Question about Kenmore 72202 / 72204 / 72209 Top Freezer Refrigerator
Water keeps on pooling under the fruit and vegetable drawers and I can not figure out where it is coming from. Also, there is a lot of water drop stalagtite or stalagmite looking things forming on the top of the freezer compartment. Unit seems to be functioning just fine.
Water collecting on the top of a freezer, I have to wipe it every week, it is on the outside of the freezer, on top of the formica surface. Please Help.

Harrtock, what's happening here is that your defrost drain in the freezer section is clogged or frozen over. When the unit goes into defrost, some of the water is running down the air duct to the refrigerator and gathering under the drawers. You need to clear out the freezer, remove the rear panel and clear out the defrost drain. You can do this by pouring hot water over the drain hole with some sort of baster. To prevent this from happening again take a piece of copper wire and loop it over the calrod heater on the evaporator and push the other end into the drain hole. Now when the heater comes on in defrost the heat will keep the drain hole from freezing over...Catriver..post back.
