Question about Viking DFSB483 Side by Side Refrigerator
By chance noticed I had water leaking into my basement. It seems the fridge located directly above it had an overflowing drip pan. Unscrewed the bottom plate of the fridge and found the dip pan and emptied it but am now confused - Does this need to be emptied on a regular basis? If so why do they secure kickplate with screws? Too, I have lots of ice build up at the top of the freezer and some on the fridge. Have put thermometers in both . Fridge is actually often borderline being too warm. What steps should I take next? Freezer has an automatic ice maker -could this be the problem? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I am new owner of the house and did not purchase but I believe it is approx 2 years old.Thanks!
Water in pan should evaporate of its own accord. you may have two faults. first, check door seals to see they mate with cabinet. if seals don't seal properly, excessive air will get in and hence the excess of ice. second, you should not have ice build up. remove back panel of freezer and check if evaporator has excessive ice build-up. if so, this points to a fault in the defrost system
