Hello, can you guys please help me locate what the problem is on my fridge? .. Is building ice on the freezer section.. Thx

If it's building ice on the freezer floor it is likely that the defrost condensate drain is blocked. You will need to remove the drawer, shelves, frozen items, rear panel, rear vent and belt the ice there also until you get the drain unblocked and can force hot water through the hole with a turkey baster.

Clogged drain line, water build up inside food compartment

if lucky you can unblock it with a wire coat hanger, just unravel hanger and push down drain hole.

this does not work pull fridge out and u will see the hose running down to the dissapeter, remove it and clean

if you cant see hose at back it is internal and cannot be taken out

find hole above compressor where water comes from and try to unbock from bottom using coat hanger

if blocked with ice at bottom usually means insulation has broken fridge needed

Bosch intelligent frost free 40

The small drain pipe on the back of the fridge gets clogged, hence no drainage when defrosting, hence ice blocks the airflow between the freezer compartment and the fridge compartment.
Remove the rubber stop from the drain pipe and clean (can be found above the motor)
Defrost the fridge for a few days (it takes at least 48 hours). During this time, if you are not brave enough to remove the internal panels of the freezer and continually clean the water, check for water coming out and clean.
If during the defrost there is no water coming out the drain pipe, use about 2m of flexible and strong wire to clean the pipe.
The aim is to unblock the pipe once the ice has melted.

Hello help People, Water is dripping very slowly from the back of the fridge ceiling seemingly coming from the drain in the freezer? We cleaned out both the freezer and fridge and allowed for some...

maybe the drain is blocked further along - at the rear of the fridge. Sometimes there is a small bend or elbow in the drainage system that blocks.Check the outlet to see if water is actually coming out at all.
