Unplug the power to the machine. Remove a bottom back cover and use a bristle brush with strokes in the same direction as the fins are. If the clog is stubborn, take the fridge outside and hose the coil clean with a garden hose while not pointing the water at the motor or electrical. Let it dry and put it back together. Keep the fridge upright, a little tilt is ok but not lay it on its side.

Coils on 'fridges are either underneath or on the rear, so you need a good vacuum cleaner with a crevice tool.

Water collecting in bottom of refrigerator side under meat keeper. Wards model no. HMG 2290


Check to see if your ice maker is not leaking water. Otherwise, the problem might be a clogged drain in the freezer. Need to remove the back cover in the freezer to check that the drain is clear. If it is clogged, try removing any blockage that you see and push wire down the drain tube to clear any blockage in the tube.

There is a pipe with hot gas running through the middle wall to keep the gaskets dry but if itgets to hot probably the condenser coil behind the fridge is dirty ,unplugged it snd brush all the dust and dirt off .That willlower the temperature in the middle wall and it will cold better.

The center divider in our hmg-2170-4 is very hot. the fridge is cool and the freezer is cold, but the center is hot enough to burn you if you are not careful.


Your condenser fan motor (down by compressor) is not running. Either bad motor or something has blocked it. Also possible that condenser coils are filthy.

Hi there!

Was the bulb blown that you removed?

If not, it may be the contact switch on the door. These usually are just a press fit, sometimes needing a screwdriver in a slot to release it.

Hope this helps you. If it does, Please take a moment to rate your problem fixed with Fixya! Thanks.
