Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

Kenmore model 501-66812. Fridge has moisture build up on the inside and will soak a tea towel at the bottom of the frige after only 2 days. The drainage pan at the back is completely dry which makes me think there is a clog in the drainage tube but I can only access the tube from the bottom of the fridge.

Fridge not cooling after doors left open for at least 2 possibly 5 days. What should I do? Turn off for 24 hours? I have limited skills when it comes to repairing anything. Thanks!

It would have been far easier to switch off and just scrape the inside with a pladtic scraper ...then give it a good wipe and after a couple of hours plug it back in.

Frige not cooling on bottom freezer frige

Check the air vents, from the freezer to fridge. Air travels through those vents. Sometimes, products get shoved under the vents, preventing air flow. It sounds like, the vents are clogged with something. I guess, the fan is working inside, of the freezer? Ice in the bottom, of the freezer pan, could be clogging the vents. You'll have to dig deeper. Good luck.

Freezer has moisture dropping from bottom of door. Just started Saturday 8/9/14. What could be the problem? Also, where do you fine the model number?

You might have a torn seal around the door. CHeck that carefully and clean it with a damp sponge.
The model number is on a tag somewhere inside the fridge, usually easily readable so check by the filter or the light.

You might also have frozen coils, and might need to defrost it (turn it off for a day with the doors open) so get some freezer boxes and some dry ice to store your food and keep a towel on the floor in front of the freezer to absorb the melted ice.

I have a Maytag fridge model # PSB2151GRW without the ice maker , there is a steady build up of ice on the bottom shelf of the freezer and a puddle of water on the floor ...

Ok so here comes the fun part. Unplug the frig! Two people due this much faster. Remove all food and shelves from freezer. Get ya some bath towels place them on the floor and some on the bottom of the freezer. Take 2 coffee cups and heat them for 3 minutes. Remove them and remember they are hot! Pour a cup of hot water where the ice is and let the towel soak up any water. Now fill that up and heat for 2 minutes now. Pour the other cup on the ice and keep rotating until the ice is gone you will see the drain hole which is going to have ice down that tube so keep pouring hot water until the water drains into the drain pan below. If you can't clear the drain tube use compressed air or a turkey baster can help out too. Wipe down the inside of freezer walls to eliminate the condensation now your ready to party... Don't forget to plug the unit back in the outlet!

There is constantly water on the bottom of one side of our fridge. I need to put a tea-towel in to soak it up and this needs replacing everyday. Fridge is still cold and combined freezer is working...

This can be due to overflow of the defrosted water from the collection tank. Also check if there is leak on the tank or the deforsted water pipe line from the evaporator.
You need to move the fridge forward to confirm on this, drain the water from tank and check.

My frige stays warm all the time it is a Hotpoint

evaporator coils are iced up on the freezer side. either take everything out of the fridge and unplug it and let it sit for a day to defrost, or remove the inside rear panel where there is frost and (with the fridge off) use warm water sprayed on the ice to defrost it (or use a hair dryer, but just until the ice is melted. do not overheat the metal). soak up the excess water (underneath the fridge, too), and turn it on empty. let it run empty for a day to get it cold, then put the stuff back in. if the stuff is in there when it's warm, the humidity will ice up the coils again.

Refrigerator moisture

hi there your fridge has whats called a wet wall evaporator where it freezes up then turns to water and runs down the wall , if you are getting water sitting in the base of the fridge check the drain hole which is sittuated at the bottom of the wet wall evaporator for any blockages ie. bits of food or paper labels.

hope this is of some help

Fridge not cold, freezer fine...

look at the back inside wall of the freezer. you might need to put your hand on it to feel it. if you see or feel frost the you have a defrost problem. if its not defrosting the frost builds up and blocks air flow from the freezer to the frige so the frige cant cool. it will either be the defrost element, defrost thermostat or the defrost timer causing the problem
