Question about Kenmore 73262 / 73264 / 73269 Top Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Water build up in the freezer

4 yr old Kenmore top Freezer 73262303. It has an ice maker which has never been hooked up to a water so I know that is not the problem. However, over the last month or so the bottom shelf of the freezer (right side) I have to remove ice build up from water coming up from the back and filling the groves of the bottom of the freezer about every other to ever day. The fridge seems to be working just fine.

When your refrigerator defrost the condensation has no place to exit to because of a restriction in the drain and that could be water that has turned into ice or possiably a food partical or foreign object. Defrost it compleatly by leaving freezer door open for aprox. an hour at least make sure ref is level front to back an d you should not have this problem anymore. Please rate me and let me know if this helped. Thanks

Ice maker water leak in freezer. 8 yr old Amana std freezer on top, water actively leaking from ice maker into bin. Is it worth repairing?


Probably the solenoid (electric valve that opens and let the water from the supply line go into ice maker when It calls for it) is leaking and needs to be replaced ,it's not an expensive job. To make sure this is the problem ,shut of the ice maker by putting up the lever and wait a few hours and look inside the ice maker , if is water inside ,that's the problem ,if not the ice maker is the problem and has to be fix or replaced ; but is better to replace it ,won't be a big diference in cost.

Ice build up on freezer floor.


Hi, If ice is building in the freezer, you have a defrost drain hole plugged. Unplug the Fridge and then remove the rear panel off the freezer. There you will find ice built up in rain. Remove the ice (hair dryer works best). Once the ice is gone, you need to make sure the drain hole is open all the way. A baisting serringe with hot water works really well.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can assist you further. Please rate my answer so I know how I am doing.

Thanks

Ice maker flooded top freezer compartment


It may be just the water control valve on back of refrigerator. Put tap water in ice maker and lower lever for on. After ice is made, does it drop to tray? At this time when empty is the time the control valve is asked for water. The problem could be in valve on back or the inside ice maker itself. If you can try a few test with me I will help you locate the problem. Let me know what you find as I go through this with you. Sea Breeze

Water accumulating in top shelf of refrigerator


Get yourself a thermeter and see what the tempeature is in the freezer. It should be "0" degrees or colder. If it is hanging around 30 degrees +/- you may have a compressor or control problem. You may have a drain tube clogged that takes the water out of the freezer. I am not familar with your model but many freezers are similar.
