Question about Refrigerators
There is a small drain hole on the inside of your fridge at the back. That can be clogged or filled with ice. Take a syringe or small pipe and let warm/hot water run through there. You will see the water come out into the bowl that is on top of your compressor at the back of your fridge. If the water starts running through freely, the blockage has been removed. If the warm water doesn't help that much, it might be a blockage, rather than ice build up, for that you can take a tube and try blowing air through the hole. That should help your problem. For some model fridges there are modifications set out from the factories for the service agents. Contact a service agent for your specific make and model and make sure from them. Hope it helps

Your drain line is frozen. Ice thawed by the heater in the freezer normally drains down a tube into a pan on top of the compressor, where it evaporates from compressor heat. If the drain freezes the water runs into the freezer bottom instead of the tube then into your fridge. To solve this remove everything from your freezer and remove the access panel in the back or bottom depending on your model of fridge. Turn off or unplug the appliance. Upon removing the panel(s). you will likely see that the bottom of the freezer is full of ice. Use a hair dryer or heat gun to thaw ice and remove. In the very back bottom you will uncover the drainhole. I usually use very hot water and a shop vac to thaw the drain hole. When you finally clear it you will hear water running into the pan on top of the compressor. Somethimes it takes a lot of hot water to clear the drain. Hope this helps!

begin by removing the grill on the front at floor level. look under there and you will see the evaporation pan. next pull the fridge out from the wall so you can get behind it. there you will see the tube. to unclog it you will have to disconnect it at the top and force hot water into it using a turkey baster.
