Question about Whirlpool 21.0 cu. ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator with IceMagic Plus Ice Maker
You have a top mount refrigerator and this is a normal problem. What you have is a clogged up freezer drain, and instead of water going down the drain it goes down the air vents into the frig! Here is what you do.
The drain is behind the freezer wall. Unplug the refrigerator first. Then you need to empty out all the food in the freezer. The screws holding the back wall in are generally 1/4 inch nut driver and phillips head screws. Take out the screws and the ice maker if you need to.
The drain is in the back on the bottom, and probably under a bunch of frozen ice. Just be careful not to damage the freezer, but chip away with a flat blade screwdriver, or just use the hairdryer on it all. You will need to soak up the water with a tower, there will probably be a lot. Next, you need to thaw out the drain, this can be somewhat difficult. Simply blowing hot air doesn't do much good, because it's a small hole. I take some 1/4 inch plastic water line and **** the water out. Then I pour HOT water (from the microwave) down the drain. I let it sit a bit and then I **** it out and reapply.
This process should get it clean. Also, once it's free, I take the 1/4 inch plastic water line and stuff it down the vent a LONG way and make sure any obstruction is removed. Now just put it back together!
