Question about Kenmore 20.6 cu. ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Water under veg bins

Water has built up for the last month or two, almost everyday we need to sop up water from here every day.
This fridge is about 15 years old. A Kenmore 21 is all the info I can get.
The seal around door is good, fridge and freezer are dry. Can't figure out where water is coming from, obviously it's from condensation but why?

Mw Daewoo fridge freezer FRS-20321BE is leaking water copiously from the refrigerator I cannot see any source for this but puddles form and flow internally under the veg box. Help!


All depends on how much water is collecting. A lot of water indicated a leak from the ice maker. A small amount and it's probably a clogged condensate drain. Here's a YouTube video on a different brand showing a clogged drain, your may be similar (or not), but it might give you an idea as to where to look. Refrigerator dripping water inside FIX

Not draining properly,water under veg. bins


Pull the veg. bin draws out and you'll see a hole that could be clogged with food or frozen water. First, clear away food if there is any. Then, pour boiling water into the drain and watch the bottom of the unit where it should be draining into a pan which will evaporate from the heat of the compressor.

The drain at the center-base of the freezer freezes shut with ice. Water accumulates on the frig shelves and under the veg bins. Why and what to do? Frig is a Whirlpool 21 cu-ft ET1CHMXKB03 built in 2004.


There is supposed to be a defrost element that goes through the first part of the drain, it may have been pulled out or it may be malfunctioning. After the evaporator defrost cycle the water should drain through the drain tube, since it's frozen up the water just accumulates in the fridge. If you take off the inside panel that covers the evaporator coils (the coils that freeze up) you should be able to see the evaporator defrost element and the drain defrost element. Inspect the drain defrost element to see if it's in the drain tube like it should be or if it needs to be replaced.

Water collects under the veg tray on bottom of fridge


Good day,
That's a classic example of the drain system either plugged up or iced up.
Remove the rear panel in the freezer, and inspect the drain hole where the condensed water drains out of the machine. Must be blown out or de-iced. Service techs use compressed air tank with hose to blow out the dirt. You'll need to improvise. However...
There are a few models that let the condensed water run down the back wall of the fridge, under the crisper drawers and then out a drain plug.
Check for this first.

Water inside fridge


the water is coming from the top portion of the refrigerator section. the insulation between the freezer and the refrigerator is getting wet that is why the coldness of the freezer is transferring to the refrigerator trough the insulation foam. you can see droplets of water forming underneath the refrigerator section. sometimes you can see ice forming underneath also.
