Unless something toxic was introduced to the refrigerator by you, if it is still cooling fine, it is not part of the refrigerant system and should be fine if cleaned up with hot soapy water. Without knowing exactly what it is, though, I can only tell you that it did not come from the refrigerator's sealed system.
If you would be so kind, would you please remember to rate my service at the top of the page before you leave today? If you don't, I receive zero credit for my work. You may post back at anytime with follow up questions. Thank you so much!
Oh, that is used to make the drawers and shelves slide. Just wipe it out, it is a food grade lubricant.
Sorry, I did not realize it was new.
It will be fine, they use a lubricant during manufacture to prevent scuffing the side walls. It must have gotten overlooked during final stages.
That is fine, it is just the drip tray for the defrost water. It is nothing to be concerned about.
No, there is nothing to fix, it is how it is supposed to be. The evaporator coil is above that tray and when it goes into defrost, that water goes into that tray and drains to a small pan below the cabinet.
It tapers and drains to a hole in the center, it will be fine.
Okay, thank you.
It is part of the number 232 assembly at the link below.
See the link below.
It won't load but there is nothing wrong with the tray, it is how it is supposed to be.
The fresh? The evaporator coil is behind that back panel. What you are seeing is the drip tray. It is all okay, there is nothing that needs to be done with it.
Freon is in the tubing of the coil, that area is not going to seal anything. If the gap looks bad, bend the right side up, it is aluminum and will easily bend to adjust the appearance.
There is no seal, it is not designed to seal. The water just drips down from the coil as it defrosts and drains it to the condensate pan below the cabinet.
The gap you are seeing is between the drip tray and the metal cover that has all the holes in it for air flow. Nothing is meant to seal there. If that gap bothers you, bend the tray up on the right side. The refrigerant system is all sealed and there are no toxins in your refrigerator. If the refrigeration system leaks, it leaks as a gas anyway, not a liquid that is going to drip through that gap.
