SOURCE: refrigerator drip

My SZ 550 (fridge over freezer) dripped constantly. Turned out to be a frozen drain tube, located 6 inches above the refigerator floor, centered on the back wall (cold side of refrigerator). Remove both trays and the lower glass shelf to see it. This tube runs down, behind the freezer, dumping refrigerator condensate in the pan below the freezer. If it's frozen the condensate leaks out the front of the fridge, down and onto the floor.
The fix, suggested elsewhere (not my idea) is quite simple and elegant. Thaw the tube (this will take an incredibly long time.) Fish a string (I used a piece of yarn) from the refrigerator (cold) side of the tube, down and out the other end, under the freezer. I was able to use a vacuum to suck the yarn through. Be creative. Once the fish line is in, tie a piece of nylon fishing line to the yarn and pull it through the tube. You have replaced the yarn with a stronger fishing line, which you can use to pull a piece of copper wire (I used common 14 gage romex, stripped of insulation through the drain tube. Leave the copper wire in the tube. If you wind the bottom end of the copper wire around some of the warm evaporator coils under the freezer the heat will be sufficient to keep the tube from freezing. I did this about a year ago and have had no problems since. Good luck.

SOURCE: Water dripping into refrigerator from freezer

DRAIN TROUGH IS PLUGGED OR FROZEN. EMPTY FREEZER AND REMOVE LOWER TRAY TO SEE A HOLE ALL THE WAY IN THE BACK USUALLY IN THE CENTER. CHECK TO SEE IF WATER CAN DRAIN THROUGH BY POURING A CUP OF IT INTO HOLE. IF IT IS FROZEN POUR HOT WATER UNTIL IT THAWS, IF PLUGGED REMOVE THE OBJECT.

SOURCE: Kitchenaid Icemaker leaking in big drips on front of freezer bins

Either the inlet valve is stuck or the icemaker solenoid is shored.

Most likely the second one.

SOURCE: Hissing noise in freezer

When you observe this is your compressor quiet? Then most likely your refrigerator is in defrost mode. The water is coming off the evaporator (think of a very cold radiator) as the defrost heater element warms. This element is similar to the electric heating element in the bottom of your electric oven. the water hits it and it will hiss. This is part of the normal operation of a refrigerator. The defrost cycle usually lasts from 20-30 mins and will occur 4-6 times a day. If you are having trouble with frozen food melting then re-freezing, or the temps are on the warm side, you might need to have your defrost timer or defrost termination switch looked at.

The freezer door leaks water from the water/ice dispenser. The dispenser fills up with water. Items in the freezer door almost seem as if they never freeze. All items in the door are much less frozen...


Leaky dispenser-------
Your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is probably leaking. disconnect the water line coming out of it and see if you have a slow drip. Try the dispenser to see if it's just drips after use.

Model KSRS25FGWH01-water is dripping inside the freezer ice bin.


If it overfills and drips, look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water.

If it continuously drips, replace the water inlet valve on the back where the house water supply comes in.

Kenmore elite - Water dripping from freezer to refrigerator


Your refrigerator has a defrost drain blockage behind the evaporator in your your freezer compartment. Some models like yours have leak in the turns as the water leaves the freezer. I recommend that you unplug and remove the cover to the evaporator and check the defrost condensate tray below the evaporator. A wet vacuum cleaner and poring a solution with clorox in the drain will help you clean locate the leak and where the blockage may be downline.. I do have the manual on yours and can help you solve this. Some times this is a factory defect and I can help you solve the freezing drain problem. Let me know, Sea Breeze

Your water hose that connects to the back of the freezer may be loose. Move the fridge out away and in the back make sure it is tightend.


Let me know if it helped :)
