Kenmore freezer/refridgerater 106#52699100

I have a kenmore freezer that is draining the water onto the floor of the freezer and then freezing it. Could it be the thermostat or the automatic defrost, or something else.
Thank You

SOURCE: water leaking onto floor when defrosting automatically

There are many reasons for this happening for example water leaking from a water supply line for the dispenser or ice maker, a crack in the defrost pan, water leaking inside and draining through the refrigerator cabinet, but most are cased by a defrost drain line blockage. Below is a link that may be helpful so try to take it all in and use the parts that most refer to your specific problem, Thanks Sea Breeze HOW TO FIX A LEAKING REFRIGERATOR OR FREEZER

Hello,


The water is from the melted frost of the defrost cycle. The drain at the bottom of the back wall of the freezer is blocked so instead of the water draining into the pan where it will evaperate,it's pooling on the freezer floor and freezing, in many case when the floor indent is full the water will leak onto the floor.By pulling the refrigerator out from the wall,there will be a tube behind the service panel on the right side when looking at it from the rear,that tube can be removed and cleared,then clear the nozzle it connects to inside the freezer.

I hope this helps you to stop the leak,
Gene

I have a Kenmore Coldspot Model #69207990 and have the same problem. Water from the freezer drains into the refridgerator onto the shelves and sheets of ice form. A repairman pointed out that the tube leading down from the freezer onto the drain pan was frozen. By pouring hot water down the tube, he reopened this drain line. Problem solved for six months and the drain line froze again. My question is how to stop this drain line from freezing up again.

Kenmore Elite 795.75542401 Water freezes on the bottom & then spills out to the floor. We can't find a drain hole anywhere!!


Hi,

There is the drain in the freezer under the evaporator. You have to remove the rear panel in the freezer and the freezer floor to access it. Defrost it using a hair dryer and put hot water through the drain to make sure it's clean. Make sure the bottom end of the drain hose (behind the rear cover) is clean as well. Vacuum everything in the compressor compartment and keep it clean.

Water is accumulating in the bottom freezer and freezing...I continually have to chisel it out. We have tried defrosting it but have the same problem a few days later.


Hi.This will normally be caused by a clogged drainage hose or plug. There is a drain leading out of the freezer and another from the refrigerator. In top freezer models, the freezer may drain the water onto the back wall. It actually runs down the wall to the refrigerator floor drain. In other cases, there may be a drain tube leading out the freezer. The refrigerator drain is either located on the floor of the refrigerator, beneath the vegetable crisper, or in the wall behind a drain funnel. In side-by-side models, the freezer and refrigerator will probably each have an outlet to the drain pan under the appliance.

Clear the drain by forcing a solution of water and bleach or water and baking soda into it with a basting syringe. If the solution will not flow through, slide a length of ¼ inch flexible tubing into the drain tube to push the clog through to the drain pan. Remove the tubing after clearing the clog.
