Kenmore refrigerator model 253.68989801. Inside/bottom of freezer door keeps accumulating ice. I think gasket is faulty??? It is not flush against fridge when I close the door and I can feel cold air with my hand. Tried looking up this model number on repair part websites, and they say it is incorrect!! Help??? I am not stupid....I am reading the number directly from the door.

Refrigerator is about 13 years old, items in the refrigerator section are freezing up ice accumulating in bottom of freezer, is it worth it to get fixed?


=if it is worth getting fixed or not is up to you. many times the ice build up is cased from an improper fitting door gasket or a stopped up condensation drain line. try thawing out the freezer first. empty it, remove all the contents then leave the door open. after a wile it will become room temperature and all the ice will melt. look to the back of the freezer for a drain line, yo might find a small hole. flush it out with warm water in a squeeze bottle. you might be able to unclog the line and you problem should be solved.

The defrosting heating element may have burnt out. Also if the gasket around the door/drawer isn't sealing correctly moisture from the air leaking in could be condensing inside and then freezing causing the build up.

Refrigerator was making a 'Thump'' noise every so often and just stopped working. Freezer is still working It's a kenmore elite 3 door bottom freezer refrigerator model number 76539


Unplugging for an hour won't allow it to defrost if that is what the problem is.

Look inside the freezer at the back wall. Look for heavy accumulations of ice building on the cooling coil, which is behind the back wall panel. You may have to look in the louvers or past where the evap fan is located.

Once we know if there is heavy frost or ice there, we'll have a better idea how to resolve. Is there any warranty on this refrigerator that you know of, besides the 5 year compressor warranty?

Candy fridge freezer the fridge part keeps icing up on the back of thr compartment why is this


Sounds to me like the door gasket is faulty and letting moisture into the fridge section,the ice is the moisture freezing once it gets inside and it will accumulate in the coldest part of the fridge(probably the back of the fridge)cause thats where the freezer air inters the fridge section, change the door gasket and it should be fine.

Water accumulating in bottom of kenmore


It's likely the condensate drain is plugged. You can access it from the back of the refrigerator. You can disconnect from the inside of the fridge and blow it out to ensure it is not blocked, then reconnect.

Kenmore - over under


Adjust the feet to raise the front of the frige, which should be higher than the back. Therefore the weight of the door will keep it shut or at least cause it to shut itself if it pops open.
