Hi our CB18M/1c/FAN keeps gathering water under the salad trays please advice thankyou


You say it runs down the channels.
Is their a drain hole at the bottom?
If the drain hole is blocked then you will need to unblock it using compressed air or a thin piece of medium flexible wire.
It should drain to a pan near the compressor and evaporaste from
there. Sometimes a loose particle of food can block the drain, usually at the back lower position of the fridge.

How do fix water inside refrigerator under bottom drawers


It may be your drain hole at the back of the fridge has become blocked.

There will be a channel at the back (or side) of the fridge that collects condensation with a drain hole out of the back of the fridge. The drain hole becomes blocked with mould / gunge causing the excess water to overflow and puddle in the bottom of the fridge.
The hole may be gently cleared with a small diameter rod or stick.

Stop water overflowing in frIDGE FREEZWE


-You mean from the bottom of the fridge...? If so, the drain pan or the pan that catch the water must be off from the line. Take a look. If it doesn't sit under the drain tube, fix it (move to under the drain tube). So you won't see water under fridge any more.
-But if it's from the Inside. The drain hole is plug. Check and clean it.


Good Luck

Water leak fridge


The condensation in a fridge is generally routed to a small drain hole at the bottom at the back. The water drained off here normally drips onto the compressor unit (the big black ball thing at the back) where it gets evaporated off, due to the heat the compressor generates. Before taking steps to unblock the drain, you might consider defrosting the fridge first. When unblocking the drain, do not use wire, unless the fridge is switched off and unplugged, you never know where that wire will end up (electrocution risk!). There are two good ideas for clearing the blockage. The best way off clearing the tube is with compressed air, often difficult to get in your kitchen, but don't despair, there could be two solutions in your garden shed. If you have a Weed-killer Spray that uses a pump to pressurise the spray pot, you could use that to clear the blockage (with a bit of ingenuity). Clean the spray thoroughly first, you don't want to poison anything in the fridge, and use the spray with no liquid in it. You can take off the spray nozzle and use the pipe in the hole. If you need to manually unblock the tube, you could use a hard nylon "cord" that is used in a garden strimmer. Pocking that down the hole and into the pipe should do the trick. It's flexible enough to get around the corners in the pipe and when it emerges at the other end it won't electrocute you if it touches a live connection. Lastly, having removed the blockage, put a very tiny bit of "plughole unblocker" fluid in the pipe, that will clean out all the other residue not pushed out with the cord. Good Luck!

How do i unblock the drain hole of my Miele kfn12823sd fridge freezer


Water is supposed to drain down a small drain line to a pan down near the compressor where warm air from the condenser fan will blow warm air over the water and evaporate the water again an put it back into the air inside your home, office or wherever your refrigerator is located. Over time that little drain tube gets slime, algae and a gooey white paste gunk that fills the drain line sides up like If blocked by gunk or ice you will see trails of liquid leaking down the rear wall of fresh food compartment until it reaches the crisper drawers. Gunk is an accumulation of algae slime and just crud that appears from nowhere in a refrigerators defrost condensate drain lines. This is not always the same with every model as you may see frozen ice flowing down the rear wall of freezers on side by sides. Here is an example Click here=> Whirlpool Leak Photo taken by TechnicianBrian. TechnicianBrian.com. And in this photo are several parts listed in photo group #1 were it is most likely running down the wall=> MagicChef CTB1921AR fresh food section. If you still have questions please ask and rate me if I was able to explain this well enough. Every refrigerator is made different so these are examples only. The key is to find if ice or just gunk has blocked you defrost drain. Unplug and then remove the rear panel in back of freezer. We need to see if the water is overflowing the condensate drain tray or if the blockage is in the turn the drain leads down back of your refrigerator. Much more on this page=> Leaking Refrigerators! If you run into any problems along the way of repair please let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Excess water inside fridge


Take a pipe cleaner and run it down the little hole. That is a drain hole and it has something clogging it, not allowing the frig condensation to drain.
