    Hi,

    read on the boards here and I see that the water should drain away via the channels under the door. Tested this and it wasn't happening so put a clothes hangar down to try to clear blockages but with same result.


    Any help would be appreciated.

    ..looks like a brown water mark at the back of the cill, easiest way if the coat hanger did not clear is to run a 5mm drill bit "carefully" through the existing drainage holes making sure they exit the bottom frame...but NOT into the projection cill below it. Then get a cup of water and test again.
