We have an old Whirlpool Frig Type 19ASR85 Model ED19AK1LNR4 - white stuff is coming off onto the floor underneath. Also could this model frig be responsible for our high electric bill?

SOURCE: water leaking onto floor from bottom of whirlpool

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 lower back of the freezer.

SOURCE: burnt plastic smell coming from bottom of frig

This is a sign of a short and should be looked at immediately. A smell like that is a sign of something burning. I could be the start relay and start capacitor with overload. But I would not sleep with the possibility of a fire. I will look over your model and see if I can find what this could be, Sea Breeze

SOURCE: GE Frig model TFX20JRBK ww with icing on freezer

I would suggest fixing it . You only have 2 parts in the defrost system . A timer , and the defrost heater which comes with the bimetal , pt . # WR51X10031 .Most probable , is the defrost heater . You will need to remove the rear inside freezer panel , and defrost the coils with a hair dryer . After defrosting , 2 screws hold each ( 2 ) heater on , ant the defrost thermostat , just clips onto the top of the coils .

SOURCE: Water in refrigerator and excessive condensation on bottles

Your 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.

Frigidaire frig. model#FGHC2331PF7 is dripping onto top shelf and the filter has ice cycles and what temp should freezer and frig be


If it's brand new and leaking, call the place you bought it from and have them fix it. As for the temp settings; there is a center default in the freezer and you should start there, the fridge also has a default which should be OK. If you need it colder turn it up in small increments and give it a day before you make any additional adjustments. The "cold" in a fridge or freezer also depends on how much stuff you have in the unit, and how often you have the door open.

Make sure that airflow is not restricted. I had a frig on carpet and had to put it on a sheet of MDF to facilitate air movement underneath and moved away all the stuff around the outside of the frig.

Fan underneath frig is running but no cold air is coming into the frig or freezer


The fan that is under the frig is the condensor fan(the fan the cools the condenser coils and the compressor. It does not have a direct effect on the chilled air circulation inside of the frig. The evaporator fan is the unit that circulates the chilled air thru your freezer and frig. I am not sure what make model unit you have, but I have found that this fan motor is 90% of the circulation problems i have seen.

Is your problem fixed yet?


Yes, I fixed my problem of the plugged drain that caused the ice to melt onto the floor. Apparently, frostfree frigs have a drain that leads to a pan under the frig by way of plastic tubing from inside the freezer compartment. The drain tube end for my frig only had about 1/8" clearance above the pan bottom. The pan was dirty with an ENORMOUS amount of dust that had collected. So, I had to move the frig out from the wall, remove the back cover at the bottom of the back of the frig. This exposed the white tubing and the gross pan of dust and water paste. I cleaned the pan, disconnected the tubing from the clip holding it in the pan and trimmed about 1/4" off the end to create a bigger clearance into the drain pan.

Make sure the frig is unplugged before you do the job so the evaporator fan doesn't hurt you.

Now, I will have to clean from behind the frig at least once a year.

Hope this helps. Good luck.

Whirlpool Frig


Is that everything in your freezer or just in the fridge. Is this a frostfree model. Often if defrost fails in a frost free model then it is unable to duct cold air to the refrigerator side of things. To fix- turn it off for a day or two.
