I got called this week to a Whirlpool Refrigeration, model being: WRT541SZDW00 - circa 2017. Customers complaint, water on top shelf of refrigeration section. I first pulled the evaporator cover and observed the Evaporator & Drain Trough. Evaporator clear, and no icing in the trough. No evidence of a plugged drain and defrost water over spilling the trough. No ice under trough. Went to ceiling area of Refrigerator section. Attempting to find piping route of condensate water to the pan underneath. Found none, thus assuming the piping route is buried in the wall. Pulled the back cover where the condensing unit is at. On the LH side (viewed from back) I found the piping ( or tubing ) from the evaporator. Found a rubber like end (trap ??) and removed same. Found it plugged with debris ( snot like ). Cleaned and removed same. Blew backwards on the pipe and found no resistance. I "assumed" the issue was the plugged trap. Got a call this afternoon, claiming water is still appearing on top shelve of Refrig Section. I am now scratching my head. What else can or should check ??
