There is a shroud at the back of the freeezer. (Mine was a GE) but under the shroud is the evaporator coils and also a heating element to defrost the coils during the defrost cycles. Mine had the gutter underneath misaligned and the water went into the freezer and froze instead of going down the drain. I thought it was a ice maker leak until we found that. The weird thing is we had the refrigerator for about 6 years before it started leaking like that.

It has worked fine for about a year since that "fix"

The icemaker on my older kenmore side by side refrigerator doesn't make ice?


What you are probably dealing with is the little valve called (Water Valve) on the back of side of the refrigerator usually down low towards the bottom right hand side if you are facing the back of unit. Its the part that the water line run into and also will be a water line coming out of it going up the back of the fridge and goes thru into the freezer to the Ice maker in the freezer

I have a side by side Kenmore refrigerator model #363-9562510. Water leaks from the bottom right corner of the freezer door from a small round cut out hole. This is the door that has the ice and water...


couple of things to check if you have a dispenser on this model there is a hose that goes up into the bottom of the freezer door you need to remove bottom kick plate and take a look at this...also if no water from that hose and its actually coming from the door you could have a ruptured line in the door itself.... next make sure the water is not actually coming from the freezer compartment as the drain in the freezer could be clooged and leaking over on defrost mode and out door...
hope this helps good luck...

Ice in bottom of freezer and leak


There are drainage paths to provide a way for water to exit to the pan located under the cabinet, during the defrost cycle in all 'automatic' defrost units. Depending on their construction, these can become clogged with solid detritus or mold.
Unfortunately, some of these will be sandwiched between the inner and outer shells making them very difficult to access.
You might try entering your make and model number on the page at the link below to see if Sears has a line-drawing illustration of your unit; these can often be helpful in determining how tough a given job might be.
Sears Parts Direct
They offer parts for 1000s of appliances other than Kenmore.

Water gushed out freezer door, possible solenoid problem?


The drain is clogged. The drain is usually located inside the freezer on the bottom shelf to the rear. Use a meat baster and a solution of 1 tsp. baking soda and 2 cups of hot water-not boiling to unclog the drain. You probably also have about 1/2 inch of ice build-up on the bottom shelf. This will have to be removed first.
