idea thanks to John Holden CTSCAPER on Youtube:
I am proud to live in a home in Vancouver Canada which came with a Stainless Steel Whirlpool Gold refrigerator .
However I have some bad news about our Refrigerator.
The Bad News
Symptoms: Leaking water, temperature too high, water on food, spoiled vegetables, temperature is too high / food is too warm.
Why it is Happening
Freezer has a drain system for the auto defrost.
Reason for the symptoms: Auto defrost ice clogs the back of the freezer and the drain hole. Water leaks down into fridge and ice clogs the air vents
But there is Good News: It can be fixed.
Good news: Found a video on Youtube which explains the solution. Thanks to CTSCAPER for his video on Whirlpool Leaking Refrigerator Repair:
DISCLAIMER – IMPORTANT – PLEASE READ: You follow these steps at your own risk. There is no express or implied warranty in this video instructional steps. I shall not be responsible for any damage you cause to your fridge. If you are unsure, call your local fridge service company before attempting any repairs.
Process / Solution to leaking problem:
IMPORTANT – TO AVOID RISK OF ELECTRICAL SHOCK:
-Disconnect fridge from electrical power or turn off circuit breaker.
-Defrost ice with Hair Dryer
-Pour boiling water down drain hole to unclog it
-Install copper wire from heating element down the drain hole so it does not clog.
The bad news is that my expensive fridge, and thousands like it, have this defect / problem.
The good news is that I am now able to fix this problem. If your fridge has the same problem, let me know and I can fix it! I am also making a youtube video that explains the solution.
Thanks for watching!!
