LG BOTTOM FREEZER DRAIN KEEPS FREEZING UP
« on: March 07, 2014, 07:03:25 AM »

I have a customer with a LG  refrigerator, freezer drain freezes up every couple of months. I have changed drain tube, tried a conductor kit. Still having a problem. I had another one do the same thing just cleared it out for now anticipating a return trip sooner or later. Any idea's thanks DS

Go in the back and remove the drain tube and clear out the debris at the check valve.  Usually that's what blocks the water from draining properly.

It is a LRFD25850ST. So far I have changed the drain tube in the back, tried a pvc cap at end of drain tube and a conducter heater through the drain. Maybe an electric drain heater?

May I ask what you mean by a cap on the drain tube?
