    Hi
    Don't know if any of you know much about Fridges but I do know I know diddly squat! :rolleyes:

    I've noticed that there is a collection of water in the bottom of our fridges where the salad draws sit, I've emptied it out and cleaned it all but it is all now back. I've turned the thermostat down, but to no avail. I don't really want to fork out for a new fridge as this is only 5 years old.

    Anybody have any suggestions please??

    TIA xx

    Normally because it needs defrosting. Unless you have frost free fridge then you have a blockage at back where water drains out usually a small hole there

    If it is a blockage then you can use a bicycle pump to blow it out, ideally you cut off the metal bit at end of the bike pump thing and put the rubber bit in hole and then pump it a few times. My brother is in the appliance business and he gave me this tip years ago and I have used it many times. It is usually a bit of food that has got in hole and swelled. Good luck
