Intermittant leaks of water onto floor every 2 - 3 daysunder frezer
side of side by side Sudden onset about a week ago. Small puddle. Unit
is a about 3 1/2 years old. Service folks say they can't come out to
look at unit untiil 3 November. *SWMBO*
not amused at delay.
Unit is keeing frozen stuff well frozen, and refrigerator side wrking
well in terms of keeping chilled stuff chilled. Plenty of ice from
dispenser, and plenty of cold water from dispenser
Pulled unit out from wall and unplugged. Took out shelves. Took
off lower and back inside panels . Traced incoming water line from back
of unit up to and through entire routing to front water dipenser. No
leak I can find. Traced line to icemaker, again no leak I can find.
If it were a leat in the water line to the icemaker or the chilled water
outlet in the door, I'd expect to see ice forming insde the freezer
unit. There is non/
There is a group of refrigerant coils in the rear under the bottom of
the freezer. The coils have an ice build up on them A good amount of
ice. Ice encases several wires near coils. I'm thinking that probably
isn't the way its designed to operate and that this can't be good. The
owner's manual, which I have, is useless.
I did find a sort of drain under the coil area and it, too, has water
and ice on it. I poured some war tah to melt he ice and gntly cleaned
he darin arae with some tips. Doesn't seem clogged. There is a
perforated metal plate under the drain area, but cant reach iyt with
anything to try to clear ay clogs.
Anybody here got any better ideas of what might be causing he
intermittant puddling and the ice build p on the coils and wires.
I vaguely recall a web site for "Harry Homeowner" appliance repairs but
haven't saved the URL. I am separately doing a Google search fr that
site, but wuld appreciate any pointers to the site.
