They are usually held in with clips that snap in and out. This is especially true if you don't see any visible screws. Give it a good tug on one side and see if it pops out.

Your drain line is frozen and not allowing the defrost water to drain to the pan below. The drain hole is at the bottom of the evaporator coil in the freezer behind the metal rear panel. You may need to remove the panel to access it. You can use hot water to thaw it out and you should be in good shape.

Where is the freezer drain. I need to clean it. Thanks so much!


This is normally placed inside the freezer unit where the evaporator coils are placed. During defrosting the heater works and defrosts off the frost to the tray which drains the condensed water to the bottom by a tubing. SO you will need to remove the rear panel of the freezer to get access.

Water leaking from bottom of kenmore side by side fridge.


THE FREEZER MAY BE FROZEN UNDERNEATH THE COILS. UNPLUG THE KENMORE AND GET A VACUMM CLEANER OR A SHOP VAC AND CLEAN THE COILS ON THE BOTTOM OF THE FRIDGE. AFTER THAT REMOVE ALL ITEMS FROM THE FREEZER AND USE A SCREW DRIVER TO REMOVE THE PANELS FROM THE INSIDE OF THE FREEZER TO LOCATE THE COILS (INSIDE) THEY MAY NEED TO BE DEFROSTED DUE TO THE LENT BUILD-UP ON THE (UNDERSIDE) BOTTOM OF THE FRIDGE... HOPE THIS HELPS

Refrigerator/freezer


Seems that the condensate drain is clogged/frozen.. If there is a bottom storage bin on the freezer side, remove it. There should be a removeable panel on the back freezer wall. If you can safely remove it then do so. Look for an accumilation of ice behind the panel, under the evaporator coil. Do not attempt to do this unless you have a good mechanical aptitude. One other thing you may try is to clean the coil underneath the refrigerator. This can be quite difficult as the unit must be tilted in such a way as to gain access. The coil there is most likely covered in dirty hairballs. Once the coil is clean, let the unit defrost overnight. Once again, do not attempt any of these steps unless you are certain you can handle it. Perhaps it would be best to call a qualified service tech.

Inside fan motor - evaporator


Yes if you dont hear the evap fan wprking remove rear panel in freezer let me know what you see. Is coil iced over? Is fan running? Is the motor warm? Attempt to spin the blade gently to see if the motor is bound. You can oil these.
