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

Fridge warm, freezer has frost on back panel & is defrosting, fans work, just changed defrost thermostat, no air is moving from freezer side to fridge side, drain pan under fridge is dry


this fan needs to run when the compressor runs,check fan blade for being jammed by ice if you have this much ice on back wall as ice will stall motor,if no fan there will be no cool air to refrige compartment also the defrost drain tray will fill with water then freeze over which in turn floods the freezer floor and refrige compartments cause it cannot drain to the pan in the bottom

My kenmore elite refrig keeps leaking water from what appears to be condensation. It gets so bad that the ice maker door freezes shut and water actually drips on the floor. The freezer is set to 0 while...


The high level of condensation is due to constant opening of the fridge when the frost develops. It is required to defrost off the condensation and if this has an auto mode timer for defrost , then it is possible that it is not working.
The water must drain out to the drain tank but since it is formed out of the freezer the water flows out of the collection tray.

Water driping on top shelfe from freezer,


The drain most likely was blocked by food debris and the water from defrost cycle had no where to go...unplug refridge...chip some of the ice along the bottom carefully or use heat gun to melt ice...when the tube becomes exposed put some hot water in the drip pan..this should help the ice melt in the drain tube....use a straw or curtain wire to clear blockage...you should see the water suddenly drain down tube...put everything back together...this is not a temp issue but more a blockage issue.

Sounds like your icemaker is overfilling if you are finding a layer of ice in your freezer compartment. I would change your water valve located in the back of the unit. Or look at the icemaker to see if there is ice cycles hanging down from the tray. If you do not see any, you may want to look at your freezer drain to see if it is clogged causing water to be drained in your home. Coulc be several different things honestly. Hope this helps!

I replaced my "entire" ice cube maker (tube,hoses,water pump, ice maker) and it still pooled water at the bottom. I removed the back panel in the freezer and noticed the ciols go through a defrost cycle and water forms in tray under coils. I removed the lower panel on rear of fridge -and found a drain hose near the water solenoid/pump. I blew compressed air into the hose and hopefully unblocked it so it can drain into the pan not the freezer.

New Kenmore Elite ice dispenser not working but water is


Should be no longer than 24hrs. Is the freezer good and cold.. has to reach a certain temp before icemaker activates. Might take little longer if you put a lot of warm things in freezer or refrig. when you made the change. Is there any water or ice in the icemaker itself? Water may not be getting to icemaker call them back out if it dont work soon thats what warrantys for :0)
