My drainage pipe is not draining on a chest freezer we just got. There was ice melted on bottom, could the drainage pipe be frozen with ice? My neice gave just gave us this, and there was a huge block of ice that was melted on bottom. We had to pour hot water in it to get it out. She was letting someone use this at her rental house, and this is what we found. So, we are thinking the drainage pipe may have gotten water in there and froze as well.

Kenmore 20.6 cu. ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator
I defrosted my Miele KFN 8462 S frost free fridge freezer today because of an ice build up on the bottom of the freezer and in the drainage hole in the fridge.
I (incorrectly) used an air heater on a chair in front of the open freezer door for about an hour, thinking that there was a wall of ice inside which needs melting and I don't have a lot of time.
Fast forward 12 hours and all ice seems to have been melted away and water cleared up ... but, none of my freezer shelves (bar the bottom
Miele KFN8462S Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
Bottom freezer Over the last few weeks my freezer has been collecting water at the bottom inner floor and freezing it. Now I have notice a temp. change. I pulled the back off and noticed that there was significant ice collected on the right hand side as you face the freezer. It seems to be focused around the copper pipes and pipes that lead into the coils. I melted the ice with a hair dryer and put it back together. Any clue to which part is bad?
It may be that the door was completely closed at some time this will cause this fault, or you have a defrost sensor fault.\015\012Regards\015\012Advisor ...

I have a Kenmore model #106.57412600 . The freezer side is vey cold -10F bu the refrigerator side is 50F . I suspected a poor air circulation problem so I checked the inlet duct of the refrigerator side and it was full of frost. I then exposed the evaporator to check for frost and ice there. It was normal frost no icing on the coils but because the freezer was so cold when the defrost cycle melted the ice the water froze at the bottom of the freezer because the pan is aluminum and the drain fro
Whirlpool 25.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with In-Door-Ice Dispensing System
Wwe have a Whirlpood Ultraease Pluswater filtration system fridge. Model number ED22QF. The water and the ice is not currently hooked up. The cooper pipe by the fan condensates and then the ice will melt. Instead of dripping in the pan, it drips on the floor. I also do not have a cardboard backing covering the back of the fridge. What would you suggust I do to fix this issue.? What is the cardboard backing or coverplate (not the plastic one on the bottom front) utilized for?
I have a GSH25JSRF SS
Water leaks from my fridge and the ice dispenser is fine but the water doesnt even reach the ice maker and instead leaks out so i have no ice and water on the floor. I read up something on here and it told me to remove the pipe at the bottom of the fridge from a connector and to push the water dispencer and see if water comes out the pipe but it doesnt come out.

New (3 days old) Kenmore Elite refrigerator model 795.7103 with ice maker. Water supply line to the ice maker immediately froze up so won't fill tray to make ice. Serviceman came out and melted ice blockage in line which allowed flow (injected warm water into line). He told us to keep fridge temp at 38 or higher. With setting at 39 the line froze again. Do we keep messing with this - is there a solution that doesn't involve repeatedly thawing out the water line? Or do we tell them to take
First of all, your freezer should be much lower than 38 degrees. For the ice maker to even work proplerly it has to be below 10 F. Some models have a heater that goes around the fill tube to keep that from happening, but in my opinion, if its only th ...
With our new home, we inherited an RCA No Frost MSX22GR side by side fridge with ice maker. Occasionally, water drains from the bottom of the freezer side and leaks out the door. It seems to be coming from a drainage hole in the bottom rear of the freezer compartment, water drains under the bottom pull out basket as overflow? Freezes then when next cycle for the ice maker, the excess water flows out the door. How do I fix this?
Inside the freezer of my General Eletric GSH25JSTA SS, I seem to have a small trickle of water running down the back of the freezer. This trickle of water freezes at the bottom of the freezer. The water seems to melt and leak onto the floor. It's not a huge leak, but it'll get a towel somewhat wet/damp. I turned the freezer off overnight and wiped up the melted water. However, when I turned the freezer back on, the trickle of water started again and froze on the bottom. Any help would be g

Our Jenn-Air side by side refrigerator with ice-maker has a problem. Quite often it makes a buzzing sound which seems to be more frequent than is normal. There is water inside the freezer which solidifies into ice on the bottom and on the bottom of the door shelves. Then the refrigerator defrosts and the food melts. Then when you open the door water comes out. After clearing that up, the whole cycle starts again. The freezer gets cold again ..... I tried turning off the ice-maker by lifting the
Hi crissy_rose and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. \015\012\015\012It is noted that you have a Jenn Air side by side. From reading about the water build-up it sounds as if the evaporator drain may be clogged with ice. Therefore each ti ...
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
Hi Garth, did you clean out the drain hole where it goes into the catch pan? It will drain when the freezer goes into its defrost mode, this is where the water will come from. Try and use compressed air if available, or run hot water down the hole to ...

