Does anyone know a simple way of replacing the drip tray? When I removed the back the drip pan was half under the fan assembly and then wrapped around behind the compressor with some of the coil line

How do you replace the drip tray? The coil for the compressor is lined in part of the tray. The tray wraps behind the compressor and underneath the fan assembly. Model: abb1924dew

    There was a crack in the tray. We sealed it for now with some tub type culk since it resist water. But if I can easily fix it, I rather just replace it. If it was a Kenmore/Whirlpool this would be a simple fix.

    Hi, Is the tray leaking? If so, your best bet would probably be ise two part epoxy glue and seal the leak.

I agree. I have been repairing appliances for 25 years and heve never replaced the style you have. I would be a pretty difficult job. Because of its function, if the caulk is holding you should be ok. I just looked up your drain pan, the Part # is 12477402. It looks like the refrigerator would need to be tipped up and the frame for the compressor and condencor would need to be taken down.
I hope I have helped a little.

How do you empty the drip tray located under the freezer side of a side by side

Hi, I have a 2003 Kenmore Coldspot refrigerator. It has started leaking water on the inside from the top(where cold air blows) into the bottom of the fridge. the model # is 106. 73192302. The serial # is...


Hello,

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.

Hope this helpout.......

My refrigerator is leaking water underneath it. the ice maker is not hooked up


Is it leaking water INSIDE the fridge at the bottom - if so that is an indication of a clogged defrost drain - if you have a drip cup in your refrigerator, that connects to a tube at the back of your fridge, to carry the water from the defrost cycle down the drip pan at the bottom.

If you see water OUTSIDE your unit, the only explanation is an overflowing drip pan ! Water from the defrost cycle drains and drips on a pan that sits on the compressor or besides it - the hot air from the compressor will cause water in the pan to evaporate quickly - either through a fan or when the pan is placed directly above compressor. If your model has a fan at the bottom next to compressor, that blows the hot air on it, check to see if it's working when compressor cycle is on.
There is no reason for that drip pan to overflow otherwise, it is quite big enough, and the water from the defrost cycle is usually around 2 ounces and should evaporate quickly.

Water leaking from under refrigerator


The drip pan is located from behind the refrigerator. You have to take the cardboard off and unplug the unit. You will see the drip pan with the fan unit on top of it.

Freezer ice


If the freezer is on top then empty out the freezer and remove the bottom and back liner of the freezer compartment usually phillips screws. In the back you will see the freezer coils along with a defrost element. Below these two items u will see a drip tray that collects water from the coils on defrost cycle, in the center of the pan will be a drain hole that connects to a hose that leads to a pan under the refrigerator.Normally the water is collected there and evaporated. The hole in the tray in the freezer is clogged. Thaw it and clean it until you can pour water in it and it goes to the pan down below. please rate me

I have a George Forman GRP46R. I'm having a drip tray problem where the grease is going under the unit and then dripping from the bottom. Some of it goes in the tray but the majority of it goes under the...


Since I accidentally left my drip pan inside the unit and preheated the unit without checking, I am now without a drip pan. The unit really heats up fast and likes to melt plastic. Anyhow, I used a cookie sheet underneath that has a lip around it to catch the drippings. I would suggest that you place your whole unit on a cookie tray so no matter where the grease runs out it will go on the cookie sheet and not your counter.

Ventilation system on Jenn Air CVG4280


My Jenn-Air had the same problem. When you install the drip pan for the burner module, there is a "finger" on the pan that is inserted into a hole in the front of the stove. If you look into that hole, you will see a lever switch. The finger on the drip pan on the burner module is supposed to push that lever switch down and turn the fan off, but over time the lever gets pushed down further and ultimately it does not get activated when the drip pan is installed.

You can either replace the lever switch, or you can try to pull it back into place and tighten the two small screws that hold it in place. Actually, I chose a third option and attached a small, flat spring to the finger on the drip pan.

I cannot get to the drip pan under refridgerator to empty it. It is filled with sludge and smells bad


Thank willie for helping with one: "Well, it looks like the pan is a seperate plastic pan and not the compressor mounting pan like some of the newer ones are. It appears that you have to remove the condensor fan motor and mounting bracket then maybe the pan will left up and over the compressor, or maybe there is enough room to lift the pan up and out the front over the condensor coils"
