Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Leaking 'fridge I have a large GE topfreezer fridge about 11 years old. I has been leaking water into the back of the main part of the fridge, and from there, I assume to the floor. I remember having this problem years back and it was solved somehow by defrosting it and turning it off completely--there was something to do with blocked drainage but I can't remember exactly. Is there anything of this nature I can try before calling repair?


Answers :

No but you can clean out the drain yourself if your somewhat handy, pull out fridge about 2 ft see if you see a hose in the middle of the back center ref. going down to the lower back compartment of the ref.usually black in color .if you do then pull the top of the hose were it goes into the ref at center rear of back of ref.. blow through tube with shop vack on both ends and were it goes into re. should or may see some black gunk. that should do it. if you dont see a hose in the back then yours may be internal drain hose and much harder to clean.. hope this helps you
You have to remove the food and ice maker ( if equipped ) , and remove the back panel screws and the panel . Use a hair dryer , start in the center , under the coils , and defrost , until you see the drain hole . Use hot water to help defrost the hole . Once defrosted , use a small hose inserted into the drain hole , and blow thru , to remove any debris , built up inside the drain line . Reassemble .

We own a Kenmore Elite fridge with bottom freezer (model 795.75196400 from 2004). The freezer stopped working over the weekend. It has not always kept the appropriate temperature in the past as the ice in the back would sometimes melt a bit creating a block of ice rather than cubes. That was happening for the past two years. This is the first time the freezer stopped working completely. What can I check or replace?


If you have not done the obvious yet, do so. First,unplug the fridge, let it thaw well.Remove the cover to expose the compressor. I bet the darn thing is completely covered with dust and lint. Blow this clean with a leaf blower. Next, please look at ... Kenmore Elite 22.4 cu. ft. Bottom Freezer Refrigerator with Adjusta Cube Ice Maker

GE Monogram ZIR36NDARH 36" built in fridge and freezer. Both are building up ice on evaporator coils behind vegetable bins. The ice is so thick the drawers hardly closed. I thawed them out with a hair drier last night. Turned unit back on and almost immediately the evap coils started to freeze up again. The condenser coils by the compressor were completely blocked with animal hair and dust. My father in law had never cleaned them in 10 years. He started to creep the temp up over the last couple

Hello, I have a Whirlpool refrigerator/freezer (top freezer unit) Model ER2MHKXPL01, just shy of 6 years old.

I have a westinghouse rj452s fridge and the fridge isnt cooling down, and when I take the panel off in the freezer section, the section that goes to the fridge is nearly blocked by ice, could the drainage tube be blocked or could the fan not be working to blow the air down to the fridge.

Hi, I have a 12 year old F&P fridge, model C270 which is working fine but has leaked twice this week. The leak appears to be coming from the base of the fridge as there is water beneath the vegetable crisper. The plate at the back of the inside of the fridge is still icy, as it normally is. Appreciate any help. Denny


What might be happening is that the drain hole for condensate is blocked causing water to gather beneath the crisper. look for a channel under the evaporator (the icy cold part) and there should be a drain hole some where near check this is not blo ... Fisher and Paykel Refrigerators

My 6yr. old LG fridge/freezer (GR-621RW) has started leaking water. There is a drip coming from a small 'drainage hole'? at the top of the fridge. Water accumulates at the back of the top shelf and then runs down under the bottom drawer and out on to the floor. After mopping it up, it takes about 2 days to pour out on to the floor again. There doesn't seem to be any way to unclog a drain as the back of the fridge is solid. How can I solve this problem?

We bought a GE PFSS6PKXASS about 2 years aand it worked fine until we noticed water leaking out from the back interior wall of the refrigerator section... it collects on the bottom of the fridge, partially freezes, then drips out along the freezer door.

Our Jenn-Air refridgerator is 11 years old and is leaking from the back onto the floor. We looked in the back behind the cardboard panel and saw that the pipes around the( pump ?)located in the lower right of the fridge were coated with frost. The fridge is still working and is 38 degrees and everything is still frozen in the freezer. The frost is melting and dripping onto the floor. The model number is JTB 1988 AEA. Serial Number is 12995255WB. Any idea what could be causing this?

My fridge clicking, buzzing and then clicking back off. Inside it was starting to warm up and was starting to leak water onto the floor. Today someone came out and replaced the relay. After 4 hours the freezer is down to 30 degrees but the refrigerated section is only 58 degrees. It does not sound like the fans are functioning and there is frost starting to accumulate on the back panel of the freezer. My fridge is an 8 year old Maytag. Is the compressor bad or is it something else?


Hello, no if the compressor is still running and you are not hearing the click you should be ok. It will take approx 8-10 hours for it to get to normal temp. The frost you mention on the freezer panel could be a problem with the defrost system. I wou ... Maytag Refrigerators

My sub zero fridge is leaking water. The drain at the bottom of the fridge is blocked and the water overflows and eventually flows out when the door is opened. How can I unclog this drain. This is a problem off and on and I'm wondering if it happens when the fridge door isn't closed all the way? Do I need to defrost?I'd like to be able to fix this myself instead of calling service. I don't how old the fridge is and I don't have any paperwork on it. I estimate that it is probably at least 10 year

The freezer has stopped cooling...meaning the fridge has stopped too. The fan continues to run, but blows warm air. Twice before the fan had frozen and stopped blowing the cold up to the fridge...we had that part replace each time. now it seems to be a different problem. Had noticed in the week before failure that the icemaker had started to leak causing a block to form in the ice tray. Any suggestions?

The fridge was leaking water under the freezer door. There was a thick layer of ice at the bottom of the freezer. There was a lot of congealed 'muck' around the drainage hole and under the metal tray surrounding the drainage hole. I cleared all the 'muck' out and using a small paintbrush cleaned out the drainage hole. I have switched the freezer back on. However, the bottom part of the actual freezer door seems to be continually wet, and water is continuing to drip from the bolt that holds the b
