Fridge drain tube has plug?

My propane fridge isnít draining. Seems there may be ice in the drain tray. Went outside and checked. Found a small white tube/hose with a plastic plug in it. Why? Is it the drain? Why is it plugged. Tube is. Only about 1/8 inch diameter.

Pull the plug and see if it drains.

i think you are referring to the small screw in plug that is put in to prevent bugs from entering the drain line

Fridge drain is normally a 1/2" ribbed line. They have an end cap, but it has small holes in it to allow it to drain.

Yes... this ^^^^^. Iím sure that plug has holes in it. The fridge doesnít drain constantly. Mine only drains when I turn it off and it defrosts.

Not on Nor-colds . they have just what op describes. small tube with small white plastic insert . though it has a hole in to allow draining . Dometics have the type you describe

If they aer plugged open them up with a small drill so it will drain and keep the bugs from entering or building a nest that will plug it.
