Question about Kenmore Refrigerators
Water is dripping out from the middle top behind where the light bulbs are. How can we fix it? What could be causing this?
Most likely the defrost drain in the freezer is frozen shut. take out the back wall of the freezer and check under the evaporator. if its a whirlpool built kenmore you may find a sheet of ice on the floor of the freezer under the plastic floor/tray. if this is the case, remove ice, thaw drain with a turkey baster and hot water. wrap a piece of thicker copper wire (pencil lead size approx), around the defrost heater and push into drain about 2-3 inches, making sure it doesn't touch the sides of the drain, this will keep the drain from freezing shut. if its a frigidaire built remove the control from the inside of the ref and silicone around the opening where the water drains from the freezer into the drain cup that is built into the back of the control panel. that will keep the water from running along the ceiling of the ref and dripping. hope this helps. if not put model number with problem.

Tips for a great answer:
Hi friend, thank you for your post!
Based off your post you are having trouble with frost on your rear wall and water dripping from the top middle section on the inside of your Frigidaire refrigerator. Sounds like you may have a possible problem with an air leak or water leak. I would suggest checking your seal to make sure there is no leak. You can do that by placing a dollar bill between the body of the freezer and door. If the bill comes out easily then the gasket may be causing frost to develop due to an air leak. I would recommend exchanging the gasket out. If the gasket is sealing properly then it could be an issue with the water line and you should perform a manual defrost that could help clear out any restrictions in your water line. To perform a manual defrost you would need to disconnect power from your refrigerator for roughly four to six hours. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt
