We have just had our seals replaced and the tech guy that did it also blew the drainage pipes out with compressed air [ a mini air compressor would work ] and now our fridge doesnt leak and gets really cold , the drainage pipe on our westinghouse was at the rear inside near the light

Model 795.71013.010 drip pan is full and leaking onto floor


Those models have problems with the defrost drain and defrost drain tube becoming blocked. Have you noticed water buildup on the floor of the freezer? See item 105A that is the drain tube.

That drain may have come unblocked because the refrigerator was off long enough for this ice to completely melt overflowing the ice trough seen in the video.

Need a diagram of Amana top freezer refrigerator model #ATB2132ARW My fridge has a clogged drain tube, but I can't locate the drain.


I can't find a diagram but have a different model Amana. The drain tube on mine was located just above the drip pan under the refrigerator. It was a soft plastic/rubber and had become clogged due to something sticky that stuck it together. Caused the freezer water to back up and after cleaning the tube, I had to defrost the refrigerator completely to melt the ice blocking the tube at th top (in the freezer). Sorry I can't help with more info.

Water is dripping down the back wall of my hotpoint refrigerator model # CTX21DA. The water collect at the bottom and drips onto the floor. How old is the refrigerator and what would the cause be for...


The problem is relatively simple to repair. The drain tube in the freezer is blocked so the water will drain down the back of your fridge. Often the drain gets blocked by ice build up. The defrost circuit in your fridge has failed and ice is building up on the evap coil in the freezer. When the ice builds up, it blocks the drain tube. The typical failures of the defrost is the timer failing to advance or the heater is burned out. Being that said it was probally manufactured at least10 years ago, and certainly a new refridgerator would be more energy efficient and cheaper to operate than using a 10 year old model. Whether you should repair or replace it depends on whether you have the money to replace it. Hope this helps you.

Water leaking


the bottom tray/salad compartment will always get a fair amount of condensation because they are glossy plastic(bathroom paint is matt)the only "cure" is kitchen towel under the tray and remove once a week.as for the drain it is normally at the back and does collect a fair amount of "moss"in the tube,pour some clorine bleach down to clear any out.the design of the shelves directs the side/back condensation down the drain.

Water leaking into refrigerator


There are 2 types - the older types where you have a drip cup in your refrigerator extending to the back of your fridge into the wall and down the hose - OR the newer ones where the drain is in the freezer and goes straight down the drip pan. Look at the back of your refrigerator, if you see a tube extending down into a drip pan (on the compressor or next to it) that is your drain tube, if you can locate a drain cup in your refrigerator you can remove it and dislodge anything plugging your drain tube.

For newer or models without a drain cup, you'll have to remove the freezer panel and look at the bottom you should notice a hole, this is where the melted ice from defrost drips into through the tube and onto the drip pan below. Maybe there is excess freezeup ordebris or something blocking out the drain, so the water will spill over to the other opening where cool air passes onto your refrigerator - usually the culprit is excess ice buildup - if it is the case you can manually blow dry that section, clearing up the hole. once done you might also want to insert a piece of wire or long flexible cable to unplug the drain line.

Good luck.

Water dripping within the fridge


Hi, The defrost drain behind the rear freezer panel is plugged. Remove the rear panel and clear the ice away from the drain. Then you will need to flush the drain hole with hot water to make sure it is open.
Some models require an after market drain heat kit.
Please get me your model # and I can look this up to let you know if you need that heat kit.

Thanks

Water dripping into refrigerator from freezer


DRAIN TROUGH IS PLUGGED OR FROZEN. EMPTY FREEZER AND REMOVE LOWER TRAY TO SEE A HOLE ALL THE WAY IN THE BACK USUALLY IN THE CENTER. CHECK TO SEE IF WATER CAN DRAIN THROUGH BY POURING A CUP OF IT INTO HOLE. IF IT IS FROZEN POUR HOT WATER UNTIL IT THAWS, IF PLUGGED REMOVE THE OBJECT.
