Question about Kenmore 55612 / 55614 / 5561 / 655619 Side by Side Refrigerator
I have been noticed lately that water drains into drip pan at bottom of fridge. Not very much, but enough to concern me. What could be the cause and how do I clean it out?
You should not be concerned about that. It is a good thing that the water goes to the pan. Depending on your Kenmore model number there is a time set either mechanically or electronically to cause the freezer to go into defrost. The defrost water runs down a small pipe and enters that condensate pan where the fan and heat from the compressor and condenser return the moisture back into the room or home. The problem is only when that drain line becomes blocked is when the real problems happen. Please rate me if this helped you or not rate me if I did not answer correctly y explaining more clearly that this is the subject. You can clean the pan with clorox and water but that requires unplugging the refrigerator and pulling away from wall removing cover behind compressor and wiping clean. The only reason you would need to do that is if food or something spoiled inside refrigerator and that would be done through the freezer and back panel. Ask me later about that. Right now I think you are working fine, Thanks, Sea Breeze
