Question about Kenmore Refrigerators

Water leaking into the refrigerator from the freezer.

We have to put bowls in the back of our Kenmore refrigerator because water is leaking from the freezer. It is about 8 yrs. old and a top freezer type.

    We bought this refrigerator used, and it seems to work fine, in fact it is very cold and we have frozen milk sometimes. But main problem is water leaking from freezer into main compartment. I put a large container under to catch water and it fills up. There appears to have been a cover or something over the space at the back center, because there are hinges, broken. I can't find an item number anywhere inside and have not pulled it away from wall yet to check there. Any ideas or suggestions? Thank you

You have to defrost the freezer part and drain tube in the freezer,a hair dryer works well,if after you defrost it and freezes again its your defrost timer,make sure its fully defrosted first before buying the defrost timer

Our kenmore top freezer is leaking (dripping water) inside the refrigerator section from around the dial area. Can fill up a small bowl in about 12 to 24 hours.


Most likely your defrost water drain is plugged. You will have to pull the panels off the freezer, to expose the evaporator. the defrost water drains by gravity thru a hole in the pan under the evaporator. Clear it of debris and or ice, check for any accumulated ice. reassemble. Remember to turn off power before attempting repair and be careful not to bend or puncture any refrigeration tubing

Kenmore bottom freezer refrigerate leaks


Hello, this sounds like you have a blockage in the drain tube, remove panel back of freezer..you may see ice build up...melt ice with hair dryer/heat gun...you will see a pan below evaporator...melt ice in pan...dry water up in pan with paper towel...now you should see a hole in pan that leads to drain tube...pour some hot water in pan..wait a couple minutes..mop up water and repeat this step 2-3 times....once you have done this find some flexible curatain wire or electrical wire..poke down the hole until you see the water drain..now it is clear..put back panel back and you are good to go. The reason you see water in the Freezer is because the water has been leaking into the freezer instead of running into the drain hole...If you need any further assistance please feel free to comment again. good luck! P.s Please don't forget to rate my solution thanks! Mike.

Water leaking in refrigerator then freezing in bowls I have placed to catch water in


I had the same problem a while ago. I cleaned the filters in the back of the refrigerator and it stopped leaking. I guess you would want to clean the filters it might work for you as well. And also make sure the temperature in the fridge is right. Hope it works.. GOOD LUCK.

Roper Refrigerator, top freezer leaking water into refrigerator


This is usually caused by a plugged freezer drain. The back wall (or floor) of the freezer may come out to access the drain. Clear out anything visible and run a stiff wire thru it. Test with a cup of water. Hope this helps!

Kenmore Model 78185891 type C21TFA95, water leakage problem


you have a clogged defrost drain tube. removing back panel of freezer will give you acess to drain trough, melt away the ice with a hair dryer, youll find a drain hole under there somwhere,pouring boiling water down the drain will clear it pretty quickly( i use a steam machine purchased from the infomercials works awesome, after you clear it and all water drain down tube wrap a piece of solid copper wirearound the heater( black calrod heater right above the drain trough) and stick it in the whole maybe an inch or so. now everythime the heater comes on to defrost it will prevent the hole from freezing over
