Clogged drain plug


Happens to me too. The drain freezes, freezer floor freezes and then ice starts building up to the point where it forms in the fan area and then the blades hit the fan and it gets very noisy. In my case, the container that is supposed to carry the defrosted water to the drain has a electric wire running underneath and twisting around the drain hole. I believe this wire is supposed to heat up and melt the ice to stop the drain hole from freezing. I believe the heating mechanism has failed in my case and suspect the same for you. Until fixed, this will continue to freeze up every so often. Search for your LG freezer drain heating element or parts.

Refrigerator leaks


If it a frost free fridge it should self defrost every 6 to 8 hours all by its self. If you see ice or frost buildup in side the freezer usually back wall harder to notice if the cooling fins are just under the freezer floor but above the fridge ceiling or better picture it as the fridges taint. Sounds like the fridge is having defrost problems and if it every once in awhile does go into defrost or you do it, all that water flows down a hose and out the back around the compressor. Heat from the compressor or other gadgets evaporate the water. If it only defrost a few times a year it is going to overflow the catch basin. Easy to check some times catch basin or drain hose move check back bottom or remove front cover look if bottom catch basin. Main fault is defrost timer stuck in run, location all over in or out, defrost element around cooling fins,defrost thermostat on cooling fins,wiring to / from / joining the last two.

My Maytag Sovereign 60 is tripping the house circuit relay. If we leave if off for a few hours it can be switched on again and runs for about an hour before tripping the relay again. Last happened 2 months...


Could be a problem with defrost heaters when it goes into defrost mode. Also could be problem with wiring to appliance. Try plugging into separate receptacle and see if you have problem.

I own a Thermador Freedom Collection 18 inch Built-in Freezer Column with Exterior Ice and Water Dispenser Model T18ID80NRP and have had this unit for approx. 2 years as a companion unit to my Thermador...


No solution but just a warning. We had this same thing happen. They sent a repairman to replace the control board. Then did it again. Just before Christmas, the WATER started dispensing by itself. Luckily, I was nearby and heard it or the damage would have been extensive from flooding. They are now 'working on' getting a response from Thermador. I feel like this thing is just a homeowners claim waiting to happen.

Fridge not cooling, motor constantly running


Sounds like low on Freon find the evaporator up in freezer hiding behind back wall or under freezer floor. when removed look at the frost pattern if it is only partial covered in frost , good chance it needs a shot of gas Freon like stuff gas. not sure in your areas what requirements costly in The Great White North. But if there is only a great block of ice from four my best seen it started right where the door panel ends and freezer began 36 hours to defrost. So if ice cube is what greets you Defrost Problems check Defrost timer stuck, Defrost thermostat, Defrost Element, check all wiring in freezer were the last 2 are located.

Water on floor and ice on freezer bottom


The problem is that the drain hole inside the freezer in the lower back wall is clough and the water from defrost doesn't go through that drain to the evaporative pan in the back by the compresor ,you need to clear thatdrain first meltting the ice in that hole with hot water until it goes through then once in a while (every 3,4 months put bleach into the drain to keep it clear .

Ice building up in bottom of freezer of side by side MSD27 Maytag


Your defrost drain tube is clogged up. Remove the ice and look for the top of a drain tube about 3/8-1/2" in diameter. Once the ice is gone, use a meat baster (turkey baster) full off hot water stuck in the top of the drain tube and blast hot water through to clean it out. Do this several times with about 4 cups of hot water so you don't over flow the drain pan and flood the floor

Leak water on floor once a month


This likely a defrost cycle issue. Your drain tube is likely clogged. Get under there and clean it, clean your condenser while you're at it. Cut down door openings, open liquid in the fridge.
