SOURCE: My food in my vegetable bin is freezing.

This is a common problem that often doesn't have a clear, permanent solution. The first thing to check is the overall internal refrigerator temperature (see the Appliance Accessories section for a refrigerator/freezer thermometer). The proper temperature should be between 35 and 42 degrees. Here are some things to try:

  • If your refrigerator temperature is closer to 35 degrees, try turning the temperature up slightly.

  • If you find that the temperature varies a lot from the top shelf to the bottom (where it is coldest), try putting produce and other sensitive products on a higher shelf.

  • If the temperature is too low and you can't make it warmer by adjusting the thermostat, you probably have a defective thermostat. If so, you need to replace it, because they cannot be repaired. Other possible problems are a leak in the sealed (refrigerant) system, cold air migration (in side-by-side models) or a defective air damper. These problems can be quite difficult to locate and correct, we recommend you contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

Why is water leaking from front of bottom freezer?


Your refrigerator defrost on the average about every 8 hours so the water that accumulates during defrost has to go somewhere right? You have a defrost drain blockage.
We need to see if the water is overflowing the condensate drain tray or if the blockage is in the turn the drain leads down back of your refrigerator. Much more on this page=> Leaking Refrigerators! Not all blocke drains act the same when your refrigerator leaks so please ask should you have questions. Please provide the model number found around the fresh food section door frame. Kenmore model numbers look like this example=> 321.1234567 If you run into any problems along the way of repair please let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Started leaking water accumulated on bottom shelf in lower level. now top freezer takes 2 days to freeze ice, bottom freezer vent clogged.


The drain is clogged. When the drain clogs it can also clogs the airflow vents. Remove the back wall of the freezer to access the drain. Remove all the ice blocking the drain and the vents. Then use a trukey baser to force hot water down the drain until water flows freely. Then mix water with baken soda and pour it down the drain. http://www.appliance-repair-it.com/refrigerator-leaking.html

Water pooling & freezing in the bottom of a kenmore model 795.75252400 freezer compartment


The problem is the water drain tube in the freezer is clogged. As the evaperator goes into deicing mode the water from the evaperator is not going down the drain tube. Instead it's over flowing those two air ducts to the refridgerator and causing your water problem. But it's not as simple as simply clearing the clogged drain tube. You need to install a heating element inside the drain tube to keep it from freezing during the deiceing process.

Kenmore Refridgerator leaking water into refridgerator compartment from freezer compartment


You most likely have a clogged drain. When you freezers goes into defrost every 8 to 10 hours. The frost that is melted during the defrost drains from the freezer either down through the fridge or out the back and down. Either way it drains into a pan under the fridge. This tube is either clogged or the drain it's self inside the freezer is. Most of the time I find peas stopping the water from draining from the freezer. When the water can't drain it leaks through the bottom of the freezer into the fresh food section of the fridge. You will need to fix this because it will cause other problems. The water that cant drain from the freezer refreezes and will end up destroying the foam in the bottom of the freezer. Water will also leak onto the controls located in the part between the freezer and fresh food section ruining you controls.

There is ice buildup in the drain and maybe under the seperator. Remove the back panel in the freezer and the botom floor of the freezer and remove the ice. Be careful of the styrofoam ducts. Eric

My kenmore is leaking water once a day .


You didn't say from where. Usually twice a day your de-ice heating coils come on and melt any ice that has accumulated. this water usually runs down the back of the ref. and collects in a small pan under the ref. Someime ice form around the hole that the water drains down through to go into the small pan. so then when the deicer comes on the water just runs down the bottom of the ref and onto the floor. My Kenmore does the same thing. Remove everything from the bottom of the Freezer look in the back at the bottom see if hole is clogged with ice. Remove ice then pour hot water down hole check occasionally.

1 year old Kenmore Elite Trio Refridgerator not cooling


There are a lot of things that could be the source of the problem... is there no cooling at all going on in the freezer? Is the back wall of the freezer cold? It could be anything from a fan, to the compressor, to the control board... you need a technician.

I would get on the phone with Sears, and explain the continuing problems you have been having, and they may agree to cover service.

Water leaking out bottom of refrig/freezer


Sounds like maybe two things. Your freezer isn't closing correctly and condensation is forming, bad seal maybe. Other option is you need to clean the pan on the bottom of the fridge. Condensation gathers there and it is normal, but if you alot of crud down there it will cause water to gather. Hope this helps...
