Water under the crisper drawers.

7 posts in this topic

I have a Kenmore fridge. For awhile we have had water leaking under the crisper drawers, and I have to clean it out before it spills on the floor when I open the door, well It's gotten to were I have to clean it out twice a week now. I've moved the thermastat bottons, but I don't think that's what it is. I cleaned the coils the best I could under the fridge, and ideas would be appreciated. Its driving me nuts:yikes:

Saying something is a "Kenmore" is like saying a 4-wheeled vehicle is a "Car" - Kenmore is the Sears Generic Name - Sears does NOT actually manufacture their appliances, so we're going to need your oh-so-happy model number, which will tell us what company was contracted by Kenmore to build stuff.

You probably have a plugged or frozen defrost drain. When the machine goes to auto defrost, the water don't go down the drain, you find it inside instead.

Find the drain, clear it out.

The model number is 106.9738310, the 106  the source code for Whirlpool.  The drain is either clogged under the evaperator behind the freezer wall or where it drains into the cup under the freezer compartment at the back of the food compartment.  Access these 2 areas and remove the blockage, before your insulation in the walls get wet and start smelling.

Remove everything from the freezer and remove the back panel to see if the drain is blocked in the freezer drain trough.
