Water Leak around left front wheel

I have a Kenmore 363-59577994, S/N 92331290, freezer/refrig. It is ocasionally leaking water under the front/left wheel(support). Is this the defrost cycle? I moved the appliance forward and it leaked under the same spot. I don't see any wetness around any tubing. do I have a leak in my defrost pan? Please help, Thanks Dave G.

I would check the defrost drain inside the freezer. this is real easy to do on this model refrig.

  • remove bottom basket (if it isnt frozen in place) and the shelf above it.
  • in th back just below the coil cover in the freezer section there is a ledge that will most likely be frozen over remove this ice using a hair dryer or hot water which ever is conveinant for you
  • you should uncover a drain hole flush this drain with hot water I use a turkey baster or large syringe to forcefully push water thru to clear anything in the drain
  • put it back together and you should be good to go
when ever the unit goes into defrost (which is about twice a day) the water runs over the ledge and then out of the door by the hinge puddling up next to the wheel. this unit has a hard fiberglass drain pan that is built in and unless it has been dropped i cant imagine the drain pan being damaged.
Let me know if you have any other questions Peyton

Water leak @ bottom front left with water turned off


this quite simple, inside the freezer compartment lower half there is a removable inspection cover, or what you may call the rear interior wall. remove this cover/wall and underneath the cooling coils is a drain hole for the defrosted water to escape to the pan located under the refrig. This hole is obviously blocked with some object, possibly just ice. As it is blocked the defrosted ice in the form of water cant exit the normal way so it is over flowing onto the freezer floor. everytime the defost element comes on more water will leak. solution is to clear the drain hose possible with hair dryer , or gently running a firm but flexible plastic tube through the drain tube to push any blockage on through. This has to be done very slowly and carefully.

Water is leaking from freezer into lower compartment of kenmore


If you think it is the ice maker then shut down the water supply and see if the leak stops. Most likely though it is probably a blocked defrost drain.

Leaking water from kenmore freezer to refrig below


its possible that the drain pan behind the back freezer wall is clogged or coverd with ice, sounds like when unit goes into defrost melt water leaks under sides of drain pan and into fridge. unplug and remove back freezer wall if drain is covered with ice defrost the ice, can be prevented by loosely coiling a piece of solid copper wire around element and into drain slightly radiant heat during defrost should keep drain fromicing over. if drain is just clogged wth debris clean drain and you should be good to go, hope this helps you.

Brown leakage


I've got a possibilty for you. moisture will build up in the cabinet of refrigs and then cause a little bit of rusty water that will leak out onto the floor. you could also have a plugged drain essentially causing the same thing to happen. look under you veggie bins for water build up. hope that helps. peyton

Kenmore Trio water leak on front left side


We have the same problem for the second time in 2.5 years.

Six months (Dec 2005) after we bought the refrigerator, water was leaking from the door. Sears repair arrived and informed us it was the water tank leaking. Said it wa a known problem and was replaced at no charge (of course, we were also still under warranty - six (6) months out) --- FAST FORWARD 30 MONTHS (May 2008) --- SAME SYMPTOMS SAME DIAGNOSIS only NOW Sears wants to charge me $155 to fix the problem.

I'm gonna be calling and complaining about that!!!!!

Open your left door and look at the flat face under the bottom shelf (you'll see representative water drops). The water tank is behind this panel.
