Re: How do I empty the Drip Pan

Remove the grill underneath the doors. A flashlight helps, look for a plastic pan, it should just lift out. Some of the older models the pan is bolted down. If you still cant find it, slide the refer out and take the panel off the back, some are easier this way.

How do you empty the drip pan located under freezer side of side by side

Older side by sides had a removal drain pan behind the grill located under the doors in front. Remove grill and just pull out the pan carefully to empty. But the newer refrigerators have the drain pan built into part of the compressor mount and are not removable. You can't empty or clean them without removing the back cover at the bottom back of the cabinet. You would need a sponge or towel to dry up the water.

Drip pan full

Check if the drip pan is fixed to the motor or if it's using the evaporator element make sure it is warm enough to evaporate the water.

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.

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.

My water filter was not clicked in all the way so water leaked and filled up the drip pan under the refrigerator and started leaking out onto my floor before I noticed anything was wrong. I put the water...

Hello Terri,
The pan there is for the defrost water that drains into it durning the defrost cycle,that water eveperates automatically so this water too will evaperate as well may take a bit longer since its more but it will evaperate. Also as you know there is no way to remove that pan,but tomorrow it will be empty anyway

I have a compact refrigerator, about 6 moonths old. It started leaking - I assume from the drip pan. But there are no instructions for emptying the pan. Should they be periodically empied?


Check the back of the unit, on the bottom you should be able to see the drip pan, empty it as often as needed. Nothing wrong with that.

Good Day, Rate this poist!!

Do I need to empty the water from my drip pan

the pan is there to catch condensation from the compressor during the refridgeration cycle. the water build up to me indicates one of two things. Either the refrigerant level is low and it is freezing up then thawing, or if you have ice or water dispencer it could have a leak in the line. the only thing other than that is a leak in the magnetic door seal or other insulation causing condensation. hope this helps

I cannot get to the drip pan under refridgerator to empty it. It is filled with sludge and smells bad

Thank willie for helping with one: "Well, it looks like the pan is a seperate plastic pan and not the compressor mounting pan like some of the newer ones are. It appears that you have to remove the condensor fan motor and mounting bracket then maybe the pan will left up and over the compressor, or maybe there is enough room to lift the pan up and out the front over the condensor coils"
