My upright freezer has collected water in the bottom and froze. What caused this and how to fix it?


Defrost cycle causes it. It comes from humidity in the air. You might have a blocked drain line. Try defrosting the unit for 24 hours and clearing the blockage in the back. There should be a half inch hole for water to drain out.

Ice in the bottom of freezer


Greetings,
the drain is clogged most likely...remove lower shelves, baskets, remove rear panel if self defrosting.. find the drain hole and use a hair dryer or hot water to defrost ice..once the surface ice is off...you will need to make sure there is no ice in drain tube going down under freezer. use a squeeze bottle with hot water and force it into drain. do this repeatly until water runs free down drain....Bruce Denton

I have a Kenmore upright freezer-model LFFH2067DW2 -the red light has been on for at least 12 hours and the freezer is defrosting-water is leaking on the floor-there is a vent insidethe freezer and the...


Hi,

I was made aware of your concern and would like to offer a few ideas you may want to consider. Water dripping down is not a leak during defrost condition as this would be the ice melting. Normally, there would be a drain hose specifically to channel the melted ice/water to a drainage system. The amount of water would then be proportional to the amount of ice melting as with the length of time to completely melt, drain away.

Perhaps you could check the filter/drain screen as well as the drain opening for any blockage/clogging. You could also try checking the same on the drain hose as well as for possible kinks. Additionally, there would be a sensor behind a boxy cover that triggers the system back into operation. If there is still melted ice/water inside the freezer, then the sensor would prevent the unit from turning on completely. You may want to check this sensor and verify that it is dry.

An exploded parts diagram would help you identify/locate the above mentioned parts.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Kenmore upright freezer


You should check the drain hose inside underneath the freezer.This is done at the back down below. Mine was looped too high and water could not get out. I took the loop off that was holding the hose and now water can drain away without freezing. You can pour warm water down the drain hole to melt the ice in the tube if you remove the grate covering it inside the freezer. I have read that several Kenmore upright freezer
owners have the same problem. I was astonished that this was the problem and I had put up with it for too long, defrosting the freezer every 2-3 months!.Give it a try!
