Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


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.

F1 (or E1) is a "Flood" fault and means there is water in the bottom pan. This is beneath the bottom drawer. The sensor is in the left, rear corner of the base pan. Any kind of leak, including over sudsing or split hoses or or lid not down fully due to tall items in tub, can cause this. Remove the lower drawer, dry the water from the pan bottom, reinstall the lower drawer and check operation. If this error recurs you must find the leak and correct it.

Water leaking inside my vegetable drawer


Just above the drawers is a drain hole on the back wall. Push a drinking straw or very thin brush down to unblock the drainhole and the water will drain away outside the rear into a pan on top of the compressor

Hi i have 2 door showing F1 WHAT does itmein


Hi,
That means you had a leak and the under the lower drawer has taken on water. Remove the lower drawer and remove the water. Then locate why your drawer was leaking n the first place. Did you have too tall of an item in it, or did you use the incorrect soap? Normally its a tall item that caused the leak.
Good Luck

Fisher and Paykel Dishdrawer beeping constantly


leave it unpluged to stop for now, the machine has detected a leak and is constantly running hte pumps within the drawers to try to remove any water.. problrm is the water detector is in bottom under the lower drawer and htere is no pump to remove that water ..canbge a fickle machine as far as leaks are concerned, but the easy reason is usually misloading of the drawer itself, was an item put in that was too tall , preventing the lid from coming down and sealing off drawer causing water to overflow down the side??? there should be(so logn as no previous repairmen have taken it) a tech/trubleshooing guide taped to teh back wall behind the lower drawer, which is easily removed by unlocking hte hinges on either side of the front of drawer, explained in your manual

Water leak from detergent drawer


Remove the control panel. Inside you will find a service tech sheet that will identify the error code.

There may be an obstruction in the water valve inlet flume forcing the water to travel in the wrong direction.
