How many hours should I plan on for remove and replace of W10199913? Thanks.
Answer Hello JB. There is no way of determining the time it will take you. This is based on several factors on determining the time. A technician can usually replace the drip pan W10199913 within 30 minutes to 1 hour.
The drip pan is overflowing water down the fan hole and back of the freezer. Is there a heater in the pan drain pipe or hose that prevents freezing and stopping the water from draining properly. I assume the heating element is ok because there is water running over the drip pan, but I don' t understand why it's not draining thru the hose?
Answer Hi Pat. You need to remove all the shelves and baskets in the freezer. Dump the ice bin and shut off the ice maker off. Then you need to remove the lower half of the rear back. Then get the sink water hot and use a measure cup to direct the hot water in the drain hole. Catch all over fill / water with a dozen towels. Make sure you can use compressed air or use a tube to stick in the drain hole and see if it is clear once the drain hole is unfrozen. Once this is established, you can use the drain tube heater kit to insure this frozen over wont happen again. You will need to follow the instructions closely as you do not want to connect it directly to the heater itself. It is a long bendable solid copper wire length that needs to be centered in the hole so it does not touch the sides. This part # 8201771. Thank You.
Can evaporator drip pan and/or evaporator be removed from inside freezer compartment, or must the unit be pulled from the wall to access some sort of access panel?
Answer Dan, Yes, the defrost drip pan can be replaced from inside the freezer compartment. You will need to be careful, and it will require removing the ceiling glass, bulbs, fan and top metal liner to access the pan and heater assembly. Thanks and Good Luck
