Frigidaire FRT21LRG leaking inside fridge
« on: September 21, 2013, 11:44:21 AM »
My fridge is leaking water from the top of the fridge compartment. The top looks like tin and is leaking from a hole where a clip goes to hold a wire. I've looked at the tray that sits on top of the compressor and it is dry.  Im hoping maybe the drain is clogged, but I can't figure out how to remove it.  I loosened the coils on the back and tugged on the drain coming out the back (appears to be in then area between the fridge and the freezer), but didn't want to pull to hard.

Anybody know how to remove the drain?  Maybe some suggestions as to what might be causing the leak?

Thanks,

Chris

Right behind the air flow box( center on ceiling ) there is a plastic "cup" with 2 plastic push rivets. Gently with a flat blade screwdriver pry the rivets and cup off the wall, clean out and take turkey baster and clean the hole in the back wall.

Checked this out yesterday afternoon.  The drain hole behind the airbox had what I will call a plastic plug in it.  I first thought it was just frozen up and started kind of chipping at it with a pick.  That didn't seem to be work all that good so I got a little more agressive with it.  Ended up pulling out a round piece of plastic about 1/8" or so thick.  It appeared to be frozen so I turned the fridge off for a little while.  Haven't seen any dripping inside where it was dripping from since.  I will keep an I on it.  Hopefully this fixed it.

Thanks oldstoveguy
