If the condesor fan motor was ever changed you could have a wrong rotation motor on it. Hot Air should blow across drain pan not **** cool air across pan

Leaking in front of Refrigerator this morning took off front plate drip pan full looks like water over flowed from pan. no other leaks inside and out.


hum the drip pan should not get full as the heat from compressor. the way the drip system is suppose to work is that the heat causes the water to evaporate before it builds up to much in pan? Therefore u may be dripping to much water in line due to? is there a heavy build up of ice in freezer? if so bad defrost terminator or simply the cold control is set to high? the optimum setting for ur controls should be medium or half way

Water leaking under fridge


a contant runing of water is most likely a leak in the ice maker supply hose , an intermitant drip of water is a drip pan thats full in bottom of fridge (closest to floor ) this water comes from the auto defrost cycle most times this water evaporates away , but as fridge gets older it makes more frost that needs melted hence more water ,sometimes it over comes the pan and runs to floor , a good flashlight and getting down to look underneath usually tells you source of leak

Drip pan full


Check if the drip pan is fixed to the motor or if it's using the evaporator element make sure it is warm enough to evaporate the water.

Whirlpool side by side full drip pan


The condenser fan should be running whenever the compresser is running. With all of that condensate, I would look at your door gaskets. If they are leaking and you are in a high humidity area you will produce more condensate than what the pan can Handel. Then again. If the compresser is running the heat from the discharge line should evaporate the water with ease. I would look at the seals possibly leaking and ignore the full drain pan.

How do i remove a drip pan from a kenmore refrigerator


The drip pan collects water when the freezer goes into a defrost cycle. Most times there is very little water and the water evaporates quickly. When there is a problem with the freezer or the water does not evaporate between defrost cycles, the drip pan fills with water. If the front bottom of your refrigerator has a grille, you access the drip pan from the front. If there is no grille, access the drip pan from the rear.

Instructions
Rear Access

1 Unplug the refrigerator from the wall outlet. Pull the refrigerator away from the wall so that you can access the rear of the refrigerator.

2 Look under the refrigerator with a flashlight and locate the drip pan. Often when people install refrigerators they neglect to pull the packing from around the drip pan. The drip pan may have tape or styrofoam around it.


3 Remove any packing material away from the drip pan and pull the drip pan out from under the refrigerator.

Front Access

4 Pull the grille at the bottom of the refrigerator below the refrigerator door with your fingers. The grille secures to the refrigerator with plastic clips.

5 Remove any debris from the access area and throw the debris in the trash. The coils and fan under the refrigerator attract dust and dirt. Clean out the area with a lint brush if you have one.

6 Pull the drip pan out from under the refrigerator.

Unit ED5DHEXWQ bought 2 weeks ago Drip pan over flows- water not evaporating quickly. Company tech say I need to modify my frig by placing a heater. 2 The refrig side is not gettinG COLD ENOUGH - MY MILK...


The tech is full of beans. The heat from a normally charged refrigerator is more than enough to evaporate water in drip pan.
The indication of improper charge is that obvious. Fridge warm freezer ok would be a coil blocked with ice, however drip pan overflowing is a charge problem, Ask for a field supervisor.

Pan below compressor was full of water. I manually


Water should show up there on a regular basis when the refrig defrosts. Then, the air flow over the warm coils and compressor will evaporate the water. This is normal.

Drain pan underneath fridge is filling on a daily basis


The system is designed to evaporate that water using the warmth of the compressor.. is your compressor warm ? (the drip tray sits on top of it) I see that model has an Ic e maker... to check that the ice maker refill is not running on too long, switch off the ice maker, by lifting the wire arm that checks the level of the ice in the storage bucket.. leave it turned off for a day or two.. empty the drain pan, and check it again after 24 hours.. but if the ice is already full, the water problem may APPEAR to be resolved already, but will return when the level drops and the ice production begins again.
If it is just condensate, then the drain pan should be able to contain the amount it produces, but 3-days straight, would indicate to me, that is not that... if your water pressure is good, it may be that the ice tray filler solenoid is being held open a fraction too long (maybe a second or so) and as the fridge is new, it will be making lots of ice to fill the container up,... so lots of small overfills.. mounting up to a full drain pan. Under normal use,.. other than parties and festive nights, when you use a lot, the water should evaporate faster than it is produced, but it shouldn't be happening at all.. if it is that, then turn the tap at the back of the fridge to where the cold water dispenser slows down slightly.. that should be enough to prevent it continuing.. IF that's the problem.
