I'm not 100% sure here.. but I suspect you might have moisture in the lining of your fridge.. Not a good thing. It may mean your heater (to keep moisture out of the lining) is faulty. In that case it's quite difficult to fix.. The ice up in the lining is probably not due to a drip-pan. Sorry I haven't answered your question, but thought it worthwhile mentioning the other possibility. PS most drip-pans sit on top of the compressor under the fridge, accessible from behind the fridge. Usually there is a drain tube down to the pan. This can sometimes get blocked up & may need some cleaning solution like white king (bleach) pored down it, to get rid of mold or whatever's blocking it.

LOOK ON THE BOTTOM OF THE FREEZER. IS IT FULL OF ICE? IF SO YOU HAVE A DEFROST DRAIN PROBLEM. THE BEST WAY TO REMEDY THIS IS UNPLUG IT OVERNIGHT AND REMOVE THE BACK FREEZER PANEL YOU WILL SEE A HOLE THAT LEADS TO THE DRAIN PAN. YOU NEED TO CLEAR THIS, COMPRESSED AIR WORKS BEST.

Ice accumulation at defroster drain hole


You can usually clean them out from the inside of the freezer.I use a piece of plastic tubing to run down them. You can also use a piece of wire as long as it doesn't have a sharp end that might damage the tube. You can remove the cover from the back of the fridge and you will see the tube coming out of the cabinet going to the drain pan. Post back if you need further help.

sounds as if when it goes into defrost there is a tube that runs down the back of the unit inside the exterior casing. This tube empties out onto a small tray the sits right on top of the compressor in the back bottom of the fridge What this does is use the heat from the compressor to evaporate the water from the defrosting cycle. Check the back of the unit to see if the tube is sitting in the pan if not place it there and your problem is solved. Good luck on your repairs

Frigidiare PLHS39EESS9 Ice build up in bottom of Freezer


I had the same problem with my Jenn-air side-by-side

Your freezer has a defrost cycle and when the freezer temp is set too cold, your drainage pan and tube freezes up (behind the back panels in the freezer) and when that gets full it spills over too the bottom of the fridge and keeps building up until you notice.
  • Un-plug fridge and put your food in coolers or another fridge.
  • Defrost the freezer, remove the ice from the bottom.
  • Remove the back panel/s (in the freezer).
  • Check the drainage pan. If it is iced up, you'll have to carefully remove the ice and check the drainage hole.
  • If the hole is iced up, so is the first 1-2 inches of the plastic tube leading to the main drainage pan behind and under the fridge.
  • You can use a hair drier to speed up defrost.
  • To defrost the hole and tube I used round ended metal (nut pics or beater attachment ends- avoid sharp objects) heated up in boiling water and gently forced down into the hole and tube until defrosted.
  • Check flow(by pouring warm water) down and looking behind and under fridge(with flashlight) to see if flowing into main drainage pan.
  • Turn up your freezer temp and check with a thermometer. Your freezer temp was probably set too cold
Mine is going on 5 months with no problem. If this continues, it might be the defroster.
Good Luck!

Fridge not keeping food cold.


When you open door to freezer do you hear a fan inside that compartment blowing? If you don't the fan motor is shot and will need to be replaced.

Jenn Air JCD2389 fridge not cold on fridge side


You have plugged the defrost drain line.This is where the water goes to in the bottom of your freezer when it goes through the defrost (removal of ice from the freezer coil) cycle. It sounds like that hole is plugged and now the water/ice has now frozen in the vent that lets air circulate down into your refrigerator compartment. What I usually do in this case is to unplug the refrigerator, empty out the freezer compartment. Usually I also end up either pulling off the back panel or the bottom panel (in the freezer compartment) Looking for that defrost drain hole and thawing it out with a heat gun (be careful of melting plastic) or actually I use a hair dryer. I can sometimes do this also by pouring small amounts of HOT tap water onto it and then sopping/absorbing it away with a sponge or dishcloth. I repeat this until I get the water to go down the drain tube.

Try it and let me know!

Jenn-Air freezer leak


Apparently it is the drain behind the freezer panel on the inside and it is blocked. It needs to be unblocked and cleaned. You remove the food and the rear panel on the inside of the freezer. With a hair dryer (carefully) remove all ice build up and then unblock the drain line going to the pan under the refrigerator. The drain line can be cleaned with bi-carb and hot water (not boiling).
