Question about Refrigerators
I have a 1998 Kenmore refrigerator that has a top freezer. It is leaking water from the freezer into the refrigerator. I have to put a large bowl on the top shelf to catch the dripping water. I need to empty the large bowl every couple of days. I unplugged the refrigerator and let it thaw however the water is still dripping. I recently unplugged the ice maker.
What is going on and how can I fix the problem.
You have a clogged defrost drain tube. removing back panel of freezer will give you acess to drain trough, melt away the ice with a hair dryer, youll find a drain hole under there somwhere,pouring boiling water down the drain will clear it pretty quickly( i use a steam machine purchased from the infomercials works awesome, after you clear it and all water drain down tube wrap a piece of solid copper wirearound the heater( black calrod heater right above the drain trough) and stick it in the whole maybe an inch or so. now everythime the heater comes on to defrost it will prevent the hole from freezing over
