Help my Whirlpool Fridge has a Glacier

3 posts in this topic

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.

Thanks.

Tom

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.
