SOURCE: Kenmore / GE side by side defrost drain keeps freezing up

Check under the base, the tube must be clear to the water tray, often there is a rubber flow restrictor, this either perishes or blockes, either way remove it, defrost over night and then turn back on, should then work ok within 24hrs. Regards Adbvisor

you may need to clean the drain tube again. the only other place that water may come from is the ice maker if it is over flowing. this however would be very obvious. use some thing like a length of cloths line cable to "snake" the drain after you defrost it. the fastest way to defrost it is to use hot water and a turkey baister. good luck.

SOURCE: Subzero bottom freezer drawer is freezing shut.

Silicone bath/shower sealant should work, the one that smells like vinegar. Also known as RTV.

 

Just make sure the area is dry, clean and free of old caulk.

It'll need to be at room temperature to set properly for a few hours.

 

I have used this sealant on things before that went as low as

-50C. Preperation is the key though.

SOURCE: ice acculumates in the bottom of freezer

Defrost drain tube is plugged. Drain is a round hole about the size of a quarter below the evaporator coils. (behind back wall of freezer.) Take a turkey baster with hot (not boiling) water and shoot it into the drain hole until water runs through it (into drain pan under refrig.)

I have a Samsung srs585hdis side by side fridge and there is quite a lot of water leaking from a cover behind the bottom veg baskets. What would cause this?


The evaporator condensate collection pan drain inside the fresh food section is clogged or blocked with ice. You will need to take the cover off to clean out the drain. Here is a link that shows the breakdown of parts for the fresh food section=> HERE

Water leaks from out of refrigerator.


Hello


Check the drain hole. It gets clogged with food particles:

Locate the drain tubes at the rear of the refrigerator

Push a pipe cleaner through the tubes.

Pour a mild solution of soapy water and ammonia down the drain to clean it.

Check the drain pan under the refrigerator, on the left side, by removing the front grill

If the soapy water hasn't drained into it, it is still clogged

Repeat the steps again until the water drains into the pan

I have a Samsung model RF4287HA French door refrigerator. Has anyone had success cleaning the drip pan located at the bottom rear of the refrigerator? I know that this pan can't be removed, but I can'


Hello Derek;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

In answer to your question, the drain pan is removable. This drain pan is available for purchase. The problem is both Samsung and LG are not service friendly. The drain pan is not secured with fasteners and just lifts up.

However, There is the interference from the seal system (refrigerant) tubing and compressor which prevents you from pulling the drain pan out.

On my service calls with drain pan leakage, I just repaired the drain pan with duct tape an silicone adhesive. Because I could not get the drain pan out with out moving the compressor.

Both, Samsung and LG are the worst service friendly and highest cost for repair.

Samsung RS275. Water pooling under bottom drawer and freezing. What doesn't freeze, leaks through the door to the kitchen floor. What is happening?


Freezer /fridge water/ice in fridge and or freezer

Usually due to CONDENSATION due to bad door seals or a plugged evaporator drain line? Can use a soft flexable tubing and very hot water to clean it out. Bad door seals usually need replacement, but u can use a blow dryer and something to pry it closer to the door wall while blowing hot air on to it. To create a seal, to test for bad door seals place a dollar bill in between the door and wall of fridge where it closes. Then slide out the dollar bill with door closed. It should offer some resistance and not be easy to pull out.
Most all fridges have a drain. Look inside your fridge for a "V" shaped channel with a small hole. This hole leads to a tube and a small pan which sits on top of your refrigerator's compressor. The defrost cycle causes water to run into the channel, down the tube, and then it generally evaporates with the heat of the hot condenser/compressor.
However, if that tube is clogged with food crumbs, particles , debris etc, you will have to clear it to get back to a normal mode of operation. A toothpick, pipecleaner, straw or a cotton bud can often do the trick.
Even a frost free freezer will still ice up at times in the areas away from the heated defrost area and the drain line can freeze. This icing causes the pipe work to the compressor to ice over or sweat and cause a puddle. Or if the drainage has frozen over, it will need to be de-iced. ( usually the line is under the freezer bottom plate covering. Towards the back of the unit) And there is another inside the fridge area also.
Give the freezer a good overnight defrost until it's totally clear of ice in addition to making sure the drain is clear to the pan at the back and then restart the freezer.

Samsung refridgerator freezes due to clogged drain line.


I would look for bad door gaskets. Sounds crazy but if you have bad gaskets, you will let in more moist air and the freezer will freeze up faster. If the fridge is freezing up I would look at the slide from the freezer to the fridge and see if it is stuck open. During the defrost cycle the unit should drain and fill the drain pan, but the normal operation of the compresser should be able to evaporate the water with ease. Look at the door gaskets and the vent. Good luck

Our breezeaire wks4000 is set up to automatically drain. After 2 years, we noticed there is water dripping down the side of wall. when we try and move the unit, water pours out of it.


YOU PROBABLY HAVE A CLOGGED DRAIN HOSE.
REMOVE THE COVER BY REMOVING THE SCREWS ON BOTH SIDES OF THE UNIT(FAN DECK) PULL TOWARD THE FRONT AND YOU WILL SEE BLUE INSULATION, REMOVE THE TOP PEACE AND THE SIDE PEACE OF BLUE INSULATION ON THE RIGHT, LOOK INSIDE AND THERE WILL BE A DRAIN PAN, CONECTED TO THAT DRAIN PAN IS A WHITE PLASTIC DRAIN TUBE, USE A SHOP VAC TO **** OUT ALL THE WATER, CLEAN THE DRAIN PAN AND UNCLUG THE DRAIN TUBE, I WOULD RECOMMEND A SHOP VAC TO DRAIN THE WATER OUT AND TO BLOW AIR INTO THE DRAIN TUBE TO CLEAR ANY MATERIAL CLOGGING THE DRAIN TUBE.
