SOURCE: Overflowing drip pan under the fridge

for reallybsq
problem could be door seals not sealing completely and hence excessive ice formed on evaporator and excess water when it melts. however, i have found this problem many times with large larder fridges and really found no cure.

for guest.
towards the bottom of the back wall, there is a gulley with a drain hole in the middle. this drain is blocked. clear it with something flexible and make sure water flows away freely

Hi amfreerksen,You asked,How do you remove the drip pan from a whirlpool gold side by side?

Most refrigerators today are frost free and therefore have no drip pan to dump!

The condensation is blown over the hot compressor and it is evaporated!
This is how frost free works.

Did you get flooded and the flood water got into the mechanical area below and now it's siting there and stinks? In a day or so it will evaporate away like the condensation.
I think that people in a flood do use 2/3 water and 1/3 bleach in a spray bottle to disinfect, right?

The fridge should be on roll able wheels where you can roll it out and disinfect the floor under it!

In the back on the bottom is black card board screwed in to the back to access the compressor!

If the fridge is back to the correct temperature now it can keep your food cold when you turn of the fridge for 2 hours.
UNPLUG THE FRIDGE FIRST AND IF THE PLUG IS NOT REACH ABLE,THROW THE BREAKERS OF FIRST, DO NOT TOUCH ANY THING WITH YOUR HANDS OR ANY THING
SO then if you want you can lightly spray this solution on the bottom of any pan or what ever you find that has the smelly water in the bottom of the compartment!
If you do not open it!
AFTERWARD LEAVE THE FRIDGE OFF TILL THE SOLUTION EVAPORATES!
it will still be cold for 2 hours!

BUT UNPLUG THE FRIDGE FIRST AND IF THE PLUG IS NOT REACH ABLE,THROW THE BREAKERS OF FIRST, DO NOT TOUCH ANY THING WITH YOUR HANDS OR ANY THING.

I do not know how old the fridge is???
But I saw an interesting report.

Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help!

Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old refrigerator

It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your refrigerator,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your refrigerator is under warranty or less than four years old (three years for top-freezers),
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that refrigerators under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your refrigerator is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new refrigerator.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive top-freezer refrigerator
six or more years old or a bottom-freezer or side-by-side eight or more years old.

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a refrigerator you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.

SOURCE: how to empty drip pan

At the back of the food compartment where the water collects ,there is a drainage hole, this is blocked up,poke a long thin piece of wire or similar and poke it down the hole, this should clear the blockage,
If the water does not drain away then you need to go the rear of the frig and clear the rubber or plastic hose that you will see on the top of the motor compressor. this should solve the problem.
Plz rate this solution.
Thanks. and merry xmas.

How do i replace the cracked drip pan in the french door refigerator


  • Unplug the refrigerator from the power source and remove the decorative vent cover at the bottom of the fridge under the door. Some vent covers are screwed on but many just snap onto clip that hold them in place.

  • Pull gently on the exposed front edge of the drip pan and ease it out towards you. The drip pan slides on runners on each side of the bottom of the refrigerator. It may be full of liquid or debris so go slow and steady and then discard it.

  • Line up the new drip pan with the two side guides beneath the refrigerator and slide into place. Use the flashlight if to make sure the drip pan is in the groove on each side.
  • Clean and replace the vent cover by clipping or screwing it into place. Plug the refrigerator back into the power outlet

    How do i remove a drip pan from a kenmore refrigerator


    The drip pan collects water when the freezer goes into a defrost cycle. Most times there is very little water and the water evaporates quickly. When there is a problem with the freezer or the water does not evaporate between defrost cycles, the drip pan fills with water. If the front bottom of your refrigerator has a grille, you access the drip pan from the front. If there is no grille, access the drip pan from the rear.

    Instructions
    Rear Access

    1 Unplug the refrigerator from the wall outlet. Pull the refrigerator away from the wall so that you can access the rear of the refrigerator.

    2 Look under the refrigerator with a flashlight and locate the drip pan. Often when people install refrigerators they neglect to pull the packing from around the drip pan. The drip pan may have tape or styrofoam around it.


    3 Remove any packing material away from the drip pan and pull the drip pan out from under the refrigerator.

    Front Access

    4 Pull the grille at the bottom of the refrigerator below the refrigerator door with your fingers. The grille secures to the refrigerator with plastic clips.

    5 Remove any debris from the access area and throw the debris in the trash. The coils and fan under the refrigerator attract dust and dirt. Clean out the area with a lint brush if you have one.

    6 Pull the drip pan out from under the refrigerator.

    I had a similar problem with my Whirlpool model 6ED25DQFW side by side refrigerator/freezer with ice maker/water dispenser. Water was slowly pooling under the refrigerator under the freezer section. The defrost drain pipe was not blocked, the condenser fan was running, the drip pan was not leaking.
    The source of the leak was found to be the icemaker solenoid block plastic body which had a pinhole leak.
    To fix requires either plastic welding, or replacement of the solenoid block plastic body.
    To access the solenoid block firstly requires removal of the cardboard cover, located at the lower rear of the refrigerator.

    I have a Whirlpool refrigerator 21TFA that may have a drain problem or a clog. It drains in the evening, but this morning when I woke up, it smelled bad from the bottom of the refrigerator. Any advice?


    Hi and Welcome to FixYa I am Kelly,
    A bad smell from under the refrigerator is a result of either a dead rodent or.. dirt and lint accumulation in the plastic drip pan / catch basin and then the defrost cycle water wets it 2 to 3 times a day intensifying the smell.

    Unplug the unit
    Remove the rear fiberboard cover that covers the compressor area
    Use a shop vac and rags to clean out the drip pan / catch basin. (These can be VERY foul if they have never been cleaned!) Make sure to clean the condenser coils and condenser fan area also. Inspect for varmits / rodents (deceased) with a flashlight. You can wash the drip pan using a rag with vinegar and water then soap and water.
    Lastly... make sure the END of the drain tube that terminates in the drip pan is clean. If there was lint build up that caused a muck pool in your drip pan the muck often clogs the end of the drain line.
    You never know what your going to find under a refrigerator! I could expound but it is not pleasant and only you will be able to discover the secrets of your refrigerators' "underside life." All I will say is.. it is always a... revealing experience.

    Thanks for choosing FixYa,
    Kelly

    Model ET18NK drain freezes up and water runs down in the inside of the refrigerator box when the refrigerator sits for long periods of time, unused. it is located at a vacation home and just used...


    All refrigerators with a frost free freezer go into a deforst cycle automaticly 3 - 4 x a day. As the frost melts it drips into a pan located behind the rear panal in the freezer, ending up in a pan out side the refrigerator underneth, were it evaporates. Debris can clog the line causing the melted frost to back up and eventually drip into the refrigerator. The sure way to clear the path is to remove the back panel (inside the freezer) and remove any forign material in the pan, then blow out the line with compressed air. An easy way may be to pull the plastic drip line off were it comes out of the back of the box and clean/ blow it out from there. The problem with doing it the easy way is that your not removing the clog, just moving it in the freezer pan where it may find its way back clogging the drain again. Unplug the box prior to removing any screws.

    Condensation dripping from top of refrigerator


    The problem is the defrost drain trough is plugged with ice. You will have to turn off the refrigerator, remove the freezer back panel and use a baby aspirator to help you apply and remove hot water to melt the ice. Then insert the aspirator in the drain hole to blow out any thing that may have gotten lodged inside. You will hear the water draining now to the pain underneath the refrigerator. Hope that helps you, good luck!!
