Refrigerator

Does anyone know if the refrigerator has any type of drain for the thawing of the freezer/refrigerator, the reason I ask is my freezer thawed out, reason unknown, and everything Melted and all the water went down and into my furnace and some into my storage compartment, thatís how I noticed I had a problem. But the big problem was that the water had no place to go but down and the heater is directly under the refrigerator. If you never had this problem yet you might want to look at placing some kind of water Barrier over your heater to prevent this from happening to your furnace.

Absorption or residential? Assuming the former then there is a tray under the fins in the fridge part. There is a tube that should connect to it that leads outside and usually dumps into another tray to evaporate. But Iíve seen some that just dump out the access panel. But the bottom of your fridge should be water tight too so unless you have a heck of a lot of frost it should just puddle there.

it's doubtful that any fridge is designed for the instance where " my freezer thawed out, reason unknown, and everything Melted and all the water went down and into my furnace and some into my storage compartment, that’s how I noticed I had a problem ..." problem. They don't make a tray 'big enough' for every worst-case situation...where would they put it?
We've had our residential fridge in our coach for over 5 years, even during storage where it's not 'on', with no issues with anything 'thawing' from the freezer, especially since we took it out before storing it.
If your fridge is not 'working', that's a whole different story...

A diaper in the freezer and one in the fridge for accidently frozen sodas is a plan.
They don't take up much room, frozen liquids don't absorb. Things stack just fine on top of an unfolded diaper.



I am amazed but not amused
