Empty the fridge freezer and defrost completely (suggest overnight). The freezer section has a coil behind the back wall normally and what you have described is a frozen coil. Then restart the system. If the thermostat or temporary fault was the reason then this should cure it. If your problem reoccurs within three weeks then you might have a defrost problem. If you do have a problem then make sure you get straight back to where you bought it from as soon as possible a you should not be charged. Hope this is of some help.

My Westinghouse fridge freezer, model WSE6100SF, was affected by a power cut lasting 3 days. It now smells, but not inside. Is there a drip tray under the fridge that collects the water?


yes there is but most are not removeable.... remove the cover in the rear of the fridge, the pan is located around the fan motor that's underneath the fridge... I would try pinesol, bleach or odoban to kill the smell..... good luck

Fridge leaking water


The drain line may be misdirecting the defrost water so that it misses the pan or the pan may be damaged or mispositioned.

Fridge not getting cold...but freezer is working


the fridge gets its cold air from the freezer fan blowing it through small air passages between the freezer and fridge. when you adjust the temperature in the fridge you are increasing/decreasing the amount of air being let into the fridge. Two common problems that could cause the freezer to freeze but not the fridge getting cool is the freezer coil is frooze like a ice cube blocking the air going to the fridge or freezer fan is not working could be bad or froze up due to too much ice. If fan works after manually defrosting problem could be in the auto defrost mechanism. If fan don't work after manual defrost replace fan. Manual defrost by putting a pot of very hot water in freezer with door closed change water foten until defrosted.

My compact fridge does not defrost and ice builds up in freezer section. How can I disconnect the freezer and not use it?


Lynne, the freezer section is what provides the cooling for the fridge, so there is no way to disconnect the freezer and still be able to have the fridge operate.

With the small compact fridges, the only thing you can do is to manually defrost the unit, when the ice buildup gets too much, which can vary, based on how you use your fridge, how often it gets opened and closed, etc.

Some compact fridge models have a small push button in the center of the temperature setting control knob - if your's has one, you can push that to initiate a self defrost cycle. However, you'll need to have some towels handy to collect the water that will result from melting off the freezer section.

There are not many small, compact fridge units that have the no-frost feature of full sized fridges, as it is more costly to build in all the needed components required to have frost-free operation. Not to mention the size of the fridge gets much larger, because of all the space needed to house those features (defrost heaters, electronic controls, ciruculating fans, control vents, sensors, drip/drain pan, etc., etc.)

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

My 11 year old fridge has a slight leaking problem. on occasion i will find a small puddle in front of the fridge and sometimes a little bit of water under the right side crisper but i can't seem to find...


Hi, The drain hole for this model is located in the control panel. There should be 2 - 4 screws that hold the panel up. remove those screws and the control panel should drop down. Flush the drain hole out and check up inside the hole leading to the freezer drain and see if there is ice inside the drain hole.
Most of the time, the drain inside the control panel is the problem.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Freezer works, fridge not cooling but water was leaking from under fridge a few weeks ago, could not find source . Small compact frigidaire unit for dorm room.


Most if not all fridges under $2000 only use a single compressor meaning the refrigeration is provided by venting the freezer air into the compartment. Water under the unit likely indicates the fridge is not properly sealing and moisture is condensing on the cold coils and dripping.

Leaking water inside fridge


With mine I turned it off for 24 hours until totally defrosted. Checked behind the panel of the freezer and removed one stubborn piece of ice. When I restared the fridge it was all good. I have this problem when we have had a lot of humid weather.
