Question about Admiral 26 cu. ft. Side-By-Side Refrigerator
Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use
and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater
comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost
drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the
freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.
Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer

Testimonial: "Thanks, will investigate."
Each time the freezer goes to defrost water flows to the bottom of the freezer this water then falls through a small hole and down into a tray under the fridge were the condensor is the water is then evaporated from the heat of the condensor and compressor.you most likley have a blockage at the hole the hole is located behind the back panel switch the fridge off to allow it to defrost and the pour hot water over th hole to allow it to clear the opening of the hole
