It appears your drain tube is frozen up or clogged in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Help please - my Kenmore Elite Bottom Freezer not cold - top refrigerator getting warm.


Have pressure taps installed, & check the refrigerant... these refrigerators have a critical charge (meaning not a lot of refrigerant to make them work) So whoever puts gauges on it, make sure they purge their hose while screwing the hose on to the new pressure tap so there is no loss of refrigerant & no air gets into the system. It sounds to me like it is low on refrigerant.

What would cause my freezer to frost up with ice on the top. it is a bottom freezer,, pull out drawer and we have only had it for a little over a year.. it is a Kenmore "elite". model no. 596 7626*


If it is very humid in your area and the freezer is opened and closed often it can cause ice to build up. Try to minimize opening the freezer for 24 hours and see if the automatic defrost will eliminate some (or all) of the buildup.

Ice/frost buildup & loud noise


this is classic compressor failure. the core is freezing due to unregulated pressure in the lines. repairing the compressor will correct this issue.

Refrigerator not cooling


This could be that it is out of balance. Set the temperature settings to midway. This control can easily get the fridge temp out out of balance if over adjusted. If you already have the tmp control at midway then you need to make sure there are no obstructions to the duct that carries the cold air from the freezer to the fresh food section to cool it. Check for ice buildup or any kind of blockage. Let me know what you find.
