Question about Refrigerators
The drain is plugged,when it goes into defrost the ice melts on the evap coil,it should go down the drain line to the bottom where the compressor is and evaporate from the heat but your drain is blocked and the water is sitting there and freezing up.you have to take up the fridge floor and get at the evap coil and first melt out all the ice with a hair dryer,if you have a shop vac you can vac up the water as it's melting,watch out with the heat from the hair dryer,you can damage the blade on the fan and damage the styrofoam,don't keep the heat in one spot to long and try not to open the drain hole till last,if you do and some of the water goes down the drain the pan on the bottom will overflow from to much water,once you melt out all the ice you have to clear out the drain line,i use a steamer,it cuts through whatever is in the line,also on some of the machines if you look at the back of the fridge there's a plastic trap that you can remove and clean out that the melted water runs through,i use a plastic wire tie to snake through it but your machine might not have this,some guys say a turkey baster works to blow through the line but whatever you use when you're done pour hot water into the drain,if it goes down then you know the drain is clear.let me know what you find
