Hello Mary;

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.

Hi Kloynes,
It could be a problem of LEAKAGE.....Followings steps may help you tackle the problem:
Steps

  1. Check the hose under your fridge that drains condensation and such into a catch tray. Make sure the hose is draining properly.
  2. Blow air through the tube to make sure it is not clogged. A coat hanger wire can be inserted to break up clogs. An alternative method is to use a bicycle pump to force air through the drain hole to remove any obstruction. Vacuum dust bunnies from under the fridge to allow free flow of the air. Most refrigerators periodically blow warm air across the condensation tray. The warm air dries the condensation in the tray.

Tips
  • Clogs are usually caused when dust, moisture and micro-organisms get together in the drain tube. Keep the dust vacuumed from the back and bottom of the fridge. Make sure the drain tube is firmly connected at all points. The drain tube can be flushed with chlorine bleach, rubbing alcohol or other anti-bacterial product. Product selection should be consistent with the tubing material.

Warnings
  • Use caution with anti-bacterial products. Make sure that any such products cannot flow back into the food compartment.

Things You'll Need
  • Wire hanger
  • Anti-microbial agent such as chlorine bleach, rubbing alcohol or anti-bacterial soap.

Thanks

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).

Multi air flow not working how do i fix it


fully defrost the unit with the doors open for a few days!!!

then take the back plate off the freezer {inside}
youll find the blast freezer fans
check they move
and turn it on check they move
if they move aok youve fixed it
if they dont a fan is faulty or sometimes they have an inline fuse
while inside clean the output too the evaporator {a pipe and the bottom of the V
its a water flow for fast defrost{frost free}

usually what happens is over a period of time an ice monster grows
once it gets too big it stops the fans
and the problem spirals
so a really deep defrost and clean of all the pipes
and the evaporator white plastic tray mounted above the compressor
clean out any debree from behind the unit and clean the tray if needed
you can use a bleach solution to clean the fridge
or better is go to the local home brew and as for WPA or use baby milton fluid

anyway to remove any smells place a few dishes of salt
and it will soak up the bleaches

dont forget to dress the evaporator pipes at the V with some salt

Water leaking from bottom of my Bosch fridge (irregular - might be defrosting??)


There is a tray under many refrigerators that traps water so that it may harmlessly evaporate. It or the drip tube may have become dislodged, possibly by cleaning under the unit. The tray should easily be removed, then you may see if it or the tube is the problem.

Leaking water from back on to floor


This could be that the drain tank at thebottom of the fridge is overflowing. Normally the drain water will evaporate off with the heat from the compressor but if possible it is good to clean and drain the collecting tray in the bottom of the fridge. You must have access to the backside of the fridge and remove the tray which is normally a pulllout. Drain , clean and put it back-- slide it in. Hope you do thei. Also make sure that the freezer setings are normal and not set high. During cold season this can condense more water to overflow the drain. Hope you try., Good day

Hi,my bosch f/f is freezing in the veg box and has a lot of ice under the last box in the freezer comp.What is the problem please?


In the back of your fridge you should see a hosepipe connected from the freezer's defrost water drain to the evaporating tray usually located on top of the compressor. The drain is blocked, hence you get ice on the bottom of freezer. The easiest way to clean it is to pull the hose pipe off the fridge outlet and clean the drain upwards with a piece of soft wire or electric cord or something similar. On my fridge (Bosch) I found the drain clogged with a kind of jelly like stuff. The other way to the drain is by removing back panel inside the freezer compartment but be careful, I sort of ripped mine off and broke plastic plugs on which it was fixed. Make sure you know what you doing.

Freezer leaking water and freezing


you probably have a plug in the drain line that normally drains the water when your freezer goes into the defrost mode. at the base of the refrigerator there is a evaporative drain tray where the water drains from the freezer into the tray and evaporates during normal operation of the unit. You should be able to see the drain tube just above the tray. Attach a hose to it and use compressed air to blow through it and clear it out.

Freezer coils frost up within minutes after being turned back on


Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.
