Question about Frigidaire Refrigerators
I think drain is clogged can't get a tube to pass in the drain. Should a tube be able to pass in the hole for model #frs6r4eq4 and could it be that frozen

Good Afternoon Friend,
I understand that your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRS6R4EQ4 is collecting water in the bottom of the freezer, below the coils. I also see that you think the drain is clogged. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine why the water is collecting. Hope this is helpful.

SOURCE: clogged fridge drain tube
The drain is behind the back panel in the freezer at the bottom. Sounds like it is frozen over which is pretty common. Will need to remove panel and thaw out drain by running hot water down. You can use a putty knife to break up ice first. Make sure you get all ice around the drain above and below the thin aluminum tray at the bottom. After the drain is free don't be alarmed if you get some water on the floor because the drain pan may not hold all of the water you ran down the drain. Not anything you can do to prevent this on this model.

sounds like you have a clogged defrost drain tube. removing back panel of freezer will give you access to drain trough, melt away the ice with a hair dryer, youll find a drain hole under there somewhere,pouring boiling water down the drain will clear it pretty quickly( i use a steam machine purchased from the infomercials works awesome, after you clear it and all water drain down tube wrap a piece of solid copper wire around the heater( black heater right above the drain trough) and stick it in the whole maybe an inch or so. now every time the heater comes on to defrost it will prevent the hole from freezing over

Hi, thanks for the question. these new ,or older fridges have the drain tube, between the walls of the fridge , and what happens is the water in that drain tube freezes. so the water in the defrost cycle ,cant go down to the drain pan. to repair fridge must be turned off. for at least 24 hrs. insert a small plastic tube, from the drain tray up to the freezer, an blow up the tube to clear. thanks the appliance doc. please rate my answer thanks..

Yes, you are correct, that is a drain. Use a turkey baster with hot (not boiling) water to flush out the drain tube until water will flow out into the drain pan under the refrig. (where the air blown over it will cause it to evaporate)
