Question about Kenmore 20.6 cu. ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Water is accumulating under the vegetable bins on my 12 year old kenmore cold spot 70172990. The refrigerator keeps every thing cold and the freezer is fine too, just the accumulation of water. Understand something might be clogged....just don't have manual and dont know what exactly i am supposed to do to clear it. Wear is the drain or pipe that needs cleaning? Help!

Try looking at the vent on the lower shelf on the left hand side. Make sure it is not covered and it is not clogged with dust or 'food' items.

SOURCE: Water accumulating in top shelf of refrigerator

I solved this by emptying everything in the freezer and taking out the floor of the freezer (2 screws - simple) and finding the drain hole covered in ice. I used a blow dryer to melt the ice. Then I used a turkey baster to place boiling water into the drain hole, waiting 30 seconds, using the baster again to remove the cooled water and reapeating this until the ice in the drain tube melted. You can tell when the ice in the drain tube melts completely as you can hear the water falling into the pan in the bottom of the unit (under freezer and refrigerator).

SOURCE: water accumulating under the fruit and vegetable

If you look behind the panel inside the fresh food section there is a drain coming from freezer and then to outside back and down to a tray next to compressor. The drain is most likely blocked there. Let me know if I am wrong, Sea Breeze

there should be a tray that guides water from freezer to a drain located in the fridge section normally held with one screw . take it off and unclog drain ( use a vacuum to **** out sludge) clean tray/guide and mount back on. make sure all moisture is cleaned out after drain is cleared.

SOURCE: water accumulating in vegetable bin on model

This is caused by a clogged drain tube or the door is not closing correctly. Be sure the seal around the fridge door is closing correctly. If not, the drain tube needs to be replaced or cleaned.

If this is an older style top mount refrigerator than most likely the drain is clogged causing the water to leak into the fridge during the defrost process. What's the model number?

Ge model number tbx21jaxerww. Water collecting under vegetable bins


Hi,
The water building under the veggie bins problem is usually a result of the drain under the evaporator coils being clogged with either ice or debris.
The get to the drain, the shelves and sometimes the bins will need to be removed, then the back panel will need to be removed. There usually are a few screws on each side that hold the panel in place...
Then look for the drain right under the coil....if possible run a wire down the hole to make sure it is open to the pan underneath.
If it is frozen then a wire can be used to keep the drain open...here is a tip about how to do that...

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 under vegetable bins, no water in drip pan under refrigerat


If this is a top mounted freezer the drain under the evaporator in the freezer section is iced up. You will need to take the back panel in the freezer off, to get to the evap. Defrost the ice with boiling water, then a heat probe will need to be attached to the defrost heater and down through the drain hole, There is a kit for this procedure.part # 819043

Water accumulates under vegetable bins and spills out the front


the water is coming from the freezer when is defrosts. the drain line is in the back wall of the freezer and may be clogged up with ice. clean out the freezer and pour some hot water in the very back of the freezer, this will hopefully unclog the drain. if not, then you have to take the back wall out of the freezer to get directly to the drain line. there should just be a couple screws holding it; it is just an aluminum or plastic panel.

Too cold in vegetable bins


Air flow ports adjusted correctly? Air flow fan running? I once had a bad temp sensor on the freezer coil that would not let the fan run.

There could be many things that cause these symptons. Defrost timer not working, bad door seals, or lack of freon. It may be less expensive to replace the frige than repair it.
