Question about Kenmore 73502 / 73504 / 73509 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Kenmore Elite 795 75542401

Hi, My Kenmore Elite is 3 years old. Ice keeps forming in the bottom under the freezer bin, and makes it not shut completely. I have removed an approx 1 cm layer of ice several times already this month. I turned off the icemaker in case the water is leaking into the bottom, but to no avail. I do have my AC off this summer. Could it be condensation from outside air that then freezes? Thanks, ER

    I have basically the same problem (also 3-years old). Water pools and freezes in the ice bin, a few cubes. My solution was to turn it off until I have time and energy to empty the freezer to look for a fix. This is one of many problems with this refrigerator. Plastic parts are breaking off everywhere. The clip that holds the door shut broke, several pieces of the veg and meat bin gliders have broken off and the catch on the veggie bin door broke. Sears dept manager says they are just cosmetic problems that wouldn't be covered by their extended warrenties anyway (door latch cosmetic?).

I replaced my "entire" ice cube maker (tube,hoses,water pump, ice maker) and it still pooled water at the bottom. I removed the back panel in the freezer and noticed the ciols go through a defrost cycle and water forms in tray under coils. I removed the lower panel on rear of fridge -and found a drain hose near the water solenoid/pump. I blew compressed air into the hose and hopefully unblocked it so it can drain into the pan not the freezer.

Glide rails on kenmore bottom drawer freezer keep freezing up


I suspect that you've got a leaky ice maker. Do you have clumps of ice in the bin, too? Many times, replacing the ice maker will solve the problem.

Upper portion (frig not cooling properly) Lower portion (freezer) forming ice on #3 setting.


Is it forming ice or frost? It sounds like an automatic defrost problem. If the freezer frosts up it won't circulate enough air up to the fresh food compartment. Try defrosting it manually for 24 hours by shutting it down and leaving the freezer door open. Afterwards, if it resumes normal operation I would bet that there is something faulty in the defrost circuit, i.e., defrost heater not working or defrost control.

It's freezer fan hitting with your bin drawer when it's over ice formed behind the freezer. It's due to malfunction of defrosting. Keep 5 degree thermostat setting. And check thermostat by turning counter clock wise. If shuts off the fridge, it's working. If not replace thermostat. Check defrost timer set in proper setting. Once defrost cycle is good, no banging sound will be there. Thanks.

Turned off the fridge, emptied the Freezer, used a blow dryer for 20-30 minutes, to melt ice that had built up in vents at rear of freezer.
