Most refs have those bottom trays. They are intended to collect water from condensation inside the ref. It has a built-in heater underneath the tray to "heat up" the collected water to make it evaporate, so it should always stay dry. Some refs have a fan beside the tray and has the same purpose as the heater. I have a few suggestions to solve your problem: 1, Access the tray and see if it has a wire connected to it and if this wire is connected to the ref. If it is connected, it should be warm to touch, or you may hear (or feel) a fan running. If it's not connected, find the other end of the wire that goes into the ref, it is just near the tray usually towards the back of the ref. Connect the wire from the tray to this wire. This should solve your query. 2. If the heater or fan is broken, you may order them from any reputable repair shop that carries your ref brand. You may have them install the parts to your ref also. 3. If you are a DIY person, you may change the tray or fan yourself but I'm not sure if you could purchase parts in your area. Hope I helped solve your problem...

Why is my air con leaking out the front of it I want to get to the overflow pipe inside but dont know how to remove the front caseing other than the filter part

Check where the condensate pipe goes onto the ground first as sometime spiders or wasps will block the end of the pipe. It is unlikely that the pipe is blocked inside although as you have seen the water does flow out inside..

Ice maker overfills the ice tray, ejecting large block of ice instead of individual cubes.

What is your model number? Sounds like you may need a new icemaker. Sometimes when the icemaker motor goes bad it causes the icemaker to keep filling even though it hasn't kicked out the ice in there. Also, are you sure there isn't 2 valves on the refrigerator?

Just recently, the ice maker stop dumping the ice cubes from the tray into the bin.

I believe the "tray" is supposed to get heated at end to let the ice release. Faulty "heater connection?" May need repairman diagnostic.

My Panasonic Air Con (CS-C12GKH) is leaking water. This happens every few months and each time I have to get a technician to come. Is there a way to permanently resolve this problem?

The water is leaking due to a blocked drain (because of accumulation of mud). If you are able to clean it on your own, you don't have to call the technician. When you remove the houseing of the indoor unit, you can see the water collection tray at the bottom of the unit - thats what you have to clean.

Central air unit/ Lux500 thermostat

There is usually an overflow tray which has a shutoff valve when the tray is about to overflow water into your house. It is not located outside on your unit but inside where ever the condenser unit is. IF that tray is full of water, your unit will not turn on until it is emptied. Then you need to find out why the tray isn't you have a blocked drain pipe?

DeLonghi DC89TTC Series Coffee Maker does not work

Your unit is probably wet on inside by bottom heater. Take apart and dry inside of unit. A hair dryer works good for blowing all excess water out and helps dry. If unit is still in warranty go to Call number they will tell you if unit is still in warranty if so they will replace for shipping costs.

Water leaking to bottom of freezer

ok you have a blocked freezer drain. The best thing to use to clear this is 'curtain wire (the plastic coated wire you use to hold up net curtains). Ok you need to find the drain hole in the "small tray on the back wall inside that fills and freezes and then the water is overflowing at this point to the bottom of freezer" you want to gentley feed the curtain wire down the hole untill the water drains down there. If you can't get the wire down you may need to turn the unit off to defrost as it could be frozen solid with ice. cheers
