Question about Kenmore 50522 / 50524 Side by Side Refrigerator
The first time I noticed the problem was when our water pressure was reduced to a drizzle by the utilities co. I found that the ice maker basin had frozen and backed up. Then the water supply was overflowing and dripping down the inside of the freezer and the ice bin. So I defrosted the entire freezer thawled the ice maker. I am no longer experiencing any water from the to p of the freezer but I am still getting ice forming in the basin. So I again removed averything from the freezer removed the back aluminum cover and notice a little condensation on the back cover. I thought that maybe the temp was not high enough and set it too cooler and replaced everything back in the fridge. Not fixed? I am still getting ice formations. I have read other similar problems but I am confused. I can see a drain that has a rubber plug. Is this the same drain that is the evaporation line or is there another one I should be looking for? I do not see a drain pan underneath the fridge so I am concerned that if all of this water drains daily it will eventually end up on the hardwood floors. Please help?
Hi. That is the only drain for the evaporator water during the defrost cycle. Take the back aluminum cover off again and pour hot water into the drain. If it won't drain, take a hose and put it over the drain and blow into it. That will remove the sludge in the trap and it will drain good now. I've seen alot of nice hardwood floors damaged with this problem. Good luck, Mack
