Can not immediately locate manual.
If this unit is a cooler, check this:

Anything that can effect air flow. Fans not running or running in wrong direction.
Too much product in unit.
Thermostat set too low or stickes and unit does not shut off unit.
Possibly has a defrost timer. Most coolers do not but some do. Look for one and see if it is working. Make a mark on the face and wait 15 minutes to see if it moves.
Drain pan clogged.
Doors not closing or seals not sealing.

these are the things to check out.

Drain pan in whirlpool side by side refrigerator fills and overflows


do you have water hooked up to the machine?if so check the plastic lines that go to the water valve,i couldn't figure out why there was so much water in pan,all it is is when the fridge defrosts the heater comes on in freezer and melts the ice off of the evaporator coil and the water goes through the drain tube down near compressor to evaporate,i kept looking and stuck my hand in and there was a fine spray of water coming from a pinhole in one of the water lines,the owner never vacuumed
out the coil,so the machine was running hotter than normal,you can try shutting off the water valve that feeds the fridge and see if it stops overfilling,if it does you could have a hole in one of the lines,if there isn't any water hooked up to the fridge check the condenser coil to see if it's clogged with dust,this is how the heat escapes from the machine and the heat is what evaporates the water in the pan,also check the door gaskets,if they're torn or not sealing good warm air will get into the freezer causing ice buildup from warm and cold air mixing and forming ice,like i said the water that goes into the pan is from when the fridge goes into defrost,there's either more ice that's forming from an air leak or water is leaking from the filter line or one of the water lines.good luck with the detective work

Why would ice form in Built in ge model zis42nyb?


Sounds to me that the condensate drain tube is blocked. Just below the evaporator ZIS42NYB Freezer Section is the drip pan that collect water and drains the water away to the warm side where the condenser evaporates the water back into the air inside your home. Here is a kit designed to prevent water from freezing the drain opening=> WR49X10021 Drain Pan You can also find other information on my website Appliance 911 If you have questions please let me know, Thanks John Tripp

Fridgidaire ffht1817lw8 noisy operation


Good Afternoon John, thank you for your post! Your new high-efficiency refrigerator may make unfamiliar sounds. These are all normal sounds and soon will become a common hum in your home. This noise also indicates your refrigerator is operating as designed. Hard surfaces, such as vinyl or wood floors, walls, and kitchen cabinets may make sounds more noticeable.


Listed below are descriptions of some of the most common sounds you may hear, and what is causing them:


A. Evaporator: The flow of refrigerant through the evaporator may create a boiling or gurgling sound.


B. Evaporator Fan: You may hear air being forced through the refrigerator by the evaporator fan.


C. Defrost Heater: During defrost cycles, water dripping onto the defrost heater may cause a hissing or sizzling sound. After defrosting, a popping sound may occur.


D. Automatic Ice Maker: If your refrigerator is equipped with an automatic ice maker, you will hear ice cubes falling into the ice bin.


E. Cold Control & Defrost Timer or Automatic Defrost Control: These parts can produce a snapping or clicking sound when turning the refrigerator on and off. The timer also produces sounds similar to an electric clock.


F. Condenser Fan: If condenser coils are located underneath your refrigerator you have a condenser fan. You may hear air being forced through the condenser by the condenser fan.


G. Compressor: Modern, high-efficiency compressors operate much faster than older models. The compressor may have a high-pitched hum or pulsating sound.


H. Water Valve: If your refrigerator is equipped with an automatic ice maker, you will hear a buzzing sound as the water valve opens to fill the ice maker during each cycle.


I. Drain Pan (Non-removable): You may hear water running into the drain pan during the defrost cycle. The drain pan will be located on top of the compressor for air-cooled condensers (black coils on back of refrigerator).


I do hope this information proves to be helpful. Should you need any further assistance please feel free to respond.

Clogged Drain in the fridge causing ice buildup

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.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.

Leaks water in the refrigerator down the back under


Hello, this sounds like you have a blockage in the drain tube, remove panel back/bottom of freezer..you may see ice build up...melt ice with hair dryer/heat gun...you will see a pan below evaporator...melt ice in pan...dry water up in pan with paper towel...now you should see a hole in pan that leads to drain tube...pour some hot water in pan..wait a couple minutes..mop up water and repeat this step 2-3 times....once you have done this find some flexible curtain wire or electrical wire..poke down the hole until you see the water drain..now it is clear..put back panel back and you are good to go. The reason you see water in the fridge is because the water has been leaking into the freezer and down the vent into the fridge instead of running into the drain hole...Please feel free to comment again if you need any further assistance.

Water coming out from underneath


there is an auto defrost on the evaporator coils that melts away any ice or frost buildup. after it melts, it drains into a condensate pan under the fridge to be evaporated by the hot gas line coming out of the high pressure side of the compressor. if there was too much ice, there is too much water that might be overflowing out of the pan (or the fridge is tipped). to avoid ice buildup, make sure the seals on the fridge doors are air tight.

Water pooling and freezing in bottom of freezer. I've shut the valve so no water is going to the ice maker but water still collects. I can't figure where the water is coming from. Can you help? Thanks!


Sounds like the drain from the freezer evaporator coil is plugged causing the condensate to overflow and fill the bottom of the freezer then refreeze. Most freezers have a drain line from the evaporator to the bottom of the refrigerator leading to a collection pan to allow evaporation of the condensate. You may be able to access the evap condensate pan by removing the rear panel of the freezer. I can not say for sure without the specific model of the unit in question.

Freezer icing every 3 weeks


you have aclogged drain. remove the panel in the back of the freezer that exposes the evaporator you will want to shut the unit off too. next remove as much ice from the pan as possoble. use a hair dryer to help get the big stuff loose. now you will want very hot water and pour it in the drain pan. your going to make a mess at frist but you need to do it untill the ice in the drain is melted and the water will flow into the drip pan. make sure you cloan all the food drbris also. after it is clear put the back on and turn the unit back on. you will not get any more ice buildup as long as it stays unclogged. and the ice is from the defrosting of the evaporator.
