Hello, Thank you for using this service, I will be helping you with your problem today
This keeps poping up inside the freezer ?
No that doesn't look like it. All I can see is the top of the drain pipe (just the opening) It only works its out about 1/4 to 3/8 of an inch,but that is enough to not let the water from coils drain out. It just freezes up again and then the water spills over the little ditch below the drain pipe opening an into bottom of freezer.
I think you are right, it probably was not sealed correctly at the factory and took a few years to work its way loose. I have not tried waterproof bathroom caulk. Hope that works. Replacing tube would not solve problem I guess. I just defrosted it again and tube was actually about 1/2 inch up out of hole, pushed up by ice buildup around tubes flange-type lip at opening. Has about a 1/8 lip on it, so I will try and caulk beneath the lip. Is that what you are suggesting?
Yeah, I thought maybe a clamp or something fell off below the freezer. Seems pretty dumb to just have that tube hanging there. Hope the caulk holds. thanks for your help
