Question about Refrigerators
Unplug the fridge, defrost the freezer. You can speed the process using a hair dryer at the bottom of the freezer coils after removing the shelves, baskets and the 6 screws holding the lower half of the shield inside the freezer with a one-quarter inch nut driver or socket, then lifting that cover a few inches. Take note of which 3 screws have a plastic washer.
Remove the cardboard cover from the rear of the fridge. Take note of which 2 screws have a plastic washer. Vacuum out all the accumulated dust inside. Locate the rubber drain tube where it descends from the freezer section to the evaporation pan. Disengage the tube from the pan by lifting and flexing it. Remove the cementatous plug of wet dust from the bottom of the tube.
You can poke it out from the inside with a piece of #14 electrical wire or similar gently pushed down from above by curling it over the bottom metal refrigerant tube, but be gentle and avoid damaging the fins.
Alternatively, keyboard cleaning adapter kit (Google Shop Vac Micro Cleaning kit for an example) is the perfect size to suck out the plug from the outside, and the little wands are perfect to reach in and vacuum out the accumulated dust in all the nooks and crannies.
Have a sponge handy to clean up the stream of water that will flood out of the bottom of the hose when the plug clears.
Assembly is the reverse: ease the rubber tube back into its hole in the side of the tray. Install the cardboard cover, tucking the centre bottom lip inside the steel opening, and overlapping everywhere else. Install the screws, with the 2 plastic washers on either side of the water supply hoses.
If removed, position the white cover so the bottom lip is tucked inside the edge of the aluminium drain tray and install the screws loosely. The screw with the star washer goes bottom centre, no washers on the top two screws and plastic washers on the 3 in between.
Mop up any puddles of water, reinstall the shelves and baskets, plug the fridge back in and enjoy!
