How to Clean a Drip Pan for a Frigidaire Refrigerator


The drip pan catches liquid and debris that are flushed from a refrigerator during a defrost cycle. Over time, debris can accumulate in the pan. Frigidaire recommends a twice-yearly cleaning of the refrigerator to maintain it. The drip pan is accessed from the back of a Frigidaire refrigerator.

Things You'll Need

  • Dish soap
  • Scrub brush
  • Paper towels
  • Grasp the refrigerator on both sides and carefully slide it out to expose the back. Disconnect the power cord from the outlet.

  • Locate the drip pan on the back of the refrigerator, near the compressor. Grasp both sides of the pan, and pull outward to remove it.

  • Pour any accumulated liquid in the pan down a sink drain. Spray the surface with water, and squirt a small amount of dish soap onto the surface of the pan.

  • Scrub the pan in circular motions with a nonabrasive brush to remove encrusted debris.

  • Rinse the pan clean, wipe it dry with paper towels, and reinstall it in the back of the refrigerator.

Tips & Warnings

  • Food will remain fresh in the refrigerator for the short time it is unplugged.
