Question about Refrigerators
I have a Majic Chef side by side model CSD2123AR and the coil in the back is getting hot but the water hits the small almost flat pan under it and it rolls down into the base of the freezer forming ice buildup and eventually runs out the door.
Any help would be so much appreciated as we need to put a new floor in but can't until we resolve this and financially we cannot afford a new Fridge.
At the back bottom of the freezer there is a drain. It is frozen. Remove the rear bottom panel in the freezer. Break up the ice (I use a small putty knife) and get all of it out including the ice on the bottom of the freezer floor. Run HOT water over the drain until it drains freely to the pan underneath and your problem is solved. Whirlpool makes a heat probe that connects to the defrost heater and sticks down into the drain hole that helps prevent this from happening again. The part # is 819043 ($9-$13). The heat probe is about 4-5 inches long so it depends on how close the defrost heater is to the drain hole. If you look at this diagram the defrost heater is # 12. I have seen people use a metal clothes hanger as a substitute but hanger must be tight around heater. This keeps that drain hole warm. Let me know if you have any other questions.
