Water collecting in bottom of unit - Refrigerators


Answers :

Hi.

The drain hole located inside the fridge compartment is probably blocked. Most common reason for drain blockage is water freezing in the drain line. Do a complete defrostor use an hairdryer set on cold to free the drain line. The complete defrost is better.

If that does not do the job use a flexible shaft to free the line from debris.To\015\012 this purpose use a thin flexible shaft called pipe cleaner, along with \015\012warm water and vinegar or citric acid. Contrarily to what suggested by \015\012users I would not use any soap. This can clog the drain more. Best \015\012unclogger in my experience is citric acid and water.Disconnect power \015\012before doing the cleanup.
If that is not enough, inspect drain pan and check the drain exit at the back of fridge.

Here the Pipe Cleaner (click).

Here Citric Acid (Lemon Salt) 7oz.

Defrosting clears the problem most of the times, providing that
the fridge is clean and not too old.

If problem is not condensation and clogged drain hole, check for leaks from icemaker and dispenser.

Water, apparently from the freezer defrosting, collects in the refrigerator (top shelf, bottom crisper). I am unable to determine how it is getting there instead of running to the pan under the fridge. There is often a sheet of ice on the bottom of the freezer cabinet. Refrigerator and freezer work fine in all other regards. The unit is equipped with an icemaker but no water has ever been supplied to it. The unit is in an unheated, no AC garage.

Hello! I have inherited a Kenmore side-by-side refrigerator with a manual that says the model is 106.5702*601 or 106.5703*601.

Following the directions, I turned off the water supply; cut the plastic water line (at the back of the unit that runs from bottom to top); and turned on the water supply to test.
