Question about Kenmore 73502 / 73504 / 73509 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
Water pools on the bottom of the freezer, then freezes. Eventually there's too much and it leaks out the bottom, making a puddle on the floor. I know it has something to do with the defroster being plugged up but don't know what to look for.
Self-defrosting refrigerators dispose of the water generated during the defrost cycle, usually via a tube or channel that directs the water to a pan at the bottom of the refrigerator. From the pan, the water normally evaporates. (See a more detailed explanation of this in the How Things Work section of our website).
If the tube or channel is clogged or obstructed, the water backs up and leaks into the inside of the refrigerator/freezer compartment. Then the water builds up at the bottom, inside of the refrigerator/freezer. When the water has built up for a time it may spill out of the front of the door opening. To fix this problem, clear the drain tube or channel and allow the defrost water to flow down to the drain pan.
