The problem is the thermostat, not the drainhole. The thermostat should stop the compressor when a setpoint temperature has been reached, this gives the unit a chance for a small defrost.

SOURCE: fridge drain not clearing

Try clearing it a little better. Use some kind of pipe cleaner then flush with hot water. Good luck

Defrost the fridge. I recommend at least 24 hour period, it's normally quicker. After it has defrosted empty the tray at the back by simply unscrewing the tray and removing the little black rubber tube. To test that it has totally defrosted pour coke down the drain inside the fridge with the tray back in, this should filter into the tray. Clean the tray again and insert black rubber tube and tighten screws again, job done.
I had the same problem but it was all sorted within 16 hours as it defrosts quickly.

SOURCE: liebherr f/f, drain gully is retaining water, drain hole is clean

the fridge probably isn't quite level - or tilt the side that is holding the water slightly so it down to the drain hole - 1/8" could make the difference

SOURCE: Frigidaire upright fridge freezer.The drainage

Yrur model number is missing the last three digits.... I will use FRT21H8CB1 as the example model number.
You need to do a total manual defrost with a catch basin and comprtment drain cleaning.
- Unplug the unit
- Remove fgreezer contents
- Direct an exteranl fan into the freezer compartment for just over 2 hours to ensure the compartment drain tube has defrosted.
- During the defrost period... open the fiberboard panel on the lower back of the refrigerator and clean out everything, Condensor coils, catch / drip pan (Called pan-defrost for parts), and the END of the compartment drain tube.
Model reference:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5158190&diagram_id=1311449#d1311449

Defrost pan Item 26 of above link needs to be cleaned.
Coils Item 1 need to be cleaned
Fan blade Item 61 needs to be cleaned.

The evaporator trough, drain item 17 also should be clear. Here is what you can do without tearing everything in the back of the freezer apart. Once your sure the comprtment drain tube (no item number / bulk hose) is clean on the end. Use the exhaust of a Vacuum cleaner and the hose to force air UP through the drain hose and float out any debris from the trough drain. Have a 2nd person listen for air flow into the freezer compartment if possible. The biggest problems with freezer compartment drains is the END of the hose at the defrost pan underneath the unit clogs up and then the compartment drain hose just loads up with scum. Then the freezer stops draining and you have the symtom your describing.

After the manual defrost and cleaning return the unit to normal service.

Having said all of that... if the refrigerator then freezer starts warming up in 3 - 4 days... you may have an automatic defrost problem causing the icing. I.e it is not defrosting so the evaporator eventually ices over and forms an ice block in the back and bottom of the freezer compartment. Usually if there is an ice block that forms you wil hear the evaporator fan striking the ice build up.
If this is happening... for sure there is an automatic defrosting problem and your stuck doing a manual defrost ever 3 - 4 days until repairs are complete.

One more note.. if there is NOT any compartment drain tubing visible... your unit may port evaporator tray water down the back of the fresh food compartment to the defrost pan under the unit... just clean everything that serves as a drain function best you can during the manual defrost and cleaning process.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

I have water dripping down the back panel inside the fridge-it is constant. I wipe down the inside back wall, but hours later the water is back. The fridge appears to have a "channel" for this water


with out knowing name brand an model# i would say it sounds like there is a drain tube missing from the upper patr or freezwr area to the drain hole at the rear bottom . there is a drain pan under the refridge which catches this water then it evarperates. it also cab that the proper drain is pluged or blocked with algie which is comon try a little bleach to clean out the drain area

We don't have access to the back of fridge as it is fitted. what happens if we put bleach or milton into the drain-hole?


You can pour a 50/50 mix of bleach and water down the drain hole, but I wouldn't stop there. If you take off the front grill of the refrigerator, you will see the condenser coils with a tray under it. This is where things from the drain hole ends up. If you have a small long handled brush you might be able to clean it out.

We have a hotpoint RLA 34 ( MICROBAN ) FRIDGE . water keeps seeping into the bottom , under the crisper box tried turnining temp down , made sure it's level , no blocked drainage hole . door shuts tight...


You said no blocked drainage hole, where was the drainage hole that you checked located? Did you pour water down this drain, and furthermore did you check that the water you poured into the drain flowed into the condensate pan on the outside of the fridge? Unless you have a problem with an ice maker leaking water, it sounds very much like you do have a blocked drainage hole, otherwise known as a defrost drain. the drain system begins underneath the evaporator coil inside the freezer, this is where the water that is collected in the defrost cycle flows into a drain tube that leads the water down to the condensate pan. The best and safest way to clear out this drain is to blow it out with compressed air, after you remove any and all ice at the beginning of the drainage system, in other words, the hole located underneath the evaporator coil.

For several days now we have been experiencing a stagnant cheesy smell that seems to be coming from somewhere in our Liebherr fridge. I have really cleaned out the interior but the smell is still...


hi hazel,not sure about this particular model but if you have a drain hole inside on the back, syringe out with clorine bleach(the smell will go in about 30 mins).sprinkle bicarb inside to absorb any residual niffs.
hope this works for you
geoff.
