Inside back wall of Fridge is swelling

The back plastic wall on the inside of my refridgerator is swollen and looks like its "pregnant", protruding so much that it has pushed the horizontal compartments forward so much that I can no longer close the fridge door and had to remove those compartments. The fridge is otherwise working. What is wrong?

Art, I need to get a little more information from you. Does the condenser fan under the refrigerator seem to work and blowing warm air from below and or behind the refrigerator? The motor feeling warm is OK. Only when too hot to touch on top. Needs to cycle also. When you opened the freezer did you hear the fan blowing? Thanks, JT

SOURCE: freezer works but fridge remains warm.

The same fan that circulates air in the freezer also blows air in to the fridge. If you open the freezer door and hold the door switch closed you should hear the fan running. If not you have a failed motor or motor control. Look at the back wall of the freezer section and see if there is a heavy frost build up. If so. you have a defrost system problem. Please post back with what you find and with the complete model number and I will try to walk you through the steps of checking everything.
Thanks/Mike

Please help ..my fridge is swelling on inside back wall where my shelves are protruding can anyone help please its a beko xx


Sounds like you have moisture in there and it's freezing causing swelling. Sounds like you need to defrost- really defrost your fridge.

Remove the food to somewhere else, FIRST unplug the thing, open the doors and use fans to blow air in there to melt any ice in the unit.

Be prepared to mop up lots of water.from the floor and keep emptying your pan under the fridge if it has one. This can take a whole day to get done and maybe a day and a night.

Water runs down the inside back of the unit and freezes


Our fridge has a plastic hose running down the rear of the fridge and water was coming inside and running down inside the fridge walls and out the bottom of the door when we opened it. I called a repair man and he blew the plastic hose out and reinstalled it and had no trouble since. Our fridge has a water tray under neath the fridge that this hose is suppose to run into. The tray dries itself out so you don't have to empty it.

Back plastic wall of refrigerator is swelling. What should I do?


Unplug sooooooon to prevent damage to coils!!! Remove plastic wall. Melt ice totally with hair dryer. See defrost heater at bottom of coils. If good it will read 50 to 200 ohms. If bad it will read infinite ohms. If my guessing is right, it will read bad and will need changing, along with the small clip-on thermostat that sits at or above the top of your coils. Parts will cost you $50 to $100 on the Net, and you'll spend 2 hours max.

Water in refridgerator


Have a look inside fridge compartment (especially the "roof", if it's a top-mount freezer) & see if you can see any ice build-up (look inside vents that allow cold air into fridge from freezer section. Also, if top-mount freezer, look inside the freezer compartment for ice build-up on "floor", inside vents, or on back wall. These symptoms, combined with water dripping from lots of the "roof" of fridge section (in a top-mount freezer model), can mean several different problems, so best to re-post with more info/symptoms included.
If there's no ice build-up (& the dividing area between fridge & freezer sections isn't particularly cold, which otherwise might indicate hidden ice build-up), it can be as simple as a plugged or obstructed drain tube, which is VERY COMMON. Easiest solution for this latter problem is to use a flexible plastic tube (think similar type as attached to aquarium air pumps), stuff it into drain hole, and blow on the other end. Sometimes you have to blow quite hard to clear an obstruction or complete blockage. If you can't clear the drain tube, it's likely a different problem. Again, a re-post with more info/symptoms will help narrow it down.

Water dripping inside KTLA22EMSS01


Your freezer actually cools your fridge. It sounds like you have ice build up in your freezer behind the back panel. You should be able to unscrew the back wall inside your freezer. A hair dryer should help defrost or keep it open for a few and use a screwdriver to remove the build up of ice. The ice has made its way down the vent and when it hits the fridge it is above 32 degrees so it is melting. Hope this helps. I manage rental properties and have had it happen on a few occasions.

Water buildup in fridge


Same problem ...same fridge, different serial though.

Drain tube is blocked, but you'll have to take off the back panel inside the freezer, and look at where the drain tube is (usually centre).
the plastic/surrounding opening of the drain tube in our case was starting to rust out, allowing the leak to persist.
special silicon sealant worked for about 1.5 years, but the insert that is inside the freezer should be replaced.

no you can't get an insert they're not available
