It's much easier to clean in place since they are not usually designed to be removed. It's underneath the freezer/fridge and is accessed at the back behind the cardboard cover.

How do I check/add trans. fluid?


on these models, it is not necessary to check the fluid at regular intervals. (with no dip stick ). unless there is a leak or shifting problem. Here is how you would go to change the fluid! heres how to check it! Raise and support the car with jack stands, put drain pan in place under tranny, remove the front and side transaxle pan bolts. loosen the rear pan bolts one turn. carefully pry pan loose with a screwdriver, to drain the fluid. When drained, remove remaining bolts on pan. use a new gasket on pan if needed to put back on.(( FLUID LEVEL CHECK: vehicle has to be level! start vehicle let run for 3-5 minutes, shift through all the gears, locate fill plug on top of transaxle. it is on the drivers side ( look and you shall find it.) the check plug is located near the pan. adjacent to the drain plug. remove the plug, when fluid drips out of drain hole. fluid level is ok. the fluid level should be at the bottom of the drain plug. The reason I know, is because my 2000 Malibu was the same! When replacing the pan put in bolts . working around pan tighten each bolt a little at a time. until the final torque is reached. God -_Bless! if pan was removed.

How do you empty the drip pan located under freezer side of side by side


Older side by sides had a removal drain pan behind the grill located under the doors in front. Remove grill and just pull out the pan carefully to empty. But the newer refrigerators have the drain pan built into part of the compressor mount and are not removable. You can't empty or clean them without removing the back cover at the bottom back of the cabinet. You would need a sponge or towel to dry up the water.

I have a Samsung model RF4287HA French door refrigerator. Has anyone had success cleaning the drip pan located at the bottom rear of the refrigerator? I know that this pan can't be removed, but I can'


Hello Derek;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

In answer to your question, the drain pan is removable. This drain pan is available for purchase. The problem is both Samsung and LG are not service friendly. The drain pan is not secured with fasteners and just lifts up.

However, There is the interference from the seal system (refrigerant) tubing and compressor which prevents you from pulling the drain pan out.

On my service calls with drain pan leakage, I just repaired the drain pan with duct tape an silicone adhesive. Because I could not get the drain pan out with out moving the compressor.

Both, Samsung and LG are the worst service friendly and highest cost for repair.

Water leaking on floor


The drain pan should be removed and cleaned at least once a year. The drain pan is located at the bottom of the refrigerator behind the front grill. Remove the grill, which snaps into place. Grasp the drain pan while pulling slightly upward and forward.

Clean the pan with warm soapy water or warm water and baking soda.

If the pan rattles when it is replaced, it is too close to the compressor. Simply reposition the tray.

If you have an ice-maker, check the water supply hose going into and coming out of the water inlet valve. The hoses may be loose here.

Where is the transmission in line filter located for a 92 saab


I assume you have an automatic transmision (the manual is basically "fill and forget unless it leaks" as it wasn't designed with a drain point, but check the level periodically, anyway) Like pretty much all auto trans, the filter is located inside the bottom pan, and for Saab is a metal encased rectangular unit, with rounded end. It is cleanable and re-used. Drain the pan; clean the pan exterior and drop it; remove filter mounting bolts and filter and clean with suitable solvent or clean ATF; clean pan and magnet in pan and reinstall magnet in the SAME position; re-install filter with NEW O ring; dry pan and re-install with NEW gasket (no sealant); install drain plug; re-install cross members/support plates what have you torques: pan mounting bolts 71-106 in-lb drain plug 44-71 in-lb REFILL the transmission, and with handbrake on and engine running, shift through all gears. Then re-check fluid levels and check for leaks. If this helps you, please give a "thumbs up" thanks Saabreur
