SOURCE: Removing the refrigerator drawers from the Electrolux side-by-side refrigerator

Got it. My mother got one of these fridges and was frustrated with the drawers not sliding off to clean. It is designed to dissamble the complete drawer assembly. Start by removing the glass from the top of the chill zone drawer frame. Next grasp the white piece of plastic that the chill zone is written on and pull up. There are 4 pegs which affix the drawer assembly to the fridge. The front two pegs will pop out and then the rear will easily pull. The top drawer assembly must be removed before the bottom two drawer assemblies can be removed.

I also noticed the plastic pieces and tried to pinch them but I couldn't get them to budge. Once I saw the 4 pegs, it made sense.

SOURCE: Bottom freezer door/drawer won't close all the way on one side.

Remove all the food from the freezer and then the drawer from the cabinet. Now using a silicone based lubricant, lube the tracks up real well. Be sure to clean the tracks first if gunked up. Make sure nothing small fell out of the basket over time and is laying on the floor in the rear of the freezer section. Once done, you should be fine.

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.


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.

SOURCE: I can't remove the freezer drawers from my Whirlpool Gold Model # GI5FVAXVB02. Called the company and they couldn't help me.

you have a blocked drain,try this,pull out the machine,unplug it,remove the bottom panel,lie on the floor and with a light look up or feel around,there's a nipple that's there that the water drains out of or drips through,i've been removing the nipple,running it under water to clean it,but it has to go back,if you don't put it back you'll have problems,this keeps the warm air from getting into the freezer,before you put it back on get a hair dryer and melt out the ice,just heat up the back freezer wall and then pour hot water down through the back wall,if the water drains out you don't have to take the freezer draws and racks out,they changed them all around and i can't explain how to do it and if you pull it out and don't line the two wheels up correctly the door won't close right,i mark them with a marker before i pull them out,it sucks to do and is very ridiculous,you need a manual just to remove these parts,if this doesn't have a nipple on it and has a drain hose there you can try to clean it out from that end,you can get a piece of 1/4 in water line like they use for the water lines on the fridge,buy a piece and snake it up through the drain hose and then blow through it then flush water through the back inside freezer wall,slime builds up in the drain hose on all machines so once it's freed up it will drain,you might think that if you go from the back you'll push it up into the freezer and it will happen again it won't,once you hit it and free it up it will break apart and every time the machine defrosts the water will wash any parts that is still in there out.i'll try to see if i can find any videos on line for you to show how to remove the shelves and racks and then to line them up again but try going from the back first.good luck.

SOURCE: water build up underneath deli tray drawer

Ok. I know why this is happening. Or at least in my case.

The coil for the Fridge is stored behind the center panel when looking directly into the the Fridge.

What happens is the drain for the coil becomes iced up. It then wont drain and when the fridge goes into defrost mode the melted water will run out of the bottom of the center panel. This is difficult to see due to all the shelves in the way. i noticed this because I could see ice through the vent holes in my center panel.

To fix this:
Take all the items out of the fridge.
Take all the shelves out so the center panel is exposed.
Remove the 3 screws at the bottom of the panel and single screw under the cover of the shelf rail. (This one is a little hidden) pop off the plastic cover first.

Now you can pull the panel off.
(Note. This can be a little difficult to get off because you have a ton of ice behind there keeping it stuck to together. Just ease it off as much as possible.

When you get this off you'll most like see alot of ice in the tray that the water is draining into. chip this ice away and then I used Hot water to pour into the drain. I would then use a shop vac to **** the water out and put in more hot water until the ice plug is removed and the water can flow freely to the drain pan under the fridge.

That is it. I own this fridge and I've been tired of having to **** water out of fridge with a shop vac every 2 weeks. So I decided to resolve this myself.

*disclaimer. I'm just a DIYer not a Samsung repair person.

Good Luck and I hope this solves your issue.

Whirlpool french door refrigerator evaporator freezes about every 6 or 7 months


First, I'm not a Whirlpool representative.
* Check your warranty. Call for support;
* Contact;https://www.whirlpool.com/owners.html

*** The following is for information only.***
* Original question was slow ice making or melted ice;:
* Most common is ice build up in freezer coils. This happens every time the door is opened. Ice builds up on coils but is normally removed during a daily defrost cycle.
* The cycle may be unable to defrost all ice due to bad air circulation. Usually caused by rubbish blocking fan intake (bottom of freezer tray or wall.) Overloading food may cover the intake.
* Remove all food from freezer. Check for fan blockage. There should be a steady flow of cold air. If not then your freezer needs to be defrosted.
* Defrost by moving all frozen food to fridge side or cooler. Unplug fridge and open freezer door (drawer). Allow room air to circulate into the freezer. Use a house fan to blow air into freezer. (DO NOT use Hair dryer! It will damage panels.)
* Check and remove melted ice water. Check inner panels of freezer. Once defrosted the panels will be room temperature to the touch. There should not be any condensation or coldness to the panel. If it's still cold then keep defrosting.
* Once the water stops dripping. then close freezer doors.
* plug in freezer and wait 5 mins. Check freezer if inside is cold and the air is blowing cold. Reload freezer with food, take care not to overload or cover fan intake. Monitor for 2 days.

Water under fridge sometimes


You may want to remove all the food, unplug your fridge, and the out the whole thing...melting the ice and cleaning out all the unwanted water. The drawer will be removable, and you can dry under it. Also check the overflow tray under the fridge, if there is one...it'll be full from all the melting.

Refrigerator RF323TE how do I change the water filter?


The filter for the french door refrigerator is probably behind the vegetable drawer, if you do not see it in the upper right hand corner of the refrigerator compartment. Remove the veggie drawer and turn off the water coming into the refrigerator. Rotate the old filter to the unlocked position and remove it. Then take off the protective cap from the new cartridge and insert it into the refrigerator. Rotate it to the locked position. (Rotate the filter to position the label before you insert the filter. Then the filter goes in correctly.) Reinsert the vegetable drawer and close the doors. Then turn the water back on and fill several glasses with water to clean the filter. Pour that water down the drain at your sink.

For pictures of how to hold the filter, see http://www.samsung.com/us/support/owners/product/RF323TEDBSR/AA . See the FAQ on replacing the water filter. I hope this helps.

I purchased whirlpool GX5FHTXVA and there is a divider piece of plastic taped to the bottom of deli drawer, I have no idea where it goes. It is not in the manuel.


The wider end of the piece can be hooked anywhere on the back of the deli drawer. Keep the piece bent when you install it or it will scratch the glass on the front of the drawer. Also, make sure the tip of the smaller end is touching the bottom of the drawer before straightening the divider._1165.jpg
