    I have water in the bottom of the refrigerator. Is there a drain line from the freezer that might be stopped up when defrosting? If so, how do I open it?

    The vent slots in the ceiling of my Amana TZ21Q2L refrigerator leak a lot of water into the fridge compartment. This is quite frustrating, but I don't know how to fix it.

    I am having the same problem with my amana TZ21Q2L refrigerator. Has been doing it for a long time and I'm tired of dealing with it. It leaks from the vent holes in the ceiling just inside the front left of the door.

Do not plug the holes, it would only cause it to leak elsewhere. The problem is that the drain is freezing, go to repairclinic.com and order a kit to fix it. It is called a drain block kit or something like that

Maytag bottom freezer refrigerator, leaks from the bottom.


Hi,
As with all electrical, before you touch make sure the power is off! Taje the plug out, and make sure it stays out! Tie a plastic bag around the plug! Now, empty the fridge and freezer, and defrost, you can use hot water bottles and gave the hearing on in te house, be careful using hair dryers, you can warp or crack the plastic inner housing of your fridge or freezer.
Check on you tube or the Internet it Manuel whee the drain hole is! Get a funnel and out boiling water down, just in case there is any ice here. Then with a piece of wire (old cable )prod clean this drain hole. Check the internal plastic of the freezer for cracks or damage, use a torch and your hand. If cracks or damage is visible, you are safer with a bee freezer! Remember water and electrics can be fatal!
Think safe, be safe, remember it could be your child or partner killed just by touching the freezer if the water and ekectrics are causing a short. If there is no damage or cracks then plug in, and jet the freezer freeze, check for Leaks, if you have no leaks then happy days! If you still have leaks.......off to the electrical shops...... But to save shoe leather and time, have a look online, write prices down, see what warranties you are getting. Good luck

Freezer not freezing


Red light on for High Freezer Temperature Warning
or freezer not cooling, but fridge is and a lot of noise from compressor.
Also, fridge drain hole blocked, water in bottom of fridge.


This is a common fault in Hotpoint Fridge Freezers and can also happen if the door has been left open or has been a power cut.

1. Turn off fridge freezer, or at least turn down the freezer temp to minimum, though not ideal.
2. Open freezer door and remove all drawers.
3. Remove the back panel on the inside of the freezer. This is held in place with 4 screws, which might be 6mm hex head or star allen head. Pull the panel out.
4. Behind where the panel was, there is a cooling element for cooling, pipes, and below this a temperature sensor. If the fridge freezer is not switched off, then fold together a few layers of tinfoil and wrap around the sensor.
5. Use a hairdryer to slowly melt the ice. Melt it around areas where it appears to be hanging on, such as the corners of the cooling element or bolts, as well as any thin sections below the main block of ice around the cooling element, which will be supporting the main block. Use a plastic ice scraper to remove ice but not near pipes or sensor.
Warning: Be careful using electrics around water & melting ice & drips.
6. Below the cooling element, there is a drip channel & drain hole. If this hole is full of ice, pour a small amound of warm water down, leave for 10 seconds and pour a bit more until clear.
In the fridge, clear the drain hole in the same way.
Warning: Do not pour a lot of water down, as this water drains onto a tray above the hot compressor at the rear of the fridge freezer to be evaporated by the heat of the compressor and the tray will only hold a small amount.
7. When all ice is removed, dry all moisture. Put the shelves back. Close door. Turn on fridge freezer. Turn up the freezer temperature to your normal setting. Turn on fast freeze if available. After 1 hour, check with a thermometer. It should be cold enough after 1 or 2 hours.

Leaks water inside from the ports or vents under freezer but in fridge


Your problem more than likely is a plugged defrost line in the freezer...The freezer goes through periodic defrost cyles to keep the coils from freezing up. The water catches in a trough pan in the freezer and flows through a drain hole to the bottom of the fridge where it evaporates. This drain hole perodically freezes up and the water accomulates under the freezer bottom until the water level reaches your vent ports to the fridge section. Open your freezer and on the bottom floor of your freezer you should see two screws near the front on either side. Remove them and then take out the bottom tray....this will expose the drain hole near the rear of the freezer compartment. You will more than likely have to remove ice under the tray in order to see the drain hole. Remove the lower back panel on the back of the refrigerator and you should be able to see the drain line coming from the freezer. Unplug the refrigerator before you begin work. It will take a little while for the drain line to thaw to allow liquid to flow to the bottom. I find a hair dryer pretty handy in speeding up the process. To verify you have unplugged the drain line you should be able to pour hot water in the drain hole in the freezer and see it come out at the rear of the fridge in tube line just above a little catch pan

RED TEMP WARNING LIGHT ON MOTOR RUNNING


I'm sorry to have to tell you that this sounds like a very expensive fault to fix!
Either your fridge/freezer has degassed (lost the refridgerant gas) through a small leak in the pipe system behind or inside the freezer compartment, OR the compressor (what you called the motor) has started to fail.
Either way, these are very expensive repair jobs. It's possible to replace the compressor within about an hour, but if your model is out of guarantee, there will be around a £50/60 Call-out charge and the compressor will cost between £75 and £150 depending on the model.
Alternatively, if the fridge/freezer has lost gas, the engineer would have to try to find the leak - this could be IMPOSSIBLE if the leak is within the pipework inside the back of the fridge or above/below the freezer compartment.
I'm sorry to say that it's looking like you may have to part with a lot of money - or say goodbye to the fridge/freezer you have!

Water freezing in the bottom of freezer and leaking out on the floor from underneath


Defrost drain hole plugged - probably with ice. Defrost fridge, verify that you don't have something like a green bean stuck in the drain line. A piece of uninsulated solid copper wire wrapped around the defrost heater and run down that hole about 1/2" past the opening - MAKE SURE IT DOESN'T TOUCH THE TUBING OR CABINET LINER will prevent future freeze-ups.

Things freezes up in the refrigerator section of the home frige


If fridge is freezing, check the door seal on the freezer part. Make sure it is completely sealed, The freezer can leak air, allowing motor to pump freon continuously to fridge.
If the seal looks ok, try turning down fridge temp. If you have done this already, than I would look into having thermostat or thermometer sensor replaced.

Frigidiare PLHS39EESS9 Ice build up in bottom of Freezer


I had the same problem with my Jenn-air side-by-side

Your freezer has a defrost cycle and when the freezer temp is set too cold, your drainage pan and tube freezes up (behind the back panels in the freezer) and when that gets full it spills over too the bottom of the fridge and keeps building up until you notice.
  • Un-plug fridge and put your food in coolers or another fridge.
  • Defrost the freezer, remove the ice from the bottom.
  • Remove the back panel/s (in the freezer).
  • Check the drainage pan. If it is iced up, you'll have to carefully remove the ice and check the drainage hole.
  • If the hole is iced up, so is the first 1-2 inches of the plastic tube leading to the main drainage pan behind and under the fridge.
  • You can use a hair drier to speed up defrost.
  • To defrost the hole and tube I used round ended metal (nut pics or beater attachment ends- avoid sharp objects) heated up in boiling water and gently forced down into the hole and tube until defrosted.
  • Check flow(by pouring warm water) down and looking behind and under fridge(with flashlight) to see if flowing into main drainage pan.
  • Turn up your freezer temp and check with a thermometer. Your freezer temp was probably set too cold
Mine is going on 5 months with no problem. If this continues, it might be the defroster.
Good Luck!
