The tray can be removed by easing up the front and then pulling out. Use fingers both sides of compressor to release the tray from a sticky pad that sticks to the top of the compressor. Once free from the sticky pad the tray can be pulled out horizontally.

Proline tall fridge. Got water at back of fridge


Hi... Yes you will have... normally the self-defrost fluids exits the fridge through a tube at the back of the fridge... you will see a drain hole if you look (this can get blocked and if so... water will come out via the door into a puddle) this tube drains into a sort of tray which sits on the hot compressor... where it is supposed to evaporate.

How do I remove the plastic drip tray from behind my Wesitnghouse Aurora Fridge Freezer.


we had a really bad smell coming from the back of our westinghouse aurora. and yes found it to be emanating from drip tray at the back. To remove this we had to undo 4 clips at the base of black motor thingy, that the plastic drip box sits on. Then we were able to lift whole thing a bit ,(10mm up and 50mm out, approx) so we could tilt everything forward and sweeze and wiggle tray out. then cleaned with bleach. also we unblocked hole inside fridge that allows water to drip into drip tray at back.

There is a bad smell coming from the back of the fridge. The inside smells fine, the freezer does not smell either. It looks like there is some kind of tray inside the back of the fridge. Its is filled...


If you are referring to the drip pan that on the bottom of the fridge, that could be the source of your odor problem. Take the pan out and check to see what is in it. Normally there should only be just water that comes from the defrost cycle.

Nasty smell in garage.....think its coming from refrigerator


It's either the drip tray which is removeable from the front, or, mice are playing in the drip tray under the compressor. Soak in up, rinse with some ammonia water & repeat a few times. Rinse well when done. Line up some sticky traps behind the fridge. The mice found a playground amd they will return.

Bad smell coming from back of fridge


The adhesive is a contact adhesive and gets soft from the heat of the compressor. The idea is that condensate drips from the in cabinet drain onto this drainpan. The drainpan then is heated by the compressor running and water evaporates. The drainpan can get yucky from dust and bugs collecting in it. Difficult to remove but not impossible, you just glue it back in place when you refit. It is usually glued in place at the time the compressor is fitted. Your best bet would be to clean it in place and spong up the liquid. I usually put in a quarter teaspoon of granular chlorine (pool) into the drainpan and this keeps things a bit cleaner.
