Check if the drip pan is fixed to the motor or if it's using the evaporator element make sure it is warm enough to evaporate the water.

SOURCE: mice poo in the drip pan.how do I remove and clean?

Normally the pans are simply lifted a little to clear a lip formed by the frame and then pulled forward. If it hasn't been out before (or for a while) it may be necessary to slide a metal ruler or similar under the frame and pan to free it from the floor. They have relatively large surface area and it would take much gunk under it to make it seem immovable.

SOURCE: I have a kitchenaid refrigerator kbfs20et that leaked

Yes it can and it also can confuse refrigerators with electronics. Think it is great you caught on the first time around. I have pictures of that happening to a Samsung and there was Ice in places I had never seen before. Yes if the refrigerator is near defrost and you leave the door open it will continue to try to cool and the compressor will run until the temperature is finally satisfied and the amount of water will be huge and overflow the condensate pan.

SOURCE: the fridge is on but

1.
Read and follow this to find out the problem :


First if all empty the drain pan .

Defrost can be the cause for your refrigerator not cooling problem. To check to see if you have a defrost problem, look in the freezer to see if there is ice build up on the evaporator cover. (The evaporator covers are either in the back of the freezer or on the bottom of the freezer).
2.
Fans not running will cause the fresh food and the freezer sections not to work. If the condenser fan (the one under refrigerator) is not working, the compressor will cut off on the overload. If the evaporator fan is not running, there will be no airflow to the freezer or the refrigerator. First walk up to the refrigerator and listen to see if the fans (one in the freezer on one under the bottom) are running. If one is running and the other is not then get to the one that is not running and see if something is blocking it. If there is nothing blocking it then replace it. (Note that some refrigerators cut off the fan inside the freezer when you open the door so be sure that the door switch is depressed when performing this test).
3.
On a top-freezer when the drain stops up water will back up turning to ice and eventually filling the air ducks with ice blocking airflow to the fresh food section causing it not to cool. You will also see a water leak inside the fresh food section. To fix this, remove the evaporator cover, (back or bottom of freezer) and then remove all the ice. Once all the ice is removed, you need to unclog the drain. I do this by forcing hot water down the drain with a turkey baser but you can use any squirt bottle, I have even used the water hose. Once the drain is clear, mix water and baking soda and pour it down the drain to prevent this from happening again anytime soon.
4.
Dirty condenser can be the cause for your refrigerator not cooling problem.. If the condenser is dirty, the compressor will cut off on the overload. (A thermostat that is on the side of the compressor that cuts it off if it overheats). Often when this happens you'll hear a clicking noise about 2 to 3 minutes apart. This is your compressor cutting in and out as it overheats and cools off. Now you need to find out why the compressor is overheating. First you're going to need to remove the cover from the back of the refrigerator. Once you remove the cover you should see the compressor. Now look at the condensing coils (condensing coils are going to be either behind the compressor, beside the compressor or on the back of the refrigerator) to see if they are dirty if so clean them. To clean the condenser I normally use a brush made for this. You can buy them at Wal-Mart. Once clean your problem may be fixed. Leave refrigerator unplugged for a while (20 min. or so). Then plug it back in and if the compressor doesn't overheat problem is fixed. If it still overheats read on.
5.
The start relay can also cause the fresh food and the freezer sections not to work. If the start relay is bad, the compressor will not start and you will hear a clicking noise in 2-5 minute intervals. The clicking noise is the overload cutting the compressor off when it overheats from trying to start with a bad start relay. To find out if this is bad first unplug the refrigerator. Then take the cover off that is on the side of the compressor. Now you should be able to see the start relay plugged on to the side of the compressor and unplug it. Now the best way to tell if it's bad is to shake it. If it rattles, it's bad and needs to be replaced. If not, most of the time it's ok. But rather than saying the compressors bad, you might want to replace it anyways because it don't cost much in most cases (less than $25). If you replace it and it doesn't work then the compressor is bad and you'll need you call a repairman. (Note that compressors are very costly and are normally not worth fixing).
6.
If your refrigerator is stuck in defrost, this can be the cause for your refrigerator not cooling problem. Just simply turn the defrost timer a ¼ turn. Defrost timers are normally located in the fresh food section near the controls or at bottom behind kick plate. If the refrigerator comes on replace timer. If your refrigerator is newer, the timer may be electronic; therefore, you can't do this. But it can still be your problem, although I haven't seen this often.
7.
The cold control can be the cause for your refrigerator not cooling problem. This is the least likely of all the problems but happens sometimes. Turn the control up all the way and tap on it. If the refrigerator comes on then replace cold control. If it still doesn't come on, it may still be bad. You can check it by first unplugging the refrigerator and taking the control out and test it with an. ohmmeter Unplug the wires and see if you have continuity between the terminals, if not replace control.
8.
Some newer refrigerators have a main control board and this can be the cause for your refrigerator not cooling problem. This can be hard to diagnose if you don't have a wiring diagram or don't know how read one. I can't help you because I would need a wiring diagram of your refrigerator to diagnose a main board

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.

There should be a decorative kick panel underneath that will snap out revealing the drip pan which will then slide forward and out to pour the water off.

I have a Intertherm Heat Pump system in my Manufactured Home, Model # E2EB-015HB; Serial # E2E0121006692. Condensation is forming on the Coils and the water fills up the area under the coils, drips down...


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.

Leak on left fron area


the defrost drain does not regularly need to be emptied, it will evaporate on its own, if you are indeed leaking from the defrost pan perhaps you have a hole in the defrost pan, or a partial blockage of the defrost pan so the water does not spread throughout the whole pan call a service guy or just take off the back panel and look at the whole pan with a flashlight.

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.
