Defrost the frezer and then remove the grill .it has screws and also snaps in plastics on the sides.After this sometimes to get to the drain you also need to removed the back pannel.Always unplugged the unit before do any work.

Ihave a Westinghouse BJ434V-R and the bottom freezer is working perfectly, but the top fridge just stopped cooling, is this a thermostat problem if so howis it replaced, Alan

Is the fridge part a separate system? More likely a fan stopped blowing cold air through from the freezer section. If Separate, Thermostat knob prises off end and you will see where wires and sensing phial are located.

How do I remove the plastic drip tray from behind my Wesitnghouse Aurora Fridge Freezer.

we had a really bad smell coming from the back of our westinghouse aurora. and yes found it to be emanating from drip tray at the back. To remove this we had to undo 4 clips at the base of black motor thingy, that the plastic drip box sits on. Then we were able to lift whole thing a bit ,(10mm up and 50mm out, approx) so we could tilt everything forward and sweeze and wiggle tray out. then cleaned with bleach. also we unblocked hole inside fridge that allows water to drip into drip tray at back.
