Water inside chefmate refrigerator

I own a chefmate refrigerator 1.7cu ft. There is water on the inside. I came in today and noticed water on the inside. Thought it was from a spill but 4 hours later there is water again. Where is it coming from?

Moisture inside the 'fridge condenses on the coolest parts. Most are designed so that the moisture runs down into a channel and is directed out through a small tube somewhere at the back of the compartment, near the bottom.

I would guess that the tube is blocked near the top.

Try finding the tube and carefully inserting something flexible down it to clear the blockage. Don't use anything too rigid, or anything metallic, as these may damage the tube and cause more serious problems. I have done this before using a pipe cleaner.

Hello,

You need to check for the refrigerator level, drain pan, condenser fan, evaporator fan and inspect the compressor mounts for the cause of noise. Any popping or hissing sound is normal on frost free refrigerators.

Good luck

I thoguht I had posted the solution. repeating now ask for estimates/ inference from thre persons and deccide for only low cost of repair. If your fridge is more than 5 years old do not proceed specially if the pumping of the compressor is down. Go for a good exchange with a the modern enerrgy effficient models as you can choose from good economic/ luxury ranges and give you about 5-7 years warranty.Invest Well. Good Luck

Look for obstruction at the drain tray for the freezer. Common to have plastic wrap sucked into that area.Or gunk in the drain line. Blow through line to insure the gunk is not an issue.

One thing I might suggest is to check and see if the magnetic seal around the outside of the door is clean, tight, and fitted properly as this is one thing that can cause this condition.

the drain hole is blocked in the bottom of the fridge. if the water is not able to drain down the hole it will overflow into the fridge base. check any holes at the inside back of the fridge.