I have a Hotpoint RFA17 fridge/freezer and I get a build up of water on top of the drain hole at the back of the fridge and excess water under the veg trays. I can push a piece of rope down the plug hole, but it hits something near the bottom. I can also push it up from the bottom, but again something is blocking the path. Is this a straight through pipe or is the pipe possibly iced up near the bottom? Thanks for advice in advance.
The top freezer is frosting up. While looking inside the main fridge, in the back there are two square openings. One is dripping water, the other frosted up. In the back of the freezer there appears to be a fan, with a place for water to collect in the bottom. This area is all ice. We took everything out and unplugged the fridge. Taking a hairdryer to melt the ice, it melted and ran into the main fridge, not thru the plastic tube in the back. Our freezer is usually pretty packed. This is 16 mont

Whirlpool ET1MHKXM Top Freezer Refrigerator
When the freezer defrosts it partially melts the ice cubes, the ice builds up between the inside back and the outside back. This ice gets hit by the fan making an awful grinding noise water leaks out of the bottom of freezer onto the floor. and the bottom of the inside of the freezer fills up with ice. This happens at least once a week and we have to take it all apart and clean out all the ice and start over,and hope we are home to hear it grinding the next time and shut it off. It is only 1 yr

My Frigidaire FRS6R35W0 refrigerator has ice in the bottom of the freezer. I took the back pane off and the evaporator drip pan was ful of Ice. I melted all the ice but water would not drain out the drip pan. It felt like there was a mechanical blockage , not ice. Is there a valve on the bottom of the drip pan.

Frigidaire Custom Imperial 19 cu. ft. refrigerator w/freezer at bottom and ice dumps in box on freezer door. Stopped cooling as well and so turned thermostat up to coldest setting. All meat had thawed and ruined in freezer especially in bottom of basket. Also ice in box on door will sometimes melt and water and ice will be in box. When I took the freezer apart I had to use a hair dryer to remove the insulation in front of the evaporator coil as it had flat pieces and chunks of ice attached and
My ge side by side has is making ice but sometimes it is half way frozen where you can see the water in the cube. I also found that during the day the ice will melt in the ice holder and drip water all in the freezer. The bottom half of the freezer is still frozen.

Every 3 days ice accumulates at the bottom of the freezer eventally creeps out the door , and of course melts when it creeps under the door to the floor. 1/2 inch of ice is common in about 3 days & must be removed manually from the bottom of the unit.. we've turned the water supply off ,thinking it may have been leaking from the ice maker ,but no difference.Got any ideas ?
Maytag MZD2766G Side by Side Refrigerator
Refrig I have a side by side and the freezer keeps defrosting and leaving water at the bottom. The water then freezes leaving a sheet of ice at the bottom. I have seen the heating coil at the bottom back wall go on and cause this melting process. Question: Is there a timer/temp element that I need to look at? My impression is that the defrost cycle is coming on too often or staying on too long. Any ideas? Jerry
Defrost cycles normally are timed for 8 or 12 hour cycles. This would be normal. However the drain system on your freezer section is plugged. You have to defrost it and check the drain under the coil where you seen the heater on. Make sure it is not ...
Refridgerator problem my refridgerator is gathering water and ice on the bottom of the fridge part. i already took of the covers in the freezer part and melted the ice and dried it up , that lasted for about three days now the water and ice are back. i'mnot sure how to find or access the drain tube that was on my old fridge.

Our GE artica, 6 years old has freezer temp at 35 degrees , and refrigerator at 50 degrees. Water is flowing from dispenser, as normal but there is no ice. Ice/frozen things in freezer melted and water poured out on the floor. This is a side by side model, ciounter depth, we had a previous problem some months ago where the water line froze up nand we could not get ice, but using a hair dryer like people suggested fixed that. It has been fine until today.

Our Bosch icemaker was replaced along with the filter that comes with the unit, but we have noticed a flaky, maybe greasy particles and residue floating in the glass after the ice has fully melted. We have a Bosch integrated unit with double french doors and bottom freezer. We then emptied the entire ice tray and compared that with fresh water from our tap. The particle residue is absent in the tap water. We do not have any water purification or filtration or RO units installed. Any ideas?
Hello. Woobie here.\015\012\015\012A new filter contains activated carbon, and, if your particles are dark, this is probably the problem. A new cartridge will have some loose material in it, and this flushes on through to the dispenser( ...
