    Don't know what refrigerator you're referring to, but mine is just a basket drawer with a plastic tray which catches ice and can be lifted out.


    MY QUESTION refers to removing a plastic divider that positions the ice tray and divides the basket.

    The plastic partitions seems to "pop" into place, but I can't remove them. I can't even get the sliding basket out to work on the problem. It seems to run on some kind of track on both sides and seems firmly attached. The partitions look as if they are made to move, but I can't see a way to remove them...

    OK folks, I'll try this ONE MORE TIME... My Whirlpool "French Door" refrigerator with the freezer on the bottom, has a pull out, plastic coated, metal basket that is inside and just above the main pull out drawer. This basket runs on tracks and contains a plastic tray that catches ice cubes and is held in place by some plastic "dividers." These look like they can be removed, but I can't see any way to remove them.

    Does anyone know how to remove these "dividers?"

    The partitions are hooked in and through the basket pieces. They aren't part of the basket, but I'm afraid to put any more pressure on the plastic parts as they seem near breaking and still won't release or move.


    I though maybe someone had specific experience with these parts rather than just "generic" answers and information...

Hi,

Removed two screws and popped loose the ice door. Disconnected the single electrical connector. Slid out the old, slide in the new. It worked like a charm. - Still dissappointed that the whirlpool icemaker broke after only 2 years, but the new one works great!

Thanks for contacting Fixya

Some freezers have stationary partitions. Others have rails with screws that hold them in place. The screws can be undone and partition removed.

ICE FORM AT THE BOTTOM OF THE FREEZER ALL THE TIME, LEAKS OUT ONTO MY HARDWOOD FLOORS AND FORM PUDDLES


Step 1: . Unplug the fridge. You can wait until later but don't forget.
Step 2: Freezer door. It's 4 screws, one in each corner. Just loosen them a few turns - don't take the screws out entirely - it's much easier putting the door back on when the screws are already in place. The door slides up & off.
Step 3: Lower basket. It lifts out, no tools required. Now's a good time to start eating all your ice cream.
Step 4: Upper basket. Remove the 2 screws at the front of the rails, then lift up the rails slightly on each side, to slide the basket forward.
On the plastic pieces at the back sides of the upper basket, push in two tabs with your screwdriver on each piece & pop them up. This will let the upper basket slide out off the rails.
Step 5: Icemaker. Remove the lower screw, then loosen or remove the two screws above the icemaker. Unplug the wire harness where it passes through the rear panel - squeeze the sides of the plug & pull. Lift the icemaker up & out. The water tube will slide out of the guide.
Step 6: Plastic guards.The thermostat guard is the skinny piece to the upper right. Push in (to the right) the tab on the left side in the middle. The guard opens like a door pivoting on the right edge, & pulls out.
The center fan guard has two tabs at the top on each end that push in toward the center, & another tab in the middle at the bottom of the guard that pops up.
Step 7: Freezer panel. Remove the 4 screws in each corner. Push the thermostat back through the slot at the top, & also push the icemaker plug back through its slot.
FAST/HARD WAY: Pull carefully up & out from the top middle edge. Be careful because that sucker is SHARP! The back panel will bend vertically in the middle as you remove it, but it's flexible & will pop back into shape.
SLOW/EASY WAY: If you don't like bending the panel around the drawer slides, you can take off the slides. The metal rails have tabs that push in to release the whole slide assembly, which pulls out forward. You only need to take the rail housings off one side - when you go to remove the rear panel, just pull that side first. To release the upper section (that you already unscrewed in Step 4), left it up, bend in & pull out - the back end has a tab through the freezer wall. The lower plastic slide housing unscrews with 4 screws.
Step 8: Ice Dam. By now you should see the ice problem. Typically the entire evaporator tray is completely iced, along with some of the tubing. MELT IT ALL. Warm water applied with a turkey baster works well. Be careful not to puncture the coils because ... that will ruin your fridge.
Do all the ice melting while the drain is still plugged so it runs out into the freezer floor where you can sponge it up. If the meltwater goes out through the drain hole, it can flood the pan under the fridge - no big deal, just dirtier water & more mess.
The drain hole is near the front of the rear tray in the middle. It's pretty wide (1/2?) & short, only ~2 inches long. It goes straight down into a rubber "duck bill" grommet that's probably plugged up with gunk, that you access from the back of the fridge...
Step 9: Drain grommet. Pull out the fridge so you can access the back side. Remove the screws (6?) around the lower access panel, pop the power cord up & tilt the panel out of the way. The plastic tray under the fan is the evaporator tray - that's where the water SHOULD normally be dripping into & evaporating from.
Behind (technically in front of) the fan, there's a black drain slide into the tray that leads up to your plugged drain. Push the slide aside to see the drain. There's a rubber "duck bill" grommet on the end. Pull it off & clean it - it's no doubt plugged with gunk. Better yet, trim the opening very slightly so the hole is larger - see this site for photos.
Step 10: Put it all back together. Some tips: if you lived hard/fast & didn't remove the rails & rail housing, getting the freezer panel back in place . Make sure you slide the tray rails all the way out before you start trying to put the rear panel back. Bend the panel vertically along the middle so it springs back into place on each side. Again, wear gloves. Once it's in place, don't forget to run the thermostat wire & icemaker tube/plug out.
When you put the the top tray back, make sure it's all the way to the front before you pop the plastic pieces on each side back down, so the gears on each side are aligned in matching grooves. Otherwise your drawer will be crooked & probably won't slide.
Hope this helps. I have a Whirlpool GX2FGDXVY but these steps work on other models too including Maytag etc.

