I have basically the same question as Stanley. About once a week or so, I find water leaking from underneath the freezer side of my refrigerator. I didn't find my model # listed in the answer to his question. And mine has an ice maker. Model # FRS26H5AS.
Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide me with, before having to buy another refrigerator of a different make.
Answer Troy, First check to the defrost drain pan 241697602 is a good idea, make sure there are no cracks or holes in the pan, and the drain hose is seated properly in the pan. Then check to see if there is a sheet of ice on the freezer floor, this would indicate a clogged defrost drain opening and tube, and will need to be deiced and cleared using hot water or a hair dryer and towels to clean up the mess. Make sure both doors are closing and sealing properly. If the issue were the ice maker it would leak more often than once a week, it cycles about every two hours until the ice bin is full and shuts off.
How do I remove the drip pan from underneath the refrigerator?
In order to remove the drip pan from this unit you would need to tilt the unit back and remove from the bottom of the unit. If you are looking to take the water out then it is not necessary as the water will evaporator with the operation of the unit.
Every so often, about once a week, I get water around and under my refrigerator. I have no ice maker.
Answer Hi Stanley, check to see if your drain trough 241801301 or drain tube 240500801 is obstructed. When your freezer enters the defrost cycle to melt frost build up on the evaporator, the water is supposed to go down into the drain pan at the bottom of your unit. If the drain is obstructed, water can leak where it doesn't belong. Hope this helps!
