Evaporator coils ice up after a few days and the refrigerator comparment only stops cooling. The unit is 2 years old. When removing the backing from the inside of the fridge and after thawing out the coil it will start working again, but only for a couple of days. At the bottom of the coil there is a drain, but the water just sits. I can see in the drain hole and it looks clear, but when I stick a small plastic flixible probe down it, it just stops.

Refrigerator I have a BPL Frost Free double door refrigerator with the freezer at the top.

It was OK for a week now again ice accumulation is beginning near the door/I think it is ice accumulation in the drain perhaps, but why does ice accumulate? Do I need to pay for this consultation?

Ice freezes in freezer bottom and drain stops up causing water to drip into refrigerator floor. Have to remove freezer pan and use hair dryer to thaw out drain line. Maybe the defrost heater is not working right.

I have a Whirlpool refrigerator that leaks water into the cool section which I assume is because of a stopped up or partially blocked drain from the automatic defrost from the freezer. It is empty now (between tenants) and thus a good time to repair the drain or other repair if I am wrong. I have looked at it and do not see an obvious location or access to it. I am a licensed air conditioning contractor and thus am fairly good at this sort of thing. Can you advise and more specifically attach a


It is an excellent time to attempt the repair. While I don't have a picture indicating the drain tube location, I can say with some certainty that it starts at the back center of the freezer section and runs down the back outside wall of the unit, en ... Whirlpool Refrigerators

It could be a freon leak, or the compressor is not staying on.  If you can hear a clicking sound coming from the back every couple of minutes, your compressor overload is kicking off.  More than likely you either have a freon leak, or a def ...

GE refrigerator TNX22PA Drain tubing in freezer keeps clogging up with ice leading to the fan stopping and the freezer and frigerator compartment warming. 4 repairmen (3 from GE) have thawed the tubing. The best answer that I've gotten about the problem is that the tube itself has "softened" b/c of age(!) but cannot be simply replaced as it is integrated into the insulation. Has this been an ongoing problem, and is there any other option other than replacing an otherwise functioning reprigerator

VintageKeeper WineCooler After working for a while at setting of 55, it appears to freeze up (as ice crystals form on the vents of the refrigeration unit) and it stops cooling. This may be totally unrelated to the problem, but several years ago the water drain tube would drip water, sometimes quite a bit. We added a jar and eventually the tube sealed itself. Few months back it started leaking again and then ultimately quit. Any help? Thanks, Sandy

Our 2-year old Whirlpool side by side refrigerator is not cooling. Cooling power seems to have been reduced over a couple of days as it didn't die suddenly. Initially the compressor wasn't going. A repairman replaced the relay which didn't fix the problem. Another repairman drained the system to remove 'blockages'. This also didn't fix the problem. We had the compressor replaced. This worked for 2-3 days, but it seemed to be running a lot. Then, it stopped cooling again. The repairman came and r
