Question and Answers

Q:

What will cause water to collect in the bottom of a Gibson model #RT19F7WS3B refrigerator?

A:

Water leaks into the refrigerator section when the drain system freezes closed or builds up with algae. Most older units have an external drain tube running down the back of the unit. This model does not show one but it would be good to check it anyway. Just pull it out so you can see the back and look for a large approx. 3/8" plastic tube. It will normally be connected about halfway up the cabinet. If it's there, usually blowing it out will correct the problem. If there is no tube there, then it will be internal, which will be more difficult to clear. To clear the drain, remove everything in the freezer so the back panel can be removed. First disconnect power to the unit. With the panel removed, you will see the evaporator coil and directly under the coil is the drain trough (pan). The trough will probably be full of ice that will need to be removed. With the ice out of the trough, you will be able to see the drain hole which will be plugged with ice. Use hot water to clear the drain hole. Keep working the hot water into the hole and wiping the excess water. This can take quite awhile depending on how deep the ice is. This will need to be done until you get a good water flow down to the bottom drain pan. With the drain system clear, water should stop leaking in the refrigerator. If you need more assistance, please resubmit your question, with additional details. If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Safety Notice: Be sure to disconnect the appliance before performing any troubleshooting procedures. If you are not comfortable with doing any voltage checks or repairs that might be recommended, please contact a local service provider for repairs. Be aware that there could be sharp edges inside the appliance that could cause cuts or other injuries to yourself or others.
