripping through the quoted regions, down to the base. Try checking the drain hose/ channel and remove the clogging if any (Blow some moderate temperature air through the channel and check/ remove any permanent clogging If any). Feel free to ask the details, or any question relevant to the trouble..
Concerned.

Water dripping from freezer onto top shelf of fridge with ice buildup back of freezer


the defroster isn't close enough to the drain to be effective. remove the back wall of the inside of the freezer, remove the excess ice. clear out the ice from the drain using hot water and a turkey baster. there is a kit from whirlpool that uses a piece of metal and a screw around the defrost rod, but I found out that a piece of 14 gauge solid core wire with the insulation stripped off works great too. stick the stripped wire into the drain, 2 to 3 inches, and wrap the rest around the defrost rod.

Water drips from evaporator fan channel Frigidaire FRT17G4B


It sounds as if this is a top mounted refrigerator. (freezer on top) If this is the case, check to see if you need to defrost the drain. You could also have a problem with the door seals. Remember the air coming out of the vent is freezer temp minus a few degrees. It could be that the moisture is condensing in that area.

Water Freezing in bottom of Freezer and dripping out front of freezer door


this could either be a blocked drain from the freezer not allowing defrost water to escape or the defrost heater failing to turn on due to a faulty defrost heater or defrost timer not enabling the water to escape
