Hello, Thank you for using this service, I will be helping you with your problem today.
Good evening. can you tell me where the water is comming from ? is there a sheet of ice on the freezer floor ?
No ice on freezer floor. Water seems to be dripping from roof of fridge, from the complicated-looking finned areas. The dish beneath the area catches most, but not all of the water.
My husband has a workshop loaded with carpentry tools and other common tools, but I'm not sure if special tools are required for this fridge project.What tools do I need?
One more question: Once the drain is defrosted, will I find foreign material in it which needs to be cleaned out with a brush or something? Guess I'm asking what caused this problem in the first place, and how can it be prevented from happening again?
Thanks. I will try this. (Yes, I do this stuff myself; my retired husband never seems to have the time.) If it works, you'll definitely get a tip! Thanks, again.
Sorry I was so late getting back to you but we had to wait a little for all the Easter ham and stuff to get eaten up before trying your advise. I wasn't sure how much of the refrigerator needed to be dismantled but figured to start by pulling the plug.
Got everything out of it, started unscrewing the freezer floor and asked my husband to keep disassembling it while I went I went to work. He got the whole freezer apart but said he couldn't get at that small bracket at the top of the (lower) fridge ceiling where the red lines were drawn on the diagram.
Turns out that part didn't have to come loose; after the ice melted, the problem seemed to resolve itself. (Hope it lasts)
Anyway, thanks to you, we saved $ by not having to get a new fridge!I'm sending you a bonus...thanks again!
