Sorry for the bump.

Oz- I actually just spent two hilarious minutes of my life following your avatar through completion. It is absolutely ridiculous! Nice work!

I'd have to see pictures to know for sure what you're talking about. If it's a drain to let out water created by defrosting & you don't know it's entire history, it could very likely be clogged. Drains do that when you don't take care of them. That's if it's a drain at all.

On my first one, an ancient mini fridge, I disconnected the auto-defrost completely & about once a month or so there would be enough ice build up that I'd unplug it, crack the door, put a 1x2 piece of pine to elevate the back & throw down a towel. By morning, the ice would melt, run out the front & the towel would get almost all of it. Mildly inconvenient, but easy & it gave me a good excuse to wipe down the entire inside & sanitize it with a couple Clorox wipes. Just a thought.



I will post a pic or two as soon as I am able. I am fairly certain that it IS a drain that has become clogged but am a touch worried that I will break something trying to clear the drain.

If it is a drain it's gotta lead somewhere. I'd check for the outlet. If you determine it is a drain, be gentle (:nutters:). I'd try chemical cleaning before getting physical with it if you're real worried. When you figure out what exactly it is, it'll probably be pretty obvious on a good approach to clearing it out.

It's like a right of passage. I've thought about changing it a few times, but said fuck it. I only know of a few people who've mentioned they've made it to the end. Oldie but a goodie.

My best guess would be a drain as well. Did you find the outlet?

You should probably pick up one of these and turn it into a drain if it isn't already.
