Kenmore cold spot refrig 60184001

Water pools at bottom of frig

Posted by on

  • bbthelen Dec 23, 2008

    The defrost drain line in the freezer, freezes up, and since the "defrosted ice" in the freezer can't go anywhere, it refreezes in the bottom of the freezer. This builds up until it starts running down into the refrigerator during the defrost cycle. What a mess! And it soaks everything it can get to in the frig. The only thing you can do is turn the unit off, empty tht freezer, take the bottom tray off the freezer (two screws),let it thaw out,and **** up the water. It takes a long time to thaw all tht way back to the drain pipe in back. this seems to be a design problem!!

Chances are if they are getting cool but not cold-

1) the evaporator fan in the freezer is not running
2) Defrost heater has failed
3) Defrost sensor has failed
4) Defrost timer/refrigerator control has failed.

Check for ice build-up on the back wall of the freezer. If there is ice, unplug or turn the unit off for 6-8 hours with the doors open (put any food in a cooler with ice to maintain). Note water may come out of the refrigerator.
Plug the unit back in or turn it back on, close the doors, and check temperature after a couple of hours of operation. If all OK, you will need to have the above tested, or, if you know how to use a multimeter and can read a schematic/wiring diagram, I can instruct you on how to check the above.

Your defrost drain hole is frozen closed.
Remove the back freezer panel and defrost the ice with a hair dryer.
Once the drain is clear poura 1/4 cup bleach in the drain hole.

Water is slowly dripping from the top of Frig.


The water is coming from the defrost cycle in the top of unit . It drains down at the back of the light cover into a tube at the back. Get a phillips screwdriver and take it down to be sure tube is inserted properly. Get model number and go to.appliancepartspros.com to get a diagram.

Water is forming on the floor. Appears the water is pooling under the crisper drawer, then seeps through the seal. GE TBX 18CI. Any ideas?


You should not have any water at all forming inside the frig compartment unless you have a water dispenser on the frig. The water resevoir is located in the frig compartment at the bottom behind crisper. There may be a small leak or loose water connection on it. Hope this helps.

WATER LEAK IN FREEZER POOLING AT BOTTOM & FREEZING THEN MELTING


The problem was indeed a clogged frost water drain. I had to pull the frig out from the wall (found an incredible amount of dust accummulation in the alcove), then remove the vertical metal and horizontal cardboard covers to expose the drain catchpan. The 1/2" rubber drain hose end was only about 1/8" above the pan pointing directly into it perpendicularly. This was not enough clearance. There was a plug (formed by dust and water) in the end of the hose that came out easily when I 'roto-rooted' it with a screwdriver. The water flowed easily after that, but I went ahead and trimmed about 3/8" off the end of the hose and pushed it back into its slot. Then I cleaned as much as I could. The prevention is to keep the area behind the frig cleaned!
