Indicated appliance is overgassed assuming fridge and freezer temps are ok

Posted on Aug 28, 2008

Not easy to do without the right gear. if you can lay hands on a line tap valve (valve which bolts onto the compressor pipe and pierces a hole) then you can try letting out a little gas at a time but only let gas out when compressor is not working and has been off for a few minutes

Ice forming under the freezer drawer & on drain tube water pooling in floor Cleared drain tube, what else?


Whirlpool corp., whom made this unit, had a bad design for the defrost drain tube by the compressor. Order part W10619951 and install. This is a kit to change out the current drain tube to a better one. You still have to defrost the frozen defrost drain tube but this will fix it for good.

Fan inside fridge not blowing


is the ice on the floor of the freezer?if so the freezer drain is blocked,ice is building up and the fan blade is jammed from the ice.when the machine gets cold ice forms on the evap coil in the freezer,when it goes into defrost the heater turns on and melts the ice and the water drains down a hole under the evap coil and the water goes down into a pan where it evaporates from the heat of the compressor and condenser coil but your drain is blocked and the water is leaking onto the floor of the freezer instead of going down the drain,i use a steemer to clear blocked drains but if you don't have a steemer you can use a hair dryer to melt out the ice,on your machine you can pull out the machine from the wall,remove the back bottom panel and unplug it first,then look at the right side,you'll see a plastic drain line with a wire tie around it,that's the drain line,you might have to cut the tie and then pull the drain line down and remove it,now go to the freezer,you have to remove the door and racks and then remove the back inside wall of the freezer,melt out all the ice that you see with the hair dryer,after you melt the ice go to the back and snake a long plastic tie like the one that's on the drain line or if you have a piece of 1/4 inch plastic water line or anything you can think of to snake through the hole where the drain line came off of,i would use plastic,if you use metal be careful not to damage anything,then pour hot water into the drain in the freezer,if it drains out the back hole you're done,if not keep hitting it with heat and if you have a turkey baster or anything that will push air down the hole to clear it and when you think it's clear pour more hot water into the hole until it drains.hope this helps and good luck with your machine.

I have water leaking in the freeer apparently down the back wall and pools on floor to form ice. Water has also accumulates under freezer on hard wood floor but not all the time. Model MSD27326R There is...


Water coming from the back of the refrigerator usually comes from either the ice maker water valve or line (if there is an ice maker), or from the defrost drain pan.

Here's what to do:
  • If the water is coming from the ice maker water valve, check to make sure the water tubes are attached properly and are fastened tightly.
  • If the water seems to be coming from any part of the valve itself, replace the valve.
  • If the water appears to be coming from the defrost drain pan, inspect for holes or cracks, and replace the pan if necessary.

Amana model SXD25QA3W. Not cooling. Compressor runs.


Low on refrigerant which is R 12. EPA has stopped the manufacture of it and it is priced out of sight.
You have a leak and will need it fixed. Compressor is about $300-400 list. You don't want to go there.
Good luck but likely 15-17 years old....... New one ???

Water pooling underneath bottom drawers


Find the drain line from the freezer to the evaporation pan near the motor. Often the line is visible on the back of the fridge. That line is plugged either with food residue or the collection point in the freezer is solid ice. The self defrost feature melts the frost and drains it to the evap pan. If you remove the floor from the freezer area, you will see the collection point. When the line gets plugged with food, no water drains and then freezes to block the line even worse. So, if there is ice at the collection point, remove it somehow, maybe a hair dryer, and then clear the line by blowing compressed air from the bottom of the drain hose through to the collection point.

Ice forming on freezer


The drain is plugged. This fridge will defrost every 8 hrs or so. When it does , it will melt the frost that has built up on the evaporator. This melted frost will run down a drain under the evaporator to a drain in the bottom directly under the evaporator. When the drain gets plugged the water cannot drain out of the freezer compartment. After several defrost cycles the melted frost will overflow onto the freezer floor. When the fridge starts back up it will freez this water is the bottom of the fridge. sometimes this water that is now ice will melt on the next defrost cycle and actually run out into the floor. You will have to unplug the fridge or turn it off, then remove the cover to the evaporator. Get a hair dryer and melt the ice aruond the evaporator and drain. Once the ice is removed, check the drain and try to clear it. Once clear, replace everything but the shelves. Plug the fridge back in or turn it back on. Observe and listen for the evaporator fan. It should be running now. When working on the ice on the evaporator always be carefull. The defrost heater can be damaged if up push or pull on it too much.

Ice is forming in the bottom of the freezer compartment, and water forms under the fridge freezer. Also the comperssor does not always respond to the freezer setting when the stat is turned...


compressor may not start for quite a time even if you change the stat setting. this is deliberate.

ice on floor of the freezer is caused by the drain being blocked - probably with ice. remove the back panel inside the freezer and melt the ice off with a hairdryer. you will have to clear the drain itself with hot water - needs a bit of patience.

this can just happen with time but you may have a fault on the defrost system which is causing it
