I need help with my refrigerator... BIG TIME!

9 posts in this topic

Hey folks...

Our refrigerator fills will water (below the bins). It is a Kenmore brand frige.

I've read a number of sites instructing me to flush the drain tube (thus, eliminating the problems). I have looked just about everywhere for this "tube". There are no holes in the bottom of the refigerator or in the bottom of the freezer... nor are there any little collection boxes in the middle of the frige or freezer.

So my question is... where can I find this elusive drain tube? I did notice a number of slots along the lower back wall of the freezer. There are about 3 of them. They are horizontal slats about 1/4" thick. Food was shoved up against these. Are these what I should be looking for?

Please help me with this seemingly simple problem.

Best,

TSAND72

Need the model number so we can see who made this for sears and bring up diagrams of the guts of the box to see what type of defrost drain system this unit has.

I'm sorry... I was so excited that I found a place to get an answer that I forgot to include the model number. Hence, the model number is: 363.9751511 and the serial number is: L536 49752.

Thanks a ton!

Best,

G.E. frig, with the Kenmore name on the front.....Take your freezer apart and look at ref # 226, drain funnel, and# 622 drain trough...also #315-drain tube and grommet.

I'm assuming this picture is showing a diagram of the floor of the freezer? So I have to take the floor apart to get at this parts?

Thanks,

Yes, this is correct or start at the back of the box and check the drain tube and grommet to see if the blockage is there first. Might be able to clear it from the rear area without taking the freezer apart.

Sorry to keep asking seemingly silly questions, but when I look in the freezer (in the rear right corner) I can't visibly see the drain funnel. So, I'm assuming (again) this funnel is somehow hidden under the freezer floor and that the drain trough funnels condensation to the funnel out-of-sight.

Thanks,
