SOURCE: hole

you have punctured one or more of the refrigerant lines. Your chances of fixing this are slim, but if you can find the hole, you can solder it shut, then pressurize the unit with new refrigerant. The former you might be able to do yourself. The latter will require you to get a repairman who has the necessary refrigerent and valves to re-load the unit. I would guess the cost of repair is probably more than the unit is worth.

SOURCE: Is there a replacement part for the freezer

The evaporator can be replaced and a damaged line can be repaired. It's not cheap as a qualified tech will have to recharge the system besides the repair. With the proper model number you can look up parts here. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action?psid=26129238&sid=PSx20071217x00001a Model number help here. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/modelnumber_locator.aspx

Water dripping in fridge from below frezer


There is a drain tube that runs from the freezer/ evaporator compartment that allows ice melt water to drain from the defrosting cycle. Often times that drain hole will become clogged with food debris, glass from a broken heating element, paint chips from scaling and mildew, etc. When that drain hole gets clogged the water has no place to go except down into the fresh food compartment. Unplug the ref and remove the food and ice maker and racks. Remove the freezer back panel and look for a drain hole and clean it out. I use a wet/ dry vacuum at first and if the clog is deeper I will use compressed air to blow the line clear. You can also use a water hose with water pressure. Best done outside of the house.

That water is from the melting frost of the automatic defrost cycle. Their is drain in the freezer behind the back wall under the evaperator coil that is blocked, so instead of defrost water draining it's pooling in the freezer or in some case espically on models with the freezer on the top,the water is leaking from the freezer vents into the fresh food compartment.
The way to clear the drain is remove back plate and remove all ice build up and GENTLY make a small hole in drain through then totally flush w/warm water.

Model rb17ka-1al food section not cooling but freezer works fine


That is gonna be a bad fan motor up top OR the drain pluggs up and puddles water between the two sections. The freezer works fine but no cold air can get to the fresh section below. Seen it. Thaw here out and yank out the floorboard of the freezer. Clear the drain and oil the fan motor. No parts needed.

Generally you have to remove the back panel of the freezer. There you will find the freezer coil and fan. the defrost water drips off the coil during defrost and gravity flows down thru the drain. Hole should be in center of unit. Those drains plug up. clear drain.and make sure panels go back on correctly

Water dripping from freezer into refrigerator


Hi,Most likely the drain in the freezer is clogged up and frozen. Every time when your fridge automatically defrosting defrosted water dripping inside the fresh food compartment. You have to remove the back panel in the freezer and using a hair dryer defrost the drain which is located under the evaporator coil. Then put very hot water through the drain until it goes free.
Yes, you need to remove the back panel inside the freezer, It should have screws that come out then it should pull off and out.

On your model, the defrost drain hole/line is located inside of the freezer behind that back access panel, just remove that back panel, remove your freezer floor panel FIRST(Has 2 screws in front), that simply pulls out, then you will see the drain hole under the evaporator coil. It may be iced up, you will have to clear all of the ice and run hot water down the drain hole.

Once the back panel screws are removed that panel should just pull off, pull hard. Make sure your refrigerator is unplugged first.

Good luck.

Hi,

The defrost drain is located just under the cooling coils in the back of the freezer. You will need to unload the food and remove the shelves from the freezer. Take the back panel off from inside the freezer and you will see a hole just below the coils. Flush it with hot water using a turkey baster or small hose. See the link below for more details.

Behind the panel in the freezer there is a drain hole that is underneath the evaporator.  It is frozen over.  Take the back panel off and get all of the ice out and run hot water down the drain until it is clear.  When the unit goes into defrost some of that ice melts and drips down thru the vent into the fridge section.
