Question about Fisher and Paykel Active Smart E522B Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
Before this happened there was intermittently water in the Fridge compartment.
I think I know what the problem is as it happened before and watched the engineer part of the time.
It seems that the metal bit that guides the water into the 'evaporator' gets misshaped and the water does not go into the 'tube'.
I think I could have a go in sorting it if I would know how to take off the panel at the back of the freezer - without damaging anything.
Guidance would be much appreciated.
There should be screws on the back panel but you will have to remove the bottom basket and icemaker. remove back panel and clear all ice from defrost drain trough and tube. Good luck.

The rear panel will slide out from the bottom and will bend as you pull it out to the front. There are screws holding it in. But you may be able to access the drain without taking it out. Most are at the bottom of the rear.
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. If this repeatedly happens with yours, you may can prevent it by taking a bare copper wire and wrap it around a fin near the heater and put the other end a few inches down the drain. The heat convection may prevent it from freezing.
