Question about Refrigerators
There is a drain tube underneath the evaporator coils that has probably froze over. You'll probably have to take the evaporator cover off to access the drain area (the back wall of the inside of the freezer). You need to clear as much ice as possible from the area, then use hot water to melt the ice in the tube. There might also be a block in the tube (like a pea or corn) so you may still need to run something through the tube to clear that. Some things that might help prevent this in the future (other than not spilling a bag of frozen peas) would be to make sure the frige is level side to side and tipped back slightly, this will help the water run towards the drian. Tipping it back also helps the doors swing shut so you don't potentially leave a door. Also make sure the freezer is not too cold. Place a thermometer in the freezer and set the temp at between 5 and 10 deg above zero. Any colder will only freezer burn your food faster and cost you more electricity and put more wear and tear on the frige. You have to wait 24 hours between adjustments and check the temp after the doors have been shut for 6-8 hours (like first thing in the morning).
