Water from fridge not going down plug hole into container. How ofter should the water container be emptied at the back of the fridge/freezer I have a sub zero frigerator #550 its about 15 years old....


Hi,

Self-defrosting refrigerators dispose of the water generated during the defrost cycle, usually via a tube or channel that directs the water to a pan at the bottom of the refrigerator. From the pan, the water normally evaporates. .

If the tube or channel is clogged or obstructed, the water backs up and leaks into the inside of the refrigerator compartment. Then the water builds up at the bottom, inside of the refrigerator. When the water has built up for a time it may spill out of the front of the door opening. To fix this problem, clear the drain tube or channel and allow the defrost water to flow down to the drain pan.You can use a hair dryer and remove the ice buildup

My propane storage compartment smells like propane and my regulator freezes up but there are no apperent leaks


You store propane in a compartment? Propane MUST have ventilation or it will collect in there and explode. If you smell propane the re there IS a leak, turn off your tank and do not close that compartment up.

I have water collecting on the bottome of my side by side refrigerator on the frigerator sided un the crisper.


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
Actually the leaking water is from the evaporator coil unit....(it is located at the back wall or underneath the freezer compartment). Under normal conditions,Self-defrost refrigerators usually dispose the water generated during the defrost cycle through a tube or channel that directs the water a pan (Known as Drip pan), commonly below the refrigerator unit....
The channel or tube is clogged and the water is leaking to the refrigerator/freezer unit, so you need to clear that blockage/contamination....Once the blockage is removed, the generated water will move through that channel/tube directly to the drip pan and there will no water on the floor in the refrigerator/freezer compartment. This is all you need to do....


Best of Luck,


Your token of appreciation in form of rating would be highly obliged,

Engine fumes leaking into car compartment through the ventilation system - how can I fix this problem ?


The main thing you will need to do is to minimise the amount of 'excessive' engine fumes being generated in your engine compartment which in turn will 'leak' into your car compartment: 1) Degrease your engine and check for leaking oil gaskets especially around the oil refill area: oil leaks at the back of the engine falling on your hot exhaust pipes and on your engine block will generate lots and lots of 'nasty' smelling fumes! 2) Check that your exhaust pipes joints are well sealed especially the one contained within the engine compartment: taking great precautions, check for the obvious leaks from smoke emitted but you could use soapy water to assist. 3) Check that the lining in your engine compartment are in good condition taking particular attention to the 'Firewall' ones (e.g. the one between the engine compartment and the passenger side compartment). 4) Check for broken heating/cooling air hoses leading into the passenger compartment.
Hope it helps!

Heater immediately fogs all windows and there is a sweet odor in the cab of 2003 Buick Rendezvous, defroster works fine, but will not clear the windows after heat is put on


Sounds like a possible heater core failure(hole in it) the smell indicates to me the coolant(anti-freeze) is leaking into the passenger compartment.
Check the carpet in front of the front passenger seat for moisture, this would confirm heater core leak.
Good luck !

Loads of slimey grey water in filter drawer and horrible smells


First of all, you need to confirm if the leak is from the filter or the pump.
You can replace the filter seperately to the pump.
If you replace the filter, and it still leaks, then you are going to have replace the pump.
I would suggest that that you check and clean if needed the outlet pipe where the water enters the outside waste pipe.
Make sure that you do a boil wash periodically, to ensure that the drum and other internal parts are clean.
Clean the door seal and dry after each wash, it helps to leave the door slightly open
Please leave any comments that may have as regards to my suggestions.
Thankyou.

Subzero bottom freezer drawer is freezing shut.


Silicone bath/shower sealant should work, the one that smells like vinegar. Also known as RTV.

 

Just make sure the area is dry, clean and free of old caulk.

It'll need to be at room temperature to set properly for a few hours.

 

I have used this sealant on things before that went as low as

-50C. Preperation is the key though.
