The rear panel is not removable. you need to clean the drain from inside the freezer compartment.

  • 1 remove food from freezer
  • 2 remove shelving and icemaker if equipped
  • 3 remover rear access cover in freezer usually 2 or 3 screw
  • 4 clean ice out from underneath the coil you will uncover the drain hole
  • 5 force hot water thru drain hole i use a turkey baster or large syringe
  • 6 reassemble in reverse order.
if you have any further questions please ask here and I'll be glad to assist any way I can. thanks Peyton

Water leaks


Need more information
Does the refridgerator have plumbing for water/ ice? Is the water connected? Check that fittings are tight and not leaking.

How old is your machine? Older refridgerator have a drip pan in order to be frost free. Drip pan could be not in correctly or the hose from compressor is not flowing to drip pan.

Is the refridge level?

Whirlpool side by side (106.56692501). Refrig was not cooling but freezer is. Freezer is slowly heating up though. Unit is still running. It just isn't blowing air into the refrigerator.


You have ice in freezer fins. You need to remove back panel inside of freezer, melt all the ice replace panel, plug refridge back in. The ice causes bad airflow to the refridge side, causing to heat up.

Whirlpool side by side freezer ice cold refridge only at 55


My frigidaire has a flapper valve assembly that opens and lets the cold air in from the freezer as required. The frigidaires are known for the flapper breaking and staying open and allowing too much cold air in to the refridgerator side.. Check yours out. Mine has a shroud at the top of the refridgerator. Remove it and look around, I feel sure you have the same problem.
