No water dripping onto motor evaporator tray
Pushiing a pipe up the drain from the bottom,hit something,pulled covers off freezer element up top looking for drain opening,no luck,poored in metholated spirits which worked on kelvinator to clear bacterial growth in drain pipe but liquid comes out at front of fridge through vent near door.

Fridge is a Samsung self defrosting,condensate from evaporator should exit through pipe to top of motor,this water migrates through the bottom of the freezer compartment and exits through a vent on the underside of the freezer floor and drips down close to the fridge door,have removed the vertical panel back of fridge with the control knob,only seems to expose cold air vent from freezer comp,pooring water over evaporator element to check exit point to motor futile.numbers on back of unit S24enpswqn xsa, sd162q /liu/t3 06204D dax600184D , I think.hard to read.
Hoping you are able to come up with a solution following my further info.
Hi there and welcome to JA,When you removed the fan panel in the freezer, was there any ice build up ?Any chance of the model number also please?
I seem to achieved a fix,what ever gunge was growing in the pipe appears to have expunged itself,probably the Metho killed the bacterial growth,but water did get to the motor evaporator "pond',so i am hoping my luck will hold.hoping i now have something in the 'bank' in case i need it in future.,could not find a model number,only those quoted.
Follow through with half a cup of hot water into the drain gutter under the evaporator okay*
Ok will follow your advice,thanks,
Thank you for the answer given, this was my first attempt at seeking help for a problem for which I thought I knew the answer from experience with a previous model fridge, and perhaps I was a bit hasty in expecting an immediate reply, i am a bit reluctant to prise the fan assembly away from the back of the freezer to tip hot water down but will keep that in mind should the problem reoccur.
If there is an ice build up, then doing a 12-24 hour defrost is usually sufficient.I always use half a cup of hot water down the drain tube, along with a length of whipper snipper cord. Been doing it this way for 12 years now and it works every time*Thank you for using the service, sorry for the delayed response, I took the question on the moment I logged into the site and saw that no one had answered you yet.If you have any further questions or advice, feel free to ask, I am happy to helpAUSSIE- Repair Tech.41082.0631042014
