I’ve got an old Whirlpool refrigerator, which I aquired when I bought my house. It’s sort of built in. There’s a cabinet above it, which is supported by wood walls on either side of the fridge. There’s about an inch clearance between the top of the fridge and the cabinet. There’s essentially no clearance between the sides of the fridge and the walls. (Heat is exchanged through a vent on the bottom front.)
Here’s the problem. For about a week, there’s been excessive condensation/dripping inside the refrigerator compartment. I’m pretty sure that the problem is a blocked drain line. (It’s a frost-free unit, which means that the freezer has a periodic hot cycle that melts the frost on the freezer walls. The melted water collects in a channel, which is drained via a drain line to a drip evaporation pan above the motor.)
If I could access the back of the unit, I’m pretty sure I could fix the problem. But if I try to use a handtruck/dolly, there’s not enough clearance to tilt the fridge and pull it out. And If I try to pull it straight out (I haven’t tried yet), I risk gouging the hardwood floor.
Anybody have any bright ideas?
