To much water from your tray cannot evaporate the water from evaporating tray so you have to dispose the water manually.

Ac leaking inside car

There should be a tube near the bottom of the firewall on the passenger side that drains the water onto the ground.
Check that tube and see if it is blocked up.

Model RF267ABBP water standing under drawer

Most likely cause is the evaperator tray has frozen over. This causes the tray to overflow with the defrosted ice every time it goes into defrost (every 8-12 hours). You can start by pulling off the back wall inside of the freezer,and inspecting the evap tray. You will need a phillips screw driver and a flat head to do so.

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

There is a drain tube on the fire wall that is leaking

this drain tube is designed to drain water that drips off of the evaperator core during a/c operation.even though it is winter your a/c will still come on during defrost operation to dry the air. if you are leaking pure water out of it it is normal. if oil is leaking out of it the evaperator core has leak. if coolant is leaking out of it the heater core is leaking.

My model number 2811 has ice build up on the right hand side of the freezer. the service manuals indicate i need to pull the "cal rod heater down to make contact with the evaporator assembly and silicone...

Diagrams here :

These are the best I can Do with the Diagrams but I can explane what is going on, and possible soloutions.

Your defrost drain is mostlikeley frozen. This is located on the right hand side, just inside the metal cover. When you remove the meteal cover (((evaperator cover or water pan))) you will see the hole on the right.

Since this is cloged then the water stays in the cover or pan and freezes after the defost cycle.

after you remove the cover you will see the evaperator (( aluminum tubing with fins))) and the heater ((( Black Rod )))

When your machine gose into defrost about every 8 hrs, this heater melts the ice off the evaperator((( Hence Frost Free ))) and the water goest into the (((( evaperator cover or pan ))) and flows to the defrost drain hole to a pan under the machine.

They make a after market heater for the drain... it is a pain to install.

First I would try to defrost the drain by poring war water down it and verifying it goes into the pan at the bottome of the machine.

When your done you will need to silicone around the (((cover / pan))) where it covers the defrost drain hole.

Good Luck

What causes freezer to ice up and the refridgerator not get real cold, with all vents unblocked.

((((( In Lamens Terms ))))) The evaperator gets so cold it frosts up. This is caused because freon is compressed and shot out into the evaperator making it cold. There is a fan circulating the air over the evaperator to cool the air in the freezer. As this continues, so much frost can start to block the air flow. (( so what they did, is put a heater in there with a timer so it would defrost the evaperator every 8 to 10 hrs, so the air would keep flowing )) Now if the heater quits working then it will frost and creat a block of ice. The block of ice, blocks the air flow and the air quits getting colder. Also after time the compressor will over heat and shut down untill it cools or burns up.

Model # HTS22GBMBRWW. Appx. 7 years old. Running but the freezer is blowing cool air and does not freeze.

Do you have frost build up on the back wall of the freezer ? If you have a even build up of frost on the back wall in the freezer section then you have a defrost problem.

If you don't have frost build up, and your fan is running as you described. then I would say you have a freon leak. This leak could be anywhere in the seal system, but most comonly will be in the evaperator.

the evaperator on this machine is a litter more dificult to replace and will cost more to have installed than others, The evaperator and the other parts required to install the evaperator will cost about $250 to $350 + Tax and Labor. If the evaperator is bad, I would buy a new machine.

Sorry I don't know this model, so I can only give generic advice on this one.

Most fridges have the cooling plate at the back. Try to keep food away from it, otherwise ice will form on it.

At the bottom of this area there will be a gully and drain hole through to the back. Any drips that form at the back, will drip into this gully, go through the hole, down a pipe and onto an evaperator tray sitting on top of the compressor.

What usually happens is that dust or labels get stuck to the cooling plate at the back, which drips down, blocking the pipe, which then stagnates into a grey stinky soup.....Lovely!

What you need to do is defrost the fridge, spray clean the inside with a multi-surface cleaner, and flush this tube with the cleaner water. A turkey baster syringe may be the easiest way to do this. As the evaperator tray only holds about 1/2 a cupful - don't overdo it.

While you are there, clean the door seals.& dry the interior.

This should cure the problem.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Draining condenser tray

normally the drain pan will evaperate the water as the compressor fan blows air across the pan along with the compressors heat
if you still want to rempve the water you can place a towell in the pan and let it soak up the water remove the towel and it will be gone

if the drain line is frozen or clogged then you have to remove the back freezer panel and with a hair dryer at the bttom of the evaperator coil thaw the ice that is built up in the evaperator pan ouce you have it thawed you can pour water into the evaperator pan and it will run into the drainpan if you pour water into the pan and it does not run into the pan keep thawing
