Question about Westinghouse Refrigerators
Bought a Westinghouse Upside-Down Refrigerator some time ago,but shortly after,the plastic glider on the the vege.crisper snapped.Supa-glued it back on,but in a short time it broke again.Is there any way to fix this problem for good?Maybe if the crisper/keeper was made all in one piece,instead of a separate piece of plastic that is glued together to form the glider,it would be more efficient!The Model Number is BJ434.Would appreciate any feedback!Thank you!Layla Ostenfeld.

Replacement is the option and the drawer is one piece not a glued guide== the wear and tear actually cut the plastic lip off

this particualr refrig is notorious for this. check your controls ( your freezer control as well set to 4 max) any higher and the refrig is running longer, generating more cold then needed, behind the left hand crisper is a few slots( the fresh air return) by default the coldest spot in refrig, i usuallly would reccomend to my cust not to keep high water or thin walled vegies in there such as carrots cukes tom and lettuce, perfect beer and fresh /frozen defrosting meat to be though, if you ever looked at the newest bottom freezers they've pushed up the drawers and added a deli pantry, running the width of frig

My Whirlpool fridge had water droplets falling onto all three shelves and pooling unter the crisper drawers. I solved the problem by clearing the ice-clogged drain in the freezer.
In Whirlpool model ET21UM, the condensation drain hole is located directly behind the freezer. To access the drain hole, remove all your frozen items and place them in a large picnic cooler. Notice that the floor of the freezer is basically a large plastic tray fastened by two small bolts. Unscrew the bolts with a wrench or ratchet and remove the plastic tray. At this point you will probably see that water has seeped under the tray and created a mini ice rink on the bottom of your freezer. You can tap the ice lightly with the handle of a screwdriver to break it up. Once it's broken, toss the ice into your sink, or put it in a plastic bag and store into your cooler to keep everything cold.
Once the ice has been removed from the freezer floor, you should be able to see a metal drip trough in the back under a false wall hiding the condenser coils. It's a little tougher to remove the ice from the drip trough with the screwdriver method, so you might want to use a hair dryer. After a few minutes with the hair dryer, you should be able to remove most of the ice by hand. You can remove any water with a sponge or turkey baster. The only ice left will be a plug of ice in the drain hole in the middle of the drip trough. Heat up a cup of water in the microwave and carefully pour it into the drip trough. If the drip trough is hard to access, you might need to use a funnel. The hot water should melt most of the ice in the drain hole. If it pools in the drip trough and doesn't drain, use a sponge or turkey baster to remove the water and add hot water again. A small length of wire or a pipe cleaner might help clear any other obstruction in the drain hole. When the drain is clear you should hear water flowing through it. Dry off the floor of the freezer and return the plastic floor tray to it's spot and fasten with the two bolts. Remove any water that has pooled in your refigerator and you're done.

This sounds like the problem I responded to for another user. I hope it works for you.
I got this when the J-trap on the back of the fridge was blocked, not allowing condensation to properly drain into the drain pan.
I solved this problem by pulling the black drain tube off the J-trap (you may need to loosen the holding clamp at the bottom of the tube), giving the J-trap (it's about 2" round) a slight twist to release it from the sheet metal, and carefully pulling it out. Be careful as the sheet metal is sharp. You will see a 1" PVC tube end that fits inside the J-trap. This must be inside the trap when reassembling.
Flush out the J-trap and reassemble.

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper)
between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it.
Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it
to run. There is a flap you adjust with
the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust
the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.
