Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

We have a top freezer whirlpool gold refrigerator - the tube for the freezer seems to be frozen solid causing water to leak into the fridge. How do we get at that tube - we can only feel the hole in the freezer but cannot see how to get at the rest of the tube.

You must remove items from the freezer and gain access to the rear panel via removing the screws on back panel and in most cases also removal of icemaker is a must. Then once access is gained then most bakers have a turkey baster get hot!! water and squirt water into drain area once water flow get a small flexible tube to insert into drain and then push what could be lodge in the peetrap built in the drain once done you good to go... it is a design issue on some models and the process may need to be done again....

Have whirlpool gold refrigerator with freezer on top. Water leaking continuously out bottom on floor. I turned water valve behind to off. All leaking stopped. Can someone tell me where to look for the...


Hi,

One big question before you go hunting. Before you turn off the water, was the water running all the time? Meaning if the water had a continuos flow the leak is before the fridge. If the leak is erratic then its on the valve side to fridge.
Follow the water source in the fridge, supply line to water valve (bottom right behind the fridge), from there it should run straight up the back into the freezer. So, if the water is coming from the valve, replace it, if from the water line - replace it. If the water line came off or out of the freezer reconnect and check for a frozen fill tube.
I hope this information helps.

Maytg Top Mount Freezer drip tube leaks into bottom of Refrigerat


Just had this problem a few weeks ago. tube from freezer was frozen solid 1-2 feet down from the freezer. Empty EVERYTHING out of the the Fridge and the freezer into coolers or other suitable 2-4hr container(s). Unplug the unit and use a hair blow dryer on the coolest warm setting. If it's too hot it may melt plastic or styrofoam parts. As long as long as you have everything out and it's going to be at room temperature for a while, why not clean it totally out with fantastic or your favorite cleaner. Once your sure the clog is gone from the tube, put it all back together, plug it in and stop being a slob and keep it clean!!!! hehehehehehe

Slow dripping water from top freezer into the main fridge


We just got rid of our 26 year old Kenmore for this reason. In 26 years I used a hair dryer to thaw out a tube toward the back of the refrigerator. At least in ours when the tube gets frozen shut the water had nowhere to go but in our egg tray.

Whirlpool fridge getting water from upper freezer compartment


well if you hat the freezer on top normaly air leaks inside freezer through the drain tube, that air turns into condensation and creates a ice and cloges your drain. now water can drain down to pan everytime ref goes into defrost , and water leaks to bottom section to air ducts and air returns. there are several ways to solve this problem the cheapeste way is to unplug refrigerator for 2 days then plug back up and it should go back to normal another way is to install a heat probe on your drain attached to your defrost heater , and add a grommet on drain tube that will let water drain but it will keep air out and that will solve your problem.

We were able to fix the freezer water leak. We unscrewed the false freezer floor and the inside back panel. Ice had accumulated on the freezer floor and the defrosting drain was frozen. We removed the ice by using a blow dryer then poured boiling hot water onto the frozen drain hole. The frozen water in the drain pipe hole eventually melted and the water released into the defrosting drip pan at the bottom of the refrigerator. Problem solved. We no longer have water leaking into the refrigerator.
