Water has frozen at the bottom of freezer and water is causing a puddle under the refrigerator/freezer. Is a common problem? What is causing this? How do I fix this?
How do I verify which model kenmore I have?
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...

When water is leaking inside of your refrigerator, the problem could be as simple as condensation from humidity or a worn gasket, especially since you purchased your refrigerator used. The problem could also be a clogged drain or frozen evaporator.
To help you determine the problem, along with solutions that you can use, check out Refrigerator leaking water inside for some simple troubleshooting steps. I hope that helps!
when the refrig.goes through a defrost cycle the water from the melted ice is supposed to go out a drainline to a pan inthe back.most likely the drain has plugged up and needs cleaning.remoe shelving andtake back panel off drain hole is located below coils,be carefull of coils ,delicate
Generally there is a water tray at the very bottom that can be slide out and in with a hose attached to it. its for excess drainage.. with the moving of the refrigerator is sounds like maybe the hose can loose and causing youre puddle. I would start there first.
I would check the defrost drain inside the freezer. this is real easy to do on this model refrig.
remove bottom basket (if it isnt frozen in place) and the shelf above it.
in th back just below the coil cover in the freezer section there is a ledge that will most likely be frozen over remove this ice using a hair dryer or hot water which ever is conveinant for you
you should uncover a drain hole flush this drain with hot water I use a turkey baster or large syringe to forcefully push water thru to clear anything in the drain
put it back together and you should be good to go
when ever the unit goes into defrost (which is about twice a day) the water runs over the ledge and then out of the door by the hinge puddling up next to the wheel.
this unit has a hard fiberglass drain pan that is built in and unless it has been dropped i cant imagine the drain pan being damaged.
Let me know if you have any other questions Peyton
take back panel off inside freezer. you will see a drain tray at the bottom with a drain hole in the middle. this is blocked with ice. melt off ice with a hairdryer and follow up with hot water till it flows away freely.
also check the drain tray heater is ok
