Question about Refrigerators
Remove the food and ice maker (if equipped ) from the freezer , and remove the rear inside freezer panel . Below the coils , there is a drain pan which is probably iced over . Start in the middle with a hair dryer , and defrost until you see the drain hole . Use hot water to help defrost the hole . Once defrosted , insert a small hose , to blow any unseen debris , thru the drain line , and into the drain pan .
To permanently "fix" this problem , after defrosting the drain hole , insert an aluminum solid wire ( no insulation ) , or a copper ground wire , into the hole as far as possible , without force , and wrap the black rod above the hole (defrost heater) , about 1-2 turns with the other end of the wire .
When the refrig goes into defrost , the heat will transfer to this wire , keeping the defrost drain from being frozen up again .
