Hi... Yes you will have... normally the self-defrost fluids exits the fridge through a tube at the back of the fridge... you will see a drain hole if you look (this can get blocked and if so... water will come out via the door into a puddle) this tube drains into a sort of tray which sits on the hot compressor... where it is supposed to evaporate.

Proline fridge

Do not tighten down the hinges on the top of the unit, until it is just where you want it. They have a very large range of movement to allow for the potential of a refer box becoming out of square.

When you got what you like, then crunch down on the screws on the top of the unit.

Pilot buttom broken off of american hot water heater proline model

The title of your inquiry contains router Westell Wirespeed ProLine 6100. Your question appears to be related to a hot water heater. You may want to revise and resubmit your inquiry so that it is placed in the correct water heater section as the router section appears to be the incorrect place.

How do you transport a fridge?

Upright and empty, take out everything you can, even shelves. And while moving it wear steel toed boots.
Sometimes rubber palmed gloves help, sometimes they don't.
Clean the fridge outside so there is no grease on it. Oil residue from cooking makes them slippery and impossible to control.
If you have access to a small cube van or truck with a headache rack strap it to the walls of the truck or to the rack (Upright).
If you have to move up a stairwell tape quilts and towels to the banister.
Tie the electrical cord and tape it to the motor. The cords tend to come loose and wrap around your legs while going up stairs.

The lift. (not all upright)

Tall man at the back of the fridge.
Shorter guy at the front.

Shorty pushes the fridge towards tall guy tipping it back towards tall guy.
Tall guy puts a foot at the back edge of the fridge and pulls.
Tall guy holds it arms mostly straight holding near the top of the back of the fridge.
Tall guy keeps it balanced as shorty changes grip.
Shorty bends down at knees and grabs the edges at the base of the fridge.
Agree to lift and shorty stands up.

Tall guy walks backwards and leads the way.
Shorty has the heavy end and has to push 90 percent of the weight up the stairs.

It's no fun being shorty.

Communicate your movements.
If you shift that much weight unexpectedly you can seriously hurt your partner.
It's called "Tweaking" someone.
If you're losing your grip SAY SO!
"I'm losing it!"
If you need to re-grip SAY SO!
"I need to get a better grip."

Rest anywhere you have to, rest every third step on the stairs but don't let it fall on your partner.

If you have furniture moving straps or a duck dolly use it.
But if you know what those are you already know how to move a fridge so I stuck to a lift without equipment.

Both of you will have to shift your grip to make it through doorways.

Last of all clear a path and measure every door frame before you start to move the fridge.
Doors may have to be removed, Light fixtures might have to be taken out of hallways or stairwells, screen doors might have to be unsprung, lock up the kids and cats and dogs too.

After you've moved it to it's new location let it sit for 12 hours before you plug it back in.
The oil that crawled out of the motor housing has to drain back down.
Have the beer after you finish not before you start.

Good luck with the fridge move

I have water pooling in the fridge section of my Proline fridge freezer. There is no visible drainage channel that I thought might be blocked. HELP PLEASE!

The drain in the freezer behind back lower panel
needs opening. You can see it at the bottom of the back panel
underneath the evaporator coils. (The cold coils)
Run Hot water in the drain until it clears or use a hairdryer.
When the defrost melts the water it goes down the drain
If the drain is clogged with Ice or ? it overflows into the ref.
Run Hot water in the drain until it clears or use a hairdryer.
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath
