You need to flush the hole you unblocked with very hot water and make the water flow down the hole like a drain. Once you accomplish this, all will be well......

Frost is building on the back part of freezer. Whirlpool refrigerator model ER2CHMXPL02 and has not cycled on/off for over 24 hours.


The reason your refrigerator will not cycle off is because it cannot satisfy the thermostat because ice is blocking air flow across evaporator inside the back wall of your freezer. I want you to look for a small hole inside the control panel where you can place a flathead screwdriver and slowly turn the timer clockwise until compressor and fans stop. If there is no hole there you will need to lower the control panel inside the fresh food compartment. Here is your replacement defrost timer should it turn out to not be good=> 2314156 Defrost Timer

Once the compressor and fans stop I want you to wait up to 30 minutes to see if the compressor and fans restart. If they do not restart on their own simply turn clockwise again until they do. Doing this will test the timer and cause the freezer to go into defrost. If defrost does not work this way and ice buildup remains on the rear wall of freezer we will need to remove the rear panel in freezer and manually defrost the evaporator with a hair drier. This way we will be able to inspect the=> W10140847 Defrost Heater Assembly

HMG1947 with ice maker. Intermittent problem getting worse! I am getting water on the inside bottom, which will leak out onto the kitchen floor if I don't catch it with paper towels under the bottom...


Is the freezer section cooling properly. If yes, then problem is drain hole blocked in freezer section.There is a water drain hole, which runs to the drain line.But if the drain hole is got clogged by ice, then water will leak from other end and you get water in bottom drawer.-------- try manual defrost procedure.----------

The manual defrost reset procedure is as follows : ----
First unplug the unit from main power outlet. Then empty whole unit completely. Then keep both the doors open. Wait for 24 hours. All the ice collected on the coils and in the freezer section will get melted. Clean the water from the sections. Then Connect the power cord of the unit to main power outlet after 24 hours/.Then set the temperature to normal in both fridge and freezer section. Then check, do you notice the same problem, if yes then defrost assembly board is faulty.But in most cases defrost reset procedure helps.----------- Thanks.Helpmech.

Yesterday morning I noticed that the unit was buzzing. The refrigerator door had been left open and the temperature inside was 70 degrees. The freezer temperature was 20 degrees. This morning, 24 hours...


Hi
You have condesation built up in your freezer whereby the evaporator fan or the vents are most likely blocked off.

Turn fridge off. Empty freezer and either put a pot of boiling water inside freezer or with the aid of a hair dryer try to defrost the freezer. If you are able to remove the back panel on the freezer that would be ideal as you can directly target the frost.
Good luck

Water keeps developing on the floor below the freezer door. The seals are ok and the freezer compartment it's self is fine and doesn't appear to be leaking from there. Any advice would be appreciated....


You have a blocked drain.
There is a condensation drain at the back above the pump with a small tube that is meant to deposit water onto the pump for evaporation - the drain gets blocked so the condensation flows out through the front door. Also makes big rivers of ice at the back of your freezer behind the bottom shelf??
Solution - Dismantle the inside of the freezer - take all the plastic trim outof the back of the freezer with a screw driver - don't worry, it's only trim and goes back easily. Eventually you will see the drain collector (flat V shape) and at the point of the V is a small hole, pour warm water in this till it drains to the pump at the back, instead of down onto your floor at the front. You may need to clean the hole too as it gets gunked up.
You can also help by finding the drain tube above the pump at the back and gently inserting a chopstick or similar untill the warm water empties onto your hand !
Takes about an hour all in all and has been fixed for a year now on mine.

Bottom freezer is leaking water. Water seems to


You have a clogged defrost drain. The problem is fixed by unplugging unit from wall, open both doors, blow fan for 24 hours to SAFELY remove the ice covering the drain hole. If you use ANY other method, you may regret it. Once ice is melted, remove debris that is likely blocking the small drain hole, if no debris in drain pan, direct some high pressure air down the drain to block the debris INSIDE the tubing. Furthermore, its a good idea to make the drain hole in the drain pan larger, as sometimes a bubble of water can freeze in the drain hole, and ice could be the cause of your blockage from that bubble.

FREEZER KEEPS FREEZING UP THE DEFROST HOLE AND KEEPS LEAKING WATER IN THE REFRIGERATOR EVEN WHEN THE FREEZE IS EMPTY NOT BLOCKING AIR FLOW


Good day,
Common problem on Whirpools.
The drain hole is only the beginning. From there it goes to a cup in the fresh food compartment, where it travels thru a boot to the outside of the machine,then down to the drain pan.
That all has to be taken apart and cleaned completely. Just getting it open is not god enough.

As well, even though you can't see it, that hole in the freezer, is part of a large aluminum panel that runs up the back of the freezer coil. Ice will form on the back side of that panel, and cannot be seen.
The only solution is a 24 hour shutdown, unplugged with both doors open. Better with a floor fan, positioned to blow air into the freezer compartment.
Long and ugly, but it works.

Thank you for using FixYa

My bottom refrigerator is not cold. The freezer is okay.


Check to make sure the fan in the freezer compartment is working and not blocked. This delivers the cold air to the refrigerator. The fan should run every time the freezer calls for cold.

does this fridge have a gulley at the back with a drain hole in the middle? if so, the drain is blocked, push something flexible down the drain till water flows away freely
