Question about Whirlpool GD2SHGX Refrigerator
Sorry I don't know this model, so I can only give generic advice on this one.
Most fridges have the cooling plate at the back. Try to keep food away from it, otherwise ice will form on it.
At the bottom of this area there will be a gully and drain hole through to the back. Any drips that form at the back, will drip into this gully, go through the hole, down a pipe and onto an evaperator tray sitting on top of the compressor.
What usually happens is that dust or labels get stuck to the cooling plate at the back, which drips down, blocking the pipe, which then stagnates into a grey stinky soup.....Lovely!
What you need to do is defrost the fridge, spray clean the inside with a multi-surface cleaner, and flush this tube with the cleaner water. A turkey baster syringe may be the easiest way to do this. As the evaperator tray only holds about 1/2 a cupful - don't overdo it.
While you are there, clean the door seals.& dry the interior.
This should cure the problem.
Thank you for using Fixya!
