We have a FRIGIDAIRE GLRS2647AW1 side by side fridge/freezer. Well, the drain plug in the freezer is completely clogged with something. I have tried pouring boiling hot water in it to unclog but no dice. The problem is you can't really get to the drain plug because it is blocked by the drip tray which cannot be removed. :X

Any advice to my dillemma?

THANKS!!!!

Use some flexable tubing or something to push thru the drain in case something else has it blocked.

I tried using a coat hanger but it would not budge. Do you think something is PHYSICALLY stuck in there? Should I be able to get a coat hanger to go thru it or does the drain have some sort of screen on it?

 

Thanks!

Do not use a coat hangar unless you really really really know what you're doing. Stick with the flex tubing like Pegi said. Add to your arsenal warm salt water poured into the drain to melt the ice plug. Refresh as needed. Yeah, we yankees figgered that one out.
