SOURCE: How do i unblock the drain hole of my Miele kfn12823sd fridge freezer

Water is supposed to drain down a small drain line to a pan down near the compressor where warm air from the condenser fan will blow warm air over the water and evaporate the water again an put it back into the air inside your home, office or wherever your refrigerator is located. Over time that little drain tube gets slime, algae and a gooey white paste gunk that fills the drain line sides up like If blocked by gunk or ice you will see trails of liquid leaking down the rear wall of fresh food compartment until it reaches the crisper drawers. Gunk is an accumulation of algae slime and just crud that appears from nowhere in a refrigerators defrost condensate drain lines. This is not always the same with every model as you may see frozen ice flowing down the rear wall of freezers on side by sides. Here is an example Click here=> Whirlpool Leak Photo taken by TechnicianBrian. And in this photo are several parts listed in photo group #1 were it is most likely running down the wall=> MagicChef CTB1921AR fresh food section. If you still have questions please ask and rate me if I was able to explain this well enough. Every refrigerator is made different so these are examples only. The key is to find if ice or just gunk has blocked you defrost drain. Unplug and then remove the rear panel in back of freezer. We need to see if the water is overflowing the condensate drain tray or if the blockage is in the turn the drain leads down back of your refrigerator. Much more on this page=> Leaking Refrigerators! If you run into any problems along the way of repair please let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Water leak fridge

The condensation in a fridge is generally routed to a small drain hole at the bottom at the back. The water drained off here normally drips onto the compressor unit (the big black ball thing at the back) where it gets evaporated off, due to the heat the compressor generates. Before taking steps to unblock the drain, you might consider defrosting the fridge first. When unblocking the drain, do not use wire, unless the fridge is switched off and unplugged, you never know where that wire will end up (electrocution risk!). There are two good ideas for clearing the blockage. The best way off clearing the tube is with compressed air, often difficult to get in your kitchen, but don't despair, there could be two solutions in your garden shed. If you have a Weed-killer Spray that uses a pump to pressurise the spray pot, you could use that to clear the blockage (with a bit of ingenuity). Clean the spray thoroughly first, you don't want to poison anything in the fridge, and use the spray with no liquid in it. You can take off the spray nozzle and use the pipe in the hole. If you need to manually unblock the tube, you could use a hard nylon "cord" that is used in a garden strimmer. Pocking that down the hole and into the pipe should do the trick. It's flexible enough to get around the corners in the pipe and when it emerges at the other end it won't electrocute you if it touches a live connection. Lastly, having removed the blockage, put a very tiny bit of "plughole unblocker" fluid in the pipe, that will clean out all the other residue not pushed out with the cord. Good Luck!

at the back of the fridge there is a water drain hole. this will be blocked. you will have to unblock by pushing a thin wire etc down it, then pour a little warm water down to confirm it has been unblocked. if otherwise

There are two issues that may cause leaks near the door of your fridge. The fridge door may not close in full or the rubber gasket which encompasses the door frame may be clogged or torn, thus causing condensation and leaks. To repair this problem, you need to discover the faulty component. If the gasket is dirty, clean it by rinsing with a sponge. Check if an item in the refrigerator is preventing the door from closing properly. If the gasket is somehow impaired, replace it. When buying a new gasket, it is best to buy one that matches your fridge model or type of door. The more general the gasket, the harder it is to install it.

If the leak caused by the gasket, you may have to check the door and ensure that it closes tightly. If it does not close well, you may use the door screws and bolts to fix the problem. Another remedy is to put the refrigerator at a slight angle. Some fridges have adjustable legs, but if your model does not have such, you may want to buy some wooden shims or sheets of plywood and put them beneath the fridge.
Fridge Leaks due to the Drain Pan
The drain pan functions to catch water from condensation so that it does not leak over the floor of your kitchen. If the drain pan is somehow damaged, it may be the reason why you have a puddle of water around the fridge. The pan is located underneath the fridge. Pull it off, drain the condensed water from it, and check if there are any punctures into it. If there are some, you should buy a new pan or somehow repair the current one. One possible way to check your drain pan is to fill it with tap water once you have cleaned it.

Hope this helpout.......

Bosch intelligent frost free 40

The small drain pipe on the back of the fridge gets clogged, hence no drainage when defrosting, hence ice blocks the airflow between the freezer compartment and the fridge compartment.
Remove the rubber stop from the drain pipe and clean (can be found above the motor)
Defrost the fridge for a few days (it takes at least 48 hours). During this time, if you are not brave enough to remove the internal panels of the freezer and continually clean the water, check for water coming out and clean.
If during the defrost there is no water coming out the drain pipe, use about 2m of flexible and strong wire to clean the pipe.
The aim is to unblock the pipe once the ice has melted.

Hello help People, Water is dripping very slowly from the back of the fridge ceiling seemingly coming from the drain in the freezer? We cleaned out both the freezer and fridge and allowed for some...

maybe the drain is blocked further along - at the rear of the fridge. Sometimes there is a small bend or elbow in the drainage system that blocks.Check the outlet to see if water is actually coming out at all.
