Question about Haier HTE21WAAWW Top Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Overflow of condensation water

I have a 22 cubic foot top freezer, refrigerator, Model number HTQ21JAARSS. It has been overflowing with condinsation water enough to collect a half gallon of water per month. The resevoir pan will overflow on to the floor unless I collect it with a make shift collection tube and half gallon container. Any input regarding defects of this model would be acknowledged and how to repair would be apprecieated.

    Hi Charlie,
    That's sounds like a logical answer but this unit does not have an Ice Maker nor is there any water lins hooked up for drinking. I too have never seen or heard of a refrigerator spilling so much water from the defrost evaporator pan.
    Thanks again for your expert input.I'll await to hear more

    This sounds more like a slowly leaking water supply line which is dumping water into the defrost evaporator pan -- never heard of that much water coming from a defrost cycle. Does it have an icemaker? -- I checked it on-line, but no info on icemaker. Charlie

If you have a water filter the water will leak past the filter to the pan if it's clogged up and needs changing.
The defrost water drains to the pan, so if you are having a lot of frost it could fill it up. Excess frost can be caused by leaky door gaskets and frequent door openings.
The condenser fan near the pan should be running when the compressor runs to help evaporate the water in the pan.

What to Look For in a Refrigerator

Buying a refrigerator is an issue that is too complicated to many types of refrigerators that are available today. The function of refrigerator has actually gone beyond the basic of keeping food cooled and chilled. There are features that are equipped in most advanced refrigerators now. Therefore, choosing the right one that suits your family will take some time and require some basic knowledge on refrigerators. Here are a couple of things that you need to look out when buying a refrigerator.
The first thing that you need to decide is the capacity when it comes to buying a refrigerator. The rule of thumb here is to go with the general guideline where a family of two needs at least 10 cubic feet of fresh foot storage. You can add extra cubic feet for additional person in your family. Therefore, an 18-cubic-foot refrigerator is the smallest unit that you should get for a couple. A family of four needs at least a 22-cubic-foot refrigerator. Of course, if you can afford bigger refrigerator, the better it is. But be reminded that it takes more electricity to operate a bigger refrigerator which leads to higher electricity bill.
Adding to the capacity, the size of the refrigerator is also important. The size can sometimes be a limiting factor in determining the refrigerator that you want to buy. In a case of a family that needs a 22-cubic-foot refrigerator but the space in your kitchen can only accommodate an 18-cubic-foot unit. If that is the case, you should probably make some space by removing certain items in the kitchen to fit the 22-cubit-foot refrigerator. Or else you can consider a side by side refrigerator if space is a concern. A side by side refrigerator consists of a freezer that is adjacent to the refrigerator. The advantage of side by side refrigerator is that it needs less door clearance which makes it ideal for a narrow kitchen.
Other factor to consider when buying a refrigerator is to select the type that suits your living style. There are several types of popular refrigerators in the market ranging from the commonly used top freezer, bottom freezer, side by side to the exotic French door unit. The top freezer is the most commonly seen refrigerator due to its affordability and simple design. Besides, the top freezer is also the one that has the least problem. Therefore, reliability issue seldom exists in top freezer refrigerator.
The bottom freezer model is equally comparable to top freezer but it's slightly more expensive. The advantage of bottom freezer lies in the convenience where more frequently used storages are placed at eye level. It's claimed that people with back pain problem should use the bottom freezer refrigerator to alleviate the back pain since you don't have to bend to access the food in the refrigerator.However, people will sometimes accommodate a side by side refrigerator in their kitchen. One of the reasons behind it is that, these refrigerators are often equipped with plenty of extra sophisticated features that offer loads of conveniences to its users. Other reason might be due to the exotic look of these types of refrigerators instead of the normal top and bottom freezer units.
Note, if you planned to get a refrigerator that is more than 22 cubic feet in capacity, consider one which is Energy Star qualified. An Energy Star qualified refrigerator means energy efficiency. An energy efficient refrigerator is very conservative in terms of electricity usage and it might help you to save some utility cost. One thing for sure is that you might be able to get rebates of up to a few hundred dollars for trading in your old refrigerator with a new Energy Star qualified model. A lot of utilities companies and even the local government do offer this kind of rebates. Therefore, do enquire the sales persons when you are in the stores.
All in all, buying a refrigerator is not that of a difficult task. All you need is some practice and some basic knowledge in refrigerator. Please whenever you really want to buy a refrigerator , make sure that you have done some research on the model that you are looking for ,the things that you want to look out and the cost of purchasing and the features so that when you are at the store, you will really go for your choice from your re-search.

What size is my Kenmore 106.56699501 refrigerator


I chatted with someone at Sears. They told me it is approx. 22 cu ft.

Alternatively, you could measure.

The first step is to open the refrigerator door. Measure the depth of the refrigerator from the front edge of the refrigerator opening to the back wall. Make sure that you measure in feet and not in inches. Note the depth measurement on a piece of paper.

Then, measure the height and the width of your refrigerator's opening. Note the two additional measurements on your paper. Multiply the depth, height and width measurements to obtain the refrigerator's cubic foot measurement.

Take the same measurements from the interior of the freezer. Multiply those measurements together to get the cubic foot size of your freezer.

Add the cubic foot measurement of the refrigerator interior to the cubic foot measurement of the freezer interior. This gives you the total cubic foot measurement for the refrigerator.

The fridge keeps leaking water underneath,the freezer part keeps iceing up down the bottom under the draws,the water is the main problem.


Water in the drain overflowing can be the reason for the water spilling,it can be the defrost overflow or the leak from the evaporator tubing's to the drain. So drain off and check perhaps more condensation is the result of the overflow.
The icing can be related to water formation from the food or leak from the evaporator, high frosting can blow the water inside the freezer.
So set the freezer temp a little lower so that the freezer shuts off than to make it run continuously.

Example 1: 60 inches tall, 42 inches wide, 30 inches deep = 75600/1728 = 43.75 Cubic Foot AREA
Example 2: fREEZER dIMS = 24 DEEP x 18 HIGH x 36 WIDE =15552/1728 is 9 CuFt. Refridgerator 36 wide, 36 high 28 deep = 36,288/1728 = 21 CuFt. + 9 CuFt. = 30 Cubic Foot Capacity.

Water leaks from underneath


Make sure your drainage tube is not plugged.
Check inside the back of your fridge to make sure the little cup that collects condensation from your freezer compartment is not plugged with food or ice.
(I had that happen in my fridge,different model). I had lots of water on the floor of the fridge until I found this solution here on fix-ya.
Also, make sure your fridge is set right for the the humidity levels you have may experience.
Get a hold of the manual for your fridge if you don't have it, and make sure freezer is not too cold.
If you have a lot of condensation on the outside of your door, look inside your freezer and try some different settings.
I'm not sure if this helps at all. Try blowing with a blow dryer on your condensation container area on the inside of the fridge.
I'd love to know if this helped.
