Water in fridge. How do i find the drain tube


Answers :

There is water in the fridge because the drain hole in your evaporation pan is clogged with dust and dirt. Remove the low front panel, it lifts off. Get a flash light and look around in there. You should see the evaporation pan, usually covered with lint and such.

The freezer works but the refrigerator section is 55 degrees. I turned it off overnight and a quart of water came out the bottom.

However, I cannot find where the drain tube inlet is. Where is it on this mode

Water accumulates under the crisper Hello I have the same problem in my Frigidaire model # FRT21P5AW7. Water accumulates under the crisper.
