SOURCE: Smell

Your whole freezer bottom is probably removeable. you mat have to remove the doors and the separator bar in front to get this out. Then you will be able to access the spill.

There is a leak somewhere in your defrost drain. Most times this is caused by a blockage near the area of the leakage. Below is a link to a very informative way to help you resolve the problem. Thanks.

Yes your model has 2 drip trays. 1 is below the evaporator inside the freezer and behind the back wall covering the evaporator. The other is below the refrigerator next to the compressor where the condenser fan heats the water and returns it back to the air inside your home. Thanks, Sea Breeze

I have an SA12059 Windchaser portable a/c. After using it and rolling it around, the top condensate tank drips lots of water. I tried to drain the bottom tank via the hose, but the top tank doesn't seem...


There is not actually a top tank, just a drip tray with little drain holes that become easily clogged. After removing the rear cover of the unit and cleaning thoroughly, you can use a can of air (like the ones to dust pc's) wth the little straw attachment to try to clear te clogged drain holes in the tray below the evaporator. If your unit froze up condensate may have overflowed into the fan area. Let the unit defrost, and run it in fan mode for awhile to dry this moisture out.

Unit is leaking water from somewhere


Upper drip pan drains clogged, water overflowing onto the floor.

Remove the rear cover of the unit and clean it thoroughly wit a vacuum. Let the unit fully defrost. Use a can of Air duster (for pc's) with the little hose on to clear the drain holes in the upper drip tray. Clean dirty evaporator fins with windex and toothbrush, flush with water. Excess condensate should now drain into the bottom tank instead of overflowing ontot he ground. Be sure to drain the bottom tank thoroughly. With the unit cleaned it should now vent condensate out the warm air duct rather than letting it build up in the unit.

Hotpoint model #ctxy14epjrwh slow water drip from inside of the refrigerator. inside the top of the frig, center, there are several components that appear to come down from the freezer. the lowest one...


That water is from the melting frost of the automatic defrost cycle. Their is drain in the freezer behind the back wall under the evaperator coil that is blocked, so instead of defrost water draining it's pooling in the freezer or in some case espically on models with the freezer on the top,the water is leaking from the freezer vents into the fresh food compartment.
The way to clear the drain is remove back plate and remove all ice build up and GENTLY make a small hole in drain through then totally flush w/warm water.
The exact location of drain is under the coil behind back freezer plate in the centeroldtech2332_52.jpg

Water draining into frig


you have a blockage in the drain tube, remove panel back of freezer..you will see ice build up...melt ice with hair dryer/heat gun...you will see a pan below evaporator...melt ice in pan...dry water up in pan with paper towel...now you should see a hole in pan that leads to drain tube...pour some hot water in pan..wait a couple minutes..mop up water and repeat this step 2-3 times....once you have done this find some flexible curatain wire or electrical wire..poke down the hole until you see the water drain..now it is clear..put back panel back and you are good to go. the reason you see water in the fridge is because the water has been leaking down the vent instead of the drain hole...If you need any further assistance please feel free to comment again. good luck!

Freezer ice


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

How to empty drip pan


At the back of the food compartment where the water collects ,there is a drainage hole, this is blocked up,poke a long thin piece of wire or similar and poke it down the hole, this should clear the blockage,
If the water does not drain away then you need to go the rear of the frig and clear the rubber or plastic hose that you will see on the top of the motor compressor. this should solve the problem.
Plz rate this solution.
Thanks. and merry xmas.
