Question about Kenmore 72073 Top Freezer Refrigerator
We seem to need to defrost every month or so because ice builds up on the shelf of the freezer on top and then melting ice water flows into the refigerator.
We are careful to not leave the freezer open.
Sounds like 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
