Remove drip tray from bosch KTR1670GB

Can you please advise on how to remove drip tray from bosch fridge KTR1670GB. Tray filled up with gunge and needs cleaning and disinfecting. From what I can see a 'tightener' linked to the compressor keeps it in place. I suspect that this could be un tightened to get the tray out, however, there is hardly any room to do this.

Water leaking from bottom of my Bosch fridge (irregular - might be defrosting??)


There is a tray under many refrigerators that traps water so that it may harmlessly evaporate. It or the drip tube may have become dislodged, possibly by cleaning under the unit. The tray should easily be removed, then you may see if it or the tube is the problem.

I do not use bleach and the bleach dispenser has water that remains filled after a wash.


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

I suspect that it is the conditioner/softener/bleach tray which needs a thorough clean, paying particular attention to the sentences in BOLD
-------------------------------------
Try the following- in the second and third cases whilst looking from underneath!
  • Top catch- push down the lip/catch at the middle rear and pull the drawer out (that's how our Bosch one is removed)
  • release the catches underneath (our daughter's Indesit).You may have to push the bottom of the dispenser upwards.
  • lift upwards on the tray as it is coming out to clear the lip underneath. Again you may have to push the bottom of the dispenser upwards.
Once out identify which tray is for the conditioner- the others are simply 'chutes' and open-ended.
It will normally have some sort of cover over it which you must remove to expose the little stuck up pipe/tube. On some models there is just a small individual cap over the tube
but on others the cover is part of the tray's plastic top. The tube is down which the conditioner and water should siphon. It is likely to be blocked by 'gunge'- a mix of powder and conditioner. The whole of the tray, particularly this pipe and the bit which fits over it, must be completely clean and clear for it to operate correctly. It is worthwhile checking fairly regularly.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

How do I remove the plastic drip tray from behind my Wesitnghouse Aurora Fridge Freezer.


we had a really bad smell coming from the back of our westinghouse aurora. and yes found it to be emanating from drip tray at the back. To remove this we had to undo 4 clips at the base of black motor thingy, that the plastic drip box sits on. Then we were able to lift whole thing a bit ,(10mm up and 50mm out, approx) so we could tilt everything forward and sweeze and wiggle tray out. then cleaned with bleach. also we unblocked hole inside fridge that allows water to drip into drip tray at back.

Fabric Softner tray is full of water and won't drain. After every wash the tray is full, and when I empty it before a new wash it just fills up again

One of these should enable you remove it

Milk which was spilled in the fridge has dripped into the drip tray behind the fridge and has created the most awful smell. Can the tray be removed for cleaning and if so how?


Yes, usually the tray can be removed for cleaning. You will have to pull the fridge out, unplug power, remove the rear access cover. Then you should see the evaporator / condensate tray and how to remove it.

Freezer drips water into frigde filling up ottom tray


Hello, If it is a top mount freezer then there is a drain that runs from the freezer to the drain pan that gets gummed up sometimes and if that happens then the water has no place to go but the fridge. Look all the way in the back of the fridge and you'll see a yellowish colored tube. You can just pop that out and take it to the sink and clean it out.. Hope this helps

Cleaning drip tray.


I have just removed the drip tray from my fridge freezer and it was relatively easy.

Do not remove the compressor unit.

The drip tray is held in place by a metal clasp which is welded to the top of the compressor. The clasp is a flat piece of metal which must physically twisted to align with the key way in the plastic drip tray. I used thin pair of pliers to grip the clasp and twist it clockwise to line up with the tray key way. The tray then has to be carefully manouvred off the compressor so as not to cause damage or spill it foul smelling contents. This I managed to achieve fairly easily.

Clean out and install then twist the clasp to clamp the tray into position. I don't know what would happen if you didnt lock the tray back in position as it does not seem capable of falling off on its own and it would be easier to remove next time.

Hope this makes sense

Fan blows out a smell from underneath fridge could it be leaking gas.


Hi,
I have the same problem with the odor. I took the back off and discovered the drip pan was full of stagnant dirty water. This place is bacteria heaven. The problem I have now is that i cant seem to find a way to remove the pan without taking the motor out and everything. Any suggestions?
