Crack in Freezer Lining

I have a crack in the freezer wall of a Kenmore side by side. Is there a product (glue or caulk or something like that) that can be used to repair the crack and that will withstand the temperature?

    The model number is Kenmore 106.8580380. Do you know where I can get the patch kits? We are using the unit at a cabin, so if the fix isn't pretty, it's okay. It is a used unit for me, so I don't have any of the original owner's manuals, etc. (By the way, I wasn't the one who gave you a poor rating)

    Thanks for the information. I'll order one.

    I checked online at Sears.com for part no. 282397 and also called the 800 number. They don't have that part number and the 800 operator could not find any type of epoxy repair kit listed. Any other ideas?

Bpat, Im guessing that your model number begins with 106, If so it's built by Whirlpool. Look at your owners manual and see if it mentions a warranty on the liner. Some models carried a 10 year warranty against cracking. If not, there are some kits available out there to patch cracks but it's not the greatest looking deal. Catriver...post back

    bpat, here's the number I have for the epoxy kit..part number 282397, go to Sears.com, appliances and enter the part number. Or call the 800 number and get parts. Give them the part number and have them ship it too you...Catriver.

    Would that spray that seals cracks work? Perhaps low temp epoxy? Mine is also cracked and yes it is a Kenmore model.

Ice in bottom of side by side Kenmore freezer side


Make sure the doors are closed tight - freezer door may open a crack when frig side closes.

If door is tight, make sure the door gasket makes a tight seal. Often they need to be cleaned (409 is my favorite) or they get twisted. They also sometimes come away from the door in spots. Pay attention to the bottom seal which you usually don't notice in daily use.

Auto defrost freezer always smells musty/moldy when door is open


Unless the drain is partially plugged off you should not have any moisture in the freezer creating the musty moldy smell. I would clean out the freezer and make sure the drain is clear. If it keeps coming back you may have a crack ing the lining inside the freezer and moisture sealing in. Not a lot you can do with that unfortunately, you can try to seal it up but there are only a couple products i know about that will work in that temp and there not cheap Good luck

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

Hi,

With the door left open moisture would get into the unit behind the walls and into the duct work. The only way to fix this right is to unload it and let it unthaw for a day or so open. Once it is all defrosted and restarted it should be fine again.

Bottom of freezer has a crack in the plastic


Minor cracking will not cause any problems.  The manufacturer says this is only cosmetic damage.  I wouldn't worry about it.

Frig liner is cracking


I have the same problem on my 3 year old Kenmore Refrigerator. I cleaned out the refrigerator and noticed the cracks. I don't know how long they've been there. I called the service guy out and he said it's a known problem. He said the plastic wasn't poured right into the mold. He told the only solution is a silicon type caulking or a patch. The patch involved cutting pieces of liner from a sheet and basically glueing them over the cracks. BOTH SOLUTIONS are unacceptable. I am beginning the process of complaining (lot of good it will do). If this is a known defect, SEARS should stand by their product and make it good.
