Kitchenaid kfis25xvbl refridgerator water leak defrostwater puddle on floor
Posted 27 December 2011 - 10:35 AM
Problem is, they seem to have hidden the drain pan from me as I don't see one under the unit. So, in the interest of torpedoing this issue with one shot vs. spraying shrapnel all over the kitchen, does anyone have a diagram or pic of the defrost system and drain/pan placement I can use for targeting purposes?
Mucho domo gozaimasu for any assistance!

Remove the evaporator panel to access the defrost drain outlet.
Thaw it with a hair dryer.
Post your model number in the parts search box above your post to view exploded diagrams of your refrigerator.

To clear this drain, you have to remove the drawer, the icemaker(if equiped) and the rear wall of the freezer.
To remove door, you may have to drill out 2 small rivets, on the rails, left and right ,really close to where the rails meet the liner of the drawer.
After you drill em out, lift up on the handle and remove the drawer front/rail mount asm.
Dismount i/m and remove rear wall. Clear frozen drain and pan with steamer, hair dryer or similar tool...
Be sure and wear some gloves digging around that evap coil...sharp!

the model is in the body of the post....
It is also in the Thread Topic.
He asked for a diagram.
I told him how to find it by posting his model number in the search box above his post.
Did I do something wrong.
