Water Pooling & Freezing


Assuming your fridge has a defrost cycle ( I.e. is a frost free model), you are probably suffering a blocked drain hole or pipe, leading to the top of the condenser or a tray nearby, where the frost water can evaporate.
The pipe can block with food or a mould plug, leading to water retention that freezes and further blocks the drain. the water is produced when a heater switches on in defrost mode and thaws the internal or external ice build up and, with nowhere for it to go it will pool on the bottom and may, when in defrost mode, run out onto the floor.
With frost free fridges/freezers, there is a drain outlet, usually hidden behind a removable panel inside the fridge/freezer compartment or, a drain hole near the bottom. If there is a drain pipe as well, access is usually from the rear base of the machine. The pipe is usually removable and can be cleaned out but prepare for some water to escape. An ice block in the drainage hole can be thawed using a hair dryer BUT GENTLY, so as not to warp the plastic inners of the fridge.

My kenmore fridge model 56723 is not cooling that is the fridge side. the fan is spinning very well but the compressor is very hot. funny enough the freezer appears to be cooling okay


Its defrost problem, the freezer should cool, then freeze, then defrost cycle should start. In your case freezer is cooling, then freezing, but its not defrosting. That's why fridge section is not cooling.-------

Freezer leaking on Kitchen Floor


the pipe which is located at the back of the fridge/ freezer may be blocked or hanging outside of the designated collection chamber designed for this purpose. Unplug from the mains and pull the appliance away from the wall so you can see and get to the back of it. At the back of it you will see a pipe coming out from the bottom of the cooling fins and will go down and the end of it will be sitting inside a shallow plastic collection unit - not covered but open. Itusually is sitting on top of the condenser unit. (this is a large sealed metal structure whic has pipes coming out of it and is the largest item in that area at the back bottom end of appliance). If there is some liquid in it then either move the pipe end into the dry area or emty it out. Sometimes there isnt a collection chamber but the pipe just drips onto the condenser and evaporates - usually on self defrosting certain brand named products but dont know much about that. Use a pipe cleaner to clear out the pipes from inside the fridge out toward the back using that pipe. the drainage hole is inside the fridge at the back and may have some sort of cover or plug in it. remove that and clean it and use the wire or pipe cleaner to shove doen the hold and clear the entrance and exit. Test pipe functionability by pouring a small ammount of water down the drain hole and see it coming out of the back via pipe. If still leaking make sure the vent areas in the back of fridge and freezr are not covered expecially in the self defrosting models. basically dont overload the fridge or freezer coz this causes blocked vents, difficulty derfosting on self defrosters, water builds up and gets out via the tube as it should, but more water than can be evaporated will cause puddles on the floor

A funny smell and i think it might be the temperature


Adjust the knob to 3 or 4 which would be the midway temperature.

0 would probably be off or close to it. The 7 would be coldest and freeze water.

If this is manual defrost you need to turn it off and defrost it. The frost will keep it from getting cold enough. The buildup is normal from humid warm air when opening the door. You might get a standalone fridge / freezer thermometer (about $5) to tell you what temperature is. The smell may be food spoiling from warm temperature.

Freezer side not freezing


It appears that the defrost bi metal control is hanging up and during the defrost the temp in the freezer is going too high. It is supposed to terminate the defrost at around 50 degrees. This usually occurs in about 20 minutes, if the defrost heater stays on for too long the freezer temp goes too high. Change the defrost bi metal

Ice tastes funny and a strange metallic or plastic type smell


Sometimes the smell comes from something in the freezer or even the refrigeratior and makes the ice taste funny. My suggestion is to clean out the freezer compartment of anything frozen that has been there a while and may have freezer burn. That may be the funny smell you are experiencing.
Hope this will help you.

Water dripping from freezer


a quick fix I found is to hang a peice of copper wire from the defroster bar in the freezer and let it hang into the drain tube when the defroster bar gets hot it heats the copper to prevent the freezing,but the thing you should do is check the resistance with an ohm meter across the defroster bar,if its ok its the defroster assembly located in the fridge
