Question about Refrigerators
Kenmore, model # 106.8134311 or that series. Not frost-free. Original in my mobile home. There's a drip-director tray along the back wall of the 'fridge that has begun to form mini-ice bergs. Food also freezes in the refrigerator portion. I keep freezer defrosted, and have vacuumed coils, etc. I tried to remove the ferrule-capped drain cover to flush out the tube connecting to the evaporating tray, but don't know how to remove. I thought maybe the tube was clogged.
More ideas on what to try? Abandon hope & buy new?
Hello. I don't know how big the drain is but you can try putting some baking soda and vinegar down the drain. Sometimes this will clear the drain due to the foaming action. You also might be able to go to a hardware store and they will sometimes have a special kit for clearing drains that has a small pressurized tank with special fittings. You will do better at finding these at an appliance parts store if you have access to one. You can try taking the back panel off and usually the drain tube drains into a pan. This is usually on frost free units though. You can also try carefully running a coat hanger through the drain. The best way is to blast it out like I do with a special tip on a refrigerant charging hose connected to a high pressure tank. I know you don't have this but I am mentioning it because the previous suggestions only work some of the time on certain types of drain.
Hope this help.
