Question about Kenmore 63222 / 63224 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
I have a Kenmore, bottom freezer, TECH SHEET 10096833. I get so much ice buildup, I've had to remove the drawer or it freezes shut. Then it runs under the seal and I have a nice pool of water on my kitchen floor. It seems to happen only 1ce or 2ce a week, like it's on a timer. It has an ice maker, but it's never been hooked up. My husband thought it may be too close to the wall, so he pulled it out. Still have problem. Any help would be very appreciated -- I'm getting so tired of this!
The freezer will defrost itself periodically depending on the run times of the compressor. This is determined by the defrost timer and will shut the unit off and turn on a heater to thaw the frost buildup. The resulting water is then channeled to the defrost pan which rests on top of the condensor coil under the freezer section or on top of the compressor, (depending on manufacturer design). The tubing to the defrost pan could be plugged or kinked off. You may also need a modification kit installed to keep the defrost drain trough from freezing over. I would suggest you consult a local technician for advice in this area. Also, make sure all doors are sealing properly as an air leak will cause excessive frost build up and will have a tendency to freeze before it can all drain out, then any successive defrost cycles will overflow the trough and run out the front.
