Just got round to looking at the fridge,as in spite of your quick and clear answer I need more info.
All I see when I remove the inner panel by removing a single centre screw, is the fan and then the vent slot a few cms below it.
Do I have to remove the second inside back panel that is shaped to come down either side of the fan and slot - is the drain hole behind that. The ends of screws show through that panel so I suppose I have to unscrew them from outside at the back. I'm a bit wary of dismantling too many parts.
Sorry if I'm being a bit obtuse.
Hope you can help,
I have taken the inside back panel of by removing one centre screw.
I am now faced with another panel. The screws I can see are one either side at the bottom of the panel but screwed in from the other side - I can only see the points of them.
Then there is a screw either side of the fan ( 2oclock and 8oclock) these are recessed quite deep. If I wiggle the panel the fan moves as well - and there is some form of thermocouple clipped to the panel on the right.
I'm unsure what to do.
That panel is off - behind is cooling tubes - have melted of ice - there is only a square vent on the right partly behind the tubes that appears to go upwards. Can't see any outlet in the bottom of tubes recess where the melted ice water is - help!
Just a piece of thin metal with metal saddles holding the bottom tubes to it.
This rests on the formed plastic back of the freezer compartment.Can't lift that without bending the tubes.
I think I'm close to giving up - tried poking wire up drain tube from outside at back over the drain tray which is completely dry however there is water on the floor, so it gets out somewhere.
No,only ice in the bottom of the freezer
Hi Michael,I seem to have finally done it.Having taken out both inside freezer panels I defrosted with hair dryer,dried water and levered up the tubes on their base plate as much as I dare as they were bending somewhat - still couldn't see outlet. Took out drip tray and took off bottom panel on back outside of f/f and had to drill and scrape ice from inside drip tube which was frozen really hard. Also aimed hot air up it through a plastic funnel.Using a mirror I could see up the tube and could see when it was clear. It's been ice free for a couple of weeks now.Thanks for your help,regardsKeith
