Question about Refrigerators
We have had this unit in continuous operation since 2000 and recently encountered water dripping into the refrig compartment from the air vents just below the freezer. Removed the freezer drawer and assembly and found the freezer floor covered with ice and the drain line at the back of the unit, frozen. Removed the ice and melted the plugged line (using a hair drier and boiling wate) Line now appears clear. I assume something plugged the drain and it eventually froze? How did something get into the line or is their some other issue related to the line getting plugged? Thanks, Fred
If the freezer is on top then empty out the freezer and remove the bottom and back liner of the freezer compartment usually phillips screws. In the back you will see the freezer coils along with a defrost element. Below these two items u will see a drip tray that collects water from the coils on defrost cycle, in the center of the pan will be a drain hole that connects to a hose that leads to a pan under the refrigerator.Normally the water is collected there and evaporated. The hole in the tray in the freezer is clogged. Thaw it and clean it until you can pour water in it and it goes to the pan down below. please rate me
algae, bread ties andf other thing mysteriously get in there and clogg it

Even though I flush water down drain tube and seems to be clear, ice builds on pan quickly, must defrost manually every month??
