Water pooling inside fridge

The fridge in our office lunchroom has been working well.. however, every month when i go to clean it out, there is a pretty large amount of water under the bottom foods drawer. I've messed with the temperature settings, the only result being the puddle of water was frozen when I turned the temp way up. I'm not completely sure of the model.. it is a Kenmore side by side with ice maker/water dispenser.. it says "frostless 25" on the door. It is also VERY full most of the time, and the seals around the door look a little worn. Thanks!

    It turns out, there was a crack in the cold water reseviour tank inside the fridge. It is where water is stored to cool before it comes out the faucet on the door.
    I am going to try to disable the water supply to that, without cutting off the water to the ice maker.
    If anyone has any tips on how to do that, it would be much appreciated.

Pull the ref out. remove panel at the bottom on the back of the ref. the water valve has two solenoids on it. one for the i.m. and one for the cold water. unplug one solenoid. does the water dispenser still work? yes: you've unplugged the wrong one no: you're good to go.

You need to remove all of the styrofoam packing material.
Any insulation material would be installed inside the body of the fridge/freezer.

That is all that it is there for.

You can try to clean the impeller ether by removing the pump basket and reaching inside the hole behind it to feel for a clog. Do this with a screwdriver or needlenose plier.

Also you need to kill any alge before you run the pool.

Water pooling at the bottom of kenmore fridge

I had a Kenmore fridge - about 20 years old when I replaced it this year. It used to do the exact same thing especially in warm/hot weather. What it is is the water from the freezer defrosting. There should be something on the back near the top, inside the fridge sticking out - a tiny little tray sticking out and it may also be part of supporting one of the shelves, I can't remember. Anyways, water from the defrost pools in there and is supposed to evaporate, but it gets clogged with gunk and the water spills out and runs down the back of the fridge down to the bottom. Get a pipe cleaner or something and poke it into this hole and clean out the pipe to the hole isn't blocked. This is all inside the fridge, not outside, on the back panel outside. That's the best I can do to describe the solution - it's an easy fix you can do yourself. Good luck!

If the defrost heating element, defrost timer or evaporater fan weren't working, you'd develop a block of ice on the evaporator. Is the compressor running? If it is, it might have bad valves from the frost buildup scenario. Liquid refrigerant could have gotten to the suction valves. The sealed system should have a five year warranty. Might be time to call a pro
