Cant find Freezer drain hole

I know that I have an issue with my freezer not draining properly, because it has been developing ice on the floor and dripping into the fridge etc. I have removed the back wall of the freezer to expose the coil etc but I cant locate the drain hole to try and unclog it.
Does anyone know where the drain hole is located exactly in the freezer? any help GREATLY appreciated.

The hole is located in the middle of the coils or on the end. See the slope of the collection tray right under the coils. Might be hard to find because the ice would be blocking it. So take some table salt say two spoon fulls and place in the middle of the collection tray to melt the ice. Will melt fast. Then flush out with small amount of water. Be sure your frig is unplugged and remove the back panel. Let me know if you need anymore help.

I have MODEL#MB1952HEW S 10618291GE my problem is


Hi,

This would be from the defrost drain being clogged. Every few hours the defrost cycle will melt the frost from the cooling coils, the water from this cycle should flow down a drain in the bottom of the freezer, if this drain is restricted the water flows out the freezer onto the floor. See the link below for details on how to clean this out.

Ice buildup in bottom of freezer--puddle of water on floor


this sounds like your freezer is operating properly, except that the drainage of the water when going through the defrosting mode is not draining properly, pooling on the bottom of the freezer and then freezing. Check the drainage hose for the defrost in the lower pan. I would remove everything, place in ice chest, let the unit completely thaw out and then inspect. I hope this is beneficial.

My LG GR 620RW fidge keeps freezing a layer of ice in the freezer. I have totally melted all the ice but I don't know why it keeps doing it again. How do I clear the hose at the back to properly drain it....


LG's design requires a drain heater element, to melt the ice that normally occurs due to the design. If this element fails, the drain clogs with ice, and so does the floor of the freezer, and then the floor in front of freezer.

Ice accumulation at bottom of freezer


Hi, Remove the rear inside panel of the freezer and locate the drain hole under the evaporator coils.
Use a hair dryer and melt the ice. Make sure and get the ice out of the drain hole as well.
After the ice is removed, be sure and flush the drain hole with hot water. A baisting surenge works great for the flush.
I hope this helps you. If I can assist you further, please let me know.

Ice build up on freezer floor.


Hi, If ice is building in the freezer, you have a defrost drain hole plugged. Unplug the Fridge and then remove the rear panel off the freezer. There you will find ice built up in rain. Remove the ice (hair dryer works best). Once the ice is gone, you need to make sure the drain hole is open all the way. A baisting serringe with hot water works really well.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can assist you further. Please rate my answer so I know how I am doing.

Thanks

Whirlpool GD25DF auto defrost drain problem


There is a drain hole in the back of the freezer on the bottom. Get back there with some hot water. Most of the time it is just lime build up. Unless you know what feel back there. Another way is to move the freezer out and from the back side you can see the drain line. It just pulls right off

Water drains internally at back of freezer drawer


Check the drain.

Take the bottom drawer out of the freezer and look in the very back for a drain hole. It may be covered with ice. A hair dryer will melt the ice so you can unclog the drain.

Ice forming in bottom of freezer


Rita, your drain hole is frozen over and when your refer goes into defrost the water is running out into the cabinet instead of down the drain hole. Remove the evaporator cover and poor some boiling water in the evaporator drip pan. This should melt the ice and clear the drain hole....Catriver...post back.
