You have a partially plugged drain, causing water to flow too slowly. Try reaming out the drain with a long stiff wire until water flows thru it like a faucet. You may have to unplug the unit for a day to get every part warm enough. Hope this helps!

Leaks water inside from the ports or vents under freezer but in fridge


Your problem more than likely is a plugged defrost line in the freezer...The freezer goes through periodic defrost cyles to keep the coils from freezing up. The water catches in a trough pan in the freezer and flows through a drain hole to the bottom of the fridge where it evaporates. This drain hole perodically freezes up and the water accomulates under the freezer bottom until the water level reaches your vent ports to the fridge section. Open your freezer and on the bottom floor of your freezer you should see two screws near the front on either side. Remove them and then take out the bottom tray....this will expose the drain hole near the rear of the freezer compartment. You will more than likely have to remove ice under the tray in order to see the drain hole. Remove the lower back panel on the back of the refrigerator and you should be able to see the drain line coming from the freezer. Unplug the refrigerator before you begin work. It will take a little while for the drain line to thaw to allow liquid to flow to the bottom. I find a hair dryer pretty handy in speeding up the process. To verify you have unplugged the drain line you should be able to pour hot water in the drain hole in the freezer and see it come out at the rear of the fridge in tube line just above a little catch pan

Kenmore Elite 795.75542401 Water freezes on the bottom & then spills out to the floor. We can't find a drain hole anywhere!!


Hi,

There is the drain in the freezer under the evaporator. You have to remove the rear panel in the freezer and the freezer floor to access it. Defrost it using a hair dryer and put hot water through the drain to make sure it's clean. Make sure the bottom end of the drain hose (behind the rear cover) is clean as well. Vacuum everything in the compressor compartment and keep it clean.

Freezer door is leaking water at the bottom of the door


This sounds like the defrost drain on the freezer side is stopped up causing the drain to freeze over then eventually running out on the floor during the defrost cycle.

If you can see ice on the bottom of the freezer floor, then this is likely your problem unless your ice maker is leaking from the top of the freezer.

Locate the drain at the back of the freezer and thaw it out using hot water. Using a screw driver or other object gently push down into the defrost hole and dislodge whatever is stuck there.

An air hose with good air pressure may also work well. When the drain line is clear you should be able to pour water through it freely.

Kenmore side by side water leaking from freezer


You can buy a kit from whirlpool. In the kit is a metal tab that mounts onto the defrost heater. It is long enough to go into the hole. When the heater comes on for defrost the heat transfers down to the hole and keeps it from getting plugged up with ice. Part number 819043

Kenmore colspot freezer drain line keeps freezing


Hi, The defrost drain behind the rear freezer panel is plugged. Remove the rear panel and clear the ice away from the drain. Then you will need to flush the drain hole with hot water to make sure it is open.
Some models require an after market drain heat kit.
Please get me your model # and I can look this up to let you know if you need that heat kit.

Thanks
