Major Appliances/frozen drain in refrig


Roper Model RT21LMXKQ05 SN ES3818302 - The entire freezer area had a sheet of ice on the bottom and water dripping down into the refrigerator area. We used the hair dryer and hot water to open the drain. Very little debris flushed out. A month later - the same thing happened.  The fan is running in the freezer area, the ice maker is working, food in refrig is cold, in the freezer its frozen.  Why does it freeze the water instead of evaporating it?

That is a common problem found on many refrigerators.  Defrost everything and then when unblocking the drain line, you may have to blown air through it and also....when finished, flush the tube with very hot water to remove the old slim inside the lower end of the tube....  Good Luck, Eric
