The drain in the back of your freezer is frozen. When the defrost cycle runs, the water has no where to go except through the panel into your refrigerator.

Turn the refrigerator off. Take everything out of the freezer and store it someplace for a few hours. You can either let the freezer thaw on its own or help it out a bit. If you want to speed the process, remove the rear and bottom panels from the inside of the freezer to expose the coils and the bottom pan. Stay away from the coils. Melt/chip away all of the ice in the pan. With a hair dryer, melt the ice in the back of the pan. Soon you will see the drain - concentrate on melting the ice in it. Some hot water and a sponge can help speed the drain clearing process. When the water drains freely, finish drying out the rest of the freezer and reassemble the rear and bottom panels. Turn the refrigerator back on, and you are good to go.

Started leaking water accumulated on bottom shelf in lower level. now top freezer takes 2 days to freeze ice, bottom freezer vent clogged.


The drain is clogged. When the drain clogs it can also clogs the airflow vents. Remove the back wall of the freezer to access the drain. Remove all the ice blocking the drain and the vents. Then use a trukey baser to force hot water down the drain until water flows freely. Then mix water with baken soda and pour it down the drain. http://www.appliance-repair-it.com/refrigerator-leaking.html

Then get a turkey baster and fill it with hot water. Insert it in the drain in the bottom and squeeze it cleaning the drain. Several applications will solve the problem, and do not forget the freezer side as well.
Good Luck,

Kenmore refrigerator leak


I have an Amana refirgerator with a top freezer and had the same problem. I turned off BOTH the frig and the freezer for 24 hours. That allowed every thing to dry out. It has been running now for a week with no problem.
