It is quite possible that my defrost drain pan melting was just normal age/wear & tear but I wanted to double check that there is not possibly a larger issue with my compressor running too hot.
This is my defrost drain pan here and I have the part and am just going to replace it. The old defrost drain pan clearly had two large holes where the area melted/eroded away and I am sure compressor heat was at least partly to blame. I would show a pic but I already threw the old defrost drain pan out before thinking perhaps there is a larger issue with the compressor running too hot.
I just wanted to double check, if anyone on here, thought the compressor was running abnormally hot or if it is normal to see a 4/5 year old defrost drain pan, that sits/hugs the top of a compressor, develop a reasonably large hole from heat over time.
