we have an bosch american fridge freezer KAN 58A55. We have a build up of ice under the bottom draw all the time when defrosting it runs onto the floor. Can you advise ?
Hi sorry to hear that.
That is a sign of a clogged drain line.
To fix this you need to remove the rear wall inside the freezer, then you will see the drip pan just under the defrost heater.
That pan will have some ice in there blocking the drain hole.
That causes the water to run inside the fridge:-)
If you will rate my service to you thus far as ok or better, before closing this page, I will be able stick with you until this fixed.
Please note it won't cost you anything more to rate, and it WILL ensure your question won't time out or end unexpectedly, then you can always contact me the very same way at no additional cost;-)
Thank you and have a wonderful day!
