Leaving it unplugged overhight would probably melt the ice plug. Located where it is, it would probably be the last thing to melt. Hopefully you have a second fridge or a helpful neighbor if you go that route.
I'm totally new to this stuff but bought a used SAMSUNG RB194ACWP, few days later i discovered that the water leaks inside. I opened the inside cover, and here what i can see:

Note that, in the first days, i was putting the temperature at a very low level, but not just adjusted it to normal.
Can anyone advice me what should i do to fix the issue myself?
Thank you very much in advance.
The water drains into a pan at the bottom of the refridgerator where it evaporates. Since you ran your fridge extra cold it may be the only reason the drain froze up. If you read through all this thread though you will find many people still have freezing issues even with the frudge temps set correctly. Post #31 in this thread shows the fix that is working for some of us. It invloves buying a $10 aluminum probe for Whirlpool fridges and hanging it down into the drain from the defrost heating element. That way when the fridge goes into deforost cycle it heats up the probe that is hanging where the drain ices shut to melt any ice in the drain.Thanks Urlik for the reply, i found the drain full of ice, put some hot water and it melted. now what should i do? where that water will go?
Great suggestion bassman! I wish I saw your post a few weeks ago when I had the back panel off. Unfortunately, the back of one of my crisper drawers is already a bit rust-stainedIt looks like Samsung used a cheap zinc plated screw when they should have used stainless. I replaced all four screws in mine with stainless number 8 screws which should eliminate any future rust. Luckily the rust in my fridge was minimal did not get on the plastic panels.
Read through this thread, in particular look at the posts about the whirlpool probe some of us have had fix this issue. It's inexpensive and some folks even added photos on how to hang it.My drain in the back keeps freezing up.Puddles of water under the vegetable drawers.Also,when this happens it causes frost all over my bottom bottom freezer.I have to pull everything out of refrigerator about every 2 weeks to thaw out drain.Any solutions why it keeps freezing up? I also turned my temp up to 40 degrees.
