How to clean the Drip Pan?

Our drip pan has some water in it, and a lot of crud sloshing around or stuck to the pan. However, there doesn?t appear to be any way to get it out to clean it. I am concerned about the drip pan getting smelly, or causing other health issues. (mosquitos, Legionaire?s Disease, etc?!) Does anyone have a solution? Martin

    Additional comment from original poster:

    This tray cannot be removed by simply taking off the bottom grill. The problem is that it is an odd shape, about 6 ? wide at the front, and then, about 6? or so back, it is about 10? wide. The door hinge and various hoses and wires, and a big part of the frame behind the left end of the grill block the try from coming out the front. Likewise, there is various hardware solidly mounted behind the tray which prevent it from coming out the back.

    I am close to concluding the a ?sponge-on-a-stick? may be the best approach.

    hey do not come out easy. I have lifted the the Refrigerator up and put wooden block under them to get access to them. and slide them out from under... but you will always get some water and goo in the tray. as that is what it is designed for.

I cleaned out the water from the drip pan, cleaned out the pipe and it started working. Now the drip pan is full again and the furnace is not working

something has to come out the other end. where do you think the water is going? it has got to go outside, if not it will end up in the condensate tray and shut off your unit if you have a float switch.

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.

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.

While there isn't a "FIX" for the poor design, you could try a work around to funnel the condensation off the compressor tube into the drain pan. Sometimes you can wrap 14 gauge solid core wire around the compressor tube and put the end in the drain pan and it will work and sometimes you have to put pipe insulation around the tube to a point that you can funnel the water into the drain pan. Each unit is a little different so I can't give you the exact routing you should use but if you are creative you can make a drip wire or a drip chute to funnel the water to the right place.

There is a drip pan bit the middle is open to allow air flow through the coil and into your ducting. If the drain for the drip pan is clogged it will fill up and overflow onto your furnace and then to the floor.If that is what is happening then clean out the drain tube running down the front of the furnace and it should empty the drip pan and solve your problem.

You also need to have your furnace checked for water damage in the electrical components, if these have gotten wet then you run the risk of a fire. Please consider calling an expert in your area to inspect your furnace and make sure the drain line is clear.

Hello, most window units to not drain the condensate, the fan blade picks up the condensate and pushes it on the condenser, since the condenser is hot it evaporates the condensate. That is the sloshing sound you are hearing and is normal when humidity is high.

In most refrigerators there is a drip pan underneath that captures condensation and allows it to evaporate. Possibly your drip pan is missing or improperly installed so that the condensation is dripping onto the floor. Check your manual, or find one online. Usually you just have to remove the grill from the bottom of the fridge to get access to the drip pan.
