Question about Refrigerators
On my roper, in the fridge there is water leaking in from the ceiling (base of the top freezer). Seems to happen only at night. I currently have bowls on the top shelf to catch the water. I do not have an ice maker. How do I find the freezer plug to see if that is clogged?
My Kenmore leaks water from the ceiling inside the fridge. Any idea what causes this?
This is usually caused by a plugged freezer drain. The back wall (or floor) of the freezer may come out to access the drain. Clear out anything visible and run a stiff wire thru it. Test with a cup of water. Hope this helps!

Look aty the back of the freezer and at the bottom there will be ice. The Freezer drain is clogged. Usually Iced up becaust the defrost heater coil is weak or shutting off too soon. Clear out the freezer and heat up all around the bottom of the back plate. Take off the back and disconnect the wires for the ice maker if you have one. Disconnect and shut off the ice maker line. Actually shut it off first.
Using the hair drier heat up the drain and make sure it is clear for several inches down. Take a copper wire about 12 inches and make a small loop to go over the heater wire and then the rest goes straight down the drain. Now when the heater coi is on a small amount of heat will go down the wire and keep ice from the drain.
Now just reassemble the ice maker and back putting all wires whaer they go.
