Water on floor


The hose that goes into the drip pan to defrost the refer is plugged with stuff.
take the back off and see the hose connection.A coat hanger works well.Usually a 1/4" hose.
Also see where the bottom of the freezer drains into the drip pan.That may be plugged,also.
The temp may be set too low and the condenser is frozen up,leaking water into the floor.Just ice stuck to the condenser.
Possible that the condenser FAN stopped turning. That will ice up and melt at random:
see/hear that the fan is working.
If stuff gets into the fan,it will ice up,melt and make a mess on the floor.

Inside fan runs but freezer is hot

Beko fridge freezer not working


Hi,
The first thing I would do is to check the compressor and the condenser fan. Remove the cover on the back of the fridge and check how hot is the compressor? Is the condenser fan turning well? Also check the condenser coil under the fridge, it is very possible it needs cleaning.
If the condenser fan is not working properly then it has to be replaced.
If the condenser fan motor is fine and the cleaning did not help then the sealed system is low on Freon and in such case you need a certified technician to fix a leak and to charge the system.
Good luck in solving the problem of the freezer...

Freezer not cooling, food is defrosting, model# 28042 sears ask me to clean off the coil where is the cooling coil located


To answere your question : The cooling coil is called the evaporator and is located behind the backwall of the freezer.....But this is not what they want you to clean. They want you to clean the condenser coil, witch is either the big black coils on the back of the unit or they are located under the unit.

you might also make sure you here the fan inside the freezer. open the door and press the door switch and see if you here the fan running. if you don't, then you might have a evaperator fan motor that is bad.

The next thing you shoud check is the back wall of the freezer have frost or did it have frost on it. if it did you have a defrost problem.

This is where you should start. There are many other things that could be rong.

Water leaks onto floor once a week or so from under freezer

This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.
