Thread: Whirlpool freezer forming ice under drawer

    Whirlpool freezer forming ice under drawer

    Model Number: GI6SARXXF01
    Brand: Whirlpool
    Age: 1-5 years

    Lately ice has been forming in a thin sheet under the freezer drawer of my Whirlpool refrigerator. Water then runs out under the drawer and inter the floor. Any ideas on how to keep water from backing up in the freezer department? Is there a drain that is possibly clogging?

    Yes, you will need to check the defrost drain in the back of the freezer section. Unplug the refrigerator, remove everything from the freezer, remove the back panel in the freezer section. With that panel removed you will see the evaporator coil, at the bottom of that coil is a drain. I would pour hot water down that drain until it thaws out, and make sure water is flowing down it okay.

    The Water supply line may be leaking on the top of the refrigerator left side under cover, caused by low temp. setting.
