Question about Refrigerators
I have a Kenmore Model: 10652274202 Kenmore Side by Side.
Every now and then from left bottom side of the door where it is the freezer, it leaks water, and can not find the source.
I have my dispenser is broken and not working for 2 years, so that can not be the cause and took every thing out and could not find a ice water pipe so I can tap it in case the water circulation is iced up.
Can you help to fix this problem?
My phone number 818-489-2801 and email
This sounds like the defrost drain line is clogged and frozen. Every 8-12 hours the defrost cycle melts the ice buildup on the coils and is supposed to drain out to the pan under the fridge. Once this is blocked or freezes up the next cycles continue to put liquid water over the existing ice which then freezes, etc. till finall the area is frozen enough for water to find it's way out the door seals. You will need to take the back interior panel off the freezer side to view the coils and drain line. It will take lots of hot water to melt the ice in the drain area and the drain line in order to run a cleaning tube (basically a piece of 1/4" tubing like the water line tubing a couple feet long that you can force down the drain to make sure it's not plugged). Once you push the cleaning tube down the drain and can see it come out the other end in the drip tray pull it back out and pour hot water down it once more to watch that it drains fast. That should do it!

Is this a self defrost refrig. if it is then it might be doing that, which then you might want to look for the drain that is suppose to drain into this pan. It might be missing the pan try that, let us know thanks.

take out everything and at the lower inside back of the freezer you have a drain ..... pour hot water till it opens / the water comes from you evap when it goes into defrost and it cant get out the drain / Larry

If you look at the bottom of the facial plate, underneath. There are two slots to insert a flat screw driver. You should be able to access everything once you take that off. Good luck
