    I have the same problem with my Kenmore model 106. Occasional water on the floor every few months.  I do not have any ice on the bottom of my freezer.  

    Recently it got worse. When I used the water dispensor on two occasions water poured out within 20 seconds onto the floor underneath the freezer.  I figured it was related to the water dispensor so I locked the dispensor and didn't use it.   Later that night water poured out on the floor again. So I guess it's not related to the water dispensor. 

    Any ideas?

Open your freezer door and remove the bottom tray and look to see if you have ice on the bottom if you do then its a frozen drain line get a hair dryer and and apply heat to the bac evaporator fins and all the ice..sometimes also some sxs refrigerator model leak a small amount of water right after you use it..Good luckk..

My Kenmore refrigerator is not cooling properly. Freezer portion works fine but not refrigerator. Came on suddenly.

I had the same problem. The frezzer worked but the fridge was not getting cold. What I have learned is that the frezzer make the fridge cold, so if the frezzer is working then something is blocking the cold air to get into the fridge. Most likely ice. The air come in at the bottom of the inside of the fridge next to the frezzer. Pull everything out of the frezzer, then unscrew the plannel that runs along the back and you see if there is ice. If so turn frezzer off and dry out the frezzer. I used hot water.

I have a kenmore model 106 79207990 Water and Ice developed behind the frezzer tray I took the tray out and it appears that the drain was filled with ice. What seems to be the problem with the drain....


The drain can get a build up in it over time or a foreign object can get in there and block the water flow.

To clear the drain:

- Turn off the refrigerator and unplug

- Locate the drain (it may be under all the ice) it is just below the cooling coils close the slots in the back panel. The drain hole is about the size of a dime.

- Use hot water and bath towels to unthaw the ice, DO NOT use a chisel and hammer as you can cause damage. A hair dryer may work too but be careful not to melt any of the plastic walls.

- Once the top ice is gone, use a turkey baster to flush down the drain hole until the water flows free.

- A small amount of spilled water on the floor is normal while doing this so have towels ready.

How do you get to the drain pan?

the pan is still at the bottom next to or below the compressor. access is from the back of the frig. but you might find it to be dry due to evaporation.[heat from the compressor] if you have water on the floor and have an ice maker, than that is your problem. a water line leak [possibly]!!!!!!

In the frezzer ice is forming under the floor and dripping down onto the floor of the refrigerator part under the veg drawers

first remove the floor and back wall of the freezer. remove the ice from the floor and drain pan careful not to damage the evaporator and drain pan. to the right of cener on the bottom of the drain pan is the drain hole. use a turkey baster and hot water to thaw the drain, you should hear water dripping into the drain pan when thawed. install a heat probe whirlpool part number 819043. or wrap a thick piece ( about the size of a pencil lead) of copper wire around the heater located under the evaporator. make it long enough to go about 2 inches into the drain. don't let the wire touch the sides of the drain hole or touch the bottom of the tube, this will prevent the drain from freezing. i recommend using the heat probe from whirlpool but the wire will work too. hope this helps.

Keeps clicking on and off

It sounds like your condenser fan might not be working, and causing your compressor to over heat. When you turn it down, the thermostat isn't demanding as much run time so the compressor isn't on as much, thus not overheating. Take off the back panel near the floor and see if it is turning or not. Also make sure the condenser coils underneath the frig are clean. If not them vacuum them out.
When it comes to the ice issue, you will need to be more specific. Where is the ice forming? And is it ice or frost?
