Question about Refrigerators
I have a Kenmore 253.71822104 freezer over fridge refrigerator. Water is leaking on floor in front and can also sometimes be found under the two crisper bins at the bottom. Nothing else feels wet! I will check for gasket looseness per Bob Villa's site, although I'm not sure how to replace this nor do I know how to check for any other things which could be causing the problem (clogged defrost drain system).
Some other info: I have two cats and I suppose it's possible their fur may have clogged up the vent at the front bottom?...sort of doubt it, but it's possible. Also, I recall having a sticky gasket at one time (ie, the door would make sticky noises when opened/closed)....perhaps it is the gasket? Would that cause water to be found under the crisper bins? Yet, I see no droplets on the gasket itself......
I don't have the ice maker hose attached to a water supply as that had gotten crimped well over a year ago (so the ice lever has been pulled up to avoid any issues there) and had since then made sure the back of the refrigerator wasn't too close to the wall. Please help me fix this leaking issue. It started 2-3 months ago. Thanks!!
You have a blockage in the drain tube, remove panel back of freezer..you will see ice build up...melt ice with hair dryer/heat gun...you will see a pan below evaporator...melt ice in pan...dry water up in pan with paper towel...now you should see a hole in pan that leads to drain tube...pour some hot water in pan..wait a couple minutes..mop up water and repeat this step 2-3 times....once you have done this find some flexible curatain wire or electrical wire..poke down the hole until you see the water drain..now it is clear..put back panel back and you are good to go. the reason you see water in the fridge is because the water has been leaking down the vent instead of the drain hole...If you need any further assistance please feel free to comment again. good luck!
