SOURCE: Ice build-up in freezer - Kenmore Model C978-66795-2

don't know this appliance but for guidence:
some appliances have the evaporator in a compartment at the top of the freezer and the drain comes out of the back and runs externally to the drip tray. there should be a grill in the compartment so just peer into it and see if there is ice build up.
wherabouts is the freezer ice forming?

SOURCE: remove panel

the freezer panel has 2 fan motors, one for the i/m area and the other for cooling. there is 1 screw in the center of the panel, remove it and then the panel will have to be wedged out. it may seem like it is tight but go ahead and pull on the panel and it will come out.
before you can do this, you will need to remove the drawer and rails so you can get into the panel easily.
p.s. you didnt say why you want to remove this panel???
by the way, these units have problems with the fan motors causing poor cooling in the refr section.

yes you have to take off the ice maker then remove the scews, sometimes there is a air channel that has to be removed which are held in by plastic tabs

check the fan that transfers the cold air from the freezer to the fridge. thats where it comes from if you didn't know that. also check the the fan on the condenser at the bottom of the fridge. it should be blowing hot air off the condenser to facilitate the elimination of the heat from the condensing unit, just like your a/c does on the houe.

SOURCE: I have ice forming on floor of freezer. Kenmore Coldspot model 106.64244400, our research says we need to defrost and remove back panel to clear the drain, but we have no idea how to remove the panel

If the water is showing on the freezer side, more than likely you have a clogged drain. This occurs when the machine goes into defrost and the melted ice somehow is prevented from draining and therefor refreezing and blocking the drain for the next defrost cycle. The best way to resolve this is to unplug the machine for atleast 24-48 hours to let all ice melt. If thats not an option that you want to use the actual repair method would be to 1) unplug the machine 2) empty everything out of the freezer so you'll have room to work 3) take all the shelving and baskets out 4) locate the screws on the rear wall inside the freezer and remove them 5) take the back panel off exposing the evaporator coils ( the aluminum ) 6) directly below the coils is a trough of sorts and the drain is usually in the middle and runs out the bottom, remove the ice by carefully chipping it out or by using a hair dryer or hot water. 7) once all the ice is gone, the drain is visible and water can flow smnoothly down the drain dry the area and reassemble.

My stand up fridge (freezer up)has water pooling under the veggy trays, Kenmore special edition. model # 970-622810


The drain in the back of the freezer is clogged with ice. Turn off the refrigerator, remove everything from the freezer, remove the back and lower panels, and you will see what I am talking about. There will be a lot of ice everywhere. All of this ice should be removed. In the very back of the freezer, there is a drain. Make sure it is clear, then put everything back. This should solve the problem.

Evaporator fan noise. How do I access the evaporator fan motor to replace it?


Turn off the refrigerator. Remove the freezer shelving and bins. Remove the screws holding the rear panel inside the freezer. Repair or replace the fan motor.
You may also have to remove bin supports from the side wall to get the panel out depending upon your model. The model number posted is incomplete.

Kenmore colspot freezer drain line keeps freezing


Hi, The defrost drain behind the rear freezer panel is plugged. Remove the rear panel and clear the ice away from the drain. Then you will need to flush the drain hole with hot water to make sure it is open.
Some models require an after market drain heat kit.
Please get me your model # and I can look this up to let you know if you need that heat kit.

Thanks
Vic
