I own a Blomberg Refrigerator with Ice maker model number K70520NLU. Water is leaking onto the floor from the freezer. The coils keep freezing every two weeks. I need to empty the contents, take off the back cover and unfreeze the ice buildup along the coils with a hair dryer. Doing this does not solve my problem because the ice buildup and water leaks start again within 7-10 after unfreezing the ice buildup. Upon inspecting the back portion of the freezer, I noticed that there is a lot of black buildup in the water hose. I suspect this is what is causing the issues, but I am not sure. How can this part be cleaned or should it be replaced? What is the purpose of this part and can this be the reason I am having the problem? The ice maker works and produces ice. Any info is greatly appreciated. I've owned this fridge for the past 7 years.
There should be a drip pan over the compressor that is used to evaporate access water. Check if it is clogged.
The freezer has a built-in timer that defrosts the coils about every 7 hours. That function might not be working. It is a electric function.
How to clean the part. Remove it and use bottle brush.
Golden rule: If they have assembled it, you can disassemble unless it is glued.
