Question about Freezers

I understand that the drain hose could be blocked in my freezer. But is there another way to unclog from the hose outside the freezer? Just not sure how to locate the hose from the inside.

Well technically you could blow compressed air from the outside, however, whatever is clogging the drain tubing, which is most likely going to be food debris, would then be blown into the freezer. The drain begins underneath the evaporator coil in the freezer. YOu will have to remove any and all ice SAFELY before you can blow compressed air into the drain to remove the obstruction.

You have a plugged drain hose. Defrost unit then check drain hole to see if clear. These have a real problem with that. This company is out of buisness now.

We have a GE 20.3 cu. ft. upright frost free freezer that keeps forming a layer of ice on the bottom, which we assume is happening when it is defrosting. How do we unclog the drain?


I let the ice box thaw out and use a shop vac to open the drain hole. You can find the end of the drain hose above the compressor drain pan.

Not cooling, but fan inside running


On a top-freezer when the drain stops up water will back up turning to ice and eventually filling the air ducks with ice blocking airflow to the fresh food section causing it not to cool. You will also see a water leak inside the fresh food section. To fix this, remove the evaporator cover, (back or bottom of freezer) and then remove all the ice. Once all the ice is removed, you need to unclog the drain. I do this by forcing hot water down the drain with a turkey baser but you can use any squirt bottle, I have even used the water hose. Once the drain is clear, mix water and baking soda and pour it down the drain to prevent this from happening again anytime soon.

Defrost hose plugs


Remove the back cover to access the top of that drain line. Take some table salt in a tablespoon and dump in the tube. Will drain so fast you won't believe it. Might have a big build up of ice blocking the top so get your hair dryer and defrost that big build up. Flush with small amount of water and monitor the drain pan located under neath the freezer. hope this was helpfull

Upright freezer


the water is coming from the freezer when is defrosts. the drain line is in the back wall of the freezer and may be clogged up with ice. clean out the freezer and pour some hot water in the very back of the freezer, this will hopefully unclog the drain. if not, then you have to take the back wall out of the freezer to get directly to the drain line. there should just be a couple screws holding it; it is just an aluminum or plastic panel.
 
if you already checked this and think it is a different problem then let me know, i will help you figure it out.

The freezer defrosts every day. the puddle is from that. It is supposed to go into a pan at the bottom and evaporate. You need to look at the pan and determine if it has a hole or the drain hose is leaking somewhere.
