Appliance tip of the week...

Not sure what is going on here but we have recently experienced a continuous build up of water in the refrigerator- on the top shelves, in the veggie/fruit drawers, and under the drawers. We have tried several simple things:

?(1) cleaned the bottom with a vacuum and removed and cleaned the drip pan (it was relatively dusty but not horrid)

?(2) cleared the fridge to allow better circulation (note that the refrigerator was not stuffed full to start with)

?(3) adjusted the settings to make the freezer and refrigerator colder

?(4) adjusted the settings to make the freezer and refrigerator warmer


NOTE: while I tried to allow the refrigerator to warm (#4) my wife readjusted it to cool (#3) thus not real sure of any problem solving here.

I have read about drain tubes being clogged yet I am not sure were to find one on this model which is about 6 years old.
*****
On most models, the defrost drain hole/line is located inside of the freezer behind that back access panel, just remove that back panel, remove your freezer floor panel FIRST(Has 2 screws in front), that simply pulls out, then you will see the drain hole under the evaporator coil. It may be iced up, you will have to clear all of the ice and run hot water down the drain hole.
