Question about Blomberg Refrigerators

Open Question

Blomberg Fridge #BRFB1150 is collecting moisture. Tried various settings, plunged drainage hole, and checked the collection tank. Before long we've got half a centimetre of water pooled in the bottom.

Yes, you are correct, that is a drain. Use a turkey baster with hot (not boiling) water to flush out the drain tube until water will flow out into the drain pan under the refrig. (where the air blown over it will cause it to evaporate)

Possible cause it's out of gas.

you might have to get a refridgeration mechanic to regas it, or/and fix any gas leaks

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. TechnicianBrian.com. 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 is collecting at the bottom of the fridge under the salad trays constantly


Whenever that happens on our fridge we find that the drain out the back is blocked. Have a look inside the fridge on the back wall, you may see some guttering that guides the inside moisture to a hole. That hole drains to a pan on top of the motor. Heat from the motor evaporates the water. I have always managed to clear ours by poking a bit of flexible wire down the hole. It's not a frequent occurrence, probably 7 or 8 years between blockages.

Water accumulating inside fridge bottom make GE Model #gta18pbnaww


That's normal especially if you tend to leave the door open alot. Moisture from the outside air condenses and drips to the bottom. Also, if the refrigerator is automatic self-defrosting it will melt ice collecting around the refrigerator and the resulting water will collect at the bottom. Check under the food drawers for a drain hole. If it is clogged, clean it out. If it doesn't exist, periodically sponge out the bottom under the drawers.

There was a puddle of water coming from underneath the refrigerator. what would cause this problem


This is due to condesation water overflowing from the defrost collection tank which is normally located on the bottom of the fridge and above the compressor.
Normally sometimes if the fridge was set to lower temperature the defrosted water will be more than normal. So set the fridge to normal settings and check after draining the tank if the fault recurs.
If so check if the drain pipe from the evaporator collection tray is damaged.

We have a hotpoint RLA 34 ( MICROBAN ) FRIDGE . water keeps seeping into the bottom , under the crisper box tried turnining temp down , made sure it's level , no blocked drainage hole . door shuts tight...


You said no blocked drainage hole, where was the drainage hole that you checked located? Did you pour water down this drain, and furthermore did you check that the water you poured into the drain flowed into the condensate pan on the outside of the fridge? Unless you have a problem with an ice maker leaking water, it sounds very much like you do have a blocked drainage hole, otherwise known as a defrost drain. the drain system begins underneath the evaporator coil inside the freezer, this is where the water that is collected in the defrost cycle flows into a drain tube that leads the water down to the condensate pan. The best and safest way to clear out this drain is to blow it out with compressed air, after you remove any and all ice at the beginning of the drainage system, in other words, the hole located underneath the evaporator coil.

Collecting water at bottom of frig inside under drawers.


begin by removing the grill on the front at floor level. look under there and you will see the evaporation pan. next pull the fridge out from the wall so you can get behind it. there you will see the tube. to unclog it you will have to disconnect it at the top and force hot water into it using a turkey baster.

Water collecting on bottom of 13 year old fridge


All refrigerators create water when their cooling coils shed frost build-up - that water typically collects in a tray under the fridge body through a drainage tube that exits from a collection trough inside the fridge under the coil through the back of the fridge housing.

First check the tray to be sure it is not accumulating food particles which ultimately can produce molds. Clean any water from that tray first, then look for the tube exiting on the back of the fridge see whether there is any moisture at the end of the tube under the fridge and notice whether the tray has had any recent moisture. Chances are the tube is either plugged or similarly any connector through the fridge wall.

Now, be CAREFUL not to puncture the hose or the connector with a sharp instrument however the drain path must be cleared. Try blowing through the drain inside the fridge with a straw, then add a small amount of baking soda into the collection trough, adding a small amount of water to dissolve and allow this to gradually drain out normally. Only detach the outside tube if the problem has not been resolved in this manner. The tube can be replaced easy enough, the connector through the back is another question - see you parts dealer if it has been compromised.

Good luck!
