Sounds like low flow issue. Flush and clean system, PROPERLY! Buy a flush kit, drain system, blow compressed air through, fill with cleaner/water mix, run for 30 min with heat on, drain system, blow out with compressed air, fill with water, run for 30 min, drain, blow out with compressed air, fill with 60% coolant mix.

The fridge works but water keeps filling the bottom of the fridge. Is there a way to prevent this?


Guessing this is a top mount, freezer on top. Sounds like a defrost drain clogged. Pull off freezer cover and check for ice build up. If there is, drain is clogged, thaw and use compressed air if possible to clear drain

I have a Whirlpool-Estate refrigerator Model TT21AKXKQ03 and drain plug freezes causing water to drip into the refrigerator.


Something has plugged the drain tube, or has pinched it in the back rear of the fridge (yes the refrigerator is going to need to be pulled out so you can get behind it). Sometimes its just pinched on the rear bottom, othertimes something has gotten caught inside the hose. Sounds dirty, but find the drain hose on the rear of the fridge, after the frozen iceburg has thawed out, blow into/onto this hose. If you dont want to put your mouth onto the hose, alternative is compressed air. Hope this works! Please rate me. Good luck!

Liking water front door


You need to remove the panel inside the freezer compartment to access the evaporator rain line. Once accessed,you will see a drain hole. That drain has a hose leading to a pan in the back of the refrigerator; this drain is plugged an causing water from defrosting ice to drain to the pan in the back of the refrigerator. You need to unstopped that drain hose with compressed air and not chemical.
If you have any probem removed the panel inside the freezer, removed the cardboard panel to access the drain hose. Grab the hose and blow compressed air into it. Please note that you will be blowing back into the freezer compartment, and some cleaning will be necessary. The drain hole will then be opened.

How can I thaw frozen heater coil hoses?


If your heater core hoses are frozen you should immediately drain the coolant out of your radiator and engine and refill it with the proper mixture. Your lucky if your heater core lines are the only thing that froze, it could have popped a freeze plug or two out of the block. You could use a hair dryer or heat gun if you need to unfreeze it quickly.

Freezer thawed, fridge leaking. Our refrigerator


Without a type of Freezer, I take it it's a froze free type ? Check the drain for food clogging it or the drain pan and hose to it ( may have a hole in pan or hose. Wrap everything but be sure to clean the unit from food that lays at the bottom .

Frozen drain line from top freezer to drip pan


Hi, Remove everything in the freezer. Get as much ice out as possible with out using sharp object. You will need to remove the rear evaporator panel inside the freezer and locate the drain hole below the evaporator. The safest way is to use a hair dryer. Once you can get to the drain hole and get the ice down inside the drain thawed (a few glasses of hot water usually gets the job done) Try and run a wire (I use a hose or biasting seringe) and get that drain hole flushed out real good. Sometimes it takes 45 minutes or so. After that is cleaned out, put the rear panel back on and you should be all set.
I hope I have helped you. Please let me know if I can be of more assistance.

Thanks
Vic
