How do I remove defrost drain pan from this unit? Pan is leaking when defrosting (has crack on edge).

Arthur for Model Number ED2KVEXVBO1

ANSWER Hello Arthur. Normally the unit will have to be tilted to remove a couple of screws and the condenser fan motor and the water valve has to come out to make room for the old defrost drain pan to come... more out and the new one to go in. In some cases the compressor will have to be unbolted and carefully moved aside to get the part exchanged. This is done carefully to prevent breaking the freon lines, causing a condition where a freon certified technician would have to be hired for the sealed system repair. This is a two man job and care should be taken not to lean the unit too far which would allow the compressor oil to enter the freon lines. If this happens, the oil will stop up the capillary line causing a sealed system repair to once again be necessary.
