    The bottle-type thing that you're referring to is probably the condensor.

    The last time I had a problem like this it was because although the hole was clear, the back surface of the fridge had become scuffed, so water wasn't draining down to the channel & instead was freezing on the back, casuing more water to get stopped & freeze etc.

    I'd suggest turning your fridge thermostat down. What setting is it on? What type of fridge is it? Upright/Under counter etc.

    I normally leave mine on number 3 setting, when the fridge gets full, turn it up a bit, when its get empty, turn it down a bit :?

    Im no expert, but thought this advice may be useful! HTH :thumbsup:

    hi birdy its a upright large tall fridge servis model m7090 ,setting is at 3 but the bottle at the back is roasting hot think its on the way out but dont know if its the thermostat or condenser !!!

    Dont really know, but when my fridge did this. Just out of warrenty. It needed regassing. Hope that helps.
    Got a local chap to do it. Said he only used to do car aircons.

    This has happened to me a few times on my built in small fridge...on inspection at the front underneath of the fridge I found a cylinder that has a fan...looks something like a rotary lawnmower blade (the type on petrol mowers and old fashioned manual ones)..anyway with electric off I removed the fan put the electric back on to see if it was spinning...it wasn't so after a good clean (it was saturated with dust) and an attack with WD 40 it started spinning...reassembled and all is fine..no ice build up ont back of inside of fridge..may work for you.

    yeah my fridge was doing the same lots of water was collecting at the bottom of the fridge,the little hole at the back was blocked and it was freezing up on the back mine was simple i unblocked it and just turned down the thermostat thing , to let me check no 3 , problem solved hope this helps
