My fridge (E440T but I believe the E522B is similar) had a broken fan wire and i had to pull off the rear panel and re-solder a wire. I created a document for others to follow that shows the rear panel removal if interested at http://www.accentis.com.au/downloads/misc/How I fixed my Fisher and Paykel Fridge Active Smart Fridge.pdf

Thanks to all postings on this site - it really helped a lot.

Now I think I have other things wrong with mine,after leakage problem the refrigeration compartment wont cool anymore but the freezer part remains working as usual.Ive nailed this down to one of the following not working... Thermostat / timer / defrost heater.So one or more of these needs replacing.Im just trying to look for a manual which shows the nuts and bolts or the refrigerator (not the "How to use" type manual which I have).

Water is dripping from the freezer down to the fridge. My vegetable and fruit bens are constantly full of water.


Hello lay.... that water is supposed to make it's way through a small hole in the floor of the fridge and down to the evaporator pan just above the floor. Begin by getting a flashlight and then remove the lower grill below the door of the fridge. Look under there with the flashlight to see if the evaporator pan is dirty. If so clean it. Then remove the bins at the bottom of the fridge and find that drain hole. Clean the hole with a cotton swab. Joe

Water leak


First check the seal is sealing tight. To do this use a piece of paper and close the door it should have resistance when pulling the paper out. If all is good your drain is clogged up. To clean this remove the back panel at the bottom you will see a hole about a 1/2' in diameter clean this out with warm water and a turkey baster or a piece of wire if necessary. Be careful not to puncture the tube. The drain tube runs all the way to the bottom to a drain pan. After it is clear run a baking soda water mix 50-50 down the drain to prevent future clogs. Here is a link to accesssing the drain.

Blocked fridge drain


The pan being full doesnt affect the drain being blocked the pans not full anyway its constantly evaporationg it. I use a little air pressure to clear drain lines, than pur a diluted solution of water and a little bleach down the hole water should drain fast and not pool.

Water leaking inside refrigerator


If water leaks inside your refrigerator
(and it WILL, at some point) you can fix
it yourself. My 26 year old fridge was leaking
and I fixed it completely. It is a Kenmore
top freezer, bottom refrigerator model.

In the good old models, one had to defrost the
fridge every few months manually.

In the recent models, the fridge defrosts automatically,
once or twice a day, and the water is supposed to drain
down a long drain tube into a pan located at the bottom of
the fridge. This collected water in the pan evaporates
by the heat under the fridge.

Now the drain tube can get clogged, by food debris and/or
ice. Thus when the water cannot drip through the drain tube
the water drips inside the fridge.

The drain tube is located behind the fridge, which is pretty
easy to take it out and clean. However usually the clog is
not in the long tube but in the connector assembly located
in the backside of the fridge that leads to the long drain tube.

To get to the connector assemble, you need to unscrew and
take out the back panel of the freezer compartment. You would
see the evaporator coil and a tray under the coil where the water
is supposed to drip through. If you find the tray completely frozen
with ice, let it melt off. To speed up melting, you may blow
hot air via a hair dryer. Once the ice is clear, you should see
a drain hole in the middle of the tray. This could be clogged,
which needs to be unclogged.

Next unscrew and open the thermostat control assembly located
in the inside of the back of the refrigerator compartment just above
the light bulb fixture. Once you take the take the cover off (you will
also have to take the knobs out) you will see a small tray cup about
2" x 2" x 1/2" into which water from the top freezer compartment
drain hole is supposed to drain. Pull out the tray cup, and if clogged,
unclog it, clean it and put it back.

To check if the drain works ok, pour some water on the tray
under the evaporator coil (top freezer compartment) and see if it
immediately drains into the tray located at the bottom of the fridge
at the floor level. If it does, you got it; and you can assemble things
back in the reverse order you took the pieces apart.

Needless to say, use a vacuum cleaner with a long suction tube to clean
out all the collected mess under the fridge. No matter how good
your housekeeping is, the bottom of the fridge will be full of dust.
With lot of patience (I mean lots of it) you should be saving hundreds of dollars.

Water dripping from freezer to fridge


Sounds like the drain for the defrost cycle water may be plugged and you eventually overflow water. See if you can find the little drain hole for the coil defrost water and check for dirty/plugged. Try to pour hot water in the drain area and see if it runs out the drain fast (if real slow it's a problem). Make sure the water is also going down to the holding pan near the bottom area/compressor area (that's where it evaporates later). Let me know what you find.
