Question about Refrigerators
Recently our refridgerator has been spilling water into the fridge compartment and onto the floor. I think it is coming from the defrost. Is there an easy way to fix it? I'm wondering if ther is a plugged drain line somewhere.
Sounds like you have a clogged defrost drain tube. removing back panel of freezer will give you acess to drain trough, melt away the ice with a hair dryer, youll find a drain hole under there somwhere,pouring boiling water down the drain will clear it pretty quickly( i use a steam machine purchased from the infomercials works awesome, after you clear it and all water drain down tube wrap a piece of solid copper wirearound the heater( black calrod heater right above the drain trough) and stick it in the whole maybe an inch or so. now everythime the heater comes on to defrost it will prevent the hole from freezing over

What's happening is when the fridge goes into defrost water goes thru the drain and is seeping into the crack by the damper which will run into the fridge section. Why? The drain doesn't come down far enough for all the water to go down the drain tube. Frigidaire has a new drain that is longer and will prevent this problem.
