Kenmore Refrig Model 596.50699000, not getting cold as should. Frost forming on top row of coils only?????


Clean the condenser. Probably below refrig. Reset all settings to mid point and check to see if you have a restricted drain tube.

Kenmore elite model 52603100 freezer defrost water freezes in drain tube/plan then over flows to bottom of unit. freezes then water eventally runs on kitchen floor


You need to clean out the drain tube it's clogged that's why the water is freezing.Try using hot water and maybe something like pipe cleaners to get what's in there out.Hope this helps. On some models it may be easier to pull out the refrig from the wall and get to the drain from the back.

Need to know if my refigerator maytag mtf2193ar has any kind of system to drain defrost water because all that water is just acumulating at the bottom of the fridge and is just leaking out tru the door...


Yes the auto defrost drain water should run into a drain tube and out into a pan under the refrig where it just evaporates. You have a clogged drain and will need to look for it. Move your refrig out from the wall and you should be able to see the drain hose and get it cleaned out.Hope you find this helpful.

Leaking water maytag plus rsw2400eam ...ice maker not hooked up. seems to be coming from freezer side can you help


When your refrig goes into auto defrost the water normally goes down a drain tube and into a drip pan under the refrig, then it evaporates. But now your drain in plugged somewhere and you will need to find it and clean it out. Hope this gets you going in the right direction.

Kenmore refrig/freezer. freezer side is cold,


Check your condenser coil (should be below the refrig.). If dirty, you can clean it with a condenser brush from Home Depot or Lowe's. Turn the appliance off while cleaning. Be careful not to damage the refrigerant tubing (copper). If this doesn't solve the problem, then there may be an issue with the defrost thermostat, defrost heater(s) or the main temperature control assembly.

Contact an appliance service company.

Leaking water from kenmore freezer to refrig below


its possible that the drain pan behind the back freezer wall is clogged or coverd with ice, sounds like when unit goes into defrost melt water leaks under sides of drain pan and into fridge. unplug and remove back freezer wall if drain is covered with ice defrost the ice, can be prevented by loosely coiling a piece of solid copper wire around element and into drain slightly radiant heat during defrost should keep drain fromicing over. if drain is just clogged wth debris clean drain and you should be good to go, hope this helps you.

I have a Kenmore Elite top freezer refrigator. Water is driping or somehow forming on the top shelves [under the top freezer] and a thin layer of ice will appear and the water contuniues to form. then over...


common issue.....sounds like a drain clog in the freezer compartment above. remove the freezer rear panel and totally defrost the evaporator area, directly under the evap you see( under all taht ice) a small drain hole that has become frozen over, try defrosting with either a hair dryer( not a heat gun too much heat youl melt everything) or by pouring hot water donw the drain until you get a free flow of water down the tube. after its clear reassemble and you should be fine
