Sound t me tat hte drain line is clogged up. or the gaskets are leaking air by. check the drain and make sure that its clear and give the gaskets the Dollar bil test to see if they have to be replaced. put a dollar between the gaskets and the unit and if you can easily pull it out then you need new gaskets.

I have a whirlpool refrigerator model #GT15HTYMQ81


The refrigerator is supposed to self-defrost approximately four times in every 24 hour period. If one of the components in the self-defrosting system fails, the refrigerator continues to try to cool. Eventually, though, so much frost builds up on the evaporator coils that the circulating fan can't draw air over the coils. There may still be a small amount of cooling because the coils are icy, but with no air flow over the coils, cooling in the refrigerator compartment is quite limited. Here's an inexpensive, though inconvenient, way to determine if the problem is with the self-defrosting system. Remove all of the perishable food from the refrigerator and freezer, turn the thermostat in the refrigerator to Off, and leave the doors open for 24 to 48 hours. (Be sure to have several towels ready in case the melting frost and ice causes the drip pan to overflow). This allows the refrigerator to defrost "manually." When the frost and ice build-up has completely melted away, turn the thermostat back to a normal setting. If the refrigerator then cools properly, it indicates a problem with one of three components in the self-defrosting system: Poor cooling is often the result of a heavy frost build-up on the evaporator coils. You can't see these coils without removing a panel on the inside of your freezer. A sure sign that there is a build-up is the presence of any frost or ice build-up on the inside walls, floor, or ceiling of the freezer. Such a frost build-up usually indicates a problem in the self-defrosting system or damaged door gaskets. The defrost timer The defrost thermostat (also called the bi-metal switch)

Ice build up under tray inside freezer. The water started leaking inside the fridge. I now clean the ice 1-2 times per week.


Drain tube The evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.

Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help. Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the back of the freezer.

Water is dripping down the back of the refrigerator inside and pool in the bottom of the refrigerator. Whirlpool/ freezer on top ET-1CHMXKQ02. Freezer is still working and icemaker is still making ice.


Defrost drain tube is clogged. Have to clear this by removing back wall inside freezer and removing the ice build up inside the defrost tray and tube. Very very hot water and hairdryer will help with this process. hope this helps.

My no frost is leaking water from under the freezer into the fridge and pooling up under crisper drawers


You have a clogged drain tube in the freezer . here is how to repairit. take off the ice maker if it has one. then remove the 1/4 ince screws in the back. the whole back panel will come off.depending on the ice build up you might have to defrost the unit. if you would like to easily fix it just unplugg the unit and let it defrost. defrosting will unfreeze the line. this will sovle you problem for a while but it will happen again.

Freezer compartment has frost buildup


This can be caused by the drain hole below freezer coil being blocked by ice. You MUST remove all ice in drain under freezer coil. Use turkey baster to squirt hot water into hole and use hairdryer to defrost. Possible defrost thermostat is defective. Unit never goes into defrost, ice forms on coil and in floor of freezer. After defrosting may work OK for a week or two but gradually gets warmer because ice is blocking ports where cool air gets to refrig. May also have water in refrig box. Can also be caused by defective defrost timer.

Frost buildup on area where ice comes out of the ice bin with frost also on the inside of door chute


The flap door where ice is dispensed is warped letting warm air into the freezer causing the frost build up. You must replace the flapper - a $5 - $7 part but not too difficult to replace. I find the flapper last only about 2 years and frost problem reappears. Forget about a "weak heater".
