Hi Folks, here is my problem (whaaaaa, my wife is turning me crazy)...

Kenmore  Refrigerator from Sears, coldspot 106.60832101  MFG 03/02

Recently we moved, I guess refrigerator came in bad position... After few days off, the refrigerator is leaking water, from the bottom, I removed the water from pan under the box, but next day is full again...and continue leaking...

I imagine it is condensing too much water every day....

Just point me to right direction, no to mention $100 box to call sears technician...

Thanks....

Hummmm, this is odd.  If it is defrost drain water check to make sure the doors are sealing properly.  If you have an ice maker hooked up look to see of somehow the water valve or lines to the frig are leaking water into the pan. If you moved into a real humid area opening the doors a lot will cause extra frost but have not seen this cause the pan to overflow...

Pegi, I do not have ice maker. We moved two blocks ways, and I understand it came laying down (just  for 15 minutes and then back to normal position. After two days off we turned on, and temperature looks fine, freezer and box...just the draining water on pan overflooding...

How do I check if doors are sealing properly? I will check visually this afternoon.

Do think that a sears technician will solve the problem?

By the way,  this is site is "best of the web"...gretz

Use the Federal Reserve Note (FRN) test: take a FRN (any denomination will do, I usually use the $1 ones since that's all Mrs. Samurai lets me have) and successively close the door on it around the entire perimeter. It should always require a slight tug to remove the FRN from the gasket closed on it. If not, then you have identified a gap. Simple as that.

That’s amazing…how this could happen…

 

Sunday morning’s fight again with my wife…finally she wants a new refrigerator…then  I came again,  I examined the drain hose, put some hot water and bleach as instructed…cleaned the drain pan… but I decided to keep an eye on the leaking, I left the refrigerator away from the wall just to check in intervals…3 hours later…not water in the pan, not water at all…but water around the wall…amazing the water came from the wall…watering system had an imperceptible leaking…only with the flashlight I was able to find it….I cancel the watering device from the wall… and problem solved….

 

Final advice, do not give it away…I trust this forum…and the applicantology’s masters…Here goes my donation …coink…See you next time.

o.k, i'll bite ..............  how is it again that the water leaking in the wall found it's way into the evaporation pan(that just plain defies gravity!)- seems to me you would notice the lake forming in the kitchen/basement long before you would just "happen" to notice the evaporation pan was full. ????

Sounds like there's a leak in the icemaker water supply tube behind the wall! Better turn of the saddle tap valve taco-pronto!
