Drip Pan Placement

I took out the drip pan to clean it and am having difficulty putting it back in. Does it just sit under there or are there supports I have to put the pan on. Thank you.

SOURCE: I cannot get to the drip pan under refridgerator to empty it. It is filled with sludge and smells bad

Thank willie for helping with one: "Well, it looks like the pan is a seperate plastic pan and not the compressor mounting pan like some of the newer ones are. It appears that you have to remove the condensor fan motor and mounting bracket then maybe the pan will left up and over the compressor, or maybe there is enough room to lift the pan up and out the front over the condensor coils"

SOURCE: How do I empty the Drip Pan

Remove the grill underneath the doors. A flashlight helps, look for a plastic pan, it should just lift out. Some of the older models the pan is bolted down. If you still cant find it, slide the refer out and take the panel off the back, some are easier this way.

SOURCE: Overflowing drip pan under the fridge

for reallybsq
problem could be door seals not sealing completely and hence excessive ice formed on evaporator and excess water when it melts. however, i have found this problem many times with large larder fridges and really found no cure.

for guest.
towards the bottom of the back wall, there is a gulley with a drain hole in the middle. this drain is blocked. clear it with something flexible and make sure water flows away freely

SOURCE: drip pan needs emptying; had repairman out for other issues, now fridge keeps overflowing

The accumulated ice you saw is of course the source of the water. The refrigerator will eventually rid itself of the excess ice and the problem will therefore disappear on it's own after a while. The drip pan is normally filled with only a small amount of water, and that is dried up by the condenser cooling fan under the fridge. The pan is removable from most units, but not without making a mess. I suppose you can make and clean up the mess one time and be done with it.

How do i remove a drip pan from a kenmore refrigerator


The drip pan collects water when the freezer goes into a defrost cycle. Most times there is very little water and the water evaporates quickly. When there is a problem with the freezer or the water does not evaporate between defrost cycles, the drip pan fills with water. If the front bottom of your refrigerator has a grille, you access the drip pan from the front. If there is no grille, access the drip pan from the rear.

Instructions
Rear Access

1 Unplug the refrigerator from the wall outlet. Pull the refrigerator away from the wall so that you can access the rear of the refrigerator.

2 Look under the refrigerator with a flashlight and locate the drip pan. Often when people install refrigerators they neglect to pull the packing from around the drip pan. The drip pan may have tape or styrofoam around it.


3 Remove any packing material away from the drip pan and pull the drip pan out from under the refrigerator.

Front Access

4 Pull the grille at the bottom of the refrigerator below the refrigerator door with your fingers. The grille secures to the refrigerator with plastic clips.

5 Remove any debris from the access area and throw the debris in the trash. The coils and fan under the refrigerator attract dust and dirt. Clean out the area with a lint brush if you have one.

6 Pull the drip pan out from under the refrigerator.

The drain pan under my refrigerator stinks really bad how can i remove it to clean it


The drain pan can be removed by lifting up the refrigerator and removing the four torex screws on the bottom of each side of the refrigerator. Use 2 pieces of 2x4 to hold up each side of the fridge while removing these screws. After removing the screws the bottom panel will separate from the refrigerator and you can remove the drip pan from the panel as it isn't attached by screws. The pan is VERY fragile and removing the drip pan is a two person job. I recommend just pouring bleach into the drip pan to kill any bacteria causing the smell by removing the back panel which will be held on by several quarter inch screws. You'll see the white drip pan on the right hand side of the fridge looking from the back.

I have the qbbq2003 Thane Gas Grill - brand new - finally used it today....how the heck do you remove the grates and drip pan for cleaning? Thank you


You just pull upward frpom the outer edges on the grates and they pop off, then remove the drip pan and clean and put back or use aluminum foil instead of buying the new drip pans and shape it to the bottom under the flame unit of each side and replace the grate over top.

Bad odor coming from drip pan when compressor kicks own[when dry]


I just had the same problem with my kenmore side by side. I have been noticing a nasty smell for the last couple weeks when the fan comes on. My husband just took the whole back of the refrigerator apart and put a flashlight in there. We could see the drip-pan and it was filled with stinky black mold!! It was very hard to remove, but he managed to get it out by taking the lower front (where the filter goes) apart and then he was able to slide out the drip pan and clean it out! Problem solved.....but Kenmore should really make the drip pan more accessable!

Fan blows out a smell from underneath fridge could it be leaking gas.


Hi,
I have the same problem with the odor. I took the back off and discovered the drip pan was full of stagnant dirty water. This place is bacteria heaven. The problem I have now is that i cant seem to find a way to remove the pan without taking the motor out and everything. Any suggestions?
