Refrigerator drip pans too expensive are there alternatives?

I need an alternative for a drip pan instead of spending 40 some dollars for a new one. My thought would be to get a plastic painters pan used for rollers and put a sponge in it.

Whats the sponge for ??
Caution with the type of plastic tray you use.
Theory is - yes you can do what you suggest - However - dependant on the location of the drip tray (above motor ! ! ! ) some plastics will 'perish' and become brittle / fibrous.

How do I locate and clean drip pan on LG french refrigerator?


the evaporation pan is under the refrigerator, over the top of the compressor unit. Sometimes fungi or algae can grow in there causing a mildew smell. If you can get access to it you can pour a mixture of baking soda and water into the inner part of the pan to destroy the plant matter and remove smells. About 1 tsp in 1/2 cup of water should do it.
Alternatives: 1/2 cup water with 50 ml white vinegar, or 20 mls bleach should do it. Be sparing with the water - it has nowhere to go but the floor after it overflows the evaporation tray.

How do i replace the cracked drip pan in the french door refigerator


  • Unplug the refrigerator from the power source and remove the decorative vent cover at the bottom of the fridge under the door. Some vent covers are screwed on but many just snap onto clip that hold them in place.

  • Pull gently on the exposed front edge of the drip pan and ease it out towards you. The drip pan slides on runners on each side of the bottom of the refrigerator. It may be full of liquid or debris so go slow and steady and then discard it.

  • Line up the new drip pan with the two side guides beneath the refrigerator and slide into place. Use the flashlight if to make sure the drip pan is in the groove on each side.
  • Clean and replace the vent cover by clipping or screwing it into place. Plug the refrigerator back into the power outlet

    You may be able to scrape off the remains of the pan but you must be careful to avoid damaging the oven lining. The alternative is to buy a new oven.

    How do i remove a drip pan from a kenmore refrigerator


    The drip pan collects water when the freezer goes into a defrost cycle. Most times there is very little water and the water evaporates quickly. When there is a problem with the freezer or the water does not evaporate between defrost cycles, the drip pan fills with water. If the front bottom of your refrigerator has a grille, you access the drip pan from the front. If there is no grille, access the drip pan from the rear.

    Instructions
    Rear Access

    1 Unplug the refrigerator from the wall outlet. Pull the refrigerator away from the wall so that you can access the rear of the refrigerator.

    2 Look under the refrigerator with a flashlight and locate the drip pan. Often when people install refrigerators they neglect to pull the packing from around the drip pan. The drip pan may have tape or styrofoam around it.


    3 Remove any packing material away from the drip pan and pull the drip pan out from under the refrigerator.

    Front Access

    4 Pull the grille at the bottom of the refrigerator below the refrigerator door with your fingers. The grille secures to the refrigerator with plastic clips.

    5 Remove any debris from the access area and throw the debris in the trash. The coils and fan under the refrigerator attract dust and dirt. Clean out the area with a lint brush if you have one.

    6 Pull the drip pan out from under the refrigerator.

    It is the water that is emanating the odor. If you look at the back you will find a drain for this drip pan. If you cant find any then you may like to use a self made mop kind of a thing. A thin stick with some cloth tied to one end. Push it into the opening where you located to water from and dip it into the water and pull the stick and squeeze the water down. You will have to do it a number of times depending on the quantity of water in the pan. Then use a dry cloth the dry up the pan. This should remove the odor. Alternatively you can use a long rubber hose to siphon out the water. BUT, this is not a cure. To cure you may want to call a service personnel.

    Drip pan needs emptying; had repairman out for other issues, now fridge keeps overflowing


    The accumulated ice you saw is of course the source of the water. The refrigerator will eventually rid itself of the excess ice and the problem will therefore disappear on it's own after a while. The drip pan is normally filled with only a small amount of water, and that is dried up by the condenser cooling fan under the fridge. The pan is removable from most units, but not without making a mess. I suppose you can make and clean up the mess one time and be done with it.
