Question about Kenmore 55612 / 55614 / 5561 / 655619 Side by Side Refrigerator
The water captured in the defrost drain pan on my Kenmore / GE side by side freezer freezes up causing water to pool in the bottom of the freezer and then this water freezes too. What can cause the water in the defrost drain pan to freeze up? The drain is clear. Couls to long a heated defrost cycle cause this problem?
Check under the base, the tube must be clear to the water tray, often there is a rubber flow restrictor, this either perishes or blockes, either way remove it, defrost over night and then turn back on, should then work ok within 24hrs. Regards Adbvisor

Remove back of unit and check defrost heater has not become detached, otherwse the is only two possibilities, one a defrost fault and although you say the defrost tube is clear the only reason it does not flow is due to a restriction, what can happen is that the water backs up the drain pipe and then freezes before the water in the external tray can evaporate.
