Water leaking into the refrigerator

We have a Sears Kenmore upright refrigerator (freezer on top) model # 105.70967990, ser. # EJ412042, mfg. in 10-99 that has recently started intermittently collecting water in the left vegetable drawer and on the bottom of the refrigerator; it's happened twice in the last two weeks---one time the water was so high that it came out the door onto the floor. The refrigerator has an icemaker but it is not hooked up to a water supply. Any suggestions? Jim

Hi, You have a drain plugged in the frezer. Your model # doesn't come up but what you need to do is remove the rear anel in the freezer and clear the ice. If the floor of the freezer has two screws holding it, remove it as well.
Please check the model# again and I can assist you further. There is an after market deat transfer strip you might need to add to prevent this from reaccuring.

If it is a frost free model, the defrost timer could be stalled in defrost. Other than that the thermostat could be the problem.

Model 106-74269401 mfg date 6/05. Constant pool of water on interior top shelf leaking from freezer above. What is standard repair?

That is most likely the defrost condensate pan inside the freezer has frozen over and closed the drain opening. Once that happens then the water has no where to go but the freezer or the fresh food compartment. Below is a link to different ways of this happening. Just choose the section that resembles your refrigerators problem. The water freezing over does not always need to go to the extreme measure to prevent it. It's possibly something blocking the line between the freezer and the pan under the refrigerator. Let me know what you find, Thanks, Sea Breeze

You are missing a number in the model number. The model number most likely should be 5969555510 this number runs in the sears system. You need a number 9 in front of the 555510 try this. it seems that this is the only model that will run with what you have provided.

Defroster leaks

you have a cloged evap. drain. the rf is defrosting properly but with the drain be clogged the water has to go somewhere which is generally in the crisper draws on top and bottom models. two way to clear up this issue. turn rf OFF for at least 48 to 72 hrs. to allow the drain to de-ice or take matters into your own hands and take the back panel off of the freezer and using boiling hot water pour it down the evap. drain tube until it flows like you just flushed a tiolet
