Question about Refrigerators
Check the hose under your fridge that drains condensation
and such into a catch tray. Make sure the hose is draining
Blow air through the tube to make sure it is not clogged. A coat hanger wire can be inserted to break up clogs. An alternative method is to use a bicycle pump to force air through the drain hole to remove any obstruction. Vacuum dust bunnies from under the fridge to allow free flow of the air. Most refrigerators periodically blow warm air across the condensation tray. The warm air dries the condensation in the tray.
Clogs are usually caused when dust, moisture and micro-organisms get together in the drain tube. Keep the dust vacuumed from the back and bottom of the fridge. Make sure the drain tube is firmly connected at all points. The drain tube can be flushed with chlorine bleach, rubbing alcohol or other anti-bacterial product. Product selection should be consistent with the tubing material.
CAUTION!! Always unplug refrigerator before attempting ANY kind of service and/or moving it!!
