Question about Bosch KAN60A45G Inox 510 l Fridge Freezer Side-by-Side Freezer, A Energy Rating
Pulled it out to clean and noticed water in the tray. Is this normal. Never noticed before
My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.
It is normal to have water in your evaporator drain pan.
Your refrigerator goes through a defrost cycle every 8-10 hours, where your refrigerator will shut down for about 20 minutes and your defrost heater turns on.
You do not need to clean your drain pan. You have a condenser fan that blows across the drain pan to evaporate the condensate.
You drain pan will fill during the defrost cycles. the condenser fan blow across the drain pan and will evaporate the water.
The amount of water in your drain pan will depend on conditions such as high frost in the freezer.
Mary, you had just happened up the drain pan not completely evaporating the condensate.
Sounds to me like you are in good shape.

remove freezer back panel and you will see a tray at the bottom with a drain hole in the middle and it is this which is blocked. if blocked with ice, clear with some hot water and make sure drain is free and water flows away

I have the same problem,warranty just ran out but its been
leaking on and off for ages,must be this model.This much Ive figured out,what
happens is the drain hole gets blocked from ice freezing over the hole at the
back of freezer, the drain water has to go somewhere, since it cant leak out of
the drain hole where it suppose to it ends up pooling under the vege
compartment before ending up on the kitchen floor.Now if this is your only
problem,someone suggested to me to run a piece of copper wire from the
defrost heater to the drain hole so no ice can build up there,hence no more
leakage.To do this you'll have to take the back panel off and see for
yourself,I did this and Im a novice.Make sure you turn off and unplug the
fridge first and wait for it to defrost.
Now I think I have other things wrong with mine,after leakage problem the refrigeration compartment wont cool anymore but the freezer part remains working as usual.Ive nailed this down to one of the following not working... Thermostat / timer / defrost heater.So one or more of these needs replacing.Im just trying to look for a manual which shows the nuts and bolts or the refrigerator (not the "How to use" type manual which I have).
