SOURCE: Black tray above compressor is filling up with water on a RLA50

hi there.the tube your speaking about comes from the rear of the fridge down to the plactic tray on top of the compressor...and is used for conveying condensed water from the fridge to the dri tray where it is evaporated by the running heat of the comressor....excessive water can be caused by a faulty fridge door seal....door not closing correctly...and the possibility that your fridge setting is to low....or sited close to a working radiator

Why is "Drip Tray not fitted" message on screen?


If you cannot insert the drip tray as you have said above then the machine needs for you to find a way to insert the tray then the message should go. If the tray has an extra bucket on it for spent grounds then try removing that and just fitting the tray alone.

Dripping water


Mine had the same problem today. I found the drip tray under the screwed on panels in the freezer was full.
There is an evaporative tray above the compressor in back, and feeding that was a drain pipe that was blocked with crud. Removing and cleaning the cap made it flow freely again. Hopefully that fixes it.

Kenmore refrigerator model 795


Hi,

This is a simple fix but will take a little time to correct this. First of all, empty the freezer of food and shelving, ice maker if you have it also. The back wall in the freezer is a false wall, so gain access by removing screws and harness from top left corner. By the way turn off the unit or unplug it!! Now at the bottom of the unit far back you will see an ice glassier in the bottom middle is a drain hole that all the water is to exit after defrost. Well because its blocked with ice the water overfills and leaking into the refer section. Make sure you can use hot water to clear this out but make sure you cleaned out the entire drain system before reassembling this to restore cooling. Once clear you problem is solved.

Good Luck

Paper jam. Sheet printed but didn't pass through the rollers


Hi,
  • Remove the paper tray completely by pulling it out towards you.
  • Now pull the jammed/stuck paper out gently.
  • If you cannot remove the paper by the above procedures,open the printers front cover to access the cartridges assembly.
  • Pull the cartridges assembly gently and slowly.This will come out together with the jammed paper.
  • If jam not cleared,open the back cover and pull the tab outwards to access the fuser unit.Remove the stuck papers here.

  • Hope this helps.Thanks!

Appears you have a drain blockage.
Switch off fridge let it stand for a couple of hours . At the rear bottom you will find a compressor and a drip tray . Above the drip tray there should be a tube that drains water from the freezer compartment. Using a stiff wire try and insert it into the drain tube thus clearing the blockage.

The tray full light stays on even though the tray is empty.this prevent the foodsaver from operating.I have tried unplugging,recleaning the tray but nothing works


I had the save problem with my 3400 series.
The first time i was able to let it dry and it worked alright (48 hours).
The second time even this did not work.
If you remove the screws on the bottom of the unit. There are about 10 and pull it down, you will see the sealer assembly and a small circuit board in the middle.
Trace the wires from the drip tray, there are three of them, red white and brown, to the small white plastic JST connector on the small circuit board. Pull said connector gently to disconnect it.
The unit will function perfectly now, although it will no longer have a drip tray sensor of any sort it will function every time all the time.
All in all this took me about 10 minutes.
Thanks!

Milk which was spilled in the fridge has dripped into the drip tray behind the fridge and has created the most awful smell. Can the tray be removed for cleaning and if so how?


Yes, usually the tray can be removed for cleaning. You will have to pull the fridge out, unplug power, remove the rear access cover. Then you should see the evaporator / condensate tray and how to remove it.

Cleaning drip tray.


I have just removed the drip tray from my fridge freezer and it was relatively easy.

Do not remove the compressor unit.

The drip tray is held in place by a metal clasp which is welded to the top of the compressor. The clasp is a flat piece of metal which must physically twisted to align with the key way in the plastic drip tray. I used thin pair of pliers to grip the clasp and twist it clockwise to line up with the tray key way. The tray then has to be carefully manouvred off the compressor so as not to cause damage or spill it foul smelling contents. This I managed to achieve fairly easily.

Clean out and install then twist the clasp to clamp the tray into position. I don't know what would happen if you didnt lock the tray back in position as it does not seem capable of falling off on its own and it would be easier to remove next time.

Hope this makes sense

External water tank


Dear ziba1--posted the same problem two days ago and it doesn't appear to be on the site yet. Anyway, picked away at this again today (literally took the machine apart) and found the problem to be a clog in the drainage system. This explains why your external tank will not fill and why there is a leak--the drip tray under the compressor is not draining due to the clog in the drainage system. I fixed this simply by taking a narrow device and gently scraping out the drain hole of the drip tray (which is located just below the compressor...the compressor is located on the same side as your air filter). After successfully cleaning out this drain, I proceeded to flush the water out thoroughly with water. Give it a try--worked for me. I had all but given up and had already set up an appointment to have it serviced. Cheers
