Kenmore side by side. Noticed water dripping out

Kenmore side by side. Noticed water dripping out of front of freezer onto floor. Slid bottom freezer tray out and noticed a sheet of ice on the floor of the freezer. Also noticed ice adjacent to drain hole. I removed all of the ice using hot water, blow dryer, etc. and poured some hot water dow drain hole.
Two weeks later, water is again dripping out of freezer. While removing ice again, I noticed small droplets of water appearing (falling) on the back plastic wall above the trough that leads to the drain plug. Not sure if this was because the freezer door was open or another problem. Removed all the ice last night and again poured hot water down plug.

Water is slowly dripping onto the floor from the bottom of the freezer door. it is as if the door is full of water. any suggestions?


ARe the temperatures good inside the freezer? If they are not near 0° F, that is the cause of the water drip.

If it is nice and cold in freezer, check freezer floor, is there a sheet of ice? you have a clogged defrost drain, clear it or have it cleared for you.

The drain heater goes into the drain,not outside it.
You need a longer drain probe to push all the way through the drain.
Look underneath for a kink in the drain tube.

Kenmore side by side water leaking from freezer


You can buy a kit from whirlpool. In the kit is a metal tab that mounts onto the defrost heater. It is long enough to go into the hole. When the heater comes on for defrost the heat transfers down to the hole and keeps it from getting plugged up with ice. Part number 819043

sounds like you have a gap in the door seal, which results in condensation forming inside unit. Use a blow dryer to heat the seal around the door and ensure that the fit is tight.

Kenmore 54246400 water on floor - from inside bottom freezer


check the drain hole in the freezer. must likely it is plugged. use hotwater and towel and slowly melt the ice to open the hole. also check the hose that leads to the drain pan. ((back or the buttom of the freg.) it may also need cleaning. use a soft wire (electric wire with small piece of towel tapped to the front).

Water Freezing in bottom of Freezer and dripping out front of freezer door


this could either be a blocked drain from the freezer not allowing defrost water to escape or the defrost heater failing to turn on due to a faulty defrost heater or defrost timer not enabling the water to escape
