Help my Whirlpool Fridge has a Glacier

Recommended Posts

I'm hoping somebody can help here I have a side by side fridge and in the bottom of the freezer side I get a sheet of ice that builds up until it gets to the door seal then melts and drips on the floor. My manual states it has a auto defrost cycle and you may hear water run to the drain pan but it makes no mention of how or where to clean (maybe something clogged?) . Oh yea fridge is 2 years old. any help to get going in the right direction would be great.

You'll need to find your freezer coils (may be behind a panel). It sounds like your condensate drain is frozen up (same thing happened on my frigidaire two weeks ago).

You'll need to figure out why the drain stopped draining - probably gunk in the tube that backed water up long enough to freeze it.

Once I found where the drain was I dumped some almost boiling water down it, which flushed a bunch of gunk out of it.

Make sure the door seal is good at the point where it is freezing. That is most likely the source of the problem.

Most times just a small air leak will grow into a big ice up.

    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!     
    • Males were on the beds last night on a lake here in the metro. Not my deal, so I let 'em be. Which means I didn't catch much at all compared to last week.   Oh well, be a couple weeks before the summer patterns start happening. Already a hint of cottonwood floating on the water though. *booooo*
    • I would agree with Purple.   Just add an inexpensive unit of your choice for the maps.   You could even use a cheap tablet with the navionics app on it for the mapping, if money was an issue.     You can buy a 7 inch generic (RCA) tablet for around 50 bucks.    A few bucks more gets a holder.
