Question about Whirlpool 21.0 cu. ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator with IceMagic Plus Ice Maker
Water is accumulating and freezing in the refrigerator
Remove the food from the freezer and icemaker (3 screws and a plug hold it in place ) . Remove the screws holding the back panel of the freezer in place , and remove the panel . Using a hair dryer , below the coils , start in the middle , and defrost until you see the drain hole . Keep defrosting the hole , until water starts to drain thru . Use a small piece of hose inserted into the drain , and blow thru it , to clear out any debris accumulated in the drain line . Hot water helps to clear the ice from inside the hole also . To make this a permanent " fix " , get a piece of aluminum solid wire ( 14-16 guage , like an appliance ground wire ) about 8 " long . After the drain is clear , where water runs thru , insert 1 end into the hole as far as it will go without any force , bending slightly if necessary . Wrap the other end around the black tube ( defrost heater )above the hole about 1 - 1 1/2 turns . Whenever the fridge goes into defrost , the heat will transfer to the wire , therfore , keeping ice from blocking the drain again .
