Sounds like drain tube in the freezer is plugged. If you remove the back wall in the freezer it will expose the cooling coils and the drain tube. The drain tube is filledvwith ice most likely. You can defrost it with a hair dryer and hot water. Or unplug the unit for 24hrs.

Thanks for your input.

 

I did check the drain hole it was clear, I like using a 1/4 plastic tubing as a long straw to suck up hot water and melt the ice a turkey baster works good also

the WP top bottom units get plugged up all the time.

 

Take care,

So now I went out on a Kenmore MOD#36378562895

It is also dripping into the frig and I took off back panel in the freezer there was no ice in the trough, I pour water into the trough and it goes right into the fresh food going down the back wall, I did take off the cover for the cold control area.

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks.

Go to the back side of refrig and remove the defrost drain tube that runs down the back of the refrig and clean out the water trap/cane end of drain tube and make sure not clogged with gookus at the rear grommet to tube connection.

I didn't think this unit had that tub so I didn't pull it out, I'll do that next week,

Thanks,
