Question about Kenmore Refrigerators
Water collecting and overflowing under the vegetable drawers at the bottom of fridge. Non ice model Kenmore 106.69172990
Usually this is a common problem most often caused by a blocked drain hole or a crimped/blocked drain tube. The water comes from melting of frost from your refrigerator’s freezer, which is melted during defrost cycles.
The water then flows down a drain system, usually from a hose that takes it outside of the refrigerator, and into a drain/overflow pan. This pan has many names: drain pan, condensing tray, overflow tray, evaporator pan, but they all serve the same function, as place holding place where water from the freezer is caught and held until it evaporates naturally.
Blocked drain line when the freezer goes into defrost.
