Thread: Frozen drain valve.

  1. #1

    Frozen drain valve.

    Model Number: KSRA25ILSS03
    Brand: KitchenAid
    Age: 6-10 years

    Drain keeps freezing closed causing water to spill out of fridge. I cleaned out the check valve(?) for now but would like to replace it - does it just pop out from inside the freezer compartment? I tried to pop it out to inspect and clean it but it wouldn't budge and I didn't want to tear it apart before I had a replacement. Thanks for any help you can provide.

    When I pulled back the aluminum drain pan I could only see the top of the rubber boot/valve, but yes that definitely looks like it. Again, I tried to pull this piece up and out but there was no give to it and it is not visible from under the freezer compartment for access. How can I remove it for inspection, cleaning and/or replacement? Thanks.

    I have never removed this piece. Usually the best thing to do is to leave this piece in place and remove the hose from the back side of the refrigerator.

    I think as an experienced plumber, Royal Flush will be your best option.
