Hang in there I just may have the solution. There are 3 major components of your defrost system. Behind that rear wall is your defrost heater and defrost heater part=> WR51X10031
Te most likely problem is the defrost timer=> WR9X489_defrost_control and here is where heater and defrost thermostat are located=> 363.50242000 Freezer Section First you need to look inside your fresh food compartment and Click Here=> Control Panel just behind that panel is a defrost timer see if we can force defrost by using a flathead screwdriver slowly clockwise until the compressor and fans stops then after about a minute defrost will begin and after 25 minutes the timer should turn the refrigerator and fans back on. If not replace timer if yes the come on and still no defrost the we need to go into the freezer and replace the defrost heater and defrost thermostat, please rate this solution, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Kenmore model 795.71022.010 water builds up in the bottom of the freezer every two weeks I have to defrost the unit and remove the ice build up if I dont the door wont close


The fan unit behind the wall inside the freezer may have frozen over.
Even though you see no ice inside the shell of the freezer, it can still have blocks of ice behind the back wall.
So remove the 3-4 screws holding the back wall, remove it and check on the ice there.
Make sure it is completely defrosted or ice melted before reconnecting. Leave the wall off while you connect it to make sure the small fan is kicking in.
IF the fan does not kick in. you can get a replacement for $15-$20 at any fridge parts supply house. It is easy to disconnect and reconnect.

Ice on back wall of freezer, food not staying completely frozen


Do you have the complete model number from the tag on the freezer, it should be either on the bottom rail visible with the door open or on the side wall near the front. I am trying to look this up to see if it is an automatic defrost model, if so you may need to do more than just unthaw and adjust

Thanks

Every few weeks the ice in my freezer melts. It


You will need to remove the bottom freezer crisper and check the defrost drain , to see if it is iced over . If so , then use a hairdryer to melt the ice ( hot water also helps ) . When you see the drain , ( could be obvious obstruction from plastic ) , use a small hose inserted into the hole , to blow thru , to remove any unseen debris blockage .
You may have to remove the rear inside freezer panel to access this drain , depending on your model number . So make sure the drainhole is open. When it happened to mine this was the problem.

Leaking water from kenmore freezer to refrig below


its possible that the drain pan behind the back freezer wall is clogged or coverd with ice, sounds like when unit goes into defrost melt water leaks under sides of drain pan and into fridge. unplug and remove back freezer wall if drain is covered with ice defrost the ice, can be prevented by loosely coiling a piece of solid copper wire around element and into drain slightly radiant heat during defrost should keep drain fromicing over. if drain is just clogged wth debris clean drain and you should be good to go, hope this helps you.

Kenmore fridge and freezer not cooling


Check to see if there is any ice built up on the back wall of the freezer. If so thaw the ice and take the back wall out of the freezer. next check to see if the fan is running in the freezer (evaporator fan) This fan is what circulates the air from the freezer to the fridge. If it does run then you have a defrost problem (if ice is on the coils and back wall). Then replace defrost timer, heater, and thermostat.

Whirlpool side by side Refrigerator not cooling, two -- where -18 temp used to be.


the fact the bowl was filled with water and that you said the inside of the freezer was coated with ice, indicates a failure of the defrost system.
now the ice has gone, reset the temps and wait to see what happens

Refrigerator and freezer are warm (Kenmore model 59676509500)


if there is frost on the back wall of the freezer than its iced over (the automatic defrost cycle has failed) turn off the fridge for 18-24 hrs with freezer door open and the ice will melt and it will begin to cool again. It takes a long time for the ice behind the back wall to thouruoghly melt, if it isnt all the way defrosted you will end up with soild ice insead of frost and that will take even longer to thaw Dont forget to rate my solution as solved if I accurately answered your question...Thanks!!
