Drip can can be easily removed by a slight pull. Some times its way may be locked with ice formed in between. In that case apply some force on pulling.

How do i remove a drip pan from a kenmore refrigerator


The drip pan collects water when the freezer goes into a defrost cycle. Most times there is very little water and the water evaporates quickly. When there is a problem with the freezer or the water does not evaporate between defrost cycles, the drip pan fills with water. If the front bottom of your refrigerator has a grille, you access the drip pan from the front. If there is no grille, access the drip pan from the rear.

Instructions
Rear Access

1 Unplug the refrigerator from the wall outlet. Pull the refrigerator away from the wall so that you can access the rear of the refrigerator.

2 Look under the refrigerator with a flashlight and locate the drip pan. Often when people install refrigerators they neglect to pull the packing from around the drip pan. The drip pan may have tape or styrofoam around it.


3 Remove any packing material away from the drip pan and pull the drip pan out from under the refrigerator.

Front Access

4 Pull the grille at the bottom of the refrigerator below the refrigerator door with your fingers. The grille secures to the refrigerator with plastic clips.

5 Remove any debris from the access area and throw the debris in the trash. The coils and fan under the refrigerator attract dust and dirt. Clean out the area with a lint brush if you have one.

6 Pull the drip pan out from under the refrigerator.

The drain pan under my refrigerator stinks really bad how can i remove it to clean it


The drain pan can be removed by lifting up the refrigerator and removing the four torex screws on the bottom of each side of the refrigerator. Use 2 pieces of 2x4 to hold up each side of the fridge while removing these screws. After removing the screws the bottom panel will separate from the refrigerator and you can remove the drip pan from the panel as it isn't attached by screws. The pan is VERY fragile and removing the drip pan is a two person job. I recommend just pouring bleach into the drip pan to kill any bacteria causing the smell by removing the back panel which will be held on by several quarter inch screws. You'll see the white drip pan on the right hand side of the fridge looking from the back.

HOW DO i GET TO THE DRIP PAN ON MY KENMORE REFRIGERATOR MODEL 106.57024601


Hi!
you can get to the drip pan removing the base grill in front of the unit. There is no need to empty the tray, since the water that drips into it is consumed by the evaporator. Some drip pans are even fastened by screws and can't be readily removed.
Good Luck!! Don't forget to rate this post!!

Foul odor from back area of fridge/Kenmore bottom freezer


I had the same problem, but just fixed it. I have a maytag bottom freezer and when the fan blower comes on, there was a foul/stale smell that permeated the kitchen. There is no drip pan that I could remove to clean.

I just removed four screws from the back cover of the fan blower area, reached in with a small cup of organic odor remover and poured it into the drip pan just under the fan blower.

Any odor remover would work. probably vinegar or enzyme odor remover would work, too.

I now have fresh smell when the fan blower comes on.

Need to remove the drip pan under my Kenmore side by side fridge.


Mine is a whirlpool side-by-side ED5GTN which must be the same design as your Kenmore.
There is no way the drip pan will come out without tilting the refrigerator backwards.
The tape is removed, the foam packing, the filter removed, the pan is not flexible enough because the pan broke.
I have worked on this until my hand is bleeding from struggling with this poor design. Custumer service was no help..said, "Well, I don't know."
I'll wait for help to tilt the thing because there is black mold and I want all removed from the bottom of the refrigerator. This design is not only "NOT customer friendly but unhealthy for your home."

Refrigerator leaking water


There is normally a small shutoff valve installed in the water line servicing the ice maker; you might shut off the flow of water until you locate the problem.

Most drip pans can be slid out but it would be wise to lower the level with sponges or similar to avoid any more spillage than you already have.

If the 'knob' is centered it is probably the release knob for the grill, behind which is of course the drip pan.

Before damning the ice maker (although they are among the most unreliable devices known to man), I would pull the fridge out and examine the fitting where the water line is attached.
Any lime buildup or green corrosion around the fitting would imply that the leak is external to the cabinet and the leaked water is only accidentally making it to the drip pan.

If you haven't been getting blocks of ice in the cube storage bin, the shutoff valve is apparently working so you may get lucky locating the source of the leak.
