Need Appliance Repair Help? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.
The drip pan doesn't pull out the front. It's designed to be pulled out the back after you remove the compressor. You can try to unscrew the 4 bolts mounting the compressor and see if it'll pull out the back, but if not then you have to remove it like it's intended which is by evacuating all the freon, disconnecting the copper lines going to the compressor, and removing the compressor completely. It's a huge job just to replace the pan so if you can silicone a crack or something like that, that is usually the better option.

I can't control how the refrigerator needs to be repaired. If you knew that was the only way to fix the appliance you wouldn't have asked the question. If all I did was confirm what you suspected then great, I have done my job---now you can decide what you want to do and move on so you don't have to keep looking for other answers that don't exist.
no problem and good luck to you. I'm sorry about the bad news however.