Water in the freezer compartment


I had water leaking in to the freezer compartment of my LG french-door refrigerator (LFD25860). It was getting on to food in the main basket and embedding it in a block of ice, as well as puddling-up on the bottom of the freezer and eventually blocking the door from closing properly. Because the water seemed to be covering a wider area than you would expect from a blocked defroster drain I didn't believe that my problem was covered by the other FixYa recomendations -and it turned out I was right.
The problem turned out to be that the "funnel" that the water flows through to fill up the ice tray was blocked by a solid piece of ice. When the icemaker would call for more water it would flow down the clear tube (with the open slots on the top) hit the ice and spray/overflow in to the freezer compartment.
The solution was obviously to pop this ice out, but that did require me to remove the icemaker from the wall of the freezer compartment. To do this you
  • remove one screw from the bracket on the bottom of the icemaker
  • Slide the icemaker up and slip it off of the two screws with rubber grommets on them.
By the time I got to that stage I had already removed the basket from the main drawer and removed the pull out tray/basket from the drawer pulls (by simply lifting the plastic tab on the right side and lowering the plastic tab on teh left side). I am not sure if you can remove the icemaker without this step, but I believe so.
Also, if you want to entirely remove the icemaker from the freezer there is only one plug with wiring to undo. As I mentioned above, the water hose doesn't not connect to the icemaker, it ends above the "funnel" and the water drops in. So removal is much simpler than you might expect.

As for the cause of the ice block, I am not sure but I believe it was either because the ice maker made too much ise one time and some cubes could not pop out. When additional water entered the funnel it didn't flow in to the ice tray, backed up, and froze in the funnel. The other thought is that when the door was not closed properly while our grandparents were visiting, the ice melted and subsequently re-froze causing the problem.

Deepfreeze not working after defrosting


Hello,
I think the problem happened during defrosting. i will tell the important steps that should be done while defrosting. Check whether you done the same steps or not.. If you done the wrong steps kindly contact the Shop where you buyed and tell them to replace with your guaranty(if available).
Here are the steps. Shut off the power to or unplug your freezer. It can't defrost if it's still running. Find the drain hole near the bottom of the freezer and put a plate or towel underneath it to prevent water from getting on the floor. Open the freezer door and remove all the food. Remove any baskets or other removable items from the freezer as well.Take the spatula and scrape away as much ice as you can from the walls of the freezer. This is cold work; I recommend gloves if you have any. After you scrape away as much as you can, use the dust pan and bowl and take out as much of the ice that has accumulated on the bottom of the freezer as possible. Replace the baskets or shelves in the freezer and shut the door. Turn the freezer back on. Put the food back in the freezer in an orderly manner where things can be found when you want them. Put items you hope to use soon in the freezer above your fridge or in a place inside your deep freeze where they will not be forgotten and used soon.Remove all of the excess water from the bottom of the freezer. You may use a kitchen towel for that; squeeze it into the bowl so you don't get water all over the floor. The water will be extremely cold. Once all of the water is gone, wipe down all interior surfaces of the freezer with paper towels. You don't need to use spray cleaner in the freezer unless there is some type of mess that was caused by food spilling.
  • Fill up the large container with warm water. Pour it along areas that still have a lot of ice buildup. Let it sit for a minute or two. Then take the spatula and scrape off any loose ice. The ice is likely to come off in big sheets Once again, remove the ice and water from the bottom of the freezer. Repeat this process until all of the ice is removed from the sides of the freezer.


  • If you liked my solutions, kindly do rate me ..
    Thanks..

    I have a maytag MSD2754GR, the freezer bottom is all iced


    The drian hole has become stopped up and ice has accumulated in the the drian hole. You will need to unplug the fridge and remove the cover on the back (located at the bottom, 6 screws). On the freezer side there is a drian hole with a rubber 90 and a clear line that runs to the drain pan. Remove line and unstop. Don't not put the line back on yet.

    Now for the fun part, remove the basket and the two bottom shelves from the freezer. Half way up the back there are 2 screws that need to be removed. After removing screws pull up on the top cover to so you can remove the bottom cover. The bottom cover maybe froze to the coils and to the inside drain pan. Break the ice with a butter knife, and remove cover ( do not hit the coils). Now you need to break the ice that is froze to the the pan and under it. Once you have remove all the ice you will see the drain hole, use a small pointed object to break ice that is in drain hole. Now you can put the drain line back on and make sure that the other end is in the drain pan under the fridge. Now reassemble the fridge and plug it back up.

    It took me about 20 minutes to do this.

    Hope this helps.

    I have a Kenmore Elite Trio and the freezer was making a frog sound. I found the solution.

    My model number is 596.75523400. The sound will stop when the freezer is opened. It will stop again when the freezer drawer is open and the light switch is pressed to turn off the light. The ice drawer was full but it had stopped making ice.

    Here is the fix in less than 10 minutes using only a screwdriver.
    • Take out the two freezer baskets
    • Remove the freezer door from the two slide tracks.
    • Unplug the icemaker electric connection at the back wall. Depress the clips on the side of the plug and wiggle it loose.
    • There are 3 screws that attach the icemaker to the left freezer wall. Remove the lower screw and unscrew the top two about ½ way out.
    • Slide the icemaker up so the slots slip over the 2 screws.
    • Put the icemaker in the sink and run a bit of water on the frozen cubes until they fall out.
    • Take the screwdriver and check the water inlet hose/pipe for ice that obstructs the flow of water into the ice maker.
    • Re-mount using the 3 screws and plug in the electric connector. Make certain the water inlet tube is positioned thru the retaining hole before you remount the screws.
    • Replace freezer door and baskets.
